    VERY interesting stuff, but I doubt I'll buy the 50 dollar hardcovers (they would probably cost 60 euros here...). The movie paperback and it's prequel have me interested, though. And with 104 pages, it won't look like they'll cram the story into 50 pages. Nice.

    Awesome stuff. I'm least interested in the best ofs but I'm down for all the other comic stuff. The animation model book sounds really cool too.

    Best.News.EVER! Don's work is 100% to blame for my comeback to the Transformers realm, so having a book compiling his stuff is a dream come true.

    And speaking of Don, also don't forget about the Stormbringer TPB coming out this or next month, I believe.

    Hey Flux Convoy, where is your sig picture taken from?

    I wonder if Floro Dery demanded that the words 'DESIGNED SOLEY BY FLORO DERY' are stamped in big block letters on every page.

    Some good stuff there. Not being around during the DW area, I'm looking forward to picking up War Within. The animation models book sounds very interesting, and of course the TPBs from the ongoing series are must haves. Great work IDW!

    It's not happening AFAIK. The solicitation was made in the hope that the legal issues could be resolved on that block of material, which hasn't turned out to be the case.

    Nice research work, S_A!

    Some awesome stuff here. Added most of it to my wish list so I don't forget. I'm particularly looking forward to the animation models book.

    The hardcovers don't particularly interest me, but if they have sufficient new material I might be tempted. As they get closer to realize Amazon will probably apply their usual discount that will get the price somewhere around $30-35 each.

    Mmmm... The Ark one, Movie TPB and Movie Prequel I'll most probably get.

    Greatest Battles, Best of Furman and Best of Figueroa depending on what's there.

    in more "Artiepants doesn't understand what the hell IDW is thinking on prices" after the announcement Stormbringer would be $18 in trade (for 4 $3 issues, or $12) and we see the trend contiue with the animated adaptation (4 $ issues, or $16) for $18; now we have Escalation (6 $4 issues, or $24) for $20 and Prime Directive (4 $4 issues, or $16) for $20 :eek:  wouldn't be fleecing for the movie tie-in would we...

    still, excited by the Best of DON (i probably have all the issues, but it's the sketches and other work that excites me) and the Animation model book...

    It would be nice to have the Furman, Don and Ark books on teh shelf. Thing is, I have all of Furman's TF stuff anyway, so unless they add some interesting extras (like thoughts about the stories etc) I'll probably miss that one.
