    The book includes:

    War Within #1
    Armada #17
    Gen one #3
    Summer Special beast wars
    Gathering #4
    Stormbringer #3 #4
    Animated movie 1
    Prequel #2
    20th Lithograph Pencil closeups and 3 unused covers

    Its basically everything you already have. I was disappointed, I wanted a lot of sketches, War Within/Stormbringer concepts and sketches, unused pencils and was basically hoping for unplubl;ished or unseen stuff. Oh well. I have to say the book is worth it though just for the Litho Closeups, large format and signed stormbringer sketch that was included. I just spotted some unseen but small War within sketches. Overall definitely worth the purchase.

    I too thought it would have more sketches based on the info given in solicitations. I put it back. If they had had more sketches/ designs I would have bought it, but I had all the issues and trades of the issues, I didn't need a hardcover of stuff I already possessed.

    Yeah that was a bummer. The summer special also looks like it was printed from a bad photocopy. Really bad image quality. The pencils of the litho are really, really awesome. Its a shame the whole book wasn't stuff like that. Even so, huge pages of my favorite TF comics isn't so bad.

    I can't stand random assortments of comics that don't have anything to do with the next.

    Who else here would buy a design and sketch book of Don's? Maybe if we get a thread going we can convince them it's a viable sale. Heck I'd love just a book of concepts designs from all the artists in the IDW Transformer department. I bought the G1 Cartoon design book.

    One word: Macromasters.

    If it ain't in there, it's not a complete package. I loves me some Macromasters goodness from the hardest working pencil in showbiz, Mr. Don "Just cause a cat has kittens in the oven, it don't make 'em biscuits" Figueroa. :)
