Half of me wants to believe that this amazing Lego version of Optimus Prime (the Michael Bay movie version) that can actually transform into a robot is legit. But the other half of me is having a hard time believing that Ralph Savelsberg didn’t just hire Industrial Light & Magic to help fake these photos with CG.
But this isn’t Savelsberg’s only Lego creation. He’s been building masterpieces like this for years now. And even though transforming this model is, as he puts it, “...horrendously complicated and awkward and some bits will inevitably fall off in the process,” the results are still well beyond what the rest of us could ever hope to build.
