    Hey all. I remember receiving a paperback Transformers book as a kid, involving the Transformers in a road race. In one scene, Megs pops out of the roof of the mysterious black car and attempts to blast Ops.

    I remember staring at that scene over and over as a child, as I never SAW, much less OWNED the Megatron G1 mold. That arm cannon mesmerized me, and I remember fancying how that big robot fit into the black car(I assumed the black car was his alt mode).

    At any rate, I'd love a scan of the scene from said book for a possible custom!

    Thanks!

    That's the one, and I appreciate the effort and time involved!

    The picture still gives me the willies, though I didn't recall Cliffjumper being the target :)

    Good ol' Earl Norem. He can draw and colour some realy cute autobot cars, and still be able to do one of the bloodthirst-iest Conan pictures.

    I still have the book. I remember reading it over and over again. I was also mesmorized by the image of Megatron in the black car. I thought he was awesome. I also have the Battle for Cybertron book as well.

    Someone was using the pic from that book of the Autobots looking at a map as their sig for a while, with a hilarious caption that I don't recall at the moment.

    My younger bro Jon had this book. I think he might still have it in storage. I was just into my teens when TFs debuted and a book like this had me laughing the whole way through it, especially the pic of Megs driving a car. I mean, come on! He didn't even have a driver's license!
