TransFormers The Movie 1986 TOEI Preliminary Designs - Unicron, Galvatron, Arcee, Springer, More

Just up on eBay are a nice collection of TOEI artwork said to be from the original Marvel Productions of the 1986 TransFormers: The Movie. These are amazing of the character renderings by Toei Doga artists, much like they appeared on the movie screen. The images of the preliminary designs show different views for some of the characters, including Unicron, Galvatron, Kup, Arcee, Springer, Blur, Sharkticon, Wheelie, Hot Rod, and Junkion. Check out the details from the UK seller, bustatoons, as well as low resolution images from the eBay auction listings.

Acquired directly from Marvel Productions in 1989 (and stored in a warehouse in Los Angeles until I discovered a batch of them in 2018) this photo stat is one of many that shows early character models for the cast of Transformers: The Movie illustrated by the artists of Toei Doga. Marvel Productions would then make notes informing the Japanese studio of what changes were required to be made to these characters models and fax them over!
