Hasbro 3A Transformers Generation 1 Line Discussion Thread

Motto: "There are no impossibilities in the multiverse, just small minds unable to comprehend the possibilities"
Weapon: Star Saber Sword
On this first night of San Diego Comic Con, we bring to you some of the first news to come out of the Con. 3A has partnered with Hasbro to create a whole new Generation 1 line of Transformers statues, and they are starting off with none other than our great leader, Optimus Prime!

Prime is a new take on the design, using his original cartoon design as a skeleton but adding some new design flares to make him eye catching and different. He also comes with many different parts to attach on, such as his wheels in case you like him with the visible wheels, blaster, trusty old Megatron slashing axe, Ion blaster, Matrix and more! Also included is some die cast construction and some LED lights.

This statue will be standing a proud 16 inches tall and already has the planned repaints into the White Prime AKA Ultra Magnus, and he also has a Nemesis Prime redeco in the works! All 3 of these statues will be available in the 3rd quarter of 2016 for pre-order. You can check out the whole article on 3A's Website, and we have mirrored below the sketch phase, gray model phase, and final product for you to check out!

These look pretty nice except the rustic paint apps make it not look very G1. I understand it's meant to give it some new style, but it takes away from the G1 aesthetic in my opinion.

To be a fancy display piece rather than a children's toy?

New Images of Hasbro 3A Transformers Generation 1 Optimus Prime Statue

Postby Va'al » Thu Jan 26, 2017 3:20 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Officially licensed statue creators 3A have released a set of photos on their Facebook page showing off their Generation 1 line Optimus Prime statue, with die-cast, articulation, changeable features, lights and sound and accessories. Check them out mirrored below, along with more info on the figure!

Hasbro and licensee 3A proudly present the first release in the epic Transformers Generation One (TFG1) Premium Scale Collectible Series: the heroic Leader of the Autobots, OPTIMUS PRIME! Taking direct inspiration from the 1980s toy and animated series character model, Ashley Wood and the development team at ThreeA have taken a remixed approach that blends their uniquely stylized aesthetics while retaining Optimus Prime’s original iconic look.

Optimus Prime Classic Edition stands approximately 16” (40.64cm) tall and bears a stylized brawler-esque physique. The Classic Edition features a hefty 30% die-cast body, heavily weathered metallic paint, LED illuminated detailing, and an incredible range of articulation – including opening Matrix Chamber. The tankards and wheel wells are removable for a more streamlined animation style appearance. TFG1 Optimus Prime figure comes complete with interchangeable Energon Axe and his iconic Blaster Rifle.

Weapon: Tissue Demolecularization Gun
From some angles his chest looks like a crushed soda can. Dunno where they got the idea for that weirdly angled breast-section if their motivation was cartoon accuracy... I think the proportions on MP-10 are more aesthetically pleasing than this heap. & for the sake of completeness, I'll add the usual critique, namely: if it doesn't transform, it's not a Transformer.

Doesn't articulation make it not a statue? The chest looks very War For/Fall of Cybertron style, not G1.

I really like the idea of non-transforming, highly show/comic/game accurate, highly detailed, properly accessorized, highly articulate/pose-able figures (for either robot or alt-mode, or both), but I don't see them taking off.
Don't get butthurt when you get called out for expressing closed/small/narrow minded opinions. Educate yourself and form a better opinion.


Yyyeeeeeeeeep
