We reported a while back on company Pop Culture Shock acquiring the Transformers license from Hasbro, to produce small and large scale collectible figures of its various brands - including Transformers, of course! According to representatives from Pop Culture Shock directly, interacting with fans on StatueForum.com, we have some extra news about the look of these new lines: G1 cartoon accurate, both large and small, after talking to/sourcing opinions from Transformers fansites (apparently). You can read more in the thread here, and join our discussion in the Energon Pub below!

“We will be not only doing small scale transformers, but we will now also do large scale transformers. G1 cartoon baby! Coming this year as well.”

How small? Potential for Heroclix customs?

I'd rather see other universes being done than just G1 yet again.

From word of Seibertronian Cyberpath we have learned from Emiliano Santalucia, an artist for Pop Culture Shock Collectibles that we have gotten our first look at Transformers G1 Optimus Prime statue on the artist's page.

Another preview time!

As said this is the small scale statue about 10" to 12" that will be produced. If you want to learn more, give the artist a follow on Facebook, otherwise stay connected to Seibertron here as we will post further developments.

Crushed-up 3-step changers, plus any 2 of your most hated and despised TF toy lines (for an additional 70 US Dollars).

It's been a little while since we last heard anything about the new Pop Culture Shock! Transformers licensed figures (along with the other Hasbro properties that are receiving the figure treatment, of course), but thanks to one of the artists behind the project - veteran Emiliano Santalucia on his Facebook page - we now have a look at the torso of the Optimus Prime toy that will eventually make it to retail!

Isn't this coming out great? ;)

Nearly four months after it was first previewed and a couple weeks after we got a look at the torso, we have our first full look at the licensed Optimus Prime statue from Pop Culture Shock! This image comes to us via their Instagram page.

The statue is heavily Generation One-based in design, and sports a cel-shaded deco reminiscent of the cartoon (or the similarly-G1-inspired Transformers: Devastation game). Check below for images, and remember to share your thoughts in the Energon Pub Forums! Does this statue look good to you? Is the Sunbow-cartoon style more appealing than the updated aesthetic of other statue releases? We want to know what you think!

As much as G1 Prime or the G1 cartoon don't appeal to me these days I do like the cell shaded style very much (and loved Transformers: Devastation) and so that makes this a nice statue in my opinion.

I want to know its price point and if there will be a Starscream :P

I think that looks best as a 2D image. I prefer real shadows and lighting on my toys if that makes sense.
