Toy Fair 2010 - New Transformers Bust, Banks and Statues

Just in from Toy Fair 2010 where Tformers staff continue to bring you the latest and greatest news coverage from the event. We have news and images the new Transformers Generation 1 statues and busts that will be coming from Diamond Select.

Keeping with their recent focus on the G1 series renditions, they have again produced more products focused primarily on Optimus Prime and Megatron. Both of the leaders have been honored with a full sized statue depicting the characters from the G1 cartoons with their animation color themes.

Additionally, Diamond was showing each leader gets a Bust Bank edition as a separate release. Optionally, Prime fans will be glad to know, Optimus gets an all new bust that is based the Powermaster Optimus Prime. The detail is just awesome!

Gotta hand it to Diamond for coming up with two really great Statues. Megatron looks awesome! The removable cab front that reveals the Matrix of Leadership is pretty cool too but it looks a tad small in the one on display. As an added bonus, each statue comes with its own Generation 1 styled stand. Niiiice!

These figures will be released with the following prices and dates:
  • Megatron Bust Bank - $19.99 - April 2010
  • Optimus Prime Bust Bank - $19.99 - March 2010
  • Megatron Statue - $150.00 - June 2010
  • Optimus Prime Statue - $150.00 - July 2010
  • Powermaster Optimus Prime Bust - $70.00 - October 2010

I'm getting to that point :tfsad

Stuff like busts and statues I never really cared for so whatever.

The thing thats getting me is that only about a third of what we've seen this weekend is grabbing my intrest, if that. To much of it just looks chincy and cheap and I don't wanna pay money into that.

It bumbs me out because going to the store, finding a bunch of new figures and rushing home with them is one of my favorite things. It's one thing if the product wasn't out there, it's something completely different when it just isn't worth a dam.

I don't mind and actualy like that they're changing up the designs. I don't like that they're doing it at the expense of intracy and quality.

I collect G.I. Joe as well as Transformers and that's what think about Hasbro's upcoming Pursuit of Cobra line. Aside from a few vehicles, there really isn't anything that I want to buy. The best news about G.I. Joe from Toy Fair is that there will be new Sgt. Slaughter figure at this year's SDCC. Unless Hasbro has some other figures planned, namely new sculpt versions of '80s figures, I won't be spending much money on G.I. Joe this year.

I may have to actually break down and buy that Powermaster Prime bust...

So glad I stop collecting mass released items

If I saw the banks in the toy isle with the Spider-Man and Wolverine ones I'd spring for a megatron. Pass if I have to order it though.

These look very nice, but there's just no way I'm spending money on them when there's so much cooler things coming out this year!
