Before we begin, let me get one thing off my chest. Beast Wars is way better than any of that old car stuff. Even better? The Fuzors era.
That being said, Stephen Hoad of Oz Modz out of Australia made a pretty impressive ode to that old car stuff with a transforming Optimus Prime custom build. It goes from tractor truck to full blown robot in one simple movement. He may be missing opposable arms, but it’s a damn computer, and one with some juicy guts.
Besides some nice components, Hoad shows off the mechanical workings of Optimus Primes’ transforming chassis in a series of insightful videos. See one for yourself.
