G1 Transformer Mirage Version 2 (mini figure scale / transformable)
Again, I just modified my old G1 Transformer Mirage and this version present more true to the original G1 cartoon and toy in both forms. I hope you will like it.
About this creation
In my opinion, there is more fun in building transformer with Lego nowadays compare with few years ago, just because there are more small pieces available. I really appreciate for that so I can modify and make my transformers in a more delicate and better look.



This figure carries missile launcher just like the G1 cartoon.





I still prefer the way the front wheels are placed at back of the robot shoulder, just like the design of the original toy. It just looks so great to me. I have seen one of the recent toy which hide the front wheels inside the torso, to make the whole robot more like a human body n perhaps more carton accurate. Of course due to the limitation of lego brick and its size, it is just too hard to follow that way to locate the wheels.



I have designed a few different options for the leg extension, but this is the option I finally happy with. The lower legs look blocky and do not feel like quite empty inside. You will see the mechanism when I do the transformation later on.



Most of the joints are in ball joints.





The pelvic can be pulled down a little bit so the waist joint can be bended to different angle as well as to do air crunch position.





LetíŽs start to transform it!



First of all, rotate the waist section for 180 degree.





The arms are pushed into the torso just like so.



This is the mechanism of how the chest, the head and the body are connected.









Finally do the legs and feets.









According to the real vehicle, the rear wheels are much bigger than the front wheels. It is a formula race car and the engine can generate lots of power to drive the rear wheels, therefore I choose to use the larger wheels for it.



The transformation is done!





May be I should put some stickers on it to make it more look like a race car.





The bottom of the vehicle still flat and provides aerodynamic effect.



See the little round plate in the middle to connect both feet together in vehicle form.



The front wheels can turn to different angles.





In vehicle mode, one of the features of this creation is the using of these 2 white elements to make the front panel area. It does have limitation on my design process while figure out the transformation mechanism. However, I still insisted to use these pieces because I think it just match Mirage perfectly.







The V2 Alliance.





Coming up next íV G1 Transformer Powerglide, it is a fully transformable figure into a jet fighter and mini figure compatible.



Thank you for watching! Until next time.

Again, thank you for all your positive comment! I glad that Lego made the new curved 1x2 tiles so the look is improved by using it.

Brilliant job Alex! That leg transformation is very clever and your parts usage is pure genius! A great improvement on your previous design (which was amazing in it's own right)! Both modes look flawless! I can't wait for Powerglide! He looks fantastic (and huge)!

Wow, that's a cool and clean look for a rather small Transformer - Excellent! I really like the combination of the slim "Creator" rims with the wider tires. Great job! :-))

Wow! You really outdid yourself on this one. In car mode it doesn't even look like it's a transformer. I love the robot mode too. Positively brilliant job!

Thanks Paulo! I did spend time to modify each part of this figure. Almost the whole of it is re-built.

Quoting Joshua C. That car mode is so clean and awesome. I'm surprised to see the wheels can even turn! The leg extension mechanism is also very clever, and the new round 1x1 on his head looks pretty cool. Both modes look great!
Thank you Joshua! I used the T-bar to do the front suspension so the front wheels can turn.
