Completely rebuilt... For the 6th time!
About this creation
After donkey's years, I'm back to posting another MOC! And this time, it isn't something that I made a gajillion years ago!

This all started after Chris Roach's Epic Legoformer Contest. I was extremely inclined to enter a MOC - I even cannibalized my other legoformers to make one. How'd it go? It... completely and utterly failed. So all I was left with was a pile of legoformer carcasses, and nothing to show for it.

...Until a few weeks ago, when I started reassembling my legoformers. Originally I wanted to rebuild them as they were before, but then I decided I am going to upgrade them. The first of them is this beast.




Hopefully I'll stop procrastinating long enough to make the others too.




Anyway, the truck mode! It's a little longer and squatter than Optimus 5.0. Oh, and he has larger wheels too. I think it makes him look more like a truck.








The trailer. Not much about it has changed since I built it an aforementioned gajillion years ago.









Transformation!







Unlike 5.0, the front wheels now tuck into his body. I haven't done this since 3.0.














Another difference with 5.0: His (fully articulated) hands don't partsform. This time, this is an all new feature for me.














Robot mode!




Optimus 6.0 is quite a ways from his 5.0 self. For one, he's a lot bulkier. This is to facilitate the heavy ratchet hips, so they look more proportionate relative to him.

Otherwise he'll just look weird.




From this back shot you can see the front wheels tucked up into his body. I wanted to perfect the technique from old 3.0, and it seems I've pulled it off here.




Really like this angle somehow.






Not a whole lot of accessories - just his trusty axe and ion blaster.




He also has more points of articulation than 5.0.





Combat deck transformation!







Again, not much difference from when it was first built. The only significant differences are redesigned side supports, weapon storage, and drone tower thing. The wheels are also larger to go with prime's new set.




Chris Roach's Roller design in (admittedly fake) light grey.


And now for some DYNAMIC POSES!









Thanks for stopping by!

Quoting Alpha Dawg Hey, this is an excellent MOC! I'm really loving the arm designs. I also was wondering if I may please use that design on my Optimus MOC. I promise to give you full credit if you accept.
Thanks and sure!

Quoting andros tempest With the minor issue of the gap in the side of the truck cab in vehicle mode, this is excelent. I've seen A LOT of G1 optimus figures, and this is definitely in the top 5. The weapons and trailer are amazing. And you even squeezed in Roller!
Hmm, didn't actually notice the gap until you mentioned it... It's rather miniscule in reality. Really glad to hear that this guy made your top 5, thanks a lot man!

Quoting Declan Muller I'd say this was more IDW style than G1, which is great because nobody does IDW. :)
Is it really? Wasn't my original intention, but I take it!

Quoting Starscream Soundwave Superb, both modes look great. I am especially impressed with vehicle mode though, the truck is fantastic!
Thanks! I myself admit that the truck mode is somewhat better because the bot mode is... Kinda fat hahaha!
