    I really dig the idea of producing alt modes alongside the Bot statues. I wish Threezero did that. I'd love to have some alt modes displayed next to my Threezero figures.

    That detailing looks so cool. Maybe one day we will get an mp scale transforming version in that style.

    Damn that's a nice looking Hot Rod (from what can be seen) I'd love if a mainline HR or even entire line was styled like that.

    NGL, I prefer magenta-ish Hot Rods... not sure I would bite on a maroon figure.

    Man, today was the day for half-revealed Rodimii (Rodimuses?), wasn't it?

    In all seriousness, this is absolutely not my area, but it looks pretty cool. Not something I would or could ever pick up, but definitely cool nonetheless.

    Lots of humour carrying over from the Kingdom Rodimus thread, I see. :lol 

    This really is the year of Hot Rod, what with the possibly-definitive SS86 and Kingdom figures, and now this.

    Also, I really hope someone makes transformable versions of these XM statue designs eventually. Just look at that alt mode! It looks like it was already designed to transform!

    Why does this need to cost $600? I could just buy a cinder block which weighs just as much, if not more, for cheaper.

    I think this companies stuff looks great. Hope this doesn’t turn into a, “i like turtles” thread.

    Does anyone else think that this looks like an Ultraman transformation device or is that just me?

    So I'm really curious about who actually buys these? Where do they live in your homes? Is there just a whole floor for Transformers statues? Has anyone here bought any of the previous statues?
