Last seen on display at STGCC in September last year, we have a listing for XM Studios' licensed Premium Collectibles Optimus Prime statue on their own website. This provides us with not only much higher-quality images of the product, but an extensive description of the item as well!

The 1:10-scale porcelain statue will feature a base, two different right arms, a replaceable energon axe for the left hand and an optional rocket-pack for display options, as well as an openable chest with (non-removable) light-up Matrix and light-up eyes. As an extra, it even comes with a smaller companion statue depicting Prime's classic cab mode!

The statue is priced at $2,199 SGD retail price, or $1,979 SGD "prestige price" (about $1700 and $1500 USD respectively) or an $800 SGD deposit can be made to secure one - which is important, since the run will be made-to-order. Shipping is unavailable to North America, Europe or the UK, but ranges between $300-620 SGD for South East Asia, East Asia and Australia.

Check below for a selection of images from the listing, and click here for even more pictures, the full description and to possibly order one if it catches your fancy! Share your thoughts in the Energon Pub Forums, and don't forget to stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more Transformers news!

XM Studios is excited to present our first Transformers Premium Collectibles series statue,Optimus Prime! The noble leader of the Autobots is immortalized in amazingly detailed 1:10 scale cold-cast porcelain. Each painstakingly handcrafted statue is individually hand-painted with the famous XM quality finish. Crafted from scratch, every nut, bolt and wire is lovingly designed and sculpted ground up by a team in mad love with the Transformers G1 era of cartoons. Inspired by one of our childhood favorite 80s cartoon, we took the G1's iconic form design and XMized them with modern details, to better fit in today's expectations of sophisticated robotry designs. We have spared no effort and designing these original pieces took our core team almost 2 years, resulting in an amazing balance of retro beauty with a sleek modern details. And of course, how can we leave out XM's love of switch out extras? This statue comes with Energon Axe, Leadership Matrix and intricately detailed Cybertron Base and we've even thrown in the Rocket Booster Backpack to give Optimus the added firepower against the Decepticons. This is not all - what's a transformer without it's alternate mode? Yes, this statue comes with a companion statue, the iconic Freightliner FL86 cab over semi truck so collectors can enjoy the beauty of both bot and alternate mode at the same time! Prime would be proud!

I saw the truck thing and I was like "HOLY CRAP that thing transforms. How on earth is that possible"

Then I looked closer and saw that is was just a side thing. I was so sad

It's beautiful... :APPLAUSE:

Too bad likely no one here is going to buy it though, unless you're brave enough to drop $2k on a statue... I can barely afford a Masterpiece figure :-(

So this one has jet packs and a chromed out man booty. I really wish these stupid statues would be gone already.

I agree with you completely. I really like the look of these statues, but I would rather take a posable action figure, or better yet, a TRANSFORMABLE posable figure to mess around with than a statue. Thank you for the effort XM Studios, but I’ll pass >:oP

From the same Weibo user 爆料人小明, we also have some images of the XM Studios Generation 1 - as in their own take on the Generation 1 characters - collectible statues for Megatron, Optimus Prime and Starscream, though the first is the most prominent as the last revealed. The images mirrored below are best viewed with an accompaniment of the video from Radd Titan, who was also present at the same event, the Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention 2018.

Featured in both are the alternative right arm, and a hand with an Energon mace, plus a general look at various angles and details of the statue. Take a look below, and let us know what you think!

That very "organic" looking Megatron look like Beast Wars Megatron doing a cosplay of his G1 ancestor. Can't decide if it's good or bad.

I think I'd be able to overlook the face if he didn't have such squinty eyes. There's a weird uncanny valley thing going on with the face without big glowing eyes.

I don’t know, I’m gonna go with I actually like this thing. I remember in 1990 Marvel Comics issue #70 when Megatron and Ratchet returned as this merged zombie thing and can remember really appreciating the humanoid, organic stylized design by Andrew Wildman. This kind of reminds me of that. Not sure what the price points on these particular ones are, but if it’s anywhere near what Sideshow and Prime 1 are asking and they’re in your budget then you have options. You could spring for this humanoidish iteration or the more traditional interpretation offered by the other companies. I say the more options for us fans and collectors the better. It seems like even Harry Potter’s got us beat on merchandising and Transformers has about a 14 year headstart on that Wizard. :BOT:

This is how Megatron should have looked in the live action movies. I do hope someone makes a genuine Transformers movie some day, with characters which actually look G1 like this. Designs like this piss all over the Bayformers.

It all depend on tastes, as usual. Such a design for the live action movies could gave worked, but I'd bet my left AND right nut that "fans" would still have complained as much anyway.

Beside, be thankful for the Bayverse. It made the designers think outside the box and create toys with thecniques that were revolutionary. Not counting all the fans it brought. New ones and old ones that came back such as myself.

I never expected to see the day where Spike in an Exo Suit could look this cool. But XM Studios proved me wrong with this brand new statue of Bumblebee and Spike. This is of course a reference to their partnership in the 86 film but with a lot of more realistic detail. This statue also comes with a Beetle car (model) and the robot eyes light up. You can even switch out with a visor. This statue is made of porcelain. We do not know the price but pre-orders will be up November 6th. Below you will see images we found the site Speculative Fiction. This is said to be in the 1/10th scale.

Not to be that guy, but unless Ryan has changed his views, I dont think having "badass" in the news title is a good choice.

Bee's default face look derpy as hell. Plus that car is superfluous. However, remove the car and add that vizor face, and BAM! You get one amazing and bad-ass display piece!

I'm not one for statues or a fan of G1 Bumblebee and Spike but it does look great. I think not giving Spike his usual David Hasselhoff hairstyle made him look more badass.

I usually prefer the visor face anyway, but in this case it really clinches the "bad-ass"-ness of the scene. It makes for a truly menacing, robotic look, rather than a "hey, I wanted the last Kit Kat!"-type of look.
