LEGO Optimus Pram / Chibi Optimus Prime

As you can see, this is not a typo I made on the blog title :)


Actually the term "Optimus Pram" suddenly popped out of my brain more than  a year ago, and every time I think about it, it made me chuckle :)   I gotta get this off my brain once and for all, hence the purpose I create this MOC.

I built this baby eeer baby carriage more than 1 month ago but kept it under wraps. Since today is April Fool's Day.....   let's roll him out and hope this made you all flabbergasted!

Shadow Wing: LEGO 31021 Furry Creatures alternate design + INSTRUCTIONS!


I was looking forward to getting set 31021: Furry Creatures since last year because the boxart itself showed incredible amount of parts that will be useful for my MOC. All those slopes and woah... it doesn't dissapoint! I opened the set last week and quickly built through each official model on  a daily basis.  I just want to dismantle it and harvest the parts and quickly MOC it!

[LATEST UPDATE 26th Mar 2014] 
My previous MOC's instructions were painstakingly uploaded into my blog and arranged. I no longer wish to do that! Here I  have compiled my instructions in a PDF document for immediate download . Click on the link below fellas! (My first time using dropbox too!)

LEGO Powermaster Optimus Prime part 1 of 2


INTRO

First thing first.............. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014 everyone! 

I think my MOC needs no introduction. its OPTIMUS PRIME!! What shall I say more to describe him? OK let me start by revisiting the Optimus Prime I made many, many years ago (link below):


Back then, that's as close as I can get trying to make a Powermaster Optimus Prime . But then again, it looked nothing like PM Prime except for the basic concept of  Regular Prime + Trailer / Exo-skeleton = More badass Prime. But as the time goes by, I felt a need to do PM Prime greater justice since its one of my favorite G1 toy . Guess what, the whole thing (part 1 and part 2) took me a bit over 2 months and considering the complexity of this project and my life schedule, I'm giving myself a huge pat on the back for a job well done!

I'm on Instagram!

While a blog is good for publishing photos and writeups , I think I need an avenue to share quick updates on what i've been up to lately .  Finally , I decided to share my LEGO-Transformers related activities via Instragram (link below).


As a bait to lure you into following me, here's my work-in-progress recently =)

Instructions for LEGO 31007 Power Mech Alternate Design - Transformer "Spring"

I have a very, very legit reason why I'm late in posting these instructions: I'm "up to something again" aka  new MOC project!  Yeah it kinda started out of a sudden about a month ago and I haven't been looking back since. But this huge MOC project is draining all (yes, ALL) my light grey bricks . I'm taking  a short break while compiling my "shopping list" and hit bricklink.com later.

Ok.... back to the instructions ....

(If you're new here, click the link below to view photos of Spring, made from set 31007 Power Mech. If you're tempted to build one on your own, this post will provide the steps )

LEGO 31007 Power Mech Alternate Design - Transformer "Spring"

When set 31007 was launched earlier this year, some Transformers fans quickly relate it to Springer, a triple changer from Transformers G1 cartoon series. I can see why, with the green color, the 2 matching alternate modes besides the mech mode (helicopter and vehicle).   

(By the way, I made a LEGO Springer few years ago: link here)


So as a fan of Creator, I bought one, played around with it, and then MOC it to become "Spring", a fictional Transformer that merely transform into one alternate mode.
