    I know the reason alot of people collect the figures and don't normally like TF merch that doesn't transform. But who among you collects things that don't Transform? I have Soundwave and Grimlock's Hard Hero busts and I plan on buying more statues and busts over the years.

    I don't buy anything of the sort. Not at all interested in them. Mainline transforming figures only here, and even those I don't complete.

    I have all of the Hard Hero busts, Optimus Prime and Megatron full size statue, and the Insecticons. I also have the Palisades Grimlock Statue. I love the Transformers statues. I only need a few more of the Hard Heros, then I start collecting Palisades. You can see my statues in the link in my sig.

    The only Statue I bought was the Palisades Arcee, For obvoous reasons. Other than that, I really don't get in Statues or Busts. I do think they look pretty awesome though!

    I get both. I'm not a completist, so I just buy the ones I think look nice... which left out HH's stuff entirely. I've got some Diamond Select stuff as well as Palisades.

    I've got the Hard Hero busts of Optimus and Prowl. I would've gotten more, but the cost adds up too fast. :( 

    So instead, I'm collecting the Robot Heroes. :p

    Yup-everything TF-related produced by Hard Hero & Palisades. Not sure what's happening with F4F, but will definitely be grabbing the upcoming Diamond releases.

    I've got some of the Hard Hero stuff, but most of the stuff Palisades put out I've got. I wasn't horribly impressed by the F4F Prime/Megs piece, but the rest of their stuff looks promising if they ever come out. I'll grab a lot of the Diamond busts, and that Omega statue is a must. If I can find room.

    I have the Art Asylum aka Diamond Selects mini-busts on order - all that have been put up so far.

    I am also in talks with a former Palisades guy to get his Statues....

    As for the Hard Hero stuff - just not interested at all.

    I buy the Busts and Statues if they are good looking and not super expensive. Example: The Omega Supreme on the other thread it really nice but to much coin.

    Lord knows I have a crapload of Palisades stuff. On a side note, if anyone is looking for Palisades TF statues artists proofs or prototypes shoot me a PM.

    I wish first 4 figures would have got the BW Megatron vs Rhinox Battlefield statue out. :(

    Wanted to but I thought I better stick to toys...the closest I ever came to buying a statue ironically, was not a TF one but the huge King Kong vs V-Rex one...really beautiful IMO!

    I bought two Rhinox statues, both ended up breaking for various reasons (not my fault directly afaik). I also got that TFW SD Magnus statue from that contest way back when... still in one piece. :)  Otherwise, no statues here.

    On a side note, it's such a huge disappointment that nothing came of those Beast Wars busts by F4F.

    I have the Hard Hero Optimus statue and bust (broke intransit), the smaller Pali Megatron and the large Pali Optimus statues.


    Oh, and the Optimus wall statue. I really want that Battlefield Prime statue but he seems to be really rare these days.

    Here's some bad news for BWuvers. I placed an order with F4F directly for the Optimus Primal bust and received an email awhile ago stating, that due to poor retailer demand, the entire Beast Wars line will not be going into production, my order was cancelled. Though, they assured me that the Baroness/Ravage, Optimus/Snakeyes statues would see production. Where the hell are they?
