Of all the bizarre crossovers Transformers have done this year, somehow Minecraft just wasn’t one of them. We’ve seen Transformers arrive in World of Warships even though very few of them are ships (and none of them were featured in the event) and we’ve seen Transformers in the world of Smite which makes even less sense. As much as he'd like to think otherwise, Megatron was never a god.
Now, thanks to Reddit user goldfracture, we finally have Optimus Prime in Minecraft. Unofficially, of course–Hasbro hasn’t made any announcement and neither has Microsoft, but surely after this masterpiece’s unveiling, it’s only a matter of time.
Using Minecraft’s creator mode, goldfracture was able to not only create Optimus in both big-rig and robot forms, but they also managed to make Optimus transform between the two modes. This is likely done using the clone command to create each step of the transformation. You can enter Optimus in his vehicular form, but in robot form, there’s no door.
There’s also no sound, sadly. The characteristic electronic grinding sound of Transformers going from walky-walky to drive-y drive-y isn’t something that can easily be programmed into Minecraft, which instead just offers the usual “plunk” noise of blocks being placed.
There is at least a reference to this iconic TikTok video on goldfracture’s post, and many users have been able to approximate the transformation sounds using text.
If that's not enough Minecraft fun for today, then here's a Minecraft streamer who lost their 4,137-hour playthrough live on camera. He'd accidentally equipped a chest plate instead of wings, which resulted in the character taking a long trip into a deep quarry with a short and violent stop at the end.
