Apparently, Autobot’s Optimus Prime does not want to be outdone by Decepticon’s Megatron and decided that he should be a graffiti artist too. However, unlike QUICCS’ Meg the Graffiti artist, the Unruly Industries Optimus Prime Statue by artist Sket One is kind of a messy painter with paint “dripping” all over him.
He is armed with spray cans and a prime respirator as well as a paint roller on a staff, and an ion blaster that now sprays paint. Somehow, it feels like this Prime is out to clean up Meg’s graffiti.
Not sure if it is intentional, but like Megatron, QUICCS’ DJ-ing Soundwave appears to have a rival too. It is a statue of Bumblebee as a hip-hop artist of some sort. OK. Bee as an artiste could totally work with DJ Soundwave.
This unusual representation of Bumblebee, the Unruly Industries Bumblebee Statue, was the creation of NYV artist kaNO.
Both the Unruly Industries Optimus Prime Statue by Sket One and the Unruly Industries Bumblebee Statue by kaNO are available for pre-order priced at US$115 and US$125, respectively.
While they are limited edition, no official number of units are provided. Bee is expected to ship sometime in July-September 2022 and Prime is expected to start shipping between October and December 2022.
