Hi all, As you're probably aware, noted TF book writers Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster were guests at Auto Assembly over the weekend - as an extra treat for visitors, they put together a presentation of seldom-seen TF artwork dug up from Hasbro/TakTom/etc archives. Most of this has only ever been seen once before (if at all!) in public. I'm sharing these on the basis that there was no 'no photos' policy, and that Jim & Bill acknowledged that people would be putting photos up on the net and had no objections to this... First up is this, believed to be the first piece of Japanese G1 artwork ever made, for the publication 'Comics Bon Bon': Made for TV Magazine, a kids' puzzle: (I've tried it, it's difficult for a kids' puzzle ) Next up, from TFTM, is a planetary scale guide: L-R, Unicron, Lithone, Moonbase 1 & 2, Cybertron, Quintessa and Earth! Interesting to see that Earth is actually quite massive compared to Cybertron. A matte background from one of the G1 cartoons, I can't remember which one but I suspect it's Japanese: Next up, two pieces of Japanese lader-disc (LD does not stand for Lucky Draw in this case ) box set artwork, from Studio Ox: Reference art, this time the interior of Gaia from BW2 (prior to the Earth retcon): Cybertronian chess! Moving onto BWN, artwork for the Cybertron fleet: Here's a closer look at the nearest ship - looks familiar! Early concept art for RiD's TAI: And into the Unicron trilogy, with some concept art for Megatron & Tidal Wave's combined mode: Here's concept art of a VERY different Armada Unicron: Unicron as Cybertron's moon, very much as it appeared in the cartoon: Ideas thrown around for Unicron's head to be left orbiting Cybertron: Reminiscent of the Unicron head included with Cybertron Primus! Blackarachnia artwork from the pitch document made for Animated: Blitzwing, from the same: Apologies for the sometimes blurry photos, the light on the stage wasn't too great and the flash was ineffective at that distance, but I hope folks have enjoyed these pics.
