This is my version of the best Autobot, Optimus Prime! He is pretty cool, and has some playibility! I will definetly be making a few more versions of this guy!
About this creation

8. The hands, just clip them right on the stud. (Thanks to Chris Roach, again!)
9. Here he is, the big guy himself, G1 Optimus Prime!!!
A pose, he is really articulated do to all of the ball joints!

BEYOND THE BRICK:
I really enjoyed making the Autobot leader! I think he turned out pretty well. The most difficult part was getting his arms right, so you could'nt see the joints in truck mode. Oh and yet again I foregot to put the Autobot sticker on XD
That looks really good! My recommendation goes along with what M<0><0>D said. With whatever type of brick you use for the front windshield, possibly replacing the top 2*2 flat brick on the flip up panels to give the look of a door window in truck mode.
This is pretty cool! It takes a certain skill to be able to build Lego Transformers that actually change. I like the side panels that cover the joints idea. My only suggestion would be to make the windshield out of trans pieces rather than light blue.
