Some of the Cybertron designs were really good and other ones like Soundwave just came out weird. I think it's mostly the head and the pelvis that are doing it. His head looks big and flat and they should have gotten rid of the red arrows.

I always thought that Soundwave in this film looked like a costume. Because they did so well with it, I can't tell. Ravage looks a lot better than before. :KREMZEEK:

Prime 1 Studio Celebrates 8 Years in Business with Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime Statue

Postby D-Maximal_Primal » Wed Jun 03, 2020 10:30 pm

Motto: "There are no impossibilities in the multiverse, just small minds unable to comprehend the possibilities"
Weapon: Armor Axe
Prime 1 Studios has given us some fantastic live action figures over the years, with highly detailed and very large statues representing our favorite on-screen heroes covering a wide range of characters from the Movie-verse. And to celebrate 8 years of producing these statues, they have revealed their newest offering for all to see: Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime!

Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime is a statue of giant proportions. Among his impressive and imposing presence is the fact that he stands 29 inches tall, so right up there with the Haslab Unicron in terms of size. And he certainly contains more detail and a truly impressive paint job. He also features a plethora of display options, which include different hands, arms, weapons, and more so you can customize him and up and make him look downright awesome.

While we don't have a release date or a price yet (though the statue will be expensive as past ones have been), we do have a bunch of nice images for the upcoming statue for you. We will share some below, and you can follow the above link to view the full gallery.

Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Man, that's super cool. I like that it can replicate the pose from the statue at Transformers: The Ride (even down to the upside-down sword), and I don't think I ever realized that there were blue panels on the Ion blasters.

It's way too expensive, but they are at least really cool to look at (and great reference for painting).

Funny, because the Universal studios ride is the only place I've ever seen these guys in real life. They are awesome, but too much for me.

They are extremely cool, but far too costly unless you have a lot of money or only collect things like this.

It is imposing and fantastic though, they always make great statues!

Browsing Facebook I found these images of what appears to be Dinobot for the line "Prime 1 Studio", I have nothing confirmed, even since the images from which they came out do not give information, we hope results.

They can see the Megatron and Optimus Primal heads, but the head of Dinobot is unknown, could it be that the same company is planning to make a statue of it too?, a render 3D of the Maximal was also shown.

Prime 1 Studio Phase 1 Showcase Video Features AOE Gimlock, Movie Blackout and Scorponok

Postby william-james88 » Mon Dec 07, 2020 10:31 pm

Motto: "'till All Are One"
With the lack of conventions this year, Prime 1 Studios made a really cool video to showcase all their upcoming statues. They make high end Transformers statues, usually movie themed, and were sure to include them as part of the presentation. They showed Age of Extinction Grimlock, Movie 1 Blackout and his companion Scorponok. These statues are MASSIVE. Just look at that screenshot of Blackout below. Most of these will be up for preorder very soon. We also have the video for you below, the Transformers begin at the 35 minute mark.

Maybe there are some movie stars who are fans.

Yup, it adheres to the main models of commerce. These are expensive, but they definitely give a lot more for people who find value/prestige in owning these. Basically you are paying more to get a lot more and getting something that few others have.

Well, that's basically what I already have. But I ran out of space ages ago and my locker is gradually filling up.

My main point with these statues was not really the price. But WHERE in the freaking hell can the casual collector display such a MONSTER? :shock:
And it's not something you can just display on the floor like a Titan.

I concur: if figurines of this kind continue to be made, then there's probably a market. (Alternative hypothesis: the artists never sell anything, but have found a continuing supply of gullible investors.) Whether the figures are effectively displayed is a separate question.

To be appreciated, any kind of high-detail objet d'art, 2D or 3D, needs to be surrounded by uncluttered negative space. (You can crowd a collection in a glass display case, and plenty of people do, but can you honestly say the individual figures look good that way?) That's easy with something the size of a refrigerator magnet or LEGO minifig, but once the pieces grow to this scale, you can either (a) fill a dedicated gallery with multiple pieces, (b1) put a single piece in a room shared by other purposes, or (b2) rotate the collection. That's what professional museums do -- public galleries display only a fraction of the collection at any one time. (An oil painting has conservation concerns that a plastic figure doesn't, but still...)

Ever been to a shopping mall in Las Vegas? There are gallery-stores full of oversized paintings, movie-prop replicas and fantasy garden statuary. The same question-pair "who's buying this / where do they put it?" arises. And then you get to the tier of Jay Leno's collection of classic cars.
