Collector Community: Transformers Figures Roll Out!
There’s no one definitive way to be a fan of pop culture, and there are no rules for displaying all your favorite fandom collectibles. At Sideshow, we celebrate the passion of a global collector community, which is exactly why we wanted to see how you display your collectibles.
Sideshow’s incredible collector community has come together this week to share their love for all things Transformers, from both sides of the circuitboard on Cybertron. The photos this week are hardwired to highlight the power and might of the robots in disguise. Our collectors’ displays feature fan favorites from the Autobots as well as the Decepticons because, after all, what’s a hero without a worthy villain?
Of course, the heroic and admirable Optimus Prime leads the charge against the Decepticons. Without his steadfast leadership among the Autobots, Earth would surely fall to the formidable Decepticons. Alongside this legendary leader is Bumblebee, the Autobot with a heart of gold and an ear for music. He’s the scrappiest of the bunch but also adept at forging connections with humans, and his signature yellow armor makes Bumblebee stand out in any lineup.
On the other hand, the Decepticons demand attention in their own right. The tyrannical Megatron looms over the weak humans, intimidating any onlookers with his sleek metallic plates and razor-sharp weaponry. Under his glowing red eye, the rise of the Decepticons is surely just around the corner, especially with the ever-loyal Soundwave and Ravage at his side. These two have been with Megatron since the beginning of the Decepticons. Megatron also has Blitzwing to back him up, a juggernaught of strength on any battlefield. His titanic power can take down any opponent, no matter their size. Yet logic dictates that Shockwave not be forgotten — his computerized tactics leave no room for error and whenever Megatron makes a misstep, Shockwave is waiting in the shadows to take over.
Rounding out this ragtag group of robotic aliens is Grimlock, the leader of the Dinobots. While this strike squad is technically on the side of the Autobots, you might not know it. The team hardly hides their disdain for Optimus Prime, though when push comes to shove, they will always unite with their heroic allies against the Decepticons. The mission of any Autobot is preserving freedom at all costs.
Here’s a small selection of some of our favorite displays shared by you, the fans!
