With the “robots in disguise” returning to the big screen in Transformers: Age of Extinction, we’re taking a look back at one of the most detailed high-end figures to emerge from their first live action trilogy, the PopBox Collectibles Optimus Prime Statue.

It’s evident that PopBox’s design team focused on exhaustive aesthetic detail (rather than articulation) as their Optimus statue is a jaw-dropping reproduction of the Autobots’ resilient leader as he appeared in 2009’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The roughly 12.5” tall digitally sculpted polystone statue is comprised of over 100 individual pieces that have been meticulously assembled and painted by hand. The figure is weighty; and its surfaces bears the realistic appearance of polished metal. The exquisite assembly and robust, movie-accurate painted finish go a long way toward helping collectors overlook the fact that the PopBox Optimus Statue doesn’t actually transform.

Although the poseability of the PopBox Optimus Prime Statue may be limited, the figure comes with two additional sets of interchangeable hands as well as dual energy swords. The swappable swords and hands are held in place by magnetized posts that attach to the figure’s wrists and lend the statue a welcome touch of user-customizable display options. A wooden, hand-numbered display base and certificate of authenticity from the manufacturer round out the packing list.

The PopBox Optimus Prime Statue was a clear must-have for Transformers aficionados when it released in 2011 at a retail price of roughly $400 USD. Since then, finding one of these rare, limited edition Transformers collectibles can prove to be particularly challenging. Fortunately, we have plenty of images of PopBox’s magnificent Optimus statue to peruse below.
