    Prime looks quite nice, but to me bumblebee looks like he's full of bubble bath:lol 
    That's the best looking official spike I've seen.

    These are great! Would love the 84 ark cast in this format. Hopefully it won't be too hard to acquire? Can't quite gauge how large they are either

    Are these statues? They remind of me of Takara's Mega PVC assortment.

    These look better and better! Loving the recent trend of Giant Sized Vinyl!

    Price-pending, these are some of the most appealing non-transforming Transformers I've seen yet!

    These are my.jam! They have cartoon version PROTOTYPES of Megatron, Starscream, Thundercracker & Skywarp, Prime & bee of course, plus some more Autobots in the pipeline like Prowl, Blue steak, Smokescreen, Grapple, & Mirage. And I think a lazerbeak as well I heard

    I'm actually in touch with Soap Studios about these so I will definitely keep fans posted & I hope we can get.as many fans interested in these Sofubi vinyl figures because the more ppl interested the better our chance of getting these out to retail. Or at least being able to get them easily.

    Optimus Prime is I believe 9.8 inches. Bmblebee is to scale of prime. They are fully vinyl figures made of good vinyl plastics
    Higher quality polyethylene vinyl I'm pretty sure. They have 8-10 points of articulation. 8 being OPTIMUS PRIME. Neck/Shoulders/Wrists/Waist/& hip swivel slash boot cut ;)

    I would collect these. I'm a big fan of the G1 cartoon, so if they're a decent price, I'm in.

    Idk about a "decent" price but heres hoping. I am guessing.since they.are a limited run probably.60-100 us dollars for Optimus & Megatron. 45-65 for Bumblebee with.Spike?

    Here's some pics of prototypes of Soup Studios Sofubi Art series Megatron and Starscream. Enjoy!

    Not a fan huh? But look at the final photos I think it was the way it came out on pic because OPTIMUS in prototype looks the same but in final he looks quite charming

    These look good. I'll pick them up but I'll feel robbed if they don't go deep into the cast.

    They plan to. Look back to my earlier post to see what.characters the have in mind. Add grapple to that if I didn't already.

    I know that's so cool mixed with modern 3D technology these are sure to look great!

    Vinyl isn't cheap.

    I wouldn't buy them though.
