Chinese metal handicrafts manufacturer Tongshifu has teamed up with Hasbro to brings us new Officially Licensed Transformers Copper Statues & Figurines.
Did you think die-cast was a lost art? Tongshifu is bringing a nice and detailed line of Transformers statues and figurines made of copper for the Chinese market. The list of characters covers a variety of lines from G1, The Last Knight and the Bunblebee movie, all of them highly detailed and with a nice sculpt and finishing.
- G1 Figurines – Small scale, available in unpainted copper. Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, Soundwave and Starscream.
- The Last Knight statues – Bigger scale, fully painted. Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.
- The Last Knight figurines – Chibi-style painted characters. Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee and Sqweeks.
- Bumblebee Movie statues – Big scale with characters in scale to each other. Available fully painted or unpainted. Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee, Soundwave and Blitz… Starscream? (check the color version). Some of them seem to be based on early concept art like Bumblebee who still has his door-wings on the back.
Additionally, some furniture like chairs are being released. We still have no information on price or if these items will be released outside China.
