Welcome to my MOCpage! Since I was a kid, I've loved Legos and Transformers. When I couldn't get a Transformer that I wanted, I would build it out of Legos. Those creations were rudimentary and often required removing pieces and adding them back on to complete the transformation (as I didn't have many hinge/joint pieces).
As I grew, so did my collection of Legos and my love for Transformers. Eventually, I grew up and no longer played with either (although I never lost the love for both). Then, I had children :) It quickly became evident that they were the perfect excuse to build Legos again. When they were old enough, I went to visit my father and grabbed my childhood collection. We also began getting some of the newer sets. Now (thanks to a little of my influence) they are into both Legos and Transformers too. When I told them about the Legoformers I used to build as a kid, they wanted me to build some new ones. Inspired by some excellent builders on this site, I began construction of a G1 Optimus Prime.
Upon completion of that project, I decided he needed a yin to his yang. So, I am currently building a G1 Megatron. He is quite the challenge, but so far, I am pleased with his progress (although I've wanted to give up on several occasions). Now that I've announced it, I hope I will be able to complete him (as I don't see many G1 transforming Megatrons on this site). I don't think he will be on par with Chris Roach and Alex Wong's awesome versions, but I hope he turns out okay.
Update 5/26/15: I've just added G1 Megatron as a "Work in Progress". Hopefully the final product will be somewhat better.
Update 6/24/15: I've just added G1 Soundwave. He is my entry for the 2015 Soundwave/Shockwave Contest. I still need to build some cassette minions and post pics of the transformation process.
Update 6/25/15: I've just added Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, and Ravage to my G1 Soundwave. I hope to add Rumble and Frenzy soon.
Update 7/2/15: I've just added Rumble and Frenzy to my G1 Soundwave as well as pics of the transformation process.
Update 7/17/15: I've just added G1 Bumblebee.
Update 7/21/15: G1 Bumblebee (V2) coming soon! I am working on updating my G1 Bumblebee to more closely resemble a VW Beetle and hopefully make Bee's robot mode a little better too. Stay tuned!
Update 8/6/15: I've just added G1 Bumblebee (V2)!
Update 12/16/15: G1 Optimus Prime (V2) coming soon! Its been a while since I've posted any new MOCs, but I am nearly done with an update to my G1 Optimus Prime. I hope to have him posted sometime around Christmas. He will be much more posable as I have completely redesigned his arms, hands and legs! Stay tuned!
Update 12/29/15: I've just added G1 Optimus Prime (V2)!
Update 2/20/16: I've just added a flatbed trailer and tractor for my G1 Optimus Prime (V2)!

Update 6/17/16: I've just added my version of Pieceout (originally created by Stephen Pakbaz)!
Update 8/2/16: I've just added LDD KITT Transformer! I always loved Knight Rider as a kid so I thought it would be fun to do a Transformer based on KITT. I hope you enjoy!
Update 8/19/16: I've just added LDD Sunstreaker (V1)!
Update 8/26/16: I've just added LDD Sunstreaker (V2)!

Wow! G1 Optimus Prime (V2) won a Brick Award for "Most Artistic". I feel very honored! Thank you so much for your support of this MOC!
Well, enjoy my Transformers! Please feel free to rate, comment, and ask questions! Happy building!
