Another teaser from Imaginarium Art Facebook page, as they ask potential fans to decide what to include in a new diorama for their licensed Generation 1 line of figures (after Soundwave and Rodimus). It looks like Kup is definitely in, but they are undecided about Arcee and Ultra Magnus - give them a hand after checking out the mockups below.

We need you to decide!! Devastator attacking Autobot City Diorama, please vote 1 or 2, with Arcee or Ultra Magnus?

After being revealed here, it seems the final design for the Autobot City diorama been decided. Via Imaginarium Art's Facebook page we get a look at who was chosen to fight alongside Kup.

It looks like the fans have spoken and chosen Ultra Magnus to fight Devastator among the ruins of Autobot City, take a look at the picture below.

This is such a weird statue, at first it showed Maketoys green giant. Now it's more G1 Devastator but with IDW Magnus and cartoon Kup.

Looks cool thought!

So, by diorama, they do mean statue?

Cool?

Yes, This is a diorama Statue, Due to the size of Devastator, a standalone is too big going according to scale, Imaginarium Art (IA) decide to create a Diorama Scene for this product

Hi I am Danny, Owner of Imaginarium Art (IA), you mentioned we had a direct rip off for this design from DX9? Being a new license for us, we are studying the best, relevant and most popular poses that we can make. As you all may know, our design is carefully picked with IDW's Comic Artist, within our team and our fans.

But mentioning ripping off like a copy and paste is a no no for me. our fan base is not big right now but however, i am sure our fans in IA's Facebook would have told us about this. so far, we have not heard it. I am shocked to see this comment :BANG_HEAD:

However, we welcome all feedbacks on our design, please send your feedback to us and let us know, feedback@imaginarium-art.com.

It has been a while since we last heard from Imaginarium Art and their licensed G1 Rodimus statue, but we now do have an update via their Facebook page, showing some more work in progress on the sculpt design. Check out the mirrored images below!

Some close-up shots of the second character from our Transformers G1 line. Rodimus Prime, the leader of the Autobots who gained the Matrix of Leadership after the death of Optimus Prime.

As earlier postings showed, we got some interesting poses lined up for him. Now, take a closer look at these work in progress images of the definitive Rodimus Prime.

Also from Cybertron Con 2016, and not from Hasbro this time, is some news in the form of statues from Imaginarium Art - which we knew of for Soundwave and Hot Rod, but not for the Ultra Magnus figure seen below! Check out both some more Soundwave with cassettes (..sigh, Ravage..), and the Enforcer himself, courtesy of usual Weibo suspect 52toys.

These statues look great.... but they don't look all that much better than the Masterpiece toys of the same characters, don't transform and will probably cost significantly more.

I just don't see the point unless they can make these statues really affordable.

Soundwave and the cassettes make for a nice display. They look pretty neat

That Soundwave statue is very epic. I like it. Don't mind too much the neutral pose Megatron statue in the background though either.

We saw the unpainted version of the officially licensed Imaginarium Art Soundwave statue, over at CybertronCon, and we now also have a very good look at it with some lovely paint coats applied. Check it all out below, in both video and images, which also show how you can swap out some parts for two different poses!

This may be a dumb questio but I am curious. Why would one get this over the very detailed, hghly poseable and exremely accurate Masterpiece figure?

I was about to ask the same thing. Plus, Rumble is the wrong colour for me. Something else the Masterpiece does right by offering both options.

I've already got a much better, transforming version of this. It's called Masterpiece Soundwave. Aside from being transformable & more articulated, it has the added bonus of remaining unstained by the crappy Bayverse Decepticon symbol, as seen on this overpriced heap.

Even if the statue was lower priced than the MP version, I would have chosen the MP Soundwave over this one in a heartbeat, without any doubt.
Poseable and transformable >:oP

I don't think the proportions are even quite right on this thing. The paint app is all it really has going for it in my opinion.

HA! Because that blue paint is what I like least about it. It looks like the wrong hue of blue.
