“I guess anything’s better than nothing.”
Here’s an homage to one of the more overlooked, yet lovable Transformers – Cosmos. Originally voiced by Michael McConnohie (hear my interview with the actor here), Cos was featured in the second, and to a lesser degree, third season episodes. I had some rounded-off green pieces lying around, not getting used, so I took it as challenge upon myself to bring the spaceborn Autobot to life.
He’s a bit smaller than most of my Lego Transformers, and he obviously transforms a bit differently than the original toy and the recent Generations remake. In fact, this was an exercise in speed and limitations. I spent less than an hour on this guy, using pieces that I pulled out right away, and fought the urge to put back. As such, there are a lot of studs showing. Some AFOLs pride themselves in stud elimination, something I occasionally make some effort at, and other times, I give a rat’s ass.
Still, Cosmos has guns this time! No screwing around with this guy anymore!
