I've always felt the back box art for 1988 was far and away the best TF packaging art. I remember seeing it as a kid on the back on one of the new toys and just being BLOWN away, not only by the fact that Optimus Prime was back, bigger and better than ever, but also just the level of detail and realism. Unlike any art before it, it really gave a realistic interpretation of the toys rather than looking like the toys were used as reference. Look at all the detail in Prime's joints...the robotic details in the knees and segmented figures. He looks like an Anime mech. I also love his proportions. I was disappointed to see the actual toy a little bit afterwards; he was so stocky and "fat"...even the character art on the front of Powermaster Prime made him look like that. Not the sleek, hyper-detailed machine on the back of the box! And the pretenders look cool too! Look at the energy waves as they come out of their shells...and notice how detailed the human AND robot faces are! This is truly a masterpiece. I wonder who did this...I imagine it was a Japanese artist, based on the incredible mech details alone, but I could be wrong. I have no clue. Anyone know? And anyone know who owns this amazing piece, the actual one, in the flesh? That'd be crazy if a member here actually had it!!
