    Hi all

    Just thought I would give a sneak peak at my panel at Botcon

    "From Drawing Board To Toy"

    This panel will show you the history of making the G1 & G2 Transformers. Focusing on the prototypes of Generation 1 and 2 toys, see the changes they went through from concept sketch to prototype to final toy. Featuring over 100 never before seen pictures of Generation 1 and 2 prototype toys and packaging.

    PS - The best stuff in NOT in the preview!

    See you at 3PM on Saturday!

    Enjoy

    Cheers

    Paul

    I'd love to get full color photos (in detail) of the G2 combiners and I'd repaint the originals to make my own set.

    Hey

    Unfortunately pictures/filming will not be allowed at this panel, however 80% of the material in this panel will be featured in 2 new websites launching before the end of 2006 - So everybody will get a chance to see this material!

    And yes the "hot dog on wheels" is Wheelies arm . . . . . but didn't Wheelie have larger rear wheels . . . . . ?

    See you at Botcon

    Paul

    That's the clearest photo of a part of G2 Go-Bot Rumble in final colors I've seen so far.

    And VSA... Heh. Don't tell me you actually tracked down someone who owns it? :D 

    Why did you cout out the silhouette of the G1 Arcee prototype's vehicle mode? The images have been around for a while.

    Heh, and the early G1 Thrust prototype colors. :D 

    The old catalog concepts of Diaclone Starscream and Wheeljack...

    The Black Zarak design from your old site...

    Neat collage. :)
