Introduction: Optimus Prime Bed

This is a bed that I made for my son, based on Optimus Prime. I decided not to do an Instructable, since it's built off of an existing dresser and would be difficult to duplicate exactly.

Very cool!
Your son is a lucky boy, I have been trying to convince my Dad to get me a loft bed for a while but he's adamant about keeping my old one.

P.S.-How bad is the creaking when you shake the bed?

Oh, it doesn't creak. This is the second time I've made him a bed. The last one was a Thomas The Tank Engine bed, and he destroyed it pretty quickly. So this one is plenty beefy.

I asked because "It'll be creaky" is one of the common dismissive reasons my Dad says.

Optimus Prime bed AND a retro gaming system !!! Possibly the BEST combination ever ! Your son looks very happy too !

jeez that kid is happier than a fat kid with cake! I would be too. Although the crawl space underneath is pretty private, and the TV in it has a VCR. I would suggest knocking well before entering his room when he gets to be about 12 years old. hahah

Wow, what a great job! You must have blown your son's mind with this.

I noticed the plug+play game joystick, I have the exact same one! A throwback to my youth I suppose.

I recall many wasted hours playing on that silly thing, and while your son may have a more awesome bed than me, he's going to need to work those tiny fingers to be a pro at a few of those old arcade classics.

I'm calling your son out, I'm throwing down, I challenge him to a high score battle of Bosconian.

Tell your son to look me up when he's a master, I expect an epic showdown like in The Wizard.

That elevated bed of yours is actually quite similar to this, I just attached some plywood and painted it to give it a facade.
