LEGO Transformers G1 Optimus Prime Replica by Orion Pax

1

TRANSFORMERS G1 OPTIMUS PRIME REPLICA

Orion Pax has done it again. He is known for building incredible replicas of many old school things such as the Ghostbusters Headquarters, Masters of the Universe, and Knight Rider’s K.I.T.T. Today, Alex has posted a replica of G1 Optimus Prime. It was built in 2012 but he hasn’t presented it for various reasons, until now. It is fully transformable and uses all LEGO pieces except for the Kre-O head but, in my opinion, it’s ok. It looks amazing in every aspect and looks exactly like the Takara Tomy version. It even has Roller in the trailer! See below for a few more images of Optimus Prime and a video of the transformation process but head over to Alex’s site for a lot more images as well as other Transformers characters he has replicated.

3

Team BTTF continues to add more impressive Back to the Future sets to LEGO CUUSOO. Today, they have submitted the Locomotive 131 from BTTF 3 to their wide assortment of sets they currently have going at this moment.

The project, as usual, was created by Sakuretu and it features the Locomotive 131 which was used to push the DeLorean to make it reach 88 mph and to make it go back to the present time. Along with the locomotive, the project also includes the tinder or the car that holds the fuel for the train and in this case, it is wood cart. The Locomotive conforms to the LEGO Trains Rail system as well as the Power Functions so if you already have them, you can recreate the ending scene at BTTF 3. But that’s not all! Sakuretu has also included minifigures of Marty McFly, Doc Brown, as well as Clara in their western outfits. Accessories included are Marty’s pink hoverboard and the the colored Presto logs to push the DeLorean up to 88 mph.

If you like what you see, head over to the project page on CUUSOO and show your support. Note that the DeLorean is not included as it is available on [email protected]icon.

Update: There is now a video showcasing the Power Functions along with the Locomotive.
