    I'm asking because I thought it'd be really cool to see lithos made of the original battle scenes from the back of the G1 boxes. In particular the 84-86 scenes. The characters in the 84 scene look sort of like the movie designs, in that they appear to be illustrated directly from the toys (with some liberties being taken) and have a more alien look to them IMO. Do you think people would pick this stuff up based on it's nostalgic nature? I think this summer the TF fanbase is going to be hit with so much shit to buy, that something like this seems like a natural thing to throw out there. To be honest I'd be happy with plain old posters at Target or WM. They don't have to be editioned lithos, I just think they'd look nicer. Anyone else think so? word-boB

    I have always wondered this as well. My interest is in the DW litho w/ all the characters on it, and I mean all the characters. I thought that was a pretty cool concept and they did it well. But I can't quite make myself spend the money on a non-toy item.

    They sold well enough to make them pretty rare these days.

    How much is a good price to pay for the mega-lithos'? I see two versions for sale. Ones $50 and the 3 foot by 5 foot is $100.

    if the 3x5 is the 601 characters, then yeah, thats a pretty good price....how big is the other one, and whats the image on it?

    and seriously, KA's poster is awesome..not a litho, but awesome still...if i had the room for another poster, i'd probably get it, but with a mega litho, TFTM and a new TF movie poster, i just dont have wall space....hence why i am gonna sell my other TF posters....

    Ebay:
    I sent this store an e-mail about two weeks ago and still have not heard anything.
    I want to purchase a couple things from the store but I have not heard anything so it makes me worry about their service.

    When signed by Peter Cullen, they're a steal at ANY price!
