Arcee and Shockwave are now large scale??!! Man thats disappointing. Arcee especially in the LOC scale is worth the price to me. But as a $1000 plus USD statue. No Way! They are getting only one more large scale out of me and that,s Megatron to Match my Optimus Prime.

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

Shockwave is large.

Arcee is unknown. There was a vote and Large was winning. However a lot of people were voting blindly saying they want everything large and didn't even realise the vote had a picture of the Arcee sculpt in it.

Pretty good customer service!

Yep. The big autobot symbol on the front. I'm wondering if this was a return to BBTS. The box itself appeared opened but none of the pieces were unwrapped, or at least didn't appear to be so.

Strange. Has that been common? Is it supposed to be in a specific slot in the packaging, or is it supposed to be attached to the base? Via a magnet?

I'm still thinking of getting Rodimus. Despite never loving Rodimus, I'm trying to decide if it's the one piece that will encapsulate all that is Transformers to me - as I only want to have one (or two) Transformers in my collection (they're just too expensive, and characters I liked as a kid don't appeal to me as much now). The movie is all that really matters to me, and it'd be tough to find a better movie scene that this one.

How pleased is everyone with Rodimus?

Mine came with everything. The Autobot symbol does have it's own spot inside the foam packing. Weird it wasn't included.

@Craig, did it look like the two rows of tape around the black foam was cut then taped again?

I'm happy with mine. I really don't like the pose with the gun because Rodimus's face looks constipated but him holding the MOL is iconic. They need to just focus on one pose with switchouts ala Optimus. I also don't like the lazy susan base. If it would turn on battery or electricity that would have been awesome. Instead they painted the two pieces black so when you turn it you can potentially scrape the paint off both circles. Plus it doesn't really go with any of the other Transformers bases.

I can't tell you what to get. The statues I buy are either characters I like or designs I will continue to look at. IMO the Matrix pose is iconic but you're paying for another pose you may not like. My other suggestion is the Grimlock/Sharkticon dio. Yes it's expensive but it's a centerpiece, another iconic moment and no switchouts so you know what your getting when you pay.

I've included some pictures. Poor Ultra Magnus, he's been waiting to be displayed but he's such a good statue I don't know what arms I want to pose him with.

Thanks for the reply.

How easily does the base turn? Does it need decent force to start spinning? Does it 'lock' at all?

Grimlock looks damn impressive. I liked the Dinobots as a kid (Slag was my boy though), but now they're not my cup of tea.

The only other scene I would want (and it would probably be in addition to having Rodimus), would be to have Megatron becoming Galvatron. I've thought about that one a lot. Probably in the minority, because my idea would be for some translucent purple resin depicting the transformation effect, and partially painted Megatron on one side and Galvatron on the other. Most people probably want a straight-up statue of one or the other, but that is the only other iconic scene on the same level as Rodimus, to me.

Sorry, it was mine that is missing the emblem. Craig posted my pic as we chat off the forum regularly. The tape was not cut that I noticed but the box had definitely been opened. The foam piece where the emblem should have been under it was there, so it's weird. First time for me missing a piece. IA said the replacement should be here within seven working days, so I'm happy.

Anyway, takes a lot of force to turn him, it's kind of pointless but I guess they were trying something new.

I really like Rodiums and as stated above, the matrix pose is iconic. I will never have him with the other pose. I like him more than Optimus but less than Ultra Magnus. Magnus and Soundwave are tops in my book.
