They have posted a slew of other images on their Facebook page as well. They have multiple images of their assemply line for the Rodimus Prime statue (a finished sample can be seen here), images showing their 3d printing development for Devastator parts, and images of a yet to be assembled Nemesis Prime.
Enjoy all these images below!

First up are a few renders of the work-in-progress Ironhide statue. A head-and-shoulders shot released on January 11th, followed by angled shots of the full (not yet posed) statue on the 23rd, show Ironhide to be as heavily detailed as Imaginarium's other works, though the renders are still currently in grayscale. It also appears the red veteran will be wielding a few heavy armaments to boot.
On the 16th, 18th, 22nd and 29th, in-person size comparison images were released featuring their upcoming Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus, Rodimus Prime and Nemesis Prime statues next to actual humans to demonstrate their size (yes, they're big).
A new work-in-progress render of their Jazz statue, previously revealed back in November 2017, rocked up on January the 26th. It looks to have been slightly simplified since its initial renders, boasting perhaps a little less mechanical detailing than what we'd seen before (Imaginarium is no stranger to tweaking their designs as they work on them after all).
A new, smaller Optimus Prime statue was shown off on the 30th, which also seemed to indicate the debut of a new sub-line of sorts: The Legacy of Cybertron. Featuring an entirely different pose from their larger Optimus Prime statue and even from the heavily-featured Nemesis Prime, it would appear that Imaginarium certainly aren't lazy even when working on multiple statues of the same character.
Finally, it seems the previously-teased Quintesson statue is also progressing, with further teases featuring art of the iconic "Judgement" and "War" faces released over the past forty-eight hours or so. Presumably the trend will continue over the next few days as well, with images of the remaining three "Wrath", "Wisdom" and "Death" faces still to come.
While you digest all of that information, take a look at all of the images in question below, or over on Imaginarium's Facebook page. Once you've done that, why not share and discuss any thoughts you have, over in the Energon Pub Forums - we'd love to hear them. And of course, keep an eye out for any more Transformers news coming your way on Seibertron.com - same (or different) 'bot time, same 'bot channel!

If those people actually exist. Theres one guy on TFW who claims he buys them, but he doesnt want to discuss the culture of the elite statue collecting alumni. Its probably easier to gain access to a Masonic lounge.

Very much this. I mean, I think? that the statues have their actual heights listed in inches somewhere, but I don't know for sure - and even so, humans are like one of the most widely-variable measuring sticks you could possibly use for a comparison image. I think X is probably right here, that these models are in the photos to sell the statues, not as providers of any kind of reasonable size-comparison information.

The insulting version of the gesture is often compared to the offensive gesture known as "the finger". The "two-fingered salute" (also "the forks" in Australia) is commonly performed by flicking the V upwards from wrist or elbow. The V sign, when the palm is facing toward the person giving the sign, has long been an insulting gesture in England, and later in the rest of the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, India, Pakistan and New Zealand. It is frequently used to signify defiance (especially to authority), contempt, or derision.

If ONLY they had done this with a giant Dinobot and had a sign for it's name, proudly displayed as "Slag".
I would have it made as a Tshirt.

Highly detailed statues like these are more fitting for the 1:1 accurate Movie bots, whose designs are clearly IMPOSSIBLE to transform. Sure, we now get MPMs, but there are still some sacrefices done for transformation. An articulated statue is where it's at for the Baybots. Being rich, I'd buy some but I don't have 2000$ spare bonuses floating around like leaves in autumn unfortunately.
