Note:

I have updated the spreadsheet to include pieces that have been taken and those in reserve. You are still able to make offers for pieces in reserve however there may be some complications that we will need to figure out. The remaining available pieces are visibly displayed next to the reserved and taken pieces. Shoot me an email if you're interested in buying any pieces!

Where do you live? I might consider buying some but I don't wanna pay a ton in shipping. :)
I'm from England, whereabouts are you? Like I said, if interested it's best to email me :)

Oh sorry I didn't see that. I'm in the US so I don't think it would be worth the shipping cost. :(
Depends on the cost though: I had someone else interested from abroad who was considering buying despite the large shipping costs. I guess it depends on the quantity you're interested in.

sent you an email ! really looking foward to buy knex from you ! ;D
Alright thank you, I shall check it out!

Hey Knexflux!
The time has come to sell my K'nex. After many years if buying, building and holding onto it, it finally has to go.

There are an estimated 18,120 pieces which (in their current storage) amasses to 42.72kg worth of K'nex. Many of which are uncommon and hard to get hold of.

After putting in hours of work I have compiled a spreadsheet of all the pieces and their estimated quantities. Please click the link and check it out! Any pieces that are sold out will be highlighted in red, so be quick or the pieces you want may go.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12vdCFG3vxTeui0zMQCd3L4ZV0kCcfrMC5THKfvKk2go/edit?usp=sharing


If you see anything you're interested in, (including buying the entire lot) please email me at jamiesearle01@gmail.com and we can negotiate a price and work out how you will receive your pieces. Attached are some photos of everything in their current boxes.

Thank you for reading!
- Jamie

You know what, I have been such a d******* for leaving you hanging on this thread. I've still got all my k'nex just sitting there redundant in my room but this year (and most likely next year too) have been so busy. Being my final year of secondary school, the constant overload of homework is making it hard to fit time in to do other things, especially when I am trying to keep a social life too. Enough with the excuses anyway. Just wanted to inform that I still have all my k'nex to sell and when I do get round to selling it, I will most likely (my final decision here) sell individual lots of pieces on Ebay (e.g. All of my blue rods at once, or, all of the ball pieces at once, etc.)

Sorry everyone. And good to see you're still building and coming up with good ideas still :)

I don't think I want to but them if I have to use different money. (I forget what it is called. Euros maybe? ???) Good luck selling them!
Pounds :) I *think* if the money is transferred over Pay Pal it will automatically convert anyway, but you'll have to double check that. But thanks!

Well, if you transfer money with PayPal, you can select the currency which you want to send. There's two options:
1. The sender of money (let's say in USA) selects to send Dollars to the person receiving (in the UK): PayPal converts the money.
2. The sender selects British Pounds to the receiver: The USA Bank account converts the money.

I'm not sure, but that happens when I buy something with foreign currency (I use Euro's, but can pay pounds or dollars)
Ah, thanks! :)

Update:
So, I did rush into making this thread a little, out of the excitement of being able to sell my k'nex.

But now I have some things clear: I will definitely be able to sell off specific pieces to specific people. I know some of you want the same pieces, so I shall opt for the highest bidder.

However, I still need to sort out my k'nex a bit more so I have a clearer idea of what pieces I have and how I am to go about selling it. This will take me a long time and probably won't be done by the end of this month, so expect it to be a while before I'm selling out pieces.

If you want to buy some pieces off me:
Please send me a private message specifying:
  • The piece(s)
  • How many of the piece(s)
  • Price offered (in £ please.)

Thanks for understanding. :)

Thanks a lot people for your input :)
First off, sad to see that you are selling your knex! Maybe you'll come back eventually~ (I started selling mine at some point, too)

Second off, Do you have any translucent balls?
Honestly, as much as I have loved my K'nex since I was around 5, I think it's about time I finally got rid of it. Although now I'm already thinking about all the things I could be making...xD Dammit. And no, I don't have any translucent balls sorry.
By the way, I agree that the most easy way of selling would probably to count and make bags of every part and sell them individually. I've seen professionals do that. And well, here you already have three people that want something specific, not the whole lot. Yeah sure, it takes time (and I can't see your agenda) but it will have the highest chance of selling I think.
Thanks a lot, that's really helpful actually. I'll speak  to my parents about doing that. :)
i would want gears, cyber knexs and balls
I'll see what I can do. However, I'm not likely to sell specific pieces to specific users, I'll probably just shove it all on Ebay. It's just working out how I want to sell it that's hard.
I only need about four things that I see you have. The top is what I need the most.
1. The orange tubing whatever you call it.
2. Cyber motor.
3. Balls.
4. White connectors. (I have some, but usually not enough)

Idk how you should sell it. Put a few lots on ebay, maybe?
Yeah I doubt I'll be selling specific lots to specific people, will most likely be selling it in lots on Ebay like you suggested. But thanks :) Ignore that.
Pieces that interest me, from priority highest to lowest:

1. 4 Maxima wheels (the big orange tires)
1. Any silver K'NEX ball halves (in pairs, so no 3 or 5)

1. Any Yellow 4-way connectors and golden yellow-sized rods (ANY Weird pieces or colours you have!)
2. your cyber K'nex stuff (controller + remote(?) + programming hub + "Drax" & "Woof" cyber key (if availble))
2. The Maxima 2 speed motor
3. Foam launcher + any missiles you have (it's not weird!)
3. 8 Maxima wheels (lower priority)

3. Large or medium tires (in sets of 4 or 2 for medium)

That's it


> Do you have a gray motor? (which is powered from mains with an adapter)
Will consider it all, thanks :) And nope I don't have one of them motors sadly

Right, so, I've come to the conclusion that I want to sell my k'nex. I haven't used it for about a year, it takes up too much space and realistically I'm probably not going to use it much if at all in the future. The problem is, I have so much and such a varied collection I don't know how to go about selling it. I know some of you people will be interested in specific parts and pieces (*cough* @GWorks ). Here are some general pictures about what I have. If you want more specific pictures and information feel free to ask.

1: All the little bits sorted. Most of them you can probably work out from the picture. Not all the compartments contain only one type of piece, for example one section has different types of hinges. Another section has pieces along the lines of the rod caps, hemispheres, small wheels etc.
2: Blue box filled completely with various wheels and tires.
3: A variety of motors, panels and them massive wheels I used in one of my ball machines.
4: Pieces relating to K'nex bricks and micro K'nex. Plus, micro K'nex roller coaster track
5: A few sorted micro K'nex rods. The rest are in the blue box in the picture above.
6: Box of big rods. A few broken grey rods in the top left compartment and a few broken connectors and rods and such in one of the compartments on the right. Some yellow rod sized grey rods in their own compartment, but the rest are with the rest of the yellow rods.
7: Gears. Giant yellow ones, medium red and yellow and grey ones, small grey and gold and blue and white ones, etc.
8: Massive box of connectors. Where all the connectors (apart from a few, such as the grey/purple 1-slot connectors which are in picture #1) go. Also contains some yellow versions of the 4-slot green connector.
9: Misc. pieces. Chain, some weird foam bullet launcher, a k'nex brick with LED's on it, K'nex men pieces, some tubing, bright green X shaped pieces, etc.
10: Some cyber k'nex I picked up: have no idea if it works or not.
11:Very heavy box crammed completely with instructions. Trust me, there's a metric butt ton of instructions in there. xD

So, yeah, there you go. How should I go about selling all this?!

It's the 'forever love k'nex' that isn't the case. Not particularly bothered about making a big difference tbh. But thanks anyway:)

That element idea looks amazing! What about just flipping the whole element the other way round? :-\
