LEGO 10302 Optimus Prime’s designer sketched out a trailer

LEGO Creator Expert 10302 Optimus Prime doesn’t include a full trailer for the Transformers character’s

LEGO Creator Expert 10302 Optimus Prime doesn’t include a full trailer for the Transformers character’s truck, but the set’s designer has revealed he did sketch one out.

Weighing in at 1,508 pieces for £149.99 / $169.99 / €169.99, 10302 Optimus Prime – a result of the LEGO Group’s first-ever collaboration with fellow toy industry giant Hasbro – achieves the baseline of any LEGO Transformers set, which is to say that it’s fully able to transform with no rebuilding required. You can switch from Optimus’s robot to truck form and back again seamlessly.

What you can’t do is switch the Autobot to his truck form and then attach it to his trailer, because the Combat Deck (which also stores the wheeled drone module known as Roller) is absent from the 18+ set. Given that already hefty price tag, it’s perhaps no surprise the design team decided not to indulge in the budget required to realise the trailer – but it did cross designer Joseph Patrick Kyde’s mind.
