Just a quick reminder - Acid Free Gallery will be in attendance at Wizard World Philly this weekend (booth 555), and with them will be several new prints. They will have the previously seen Soundwave print with a limited edition variant, a Dinobots print, along with a new Starscream and Screamer variant. Previous prints will be available as well.

We hit up WW Philly on Thursday and checked them out, take a look at pics from their booth. The Soundwave print is 24x36, so it really has a presence when seen in person. Check them out after the jump!

I'm guessing they are a sponsor for this site.

And finally, Acidfree Gallery has unveiled their last print for Wizard World Philadelphia! Its the Dinobots!!



Again, these are exclusives to the Con opening May 30th. They usually list whatever left overs they have online after the show. They will have 3 Transformers prints in all at the show including a Soundwave one and the Starscream one unveiled today.

not that i know off... I like art prints and i'm just sharing the info with other TF Fans who may enjoy limited arts prints as well. These are usually limited to around 100 or so depending on whether it's a variant or not. Variants get a smaller print run than standards. I dig them...i don't have the wall space for them all, but that doesn't stop me from buying them all.

Very nice!

Dinobots similar to on this art, so on the Diaсlone Dinosaur-Robo.

Nice, got to check it out that booth when I get there.

My mistake for posting all this in the Soundwave thread already yesterday. I thought all the images were related enough and it would be on the first page of that thread so I posted them all together here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transf...ml#post9413904 *le sigh*

Not bad, but no Tom Whalen either.

Kind of lame that Phillips used the inaccurate MP-03 mold as his model, too.

Am I the only one that finds these posters really busy? I find it hard to focus on the character with all this filler floating around them. Sometimes less, is more, a lot more.

MP-03 for the Starscream poster, complete with hip kibble? Really? But then the hip kibble disappears in the side view.

I dunno, the Air Show and Car Rally posters were great, but these are just toy still lifes surrounded by super busy graphic design.

Funnier than that the artist rightly ommitted the forearm kibble on SS but did not reconnect or move the null rays in. They are just floating beside the arms It doesn't make it look worse but i doubt it was a deliberate.

Those look pretty cool.

My criticism of the Dinobots poster:

1) Grimlock's alt-mode is disproportionately large compared to the rest of the dinobots, which

2) causes Swoop to be out of place amongst the rest of them. (If anything, Grimlock should've been placed further back in the line up and Swoop brought to the front.)

These look shitty.

I'm with you on that, I'm not a fan of these styles. I don't like the coloring, artwork, or general "busy-ness" of the prints. I'm pleased with just about anything G1, so I'm glad these are out there, but they are not my cup of tea.

I don't mind that (I think they're more "real life" scale that way), but there seems to be a lot of unused space, with regard to the overall composition of the piece.

These are fine as con souvenirs, though.

Nah, if they were scaled to "real life" Grimlock would not be so large (refer to the super-accurate scale chart):

Where are the pterosaurs?

That Starscream poster looks awesome, but these issues would just drive me nuts everytime I looked at it.

Free floating null rays and the mysteriously disappearing hip kibble is a complete headscratcher.

Edit: And what's with his shins pointing outward and crazy small wings in front facing view?

Easy, Grimlock was made as a full grown space t-rex while any non-scale Dinobots were made as younger space robot dinosaurs. Easy

Funny how some of the greatest TF artists of all time, who got robbed by "official" companies (Fleer, 88MPH, 3H Enterprises, Dreamwave), are now forgotten or almost begging for TF work, while Hasblow give these guys a license and a "fine art" status.

I rather commission Don or Guido for some fanart.

I would go pick one up for myself but the prices on these posters is higher than what I'm willing to pay for art.
