    I went to Universal studios back in 1984 when they had the live Transformers show there. Anyway, when you entered through the front gates you were given a free Transformers poster. It was the very first Transformers poster ever to my knowledge. I use to have it....But I lost it a few years ago. Does anyone have a picture of this. It has Optimus Prime holding his rifle in the air in the center with a picture of Cybertron at the top. It said Transformers at the bottom. Prowl,Bumblebee, and Starscream transforming were also in it. I saw it on ebay once... I really would like to buy one.

    Not the same one. That same image was on the back of most of the G1 box packaging.

    It's not the mail-away Spaghettios poster either.

    I think Macross7 found the correct one. Seems like I remember reading about it before. But you might want to send a PM to board member Alphie, Born_2B_Alive!. He has one of the definitive collections of TF odds and ends: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=137048 And chances are, if he doesn't have that poster, he'll at least have info for you on it.

    I don't think that poster was ever reused- it features Optimus Prime in front of a Decepticon logo. That seems like a bit of an oversight.

    This image was used as a front cover for a TF sticker album. I think it was made by the "Panini" company.

    The same artwork is also used for my crappy (but unfortunately official) German TF:TM DVD.

    It was also used as part of the promotional packet to get stations to buy the show.

    I used to have one myself.

    I've never seen that as a poster, but I HAVE seen it as the crest on a yellow tshirt. Oddly enough, I'm wearing it right now. MTCtoys has it.

    If you look at the backdrop that Megatron is sitting against it looks just like the background in the poster that Macross7 is displaying. So, probably is the same one.

    Okay, you're a nitpicker. :tongue: 

    I noticed that too, but I do enough nitpicking around here already, so I thought I'd give someone else a chance.
