    Where can I find high quality scans of those awesome fight scenes on the backs of old toy boxes? Sadly, I've never come across them.

    I have some G1 boxes, but comparing them, each scene has been cropped in different ways. Does anyone know how/where to find the FULL picture? I'm especially curious about the original G1 pic, with Optimus Prime in the lower-left corner. Is there any particular toy box (or other paraphenalia) that is known as showing the full picture?

    When I was a kid I took a poster sized peice of construction paper and tried to recreate the '84 box art. I started with Optimus' head, and quit after that. It looked OK, though.

    I think the old box art was how I learnt to draw ( then later comics ).

    I have a lot of the box art in storage but I was recently think I should just get rid of it. Is it worth keeping box art?

    Speaking of fight scenes, I like the fight scene on the back of all Cyberverse Prime toys. There are more Autobots than Decepticons in the picture to show the Autobots working as a team. Optimus Prime is slightly shorter than Megatron in the picture to show the Autobots are fighting a team more powerful than themselves.
