    I was wondering if a G-1 TF character guide has ever been made that shows a pic of the certain bot, gives there bio card info, and tells about the bot?? Something that is either alphabetical or divided by Autobots/Decepticons. Basically a complete G-1 guide that gives info on all the TFs individually....

    I know of this one: [​IMG]

    ...Its great but not really a complete guide of all the characters individually with thier bio card stats.

    Anyone know of anything?

    There's guides for G1, Beast Wars, Animated, and Armada, but no one guide that collects everything (other than the one you showed, but as you said, that one isn't very definitive).

    For G1, you've got the vintage "Transformers Universe" from Marvel (only released as individual issues, no trade available) and the "More Than Meets the Eye" series from Dreamwave (which was also re-released by IDW).

    Dreamwave also released a MTMTE series for Armada, but this was not sold as a trade, so just as with TFU, you'd have to get the individual issues.

    Beast Wars has a 'Sourcebook' released by IDW, though it sorta gets everything wrong.

    Animated has the 2 volume Allspark Almanac, which is really good fanwanky stuff.

    Also, there's a book called The Ark, which doesn't have profiles, but it collects all of the original character models from the G1 cartoon.

    There was indeed a TPB, which included all of the '86 movie characters as well; now all I have to do is remember where the hell my battered-but-well-thumbed copy is. :thumb

    There is a trade available, it misses out about half a dozen of the profiles from the individual issues though.

    EDIT: Beaten to it.

    there's an online archive of the Marvel profiles

    Who's Who in the Transformers Universe

    the actual book looks pretty much like that. Just the pictures on a white page with a normal font.
