    Hi Everyone,

    Haven't posted in a long time. Got inspired to build a small but super poseable lego version of our beloved autobot leader! I actually built the Alt mode first just for fun, then challenged myself to build the articulated robot mode. I'm pleased with the outcome.

    hope you guys enjoy and thanks for looking! :)

    Utilizing the knight helmet for Prime's head brings the franchise full circle - amazing work!
