LEGO Optimus Prime Lights Our Darkest Hour

One of the great crimes of the modern era is that Kre-o has the license for Transformers "building block" toys, and not LEGO.

Never mind. We've always got fans stepping in where companies fail, and in this case, it's Alex Jones, who's made an Optimus Prime so good that it doesn't even really look like a LEGO project...just a really great figure.

And yes, this is the same Alex Jones who made all that He-Man LEGO. Alex, where were you in the 1980s, when my childhood - and LEGO - needed you most?
