K'NEX Motorized Walking AT-TE from Star Wars
--> View Instruction



In this ible I will show you how to build a K'NEX walking All Terrain Tactical Enforcer (also known as AT-TE), from the Star Wars movies, and Clone Wars series. The model is fully motorized and can walk over several terrains such as: Vinyl and laminate floors, carpets and not un-important: bedsheets
The model is about 50 cm long and built from 810 K'NEX pieces. The model is motorized which means it can walk realisticly in a straight line. It has a big cannon on the top that can rotate 360° and 6 other cannons that can also move slightly.

The building instructions are devided into the following steps:
  • Parts needed
  • Walking Mechanism
  • Adding Legs
  • Front end
  • Armouring the AT-TE
  • Adding Cannon & Finish

I love how it can actually walk, looking quite awesome as usual!

I can imagine six-leg walk cycles being hard to build, great job :D
