    Man that's awesome. :)  I'm guessing that's Cutthroat Windblade's fighting against? Cause she did fend off against the Terrorcons in her first miniseries.

    That's got to be expensive with how hefty and huge that statue looks to be.

    Given Azure Sea Studio's MO of taking existing designs and beefing them up/massively exaggerating the detail levels, this is obviously based on Ban's character design (the same one that Flame Toys is adapting).

    Yeah, that's Cutthroat from the WB comic. They fought inside Metroplex.

    Looks amazing but I think its too sexy for a lot of conservative TF fans. She needs more blocky, gender-neutral parts to make people happy?

    Shoutout to Cutthroat for technically getting a statue. I don’t think anyone expected it.

    Yeah, my first thought too was "dragon? Looks like Cutthroat". We'll know for sure when we see the colored version. If he's green and sand and magenta....

    God damn they pump these things out fast. They've already shown off Prime, Sixshot, Starscream, Tarn and Bludgeon unless I'm missing any.

    Another awesome looking statue from this company, I really hope we see more of their stuff. :D  Also ey Cutthroat, good on him for making it in somehow.

    Do they though? We’ve seen a lot of designs without finished product in hand.

    So is Windblade's look going to be complained about this time too?

    How about we not invite the outrage, and see how things go?

    I just sorta noticed that while Azure Sea likes to detail the fuck out of their statues, I'm not entirely convinced they're actually detailing for "realism", or just for the sake of putting details on there. I say that, because those are pretty distinctly hydro-props on her wings there, rather than proper V-TOL turbo-fans...

    Just a question, is that stifling creativity then? If the designers/artist wants to portray a subject based on how they envision the subject, who's to say ut's outrageous or not?

    Unless breaking the line of inviting harm to a specific living thing I say "impress us then"!
