Never owned one but I've certainly heard of you, old friend. Totally coveted you and your less-blingy looking buddies.

Fuck... I totally forgot about these guys!

I used to have a few of them and some of those weird ones with tank treads for arms. Fun times were had with them, man.

Yes. Yes I do. I vaguely remember the PC game, too, but nothing about it other than it existed.

I still have one of the aliens around here... The one's that had purple and blue heads made from regular K-nex pieces.
Hard to find pictures of K-nex sets... I'd try to find a pic of them otherwise.

I actually squealed when I saw this thread, I have the Hyper Space Training Tower and all 9 of the dudes who came with it, the gold commander, the silver lieutenants, and the green grunts. I also have 2 of the K'nexcavators (construction orange) from the PC game, and a bright orange one...I can't remember which set he came from

Major Miner is probably my favorite, he towers over the rest of the group like Optimus Prime

Oh man I used to have a bunch of these guys. Even got the Training Tower like >>4407516 but I could have sworn the ones I got were blue, not green. I only ever had one green guy and since that was my favorite color, he was my bro. >>4407522 I used to make armor like that and eventually I decided to pretend they were Gundams/mobile suits for my Lego figures. Then I gave all of my K'nex away and I regret not keeping at least the green guy. Maybe I'll search around and buy one if they are in good shape with a decent price.

they even had bad guys! I have the Cosmic Invaders, the Mine Raiders, and the Winged Warriors. I was only able to get one set of each so I had to choose whether to have 2 little guys or one big guy, I liked the giant winged warrior better than the 2 small ones and the huge leader of the mine raiders (same height as Major Miner) so I keep them that way but I kept the trio of space invaders since their giant form was some Cronenbergian mess with 2 torsos linked by a shared arm stump...

I remember that, I had one of the first runs of the Training Tower where the guys were all green, but later releases had the grunts in blue. I guess they figured kids would like blue more. But still, how AWESOME are these guys?! They have articulation that can rival a Marvel Legends figure and predate Bionicle by several years. The minifigures they put out today for their kits pale in comparison.

They were actually a competitor to the Technic dudes that Lego was making at the time for the Competition line(or at least that's what I picked up as a kid).
What was the game about though, I only remember mines.

I actually had a mine raider grunt, I found him in my box after the first picture, I also built one of the smaller winged warriors to show what those guys look like

the game was just a glorified ad for the K'nexite refinery set, it had a digital comic and a biopic about the inventors of the k'nex building system (guy who owned a plastic injection plant that made things like those little pizza box tables was messing around with a straw at a friend's wedding and realized he could make a toy out of that.) The plot of the game itself is that the mine raiders dismantled the refinery and stole the pieces, you play as "the kid," one of the k'nexcavators, who walks around the levels shooting enemies and collecting pieces (you can only carry a certain weight so you have to take what you gather to transporters to lighten the load) culminating in a final showdown against Leach, the leader of the mine raiders. It was for windows 98 as I recall.

zomg i had so many of these guys. k'nex were cheaper than lego and my parents were happy to get me them for birthday/christmas.

had 3 blue, 6 green, the miners, gold guy, two silver, 3 red, and a weird neon green one that came with some vehicle set.

my brother and I had a whole world where they were the heroes and our other action figures made cameos as villains. that continued all the way up until i was entering middle school. good times.

Knex men make the best minion armies for Figurarts to fight in pose displays.
