    Man, this looks like a great book. Anyone know if it might be available in digital download or PDF format ?

    I\'d would buy it instantly if it was....

    For those that are wondering, Rik tweeted that Amazon should be getting their next batch within a week.

    Ugh! Maybe ill buy anyway but man, I really wish these books would be scanned and sold that way, assuming of course, if the file could be write protected to prevent piracy.

    Is this different than the kick starter project that got shut down in October. If so, why is this able to sell when kick starter can't?

    From what I gather, Rik's pictures aren't as "good" or as extensive as the Kickstarter version, or something like that?

    Yes, it is different. We haven't gotten (that I have seen) any updates from Ocular Echo. I like both, but having followed the guys progress at Ocular Echo, I am holding out hope that their hard work pays off and we get to see it.

    I hope this isn't why the Kickstarter books weren't allowed to be produced.

    The OE book was a brilliant parts and photography guide. They are two very different books. My book serves more as a reintroduction/coffee table book to your childhood. That's what I set out to make and stated in the Intro. I hope the OE book gets published. I was honored they asked me to write the forward for the first volume of it.

    Curious to see how extensive it is on the foreign market and variations. Are the Brazillian minibots included? Mexican Prowl? That sort of thing.

    Just got my copy from Amazon. I\'m hoping the Ocmax books still make it out to us eventually but I\'m definitely enjoying this book so far. Great purchase in my eyes.

    Happy with Bellomo for G1. I'll pick it up if the expanded G2 section impresses me. Got the original, along with his Beast Wars and International volumes, which are musts. I still mean to grab a copy of the collectible/merch book.

    There are many international variants included such as the red Tracks and the Mexican Prowl. I think people will be very surprised at the large amount of South American Minicars featured in the book. There are many many examples from several countries both in and out of packaging. We were lucky enough to have one of the largest Minicar collectors lend us his collection.

    Nice guide but not what I collect now. If there is plans to make a 3rd version I would love to see a real vs knock off comparasion, with what to look for notes. That would then make it a vintage Transformers collector\'s bible.

    I'm going to get one as i have one on order with Amazon. I found out about the book right before video review and on the front page here. Amazon had the book on one of the search pages and got it right away. I'm excited about this book that i can't wait till the 28th of this month.
