    That seems pretty high. For 30 Grand I at least want it life-sized.

    That thing is taller than I am.

    30k still seems a bit much for steel and plastic. Granted, it's solid steel and a high-quality job (at least from what I can see) but still.

    If someone had 30 big ones to blow and was determined to spend it on "transformers" products; why would they spend it on a statue that looks like a comic book shop prop :wtf: 

    What would someone accomplish by owning one of these? I'm genuinely curious. Do they think it will impress the ladies? "Hey baby cakes, wanna come back to my place so I can show you my 9ft fiberglass Optimus Prime?" Do they think it will be a good investment? "In twenty years, someone will pay me 60 Gs for this!" Or is it just the comforting feeling of knowing that if someone burglarizes your house, the first thing the prospective criminal will see is the leader of the Autobots pointing a menacing finger in his face.

    I may never know.

    Only the coolest kids on the block can get one of these. With THIS giant paperweight in your house, ain't no one gonna question your loyalty to the Autobots. And obviously NO woman can resist a man with a giant 60 kilogram replica of an 80's toy.

    It won't blend and it wont' Transform, either...

    -- if I could blow $30k that easy, you know I'd drop it on this, but not if it can't Transform!

    My dream? This thing walks around behind me going "Autobots - TRANSFORM AND ROLL OUT!"

    But the Hasbro version will have the metal replaced with plastic, have fewer paint apps and come in a shittier box!

    Wow, I don't think I could spend that much on a Statue that is just insane. However I've spent more on my biggest TF so there that.

    Only way this thing is worth $30 grand is if Peter Cullen himself was included as a special prize hidden inside.
