    These statues aren't for me, but I appreciate the craftsmanship and artistry.

    What's "museum scale"? Is it the same size as a fossilised dinosaur or mammoth?

    They put a lot of work into making this look like a loosely drawn animation cell... which I think is awesome.

    If they don't sell out at sideshow before they release I might bite.

    $800 sheesh who buys these things ?
    And then theres the company name...Pop Culture shock....does anyone remember when the term "pop culture" was only used to describe boy bands and MTV reality shows ? Now a days everything from a toy robot to a chicken sandwich is considered pop culture. I must be getting old lol...

    Too many pizza bagels. Everyone knows Optimus' only weakness is his love for pizza bagels.

    It's from the 1950s, so no.

    Well I guess it could also be somewhat of a regional thing. (before internet of course) I can only speak on where Im from (Miami) but ive never heard the term "pop culture" used to describe anything sci-fi until milenials started becoming relevant in society. Just saying...

    I first read this as 25' (feet) and like,yeah, I can see why this is "museum" scale being close to real size.

    Then saw the extra ' and realize it's 25". So disappointed.
