The Transformers: Webworld storyboard

Thanks to tfwiki mod Monzo, the Archive now hosts storyboards for Act III of The Transformers episode Webworld.

Co-written by comics legend Len Wein and Diane Duane, this episode sees Cyclonus make the reluctant decision to have his unstable leader Galvatron committed to psychiatric care on the planet Torkulon.  Only to find that the methods employed by his "carers" are far more insane than the Decepticon leader ever was.

Transformers The Movie: Floro Dery concept art and early model sheets

Comics legend and former Marvel Productions staff Romeo Tanghal recently uncovered copies of concept art and early model sheets from Transformers The Movie.  Much of the concept art, drawn by Floro Dery, was based on the second Ron Friedman script for the Movie.

Autobot City design

Moonbase One

Interiors of Ingestor (Unicron)

The model sheets include early designs for Arcee, Springer, Galvatron, Cyclonus and Wreck-Gar.  As well as the Movie design for the repaired, Decepticon-controlled Cybertron.

To view them all in detail and compare to the script that inspired them, head to: The Transformers The Movie page.
