    Wow! It's unbelievable at how much detail is in that little guy and HE TRANSFORMS!!!!! Congrats on making your idea reality! Hasbro needs people like you designing their toys! I would love one of these too, are you planning on making more to sell? Also it would be really cool to see a Mean Machine next to him!

    Great work, and cool production art take on Optimus.

    I'm really curious though - where did you source those balljoints/sockets from? They look very generic, like they were manufactured to be multi-use.

    Thanks!

    Thanks :)  I'd like to have this replicated, if possible. I'll have to see if the re-caster will accept such a complex kit. So far, there are now 84 parts in Truck Machine, and the trailer's not done yet. Man.. that's a lot of toy for something so tiny!

    Would you believe... ball-headed push pins? But the sockets are completely made from scratch. :)

    Wow, those must be big push pins. :)  How did you make the sockets to the push-pin ball joints fit snugly enough? I know there's superglue or Future Acrylic routes to tightening existing joints, but making new ones has never worked out for me. What's the secret? :)

    You must cast your parts before you paint this.

    The push pins usually come in 3mm, 4mm, & 6mm diameters. Pretty convenient for small projects. :)  The secret process is... pretty much a matching hole of the same diameter & depth drilled into a chunk of material and a slot for the ball joint post to move in, then the Future/superglue method. (Don't tell anybody.) :D 

    But it needs a trailer! :)  Yes, I would like that to happen very much too.

    Sorry... too late. But don't worry, I have some improvements in mind for version 2. :)  If I'm gonna have this cloned, better to do it with an improved 2nd gen sculpt, right?

    Pics! I'll have better shots when everything's done.
