TFsource have posted an on-going series of articles featuring the box art work on the Transformers Alternators line. G1 Transformers box art is now the source of great nostalgia for fans and collectors of this legendary toy line, and even though subsequent popular lines like Takara’s Masterpiece, Encore and Binaltech did not feature actual box art, Hasbro’s all-plastic Alternators had original box artwork in spades. TFsource are looking not only at the artwork used on a select group of toys from the Alternators line, but also at some of the original line-art and inks created by Hasbro’s talented pool of artists. Read the Alternators Artwork articles Part 1

E-Hobby released Exclusive Alternity A-01U Nissan GT-R/Ultra Magnus toy in Japan earlier this week. Included in the release was an Exclusive comic written by Naoto Sakal and illustrated by Hidetsugu Yoshioka. The comic is ten pages. I had a chance to read it, seemed interesting.

Looks like our friends on the other side of the Atlantic are finally getting their fix of Transformers Alternators Mirage. While the U.S. has enjoyed this figure for some time now, the U.K. guys are finally getting the Ford GT-based figure. The first evidence of the figure showing up there is an eBay.co.uk
auction. Will the U.K. be seeing anymore long-U.S.-forgotten figures? Hopefully, but only time will tell. Thanks to "Captain Modesty
