    Really hoping that label in the bottom left isn’t on the physical copy. It’s kinda tacky having the name of a piece of art on the art itself.

    Okay. This is kinda cool. I would just love to cover my walls in transformers art. It would be supremely nerdy.

    It’s an okay set. Matte finish, decent paper. Overall could have been a little more refined. I don’t particularly like the names on the prints especially on the card-backs, kind of an odd decision. But I paid $28 cause the corner was dented. Still think it’s fine at $40 certainly nice if this is your thing. Shitty 6S pictures sorry but here’s what you get.

    Do they really only have a cut portion of the 1984 back?? I r,emeber seeing the full version somewhere that was expanded even from the original toy boxes. Ditto for 1985...

    Thanks for the pics. Some rather random choices, but still pretty cool.

    What a weird set of images. No PMOP art? Where’s the 1988 back of box art??

    It was released in comic shops yesterday by Diamond. If you have an LCS swing, by there is a good chance it’s still widely available across the country. If you’re not in the US I don’t know how comics work.

    Ah not really what I was expecting. I thought the 10 lithos were all going to be the art work from the back of the boxes, similar to the the Action Master artwork shown.

    Thanks for posting the contents! I too was hoping it would be prints of the various package back battle scene paintings, but it looks like it only contains one and a half of those. A full image of the 1984 battle scene might still have made it worth the cost, but I have no interest in the half picture of it.

    Wow, I wonder who's terrible idea it was to stick the names in random locations in an ugly black box? Especially if the idea was for someone to put this on their wall?

    Most of the art choices are odd too. I can only imagine they held back most of the back of box artwork to have us buy future editions?

    Now this, this is what I want.

    Anyone have a higher-rez version, suitable for printing?

    That looks to be a photo of the original painting, cropped a bit.
