Collectible News: 3A and Sideshow Collectibles Optimus Prime statue
Sideshow Collectibles is known for their high end statues and figures and now they have revealed a statue based on Generation One Optimus Prime. Designed by artist Ashley Wood the figure has Wood's distinctive realistic "worn" style while calling back to many of G1 Optimus Prime's features. From the Official Sideshow Listing:
"The Optimus Prime Classic Edition stands approximately 16” (40.64cm) tall and bears a stylized brawler-esque physique. The Classic Edition features a hefty 30% die-cast body, heavily weathered metallic paint, LED illuminated detailing, and an incredible range of articulation – including opening Matrix Chamber. The tankards and wheel wells are removable for a more streamlined animation style appearance. Transformers Generation One Optimus Prime comes complete with interchangeable Energon Axe and his iconic Blaster Rifle."
Among the accessories included are his axe, the Matrix of Leadership, rifle, grenades and removable tire wells. The figure is also 30% die-cast metal and features LED lighting!
The asking price for the figure is $390 USD and the expected ship date is between August to October 2017.
