    Looking at some Transformer statues...

    Yes, it sucks that they can't transform but they seem very detailed and G1 Accurate.

    Looking at the Palisades, Diamond Select, and Hard Lines.

    Anyone have personal experiences with these?

    Any recommendations of who to get?

    Here's a previous thread, which includes a lengthy post from me about the various statues & busts. I'm a big fan.

    I only have the HH Starscream bust. He looks great on my shelf. I'm not into statues/busts but I do look to pick up the Starscreams for my collection.

    I have a few, the HH insecticons look awesome together! One thing to watch out for is the diamond select busts, they have a clear rod that runs from the base to the bust and it tends to crack or already be cracked when you open them, I bought two and both had cracks in them and the same thing happened to a friend.

    very nice ken! thanks for showing!

    I must say... the non-transformers ones look better, due to the muscles and definition.

    how much is the prime going for nowadays?

    Also is the 6" and 12" the same structure?

    I only buy Hard Hero busts. They're the most show accurate of all the statues and busts out there.
    The Hard Hero Rhinox figure is hands down the best they did though. It's like he walked straight out of yer tv set.
    Wheeljack and Cyclonus are my other two favorites.

    The nice thing about the Hard Hero statues is that they're all really cheap on Ebay!

    Yes the 6" is the same as the 12" statue. The 12" statues are hard to come by and the price is unknown too me right now as I have not looked them up in over 2 years now. Out of the 2 Megatron is the hardest to come by.

    I've picked up a few HH and Diamond statues of select characters. I really love the Soundwave stuff:

    I have HH Wheeljack, Ironhide, Prowl, Grimlock, and Devastator... and I love the hell out of all of them.
    I'd kill for that Soundwave, Lazerbeak, and Rumble statue though. Unicron and Omega Supreme too... too sexy!
