It’s been a while since TLCB Elves have been allowed to watch Transformers cartoons, but today one Elf is a hero amongst his peers for finding this, Joe Perez (aka MortalSwordsman)’s fiendishly clever recreation of 1984’s ‘Sideswipe’.
In car mode Sideswipe is the poster car for the 1970s; Lamborghini’s actually quite rubbish – but nevertheless iconic – Countach. Lambo’s be-winged V12 supercar is not an easy thing to create from Lego, and is even less so when it needs to reform as an alien robot.
Joe’s brain is a much bigger than the average one in TLCB Towers though, and as such his Sideswipe model transforms beautifully from Countach to robot, and looks superb in either mode. There’s more to see at his photostream on Flickr – click the link above to roll out.
