Hold All the Horses, LEGO Has Made a Transforming Optimus Prime

Those mad geniuses at LEGO have pulled off another miracle. They’re producing an Optimus Prime LEGO set that fully transforms from robot to truck. And not by disassembling the model and rebuilding it. They found a way transform him without taking anything apart; and it’s similar to the original toy transformation as well!

Roll freakin’ out!

Oh man, what a joy to behold. You can check out more pictures and information at the official LEGO site. I’m buying this baby as soon as I can — and I already just spent a bunch of money on that LEGO Tallneck from Horizon Forbidden West! C’mon, LEGO! Cut me some slack!

But yeah, this baby looks gorgeous. The detail is fine, the cool factor is through the roof and the fact that it can transform is unbelievable. Some knock-off brick brand made Transformers a couple of years ago. And here comes LEGO to show them how it’s really done.

LEGO Optimus Prime comes out on June 1, only a couple of weeks away. I’ll be out of town on that day, so I’ll have to hope I can snag a copy sometime later. The whole thing is going to cost $170, which is fine by me. Just give me transforming LEGO Optimus Prime!

6 Other Video Game LEGO Sets I Want to See

I had a bit of an adventure this past weekend trying to get my hands on the LEGO set of the Horizon: Forbidden West Tallneck. I had to go out of town to the nearest LEGO store, only to quickly learn that it was also a big day for new Star Wars LEGO and a huge line had formed even before the store opened! Suffice to say, I did not get my Tallneck…

This big, beautiful boy arrives in the mail today!

…at the store. I just went home and immediately ordered it on Amazon for the exact same price, with free shipping. So I’ll be getting the LEGO Tallneck this week no problem! I think it’s great that LEGO is branching out into more video game sets. They’ve done some recently for Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog, and I own a couple of the Overwatch sets. This is hopefully the start of even more LEGO sets from video games!

Join me after the jump for more video game-themed LEGO sets I want to see in the future.

Look at This Big, Beautiful LEGO Boy!

I’ve reached a point in my love of LEGO that seeing a good set can take my breathe away. Such was the case with this new LEGO Tallneck set from Horizon Zero Dawn, a really awesome video game for the Playstation. Just look at this big, beautiful boy!

So much detail, so much perfection, so many little accessories; this thing is a work of art. It helps that I absolutely loved the Horizon Zero Dawn game and can’t wait to play the sequel, Horizon Forbidden West, which comes out today. The game isn’t a day-one buy, but I will immediately snatch up this LEGO set when it comes out at the end of May.

I’m just amazed at the level of detail and the finely designed pieces. It’s just so damn beautiful! And it’s only going to set me back $80, which isn’t half bad. Now I just gotta be patient and snag a box when the time is right!

LEGO Star Wars is Doing a Whole Video Game Thing

I played the heck out of the original LEGO Star Wars video game back in the day. That was good stuff. And now the whole thing has come full circle, bigger and better than ever, with LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. All nine movies. Over 300 playable characters. Just about everything one could want.

I don’t know if I will play this game. I loved the original, and I love the idea of these games, but I find that I rarely actually get attached to playing a LEGO game. I’ve tried a couple in the recent past, but I kept losing interest. I don’t know why. So I do not know if I’ll be playing The Skywalker Saga when it comes out. We’ll see what else I’ve got going on on April 5.

My Maggott Action Figure is Real

I’m a big action figure aficionado. I have a nice, big collection, mostly made up of my favorite comic book characters. They’re fun collectibles. And another one of my favorites is getting the Marvel Legends treatment in the upcoming year.

Behold, Maggott the action figure!

Classic 90s look

He will come with his signature slugs, they’re just not in this one early picture of the figure. I can be patient. This baby will come out sometime in 2022 and I’mma gonna scoop it right up and add it to my collection. Oh to live in a world where Maggott is finally getting his due!
