Transformers is a big part of what makes me the Evil Geek that I am today. As a kid in the 1980’s the G1 cartoon was mandatory viewing and the concept alone was enough to really stretch out my imagination. While of course I collected the toys, retrospectively they didn’t always resemble their cartoon counterparts. One thing the toys did have though was the box art and despite the occasional odd proportion here or there it’s these depictions of the characters that became in my mind their definitive representations.
In this post, I’ve decided to collect and present to you a small sampling of the best (and my favorite) Autobot and Decepticon box art.
Do you love giant robots from the 1980’s? Do you love nerd art? Of course you do or else you wouldn’t be here. If you live in the Philadelphia area and are planning on going to the Wizard World Comic Con (May 30 – June 2) the crew over at Acidfree Gallery will be releasing these exclusive posters for the event:
Hello there my faithful readers and servants! Today I bring to you another edition of the Brotherhood of Evil Geeks presents: Villain Spotlight!

Happy October to all Brothers and Sisters in Evil Geekland! We’re popping in today to bring you the first edition of our new monthly feature: The Top 5 Thunderdome Throwdown!!! Every month each of our contributors will bring you their top 5 favorites in any random category. It could be our 5 favorite crappy comic movies, 5 favorite action figures, 5 favorite NES games, or pretty much anything else that pops into our Evil minds.

Since October is clearly our favorite month, as it contains Halloween which is the most evil and geeky of all the holidays, we thought we’d start off by having the Evil Geeks list off their top favorite villains from any genre. Any person/place/thing that has done some pretty raw stuff to another person/place/thing ever in any medium is up for grabs in this Big Bad Free-For-All! Ready for our first Evil list down?! Here we go!
