Since 1984, Generation 1 Optimus Prime has received the largest number of toys for any single Transformers character, a testament to the character's enduring popularity and status as a hero to many fans. And now here is the original 1984 toy, in Lego form.
About this creation

Here is the lego version of the original 1984 toy, made out of 667 bricks. Not including his blaster. The lego model shares the same articulation as the original, roughly similar design style as well as how blocky but simple the toy is. There is no trailer with this Optimus but still, This is based on the Vintage G1 reissue of the toy.

Comparing the height difference between my first model, Chris Roach inspired design and the 1984 toy. The 1984 model stands at roughly 31 bricks high.

In truck mode, it is the smallest among the others and the most simplistic in design.

To transform out of his truck into his robot mode, it is simple as the real toy.

First, fold down the legs and split them. Then flip out the feet.

Second, fold out the shoulders and arms outward,

Lastly, attach his hands to his arms and flip up his head.

He does come with his blaster but if you look closely, you can see that he is not holding by the actual pistol grip but at the magazine. Much like the real toy holds the blaster.

Since this model much like the toy does not come with a matrix and chamber, so I built one. This is in reference to the actual third party prodouct "BTS-03 Matrix of Leadership set (G1 Optimus Prime upgrade)" which gives Optimus a number of accessories including this.

The chamber sits nicely inside. Unfortunately the roof has to be detached for you to put the piece inside. I wanted to let the entire front portion of the cab to fold much like the real toy, but it does not work
The entire package.

The actual toy for reference.
