Old School Transformers Box Art

G1 Box Art All 560x240One of the coolest things about the original series of Transformers back in the 80’s was easily the great box and poster art that came with nearly each toy. I say nearly each because the little single blister-pack toys generally had just the card art. Still cool, but not quite as pronounced as the bigger box art from the more deluxe toys. Anyway, there is a wonderful site out there that features almost all of the amazing US and Japanese art from all the main sets of the Transformers right here: botchthecrab.com. You really ought to check this place out, especially if you are, like me, a big fan of the Generation 1 Transformers. Here are just a few samples of what we children of the 80’s remember as the coolest (aside from the toys) parts of the Transformers. Apparently they are officially called “Box Battles” :
