The ’88 Transformers are odd to me. They started using big areas of solid color depicted in plastic rather than paint (also the year they stopped having rub sign faction symbols to delineate real figures from knockoffs, a practice that would return for nostalgia’s sake years later). The face sculpts are really cool though, as seen in Quickmix and Quake. Good news part two is that you can get them pretty cheap (except Needlenose). I’m trying to concentrate on not missing an shadows in my recent pieces. A lot of the great Transformer art I’ve seen recently has stark black areas depicting shadows in logical locations and it adds to the depth.
