[MOC] Transformers Rodimus Prime

Recommended Posts

This LEGO project started immediately when POTP Rodimus official photos was revealed few months back. Instead of replicating POTP Roddy design (Hot Rod merging with his trailer to form super mode) ...  I have chosen to integrate all of his vehicle components in robot mode, not unlike 3rd Party version of him, DX9.

Initially he would "merely" transform from vehicle to robot mode but halfway through I decided to throw in a base mode after some tweaking. I relish on giving myself extra challenge there to kinda prolong the building process. 

Recently I got hold of a phone that could capture decent HD vids so from now on, instead of snapping photos of the transformation.. I will capture a video showing my nimble hands transforming my LEGO TFs.

BASE MODE

Being a fan of base mode TF... I love to arm the base mode of my LEGO creations with tons of weaponry for defensive and offensive purpose.

ROBOT MODE

Before I get started on my LEGO TF project, I usually set in mind a few challenges/aims for the final design of my creation. For this Roddy:

- Better proportions and neater kibbles not obstructing his waist , for a sharper looking silhouette
- Curvier and less blocky legs  derived from a blocky trailer.
- I wanted less red (and more black/gray) for the legs from the primarily red vehicle mode. This means turning the trailer panels inside out to form his legs.
- getting the vehicle cockpit to fit a lego minifigure
- Chest to store the matrix. A definite must!
- Forearm mounted cannons. Due to design limitations... his forearm cannons doesn't come from the vehicle intakes/exhausts. The arms are concealed inside the trailer together with the cannons. I am forced to distribute the intakes to become his shoulder mounted cannons instead.

Nice work!! Very impressed with how much of the original you've been able to include in this... angles, proportions, colours and of course the ability to transform.

Nicely done, sir! Nicely done.
