    I love Transformers and I like puzzles. They kind of transform too. Although it is quite extensive partsforming. Id like to collect them all and make a complete list of all vintage Transformers puzzles with pictures (pre Beast Wars era). They are nice and it would be sad to let them be forgotten. I havent seen some of their artworks used elsewhere.

    Sadly, I havent found much about them so far. So Im trying to put together the whole picture again. I have some, Ive found photos or mentions of some more, but there is probably even more of them out there I dont know about yet. They were made by MB Milton Bradley / MB International, Arrow Puzzles, Whitman Golden, American Publishing Corp. APC, Takara, Showa. Mostly in UK, Canada and Japan.

    Do you have some?
    Do you know anything about them or where I might find more?
    Who I should ask?
    Id appreciate any help, clue or bit of information.

    Thank you

    I don't have any of these, but I've seen the pictures before, and they look really cool. Interesting that these type of licensed items generally seemed to be based upon the toy design and box art, rather than the animation likenesses.

    i have the stand-up Starscream and Bluestreak (Blue Bluestreak!) ones from when i was a kid. their weapons pieces have had some repair since i used them as figures for a few years.

    thanks for this thread, this is the first time i've seen that stand-up Ultra Magnus. looks kind of cool.

    I got the Starscream Standup from Vintage Stock. I haven't opened it up yet to see if it has all it's parts.

    I always love seeing old G1 artwork from other parts of the franchise.
    I remember seeing one or two of these in toyshops as a kid.
    I still have a board game with the picture featuring Galvatron fighting Defensor.
    I love the first pic with Megatron, Snarl and the Jumpstarters.

    I haven’t seen any for sale or in person but the Stand up ones seem really cool to me.
