    Part 1 - Guns

    Basically, the guns were made from old Bionicle shooter launcher things. Then I added the cross bar thing.

    Part 2 - Axe

    Optimus "mode"

    [​IMG]

    Mech Tech "mode"

    This was made from cardboard and construction paper

    The 2 modes were done by moving around the pieces of the axe thus revealing the cross or the 5mm rod connector thing

    Part 3 - Bunny Ears Prime

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Made with 2 rolls of toilet roll holder, some paper and a lot of tape. I call it Bunny Ears because to me, it looked like bunny ears when folded up and because I wanted to make a parody of Butterfly Prime.

    Part 4 - Oversized Trailer

    [​IMG]

    Okay, so this last one was made with 9 Nintendo DS boxes, 1 Battle Hooks Prime, 1 PS2 game case and assorted legos.

    Credits go to hthrun and his http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/tutorials-how-tos/465736-simple-mech-tech-adapters-rotf-leader-optimus-prime.html#post6657072 and in a way REDLINE and his http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/tutorials-how-tos/214537-how-remove-pins-rivets.html because without that, My Battle Hooks would have less physical battle damage and my regular pne would have more physical damage.

    That sir, is what I call the odd moment when you go to a thread expecting a poll, don't see one at the moment and later coming back to it with a poll.

    Yeah. It's connected by 1 Lego technic 5mm connector things that plugs into the trailer hitch and one Lego brick that goes into the hollow part just above the trailer hitch.

    That sir sums up what I was thinking, quite nicely. I really don't get why you trashed an Optimus figure for a set of wheels, was there a point to the trailer being oversized? Not trying to be an ass by any means , just legitimately curious.

    Actauly, I first got the Battle Hooks Prime in August just so that I could repair my first LDR OP. The trailer idea came about like 3 days ago.
