LEGO Optimus Prime The Last Knight

Postby alanyap » Tue Jun 27, 2017 9:49 am

Well it was early last month when I was done wrapping up my previous LEGO triple changer project . Intending to build one more (triple changer)  ... then I saw the upcoming TLK Prime,  improved/remolded version of AOE Voyager Prime . Well, I was expecting more.. since its been 3 years anyway ( I remembered ROTF Prime was waaaay better than it's predecessor from earlier movie). I really hoped the kibbles could be better managed with few extra hinges. Anyway....

Image

so I decided to build my own , as usual (evil laugh here), with a few main challenge to overcome:

> minimize the back kibbles to ensure  he has a nice silhouette
> tuck in the wheels as much as possible in his legs
> decent articulation for cool poses 
> no stickers... just good ol' lego parts to "replicate" the flame motive on his truck body.

Image

My initial design for the shield was pretty elaborate but it failed the "wield test". The elbow joints can't take the load .. so I'm forced to simplify to what you see below, after reluctantly removing a dozen LEGO parts from my design:

Image

Image

A few notable photos of  the transformation:

Image
^ The multi hinged panels allow for various ways on how the legs can be formed. I end up with the above where most of the mass delegated to the ankles and feet (I can choose to fold some panels above to form  huge kneecaps but it won't look good).

Image

^ Those pesky smokestacks took me many days to perfect to allow them to be folded to the back of the bot mode. 

Image

... and they follow the roof panels as they are lifted. Windscreen rotated 180 degree revealing the head underneath.

Image

He's ready to rage.

Image

Only after transformation to bot mode... the chest cavity is formed, but still not big enough to conceal that godamn pointy Matrix. However.... this Prime is bestowed with Matrix of Readership....an ancient cybertronian artifacts /e-book-of-some-sort that will bore the kids to death with bedtime stories.

Warning: the following is NOT CANON:

Here's something up his sleeve, literally! The smokestacks in many other Primes doesn't serve any purpose besides looking cool. As for my Prime here... his 'stacks can be folded up to form multi-barrelled surface to anywhere cannons..! At the same time.. since it's no longer 80's... his shoulder pads will tuck in nicely on his back awaiting the next time round when it become fashionable again. Boy I really love LEGO Mixel balljoints making this possible!

Image

I haven't watched TF5 yet when I posted this... I assume the following scene will happen (except intervention by another Prime of coz)?

Very impressive. :O
I have anxiety, depression and aspergers syndrome so my behaviour can be erratic. I don't mean any offense to anyone. I'm just very picky about my Transformers collecting. You're all cool! :)

Likes: Movieverse ('Bayformers' are my fave Transformers), Marvel UK G1, most Marvel US G1, 1986 animated movie (more for style & soundtrack rather than Star Wars-rip off plot).
Dislikes: TFA, G1 cartoon, IDW G1, BW/BM, MP. The entire concept of Autobot Megatron.
