Optimus Prime Statue Pre-Order at Sideshow Collectibles
Primus - Friday, April 09, 2010

Looks like Pop Box collectibles has cut a deal to get Sideshow to carry there Optimus Prime statue. Pop Box announced this statue recently at an outrageous price of nearly $400 for a statue that is not to scale with an over-sized head, lacks most of the detailing from the movie character and has a gaunt uninspired pose. Statues are supposed to be super accurate right? Order the Optimus Prime Statue for $389.99 from Sideshow Collectibles.
    Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the Optimus Prime Statue by PopBox Collectibles. This statuette is the result of a delicate balance between skilled hand craftsmanship and precise computer assisted output, bringing the Autobot leader to life. The Hot Rod flames that personify Prime in the movie are faithfully reproduced as high-quality water-slide decals, each carefully applied during production. The availability of two sets of switch-out hands and a set of his energy sword with magnetic attachments allows you to effortlessly interchange parts for a personalized display. This showcase piece, consisting of over 100 individual parts, is cast in heavy weight, high-quality polystone then hand-painted to exacting standards. Each piece is packaged in a full color box with cushioned foam interior and comes with certificate of authenticity.

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 ... read more

$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 o... read more

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.

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

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

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.

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

In a saddeningly timely turn of events, CNN Money has reported that Charles Lazarus, founder of ToysRUs, has passed away at the age of 94. Lazarus began the business that came to be known as ToysRUs in 1948, opening his first all-toy store in 1957 and staying with the company until 1994. TFormers expresses our deepest condolences Mr. Lazarus' friends and family.
On Facebook, XM Studios has posted a new teaser render for an upcoming licensed Megatron statue they're working on. The highly stylized take on G1 Megatron has all of the recognizable elements, though done in a style that's more like movie-meets-G1. Interestingly it's also called out as being "1/10 scale". But without an indication what they're basing the "real" height on, that doesn't offer much clarity toward the size that this statue will ultimately be. We've mirrored the teaser image below, click through and take a look!
Transformers At The Moon has posted the latest in their series of deleted audio and extended scenes from the original 1984 The Transformers cartoon series! This time, they've got over ten minutes' worth of dialogue from "Heavy Metal War," featuring the first appearance of the Constructicons. Keep reading to see the video along with a transcript of the dialogue.
The closure of ToysRUs provokes a lot of emotions - sadness, frustration at the circumstances, and in some a misguided sense of satisfaction stemming from their latter-day pricing habits. But at some point in our lives a great many of us were ToysRUs Kids. And so longtime Transformers fan and ASMzine proprietor Phil Zeman has created the site I Didn't Want to Grow Up, which is accepting submissions of your stories and reminiscences of visiting what was once the premiere source of action figures for children and collectors.

Few would guess the last piece to be reissued from the original Transformers Generation 1 series would be the music scores. Even though the original cartoons have been reissued, updated and restored multiple times. Fans that have been asking for copies of the Original Sound Tracks (OST) masters have finally gotten theirs, on vinyl of all things. IF, they were fast enough to buy one of the 2,000 copies that sold out in less than 10 minutes. The good news is a second pressing is in the works.
