    Too bad that fence and blue tarp are covering up whatever is at the bottom. I'd like to see the artwork below the word "Graf Formers".

    kinda okay. i thought the designs we saw on shirts in the b-boy style way back fit the graffiti aesthethic better.

    Okay, I've never been able to read the stuff written like that. Are the words on the bay doors different TFs' names, or what? The bots themselves are pretty cool, though.

    Folks:

    Well, this should conclusively prove that those boxy, cartoony G1 designs are completely replaceable ephemera with no lingering images in anybody's memory, forgettable and forgotten.

    (Kidding. That's a really nice Megatron. I always preferred a good slogan or bit of artwork to just name-tagging)

    What's really odd is some of their subject matter. Prime and Megs, and even Mirage, I can understand (though they used a very toy-based Mirage design) but the gold robot looks a lot like movie protoform Prime with a different head, and the speaking robot is clearly Armada Dirt Boss. I'd never have expected that last one.

    Prime - Autobot to the end
    Megatron - Decepticon to the end
    Mirage - UNDECIDED (remember?)

    Maybe that is the signifigance of the three G1 guys? In regards to the green guy, he does kinda remind me of Protoprime and Crumplezone merged. And good eye on guessing Dirt Boss there. I totally see him now.

    PS: If I see any more Graf Formers, I'll stop and take pics. Be it the projects, MLK blvd, or whatever - this shit is hot. Later today I'll see if I can't get through that blue tarp...
