Introduction: My First Transformer Craft (revised)

I am going to show you photos of my first mostly paper transformer, (these are old photos from october 2013) my creation is now torn up because of my younger brother, but at least it looked good at the time.

I noticed that in the front of the vehicle mode it says "rom 12:2" why does it say that?

author

Rom 12:2

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be TRANSFORMED by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is his good, pleasing and perfect will.

I just thought that it would be a fun idea to put THAT scripture reference on the front. Besides, even if that has nothing to do with this creation, just know that I did this creation about a year ago, and I may have been tired at the time.

hi again! This is Mrs. P the Creative Director who got in touch with you some months ago! I was in a bad car accident and then couldn't remember how to find you on here until just now!!! How is your dad? If I have the correct person, I believe he was ill. I am much better now and I know that you said you were not only busy with your dad but also a project! I would still love to get a transformer project with instructions to help teach the Biblical Principles I was talking about before...remember: being "transformed by the renewing of your mind" scripture? Please contact me at your earliest convenience. I was hoping to teach this before we went out on Christmas break.

Take care and I look forward to hearing from you real soon! Merry Christmas/ Happy Holidays! LydiaP1 kdk_arts@gmail.com I hope this is the email I gave you!

Hello Mrs. Pitt! Thanks for checking up! My father is doing great now, and we are pretty much back in order. I'll tell you some of what I'm doing in a private message, but just know we are doing fine!

Can you show an 'ible for it plzz

author

if you mean "instructable", than sure! Right after I'm done with the one I'm working on right now. By the way, I'm working on a better female transformer at the moment, so stay tuned for that! :)

Lol his head has magnetic tape in front of it

author

That IS the head, I later made a better head and some more extra parts for him, but he was torn up by the time I had a chance to take pictures of it. So really, you are only seeing what he looked like before he was done. ):

But that's okay, I'm not concerned that much about the way the head looked, what matters more is how I engineered it. (;

Aww man that sucks

I almost cried when I found it all torn up, but of course, I'm over it now.

Great I think Legos are an easier medium for creating transformers so I appreciate it when someone makes one out of paper

author

Thanks for the appreciation! I do lego transformers too, and I simply love it! Here's some pictures of a Fembot female transformer I made a week ago, I call her fire ant. (Note: she looks better in real life, her upper body is not that big, she just has ant legs on her back, very big ant legs.) So here she is:

Oh, I forgot to tell you that her hands are different on some of the pictures because the red hands weren't working as we'll so I switched her hands to the white hands.

It's a she?

author

Yes it is! I tried to give her feminine features, like big hips, and boobies. (I did not intend to make your testosterone levels higher.) But you can't see her feminine features that well in the pictures apparently. She looks more female in real life.

Thanks for commenting on her pictures! I've been waiting for feedback on how she looks for a long time! =D

I could see her feminine "features" by the way. Oh, I don't have diabetes.

author

Well, it is pretty easy to make out if you know what your looking at. (Thank God you DON'T have diabetes!) (;

I watched most of the g1 episodes, so I agree that he has some similarity.

Thanks for your comment!

He looks like kup (if you watched transformers generation 1 from the 80's)

Thanks! Here's a link to my newest transformer craft instructable. (Note: the you may not be able to see the vehicle mode very well in the photos but I did my best with an iPad camera) https://www.instructables.com/id/Chainsaw-a-Wire-Transformer/
Hope you will like it!

Oh, I also used a special magnetic tape, that you can easily buy at Office Depot, some packing tape and a Elmer's school glue stick.

-J.R.

author

The magnet tape is what held it together in truck mode

Thank you for asking, it did not start out very complicated. In fact all I did was make a half box out of construction paper, and then cut it up and add more pieces of paper.

I can't show you how to do it because, like I said in the instructable, it has been destroyed, but I did manage to take a few pictures of it before it's destruction.

Also, when I do a papercraft, I go into this certain "creativity mode" and often can't remember what I did.

Hope to do more instructables.

This looks really cool. I love functional paper toys. Any chance you could do a more detailed instructable, or at least describe how you ended up with a working model? Thanks for sharing!
