    Live from Toyfair 2007 is coverage of Corgi's display of licensed movie items, including 10 inch statues of Optimus Prime and Megatron, a 10 inch battlescene statue of Bumblebee fighting Barricade on a collapsed highway, 12 inch "snap kits" of Optimus and Bumblebee, minibusts of Optimus, Bumblebee, Barricade and Megatron, a very sharp looking Bumblebee mug as well as mugs based on the heads of Optimus Prime and Megatron and perhaps coolest of all - an Optimus Prime cookie jar.

    There's lots more to see as well, so head on over to our gallery: http://www.tfw2005.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=1648

    CGI of Jazz's Face. Clearer shots of that and new Blackout robot mode coming later.

    Anyway. Sweet. Hope Corgi gets the Megatron head memo.

    Does Corgi have exclusive rights to making movie statues? And where is F4F?

    All that tat and not a single diecast car, how very unlike Corgi.

    Some of that stuff is actually pretty cool though.

    Looks like he still has the vizor beneath that, though (the vizor flips further down to cover the face, like with Master Chief).

    Oh, and those minisets seem to be freaking SWEET. Pity it's only sketches.

    Y'know, I've never been into busts-- I only have Hard Hero Ironhide, which I won as a door prize at last year's Botcon-- but I may just have to get the one of Barricade or Barricade vs. Bumblebee, assuming they turn out nice enough.

    And a Megatron mug... yeah, how would you be able to drink from THAT thing? It'd spill all over the place!

    those minibusts DONT EXIST, these pictures as mostly pure shit, corgi obviously havent actually made anything yet, not even prototypes.

    so the best they can offer up is... sketches of what the statues will look like, and for the busts -

    the same old cgi renders we've already seen, pasted in photoshop onto some generic stands!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    now whats all this about blackout having a new robot mode?!

    *Sigh* Kjeevahh, they DO exist, they are only showcasing them with mockups to get the idea out there. Hasbro didn't show anything Transformer-related at Toyfair UK because of prototype problems, does that mean they don't exist?

    And Blackout doesn't have a new robot mode; just a new CGI render of it, m'kay? :)

    no you misunderstand me... somone said they wanted to pick them up because they look cool, so i was pointing out that they do not exist - in that form - as they are just photoshop jobs that likely bear little resembalnce to the final things, i wasnt trying to say that there will be no mini-busts.

    man jazz looks HIDEOUS without his faceplate on, he looks like the green goblin! he looks so great in battlemode, i hope he stays in it most of the time.

    cant wait to see blackout..
