Review for the Statue
on September 30, 2014
Received this item today. I'd like to first say that this review is specifically for the statue itself and not on the movie. I'd rather not get involved with discussions on how great the movie was or wasn't.
Statue comes in a 2 piece plastic shell with the Blu Ray off in a compartment to the side. The Blu Ray is not 3D, for those who are curious about that. Once opened the piece is very light and made from some form of plastic resin. It's proportions are a little off from what I would've expected from a movie accurate sculpt but for the price, one can't really ask for a museum quality piece. The statue has some flimsy areas, such as Optimus' arms, I'm afraid if there is too much pressure or if it's mishandled I might break a piece of it off. Grimlock looks great, it's paint job is near perfect with some minor imperfections. Optimus is painted using a matte blue as opposed to a metallic blue and has issues with a lot of paint bleed. It's face is extremely lackluster and kind of a disappointment but not too big a worry if it's displayed afar.
Overall I think it looks great despite the paint flaws and it's definitely a great piece for people who want a sculpt of Optimus Prime riding Grimlock and will tide serious collectors over until the Prime 1 piece is released.
