Growing up in the ’80s I got to spend lots of hands-on time with the original Transformers toys and watched plenty of the cartoons. Kids today get the feature films, which aren’t as cool as the original stuff to most of us.

As his chosen moniker gives away, LEGO enthusiast Alex Jones aka Orion Pax is a huge fan of Transformers. It’s no surprise that one of his ongoing builds is a replica of his namesake, specifically a Generation 1 Optimus Prime.
Having grown up in the 80s and being a huge fan of the Transformers toys I can admit to wanting to punch Michael Bay in the face over the horrible Transformers films.
