    Holy moly. :eek: 

    That looks amazing. I'd love to see more characters done in this style.

    not 100% crazy about it, but this seems to be the best example i've seen of merging G1 designs with a more naturalistic* movie aesthetic.
    if this had been the direction, or even indicative of the direction the live action move designs had took, i would have been pretty happy.

    *naturalistic, as in, looking like it has enough jointing to actually move realistically ~ only thing this design lacks that i see off the bat would be the ability to cross his arms in front of his chest, probab;y would need an IDW-style split windscreen for that to work

    Reminds me of that caption on Pat Lee's TFWiki page.

    1. Design an Optimus Prime statue.
    2. Give him scraplets.
    3. Give him leprosy.

    A little too overcomplicated for a G1 redesign for me.

    It looks great to me. I like it better than Prime 1's G1 Optimus.

    The leg design looks like a G1/movie hybrid.

    I do like the bullet/marker lights---the most accurate-to-a-real-truck since the original G1 toy. (everything for the past 10 years has been copying MP-01's, which are just---utterly unlike any real semi's, I don't know what Takara's sculptors were looking at).

    However---holes in the fuel tanks?!?! That makes zero sense. Maybe they confused them with the muffler guards below the stacks...

    I mean, it's not bad, but these overdetailed G1 character statues are all kinda blending together for me, unless it's a character or style I haven't seen much of before. It's just another G1-ish Optimus statue.

    Gorgeous.

    Hope the little image of Bumblebee in his communicator is a tease at more models in this style. I'd love a video game with these kinds of appearances for the TF's.

    They've already announced Megatron and Bumblebee and that they are planning 8 statues over the next two years (For clarity, that doesn't count this year).

    this guy is EXACTLY what i had in mind when i heard they were making a Live Action transformers movie.. i figured ultra detailed, still-look-like-G1-but-with-detail-improvements...

    Then Michael Bay got a hold of it and it was a huge disapointmnet (to me.. i get some love movieverse).

    But man i sure wish this is the type of character we got in the movies :(

    I just googled it and didn't really find a price. How much are they?
    This looks like it could be a really nice display piece. I pretty much ignore TF statues, but this one really caught my eye. Loving the pose holding his gun straight up...
