Optimus Prime - Robot Mode (War for Cybertron)
Success! My first ever Megabot :D
It should come to no surprise that my first one will be that of Optimus Prime (taking into account my previous entries) and this particular one is based on his design from the game Transformers War for Cybertron.
It took me a while to acquire enough RP to get the parts I wanted to make the build (Mega Wheels and Mega Legs) and after a few hours of farming, I caved in and merely bought the Mega SMGs with GC. Admittedly, it meant that I get to use the cool sleek versions of the Mega SMG so I'm not too fussed about it. I also get to support the devs which is always a plus.
Farming woes aside, it took me more than a couple of iterations to get his proportions to look just right. There were times when his chest was too wide, his arms were too long or his arms too big. There was also a time when, while building this, the proportions he turned out with made him look like a gorilla which I was very unsatisfied with. Thankfully enough, I was able to get him to the size and proportions I wanted him to be.
I initially thought I would only be able to fit 6 guns on him so I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to fit 2 more which was very good for the bot in terms of performance. I think there are probably ways so I can make the weapon placements look a little more 'organic' as opposed to simply attached onto him but for now, I'm satisfied with the way it looks.
Another thing that took me a while to make was the inscribed/engraved Autobot symbol on his back. I had to delete one of my existing bots to make room for a bay just so I can experiment on making that particular face. At the end of it, I think I was able to make a pretty recognizable Autobot symbol with the size constrictions I was given.
One last really cool thing I love about this build is that the mega-module is sitting comfortably within his chest cavity which makes it a very good make-shift Matrix of Leadership, or at least a proxy for it anyway xP.
