    So I have been working on a secret project. Diaclone: Car Robots book. It is a photoanalysis of the original transforming car robots. I just printed the first book in the series. There will be 6 volumes. Covering all Car robots and the last book will have the rare stuff like Black Tracks, PC DLX, Gold Jazz etc. The books will show 5 Car robots sequentially per book.

    Here are some pics of the first book. It covers Red Sunstreaker to Blue Trailbreaker

    I also have scans of the Diaclone Catalogs. Each volume will showcase a different Catalog.

    Each book will document the pakaging, toy, and inserts with full page images. Variants and differences from Diaclone to their TF counterparts will be noted.



    For those who really want the book now, go here http://www.blurb.com/books/2025043 there is a small link at the bottom of the preview window that looking like a shopping cart.

    I'd be very interested in them.

    Couple of questions:

    Do you work in printing/publishing, or are they being put together for you?

    How many pages in each volume?

    Ballpark cost?

    I'd be very interested in stocking this. I'm a buyer for a very large bookshop (europe's largest) however, it would need to be produced through the official channels. can't pick up self published stuff if it doesn't come up on Neilsen. I'd love to give this a decent push.

    PM me with any details you have.

    I'll add my name to the "I'm interested once I find out the cost" list. I love Diaclone and all its glorious cars.

    Looks like it should be a nifty tome.

    So, how soon before some comment page post rages that the whole thing is about Transformer knock-offs? :D
