G1 Transformer: LDD Optimus Prime
Introducing G1 Optimus Prime LDD! This is a major update to my V2 Optimus. I have started to build this in real bricks and will hopefully be finished in the next several months. I'm very happy with this model as it has many improvements over my last attempt. Vehicle mode is still pretty smooth with joints mostly hidden. He can still fit two minifigures and I have added a steering wheel and dashboard. Other details include headlights, tail lights, horns, smoke stacks, fuel tanks, and a large front bumper. Robot mode is much more articulate and sleeker looking. I tried to have the front wheels fold into the abdomen to make him a little more cartoon accurate. As always, Optimus transforms from truck to fearless Autobot leader without the addition or removal of any parts. I'd like to thank Chris Roach and Alex Wong for inspiring me with their awesome Primes. Please feel free to rate, comment and ask questions! Until next time...

Quoting Justin Li I swear, these will never get old and always get better. This has to be one of the best ones I've seen. I'm amazed you were able to do the transform feature in LDD!
Thanks! It was challenging going back and forth between modes in LDD to make sure the transformation engineering worked, but lucky I really enjoy figuring that stuff out! I'm so glad you liked it!

Quoting Grim Block Excelent! Such an amazing hand mechanism! Great build!
Thanks! Yeah, that hand/forearm transformation took me a while to figure out. It's somewhat similar to Alex Wong's. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
