News Post: Transformers Movie Resin Statues From Hong Kong Toy Fair 2013
Movie Allspark? a $300 brick! please tell me none of use are THAT rabid a fan.
Fools like them in a fair world would simply go out of business
I'm not positive, but I kinda think DMK Prime may actually be a slightly more accurate sculpt. Those abs don't look quite right to me.
Don't get me wrong, these are fantastic and if they weren't so expensive they might even be tempting. But for a couple hundred dollars plus a little paint the DMK are pretty comparable...
Speaking of which I hope Takara decides to do a couple more DMK for the next movie. Those guys were amazing and it's a crime we only have BB and Prime.
Cool. Outrageously expensive, but cool.
I would be very interested to meet anyone who buys one of these.
Also, don't his swords shoot out of his arms in the movie? I don't remember him holding them like that (but please correct me)
Overpriced Robot Replicas? Yay.
I think in DOTM when the Driller and Shockwave steal the engine part from the Ark Optimus holds his sword in way much like the statue does.
But yes, his swords also shoot of his arms in ROTF and the first movie.
is it just me or does all things that come from that country seem ridiclously priced and Optimus' swords aren't right to me they look really weird lol
Wow! With money like that I'd rather just buy some MPs and bank the rest.
Some people, me included, have trouble affording Herc. This isn't G1, nor can they even Transform. Good luck selling those.
Cool? Yeah. 1400 & 1700 dollars cool? Not even close!
Prime's torso looks too....fat... to me anyway
Price aside, those are freaking AMAZING. That said, I'll never own one unless some stroke of luck made me an overnight millionaire.
Honestly, I'd rather have that than any of the character statues. As cool as those are, I think I prefer cheaper version that are transformable (and I'd have to be less careful with).
Human Alliance Bee and ROTF Leader Prime are very good versions of the characters, so I'm content with those.
And I just think the look of the movie Allspark is nice...
But 300 dollar nice? Maybe not...
I would imagine if you wanted a replica ALLSPARK your best bet is the USB hub version or one of the little model ones that are a couple of inches square.
I could see more useful things made in ALLSPARK shape like a document lock box, a comic book storage box a Lunch Box or a small Toolbox for Modelling tools or storing paint in for example.
Something scaled to the version same uses might even be duel use - it's a Movie prop and it's also the right general sort of scale to the full size version if used with Legion/Legends toys.
Agreed - I have the DMK Optimus, and except for the lack of a nice "clear coat" paint sheen, he looks every bit as detailed. Plus you get the fun of building it. Speaking of which, I'd really like to add such a sheen to him but have been too chicken to do so.
Go by many people here, the collectors are barely on Hasbro's radar.
So in a way this does prove them wrong but dismisses what most collectors want at the time.
I actually got a movie Allspark after I saw Optibotimus' review of it. I keep it on a broken behind a pile of other junk. I don't look at it much or play with it at all
It comes with a battery operated feature where it tries to remove your face.......possibly
Those are really, really nice.
We need a Sentinel and Shockave, though.
Interviewer sounds like he crapped his pants when the prices were mentioned.
