After several small delays, Transformers: Legacy – A Celebration Of Transformers Package Art Book release date has been pushed to next year.
Targeted initially to release mid this year to coincide with the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers Franchise, the book was to showcase the packaging art of the Transformers toys throughout the first 10 years.
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 unparalled 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.
Hardcover: 300 pages
Publisher: IDW Publishing
The book’s new release date is January 13, 2015
