    I was browsing through a few of my favorite web comics today and I came across a review for this:

    http://www.amazon.com/Incredible-Change-Bots-Jeffrey-Brown/dp/1891830910/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1208142283&sr=1-1

    It's an obvious parody (or rip-off for those of you who choose to be negative) of Transformers, with a planet called "Electronocybercircuitron", and opposing factions, the "Awesomebots" led by "Big Rig", and the "Fantasticons" led by "Shootertron"

    I'm actually considering getting it to see if it's any good, and I was wondering if anyone else here had already done so. And if so, what did you think?

    Mmhhh... My first thought when I looked at the cover: Junk.
    The title..., the names..., nope thx. :thumbdown 
    But that's my opinon and you can't really give a statement without having read the strip. Perhaps it's not as bad as I think, but nevertheless: No.
    Let's see what the other guys think :wink:

    I've actually seen pages from this online. It is a direct parody of Transformers, but it's nothing worth buying. There are a couple of laughs, but nothing big. Most of it is just stupid.

    Yeah there's a thread of this of about a year ago.
    A buddy of mine recently bought me this book because he knows I love transformers and though it would be really funny and so did I.
    It is not.
    It might give a few smiles but that's all. Not really that funny.
