OPTIMUS PRIME G1 DELUXE MODEL
"Freedom is the right of all sentient beings" ... Optimus Prime
About this creation
Essentially this is my Optimus Prime version 6, here is the final incarnation (I think) of this model. I present to you after 2+ years of tweaking, G1 Optimus Prime Deluxe! I was mostly happy with V5 click here
but I had to make the following changes to be completely satisfied; I rebuilt the entire upper body, incorporated my new Deluxe Prime head design click here , changed the chest area where the Matrix is stored, added rachet joints to shoulders, remodelled the feet, slightly changed the details on the thighs and legs, made the front bumper assembly fold and tuck on the back in robot mode and modified the trailer slightly. (That was lot more than I thought)

Do you know if I could buy ball and socket joints at a lego store or if not where else ? I plan to buy some more to make more lego transformers.(The last time I went to the store they only had basic part that I already had) Also just out of question, wich optimus creation is your buddy icon from?

Quoting M G I dont remember much about g1 prime but this is sweet. Do you know the optimus prime from around 2006? His trailer became like a giant cannon on his back. Maybe give that a go. just a thought. Cool moc

Quoting Mike C You have talent beyond my wildest dreams. I looked at your page and wanted to post comments everywhere, but I figured if you gonna leave one it best be on one of the greatest autobot of all time Prime. What can say other than excellent excellent work on all of them. Look forward to what other builds are coming.

the crotch is a 2 brick wide by 2 brick tall speciallty brick with ratchet on one side and just pin hole on the other. It was found mostly in aquanaut and alpha team sets in the 90s to hook claws onto. Which reminds me I need to find some on ebay.
Quoting Brent W Very impressive, I love the articulation with the ratchet joints. I still cannot figure out what type of brick you used to connect the leg ratchet joint to the crotch piece. My brain hurts...please tell me, lol.

Chris, this is the best G1 Optimus Prime ever! Not only did you build Optimus Prime but you also built his trailer AND you made them both be able to transform and be able to look like they do with the actual toys, too. I got to agree with the guy that said that I couldn't tell this apart from the actual G1 Optimus Prime toy. As for what W. Mark said, should I consider siccing Grimlock after him for his comments?

Quoting Chris Roach oh yeah the insignia stickers! the only non purist thing I add to my Lego Transformers Creations! I'll add some of my other creations without insignia instead!
You could use blue Bionicle Krana masks as insignia instead... none of them look exactly like the real thing, but some come pretty close: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=42042Ja

Quoting haran banjo Fantastic! But the shoulder joint, although much improved, still does not seem strong enough
much tighter than V5! Lego will just have to come up with a compact ratchet joint for these such applications.
