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!
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!
