Transformers 2010 Super Bon Bon Manga

While looking for content for the blog recently I came across a mange series which I had never seen reference to on fansites. Beginning in the first issue of Super BonBon in May 1986 "Transformers 2010" had a feature manga with the first issue featuring a Mini Rodimus fulfilling a legend to defeat a monster, which in this case was Predaking. I have managed to get a copy of this first issue but i am not sure how many where released overall. Through my research i have found that a few where released including one that features the Japan only Headmasters in a prominent roll.
You can look at the first issue using the link below:

Site Update (new sections)

Had the time recently to add some new content to the site along with adding 2 new sections for some older content. The first thing that has been fixed is Transformers Season 5 which unfortunately had its links copywrite claimed so now the links are being hosted on mega for the moment. I have also updated the episode and promo sections with all the new videos i have added to youtube in the last few months including new copies of the robotmasters episodes and new captures of 2 beast machines toy ads. Finally 2 new sections of the site have been added, the script section contains scans of the scripts i have collected over the years including a scan for the first episode of the original RID which i dont believe i have shared on the site before and the final new section which contains pictures and descriptions of the Transformers Press Kits and fliers i curently have from the original 86 movie to more recent stuff like rescue bots.

In the coming months im hoping to have the movie storyboard scans completed along with another selection of tv magazine scans done in preperation for the subtitled release of Transformers Beast Wars Neo later in the year.

Transformers The Movie Storyboard Part 1

Thanks to the Austrialian Ninja I have an "almost" complete set of Transformers The Movie Storyboards which I am currently editing into its different sequences. So far I have uploaded the first 10 sequences from the film which can now be viewed in the storyboard section of the site or the link below. 
So what do mean by an almost complete set? The original scan was not done carefully and has parts of the image out of frame, I have also found a few missing pages during the editing and since number of images matches the file names I don't think they where scanned at all. Considering how many images are in the set in total however I think this was a pain to even scan in the first place. The second part of the set should be coming as soon as I have some spare time.
