    Plot summary: During the battle for Autobot city, Soundwave is blown into tiny bits by concentrated Autobot fire. Megatron is left to die and the Decepticons flee back home, where Starscream promnptly proclaims himself leader. On earth, Optimus Prime holds the Matrix out to Ultra Magnus, only to drop it. Hot Rod catches it and is changed. Optimus whispers that it is Primus' will and dies.

    Back on Cybertron, the 'cons watch in horror as Unicron appears out of deep space. They realise they cannot fight the approaching monster and run for it. The Autobots arrive and 'Rodimus' Prime, mistrusted and disliked by his mechs, launches himself onto the evil planets surface just as said dark god transforms. The Matrix's power is unleashed, but too close to Cybertron and half the planet is devastated by the resulting blast. Prime somehow survives and is found half-wrecked amid the ruins. The Autobots begin to try and salavge their planet...while Starscream decides to make the best of a bad lot and sets his thousand strong army on course for Earth...

    All of which is a fairly long winded way of getting into my latest lot of Lego transformers.

    They are each over a foot tall and are fully transformable save for integrated weapons and detachable drones.

    Starscream (with crown) and Skywarp (without):

    They are truly awesome, especially Starscream, Skywarp and Maelstrom, the faces, where did you get them/how did you do them.

    Nice. Your work just gets better and better.
    A minor suggestion, I'd make the cockpit parts of the seekers out of transparent blue parts, but I can understand those may be hard to come by.

    Any chance of instructions for any of these?

    I always enjoyed Legos as a kid, and have outgrown them some. I use pieces of them in various custom toys, and plan on using some of their ball & socket joints in some customs. Very nice work, and keep it up.

    Dirge121: Faces are done on Prodraw, a computer drawing program, printed out on paper and taped onto lego plates.

    optimus kimchee: Ah, who needs planning? I just dive in with a vague idea and see what happens.

    MegaMoonMan: Transparent parts of the right type are incredably hard to get hold of unfortunately. And I may get round to instructions at some point, but at the rate I work, I wounldn't hold your breath.

    Everyone else: Thanks for the comments! :thumbs2: 

    And, for your viewing pleasure, a swarm of you know what:

    I love the Ravage!!! Totally awesome take on him.

    Makes me want to try a few, but where I lack any legos, I am going to have to take a trip to the Burlington Mall up here in Mass where they have a Lego Store
