LEGO "Fall of Cybertron" Octane (Triple changer)


Ahh... Octane. Where do  I start ? As a toy, I never owned it. As a character in the G1 Transformers Cartoon, he failed to pique my interest. I kept wondering why I pined for him till now. As a fan of Transformers Triple Changers, Octane is right up there (with Springer/Snapdragon) as my top faves. I guess its because I never owned the toy that caused me to be more intrigued , especially how his transformation went about: From a tanker truck to an jetliner and then robot.  The best memory of him would be when I was small, we played with picture cards of various TV show characters (Ultramens, Gundams, Japanese Robots, TFs) , trying to amass as many picture cards as possible of various characters (kinda pointless coz they're sold dirt cheap from the shop with all possible variations:- 10cent each for a cutout of 8x6=48 cards!). From those picture cards, I remembered Octane the most (there are selections of  G1 TF picture cards slightly bigger than a stamp  with pictures of beautifully drawn TF boxarts). So there.

The "offending" boxart that mesmerised me.

Quickie of the Week #3: Work in Progress (Halted!)

Before I proceed to build something, I usually do a quick inventory check on the parts I have and made a rough guesstimate whether they're enough to get me by the whole process without interruption. And 90% of the time, I managed to get by , finding workaround building techniques if there are certain parts I lacked  that hindered my progress.

But this time around, I failed. I REALLY need certain specialised parts and and there's NO EXCEPTION nor workaround to "emulate" them. So during this "downtime" of not devotedly building my MOC , perhaps any of you would like to see what I'm up to lately? =)

As you can see, the placeholder yellow hinge is meant to be black . And there's a few more parts which I need to improve this MOC. I'm taking a 3 week break before the required parts arrive ( or maybe I start a quick , simple new project )
