You may have seen my preview of this, but here he is! It's Optimus Prime from Transformers: Armada version 2! This version is much better than v1, and includes all his "accessories" + the street action mini-con team! Enjoy!
About this creation
We begin with an Overhead view. From right to left, we have Optimus Prime, Mini-con Sparkplug, Jetfire & Mini-con Comettor (attached to Jetfire as his front landing gear), Mini-cons Highwire, Grindor and Sureshock, and last but not least Overload & Mini-con Rollout.
Side-view on Optimus' side.
Side-view from Overload's side.
View of all 6 Mini-con's in vehicle form. I think Rollout and Sureshock's vehicle forms turned out the best.
Mini-con's in robot mode. I like Grindor and Rollout's robot modes the best.
Street-Action team in their combined Perceptor mode. It's very articulated, and as such this is my favorite part of all the mini-con based stuff included in this "set".
Optimus and Overload linked together. All wheels touch ground, and Jetfire would be able to rest atop Overload just like the toys, but LDD makes actually doing this within the program frustrating, so I didn't show Jetfire sitting atop Overload.
Overload, Optimus and Jetfire all in Robot mode. I managed to fix Jetfire's shield holding issue! I'm also happy with how Overload's Robot mode turned out, despite it being his least important mode. And I forgot to do this, but Overload's shoulder flaps can flip up to reveal "Missiles" hidden under them. Overload's a brick still, but Optimus and Jetfire are both quite posable.
Back view of the robot modes, and showing off Optimus' trailer in base mode. This time around Sparkplug DOES fit inside the pods on each side! And that little gun at the top can fold out just like last time too.
Optimus Prime! SUPER MODE!!!!! V2. This time the head is more-accurate looking due to new parts being available, and the legs fit closer together this time.
Overload! Combine! Optimus Prime Mega-Weapon! That's right! Overload fits on with both his trailer legs and...
Jet Optimus Prime Mega-Weapon mode!!! Now all Super mode combination forms are bricks from the waist down, however Jetfire's legs CAN be pulled down to give him articulation, however just like on the actual toy this will reduce stability.
I'm very proud of how these figures turned out, and I'm also happy I finished them within my self imposed deadline of the 26th. Hope you guys like this one!
