    Mostly Armada. Energon and Cybertron would be cool too. I care almost nothing about the G1 cartoon, but if they did some toy accurate statues I might be interested .

    I just don't think the expendable income is there yet for people who grew up with those cartoons. We'll likely see statues on those designs in the next 5-10 years. That said though, I would have thought the BW statues to sell well but they fell flat for some reason.

    Nice G1 Cartoon avatar :p :cool: 

    You mean G1 toy accurate statues? Like Ironhide without a head or Megatron with a crotch trigger?

    Another cool idea could be to have a figure statue come with their vehicle mode next to them on the base. It would be an interesting way to show what each statue transforms into. (since statues can't really transform.)

    If they are going to do a movie statue, I think the only ones I would be interested in would be devastator or ROTF demolisher.

    They should do a Sixshot statue where he’s striking some sort of badass pose, and his various alt modes are surrounding him.
    Or a statue with Punch and Counterpunch at the same time. You look at it from one angle and it’s Punch, then you turn it around and it’s Counterpunch


    ..okay maybe that’s not actually a good idea

    Like I said, almost nothing. Love the animation errors and stuff like that. And yes, those things exact.

    They should probably fix their customer service problems first. And maybe work to expedite their items in a timely matter, not ship them 2 years later. Oh and I don\'t think it\'s too much to ask that the production pieces actually look like the prototypes?

    My vote goes for Starscream, of course (large and small versions!)
    A classic G1 collection cannot be complete without him :D 

    (OK, being as how this is a Wishlist, I might as well add that I'd **LOVE** to have statues in both, robot and vehicle mode!)
    I'm still dreaming about a large-scale G1-style tetrajet statue for my collection...:rolleyes:

    Starscreem sounds good but this time let’s do it without the crown and cape unless it’s just a removable add on

    Not to steal PCS thunder, however XM Studios includes an alt mode statue to pair with the robot statue. So I guess PCS could do it, however it might push the price up.

    Um... that's is an excellent idea!

    Have them back to back so you can choose which one is facing you.

    Fair enough. I doubt I could get on board with G1 toy accurate statues. One of the joys of a statue is the way you can pose them in a dynamic way. I think the way the G1 figures were designed it'd be hard to realistically pose most of them other than the way they stand there as a figure. I could picture someone like Jazz looking pretty good however even the original packaging art struggled with some of those designs.

    OH BOY, MORE STATUES!1one

    (the only remotely interesting concept would be mimmicking the classic box art and even then not at the prices they'd charge for it)

    From PCS:
    "Early WIP of Starscream. Blue lines are the actual control art from the original cartoon series. This will be the first large scale transformer. Be ready."

    When the model is finished it will be posed, so don't worry about the statue standing like that.
