nanoblock motion Choro-Q Optimus Prime Unboxing

Here is a quick unboxing video for the new nanoblock motion Choro-Q Transformers Optimus Prime from Takara Tomy. 

It is basically a bluetooth enabled remote control truck which you can control using your iPhone or Android smartphones using an app. It comes with all the bricks needed to build both the robot and vehicle at the same time. It takes 10 seconds to charge and plays for about 60 seconds. 

I got it from here

nanoblock Singapore Airlines Plane

This is my design for a Singapore Airlines plane =) ... It was originally based on the Airbus A380, but there were details that I could not replicate at this size unless I printed it on stickers ... so it's more like A380 inspired, rather than a A380 replica =) ...
