Perhaps most relevant to his Transformers artwork, he drew all (except the one fill-in issue) of Marvel's take on their imported Japanese robot toy forebears, The Shogun Warriors, including the original Megatron! Though I know that can never legally mean anything in terms of continuity, I like to think the connection gave TF a sense of history long before the Quintesson or Primus origins were established.

Thank you Mr. Trimpe, and may you rest in peace.

Whaaaaaaaaat? Oh, man. I know him mostly for his work on the original G.I. Joe comics.

Rest in peace, Mr. Trimpe. Thank you for everything you drew.

So sad to hear the news when I logged in this morning, Herb was a sometime great artist, working on many a fanboy favourite comic book series, including our beloved Transformers and G.I. Joe.

Along with the work he did on Transformers, I loved his work alongside one of my all time favourite artists Barry Windsor-Smith on Marvels Machine Man! :D

He was an awesome guy and I feel fortunate to have had the honor to meet him back when I helped organized the montreal comiccon. I will cherish this drawing he did for me, forever.

Alot of my comic book diet in the 80's contained Herb Trimpe's artwork. For a while there I drew nothing but Transformers characters in my grade school sketchbook. I totally aped his shading style and poses to render all my characters. Sad to see this talented artist go.
Peace be with you Mr. Trimpe
