    Very cool. Reminds me of the back of the original boxes. And I see other seekers in the background. It would be nice to get those too. :p

    That's pretty damned awesome. I sometimes complain about Alex's storytelling but his poster work is undoubtedly awesome.

    Wow, that's just classic... and I love the background cameos... Anyone else notice the white Music Label Soundwave and gold Laserbeak?

    I LOVE Alex's work.

    That being said (and as much as I REALLY love this piece), this piece reminds me how much I miss the oldskool airbrushed/painted illustrations from G1. Even as a kid, I really LOVED the abstractness of the original G1 box art and even how the illustration designs did not match up to the actual toys designs. One of my absolute, fondest memories as a kid was getting my first TF (G1 Thundercracker) and getting lost in the illustration.

    This piece actually still evoked a lot of that, not only because of the composition parameters, but because of how well Alex pulls it off. EPIC WIN.

    This piece is awesome for paying homage to the original G1 back of the box art work for series 1. It kinda validates the whole Shattered Glass theme set for me which of course saddens me that I don't have this set now. :banghead:
