In what they called their Sneak Peek of the Day, officially licensed Transformers statue makers Prime 1 Studio have showed off on Instagram the head sculpt for their upcoming Bumblebee figure - this time styled after the new battle mode, complete with battle mask, we've seen in trailers and will see in the Bumblebee Movie come December!

Check out the grey prototype below, with the visor / hive patterned eyes glowing with (sweet baby boy) blue below, and let us know what you think of the Buzz surrounding this new movie and its related merchandise in the Energon Pub discussion boards below!

A double whammy today from Prime 1 Studio, the officially licensed Transformers statue makers, as the Bumblebee Movie hype train has clearly left the Cybertron station - the next sculpt they're teasing on their Facebook page is none other than big bulky bad, possibly triple changing though we have no full confirmation yet, Blitzwing himself, as seen in most of the footage shown in trailers and clips so far from Paramount!

Check out the grey prototype, this time with red optics, below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion boards. Who is buying these statues after all?

So I guess blitzwing is relegated to a seeker and his design matches, and since dropkick and shatter are triple changers, maybe he's their triple changing leader?

Theories aside, I love the head design. It's like the "07 Movie G1 Seeker" head mixed with Kold War Scorpion. :-D

not sure this is the best place to post this, but i have to ask:
why did they make a character who looks dang-near spot-on to g1 starscream, then call him blitzwing? it's not like starscream had a consistent design over the last 10 years, with the movie, prime, RID, and hte cybertron games. why the change?

Shatter is rumored to be the lead Decepticon of this movie.

Thanks to the Prime 1 Studio Instagram page straight from Shanghai Comic Con, we have word that their latest statue has been revealed, and it is none other than the main character from the upcoming movie named after him: Bumblebee!

This new statue features movie Bumblebee in all his VW goodness, and includes his new rounder and more cuddly shape. The statue also comes with his newly redesigned arm blaster, and features a stand made out of what appears to be simulated broken concrete, broken pillars, a spare tire, and underneath, a nice metal stand with an Autobot symbol on it. Of note here is that this statue uses the door wings that the movie character himself does not have, though this is has been a consistent design in almost all of his toys in this form, so there's no real surprise there.

Check out the image of the new Prime 1 statue below, and let us know what you think of this guy in the comments section below!

I'm starting to hope that we might see the door wings in the final CG design. It would make sense that they would be there since the robot mode would look more complete with them.

A statue made to be as much 100% movie accurate as possible.

Still got screwed with the door-wings.

:lol: #-o :(

I wonder if the door wings will be retractable in the film, kinda like the battle mask?

I should have waited to buy a SS Bumblebee until after they push out a second series of them where the door wings fold onto the back.

I wonder if people will continue to be in denial of the doorwings even after the movie comes out and the door wings most likely appear up-right in a bunch of scenes. :lol: :lol:

I think we saw the wings retract a little when he was trying to get through the door to the house, but I might have been seeing that wrong.

He looks better with door wings and they fit his whole Bee thing anyways.

Seibertron's own Nathaniel Prime has directed us towards Prime 1 Studios Facebook who have teased an upcoming Transformers: Bumblebee statue of Optimus Prime. The image originally uploaded to their Facebook page has since been taken down, but we have mirrored it below. Optimus Prime will be joining Prime 1 Studios Blitzwing and Bumblebee in their Bumblebee movie statue range.

With Prime 1 Studio's pricing, this will be a serious investment in anyones Transformers display. How have Prime 1 Studios other renditions of Transformers characters taken (or not) your fancy? Have you bitten or is it more than you can chew? Share your thoughts right here on Seibertron's own Energon Pub!

That Drift is pretty damn awesome.
And it's further proof that only high-end non-transforming figures can truly give the movie designs justice.

MPM Bumblebee and Barricade strongly disagree with you
