Long before Megan Fox, huge GM sponsorship and ‘Bayformers’ the Transformers franchise was a slightly ropey-looking cartoon, which now counts The Lego Car Blog Elves amongst its most avid fans.
Since we bought the Elves a video of the ’80s animation a new policy had to be introduced; ‘No Transformers Until You Bring Back A Creation’. Today though they’re all happily crowded round the old TV we’ve put in their cage-room, because they’ve discovered a gem of a model, and one that fits their latest obsession.
Alex Jones aka Orion Pax is back, with a brilliant imagining of the original G1 Optimus Prime in Lego form. The flat-fronted truck comes complete with a superb silver trailer and transforms Optimus into his robot form beautifully. Check out the pictures and a video of the transformation at Alex’s photostream on Flickr, or via his ace website orionpax.de.
