DETECTIVE WORK
Admit it: Pat Lee's renditions of the Transformers has you drooling like you would if the Seibertron: Big Broadcast were held at the Playboy Mansion. Unfortunately for us, such is not the case. So we get Pat Lee's kickass artwork ... but you know what we've noticed here at SEIBERTRON? It sure looks like he's using the Japanese Bon-Bon comic book character designs as cannon for his anime style. We've spent NFL Sunday afternoon gathering various images, cropping, resizing, blah blah blah ... just so you can see what we're talking about. So quit looking at the pictures of Anna (hot, isn't she?) and check out the pictures of the Transformers below. After all, that's why we all check out SEIBERTRON right?

    1 - Blaster has toy face similar to that of his Bon-Bon design. 2 - Astrotrain is colored white or light grey with red decals on his chest. Similar to that of the Japanese figure AND the Bon-Bon design.

    3 - Devastator has eyes instead of the cartoon/comic visor, much more similar in design to his toy. 4 - Grimlock's dinosaur head is identical to the Bon-Bon version, far more detailed than US cartoon or comic.

    5 - Ironhide and Ratchet both have windshield wipers on their chests; a detail left off their designs for US cartoon and comic. 6 - Jazz has the open door look, a slick looking feature of this character which was ignored by US cartoon and comics.

    7 - Superion has his toy look which is identical to that of the Bon-Bon version. No shield on his face this time around! 8 - Ultra Magnus, like Devastator, is missing his visor also. He's given tradtional looking eyes - again, much like the Bon-Bon version.
