It looks like Hasbro is not the only one with new things to show during Cybertron Con 2016 in Shanghai, as Imaginarium Art has brought two amazing looking statues to convention. First off is an updated version of their previously announced Generations 1 SoundWave statue, which also include some of the iconic Decepticon Mini-Cassettes like Ravage, Lazerbeak, and Rumble (or Frenzy) scattered in a battlefield kind of setting. On top of that, they also brought out a never before seen statue of Generation 1 Ultra Magnus in a very commanding pose. Behind him on the statue is a set of artillery cannons, perhaps poised to shoot down any Decepticons flying by. Check out the images courtesy of 52Toys on Weibo after the break.

In honor of the 30th anniversary of the 1986 Transformers Movie, Primitive Skateboarding has teamed up with Hasbro to homage the beloved film with a series of skate decks! Each skate deck has a part of an impressive mural that is formed when all skate decks are set next to each other, and the piece features Shockwave, Soundwave, Starscream, Megatron, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime, and a new fictional Autobot named VX, each of which are featured on their own skate deck. In addition to skateboards, they’ve also produced some grip tape, buttons, etc. featuring parts of the art depicted on the skateboards themselves.
You can check out the catalog here and be sure to check out the pics we’ve mirrored after the jump!
Prime 1 Studio also has their Generation 1-inspired Megatron statue on display at Wonderfest2016, and he’s sporting quite a unique aesthetic that’s very similar to Prime’s. The Decepticon leader’s design takes many cues from his G1 self as he seems to have a gun alt mode (although the statue does not transform) which is indicated by the hammer on his shoulder, barrel on his back, and lack of tank treads on his legs. Like the other statues, Megatron also has LEDs in his eyes to help bring him to life.

Prime 1 Studio’s has updated their Instagram account with a tease for their next statue in their Generation 1 line. This time, we get a shot of Laserbeak on top of Soundwave’s right shoulder, as a tease for a Soundwave statue. If the design on Laserbeak is any indication, this Soundwave is going to be fantastic looking. Josh Nizzi, famous for some of his movie designs, is listed in the hash tags on this instagram post and the expected release is late 2017.

Either way it’s bad ass and PMTF-01 coming at you later this year for around $1000 USD. Check out the awesome piece and some additional details after the break!
