    Okay just need to know which one would be better to get signed by stan lee in terms of posters as a Marvel Productions poster, rather the 1984 tv series poster OR the 1986 transformers movie poster, what do you guys think?

    Neither. He didn't have anything to do with either. If you have a chance to get something signed by him, my honest advice would be to take him something he worked on.

    Southtownkid Marvel brought out the first comics when he owned the company, he may not of written it but he would of signed the contract for marvel to do it so he did have a hand involved in doing so.

    Geez, do a little research. Stan Lee had NOTHING to do with the comics.

    He had long since given over the reigns of Marvel to a string of successive editors-in-chief, and they kept Lee's NAME ONLY on the book out of a sense of tradition. Stan Lee was long gone from the Marvel offices before Transformers came into being. Stan Lee didn't sign any Transformers contracts, and it's likely he never read a single issue. Try Jim Shooter. He was Marvel EiC at the time of the deal. Also, as a side note, Stan Lee never owned Marvel.

    If his name is on it, then ”technically” he had ”something” to do with it.

    but he still is with the company and always will be till he dies, "stan lee presents" ever heard of it, why do you think he is in every marvel movie? He is and always will be associated with MARVEL and all comics under the MARVEL reign no matter when the comic changed hands, face it south you lost your argument as you said to me "Do your research" obviously you haven't done yours hard enough!

    Whatever. Do whatever you like. Just try not to feel bad when he gives you a blank look when you hand him something to sign that he had nothing to do with, had no input in, and never read nor watched. I was just trying to help you not waste a once in a lifetime chance to meet a living legend. But if you are that dead-set on wasting it, go for it.

    Well, he was running the company when the involvement with marvel happened, so I guess tangentially he's related. But it would be like getting Ted Turner to sign your Allspark Almanac.

    Get him to sign a favorite issue of Spider-man for you. Or the Spider-man Newspaper strip, since he still works on that.

    Sounds like a waste of a poster.

    Get him to sign something he actually worked on.

    well you're gonna do whatever you want - most people who start advice threads have a preferable answer in mind already. but seriously it's like having christian bale sign a Batman '89 poster because he also played Batman.

    If you're dead-set on using one of the posters, I'd say the 84 cast one. Marvel was more involved at that stage.

    Thanks Aernaroth, I ended up buying that one any ways as I agree it's where it started and it looks awesome as a early 1980's poster any ways.

    I've been at conventions and seen people ask celebrities to sign things they had nothing to do with, and it's always an awkward, uncomfortable moment. I thought it would be nice to spare you (and Stan Lee) that, but oh well. I'm sure he's used to it by now, anyway.

    I dont think he will be weird by it at all, marvel productions worked on the cartoon and it was a marvel comic to start off with.
