    Bought a Kreo Basic Optimus Prime recently.
    Didn't like the original model after following the instructions, so I decided to build my own using only the pieces in the box.

    Here's what I came up with, just wanted to share - think it looks more G1-ish.
    The pic on the right is my MP10 which I posted last year. Just for comparison.

    The model does not transform, but I think it looks a lot better now.

    This is the original design you get if you follow the instructions in the box. (for quick comparison)

    Had lots of fun figuring out how to build the Op I wanted. Too bad there wasn't enough pieces for a gun...

    you could turn that blue triangle brick out and it might look more like a hand.

    Looks great mate.

    Awesome. I think it's one of Kreo's weak points that they ever so slighty miss with the bot modes on some of the models. However, it's also a strength and attraction for me, tryng to use only the parts provided to make a "better" version more to my liking.
    Yiu've got a MUCH more G1 Prime there. I like it.
