    Are those costumes? Starscream looks kind of freaky.

    Never seen the poster anywhere, but I HAVE seen that art on a t-shirt, if that's of any help.

    I've seen the poster before somewhere, I also think the UK G1 Marvel comic gave away a version of that.

    Bingo! Just came to me as I was typing: ask Gingerchris, I think I may have seen him post one, could be wrong though.

    As for the costume's, who's that between Jazz and Grimmy? Bluestreak?

    I bought a poster like that last year off of eBay for about 15$.
    Think it was a re-print of some kind.

    IIRC when I asked the same question about the same poster, the image was part of the original press kit for the show. I know my brother got one of them from a friend whose mom worked at the local syndicated station at the time the show ran.

    Edit: Just looked at the Studio Tour link, and am :lol  at the advertisement that has Your Kid being a tug-of-war rope between Jazz and Screamer! I wonder what happened to the costumes.

    If memory serves that artwork was used on the cover of the first UK TF sticker album (also given away with the UK G1 TF comic). You probably remember it from that. :)  I should imagine it was used for quite a lot of other things back then as there probably wasn't a lot of 'epic' TF artwork beyond just the art from the figure boxes to stick on stuff. [Just seen Moonscream's post above about it being an image from the press kit so that makes sense] We probably just didn't get a lot of those products over here as I don't remember seeing it beyond just the sticker album and a poster I've got of it kicking about somewhere. It might've cropped up on a DVD or VHS TF cover too.

    That picture with the different costumes is creppy. I love it!

    Thought I'd seen you post a pic of it. Had forgotten about the sticker album, I've got two of them somewhere. I'm in the process of re-organising, I'll come across them sooner or later!

    Complete either of those albums? :) 

    Just had a poke back through my Photobucket account and there's only two G1 TF posters in there. It might've been the movie poster comic you saw (second picture).

    One of them definitely is, think the other one is also, would need to dig them out.

    Poster-wise, I have a shocking memory sometimes!

    I've still got just about all my G1 posters, including some really great ones given away with the UK Marvel comic. I considered chucking up a thread of photos of them but I know the storage with them in is right at the back of - well - all my TF storage. Bum.
