Back in 2008 i built an optimus prime out of bionicle and it was featured in the cool creations section of the Jan-Feb 2008 edition of LEGO magazine. since then i have honed my building skills and updated the final transformer that i had built out of bionicle. Optimus is the last transformer i built after seeing the first transformers film. Now i have given him the same SYSTEM LEGO upgrade i gave bumble bee(he was not posted on mocpages)and Blackout. well i hope you like the improved version of Optimus. PLEASE RATE AND COMMENT!
About this creation
here is another shot of the front.
a close up of his chest.
a close up of his head.
here is a shot of his legs. i think his legs are a bit too blocky, but optimus prime V3 should fix that!
This is AMAZING! Definitely one of the best large scale movie versions of optimus yet. Seeing this has inspired me to build my own minifig scale optimus (almost done, pics up soon). great work! any tips for the head and hands?
