G1 Transformer Optimus Prime (mini figure scale / transformable)
I am glad to show you my Lego Generation 1 Transformer Optimus Prime - a truck at mini figure scale and it is fully transformable into robot mode.
About this creation


I have recently completed the final modification of this optimus that I built about a year ago. I have tried to include as much as details I could so to produce a vehicle with good realism. In vehicle mode, a big front bumper is installed at the front edge. The details are also include a pair of front head light, side rear mirror, and horn on the roof. I have also used some pieces of chrome tile to create the metal style of it.



A pair of large fuel tank are on the side. The back has got indicator and break lights. The metalic silver wheels are used instead of other colour, and dark blue instead of blue for the legs to make it looks better. However, the dark blue parts are relatively rare and cost me more money from building this.



There is a pair of standard chrome lego truck exhaust pipe.



Doors can be opened and there is a couple of standard seat and a steering wheel on the driver side. It fits 2 mini figures.



The turnable stuff is to be connected with the container trailer.



I have tried hard to manage the size of it into mini figure scale. The vehicle is roughly about 8 stud wide with some area a bit more than that. I believed it reflects the size of a real big truck which an Optimus Prime is.



2 mini figures are fitted in. The "Energon/the Matrix of Leadership" stuff is placed under the middle of the dash board.







Optimus and Jazz!!!



Start to transform!!!



The design of the forearm is one of the hardest part of the modification. I have spent a lot of time to solve the problem of the transformation.





















See the leg extendable system. There is a lock to hold the upper component after stretch to ensure it is not slide down due to the heavy weight of the body.









The big panel covering the robot head can be folded back in after the head turn out, so that to make the body shape looks slimmer and better.







Transformation completed!





The foot is one of my favourite part of this creation.



The back of the legs show the veins of the bottom of the vehicle.



See the vehicle head light glasses are placed underneath of the forearms.



Most of the body's articulation are using ball joints so to create better stability and it can do different pose.





Open up the chest and see the "Energon/the Matrix of Leadership" stuff inside.



Thank you for watching!

Yes! The best LEGO Optimus Prime I've seen, and I will say it will be THE BEST for a long while. Alex, you are a genius. I admire your talent and hope to be able to create something close to yours in terms of high levels of creativity. Thank you for the inspiration.

i really want to you to make instructions, but i really admire what Mr. Chris said about keeping it unique, i was about to make instructions for my own designs which are mini Warpath and mini Thundercracker (if you have time please could you check it out) so i am kind of tied, but i think you shouldn't put out designs. by the way That is one amazing Optimus Prime

Just when I thought I'd seen it all! The moment I saw this, some song started playing in my head that went a little like this: "You got the TOUCH! Dun dun, dah... YYOOOOUUUU got the POOOOOWWWWWER! Yeah!"
 I made it 
  October 6, 2012
Thanks for your advice, Chris. I agreed with your opinion after thinking in discretion. So at this moment I am not going make instruction for it. I have to say sorry to Ronald and hope he or anyone can understand that. Wish the photos I put can be good references for anyone who like to build something like this.
  October 6, 2012
don't make instructions Alex! This is a great piece of work that needs to remain unique. Speaking from experience, you don't want a bunch of clones of your stuff running around. I know all too well, i have many plagiarists who regurgitate my designs and don't give me credit for it and in most cases its a direct copy. Be careful who you give away your secrets to, just some friendly advice!
 I made it 
  October 6, 2012
Thanks Ronald. I had heaps of transformer toys when I was a kid and I chuck them all out rather than sold them, and now I really want to get them back. I completely understand what you mean. Sure, I will try to take more shots for the building instruction. I will just see how much I can do because there is a lot of small pieces brick used to make the details of this transformer. I would say each small pieces of brick have it's function on it. For example, I never use 3 plates instead of 1 brick. I am not familar with the Lego Digital Designer otherwise I would do it throught the system. Just give me some time, say few days later and you will see more photos on this site to show how to build this Optimus.

I just got a MOCpages account to say how fantastic your Transformers creations are! I'm so jealous! A couple years ago I bought about 50 vintage G1 Transformers on Ebay because I had sold them all (except Optimus) when I was young. And I also bought a bunch of Technic Lego! I don't want to beg for instructions but I will do it anyway. Will you ever make this world a better place by giving some instructions? Lots of times the builders of awesome creations don't want to make instructions because it takes a lot of time or some parts don't exist in the building software. But why not just take it apart 5-10 parts at a time and make a photo? Put some small stickers at the place they came from to make it even easier. If I ever make something worth while I'll try it out myself. And in this way you got it for yourself as well! A group of about 50 people all donate 10 euro for your efforts and to buy more Lego! Win win win situation! I'm new to the Lego MOC scene so please forgive me if this is already done. I've seen it 1 time so I've not invented it. Good idea people?? (your Jazz is also awesome!)

Absolutely wonderful. This is the most accurate representation of Optimus I've seen on this site. Especially the head. I would know what you were building even if I didn't have the rest of the body to tip me off. The transformation looks pretty seamless. The legs are too short on a lot of LEGO transformers, but it looks like you got it right on this one. Very well done.

Thanks Henchman. Yeah, I pretty like the result from using the dark blue instead of the blue colour on this, although some of the part do not do in dark blue. I always insist to use the most suitable part even though if it is rare and expensive, haha.

-Looks fantastic in both modes -Can't believe it fits minifigs -Can't believe you managed to keep it 8-wide, the best scale ever! :D -Also, good choice in colors, sometimes it sucks that you have to spend so much on rare pieces but the result is totally worth it.
