Transforming Rolling Thunder Optimus Prime

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.

Rolling Thunder Optimus Prime transforms from robot mode, complete with a rolling weapons system, to vehicle mode, aka Supreme Tactical Commander Grand Patriot
