“Love that guy. Goosebumps every time.”
- About Optimus Prime

Crosshairs is an Autobot member and supporting character in the 2014 movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction and its sequel Transformers: The Last Knight. When the chips are down, Crosshairs is the kind of guys you would want on your team. Or you would if it wasn’t for the fact that he’s self-loving and more than a bit of a jerk.

Crosshairs choose to be independent so that he can avoid danger, even if his allies are in danger.

Just as we report on the latest statue offering from official license-holders Prime 1 Studio - the MMTFM-19: Crosshairs release, just newsed here - the Transformers areas at Tokyo Comic Con also bring us some closer looks at this one figure, and the previously shown MMTFM-15 Barricade (first newsed here).

Also included in the images below, mirrored once again from Twitter user 7777_diver who is present at the event taking place this weekend, are previous releases in the Museum Masterline Transformers Movie (in the sense of live-action films) line from the company, such as Shockwave, Ratchet, and Jazz. You can check them all out below, and let us know what you think of these high-end not exactly collectibles in the Energon Pub Discussion Boards!

Ewww....thats a face only a mother can love. Im still dying to see whos actually buying these damn $1500 statues. Is this not the same fandom that wants to buy POTP Optimus as a "stand in" for MP-10? Is this not the same fandom that complains about a $50 import tax? Is this not the same fandom that left Walmart shelves clogged with Bayverse toys 5 times already? Who the hell spends $1500 and a non-transforming statue? Especially one of a character who barely did anything in the movie?

Yes, because every fandom is a singular entity, and if any two people within that fandom hold different opinions then it's hypocrisy and needs to be called out!

Bear in mind that if we take the production numbers for say, the Crosshairs statue, then if 1050 people - 1050 people in the entire world - decide to buy it for the asking price, then all the stock will be sold and Prime 1 Studio will be totally satisfied. On the other hand, if 1050 people the world over buy a copy of every single movie-related item, or purchase an MP-10, or don't complain about import taxes on the internet, nobody's ever going to notice the slightest difference.

Not that I'd ever buy these in all my years either, but don't confuse general consensus for unanimous opinion. Some people do want to buy these, and if they decide they want to spend a few thousand dollars on non-transforming statues, that's their prerogative! :D

Well im genuinely curious exactly what type of Transformers fans buy $1500 statues. My first thought might be movie buffs who also have statues of Predator, Iron Man, Terminator, etc. But then I think those guys probally wouldnt buy characters outside of Optimus Prime, Megatron, or Bumblebee. But Crosshairs? No way ! Thats a character only a hardcore Transformers fan would buy. So where are the hardcore Transformers fans that snub MP to collect $1500 statues? Are you out there? (crickets chirping)

One thing I noticed about these statue threads on both here and TFW is that you never see anybody posting the usual comments such as "it will be mine" or "pre-ordered on sight" or the infamous "shut up and take my money" meme. Where are these uber-rich super fans of Transformers? They sure arent here or on TFW. What kind of hardcore fans buy $1500 statues but dont post on fan sites? Its mind boggling. I recall BBTS asking for a non refundable down payment to pre-order one of these things. Cant say that I blame them, but it leads me to believe these things are really made to order and the whole "limited run" is a lie to get you to believe the makers sell more than 15 or 20 of them. $1500 x 1000 = 1 and a half million. I dont believe they make that much off of one statue when Takara cant even get 3,000 people worldwide to pre-order Grand Maximus for $250.

That's also true, I've never seen anyone sharing their desire to buy these things. But there must be a fair few of them somewhere; I'll readily admit I don't know anything about the toy production process, but I have a hard time believing they'd make their money back on the whole production process if they only sold double-digit numbers.

I've got no idea where these mystery buyers are, but I'm sure they must exist since these statues just keep comin'. I think you might actually be on to something with the idea that they're being bought mostly by movie buffs and the like - it's quite possible that purveyors of high-end collectables who liked the Transformers characters as a child (for the G1 statues) or appreciate the live-action designs (for the movie statues) but don't care about the actual toys, would spring for at least one or two of these.

It seems weird, but it might explain why they tend not to show up on fan boards like these. Paradoxically, they may not be big enough Transformers fans to buy a bunch of cheap kids' toys or join messageboards to talk about the franchise, but they just might think fondly enough of the characters and/or designs to buy a $1500 statue or two, if they're that kind of collector already.

Another theory I have is these mystery statue collectors might all be living in Asia and dont read or speak any english. They might be rich guys that work for successful tech companies. The type of guys that live in Tokyo or Hong Kong high rise apartments. People that are not connected with any crowd except business friends and really hot Asian chicks. As much as "geeks" are associated with sci-fi franchises, when you spend that kind of money the girls will party with you lol.

Probably the same kind of fans who don't hesitate to buy those 1000$ MP-10 special repaints, AFA-graded sealed G1 Transformers, or Lucky Draws.

If they keep making those super expensive statues, it's because many people DO buy these things. They are just not vocal about it I guess.

On my end, I bought two statues in my lifetime.

A 200$ MTG Spirit Link statue (Instead of an Unlimited Mox Saphir at the time):


And a 400$ Cutey Honey statue (Instead of a PS2 at the time):


Their value kept going down and down and down. You can still buy both for like 1/4 of their original price, brand new and sealed.
Both end up having some fingers broken off due to mishandling/cats. So now, both are totally worthless. I just can't bring myself to throw them in the garbage.........

So, even though that Shockwave above look INCREDIBLE, I just can't bring myself to spend more than 100$ on a statue. Breakage risks are real and the long term value is iffy at best.
