I instantly started to hum the theme tune, complete with those signature synthesizer notes ' ♫♪ whiuuw ♫♪'
Thanks for sharing these gems.

Beautiful. I loved the artwork as much as the music back in the day. I still don't understand how an overblown prog-rock/disco album could have been so damn frightening. As a young kid I used to have to build myself up to listen to side three...

These were a huge influence on me as a child - it was probably the first time I came to understand that one person could make amazing, real-feeling images and bring whole worlds to life. The fighting machines seemed as real and solid, albeit extremely alien, a thing as anything else in my world.

I think these (and the other booklet images), Star Wars and 2000AD were probably the three greatest influences on my development into art as a career.

The Thunderchild scene was a particular favourite, I must've studied the detail on that ship for days.
