Thanks to Hobby Link Japan we have a few new little statues for you to check out. HobbyLink Japan has placed these orders up for a pair of small Metacolle Transformers, which are die-cast statues standing about 78 millimeters tall. The 2 figures they are offering are Age of Extinction Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, both cast in die-cast and given a few posable joints. You can check out the orders by following the link above, and you can check out images of the little statues below. They are currently selling for ¥800 (about $7.86 US).

Nice! Bee's face is a little off, but other than that these are very well done.

Fun little collectables but they don't really look the part (particular Bumblebee who seems to have been over-simplified and oddly shaped)

Almost Legends sized I feel. Probably will pass on them myself, but they do look good all at once.

Some new news from the Takara Tomy Metacolle Transformers line - Metal Collection for those paying attention - comes to us from the Tag Hobby website, and features more die-cast figurines of about 5 to 10 cm spanning the Transformers iterations across the years, from G1 to movieverse.

This update brings us back to G1 with Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Megatron, plus the two Autobot and Decepticon faction symbols, due to see release in October 2018, for 1000 Yen each (9 USD at the time of writing). Check out the images below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

We previously reported on some scans for new diecast metal Transformers figures from company Metacolle, and now we finally have some stock imagery! These literal in-hand photos (hehe) show the three G1-inspired characters, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Megatron, as well as die cast Autobot and Decepticon symbols, all with an almost 3D Printed Appearance. They will be available for around $9 each. This is Metacolle's second venture into Transformers Die Cast after their Transformers Last Knight figures last year. Take a look at all the photos below and tell us if you'd be interested in picking these up in the discussion forums below!

They are neat, but I already did the PVC thing like 10 years back; don't really see a reason to get any other miniatures (plus, as mentioned, they look a bit like a rough 3d printed item). Good for those that don't have the PVC line or that prefer metal, but not for me.

They really don't look like metal at all. I'm assuming these are mock-ups? Well I guess even Transformers fans need trotline weights :twisted:

All joking aside, I do kinda dig the look of these. Nine dollars eh... :-?

I presume they will look much better in hand than blown up to fill my computer monitor.

Megatron shows some serious signs of being a low resolution 3D print. I hope the production quality model doesn't have all the stripes across the surface like this photo does...
