I've read all of Marvel US, and now I'm on to reading the Marvel UK run. Can anyone tell me why the heck the early stories use the actual toys (and toy/box art) for their pictorial basis, and not the animation models, or the Marvel US comic book likenesses? My best guess is that they had very little reference material, being the UK often got the shaft for licensed stuff, and was a secondary consideration to the US market for Transformers comics/toon/toys. some characters don't look that different (eg Starscream) but others like Brawn look a bit horrific walking around on his spider legs. Megatron has his phallus in place, and Starscream seems a bit jealous. So if anyone has any insights, anything you can link to or talk about that would be great.
