New Pieces of Original Transformers Packaging Artwork Available for Auction!

{mosimage} If you've got a ton of money sitting around, now's your chance to own a rare piece of Transformers History!  Original paintings done as toy box character art have been posted on ComicLink.Com!  According to the descriptions:

This packaging art was uncovered a decade ago by a single collector with over 35 other Transformers box art paintings and it has remained in his private collection since. To date less than 70 Transformers Generation One original box art pieces have been found of the hundreds that were created.

Traditionally Hasbro would hire different advertising agencies to provide packaging artwork who then commissioned freelance commercial illustrators to design and provide final art, like S. Daly who painted many of the early Box art graphics from 1984-1986. These pieces were painted using a mixture of gouache, watercolor, and airbrush on thick illustration board. This is one-of-a-kind original on 19" x 19" art board with an image area of approximately 15" x 14". Truly a piece of Pop Culture, Comic Book, and Toy history, it is rare for any original Transformers packaging art to come up for sale."

Talk about rare!  Check out the auctions for Metroplex, Air Raid, Astrotrain, Blitzwing, and several Micromasters!  Thanks to Marc for the heads up!
