Thanks to the official Imaginarium Art page for their officially licensed Transformers statues, we have a final pre-order listing for their G1 esque Jazz figure, with final colours, look, and price ready for anyone willing to buy the funky dude.

Jazz is Optimus Prime's right-hand man. Unlike Prowl, Prime's military strategist, Jazz responds well to change and improvisation. Whatever surprises the Decepticons spring, Jazz can deal with it. His position as Special Operations head calls for all the skills he possesses, yet he still has time to add some style to everything he does. Jazz's upbeat and outgoing personality make him one of the most popular Autobots among the Ark's crew.
An admirer of Earth music of every kind, Jazz loves culture. More than most other Autobots, he has his finger on the pulse of Earth trends and lingo, effortlessly incorporating human slang into his vocabulary. Chances are, Jazz could tell you the status of almost any reality television show and each week's Top 40 list.

Obviously, the only statues that truly make sense to collect, especially if they are articulated "statues" (meaning ultra-deluxe action figures) are BAYVERSE Movie bots. To have genuine 100% screen accuracy and level of details, NONE of those designs can transform while still following the laws of our Universe. So for the ultimate Movies fan, Movie statues are the crown jewels of any Movie bots display.


I suppose that is true with some movie designs. Although I believe anything is possible in the world of toy engineering without mass shifting. I wouldnt be suprised if the could even create a proper ROTF Overload that transforms into the robot from the concept art:

With that being said let it be known, I dont hate all statues. I just hate Transformers statues. I do own a $140 statue of my favorite mortal kombat character, Jade. But she isnt a transformer. All she has to do is stand there and look sexy. But I wouldnt have paid $400 or $1500 for her. Thats just ludacris snob yuppie s**t.

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]

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.

I have to admit this one I might consider, at least until I see the price.

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... :-?"
:lol:

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.

Well hot diggity damn. Looks good, and I'm not going to lie, she's a stunner. I'm not in the market for a big expensive statue, but if I were...

However, the price may stop my hand to reach my wallet.
