    This is really cool. I'd love to have it as a collector, but I'm sure there's someone out there that this would mean the world to. I hope whoever wins this really treasures it.:)

    wow.... what an amazing piece of TF history.

    anyone who's more knowledgable of copyright/licensing laws etc...
    what would stop the potential buyer from scanning this and releasing it as a book? could it be a possibility?

    i'd personally love this, but a copy in the form of a coffee table book would be pretty cool too.

    :)

    You'd probably have to get a whole bunch of permissions from the entities who own the rights to the film, Transformers, and who did the art.

    It would be great to see a study somewhere of them, key moments, differences from what made it on film, etc.

    This would be great to have as a piece of memorabilia, especially for dyed-in-the-wool G1 fans. I know there were a fair couple of cut scenes from the final product.

    Makes you hope Hasbro would release something that collected art and storyboards from the movie...but I don't think they've revealed everything they're doing for TFTM's big 30th, yet!

    hey aernaroth, thanks for the response.... that's kinda what I was thinking too.

    it'd be great to see it published though :)

    This is an amazing piece and another example of the incredible materials that some fans have in their collections. Spacebridge has always had incredible pieces, and now someone else has a chance to own a piece of star history.

    This would be great to own. I expect it will reach very high figures before all is said and done! Anyone care to make predictions on the final price? Higher or lower than the G2 menasor auction from a few years back?

    So what do you guys think the final bid will be? I'm betting on about $11,000

    Welp, I'm out.

    This is where a classy person would wish the bidders good luck. I have no class, so I hope you all step on a Lego block with your bare feet.

    Me too, with the tag price you would think the seller would send it for free

    I'm kinda surprised how high its gone, I researched some other story boards, but guess Transformer Fans just have that much more money to spend :p 

    Good for you though man, that's a nice chunk of change! Congrats!

    Too much for my blood.

    Best of luck to the winner.

    Woah that's pretty awesome.

    I wish they kept it in but then that would disrupted the flow of the Touch fight.
