Autobots, Roll Out!

Lego Transformers Autobots

It’s been a while since we let the Elves watch a Transformers movie. This is partly because they’ve not found much in the way of Transformers-related builds, but mostly because after the abomination of ‘Transformers 4 – Age of Extinction’ we just couldn’t stomach any more Michael Bay directed nonsense.

Today though, we’ve relented, because one of their number returned with this cache of superb fully Transformable Autobots courtesy of Alex Jones aka Orion Pax.

Each creation is an ingenious work of art, and you can now build them for yourself, as Alex has released a new book containing step-by-step building instructions! There’s more to see via the link above, where you can also find a link to Amazon where Alex’s book is available to buy.

Semi Prime

Lego Chibi Optimus Prime Transformers

What if Optimus Prime was really, really cute. We’ll he’d look bit something like this, Sam C.‘s diddy ‘Chibi-Prime’. Sam’s tiny Transformer really transforms too, and he joins a few other Chibi-Formers at Sam’s photostream. Click the link above to take a peek.

Evil Twin

Lego Transformers Nemesis Prime

It’s been a while since one of our Elves returned with a Transformers-based creation. Previous bloggee MortalSwordsman helps to break the duck with his wonderful Nemesis Prime (the evil twin of Optimus apparently) transformable truck. Looking formidable in both truck and robot modes Mortal’s latest build employs some ingenious brick-wizardry to enable its slick transformation. See more on Flickr at the link above.

Robots in Disguise

Lego Optimus Prime Transformer

The Elves are beyond excited today. This incredible recreation of Transformers’ Optimus Prime is the work of TLCB regular, TLCB Master MOCer and Brothers Bricker Ralph Savelsberg (aka Mad Physicist). As is always the case with Ralph’s creations, the detailing in his latest build is extraordinary, but what’s scarcely believable is that this incredibly life-like truck can really transform. Because Ralph is a wizard.

Much witchcraft and magic later and Ralph’s Optimus Prime truck looks a little different, to the delight of our Elvish workforce. You can see more of Optimus in both his brilliant forms, plus a few images showing a little of how the amazing transformation takes place, at Ralph’s Flickr photostream. Click the link and join us in wonder.

Sunday Prime Time

Lego Optimus Prime

The Elves still haven’t got bored of Transformers, and thus they’re still fanatically excited whenever one of their number finds something like this. Today’s comes from alanyuppie on Flickr, and it’s Optimus Prime in ‘Powermaster’ configuration (Optimus is combined with another robot to increase his power and, we suspect, sell more toys).

Alanyuppie’s Lego version really transforms, and with such agility we can’t figure out how it’s done. See if you can work it out at the link above.

Robots in Disguise

Lego Optimus Prime Transformer

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.

Prime Time

Lego Optimus Prime TransformersThe Elves are still loving the original Transformers cartoon video they were bought in a moment of unusual generosity by The Lego Car Blog staff, so it’s no surprise they’re on the look out for Transformers-related MOCs. This one comes from Yang Nam on MOCpages, who recreates the original cartoon-spec Optimus Prime in truck-form as a Kenworth K100. See it at Yang’s MOCpage here.

But does it Transform?

Alex Wong's Optimus Prime

Alex Wong’s Optimus Prime

This, on the other hand, IS definitely a car. At least every so often. A nice 8-wide truck with enough room to fit two nice little minifigs.

You don’t believe it? Check out Alex Wong‘s MOCpages account, and you’ll be amazed.

Leader of the Autobots

Optimus Prime

Insert Megan Fox in the picture above for twice the awesome

Optimus Prime by BricksonwheelsMOC

Following their release into the www last week our Lego Car Blog Elves have started to return with their findings. Melvin, normally a slovenly fellow, was the first back (perhaps with the misguided notion that he’d get a pay rise), clutching this in his grubby little hands.

Michael ‘2 explosions’ Bay is going to win no awards for style, but BricksonwheelsMOC just might, with his superb and heavily chromed replica of Hasbro’s finest.
