    Another sample of remastered artwork for the reproduction technical specification card set from 1986.

    Kind of always bugged me that Motormaster was transformed wrong in the character art, so with some digital illustration and photoshop tweaks, Voila!

    I like this for art's sake.

    For the tech spec project, as a [potential] customer, I'd rather see the artwork unaltered (or at least with an option of having both). Some of the "mistransformation" quirkiness is actually one of the reasons I've always liked the box artwork.

    Regardless, you've done a good job :thumb

    I understand what your saying completely, but keep in mind that unaltered artwork would be the exact opposite of this projects goal.

    The goal from the beginning was to stay away from dead bang reproductions. So colors are tweaked to match the toys, some overpainting done when needed and framing of the character altered when appropriate. I am noticing, specifically with the '86 set that a lot of the art is VERY tiny, zoomed out to show the entirety of the art. However this doesn't really fit in with how the last two years were done, so there are some considerations made here and there for a better aesthetic as seen below.

    Original on the left, new on the right.
