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

As if Optimus jumped out of the screen! Is it posable though? Meaning more action figure than statue? If yes, that's very interesting. If not, it's a big "meh".

Statues are rarely posable. I don't think any statue I have is.

Some ultra expensive, ultra premium figures are called "posable statues". But I don't remember the brand. They make Bayverse and IDWverse ones.

Perhaps some. One I paid about 2k (including shipping) isn't posable.

Shortly after we got our first full look at the statue, we now have an online listing for Pop Culture licensed Shock's Optimus Prime statue!

The statue (set for release some time between now and August) will measure approximately 10.5" tall, and features a swappable right arm to give Prime either his Ion Blaster or Energon Axe. It can be pre-ordered from Pop Culture Shock's website for $160 (including an initial deposit) or for $128 if paid all at once. The listing also features more photos from various angles, a few of which we've mirrored below for your convenience!

Wow, that looks good. Shame I don't collect these kinds of things, cause I'd definitely get this.

Wasn't all that interested before when I assumed it would be a $500 statue, but now knowing it's only $128 and has optional parts I'm quite a bit more interested. :-?

Courtesy of the Instagram account for Pop! Culture Shock collectibles, we have the first image of their next officially licensed Transformers statue - after the cell shaded Optimus Prime we have seen, and the Megatron sketch at San Diego Comic Con 2018, both initially designed by Emiliano Santalucia - and it's continuing on the Decepticon line-up with the Seeker leader and faction second-in-command: Starscream!

The prototype is still in its early stages, so plenty of details are still missing, but you can still check it out below and let us know what you think of this new line - does it interest you? Do you want to see more? Is it something you'd consider picking up for display? Join the Energon Pub and share your thoughts!

Starscream is printed. Don’t pay attention to the top of the base or jets fire as those will be hand sculpted

What are you talking about? This statue is all grey. It's obviously not Blitzwing unless it's red and blue Image

I resisted making the joke myself, thank you for supplying it. :-P

looks sweet, but I don't think I have room for that fella.

I hope that's not a final size, the big size, and accompanying giant price tag will probably turn away a lot of buyers.

Still looks pretty sweet though.
