    just saw this on BBTS' website. Same style as the icons megatron bust.

    Optimus Icons bust

    is this the new style for the diamond select busts? i am personally not a fan of the armless busts, and i didn't see anything about the previous line from dst at comic-con. so is that the end of the line?

    which tf ones did you do (not sure if your site was all work by you or a group)? i own the palisades war within prime, but not ravage or laserbeak becasue i never got soundwave. I really loved that statue line, but sadly i got into it at the tail end and i only have 4 (WW Prime, BB, Wheeljack and Skywarp) that devastator statue is a "grail" of mine.

    This Icon's line pisses me off I liked what they already had going. I sent them an e-mail asking why they had no busts on the schedule to get released this year. Their response:

    "We are releasing an animated version of Megatron & a Armored Jetfire this year. Also we are start our new Icon's line."

    Uh, they are both exclusives and I wanted to keep going on the line I have already started. Oh well I guess I will spend my money somewhere else.

    that's too bad... i was hoping we'd get a few more of the less mainstream characters. i was really happy with the inclusion of bluestreak and such. I was hoping to finally get a sideswipe/sunstreaker bust.

    It looks a bit funky without the arms.

    I feel as though I am the only one on their site that asks questions about Transformers I would like more fans of the line to contact to show there is interest in the line. I would like to see a Sunstreaker & Sideswipe as well but I can not believe they did not do Rodimus Prime or Hotrod. We got a Galvatron & Ultra Magnus even a Arcee but yea a lot still missing.

    Not a big fan of busts but that actually looks pretty cool. Resembles his G1 self perfectly, ya know, even though he doesn't have arms.

    For Palisades I did TWW Optimus Prime, Ravage, and Laserbeak. I also did a giant Beast Wars Megatron vs. Rhinox for First 4 Figures but that was never produced AFAIK.

    I did all the work on my site with the exception of some of the block figures. Those were collaborative pieces.

    Without legs arms must be present. I'm not a fan of busts but there should at least be arms. Preferably one holding a weapon.

    Are they actually replacing their normal line with this? Or is this just a new sub-line?

    Because if it's the 1st then that seems like such a waste to me.
    I mean losing a license would be one thing but actually being able to continue such a great product and simply choosing not to? That would be such a shame.

    As far as the Icons line goes, I really dislike the no arms thing they've got going on.
    Plus, this is the 4th Optimus and 4th Megatron bust they release.
    I know Optimus and Megatron are serious players in the Transformers mythos but come on.

    Next thing you know these busts will have no heads either... it'll just be a torso laying on the ground with no base to stand on.

    I love the look of this bust, but I don't like the fact that it doesn't have arms.
