Don Figueroa is a Filipino-American artist and a toy designer whose is best known for his work on many different Transformers designs. An early concept drawing of Rolling Thunder Optimus Prime by Don Figueroa was produced for a Transformers/GI Joe crossover comic, but it never came into fruition. Alex Jones has used the concept drawing to create a LEGO version of Rolling Thunder Optimus Prime using Olive Green, a challenge in itself as this colour has limited parts.
LEGO has provided us details for a new product line called LEGO BrickHeadz, coming in 2017, which allows builders to “create, collect and display versions of iconic characters and superheros out of classic LEGO bricks and elements.”
The first versions will be unveiled at San Diego ComicCon (SDCC) next week, where fans can get a sneak peak at this upcoming line.
