I can't see the point in paying that much for a statue of a fighting game character you can't pose into any other moves or stances than what she's already stuck in but it's your choice and your money. Transformers statues have their fans too. If someone wants an extremely detailed but non-posable represenation of G1 Jazz on their shelf to gaze and admire that's up to them. Some folk just want to have a great looking version of their fave character without the need for it to be a mostly plastic toy that may sacrifice aesthetic qualities for function.

Speaking of human based statues, the advantage is you don't have to deal with ugly joints and such.

In conclusion, each things have their good and bad points. The final say being dictated by tastes, interests, and budjet.

A lot of well made figures cleverly hide joints as best they can though and I'd take a noticable movable joint over a completly overpriced static non-posable version of a character any day but that's my choice. I like paying less for an item that can do much, much more and other folk like paying silly monies for an unposable piece of 'art'. :P [/quote]

Full Colour Image of Imaginarium Art Transformers Arcee Statue

Postby Va'al » Wed May 23, 2018 1:46 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Directly from the Facebook page of the officially licensed statue and replica makers Imaginarium Art, we have a full colour shot of their latest project in the Transformers statue line: G1 esque pink warrior, Arcee!

Posing with both gun and sword - taking on attributes from her first incarnation and some Animated and IDW slants in there, much like the Generations transforming toy - you can see her in a suggested rendition: the page talks about potentially removing some lines from her face, as it's still under licensor (Hasbro) consideration for now. You can check out the image below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards.

Doesn't look like she could transform (I know it's a statue and thus cannot anyways) but looks like she could be a woman wearing a tight fitting suit than a Transformer. I mean, it's nice I guess but they've definitely changed the humanoid/transforming-robot ratio towards the former.

The sculpting itself is nice but the design is so phoned in. She doesn't look like a Cybertronian, she isn't painted like Arcee, the "underboob" and low-cut "panties" just look ridiculous since she doesn't have boobs or genitals under there, that face is inconsistent with a battle-ready pose and the pose itself is silly anyway. To say nothing of the question of why she looks like a human dressed as some approximation of a Transformer when the other statues in this line look like the Transformers they're supposed to represent, thus mismatching them.

And, honestly? If you want to make a sexy lady statue, make a sexy lady statue. If you want to make a sexualized robot statue, make a statue that looks like a sexualized freaking robot. Sexualizing a robot by redesigning her to look like a sexy lady is the way of cowards.

Yikes! She's less robot, and more girl in a robot suit.

I imagine a few cosplayers might look at that and go "Hmmmm... :-?"

main complaints i see is that she doesn't look like she could be a transformer, yet that's pretty much been true for her design since 1986.... so..... look back at the 1986 movie and ask yourself "does that look like it could transform?" if your answer is no, then shut up and deal with the statue.

The thing she's posed on makes her look like she's doing a skateboard trick while aiming her guns. Almost makes me think of Treasure Planet and the solar surfboard.

Wow, I might actually get a non transforming Transformer in the near future. This Arcee statue looks amazing! I really love it.

Sure it's not as good cybertronian/transformable but we already have stuff like that. This is more like a hybrid cosplayer. I really like this one.

Nah, she's clearly "wearing" a sports bra that matches her pink panties.
