    Hey guys, I'm thinking of making some custom statues for BotCon but I'd like to know what character the fans would like to see in statue form the most. It will probably be either on a 4" scale or a 6" scale. And they would probably be relatively expensive.

    Who would you like to see the most?

    I'd personally love to do a G1 Cosmos, just not sure if the interest would be there.

    How about a single cassette from either Blaster or Soundwave?

    I was thinking of something like this Soundwave statue, but with just the Autobot cassettes. Maybe more like a diorama.

    After seeing that Blaster Spotlight cover art, I'm in love with the personality of the little guys!

    So my vote would be for Steel Jaw.

    Hmm, that's not a bad idea. I designed Laserbeak and Ravage for Palisades to go with their Soundwave statue so this would fit right in. I could do a rumble/frenzy to go with them.

    Any other ideas?

    Hound or Brawn will always get my attention :) 

    G1 Skyfire would also be a nice treat to ever have in some form or another... never been too on board with the Jetfire angle.

    I'd like a death of Prowl, Ironhide, Rathet, and Brawn statue.

    I'll put it next to a sculpture of Ultra Magnus being quartered by the Sweeps!

    Seriously... I see a lot of potential in all of these ideas... even the not so happy!

    I would love to do a "death of" scene but that would be very cost prohibitive. So scenes are probably out of the question.

    Also, just so you guys don't know, these would be "unpainted" and have a slightly rough texture. Something of an early prototype look.

    Here's some examples of the quality:

    G1 Scorponok

    I love everything about him . Base , headmaster , beast and just all around cool. In the same size range as the new Omega Supreme. I'd buy one in a second for sure.

    I would buy just about any character done in the Palisades style, provided they were a full statue--not a bust, or a legless body.

    I could live with the unpainted aspect--plenty of bashers out there I could commission to paint it.

    Well, if we're not going to get any figures of the G1 fembots, then my vote would be for Firestar. An obvious choice would be the Energon Arcee mold, but enough of that already...

    Ratchet would be cool. I kind of like the idea of Seaspray as well for some reason.

    The only statue I would ever buy would be a Prime or Megs, full body of course not busts; too bad you said it isn't possible to make a scene due to the costs, but maybe something simple as Prime and Megatron aiming at each other would definately rock.

    How about the Planet Cybertron or Unicron in Planet mode. The detailing on this could be awesome.
