Merdecha the Freedom Fighter
Merdecha is a peace loving Transformer , a tribute by me to my country Malaysia's 54th National Day.
About this creation


Introduction


Today is my home country's Malaysia 54th Independence Day, and also Hari
Raya Aidilfitri for fellow Muslims too. This means nearly a week of holiday! So
I dedicated this MOC to the beautiful country where I was born , raised and live
in.


Merdecha is a portmanteau of the Malay word "Merdeka" (means independence) +
Mecha.


Origin


Merdecha is a Cybertronian Transformers without an affliation. He is neither
an Autobot nor a Decepticon. In the ongoing battle between both factions, he was
forced to escape the ravages in Cybertron by stowing away in an Autobot
spaceship. When it crashed on earth millions of years ago.. he bailed himself
out and end up buried deep inside a rainforest, known as "Bukit Lagong" in
present times. He was awakened by the turmoil of second World War in Malaya
(Malaysia before independence). Again he silently took arms and vow to defend
nearby villages from the intruders. The villagers kept their promises not to
expose Merdecha in fear of him being captured by  evil humans for
experimentation. He continues to live in hiding and occasionally came out of
hiding  with a new paintjob to blend in/ join in the celebration , donning
official colors of the Malaysian flag ,performing in airshow to show off his
exceptional flying skills.


Merdecha transforms into an interstellar jet plane code named "Freedom
Fighter". His wings configuration allows him to perform interplanetary travel or
intercontinental "hops" in merely an hour or so.


Project Trivia



  • This guy took me an incredible 2 day of work. One of my fastest output
    yet.

  • His main color scheme follows the national flag of Malaysia: Red, White, Blue
    and Yellow.

  • Due to nature of his transformation , he has wobbly legs below the
    knees, in which resulted in one hilarious candid scene by the end of the
    photoshoot.

And finally... the exceptional lengthy duration of this
session's photoshoot has taken it's toll on Merdecha.
