Create an Optimus Prime Barn Find

June 29, 2022



Of course, the LEGO® Optimus Prime set (10302) has been out for a while. And he's shining as ever. But how did he get back after such a long time? Maybe just like this "Barn Find" MOC made by hachiroku24.

This awesome diorama makes it look like Optimus prime has been standing outside for many years without anyone looking. Clever use of different browns and oranges makes it look like big rust spots have appeared on him. However, enough of the "original" color and detail has still been added to the structure to preserve the distinctive characteristics of Optimus Prime. By using a nicely dressed base plate and dressing it with plants and other objects, you get even more of a feeling like Optimus Prime has been left unattended for a long time and nature has slowly taken possession of him.


Optimus Prime, known in Japan as Convoy is a fictional character from the Transformers franchise. He is a Cybertronian, a fictional alien species of self-configuring modular robotic life forms with sentience. These are objects like cars and other machines that can transform into robots. Optimus is the leader of the Autobots, a faction of Transformers who are rivals of the Decepticons, another faction. He is characterized by his strong moral character and is almost always portrayed as the main hero of the story, taking on the evil Decepticons leader Megatron.

More Barn Finds

On hachiroku24's YouTube channel, you can still find many cool dioramas of well-known and perhaps lesser-known cars. For example, he also made a Barn Find Diorama of the LEGO® DeLorian (10300) and the LEGO® Ecto-1 (10274). We would like to thank hachiroku24 very much for sharing these great display models. Also, don't forget to follow him on Instagram, his twitter account or you can also check out great photos on his flickr account.
