So its been a yearly "tradition" for me to try and get a new creation up every year around the time frame of December 24th-26th, and I'm hoping this is the one I'll have finished by that time.
It's my Armada Optimus as a re-vamp - alongside his 2nd in command Jetfire! Jetfire here does turn into his shuttle form, robot mode (pictured) and Pants/Jet-pack for Super Mode Optimus. Now with the switch from regular plastic to LEGO, some gimmicks are inevitably lost, and in Jetfire's case he can't hold his shield - YET. I'm hoping I can fix that by the time this is finished. but his arms transformation hampers this function quite a bit.
Anyways hope I can finish this in time and hope ya'll like it!
About this creation
Progress update. Jet Optimus Combination functional and complete. Perceptor mini-cons transformable, able to form Perceptor. Sparkplug Mini-con, all wheels touch ground, transformable, still compatible with new model Optimus. Still want to see if I can make him smaller, but low priority. Overload/Rollout complete. Robot mode/"Trailer" mode/Mega-Weapon mode, all complete and functional.
Things left to do:
Re-tool old trailer/build new one. I may re-make the trailer and knock-out the base mode so the super mode formation could have articulation. Trailer would use parts forming in this case. This is the part I'm worried about - as its mainly what took so long to complete version 1 of Armada Optimus Prime.
Only one piece left to do! Hope I can reach my goal!
Please make at least part of your comments about the creation you're commenting on - and as for LTC - I'm still working on Soundwave - I've only managed to build this much of this creation due to quiet literally being trapped inside my house thanks to all the icy weather we got here in Texas over this past weekend. And yes I did work on Soundwave a bit during this time too - but I really just had Armada inspiration so most of the free time I had went into these guys.
