OPTIMUS PRIME, HEARTS OF STEEL (LDD)
HEARTS OF STEEL OPTIMUS PRIME (LDD)
About this creation

Here is my first attempt at a totally virtual transformer. You guessed it its Optimus Prime. This time I chose Hearts of Steel Optimus Prime from the IDW comic mini series. This model fully Transforms from Steam Engine to Robot, you just have to add on the fists or the accessories. The rear of the loco transforms into a massive shield, the smoke stack a gun and I have added a lance like the Knight Morpher Commander figure. I have also added the LDD file if anyone wants to build him. If you build him there is a surprise in his chest, which opens. Wonder what that could be? Enjoy!

Steam Engine....







Transformation....














Robot Mode....

Did I comment on this before? This is a fantastic version of one of the most original OP incarnations ever (including a certain munky). I'm tempted to have a go at making a Trainformer, but I'm not terribly good at designing trains.

Boat, tank, animal, train?
Quoting Disco Chicken Hey Chris, I was thinking of making another transformer( my own character) and I don't want to make it transform into a car or a jet, because it's been done already. Do you have any suggestions on what kind of vehicle like mode I could give him?

based on a weird IDW comic where our favourite G1 guys are in the old wild west - pretty weird huh, other character include shockwave as a steam boat - star scream and the seekers as propeller planes and megatron as an infantry canon! Yikes!
Quoting Starscream Soundwave I'm not familiar with this version of Optimus, but I have to say he looks brilliant. Vehicle mode is also great, excellent build!

Its a design I did a few years ago before I learned a lot of tricks for making great legoformers maybe he deserves a V2 ... and some friends!
Quoting Epyon Custom It is awsome... I think you should make others from Hearts Of Steel like megatron bemblebee the insecticon battle train and shockwave

Thanks! Glad you like it but I use LDD mostly for throwing around ideas I rarely use it first then build something in the brick! So this HOS Prime was just a concept I was toying with. Usually I prefer the old fashioned way of building just me the radio my large inventory of bricks and my creativity.
Quoting Medic Physic Dude, this is awesome. I didn't realise so many people were aware of Hearts of Steel! How do you resist the urge to impulse-buy parts from bricklink every time you make an LDD TF? I've got bugs under my skin, man.

I know how he got all those unavailable pieces. he is using lego universe LDD like when you go to the page it has 3 choices at the home page and you can make any piece any color so that is how. but you cant buy things from this option. awesome model:)

you couldn't if you wanted to, many of the colours and elements in this design are not available from pick-a-brick.
Quoting just a guy trying to make his way what ever you do with the ldd pic dont try to buy it

You read my mind. Early this week I was looking at the toy story army men and thinking I should do some GI Joe vehicles. And the Cobra HISS was one of them. Maybe I'll do GI Joe MOCS when I get tired of Transformer MOCS.
Quoting Michael Crichton Have you ever considered doing the H.I.S.S. tank version of Optimus, from the G.I. Joe vs. Transformers comic series?

This is a really cool Prime concept. I never thought of him as a train. I think I'll have to build it just because. Thanks for posting the LDD with it!

You could modify it to match the pieces you have.
Quoting Jarno van der Werff Very nice! I can't build it sadly.

I am not a big fan of LDD either but I have CAD background from early in my career so its comes easy to me. I still like building in reality over virtually. But this way its less mess in my workshop. LOL! Not sure if I am going to build this in reality or not yet!
Quoting Louis K. This is awesome! I can't deal with LDD at all, it's a mystery to me how you were able to create such a great transformer on the computer. Are you going to build it in real life?
