Vintage TF Jigsaw Puzzles

I love Transformers and I like puzzles. They kind of transform too. Although it is quite extensive partsforming. Id like to collect them all and make a complete list of all vintage Transformers puzzles with pictures (pre Beast Wars era). They are nice and it would be sad to let them be forgotten. I havent seen some of their artworks used elsewhere.

Sadly, I havent found much about them so far. So Im trying to put together the whole picture again. I have some, Ive found photos or mentions of some more, but there is probably even more of them out there I dont know about yet. They were made by MB Milton Bradley / MB International, Arrow Puzzles, Whitman Golden, American Publishing Corp. APC, Takara, Showa. Mostly in UK, Canada and Japan.

Do you have some?
Do you know anything about them or where I might find more?
Who I should ask?
Id appreciate any help, clue or bit of information.

Thank you

Thank you, that is nice list of puzzles. Although mostly modern ones.



Ive got all european puzzles that I know of. But I dont know if there isnt more of them. Do you have a tip for a member here or known Transformers knowledge masters? Canadians? I dont know much about canadian puzzles (the line with Espionage, Strategy,...)
