Optimus Prime - Movie Style
Leader of the autobots ...
About this creation
You begged and begged and begged and as much as I don't like bayformers and after many times scrapping this project I present to you my first Movie Inspired Optimus Prime. I focused on character not detail to convey this MOC. Many people have done amazing work on non transforming versions this one is desinged for playability. The transformation is more complex than my usual legoformers and he is about an inch taller than my deluxe G1 Optimus Prime. The model also has my new head design which I created after the second movie but never used.

I am not 100% happy with the final product I think he is too thin in the mid section. Well there can always be a version 2. Other than that the transformation mechanisms and articulation make him pretty cool. You can also slap on his hook and sword for battle mode.

Pls comment rate and enjoy!

Robot Mode...
















Attack mode...














Happy building!

Wow - super cool. This guy does look pretty playable, although I can spot a couple areas that probably fall off a lot :) He's probably a lot quicker to transform than my creations. I love the attack mode pics. Cool stuff.

Kre-O is very dissapointing - Lego Rules! There are so many people that can do wonderful things with lego blocks you'd think they'd tap somebody instead of having non transforming transformers (don't get me started, LOL! ) Glad you like it! V2 coming soon!
Quoting Nils O. I can't believe that I haven't written a comment for this one, yet! You may not like the Bayformers, but you did a great job on this one. The shape and the transformation function is just awesome. Great job! :-)) By the way, I just saw the first images of the Kre-O Transformers presented for the European market at the Nuremberg Toy Fair. I can't believe that Hasbro has made such a poor attempt to combine Transformers and plastic bricks. I can understand that they use the Transformers brand to present their LEGO clone bricks, but the models don't even transform! They must know that there is a fan base capable of building Transformers with LEGO and their own designers are not!? Poor, poor Hasbro, they should have asked you how it's done right! :-))

Quoting Kyle Garton This amazing, the best lego Optimus prime I have ever seen! Also, I personally like the bayformers better than the early ones. The old ones were too blocky . (and megatron! He transforms into a gun in one form, A GUN for crying out loud! THAT SUCKS)No offence to you or transformers, just stating my opinion. Sorry for ranting:)

Well Chris, while I must admit that I agree with you about this particular design's flaws, all in all, I am quite blown away by how good this moc is, I know all too well how difficult it is to build a workable version of a 'Bayformer' Prime, but this is pretty cool!!! :) Looking forward to seeing version 2 in all his glory. =)

  December 17, 2011
U did not read the other comments, version 2 corrects the mid section problem quite nicely its staring at me right now. I'll post that in the new year! This can't be that bad as it is now my highest ranking Optimus MOC and my second highest legoformer of all time despite his trim waistline..... and I don't even like bayformers.
Quoting seth G now now this is amazing but why is the middle section so thin? i love the upper chest, lesgs, arms, but really? u are better than that. i think the truck mode is alittle chunky though but it works 4 ver.1. good job and plz plz plz plz check out my movie optimus!

Quoting andros tempest Ok, I'm not a fan of the Bay films, I think the designs are ugly, the humour puerile and the stories muddled and full of holes. That said it is a very distinctive aesthetic which lends itself well to lego (a lot of fans nicknamed the early designs "bionicles"). You've pulled off a pretty good combination here of keeping a robot mode that looks like the movie version and retains a workable and more importantly, recognisable alt mode. As with all your designs the transformation is genuine, something that other legoformer builders don't always pull off. the main weakness is the middle section, waist and stomach are a little plain by comparison to the rest of the design. (but you mentioned that is something you are addressing with the version 2).

you can see my collection on my 100th youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uahBL5u7nxo - and there is a MOC called my Lego Workshop already - my bricks are basically sorted this way - large bins for standard bricks in each colour - then small bins for each colour for: plates, round bricks, sloped bricks, tiles, then everything else I categorizes as specialty bricks for each colour. Wheels, train track , transluscents etc.. have their own small bins! Hope that helps!
Quoting Joe Troy This is absolutly amazing Chris. I never thought you would make a -bayformer- which I think is betterlooking than the movie. I have a Idea for a moc though. I've been wanting to sort my lego® bricks. It would really help me if you could inspire me with your lego®s( how they are sorted)!!! Thanks- Joe

Yes, they can do a lot with computer animation, almost too much. But, you did a really good job making this one work. Certainly G1 models are more 'realistic' with the component distribution between modes, not that I have seen any transformers walking down my street lately. So as Chris P mentioned, when you going to tackle a full size Unicron? Not that you probably don't already have enough on your plate.

A remarkable first attempt of the movie style inspired Optimus Prime! Both modes look nice, and the transformation is very good, which is not easy considering that the transformation in the movies is far from realistic. So well done sir, and looking forward to seeing version 2!

Man, I can totally see why you hate the Bayformers, they're too flashy in terms of shaping, the more iconic Transformers series had great, yet more straightforward designs, at least in my opinion. But despite this, you did a fairly nice job on this, though I prefer your more classic designs, this one I didn't think it was yours until I saw it in my Group.

Thanks, I think I got enough feedback tonight and some ideas to solve the lack of meat in the torso issue - so maybe it'll take me another two years to release a version 2 (hopefully not) but I think I can improve that defficiency without too much modification. After all my G1 Prime has had over 6 incarnations alone so far.
Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! Very nice, Chris! Like you, I'll always be a huge fan of the G1 characters, but this Optimus is just plain awesome!
