    I was really irritated that the Guido Guidi's wonderful Hearts of Steel Prime didn't make it into the comics. So, I decided to bring some life to this model


    *NOTE: the minifig at his feet is scaled to be 6' tall*

    This model is made completly out of Lego. I know I will be asked so I will say it now; No, He does NOT Transform. I could not get the arms to fold up right & the legs to telescope.

    That's awesome. Are you also going to get the pieces to create a scale truck mode for him as well? Then you can have both forms.

    Oh how I wish LEGO had Transformers as one of their lisences.....
    Seriously, BTR was horrendous. Hasbro could learn a thing or two from LEGO.
    The sad fact is that LEGO is Hasbro's big competitor in the European toy market so it's most likely that we'll never see Hasbro allow LEGO to make Lego Transformers. Oh well..........................
    Oh yes, almost forgot.....
    That thing you made..... is AWESOME!!!!!
    I'm always happy to see people make tf's out of legos. It's such a great combination of my two favorite toy lines: Transformers & LEGO!
    Great work you've done there! Now can we see him in vehicle mode?????

    HOS Prime was I dont think ever in the comic, just concecpt art. I believe if he was in it, the concept was to be a train!

    Yeah, Hasbro would never let Lego use any of their big ticket licences like Transformers or Star Wa.......oh wait.

    It reminds me to one of the bots from Brave.^^
    Awesome legobot. I don't care if it can't transform. It's still awesome.

    Thats Freakin' Awesome. That sucks that he doesn't transform, but he still looks sweet. If only Hasbro would make him as a figure (maybe Titanium)

    Kickass. =) Really nice work.

    Well, George Lucas/Lucasarts holds the SW brand. Not Hasbro. Hasbro is equaly much of a liscensee as LEGO.

    Veeerrrryyyy nice!

    Fantastic use of bricks for the head! The exo-force style hands look slightly out of place...but then again, I'm not sure what other construction would have worked in their place.

    It's a shame you couldn't have built it transformable. The actual design seems to lend itself to lego quite well, although building it varible might detract a little from the overall look...

    Now I must know: how did you do the knees?

    Great work!

    You guys should check out the Lego Designer set #4508 "Titan XP". I just bought one last month on eBay for $28.00 (with shipping). It retailed for $50.00 when it was still in stores back in 2004. It has many useful parts (784 to be exact) that you could use to make a well sized Lego Transformer. Here's the link:
