    I haven't read anything about this until today, but IDW just released a collection of 10 lithographs of Transformers packaging. It's solicited on Previews for today, it's on the IDW website, but this is the only image I can find about it. Anyone have it in hand?

    Okay, this may be the first IDW purchase I've made in years. I absolutely love the old packaging artwork.

    Ten lithos for $40, so I'm guessing 11X17 or smaller.

    Kicking myself for not buying the Legacy book. Now it's nearly $200 on Amazon?

    Of course, I buy all the other books which tank, and the ONE I don't buy skyrockets. Figures.

    I came in here to make the same joke. But kidding aside, the G1 art is beautiful yet surreal at the same time, if that makes sense. It always felt classier than most toy box art of the time.

    I wish they'd release large movie poster sized versions of all the classic boxart battles.

    I just impulse bought this at the comic shop today, they gave me 30% off... Already have the Legacy Book but I can’t resist that back of the box art.
