The Autobot Matrix of Leadership, from 1986
About this creation
The Autobot Matrix of Leadership is one of the coolest 'ancient talisman' style plot devices ever. I love the thing, and have done since the moment I saw it in Optimus Prime's chest in the 1986 Transformers Movie (which I watched in 2003).
So, as any sensible FOL would, I built the Matrix out of Lego.


So here it is, in all it's orange-and-grey glory

This close-up shows the relativly basic construction technique that I used to build this. It's not massivly complicated, but getting it all to sit right was a pain.

A shot of the rear, which is basically like the front, just with a few colour changes here and there. The rear of the Matrix was never shown in the film, but the toys make it out to be the same as the front, so I just put the equivalent of a 'This way towards you' sign on the back, with those dark grey wedges.

A general overview shot, straight on. This highlights the overall shape and accuracy of the model, I think

And an angle shot to finish

4th Wall (or 6th Surface):

This was a relatively quick build, once all the parts came. I hope you guys like it.

Sorry I've been absent for so long, I've had a hell of a few months. I'm working on something pretty cool, the WIP can be seen here:

I'll probably be more active now, but don't hold me to that.

Oh, and of course, since this is the Matrix:
You got the touch
You got the power....

And so on.

Sweet! It's quite awesome. Like I said on flickr, you should make a really large Optimus and put this in him. Would look great but it's probably a bit of an unrealistic goal. :)

Quoting The Journeyman Ranger That's just awesome! As a HUGE Transformers fan there's no way I couldn't like this :D (I can only imagine how much fun it is to open this baby up and quote Optimus Prime. I can't describe how awesome that sounds lol )
I'm glad you like it. It is indeed so much fun to quote Optimus, and Rodimus, while holding or opening this thing. So much fun
