    Art by TVMagazine
    Provided by Transformers: the Comics
    Scanned in by DrSpengler

    Alright, TVMagazine used to do bits of art for various episodes of the Transformers cartoon. The pieces were included as page-fillers in the Transformers: the Comic graphic novel. I scanned in all the art from SRL, 2010 and the one pic for the Rebirth. They're all denoted by episode title and the issue/date they were originally published.

    Interesting Notes:

    *The art for "Starscream's Ghost" shows Starscream frightening Blitzwing in the Decepticon Crypt instead of Octane. Wah?

    *The Transformers the Movie art was released in the April and July 1986 issues of TVMagazine. They recap the events of the movie (which wasn't released in Japan until 89) and one of them quite clearly shows Megatron becoming Galvatron. So that's just one more nail in the coffin for that silly "Megatron is not Galvatron in Japan" rumor.


    There was more art for Headmasters and Masterforce, but I'll get to that later. But for now, enjoy

    Thanks for sharing,

    I wish IDW would re-print stuff like this that was never available in North America instead of old Marvel issues which most folks have...

    The art? Certainly! TVMagazine and Comics Bom Bom were amazing.

    The stories? Er...I don't know if most people would want to pay money for those things. See my translated manga for details.

    I think the issues of the manga might make good back-up stories in something like Generations, though, and would definately be a more attractive selling point than "Read Transformers #7...Again!"

    My God, you must have telescopic vision. I've had the book for two years and I've NEVER noticed that before!

    Awesome!

    Sorry to double-post, but for some reason it wouldn't let me edit my own post. The Hell?

    Anyhow...

    Apparantly, the plane in question is actually a Rattler.

    I wonder if Wild Weasil's in there...

    Perhaps in the original script for Starscream's Ghost, Blitzwing was written but replaced with Octane (the toy they were tryna sell at the time).
