Updated Version of my Previous Optimus Prime design.
About this creation




A subtle retool of the last version. Some elements are changed to try and fix the odd proportions.



I'm thinking now the legs are far too long, it majes the truck oddly shaped. My thinking now is to either shorten both the thigh and shins by about two bricks or bulk out the upper torso to have the cab sit firther back.




Foot design is better, but if I'm changing the leg length, I may have to rethink the foot entirely.

Engineering these things is quite the challenge, but the satisfaction is well worth it in the end (although they never seem to be completely finished). I always find areas I want to improve upon. That's the beauty of Legos though. Anyway, I'm looking forward to the next version :)

Quoting Daniel Ringuette I like the improvements! I agree, the legs are still a bit too long, but I really like the new foot design. Hopefully that can still be incorporated if you shorten the legs. I also like how the front wheels tuck in. One of these day, I need to improve my OP as there are several things I am not completely happy with. Can't wait to see your next version!
I'm about 70% finished with version three, which features a new leg design that fixes the weird proportions. Still experimenting with foot designs as my idea now is to use the space between the legs to store a double jointed ankle. But building in a heel is tricky, unless I have a rear leg extention.
