A very different take, perhaps, on the Transformers franchise, was brought to the stage and under the spotlight by Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster, in the IDW Publishing Transformers: Legacy book. Showcasing the art that adorned the packaging of the toys from the early Generation 1, 2 and their Japanese counterparts and continuations, the book has been extremely well received in the Transformers fandom (and outside of it), and you can hear the Twincast Podcast talk to one of its authors here, and read an interview here.

Here at Seibertron.com, we were able to contact one of those wonderful artists involved in the creation of the original pieces, and an unsung part of the face of Transformers in toy, iconic and pop culture: freelance artist and illustrator Mark Watts!

Transformers News: Interview with vintage Transformers box artwork artist Mark Watts
The artist in the studio, with Transformers: Legacy


Va'al - Mark, thank you for the opportunity to discover more about this side of the franchise. So how did it begin, were you approached by Hasbro? Or did you pitch work to them?

Mark - Back in 1985, many, many illustrations ago, I was called into my Agents office. In New York I was shown the Transformers toys fresh from China, some being Prototypes. I was working on a lot of kid toy boxes for Mattel, Kenner, Tyco and more also working on Movie posters I did the Movie Poster for Pink Cadillac staring Clint Eastwood. Some of the Transformers shown were being sold in China and had done very well. At that point I was given a Transformers Bible, top secret, to be kept under lock & key. It contained technical drawings of each Transformer including the placement of colors, logos, ect.

Va'al - Did you choose what to work with yourself, or were you assigned characters?

Mark - Originally I was given six to start with, they were to be used on blister packs for Autobots. Of the six toys, some I believe were Prototypes. I completed the drawings with forced perspective to make the toys more exciting and menacing.

Early Autobots!


Va'al - And how did you go about creating them, what methods and tools do you use?

Mark - This first set of six were painted in Dr. Martian Dyes and Luma Dyes, completely done in Airbrush with cut frisket to protect the area not to be spread. Cut tracing paper was used to move around when spraying to create a softer edge in the reflections. Later paintings were done with Airbrushed Acrylic paints. I like them all I paint in mostly with Acrylics, and occasionally Oils. In the beginning of my Illustration Career I used Airbrush almost exclusivity with - Dyes, Watercolor and Gouache then I switched to Acrylic. I also like Digital now it is faster and easy to change and correct colo,r of course when I started out in the late 70s everything was done by hand, no computers. The Software I use is Photoshop, Painter, Illustrator, Lightwave, Vue. Also I use a combination of 3D rendered and wacom tablet.

My objective on these illustrations in particular was to make them as reflective as possible, like car paint--exciting with a lot of reflections.

Newer projects by Mark, returning to car illustration


I completed the set of six and all were very happy with the results. The rest is History, and I continued to work on Transformer art for many years.

Va'al - That sounds fantastic, you almost defined a whole style and even the franchise itself, in a way! How many pieces did you create for Hasbro?

Mark - I did the Original Artwork on about 45 Boxes and Blister Packs for the Transformers Toys when they 1st came out in America in around 1985 and on. In the New Transformers book: Legacy The Art Of Transformer Packaging - Pages that my Art is on: 7,14,15, 30, 34, 35,82, 83, -( 283 Eagle Eye ) - ( 242 Ram Jet ) - ( 264 Reflector ) 295.

Transformers News: Interview with vintage Transformers box artwork artist Mark Watts
The Big Purple himself


You never know when a toy will take off like Transformers did and become such a sensation. It was my pleasure working on all of the illustrations for the Transformers packaging, the toys were enjoyable and I am sure they were a part of many fond childhood memories. The Art itself feels like Pop Culture Art to me now. It was a real pleasure to be involved.

Va'al - I can tell! So what happened to the originals? Any plans for them, or anything based on them?

Mark - I have decided to put on sale Signed prints of my Transformer Art on www.markwattsstudios.com. I am offering them on Canvas, Aluminum and Paper, and all Prints are made direct from the the Original Art of these Great Iconic Transformer Toys from 1985, 1987 and beyond…

Transformers News: Interview with vintage Transformers box artwork artist Mark Watts


All 29 prints [featuring Costructicons, Stunticons and Menasor, Jetfire, and much more - V] can be found on the Store section of my Web Site.

Blast from the Combiner past!


Va'al - That is some great stuff, and quite topical with the new IDW/Hasbro event and lines of Combiner Wars! What else do you see yourself doing now and in the future?

Mark - I am planning on mass market my Illustrations on prints and products, I have some more Ideas for products I want to Patten. I also have many more Illustration Ideas floating around in my head and on sketch pads that I will be doing right now I kind of have my Business hat on for a little while longer. As for life, I just had my 1st Grandchild, Crew Winsor Watts. I am enjoying him and my 3 Children, Justin, Britney, Amber, they are all dong great and are very artistic as well. My Wife is a Nurse, she enjoys being a Nurse and is going to start working on a Children's Book that I think she is going to let me Illustrate them.

Va'al - Well then, best of luck to all of you, and in your sales too! Thank you for the chat, Mark.

Mark - Thank you as well for the Interview, Alex.

Mark Watts can be found at his website www.markwattsstudios.com, and is available for prints, commissions and car illustration art. Head over here for more about him and his work!

Thanks to fellow Seibertron.com staff member, ScottyP, who shared this link with us, we can now get a small taste of what's to come with the Combiner Wars comics that will be included with upcoming figures. To be specific, what will be packed in with two of the Wave 3 figures, Rook and Streetwise.

Here's what ScottyP had to say:

ScottyP wrote:The official Transformers site has posted two free "Combiner Wars" comics: http://transformers.hasbro.com/en-us/co ... ars/comics

While these are CW pack-in comics, it's really RiD 33 (being packed in with Streetwise) and RiD 34 (with Rook).


It's neat that Hasbro's decided to share these with us, even without a purchase, so go give 'em a read and then come on back to the forums to share your thoughts with the rest of us and keep an eye for the new figures that come with these issues.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. This episode features your always exceptional, sometimes sober host, ScottyP, the very metal xRotorstormx, dark horse Megatronus, and the ever winsome RodimusConvoy13.

Oh, and this pretty popular author you may have heard of stops by: James Roberts! Sit back and enjoy as Va'al and Scotty P cut up, hang out, and wax philosophical with this very special guest.

Episode #113 "Signal to Noise" is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

Spoilers Abound! This episode contains spoilers for all of the following: Episodes 1 and 2 of the new Robots in Disguise cartoon, Transformers #39, and More Than Meets The Eye #s 1-39. This is your one and only warning.

First we change things up with some long awaited cartoon talk. The first two episodes of Robots in Disguise have premiered, and most of the Twincast crew has seen most of the episodes. Where does RID fall in the constellation of its many cancelled predecessors? Underbite ate WHAT? Listen and find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
Bumblebee doesn’t always speak, but when he does, he’s Batman Beyond.


Something momentous is coming. Wait, no, it’s already here: Combiner Wars #1 (otherwise known as Transformers #39). Sit back as we discuss Starscream’s bodies, wide-eyed and bushy-tailed Swindle, our varied and shifting opinions of Livio Ramondelli’s art style, and more.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
Heeeeeeeeeere’s Offroad!


Then, we have a very special treat for our listeners – an interview with none other than James Roberts of More Than Meets The Eye fame.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
We insisted he do the interview with the jacket on.


If you just came here for the interview, you can find it at 47:30 of the file, wherein our brave host Scotty P and devious News-Staff-slash-resident-comics-expert Va’al inherit the wind:

  1. What schemes has Roberts unleashed in his travels back to pre-war Cybertronian society?
  2. Time travel paradox?

    Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
    Paradox schmaradox… at least until a certain briefcase is involved.

  3. Remain in the Light was an awesome arc and powerful story, made more powerful by… prose?
  4. Roberts shows us his love for music, and for the growing More Than Meets the Eye community.
  5. Which (T-Rex) characters should we expect, which are gold, and which are big ole black holes?
  6. The Decepticon Justice Division finally returns – oh, the humanity, err *ahem* morality.

    Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
    Bird, Dragon, or Bird-Dragon? Why not both Zoidberg?

Our sincerest "Thank You" greetings to Mr. Roberts for lending his time to the show, and for the amazing content at that! We hope you all enjoy listening to the interview as much as we did conducting it.

After that, we return to our traditional comfort zone: upcoming Transformers toys. Images of the new, simplified Cyber Series sub-line took us all by surprise. What do we think of these 7” figures? Are they a welcome addition to the Generations fold, or more of the same? This is also the part where you learn another terrible Twincast secret: We don't know how to read good, and want to learn to do other things good too.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
Just don’t take away our Generations, man.


Platinum Edition Blitzwing and Astrotrain are Awesome and/or the Worst Thing Ever. Is Platinum Blitzwing an homage to Shattered Glass or Flywheels? What’s with that orange on Astrotrain? Will the Twincast crew be picking these up? While we decide, check out Seibertron’s awesome galleries of G1 Astrotrain and Blitzwing.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
Alpha Bravo, is that you?


In other Platinum Edition news, the long awaited Coneheads are being reissued. Now this is something the Twincast crew can get excited about… if the price is right. New Platinum set, same question: will the Twincast crew be picking these up? Better yet, can you spot the differences between these newbies and the originals? Check out Seibertron’s galleries of G1 Thrust, Dirge, and Ramjet to try your hand (or rather, your eye).

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
Sticker shock?


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
No complaints. Really!


And remember, send any complaints, rants, and cease & desist orders to IHateRazorclaw@seibertron.com before the next episode.

Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!

Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!

Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.

Courtesy of fellow Seibertron.com member AzT, we have confirmed listings for the Hasbro Platinum Edition Reissue Transformers G1 Insecticon set from Kmart.com for $79.99! We've already seen these show up at Toys'R'Us in Canada, but if anyone else in the North American area waited out on the prices, this may be the news piece for you. You can check them out below in some official photography, and compare them to the pictorial review here!

The Insecticons are among the most devious of all Decepticon allies. Pure mercenaries, they will join the battle only when it serves their own purposes, and usually only if they are offered large stacks of Energon cubes in return for their allegiance. Insecticon Bombshell, Kickback, and Skrapnel were the first Insecticons found on Earth, and the first to be lured to the Decepticon cause.

This sneaky trio of Insecticons figures are just the mercenaries for your Transformers adventures! Your Skrapnel, Insecticon Bombshell and Kickback figures all have unique powers, and they all come with blasters and Energon cubes to pay them for their attacks. Whether they’re in insect mode or robot mode, the Transformers action will be epic!
