    Actually, this is news. It's not everyday a piece of original Transformers art goes up for auction - and this is one of the most iconic ones of all.

    Holeeeee shit! That picture is awesome, I loved the box art as a kid. If only I had that kind of disposable income.

    $7500 and no bidders yet. I wonder as art, if people see this as an investment?

    Very cool, but unless I could pay in person, I don't think I'd bid on a item as high as this from a seller with 0 feedback. It also says you can the piece signed by the artist. I wonder if the artist is actually the seller then? Good luck to someone!

    (corrected)

    I'm a bit surprised at that being the opening bid, but it's not an unfair price for something like this (I'm sure it will sell for a fair bit more).

    Note to buyer: You WILL find a way to get high res scans to Botch!

    I'd love to get a framed litho in this size if prints were ever made, but for now the original is out of my range.

    Rather a shame that the far superior framed picture shown behind the print for sale isn't on auction. Always thought this was the worst of the G1 box backs.

    Such an awesome piece of history. The painting is amazing, but the perspective on that particular drawing is all wrong and gives me headaches.

    I'd be surprised if Hasbro or Goldner himself doesn't buy this piece of iconic art. It would look hella sweet hanging in his or anyone's office.
