My first Movie transformer. heavily inspired by ixrolloutix and Seth Higgins movie Optimus Prime models.
About this creation
I finally got around to making a youtube channel to show my Lego builds.
His design is very heavily influenced by ixrolloutix and Seth Higgins movie optimus design, though I have made a lot of changes to both robot and vehicle mode.
the most obvious changes I've made to his truck mode compared to ix and seth's design is to the smoke stacks, which I have made much larger and moved to the bottom of the cab. his cab is also a stud longer, and he has mudflaps over his rear wheels.
there are a few exposed robot parts on the back, but it definitely doesn't distract from his overall appearance.
pretty tight fit
and compared to my other MiniFormers
to transform start by lifting his arms/rear end
now rotate the 1x1 that his smoke stacks are connected to
spin the smoke stacks around
and unpeg his arms
now slide the 1x1 clips back
and rotate up
lift head and adjust smoke stacks
now pull down the legs
and just like ix's design you need to slide them apart at the knee. though I have changed the hip design to allow for better articulation
