    Hi everyone,

    I recently received this poster as a house-warming gift, and hoping someone can point me in the direction of learning its history.

    *First off, I apologize for the image, it was actually the best angle I could manage.

    I was surprised when I got this poster of G1 figure box art, not so much by the figures in it, but due to the missing characters. For example, it has box art images of Whirl, Topspin, and Twin Twist; but its missing Sideswipe, Red Alert, Warpath, and Roadbuster. For the Decepticon's, it has both sets of Insecticon's with the exception of Bombshell, Chop Shop, and Venom. (Also was surprised it included Devastator, separate from all 6 Constructicon's)

    I guess my question is, was this a matter of which characters the artist had available to look at, or just a certain list they needed to include?

    When in doubt, start with the artist, publisher, and publication date that should be on the poster somewhere.
