    I'm assuming everyone remembers that the "Transformers: Art of the Movies" book was intended to be released sometime around now.

    What happened to it? Did it get wrapped up in legal tape or something?

    I also heard that Ben Procter wanted to release a book called "Rejecticons", which would feature designs of all the robots who didn't make it into the final film of ROTF (apparently, there was a lot).

    I'm guessing they're postponing it until after TF3, so that way they don't have to publish it in two volumes or editions.

    I don't know what the heck is going on with that book. TF artbook has been on my #1 list ever since I heard it was being released, but sadly it didn't even make it for this year's holiday.

    I'm not sure if it was Bonaventura or Simon Furman, but someone found out it was out of stock or something, and assured the fans it would be coming out soon, but it's been 3 or so months ago.

    So yeah, its really anticipated and I can't wait to get further news of this, or at least Procter updates his site with new designs from TF2, that would make up for the book if it never reaches shelves soon enough.

    I'm totally fine if it's just delayed until after movie 3. Being cancelled and never seeing the light of day is far worse.

    I'll agree with this, but it has been a while now since TF1 was released, and those concepts of Bayverse are mouth-watering. It would be painful to wait another 2 years, who knows if I'll be around..

    I'm okay with that as long as the T3 stuff is included.

    I'm not.

    I LOVE the Bay-verse designs, and having a book released ASAP would be great.
    They should just do another volume for TF3. It makes them more money, right?

    Way to totally neuter my whole post just to disagree with it.

    Sorry... I didn't mean to offend you. I can get rid of the quote, if you like?

    I'm just saying, if it takes a little longer to come out, that's fine, as long as it still comes out.

    Agreed. Although... I would rather have it sooner than later.

    4/29/10?

    I can deal with that. Though I doubt it'd have movie 3 designs in there if that's the case.

    Haven't seen that before, thanks Moy!

    The Amazon listing had it coming out in 2025, so I obviously didn't believe that one. This date sounds a lot more reasonable, and I can wait long enough for that.
