    I’m looking for a poster of G.M. Egglestons transformers art from G1. There are a couple originals prints that go for hundreds online but I can’t understand how it’s never been reproduced even on a smaller scale. I would even take a high res digital and print myself but I can’t even find that. Even the Chinese print to order KO posters don’t exist. If anyone can help me get a digital copy or a link to where I could purchase a repo or ko that would be awesome.

    It is an awesome poster. I am actually looking for an original, authentic vintage version of this print (in good shape!), but there are listings in eBay that sell this poster for 15 bucks, so for that price those MUST be reproductions!

    Thanks! Just found a 16x24 reproduction for cheap. Fingers crossed the file they are using for production is high resolution. A lot of these people just blow up any image they find online and call it good.

    Isn't that the cover of the sticker album from 1986?

    Yes!

    The repo poster I bought off eBay was pretty low res. So I’ll keep looking I suppose.

    Not sure if it's much use, but here's a scan of that. It's seen better days, but nothing that couldn't be touched up and fixed in Photoshop with a little bit of time and patience. Don't know if I can attach the full 600 DPI scan?

    I used to have that poster. I got it at Universal Studios in California, back around '84-85. They were running a promotion where they were giving away free G1 Insecticons upon entry, but by around 10 AM they had run out. So they distributed this poster instead, and it was up on the wall of my room for a number of years. Unfortunately, it ended up getting thrown away during a move. :(

    I have this picture on a Trash Can from the 80s ! Still in good condition. Its in my boys room now

    I love the picture , it feels like a movie poster that was the precursor to the 86 movie
