Transformable Midi-scale Bots

Transformers are certainly not in disguise in the LEGO community lately. The excitement builds for the release of the next Transformers film, and fans like PsychoBrick46 are building and transforming some LEGO MOC's for the occassion. Though these bots are designed using simple parts, what I really appreciate about them is how well they transform. Both bots are fully transformable, without having to "rebuild" them by taking them completely apart and then building them differently. They function much like the actual Transformers toys, where you turn parts around, pop off parts and put them on at a different angle, etc. For a better understanding of how well they transform, check over on the builder's YouTube channel, where he has posted some breakdowns!


Nathaniel Stoner

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here
