Micronauts 30th Anniversary by MartySalsman Micronauts 30th Anniversary by MartySalsman
This 30th Anniversary color art piece is in honor of the great Bill Mantlo and Micheal Golden who brought my favorite toys to life. I liked models a lot and the toys(by MEGO) had interchangable parts so naturally I loved them, a few years later Mighty Marvel published these wonderful comics. Marty Abrams is my hero as well in this piece, without whom we wouldn't have Micronauts at all. The Micronaut/Microman line of toys are the originators of the "Tranformers"!!

Naww, one big happy Microversian family of heroes :aww:

I'm 14 and thanks to my dad, I love the Shogun Warriors and Micronauts when he talked about his childhood :)

It would be great to see that published.

Guess I shouldn't be surprised that Golden was involved w/ both Micronauts, and Crystar. Those were 2 of my favorite toy lines growing up, and I still have a few of each!

Cross yer fingers!

He's a great artist and colorist too. He was art director at Marvel for a while.

Nice pen & ink, and coloring! As always, it shows you did your research and know your stuff.
