Motto: ""What Would Sky Lynx Do?""
Weapon: Double-Barreled Solid Sonic Energy Blaster
Seibertronians, we have a very cool little piece of news for you. The Prop/Animation auction company Profiles in History has released the listings for their upcoming Animation-themed auction titled Animation And Disneyana, and the lots range from Tim Burton models to Disneyland employee costumes, and everything in between. Although those are some of the oddities of the line up, what the auction has plenty of is animation cells and other production artifacts from many classic examples of the genre, specifically from The Transformers original cartoon and Transformers: The Movie. These include a "Character Bible", with an original character model for every Transformer from the Sunbow cartoon, apparently packaged with a bio for each, listing strengths and weaknesses and characteristics. Other lots consist of colored cells of Metroplex and Trypticon battling, as well as scripts for the episodes "Rust in Peace" (or what would become "Cosmic Rust") "Grimlock's New Brain", "The Return of Optimus Prime", and, most importantly, the original script for the 1986 Transformers Movie. The Transformers lots actually come from the personal collection of G1 Production Coordinator Paul Davids!

There's too many amazing lots to list here, so take a look at some of the coolest of the cool below, but then check out the entire catalogue here!(Transformers begin on page 36) The auction takes place on the 9th of December, and you can bid online, so Mark your calendars!

Gah, there's so many cool things for sale. Going into writing this I just thought "Eh, it's a big catalogue, I'll just skip through to the Transformers section." but I got to about the Hannah Barberra stuff or the Peanuts cells before I had to stop and Look through all of it. I thoroughly enjoyed that from beginning to end. Just awesome.

I know this is way way way off topic, but those Lady and The Tramps cells and the concept art are unbelievable.

This has always been my mom and I's favorite movie, a major bonding point for us, and we've ammassed a bit of a collection of Lady and the Tramp merchandise (one of the original Lady stuffed animals and a minty 1955 Time Magazine ad for the movie are highlights) so these are super cool to me. I wish I had enough to maybe get one or two for her for the holidays.

I'd be facinated to know if anyone on here got their hands on any of the TF stuff, though.

Original Animation Cells for The Transformers G1 for Auction

Postby Va'al » Wed Sep 13, 2017 5:55 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
From fandom archivist and collector Jim Sorenson, we have a piece of news that may appeal to the more hardcore memorabilia collectors out there: an auction for small series of G1 Transformers animation cells, with all information listed below. Any bids should go via Sorenson directly, who can be contacted here, but take a browse of the images below!

One of my Transformers contacts has asked me to help sell a few G1 Transformers cells, so I figured I'd do this low-key. At present they have five for sale: Optimus Prime, Decepticons at Sherman Dam, Slag, Ratchet, and Ravage. The seller requests anonymity, so I'm acting as (unpaid) intermediary.

How this works is simple. If you're interested in any of these cells, just PM me your offer. (Note that, unless you live in driving distance from Hollywood, you're going to have to add 3% for paypal and another few bucks for insured shipping on top of your best offer, so price that into consideration.) After a week I'll pass on the best offers to the seller. That might include conceivably include multiple offers on the same piece, if one person for example makes an offer on three of the five cells. If the seller agrees, you'll paypal the money to me and I'll ship you the cell.

They're all nice pieces, with backgrounds. I can authenticate that they're original Sunbow pieces from back in the day. Good luck to anyone whose interested!

EDIT -- because people are asking, there are currently bids in the low hundred dollar range for each piece. Because it's not an auction I don't want to get too much more specific than that.

Transformers The Movie 1986 Original Storyboards Reduction Master for Auction

Postby Va'al » Fri Dec 01, 2017 12:34 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
We were contacted directly by Transformers collector, archivist, and vault of knowledge Jim Sorenson, with another auction that may interest fans out there who seek for Transformers: The Movie memorabilia and artistic collectibles - such as the original animation cells or scripts previously newsed on this site - and this time, we have something fairly juicy for the right household: a Reduction Master edition of the storyboards for the animated feature!

The full information about the item (which has been confirmed as legitimate) can be read below, and the auction can be found here. If this is something that might interest you, happy bidding!

Transformers The Movie 1986 ORIGINAL STORYBOARDS Full set 1000 pages

This is an original set of storyboards for the 1986 Transformers Animated Movie. These were obtained from the Sunbow studio back in the late 1980’s and kept in a dry, smoke-free environment far from harmful UV. This is the “Reduction Master Storyboard”, meaning it is one of the earliest generations of storyboards made during the production the film. (Storyboards are generally illustrated quite large; to make them more portable, and thus more convenient to be referenced, they are REDUCED in size to fit four illustrations to a page. Hence, “Reduction Master”)

The storyboard script features deleted scenes and incredible production artwork. It also offers a fascinating glimpse at what’s NOT in the movie, as some scenes were boarded and then cut BEFORE the creation of the Reduction Masters, or updated by the artist to reflect changes in the flow of the film. The legacy of these changes are represented by a blank square labeled “Out”.

The storyboards are approximately 500 pages long, each page double sided. The storyboards were created to plan out the design of every shot in the film. (It does not include ALL the known deleted scenes as some had already been cut by this point) The set does have some minor wear & wear to the edges, it is over 30 years old! A rare opportunity to get an amazing Transformers holy grail item. The boards have been authenticated by noted Transformers expert Jim Sorenson.

Please note this is very heavy, shipping will registered mail, fully insured, due to the rarity and weight. Due to ongoing problems I will NOT ship to anywhere in Asia other than Japan or anywhere in South America or the Middle East.

$5000 and no bidders. This is something I would love to flip through once or twice, but cant say I would buy it to do so. This stuff really needs to be published for all to see instead of sold to some rich guy who locks it away for another 30 years. I think 2 hard cover volumes somewhere around $75 for the set would net this guy way more $$$ in the long run if he invested.
Too lazy to replace photobucket...I aint paying s**t !!!

Original Storyboards for Generation 1 Cartoon Episode "City of Steel" Up for Auction

Postby Qwan » Sun Dec 03, 2017 7:00 am

Motto: "There's no such thing as a no-lose situation, but if you try your hardest, you'll lose the least."
Weapon: Hand-Mounted Lasers
Many of you may remember the original storyboards for 1986's Transformers: The Movie that went up for auction on eBay a couple days ago (the listing is still ongoing by the way, if you're still interested in checking them out)! Well now, from the same eBay seller, we have an auction of the original storyboards for 1985's Generation 1 cartoon episode City of Steel.

Aficionados of the old cartoon may recognise City of Steel as "that episode where Optimus Prime got disassembled and turned into a robot alligator", and the storyboards up for sale do indeed cover that scene, as well as other memorable moments (like Sideswipe wrestling Starscream's jet mode in midair) and other deleted or revised scenes that didn't make it into the final episode.

Check out some images from the eBay listing (and the item description) below, view the listing here, and place a bid if you're interested and have some money to burn! As always, if you have any thoughts feel free to let us know in the Energon Pub forums, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more Transformers news as it comes.

Transformers City of Steel Original Production Storyboards 1985

This is an original set of storyboards for the October 17th 1985 Transformers episode City of Steel, by Douglas Booth. These were obtained from the Sunbow studio back in the late 1980’s and kept in a dry, smoke-free environment far from harmful UV. These boards are hand-labeled Nelson, making this most likely Transformers producer (and AKOM studio owner) Nelson Shin’s personal copy. The storyboard features deleted and revised scenes, giving a rare glimpse into the production process of a three-decade-old cartoon episode. The boards have been authenticated by noted Transformers expert Jim Sorenson.

Transformers storyboards are incredibly hard to come by. They seem to turn up only every few years, and often sell for thousands of dollars. Don't miss out on this amazing opportunity! If you need any more information just ask. Lots more pictures below, take a look!

Please note this is very heavy, shipping will registered mail, fully insured, due to the rarity and weight. Due to ongoing problems I will NOT ship to anywhere in Asia other than Japan or anywhere in South America or the Middle East.

Man these are so cool to see. I may not be a fan of the actual cartoon, but I am a fan of the process.
So intense that these old Sunbow (former Marvel) guys just went to town on their boards with sharpies and rapidograph pens. Now that is just solid confidence in one's own skill. Those old guys are probably just like, "eh, it's a day job." :lol:

It's cool how comic book their layouts and compositions are. Neat to see how that got translated to the screen.

Fully agreed, I can't get enough of that Wheeljack face. In fact...
