Default RG1 #81 variant cover by Guido Guidi

Nothing shocking or spoiler-ish, but the artwork looks very Gen1-ish... like a blend of Wildman & Senior. It would fit in well with the original comic series.

Guido posted it on his facebook page, and was mirrored here.

Hot rod is very... purple. I like that they are sticking with the original colour palettes, but wow he is bright!

That's a great retro style cover. I love the Aitken & Garvey style shading on it too.

For a comparison, the Geoff Senior cover of #81 can be seen here.

Heh, yeah, Hot Rod wasn't quite that purple in the G1 comics... more like a maroon. That's more like a Decepticon Purple(TM)! Ah well, I can see that it is meant to be a retro-style cover, and it works well.

He was purple in the Gen2 comic, just not as bright as that. I think who ever coloured #81 was told purple... but was meant be dark purple.

For me though, he should be a red or maroon... not dark OR light purple. Have we ever had a Hot Rod toy that was purple and yellow?

And in case Sky Shadow is watching - maybe it's just a varient...

Seriously, how can one not like TF art? - Especially when you've got the likes of this bloke scribing it?, why can't June/July come quicker already?
