This amazing Transformer is made entirely out of LEGO. There isn’t a lot of information about the build, but there are more pictures of the completed project on the web site. I thought the police car was nice, never mind that it transformed into a giant robot!

    “LEGO” is a mass noun, and should never have an “s” at the end of it.

    Very very impressive, I love it. A suggestion for the video, make it completely stop motion, no hands visible, maybe even do it against a background the same colour as the support frame, to look even more awesome

      Stop motion would be great!
