I had this as a kid!

I loved this book, even if the heads were kind of off (why does Kickback have a mouth and Beachcomber not)? It also hammered the phrase "right hand man" into my head, since honest to god, they kept repeating it so many freaking times.

It also stuck with me because Kickback was the first TF I ever got, along with Scattershot, back in 1989 at a Play It Again. (Remember those? In an eBay era, those would be useless, but they were still awesome.)

Ooh. I have this book and some others somewhere. Agreed, the art was awesome.

Transformers used to be incredibly beautiful. Some of these images are haunting and naturalistic. Not like the computer vomit nightmare it's devolved into.

Stoner Haze

Straight out this is some of the best art I've ever seen for the Transformers, beautifully done and I like the art design change, reminds me of the Ralph McQuarry art for Star Wars, it looks familiar yet eerily dreamlike.

But let's be honest this also looks like some stoner's haze, heck even the robots looked stoned out of their mind! Lay off that pipe Bumblebee and open up the window!

Brillant!
