About this creation
Well, it looks like the lineup from my 100th LTC MOCaversary has been decided, with only two votes. Since so little people voted, I’ll bend the rules a bit. Instead of doing it in a way where one person chooses it, I’ll take all the choices from Evan and Callux. Evan actually chose four, so if I take those and the one Callux chose, then that leaves me with five requested creations. Also, Callux, if you want to choose a couple more, go ahead. As the lineup goes now, here’s what’s coming:

1 – Ultra Magnus
2 – Hound
3 – Bumblebee
4 – Mirage
5 – Grimlock

So, after that I’m thinking maybe Windblade or Death’s Head. Perhaps by the time I get down to that part, I’ll have already ordered my PAB for the year and gotten the Unnamed Alliance in the process. If anyone wants to request something that isn’t too difficult, I’ll always consider it. But anyway, now for the introduction to the MOC.

Optimus Prime Version Four has a lot of inspiration taken into it. First off, the whole idea for making ANOTHER Optimus Prime came after seeing the new KRE-O Battle Changers at SDCC. I’m actually impressed with KRE-O for finally figuring out the potential of their building system, and although the official photos look terrible, it’s due to mistransformation (as Hasbro ALWAYS does). The SDCC photos that people took while they were there actually look pretty promising. I then thought that I should build another Prime, and maybe another Megatron. That’ll have to wait for the next five creations, though. So, after the decision, I got to work. This is where a lot of inspiration comes in. The transformation is based on the G1 Toy, which is simple enough. The vehicle mode, however, has a whole bunch of parts that fit into it. The basic outline comes from Version Three, but a lot of transformation issues with that have been removed. Also, a bit of Beast Hunter Prime and Cybertron (Galaxy Force) Prime were thrown in the mix. His chest is a cross between that of V3 and my original G1 Prime, which I made back in 2011 when I first started on the pages and then later remade it for a contest. I didn’t win, but who cares. Optimus Prime retains the same system for the Matrix of Leadership that he had in V3, but this time I didn’t give him a trailer. He doesn’t really need one for this mode, as it’s got the BH thing going on. But, anyway, I hope you enjoy this MOC.

Okay, I’m going back to my usual way of doing things and starting with the vehicle mode.


The vehicle mode is rather solid, and it rolls pretty well too. I, eh , ‘borrowed’ the wheels from ABT Prime because I didn’t have enough parts. Don’t worry; I intend to put them back after the LDD file is done.


Another cool feature is that the guns store on the back of the vehicle. They can move around as well, which I’ll show you a bit of later.


As a final note, I didn’t miss out on any detail on the back. The feet become a proper bumper at the rear end of the vehicle.


As I said earlier, the two guns can be posed in different ways.

Here’s a video showing off the transformation. I put the touch, because Optimus Prime deserves that track.

Okay, now for the robot mode! What’s cool about this is the sheer lack of any kibble. Well, mostly


The only real kibble are the two parts that stick out of the other legs and the panels that fold down on the back of the shoulders.


For the head, I wanted to do something different. You see, many people use the same old method of making the two special ‘ears’ Optimus has, but I used a different way. Instead of simply putting two panels on either side to make that, I used L-pieces to create the effect. Funny thing; they could probably be reversed and you’d have a head for Animated Optimus Prime.


For a size comparison, here we have Warpath, the first LTC Transformer I ever built. Well, this isn’t EXACTLY it, it’s just the PAB remake.


Now, to finish off, I’ll show you guys the Matrix Cavity.


Just like the original, you open up the sides…


…and you fold down the middle.


You can then remove the Matrix of Leadership at will.


He can hold it in his hand (sort of) if you like.


Or, as the final photo of the IRL stuff, he can hold his guns that were stored away on the back in vehicle mode.

Here’s a picture of the LDD file. As I said earlier, there’s no LDD file. Really, there’s no need for one. In the end, all this MOC requires is itself. Speaking of which, CONTEST TIME! Who knows the MP-10 Evangelion-X-Transformers Convoy figure? Well, here’s a little contest. I challenge you to remake this MOC in the Evangelion colours and with a slightly different build. The winner will receive an LDD download (or at least as good as I can do it) of Bitillion. I haven’t made it yet, but if someone actually does this, I’ll make one. So, the rules are simple. It must not only be in the colours of the Eva Prime (go HERE for reference), but it must also have a decent amount of changes done to the actual build. For example, replacing the back parts or changing the leg structure. The changes must be inspired by Evangelion, with a reason explaining why they are. Whoever does this will receive the LDD download for Bitillion. Anyway, make sure to like this MOC and add me as a favourite builder if you’re a fan of Lego Transformers Conquest and you haven’t already. And as always, happy building.

Quoting Evan Botkin I never watched Beast Hunters/Prime so not really sure about that. The guns on the back seem similar to the Cybertron version.

Quoting Callux Toa of Fire Well, maybe Cosmos... or Maybe AoE Drift! Btw, sweet optimus! But I don't like the matrix...
Well, everyone's a critic. The Matrix is a little weak in the design, but it works. I suppose Cosmos will do, because I was talking about the next LTC Transformers I'd make, not the Transformers in general.

Quoting Evan Botkin Cool! Reminds me of OP from Transformers: Cybertron (vehicle mode, at least) would love to see an IRL colored version though.
Meh, I'd say it's closer to Prime from Beast Hunters when it comes to the vehicle mode. The Cybertron (Galaxy Force in japan) comes in to play with the robot mode.
