I believe he posted his other creations before - Prime trailer, I don't know where to post this so I'll leave it to the moderators, if they wish to edit, move or (heaven forbid) delete it. Enjoy guys ... I know I did and still do..... Cheers!:thumb

    Yeah. I like how his creations only look complicated, but with a little work, could be achieved...if you have the right pieces.

    huh.... i'm not really sure on the estimation of number of pieces I have. but i think it should be about between 20,000 - 30,000.

    :rock  Cool. I have around 7,000 or so. Not...sorted. About 70% are in in a medium size tupper ware box. And the rest are built into stuff.

    Thats the thing, I have the pieces but lack the numbers, so far for the most part I work out the components sketch them and them build in a lego program, but that takes up a fair bit of time and I'm lacking that these days.

    I could probaly build one or two of his smaller bots of his with matching colors, but that's about it. I'd run out of joint bricks.

    Are Hasbro and Lego not seeing eye to eye? This is a gold mine waiting to happen for both companies if they would just get together on this.

    The BTR series proves they atleast thought about it

    I usually never made preparations before I start building.

    Just flip my trusty ol' TF generation deluxe book for visual guide, spot the right specimen that matches the color of majority lego parts i have, and build away.

    as the construction progresses, I tend up hit some setbacks that require me to deconstruct some major sections (due to insufficient parts to make the opposite section, as most design are symmetrical) and rethink of better ways/workaround to proceed.

    Sometimes due to lack of parts, I will snatch the required part off my current creation (swap them with other colors), and recycle it on my ongoing design.

    I don't ever bother with prep. I just build what omes to mind. I'm gonna try my hand at your design for the Neo Hot Rod thing.

    Yeah It doesnt really make all that much sense ,both are power houses in the toy industry and something like this would be crazy. The only think that could really make this hard to do is the pieces...well not the pieces themselves casue we've seem it possible but the amount you need to make and engineer out the transformation...I guess cost, I mean when i build i keep my figure to about 8 to 12 inches in height and that can take a couple hundred of peices to make and well up here a 200 pieces set goes for about 25ish i think or more....so then they make these pre-made big pieces which makes things no fun anymore...

    But i would love to see a line of real kickass Legoformers that would be awesome
