    I was unpacking the boxes of comics at work today and the copy I ordered of Transformers: The Ark came in. I just want to let everyone know that it is aweeeeeeeeesome. Every G1 fan should own it. It's over 200 pages of nothing but black and white character designs and models from the G1 caratoon. Over 500 characters, an insignia reference guide and a scale guide to show how big the Transformers are. Best of all.. it's only $20! So go to your local comic shop and buy one, or demand they order one for you if they don't carry it. You won't regret it. :rock

    What is this thing? I have never heard of it. I assume it's brand-new? Who is it published by?

    Thanks for the info.! I rarely venture into the comics forum. I mostly get my news from the main page, so either it was never posted there or I missed that day. Sounds kinda cool!

    No just American G1 characters, but some of the head master designs from season 4 show up and they even have some of the humans. They have some alternate designs for some characters as well. There are designs fro devcon to Autobot x, but sadl other than Arcee none of the Fem bots are featured. No Elita One etc.

    I'll keep an eye out for this, Could be good for a look, and it'd give me a chance to do some photoshop practice. Scan in the B+W Image, colour it in Photoshop.
