Via Geek Freaks Philippines Website we ca share for you an impressive set of pictures of the new Bumblebee & Exo-Suit Spike Statue by XM Studios.
XM Studios had already worked in impressive reinterpretations of G1 characters with a highly stylized design and proportions, bringing a fresh modern look to the classic Transformers. We had already seen their take on Megatron, Optimus Prime and Starscream. Now it’s turn of popular yellow Autobot scout Bumblebee who comes with his human partner Spike in Exo-Suit. Both are ready to fire Decepticons in a great dynamic pose. To top it all, a VW Beetle car is also included for decoration. This statue is casted in porcelain, with two display alternatives: with battle mask or regular face, both with light-up effect.
According to XM Studios pre-orders will start this November 6th. Click on the bar to see the mirrored gallery and the complete product description and let us know your impressions on the 2005 Boards!
XM Studios is excited to present our next Transformers Premium Collectibles series statue, Bumblebee! Immortalized in amazingly detailed 1:10 scale cold-cast porcelain, each painstakingly handcrafted statue is individually hand-painted with the famous XM quality finish. Crafted from scratch, every nut, bolt and wire is lovingly designed and sculpted ground up by a team in mad love with the Transformers G1 era of cartoons. Inspired by one of our childhood favorite 80s cartoons, we took the G1’s iconic form design and XMized them with modern details, to better fit in today’s expectations of sophisticated robotry designs. We have spared no effort and designing these original pieces took our core team almost 2 years, resulting in an amazing balance of retro beauty with sleek modern details. What’s a transformer without it’s alternate mode? Yes, this statue comes with a companion statue, the vehicle mode so collectors can enjoy the beauty of both bot and alternate mode at the same time!
Part of the Autobot army on Cybertron and Earth, Bumblebee is one of the smallest Autobots. Brave and friendly, he befriends humans easily. One such human is Spike Witwicky, his best friend and one of autobots human allies.
