Optimus Prime - IDW Comics Inspired Model
Freedom is the right of all sentient beings...
About this creation
Website: BWTMT Brickworks

It's my first larger scale former in quite a long time: IDW Comics inspired Optimus Prime. Thanks to Simon Kicks' recent IDW legoformers to remind me to get this late 2014 project completed. Go check out his MOCs!

This model stands about 13" tall in Robot mode and transforms from Big Rig to Autobot Leader and back without addition or removal of parts (except the rifle, of course)! You may have seen the head as a teaser on Flickr last year. This MOC was inspired by the Legends Class Optimus Prime seen in the last pic below but with a much more intricate transformation process. Enjoy!

See how this Optimus model transforms via this Youtube Vid !

two words: beast mode
Quoting Disco Chicken I want to make a new transformer soon, but I don't have any ideas for alt modes. I want to do something other than cars and jet planes, but nothing comes to my mind..... What do you think I should make it?

Quoting Clayton Marchetti WOW! This is amazing! His head is perfect. I love how you built the cab/chest. Those legs are quite impressive too. The truck mode is brilliant . Everything is so well fitted that it doesn't look like it transforms.

Thanks - yes the truck mode is a bit of departure from my usual OPs.
Quoting Paddy Bricksplitter That head is great! Nice use of those little wing parts. The transformed truck cab is really good, I think I like it even better than the robot mode.

I obviously enjoy building Optimuses or is that Optimi? As a kid it was the first former I built and as an adult as well.... and I've built so many different versions along the way.

Yes, A few posted just in the last few days! Let's rename the month!
Quoting Epsilon Eta Really nice! A lot of Optimus in a short time, maybe we should make this "Optimarch". Anyway, good job on this one. I mostly grade legoformers by transformation complexity but this one upgrades to 7 thanks to the look, especialy the head (7/7)

Quoting Starscream Soundwave I don't remember seeing the head, but it's definitely the highlight of the build for me. Really well done. Though of course the rest of the 'former is faultless, too!

thanks Scott, this was a fun one to design and build for the most part - but I had a few challenges in the transformation engineering dept to get him just the way I wanted.
Quoting Scott Bourgeois Nothing less than the best. Blown away - again - as usual by the design and look. Super awesome Prime!
