When it comes to Transformers action figures, one of the most important things is the Packaging Art. Some may be good and some bad, but as with any other thing, the packaging gives us our first impression. And “first impressions” are important. So, why not take a trip down memory lane to remember the moment when you first saw your favorite Transformers toy? And that’s exactly what IDW Publishing is planning as a way to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers Franchise next year.
There is a new Amazon listing for a book named “Transformers Legacy: A Celebration of Transformers Package Art“. Set to release May next year, the official description is as follows:“Remember the thrill of tearing open a gift on Christmas morning, discovering a brand-new Transformer in a shiny new box? While the toys were amazing in their own right, what made the packages stand head-and-shoulders above the myriad competing action figures on shelves was the stunning box art. Transformers: Legacy collects hundreds of beautifully airbrushed paintings from the iconic first decade of The Transformers. Hasbro, Takara, and private collectors opened their archives, yielding an unparalleled level of quality. Essays and interviews from the original illustrators give unprecedented insight into the process behind the art. This book is chock-full of extras, including never-before-seen artwork from toys that never were, original design sketches, catalog artwork, and more.”
