I love this design (Simpathetic Robot - SS 9023), possibly the most endearing 80’s toy robot I’ve seen since the Tomy Verbot. The tried-and-true technic of time lapse photography was in full effect for the POP packaging.

I’m not sure if this product was ever actually released but what it promised was HUGE for 1985 robot toys!

Transformers Legacy: A Celebration of Transformers Package Art

by Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster
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 (May 6, 2014) Language: English ISBN-10: 1613779437 ISBN-13: 978-1613779439

I can’t wait for this book release!
