José Delbo is best known to Transformers fans as one of the primary artists for the Marvel G1 title in the 80's. His unique style had an near-animated style to it and gave the characters very expressive facial expressions.
Originally introduced as a villain in the G1 "Return of Convoy" series, Super Megatron was finally made into toy form by Takara Tomy as part of the Selects series. Check out his comic below translated by fellow fan Doug Dlin!
