Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Singapore based XM Studios, producers of officially licensed statues for the likes of Marvel and Top Cow, are working on a Hasbro figure too: (yet another) Optimus Prime, with a very Cybertronian/Earth hybrid looking design, and a cool display background. No other info at the moment other than the images below, but check them out!

I think Prime's head looks quite evil there but overall that looks great.

Meh.

If this were Superman or Spider-man this would be the most iconic version of those characters. So why is it whenever companies do Transformers statues they have redesign the characters from scratch? I'll never understand that, I find it disrespectful to the source.

I can see that.We all have our favored renditions of our favorite characters. To deviate from that design in many cases mars one's very personal definition of that character. As a staunch G1er I can definetely spot the obvious homage though(much like you and others no doubt.)

In my opinion, the bulky silhouette and greebling in this version represents G1 Optimus Prime as he would appear in a "real world" setting. When I see this version I can easily imagine Optimus transforming in a believable way, lumbering across the terrain with his massive frame, and that blaster of his charging up before releasing a deafening plasma blast. I especially appreciate how his aesthetics harken back to the bulkiness(blockiness?) of good ol' G1 designs.

And no I won't be getting him. :lol: (Sideshow Collectibles Skeletor is on the way and serves as this years overpriced collectible)

He feels more like a mech suit or something to me. It does look cool though! I like the lower legs.

perhaps its to give the statue so much detail that you could literally look at it for hours or have it be the center of a discussion that wows your friends when they see it :-?

Not really seeing the whole "disrespect" angle here. Seems a bit over the top with regards to your describing the intentions of the creators, IMO. Obviously, they are hoping to make a profit with their rendition, as opposed to pissing people off en mass and wasting time and resources to not even break even...
