    My first encounter of this character was from the Issue #79 of Marvel Transformers Comics (from the 80s. ). As a plot device to put all closure to everything (aka Happy Ending), he showed up, did a few magical stuff .. reformatting Transformers home planet Cybertron and resurrected the good guys Autobots to bring the bad guys into submissions.



    Trivia

    [​IMG]


    • I loved the idea of TLA being literally a robot in disguise rather than entombed somewhere in Cybertron waiting to be discovered, hence his Autobot Logo/Insignia mode. He can blend in into Cybertron metallic surface/walls/ceilings without anyone noticing.
    • Since I built the head last, It's an absolute co-incidence that the head can be tucked into the Insignia mode without modifying other already built component like the robot legs.
    • Initially I had some problems keeping this mode upright due to small footprint, until I refine his jet mode wingtips which can be folded/angled to help stabilize the Insignia modes. This, too.. is a co-incidence.
    • As a "sacred" creation of Primus (assumedly to be peace loving), I decided NOT to arm TLA with any form of weaponry in all his modes. He's literally a wizard in Transformers lore , so weapons are redundant... I guess.
    • TLA is an ancient Cybertronian so I keep this in mind during my refinement of this MOC... by adding gold toned LEGO parts on his chest and legs too, and a more slender legs compared to other blockier/ chunkier ones in modern Transformers .

    ^ This one was inspired from one Iron man photo I seen few years back. Took me almost 10 minutes to set him up in this pose.

    ^ TLA looks similar to Infernus, another LEGO TF I made almost 2 years ago from one LEGO set. (building instructions below)

    Such an incredibly creative figure you've made, and the insignia mode is perfect!

    I-I once built a multicolored Kickback out of Legos. It was alright.
