    Art from Maketoys Battle Tanker (1st Edition), Maketoys Yellow Giant Set C, and a Repro Labels 4x10 envelope insert / comic art mini poster added.

    Reprolabels shot is a cropped version of their website's splash page, but photographed from the insert / higher resolution than the web-image.

    Also added a folder of assorted Transformer art from online, all in the highest res. I could locate for each image. In some cases, I've brightened/increased the contrast on images so they're not quite so murky/grey looking.

    Love it! Do you happen to have the Giant A and B sets as well? I'd love those.

    Nope, just Yellow Giant set C. Green Giant didn't comewith one, oddly enough - just that spread I scanned from the instruction manual of their combined mode.

    Ive emailed Maketoys in English (and Japanese thanks to GoogleTranslate) to ask for jpgs of the originals. Hopefully they respond.

    The comic included in the 2008 Battle Rollar. It pretty much says that Battle Rollar is the upgraded form of ehobby Barrel Roller. It also oddly throws in some 2007 movie universe stuff, with 2007 Dreadwing as one of the Seekers.

    Found this one online. The instruction for Eric Chan's Custom "HOS01", the design he sold to Mastermind Creations as Knight Morpher Commander.

    Roller was sent from a G1-universal stream to a Movie-verse universal stream, hence the Movie-verse Prime and Dreadwing drones in the last panel. They needed him to hop universes since he was designed to work with a variety of Primes - MP, movie, and classics.

    Cool, I didn't know this figure was released yet. Everything from Maketoys at BBTS is languishing in pre-order state for months on end, including some replacment parts due to Maketoys being a bit late with their shipments. I guess some people have this figure from RobotKingdom or something already?

    I don't think this was posted here before, but the online comic for the Mech Ideas Soundwave-styled iphone 4 case has Soundwave mind controlling Barak Obama into allying the US government with the Decepticons! This explains a lot!
