    Those are gorgeous. Very solid and rich.

    The only things I don't like are the rock reflections in Prime's chest because it looks like the rocks are actually in there (maybe he's a fishtank). And the perspective of the Decepticon logo on Megatron's chest looks off. Megatron's mouth looks a little like he got it from a Power Ranger's helmet. The bottom of Optimus' helmet/cheek vent (left in the picture) looks a little off too.

    But apart from those few things, me likee.

    I disagree but only because of the given angel and perspective of the characters. As far as the rock formations in prime's chest, I suppose the artist could have made the formations a little more off color to show it's a reflection. As far as Megatron's face goes with the whole power rangers helmet, I suppose that could be true provided the artist wasn't going for a masculine visage to begin with, and in which case it's considered a coincidence.

    But besides all that these look $#@%! AWESOME!

    i agree on all 4 counts.. they're definitely gorgeous, solid, and rich.

    but, yeah, the first thing i noticed about prime was that he looks like terrarium.

    as for megatrons decepticon insignia.. you're definitely right. the right side of the symbol is clearly higher than the the left side. there's no two ways about it, but it's still minor.

    as for the power rangers lips.. yes, i totally agree.

    my biggest problem are their necks. i know that they're an artists interpretations.. but they just seem wrong. i would think that the side muscle type things would've looked better as pistons... they just make them look rather vulnerable. but like i said, it's an artists interpretation. it's just not the way i would've done their necks.

    but still, they look great.

    For anyone that hasn't purchased a print from acid free gallery, the quality is simply amazing. Most of the prints are limited runs so the prices may seem a bit steep, but if you like the artist, you will not be disappointed with the purchase.

    I've purchased a few prints from them and they are some of the best quality I've seen.

    I bought a set of the metals, couldn't help myself. $460 out the door hurts, but I have 25+ pieces of TF artwork and none of it was on metal and something just seemed wrong about that. :)

    I thought these would have sold out fast with such limited production run. I guess it is limited to US and Canada though.
