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.

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.

I've watched a couple of reviews on this now, and one thing keeps coming to mind... why would one buy this over MP-10?

One might think it comparing apples and oranges, but with that insanely high an asking price, you've really got to stand out as a G1 Prime, so MP-10 is what I'm going with. It doesn't transform, it doesn't seem particularly better articulated, it doesn't have any worthwhile gimmicks, it's certainly not cheaper, it doesn't even seem to scale better with anything, it goes for a stylisation over accuracy which is just off enough to not be interesting or different in any significant way... correct me if I'm wrong, but it just seems to hold no worthwhile advantages. Even if you wanted a Prime that's REALLY big, MP-01 seems to do that better too.

It looks cool, but compared to other figures and especially at that price I just don't understand why you'd buy this thing unless you're a huge Optimus collector :HEADHURTS:
