I'd LOVE to make that much in a week. I'm not sure what kind of hourly rates a machinist makes, but it could be high.

Either way, this statue is a huge turd and an overpriced one at that. $400 for something that you just...look at? That other guy had the right idea, I'm gonna buy a Perfect Grade Gundam GP01 instead....

$1000 a week and your doing OK after taxes, anything less and your struggling if you have real bills.

Hell I'm 34 and when I was 9 (no joke) I was bringing in more then $30 a week.

Money doesn't grow on trees, thats a given. However if you want it, and you need it, get the hell out there and make it!

In Febuary we had tons of snowfall in NJ. I'm 34 and between jobs so you know what I did. I grabbed a shovel and rand some bells.

My 43yr old neighbor joined me and in 1 day we worked or asses off, broke our backs, but each counted 650 well earned dollars at the end of the day while sharing a beer :mwahaha

If you have time to sit here online, you have time to make some money. I've always worked, and it hasn't always been pretty. There's nothing wrong with flipping a burger, or picking up something like a shovel or rake!

Now get to it and earn your figure :thumb

-sorry, getting this confused with the Knight Morpher thread. Still good advice.

Maybe he does. If only to find a job that pays $1,000 a week. Or win the lottery

I think they are saying it i12 inches tall though. I paid $500 for a Aspen statues years ago and she is 24 inches tall.

Liege Evilmus - 2010-04-10 @ 11:11 pm

You think $1000 is alot a week?

Lord Atmo - 2010-04-10 @ 10:44 pm

hmm, I already have it preorder at BBTS and they're doing it at like 359 I think it was? I wonder if I hold off, if it'll be going cheaper after it's release? I kinda like it..

WOW! How much do you make in a week? $1000.00? You're buring an awful lot of money for this!

TRANS-lego-MaN - 2010-04-10 @ 5:58 pm

ha thats funny a TF movie statue for $400, you have to really adure the movie to get this

Ha! based on how ROTF was, not likey, but if they made something like this for the first movie, more people would buy it.

thats true but you have to have $400 laying around somewhere to want to get this or you don't have any thing else to spend $400 on
Lord_Onslaught - 2010-04-09 @ 10:59 pm

I'll wait for it on eBay

UltraConvoy - 2010-04-09 @ 10:22 pm

If i can find the prototype I would buy it :)

Yuyuyami - 2010-04-09 @ 10:21 pm

No, you're not.

I don't quite mind a cartoon accurate G1 bust of a popular character, but that's only because of GWUNNY.

Jason X - 2010-04-09 @ 10:13 pm

Am I the only one who thinks making statues and busts of Transformers negates the purpose of TFs in the first place?
