  1. Jesus dude! That's just CLASSIC artwork right there! I wish I had that much to spend! :(

    Don't get me wrong, I saved all my old boxes, but I wish I could just see the ORIGINAL painting in person just to say I did! Such nostalgia!

  2. Not worth the price.

  3. "Not worth the price."

    You don't know what you are saing, Bayformer Child...

  4. yeah that's awesome but where are the rest? is that the only one?

    and the guy listing the auction has no reputation on ebay either. i would avoid it.

  5. I remember it on all the boxes of my brother's post "Transformers: The Movie" purchases.

  6. there is a photo of his signature, and a pic of the painting next to another transformers piece, framed and hung on the wall. what else do you need?

  7. "and the guy listing the auction has no reputation on ebay either. i would avoid it."

    Yeah, because everybody on ebay starts with 200 positive opinions... Great logic.

  8. "a piece of Transformers Art that was used on packaging for the later waves of Generation 1 Transformers"

    Later waves?

    Just the 1986 boxes. 1987 to 1991 featured different art.


  9. Thank you very much for this useful article. I like it.
