Optimus Prime helmet

My 5 year old son is completely obsessed with Transformers (original 80's and the more recent 2015 cartoon).

I recently bought a load of furniture from IKEA and decided that putting the boxes in the recycling was a waste of good cardboard.

I started with the simplistic Ironman helmet template that's floating around the internet, and once built, started adding bits on to convert it.

It's not a copy of any specific head, but I'm happy that it's a close enough likeness that you instantly recognise which Autobot it's supposed to be. And my son is pretty happy with it to (having helped me paint it).

Instantly recognizable. Had I not read the post and only looked at pics, I wouldn't have been able to tell it wasn't a specific OP head. Looks great, hope your son enjoys it. You gonna do a full cardboard costume for him?

Yes, that's the next thing. Luckily I have plenty of cardboard to spare.
