How many pages is it?
220 aprox. I think.
Now that I read through it thoroughly, I have to say as much as I absolutely loved this series. I am really glad they didn't go ahead with season 4, the episode summaries for it seem meh compared to the 3 seasons.
Megatgron moved bloody TRYPTICON to earth. How is that not epic?
Wut?! Trypticon?! Tell me MOAR!
You'll just have to buy the book > : D
And earth mode ironhide looks LOVELY. Hotshot looks, surprisingly cool. David willis must be crying himself to sleep : D
Where did you get the books? I asked before and no one answered. And what does Hot Rod and Cyclonus bio say?
Does Borders have this yet. All this talk is making me bloody excited, so excited I used the word bloody
How can you there us to buy the books when you don't even tell us where you got it from?
I got mine at my Local comic store SS
Cyclonuses bio is really neat, but the bio he gives for oilslick is amazing, it has a little hint of who he really is
I can't afford the book. I'm poor. Spoilers please.
Need to see Ironhide's earth mode and Hot Shot's toy...
Oh ok. I hope mine has it. Amazon won't ship till July for some odd reason. I'd like spoilers as well. I still plan on buying it to add with my first one.
YES, please, lay the spoilers on me too.
Powermaster Prime looks friggin awesome. I can't believe they got so much done and had to trash it all. Such a waste, as was what they did to Transtech =(
I didn't think to look here because it was an IDW book, I didn't realize this thread already existed. Here's my post from the comic forum:
Bios and art for (as far as I know) previously unrevealed chars, such as:
-Kup (he has the cy-gar)
-ALL Bumblebee variants (Glyph, Tap-Out, Chase, Freeway, Searchlight, Volks, Carrera, Furao, Hubcap, Sedan, Bumper)
-Lord High Governor Straxus
-Reflector (with alt mode pics)
Pretty much all of the April Fools' chars are in there as well. As is Rosanna.
Other bits that are particularly awesome among glancing through it:
-Crossword puzzle that I'm sure we'll all have a ton of fun/trouble with
-Fake "Great War" game with Air General Wing Saber (based off Cybertron version), Land General Dai Atlas, Air General Scrash (Skyquake), Land General Sideways (based off Armada version). Comes with game board which looks thoroughly awesome.
-Brief bits on Thrust & Dirge (Dirge is glutton, Thrust is envy)
-Complete review of Cyber-ninja corps
-Wingthing, Buzzsaw, Garboil models
-Map of Cybertron's home solar system and stellar cartography (RIDICULOUSLY DETAILED)
-Ceremonial guars Horsepower and Sparkride (orange and green variants of animated Prowl, respectively)
-Powered Convoy was Ultra Magnus' predecessor (pic shown, based off Magnus' model)
-Maccadam's Old Oil House menu (way too many obscure homages for me to figure out... I see Animated Tarantulas on the menu, as well as Sky-Lynyx, Cheetor, Cy-Kill, Stampy?, and Sky-Byte? (who looks REALLY freaky)
-Sari's Tutor-Bot 2.0 on Cybertron was made by Perceptor, and is the Diagnostic Drone from BM
-Yes, Vangelus is in here.
-Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Epsilon, Delta, Eta, Kappa, Iota, Zeta, Theta Supremes. Impactor, Railspike, Wedge, Override, Silverbolt, Hot Spot, Optimus Primal, Big Bang, Longrack, Scattershot are their pilots.
-Detailed Steelhaven (Magnus' ship) schematics
-Hero jet twin prototypes (yes, they were planned even before Animated became Animated)
-Season 4 lineup would have Prime w/ Magnus hammer, Bumblebee, Jazz, Ironhide w/ earth mode, and Ratchet in movie colors
-Some REALLY interesting ideas for Season 4 episodes. Won't spoil them here, buy the book!
-Powermaster Optimus Prime (makes Wingblade Prime look puny) made it to orthographic stage
-Hot Shot toy made it to gray resin prototype stage
-Repaint of Swindle in monochrome & red colors as Mercenary Swindle is on their docket of planned-but-unreleased redecos
Yes, though they're the photoshopped official pics.
How does Prime get that upgrade? I want to know Rodimus' bio.
Is it just me or Hot Shot looks alot like Prime Bumblebee?
It's just you.
If anyone has scans send them to me. Amazon won't ship mine for a while for some stupid reason. Why was Bulkhead removed from the lineup?
Separate names with a comma.
