Fellow Seibertron Sunstar has written up a review on her website for her latest addition to her Starsceam shrine, the Coronation Starscream Statue from Imaginarium Art. We rarely get the sense of scale of these figures, so seeing Sunstar unload the boxes and add it to his display area will give you a sense of how massive it is. She also took images of it with other Starscream toys, like the Masterpiece, to give us a good idea of scale.

Below are exerpts of her review along with several images she took. Many of us will never own this statue, but at least now we can get some great feedback of someone who has taken this plunge and indulge our eyes on the details!

This will be the single-most expensive purchase I have done for my collection outside of furniture – and I have no regrets. I'm going to cover some of my experience with this particular statue, there were some admittedly frustrating points in the progress of the day, but all in all its an outstanding figure

Statue Set Up
Some assembly required...

The statue came with a beautiful instruction booklet, with full colour photos, clearly numbered and displayed in both complete and exploded form. Each part had a rare earth magnet in the joint that enabled it to snap together securely - this was amazing.

The set-up of the statue chugged along pretty nicely. As I stated earlier, each part was wrapped neatly and nestled away with loving care. My spouse helped by unwrapping each part, we started with the rockets to build up the base, and placed the paper and bags back in their original location. This kept the assembly clean and fairly quick. All was trucking along nicely until the right leg...

The right leg of doom... Resin, which this statue is made of, when removed from the mould sometimes may get a bit out of shape. This was a problem for the right leg and the left arm - to a lesser degree with the left arm. Some damage was caused to the joint while I attempted to remedy this problem. Instead of sharp 90° angles in the leg, it was rounded. I had to take a file and try to round off some edge on the leg joint at the body. Unfortunately I did some damage to the inside of the joint, however that is inside so it won't notice. The fact I had to file the statue to get the leg to fit, was a downer. It is fortunate I have tools at my disposal and I am quite acquainted with modifying things (such as war hammer) that I wasn't phased in the least. After a good amount of time filing, I had it fitting.

Another downer was a chip in the resin near this particular joint. We noticed it before I made my modification and after checking the bags and the area I was working with, we decided that this must have occurred prior to packaging. A little silver paint should fix it up, and its not that noticeable, however it is irritating all the same.

Another small problem we encountered, which is easily fixed, however a bit worrisome due to the fact resin is absolutely brittle and will shatter, is a rare earth magnet popped out of the left wrist. This was fixed with a small dab of Gel super glue.

Once these areas of trouble were addressed and rectified, the statue went together like bacon and eggs.

I have to say that as we went along that statue became heavier and heavier and I was grateful for my spouse's help as I needed a break from holding it. It has the size and the weight of a baby (a much smaller head though) The paint and feel of the figure is beautiful. Great details and a lovely addition to any collection, problems aside.

Once it was all set we gently moved the display into the corner of the room where it just looks amazing.

Statue: A++
Statue Problems: C (There should be no need for those quality issues for something with this price point.
Helpful Spouse: A++

I would rate this figure at about an A to A+ But I had problems and I may be an exception rather than the rule.

From one huge Starscream fan to another, nice collection. Im definitely not a statue guy, but I think it works well in a memorabilia collection of one particular character.

I will add this note here, although I had the money mostly saved up by the time I had ordered it, I still asked my other half if he'd object. I am glad I have such a good husband and friend who will allow me to indulge in my collecting. Side note, he has basically zero interest in the transformers - but he finds them kinda fun.

And its virtually the centrepiece of my collection. It is exactly how I imagined it to look there and, the table that I bought was perfect. It even had a glass top so it made the edition visible from the underside.

That's really cool to have a look at, thanks for sharing! Nice that they packed in the features that they did, makes it go beyond just being in the same state all the time.

Holy crap, over 600$US in shipping fees alone... and the thing is HUGE! :shock:

I'm a Starscream fanboy as well, but having that kind of money to burn, I'd go for the original G1 Sky Shadow or Metalhawk. Still, anyone who can afford one of these statues, fees and all, and don't regret anything is perfectly fine in my book.

Speaking of being a Screamers fan, anyone like me who'd want the original Takara MP-03 "greenscream"? I want it but gosh, the price it go for....

I don't exactly have money to burn, took me most of a year to save that money. And I have to restart with saving again. And what is the greenscream going for these days?

You must be as "rich" as me then. If I'd want to, I'd get such a statue myself... For the price of not buying any Transformers or anime figures for at least 6 months! :lol:

As for "Greenscream", who always come at the minimum complete with box:

Ebay: Ignoring the dreamers, around 130 to 150$US plus shipping and taxes.

Mandrake: Only one at 25000Y plus taxes and shipping.

So I may be getting one from the good ol' Bay in a few months, once all my current preorders are finally paid for annd shipped. For a time no Greenscreams were under 300$US. Guess the overabundance of "better" MP Starscreams flooding the market (MP-11, 3Ps and KOs)have lowered the original's value... which make me VERY glad! :-?

Since I only collect Starscream, saving for them isn't to difficult. We also make Beer, Wine and have a tiny salt water aquarium. (that aside, we don't own a car, we ride bicycles (all year)- we currently rent, so we have areas where we save. Mum has a car, which we borrow from time to time.

That Greenscream is quite handsome, although his initial colour scheme was disappointing, the releases afterwards, were delightful - still I wouldn't trade him in. I wouldn't trade in any of my 255 screams :P

Do you have Greenscream? If I ever get one, I'll be sure to also have the sticker sheet with all those random jet labels and I'll go crazy! :lol:

Oh, and to get back to the statues, got this one from Prime One Studios?



Initially, I wasn't a fan of the movie design for Screamers, but after owning and playing with the HFTD leader, I fell in love.

I considered it, but at the time, I did not have the money. I figured there would be a G1 based figure in the future and saved for it. There is another statue coming down the pipes but I cannot get it due to lack of space. Maybe one day, when I have the space, I can find someone willing to sell theirs to me.

wow, that is an Epic purchase. It looks great in your collection and on it's own. Getting a glass table so you can see the number underneath is a great Idea as well.

thank you so much for sharing it and your experience with it. If they ever make a statue like this of Jazz, I'm going to be in a bit of bother.

Via the official Facebook page for Imaginarium Art, we have a final render but a full render at that, of their Transformers G1-esque Jazz in his full groovy posed glory. Posing on a cyber looking base, with his blaster in hand, shoulder mounted cannon, full visor and definitely not a Martini blanked out logo, you can check out the image mirrored below.

Also included below is a look at one of their upcoming pieces, also from the Autobot ranks - Prowl, with double shoulder rockets, headcrest, sheriff stars on each shoulder piece and all! Check them both out, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub.

Well sideshow (I think it was sideshow) did a sexy movie Starscream statue - you might have missed that one - was about 1700 usd, LEDs. I woulda got it if I had the money at the time. But since I have a nostalgic love of G1 Starscream - I decided ultimately to get that one. I don't understand all this BS with people complaing what others like. Companies want to make money, and they know G1 is a popular line and will generally sell. They may not want to take a risk of making something with a high price tag that won't do well - I can't imagine kicker being popular. If you also refer to me as one of the bellyachers who likes G1, keep in mind, I am pretty open minded and enjoy most, if not all series (energon aside)

You can ignore Fenrir, most do, he just spouts this to see if anyone takes the bait.

Because what he says is nonsense anyway, its not just G1 stuff out there. There are statues out there for G1, Live action films, a cross of the two, and Beast Wars.
