LEGO 31023 Alternate Mode: Skyracer with instructions

Set Creator 31023 is my favorite LEGO set so far this year (2014). This is because this gem of a set have 3 very solid alternate modes (which doesn't come often in a typical Creator Set) , and the building techniques are very fulfilling for me during my play with it. After spending  a week or so indulging on this set, it's time for a customary MOC using it. 

As usual, if possible, the MOCs I made from official sets will be "more than meet the eyes". And this is no exception.

LEGO Ultra magnus: Part 3 of 3 (Robot mode)

If you're new here, please click below to see previous parts.
OK . Assuming you're done with the above (which  I insist you do).... then let's proceed with the final instalment of LEGO Ultra Magnus.

A Lil' Recap

This MOC is inspired by Ultra Magnus, from G1 Transformers cartoon series. The original toy of UM is literally a brick ..consisting of a white Optimus Prime combined with the armor transformed from the car carrier trailer he towed.

LEGO Ultra Magnus: Part 2.5 of 3 (Transformation photos and videos)

Firstly, I didn't plan for this (post) earlier. But after finding out the photos I'm planning to publish soon (plus the videos I've shot), UM transformation sequence merits its own post entry. I guess by dedicating one just for the transformation, I can avoid causing photo fatique later when post number #3 is published on UM robot mode.

And oh yes, if you're new here. Please visit part 1 and part 2 of Ultra Magnus below:

LEGO Ultra Magnus: Part 2 of 3 (cab mode)

If you haven't read part 1 yet, click here to do so.  Otherwise..... enjoy!

LEGO Ultra Magnus: Part 1 of 3 (vehicle mode)

Ultra  Magnus  is a G1 Transformers character whose toy shared  the same cab mould as G1 Optimus. So the original toy version transformed into a white colored Prime robot, with his car carrier forming an exo-skeleton/armor for him... increasing his size tremendously. 

I am splitting this MOC photos to be published in few parts. This first and second part will focus solely on the vehicle modes, because of the sheer number of photos I wish to share with all you guys! 

Let's go!

LEGO Ultra Magnus: A retrospective reminiscent

While setting up my current Ultra Magnus MOC for photoshoot, I've just found out my SD cards were totally unusable (yes, all 3 of them... one being a microSD). So I'm stuck with the limited internal storage in my digicam to be utilised.  Since I only managed to snap just half a dozen photos  so far, I'd guess why not I prepare this article to let you guys know about my past UM creations.
