Incredible Hearts of Steel Optimus On Ebay

{mosimage}You really must see this figure to believe it.  While technically a "bootleg", since it's not an official Hasbro product, it is an extraordinary piece of engineering and design.  This auction features Optimus Prime as he would have looked in IDW's "Hearts of Steel" mini-series, a comic which featured our beloved Autobots and Decepticons if they had been awakened in the early 20th century. Created entirely from scratch– through AutoCAD right down to machine-tooled pieces– Optimus Prime transforms from a powerful steam locomotive to the Autobot commander and back, and even features a trailer made from his coal tender.  Creator Griffith76 of the 2005 Boards describes the progress of the figure here.  You can discuss the topic here on our forums.
