For all you scardy-kats: this is made solely of LEGO.
early 2003 in college I decided to try this out, my buddy said "there's no way"; I said, I'll make it transform properly, even.
Lo and behold, I did it, it lasted 3 days before destroying it, without pics.
2 years later I wanted to re-create it. Again, "it won't look the same", me to him..."watch me"
Lo and behold, pictures this time.
At the same time I built it the first time I also created a 'Super Valkyrie" from Macross, and also a 37" wingsspan, very decent replica of B-2 Stelath Bomber, none of them had pics.
SO nNOW for the masterpeice of all my creation in time...
OPTIMUS PRIME: full scale to the original G1 die-cast model.
