Here's my first attempt at building something like this. I'd say I'm about 50% completed with construction at this point. This is by no means "screen accurate" but in the opinion of my 5 year old is "so cool" so I'm happy with that! Any ideas or feedback are welcomed!
This is awesome! I made my Optimus Prime G1 and showed it to my nieces over the holidays. I'm now in the process of making them helmets...your idea to use the kids construction hat is awesome, and I'm borrowing it. I'll post some pics once its done!
