    Hi there!

    Here's my work in progress on a custom G1 Optimus Prime. He's made of spare parts from a Deluxe Optimus Prime, some Megatron parts and a lot of Lego blocks.

    His chest opens, revealing some kind of Matrix Of Leadership (I say "some kind of", because i didn't have the right pieces to make a good one).

    There is still stuff to be done, like adding the logos and reworking the arms.

    What do you think so far?

    You know, this kind of looks like the Fall Of Cybertron version of G1 Prime.

    I've rebuilt the arms, as I didn't like the ape-looking long arms he had. I'll post the new pics tomorrow, as it's evening time where I am ;)

    Nice work, he looks very solid, great strategic use of parts to pull off the sculpt!

    The Kre-o's cannot transform, unless you heavily mod them. And sadly, this one doesn't either. But i'm pretty sure I could do some minor modding to enable him to transform, but I won't.

    I think it's great! (Did you do the Megatron as well???). The regular Kre-O figures don't Transform, so I can certainly understand why these might not. Wonderful job!

    Yeah, I did the Megatron too, as you can see here. Both look good together I think.

    Now i'd love to make more G1 icons, like Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime, Soundwave, Shockwave and maybe a Starscream. But i'm lacking the right lego bricks...
