The artwork for this set comes primarily from my own scans and photos, as well as from Axel Giménez. This is a comparison between the cross sell artwork by Alfredo Alcala that was featured on the backs of the first four minicomics, and the standardized cross sell artwork by William George on the backs of the packaging. The Alcala artwork is based on some of the earliest prototype designs, but also is informed by Alcala’s own indelible artistic style.

I LOVE Alcala’s version of these characters so much! How there isn’t a mini-toyline based exclusively on them is beyond me!
Please, don’t tells super7…
Erm… wasn’t the Battle Cat image on the early comic pages, along with these others, also be him?
Yikes! How could I leave off Battle Cat! I even prepped the Alcala cross sell art for it already. Thanks for the reminder!
It was Alcala’s art that really got me hooked back in 1982, recognizing his style from Marvel and DC comic books. His are for me the ultimate versions of the characters.
