Sideshow Officially to Produce ROTF Products

As hinted at over a month ago with a preview of the 20'' Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime Maquette, Sideshow Collectibles has officially announced they will make products based on the movie. Sideshow makes high end (and expensive) statues and other collectibles based on movies and comics such as The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Star Wars, Iron Man, X-Men and more. Sadly most are out of my price range but the stuff they produce is very nice.

The press release:
Sideshow Expands Its Premium Collectible Offerings To Include Licensed Product For TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN

Thousand Oaks, California (September, 2009) - Global leader in the manufacturing of licensed and proprietary high-end product Sideshow Collectibles under license from Hasbro, has signed an agreement for the TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN license. Celebrating the summer blockbuster, the Sideshow Collectibles license will allow the production of Maquettes and Statues based on the popular brand.

The Sideshow Collectibles team looks forward to the release of its first products as a great addition to Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS franchise. “Coming from a generation that grew up with these characters, we think the fan reaction to these collectibles will be very positive,” states Sideshow Creative Director Tom Gilliland, adding, “Creating these icons for collectors is a venture that we’re happy to undertake.”

TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN from DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, in association with Hasbro, continues the story from the 2007 worldwide blockbuster film that finds two warring factions of robots colliding in a major battle on planet Earth.
I get the impression the company is limited to to only producing images based off of Revenge of the Fallen but if things go well maybe the future will expand to other Transformer properties such as Generation 1, the comics and more.
