be fair guys this was done by an 8 year old if your sons really serious about trying to make it exactly like optimums prime this is what you should do what you should do is get the mask/Helmut for reference or some other refrence that you can turn any wich way so you can see the details then have him figure out what colors he needs to build each area (build it in sections esp cause not many ppl have that large a suplly of blue black and silver leggos and this may take a while unless u scale it down) leggo does sell bulk blocks on the web site by color still not one to critisize in a contest leggo ran when i was a kid i made a space ship that looked like the patradge famly buss r rocket engines

Hi, this is Rosedale25's mom -- thank you for your helpful words. Now, I'll educate myself -- what is the "mask/Helmut" you refer to above? Can you link me to instructions? My son wanted to build a sphere, but found it difficult to curve the edges properly.

We have a *truckload* of Lego at home -- our fav. Lego expert right now is Nathan Sawaya. We saw an online CNN report about him and his fabulous work.

He has build more indepth models, but I'm not sure his brain has learned to think in "sections"

Cheers,
RD25's Mom!

I feel bad for your son, him having to go through people bullying him. I'm happy that he even has the opportunity to play with Legos.

Happy building rosedale25!

author

Hey, he said that he was more concerned about the design and not the coloration! )^:(

Check out mine you can build it. It's pretty good..... :'(

I'm sorry about what Mr. Seabananers said, that was just plain mean. I really do think that this is a cute model, I think this looks like a new cartoon version of Optimus Prime! (:

the frme of his head looks ok but colors are something you need to work on and more detail would be better but still, good job!

i feel so insulted ooooooooooooooohhhhhhhh

author
tankboyben (author)stewmeat952007-10-18

yes stew I couldn't make one better what with it being such a complicated structure!! i'll admit at the time I posted the comment I didn't know the kid was 8 so kudos to him and if you actually read the comment I wasn't really being that nasty was I? infact I stated that when I was that young my lego creations wernt much better. as for you well name calling is pretty pathetic.

When ever you need to take close up pictures, like the one on step six, you can turn on the "Macro" Function in your camera. If it's a CyberShot, it's a flower like button on the back. Keep on posting, and don't let your mom type in for you! Show her you can do it by your self. Saludos.

there are a lot of really great instructables by a lot of really creative people, and this is one of them.

Hey, if the boy's 8 years old, then give him mad props, how long did it take him to make this one, or did he just figure it out as he went?

author
Rosedale25 (author)2007-08-02

Hi everyone, thank you for your funny and interesting comments. My son posted these instructions-- he's 8. I think it's such a hoot that he's blissfully and perfectly unaware that his project is anything but wonderful. He's particularly inspired by the Transformers made out of k'nex. I'm going to let him read the comments and see if he can't improve on his first efforts. Cheers, Rosedale25's Mom!

Rosedale25 (author)bedbugg22007-08-06

1BadMotha (author)2007-08-04

I gave you a + rating because at least it isn't yet another insipid k'nex instructable. Good job.

This is awesome, keep it up guys!

Rosedale25 (author)2007-08-02

Yes, I think there is a true likeness to Marge. Hilarious. Mom

lemonie (author)2007-08-02

In consideration of other comments, you should care about colour. Still, no one has yet advised you to use the macro function on the camera...
