Welcome To My Custom Gallery

Construx was a snap together erector system manufactured by Fisher Price from 1983 to 1988. Mattel later obtained the rights to Construx and gave the system a short and uninspired rebirth in 1997. Most people remember K'nex, Legos, and even Capsella better, presumably because they were backed by stronger commercials and their kits had more creative designs, but over the long run, I've discovered that Construx had, by far, the most potential of any erector system ever manufactured (as this site will hopefully prove!).

I've been a fan of Construx since I was four year old. To this day, I still pull out the old Construx sets to create custom playsets and vehicles for various action figure toy lines, from Star Wars and Star Trek to G.I. Joe and DC/Marvel Superheroes. Below are some of my experiments and custom designs, dating back to 2003.
