Chris Roach FOC Optimus Prime Design: Declan Muller Upgrade
Okay, before I go into the details about this MOC, just want to apologise for a lack of Devastator. He’s all photographed in LDD, coded and ready for posting. So, why is he not up? I want to wait for these MOCpages to be fixed before I post it, as people will more likely see Devastator if he’s up in the activity bar. Some inconsistencies will occur with this MOC and Devastator, as I coded his page before I did this one. In fact, Devastator’s ready and waiting for posting. Stay tuned for the admins to get of their Fall Of Cybertroning (getit?) backsides and fix the site. Until then, I’ll explain quickly what this MOC is. I took one look at Chris Roach’s youtube-subscriber-milestone thingy and said ‘that looks unfinished’. After telling Chris about my thoughts, all he could say was (and I quote) “As this is a giveaway model for my youtube fans - it was designed with general part availability and playability in mind - and not so much focused on exact details of the original source material”. Thing is, my comment had nothing to do with source material, although that highlighted another problem. I was simply referring to the lack of proper hands and bumper section, especially the latter. It seemed gappy and thrown-together. Usually Chris is a great MOCer, but this time he let it slip a bit. So, using the LDD file, I spent a couple of hours coming up with a better design. I’ll leave a full list of upgrades below, as well as a few photos of the parts that were changed. Until Devastator arrives, enjoy this little project that was quickly thought of, quickly completed and quickly posted.

The list of upgrades include:
  • Entirely replaced arms to fill the sides of the vehicle mode

  • A new head design to incorporate better hiding and an actual eye piece (which Chris insists on not using)

  • Upgraded shins to bring the model closer to the in-game model

  • New wheels to keep them on the back, like the in-game model

  • Better panel lining for the vehicle mode

  • Updated feet

  • Kneepads

  • Covers for the top of the head in vehicle mode, bringing the vehicle mode closer to the toy and in-game model

  • Extra exhaust ports, bringing the count up to an accurate three-per-side, also allowing them to fold back for extra accuracy

And before I get started, I just want to say that I in no way take credit for this design. This is merely an upgrade. To see the original, click HERE

I made a video of when I was transforming Prime into his robot mode. The transformation's back section and head are largely similar, but the rest has been massively overhauled to create a better look.

These last two photos highlight the parts that have been changed from the original MOC in green. The parts in their regular colours have been unchanged from Chris Roach’s design.


And that’s it! Make sure to like, comment and add me as a favourite builder! If you can’t wait for Devastator and want to beat me up in the comment section, feel free to do that as well. It won’t change anything, but I probably deserve it for making a slightly selfish decision. Until The Ice Cream Man makes his arrival, you can also check out the CUSTOM POSTER that will be featured as the main image, made by RAPTORTALON. The final image has been majorly overhauled, including the removal of the stars and the proper scale of Spectre, but still; send him some love. He’s been featured on TTV for his posters for crying out loud. Let him know I sent you. And as always, happy building! :)

Quoting DIAMOND MIRAGE Hello there.I just had to say this real quick,I know that all you fans of Chris have been asking why Chris is not doing as good with lego tfs that much,or mainly posting toy videos,or making easy creations,its because Chris not only has a Wife but also a Daughter,a job,and a life.You guys need to give Chris some slack (credit)
I understand that. I wasn't referring to all of his creations anyway; just this one. Also, I meant no disrespect. Furthermore, I was joking around in this, as I usually do. It's kinda like the argument between Optibotimus and that other guy. If we'd just sit down and talk, it'd all be sorted out. As for myself, despite having lost Chris' respect, I haven't changed my standpoint. I still like the creations he makes (and by that I mean rate them). I just don't comment. I just wish he hadn't banned me from his groups, because it was a bit extreme.

Quoting Chris Roach There is nothing more to be said. You've obviously missed the point.
Actually, I think you've missed the point. However, you're right about nothing needing to be said. Obviously, the best thing to do is put this all behind us and move on maturely. Fighting goes nowhere.

Quoting Chris Roach Well. I have put up with insults, name dropping, slanderous remarks in your descriptions and back handed comments from you for far too long on this site. Not sure what your issue is - or if you are generally that kind of individual. But what I really think is you've chosen to use me as a crutch for your own frustrations whether Lego related or not. Your comments that I see often on my own and other MOCs are that of an angry young man with a confidence problem. You don't know how to give a compliment without adding a backhanded twist and you have little respect for your fellow builders - it borders on distain. I think you need to step back and do some self examination of your words and actions. Hope you find the answers you need. chris
Also, you haven't seen most of my comments. Sure, some of them are constructive criticism, but if you can't take a bit then what's wrong? I was trying to come up with a better design. I personally feel offended. I'm not trying to ride off your success: I simply wanted too update the MOC. You're the best TF MOCer around here, and this one just seemed below your standards. Besides, the whole 'head thing' wasn't meant to be taken seriously. Dude, relax. I was only doing an experiment. You really have to pull out this huge anger train at me?

Um, I wasn't angry at all. I just thought it this one in particular could use some upgrades.
