On the last day of 2012 (a day after my birthday), I posted what is currently the smallest lego transformable optimus prime. Well, sort of the smallest and sort of not. While some people have made smaller versions, they are barely recognisable. They don't even have legs! Mine had clear articulation between each of the joints. I did make a version 2 a while ago, and I was planning on posting it. However the laptop I was using failed. I'm still using the temporary replacement laptop today! [ :( ] Oh well, I suppose this computer will do fine for the photos I'm taking now...
About this creation
The upgrades from the previous version include:
Added arm plugs that allow the addition of the DIAclone armor. Yes, I also made the DIAclone upgrade, and it was lost with the computer fail...
Binocular pieces have been added as hands, and allow the addition of weapons.
The waist has been slightly altered, allowing for the grill and the legs to face forward.
Another connector on the back allows for the DIAclone armor as well.
I wish I had a blue clip for the head, but grey works fine for now.
The transformation is exactly the same as before. No changes here.
Maybe, if I make a version three, I'll make wheels for him.
The only issue I have is that they screwed up my order and replaced the red 1x1 flat tiles with black ones. Oh well, life's life.
The irony is that I was about to call customer support because my Jor El minifigure hadn't arrived, but he arrived that afternoon! In another box! The box is big enough to house all my 50-something minifigures. That's a waste of packaging, considering how they probably could've shipped it in one order...
COMING SOON! THE MAIN EVENT! GET READY FOR THE GLORIOUS SPECTRE, TOMMOROW!!!!!
