    And also, what is the portion of the G1 history regarding other parts of the book ? Is it a big portion of it, or does the movie stuff is the dominant one ?

    That kitbashed Energon Prime is kinda neat. Just "behind-the-scenes neat" though, not "I'd buy it for $40 neat".

    I'm surprised that they're calling him "Optimus Prime" over there, I assumed that he'd be Convoy, or some variant of it.

    Is it all in Japanese? I see the titles are in English but the descriptions look to be in Japanese below them.

    @benzo: English release of this, you're better off wining the lottery or getting struck by lightning.

    @kenm2474: mainly Japanese but with English on TF names when translated.

    I'm a little surprised they're using "Optimus Prime". Japan's Primes has usually been named Convoy. How many pages and can we get a clear shot of the back of the book?

    The paper model is a bit of a contradiction in itself. You have the parts needed to make it actually articulate, and then other parts which are way too simple. Look at those hands, or some of the details on the sides of the legs, or the head...

    i actually had the content page by page posted, but i think mod dude accidently deleted it, it was at the bottom of 1st post. lemmesee if i can do a total recall here;

    pg 1-2, movie screencaps
    pg 3-12, movie toys
    pg 13-16, toys behind the scene
    pg 17, upcoming merch
    pg 18-19 history
    pg 20-28 past toys from g1 to KP stuff
    pg 29 comic n cd
    pg 30-33 some timeline shit

    i think i got it all there dudes. the book isnt very thick, its only as thick as the whole lotta papermus prime card sheets.
