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.

Spikes armor is actually my favorite thing about this. Bumblebee just kind of rubs me wrong. I guess it's because when I think G1 bee, I think of a cheery optimistic type, not a 1990's GRRR face :lol:

Spike is easily the best part of this.

Below you will find a description and images of the new Rodimus prime statue from XM Studios. The statue is said to be in 1/10th scale and while they say it is Rodimus Prime, it being this stylized makes it hard to see why it wouldn't simply be Hot Rod. Especially when the alternate vehicle they show is Hot Rod's and not Rodimus'.
This is available for preorder for a bit less than the $2000 mark.



XM Studios is excited to present our next 1:10 Scale Transformers Premium Collectibles series statue, Rodimus Prime! Each handcrafted statue is individually hand-painted with the 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 favourite 80s cartoon, we took the G1's iconic form design and XM-ized 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.

Pre-Order opens 14 April 2021, 6pm SGT (UTC+8).
Pre-Order before 28 April 2021, 6pm SGT (UTC+8) to receive a collectible Display Plaque of this featured character as your early bird gift!

Inspired by The Transformers: The Movie, Rodimus Prime readies for battle!
Unicron theme inspired base
2 Right hands: 1 holding gun, 1 holding long rifle
2 Left hands: 1 holding gun, 1 holding the Matrix of leadership
Alternate Vehicle Mode: Car
Light up eyes

Nice statue. But "Rodimus" will never be Optimus Prime....

Rodimus was only 20 feet tall? I imagined him taller

Thankfully no. Rodimus Prime will never have his followers take a trip with him into the sun, or have himself chopped up and made into an alligator.

Or fail to think of a convincing way to differentiate himself from an evil clone who can't remember most of the Autobots' names :P

That episode is so dumbfounding. I just couldn't believe what I was watching.

That "Rodimus Prime" is "Bumblebee Movie Hot Rod".
Seriously, it's the same kind of style and would not look out of place in the opening scene of the movie.

Regardless, it's pretty awesome looking, but for the hardcore Hotrod fans who have the money and space to spare only.
