    The 'Best' of Transformers Comic-Magazin was a fanzine distributed free at this year's Auto Assembly convention. Copies were limited and it was very popular, so I've uploaded it in PDF form for everyone to enjoy. Just go to the below link and view in-browser, or click the download link to download a copy.

    Best of TF Comic-Magazin by ~Blueshift2k5 on deviantART

    This fanzine is a collection of translated prose stories from the official German Transformers 'Comic-Magazin' published in the late 80s and early 90s. These form an exciting if bizarre 'forgotton' canon and are at the very least entertaining reading, together with new illustrations by various fans. These are all official Transformers stories, and probably some of the strangest things you will ever see.

    Where do the Classic Pretenders really come from?
    What is Shockwave's Galactic Secret?
    Why does Goldbug want to desperately speak to Bumblebee?
    How did Optimus Prime build (and curse!) the pyramids?

    All these and more will be answered!

    ...what's with the ad for the KO-coloured toys on the last page?

    *reads the profiles*

    Okay, so their colour schemes aren't the only ridicilous thing there. "FUNBACK: Evil Decepticon walking carnival with balloon-popping action"? :lol

    I'd assume those are artist renditions of characters mentioned in the text stories, and color schemes lifted straight from the covers. :D
