I've never liked the Transformers. The franchise didn't get its hooks into me as a kid, and while I've tried to give it a shot as an adult, it never really clicked. But now, with a recommendation from almost everyone I know and a well-timed Humble Bundle sale that left me with three years worth (and counting) of IDW's More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise comics, I'm going on a quest to see if these comics can turn me from someone who has never cared at all about Optimus Prime into someone who uses words like "Cybertron" and "alt-mode" with alarming regularity. And Primus help me, it's working.
This week, it's the last stop before Dark Cybertron as Swerve continues to be better than everyone.
I’ve never liked the Transformers. The franchise never really got its hooks into me when I was a kid, and while I’ve tried to give it a shot as an adult, it’s never really clicked. But now, with the recommendations of almost everyone I know and a well-timed Humble Bundle sale, I’ve found myself in possession of three years worth (and counting) of IDW’s More Than Meets The Eye and Robots In Disguise comics.

This week, the Decepticons have a time machine. So, you know. That's not good.
Displaying a grasp of fake Lego mastery never before seen by human eyes, hobbyist Alex Jones (not that one, a German guy) spent two months of his life building the most amazing set of Masters of the UniverseLEGO you'll ever see, and may never buy. Check out a few of the more jaw-dropping pieces after the jump.
Any replica of the Ghostbusters headquarters usually makes me happy, but this Lego model created by Alexander Jones (aka Orion Pax) is really impressive. His model, which took him two months to make, features everything from Sp

nWe've talked about the creations of LEGO builder Orion Pax (alias Alex Schranz) before here at ComicsAlliance, highlighting his incredible custom figures and vehicles inspired by G.I. Joe, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Now, he's added yet another beloved '80s property to that list with a set based on M.A.S.K.!
Here at ComicsAlliance, we've got a soft spot for all things LEGO, and when they collide with all things comics, the results -- like Angus MacClane's CubeDude creations -- but we've never seen anything quite like Orion Pax's comic-inspired sculptures:
At first glance, his "LEGOptimus Prime" is a dead ringer for the original toy, but when you look closer, there's some incredibly creative part use that makes this figure great, like the use of 14 shiny daggers to make the truck grille. What's more, the small car is actually a motorized RC vehicle that fits inside the truck.
And that's far from the only amazing creation he's bu
