Comments from the Judges

JenX: That's Brilliant!

Aiela: Okay, this was too cool for words. I kept looking at the other ones thinking they almost looked like they could fold up a la transformers, but this one actually does!

Moominmuppet: I'm insanely impressed with this, but it doesn't actually feel "pimped"

Bec76: Lego transformers rule! Great animation, that sold it

Chris: I love this model a lot, but I wish the car form had a bit more chrome on it. An awesome effort that deserved the win.

This mod was done since when I think about pimping, I think about cars. Sure, it's cool when you can stomp around with a bigass battlemech. However, nothing beats cruising the strip in a sleek, streamlined ride.
So why not have both?
Obviously, the main problem with the concept was how to make a mech that would transform into a slick car, while still maintaining the look of the original set. My version is a tad bigger than the original, but the only concession to the shape was the fold-out hood of the car. The name, UpRev, is a wink to the name of the original set: Uplink.
