Transforming Lightning McQueen
Introducing Lightning McQueen...the Transformer! In honor of the recent release of Cars 3, I present to you a mash-up of Cars and Transformers! I took my kids to see Cars 3 and my daughter (3 years old) is now obsessed with Lightning McQueen. Since I pretty much exclusively build Legoformers, I thought of building a transforming Lightning McQueen. "Stickers" transforms from cute and loveable race car to mighty robot without the addition or removal of parts. As with my other vehicle Transformers, Lightning can fit one Minifigure in vehicle mode. I debated whether or not to use cartoon eyes vs. transparent blue round tiles. For some reason, the cartoon eyes didn't look right so I went with the tiles. Let me know what you think. As always, please feel free to rate, comment and ask questions! If there is enough interest, I will post pictures of the transformation process! Take care!

Quoting alex wong It's a lovely edition. In car mode, I especially like the eyes and eyebrows it represented, and the front air in-take made it like a smiling face. In robot mode, it's look great overall too. The only thing may be the lower leg/ankle looks a little bit too thin.
Thanks Alex! Yeah, I'm not completely happy with the lower legs as they are a bit thin. I had a hard time finding room for them in the back of the car. I finally settled on using the roof as the calves and feet. Any thoughts on a better solution? Thanks again!

Quoting Nils O. Wow, that's so cool. I love the idea! Are there plans to build it with real bricks? It would be interesting to know how sturdy it is. My SC Bumblebee and Barricade are quite fragile and not really child proof. The design however is great, I'd really like to build something similar for my little Cars fan ;-)) Great job! :-))
Thanks! I do plan on building it in real bricks. If it is anything like my other Legoformers, it is fragile during the transformation, but fairly sturdy once it is in each mode. I usually have to make a few modifications to the LDD counterpart to adjust for gravity and the occasionally weak connection. Regardless, it probably won't be suitable for small children.

Quoting Nick Barrett The tiles used as eyes look great, MUCH better than cartoon eyes which almost never look right. Fantastic model, I bet your daughter loves it!
Thanks Nick! I agree! The tiles look much better! My daughter does love it and wants me to build it in real bricks (which I'll be adding to my to do list :)
