Since I haven't built and posted anything in quite a while, I figured I would indulge myself. Not that I don't have any ideas but, have had other things occupying my time. I don't have wheels to make proper Autobots. I don't have enough red or blue building pieces for Optimus. That sort of puts me in a bit of a bind. So, I figured I would improvise and create my own version, or at least I think it doesn't exist. Anyway, I prefer old school Transformers so, I fashioned him after the G-1 version with the articulation of the Anniversary Edition. Borrowing a page out of Chris Roach's book, I incorporated a couple t-joints and modified his LDD Prime head, and threw it all together. The way the hip joints are made allows for good posing while keeping his balance, which I am thankful for. Sadly I noticed that when I zoom in to try to get better details, the photos get blurry. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy looking through them.
Poses with weapon:
And of course, I had to include Megatron in gun mode:
Side by side weapons:
I did make the chest with the ability to open but, wasn't able to configure anything to be useful as a matrix:
And of course, it wouldn't be Optimus without his trailer/combat deck and Roller:
Thanks for looking. :) As for what's next? It's a toss up between either going back to try the Grimlock classic deluxe version, which I never made too much progress on, or another targetmaster like my Battle Wagon but, it'll be an aircraft carrier. We'll see...
