Here are 2 items that share the same 'cover' - this one below
Back in 1984 / 1985, every Friday at 6.30pm, Channel 5 in Singapore would flash the above image for maybe 2-3 seconds before it played the opening theme song of the Transformers cartoon and then that week's episode would commence!
For me, that image above represents the start of that week's exciting Transformers episode, where new and exciting things happen, where I get to see and meet new robots which are thrown into various life-threatening situations. It therefore is little wonder that the above image is extremely close to heart for me.
The above image is actually the cover of a Panini sticker book featuring the Transformers. All kids in the 80s must know what Panini is, no need for further introductions.
This is the back cover.
This is the insides. The book on the left is blank and mint. The book on the right is complete with all the stickers pasted in. A big thank you to valkyrie_76 for gifting me this 2 books, very very appreciated~
The next item that features that image is the FHE Promotional Poster, a very large thing! See below.
This is such a lovely poster and showcases the art perfectly.
Close up of Ravage
Close up of Starscream
Close up of Laserbeak and Soundwave
Close up on Optimus Prime
Close up on Jazz, Mirage, Sunstreaker (robot modes) and Optimus Prime, Hound and Bumblebee (vehicle mode)
The artist is "GM Eggleston". Tip of the hat to you!
Look, even the Ark is in the poster!
