    I was roaming around Toys R Us today and saw these.
    Struxx, I have never seen them before.
    First thing that came to mind was "Damn, could those ball joints be used in a Combiner or any other bash".
    I know most guys use Neo-shifters but these look stronger and it looks like you get more for your $$$.

    Anybody used these before ??? If so care to enlighten us on if they are any good.

    Those looks pretty heavy duty! Did you end up getting a box? Looks like that hard nylon-ish plastic, that would be ideal for the big boys folks are churning out lately! Good find!!:thumbs2:

    I saw those, the other day. Do they have flexing joints? they look rigid in the pic.

    No, I did'nt grab a box. I wanted to do a lil homework on them first.

    I'd assume they have flexing joints. Some of them come with motors to make them move.

    Checked the site! They are a bit pricey, but it looks like you get almost a lifetime's worth of big joints!! I may bite on these, if so I'll give a review!:thumbs2:

    Actually was looking at Struxx an hour ago at Toys R Us. Ended up picking up a box of Neo Shifters and Bionicle. (Had to kill someone for the top secret classified agent closely guarded information. :)  )

    I actually picked up box of these on clearance for $10 about a month ago.
    I've just been to busy to take some pics and post a little, what I think blurb.

    NP, have you tried these out yet? I found some on sale, but I didn't know if they were useable.

    Maybe, I'll try out my new webcam & do a video type review & break down of what you get in a set.
