Optimus Prime Look alike?

Postby Shades_Corvid » Wed Mar 12, 2014 5:22 am

I have a friend who is interested in the game and LOVES transformers. To help get him in the game I was thinking of giving him the rule book and two frames inspired by (his fav char). One would be a truck and the other a more traditional frame. For the truck I am planning to use semi truck looking build option from the Mini Speeder set I just did a review on. ( ) I am thinking of putting a gun on the back of the truck and maybe figuring out a way to give it some pipes.

For the robot frame I want something that looks like Optimus but not sure what builds out there look like the big red guy? Thoughts? Ideas? Though perhaps what it really breaks down into is color choices and the head maybe?

I would suggest Orange Knight's knight frame. There's pdf instructions in wordman's ldraw/ instruction thread

Certainly looks like a good place to start, just not sure about the head...

fushigisaur if you toss a plate with horizontal clip (or is it vertical... the one that would hold a rod perpendicular to the stud) under that head i think it would fit right on the knight frame (as their heads look like 1x1 modified tile w/ clip and trans studs)

EDIT: looking at the instructions that is EXACTLY what they are
it appears that i am much better at making modular designs than making original creations... wait a minute...

Alright, so, here is my attempt at converting the Knight frame into Optimus Prime.

Image

It's not perfect by any means, but you can tweak it to your liking if you want.

EDIT: i should note that I didn't use any specific incarnation of the character as reference, but just went from memory making sure I covered the main aspects of his design.

Made some small edits, adjusted the colors on the chest and made some tweaks to the legs. The legs were really bothering me. I'm sure there is a better way to do the wheels...

EDIT: Looked up some actual pictures of optimus prime to compare, looks like his helmet is completely blue. My mistake, but unless I make more changes it's not a big enough deal to upload yet another file. Also, the nead for a brick-built head can be negated by using the Kre-O piece... if you want to do that.

I'm going to keep tweaking this model and see if I can improve it.

He's a bit small but I have an Optimus in . He even transforms, sorta. I'll post better pictures when I get the chance.

And I continue to work on this model.

Image

Fixed the colors on the head- It's all blue now, like it should be.

The chest is now COMPLETELY different, but I made it in a way the old arms and legs could still attache with not modifications.

Legs are different too- STILL not happy with them but I think they're better than before.

Also mover the exhaust pipes from the back to the upper arms. It's now pretty accurate to the G1 incarnation.

Here's a nice microscale Optimus from Flickr, but honestly, he looks a little small:


by , on Flickr

For truck mode, there a couple of offical LEGO sets that are exactly the right scale and have a somewhat correct cab shape. In all cases, you'd have to MOC up a trailer in the correct scale.

Except for 310005, these are discontinued, but I've linked the instructions, so you'd just have to do a palate swap.

Super neat! Very well done! I think Michael Bay could take a few lessons from you.

You are a great friend! :D
