Done? Ok great...! I'm finally letting the cat out of the bag!!


 



I started this MOC with one very clear aim: Is to make the trailer as smooth as
possible from the sides with minimal studs. But as my build progresses, I found
myself having the need to fold these sides, hence applying hinges on them. This
means visible gaps to allow the swivelling to happen.  Those gaps are obscured
by blue stripes running across.









The cannons are concealed inside the trailer.  Due to them being folded out
from a tight compartment, the current configuration only allow them limited
range: rotation about 45 degrees upwards.






Side by side comparison with Reissue God Ginrai 






"Excuse me , earthlings. May I know the way to the Decepticons base? I've
got some ass-kicking to do. "




Transformation to Base Mode








As the flaps separate, you will notice that both of them are not exactly
symmetrical. One has a stud on its side, while the other has a hole (not
visible from the angle above) to help secure the connection in trailer mode.











The trailer "shell" will be split in half and become smooth platforms. They
actually are the legs for the super mode later on.









The trailer innards reveal complete arms. However, since we are in the
process of forming the base mode. These "arms" will be contorted to form
towers.









The "arms" are folded down and there are clips to secure them in place to
form stabilized cannon towers. You will notice that the light gray doors on
the back of the trailer are being folded, becoming the cannons. 









BASE MODE










If you're wondering that are the critters shown
above, its a compulsory addition by the "Ministry of Everything Cute and
Furry" in my house.








I tried to spread both platforms to the side (to mimic the original
Powermaster Prime base mode) but they doesn't look so good (and the length
of the base overran the area of my photography background). So I only spread
one of them as shown below


 


TRANSFORMATION TO SUPER MODE











The trailer top flap will be folded to become the feet.... sole and
backheel. The presence of the studs on the to flap actually helps in
stabilizing the super mode (if the surface-turned-sole  is tiled smoothly,
he might easily slip and fell)








Stand him up, and rotate the upper body to face the front, and now we form
the arms. 









As you can see, I am trying to "delegate" most of the trailer mass/bulk to
become the legs, so that the upper body can be lighter and hence, easier on
the poseability later on. This is very much different from the 
original
Powermaster Prime/Ginrai
 toy,
where the upper body is a huge chunk of hollowed plastic for the cab to
slide in.











SUPER MODE!











Now this is a pleasant suprise. The cab-chest still has adequate clearance
for the bumper and grill to be folded down, and finally ... allowed the
windshield to be opened .... revealing 
The
Matrix
,
arguably the most powerful thingamajig in the Transformers Universe!











The "shoot with both hands holding the rifle" below is the final photos I
snapped for this MOC. I intended to snap a few more...











Disaster happened! He toppled over! What's suprising is... no parts were
detached. I guess it's time for me to call it a day.








I've uploaded more than 100 photos in my blog entry
below, with a few extra write-ups . Do pay a visit hopefully my effort so far 
is not in vain! Thank You everyone!

Quoting Naresh Sabapathy Alan, I really want to ask you, being a fellow Malaysian, where do you get all your bricks from? I really want to know because I have multiple Lego designs I want to create. And I also want you to know you are the God of Lego ;)
Hi Naresh. I'm sure many would agree that bricklink.com is the best place to buy LEGO parts. You're exagerrating with the God part. many experts here would beg to differ.
Quoting andros tempest There are some amazing ideas here. I love that the armour mode arms are inside the trailer. I always thought the hasbro version cheated having them outside the trailer. Plus turning the smaller prime's legs into a backpack - genius!
Hiding the red component of the Super mode is sure one of the big challenges here. I nearly ran out of light bley parts! The original Powermaster toy served its purpose well (inspiring the younger me and other kids back then). I really hope an official Masterpiece version would be made in the near future soon.
Quoting Kyle Hardy Awesome! It's so toy accurate.
Well... you're kinda right.. and wrong as well. LOL.

Um, I'm totally speechless. The awesomeness has taken away some of my thought capacity. Fortunately, it also took away most of the memories of Miley Cirus. Thank you for such an awesome MOC, because it made me forget something @wefu!.
