    Excellent! :D 

    Now the worst part, The Waiting begins. I hate waiting for two things, books and toys.

    This is going to be hell.;)

    Suggestion: Drop "Unofficial" from the title.

    Forgive me if this has been asked, but are you going to make some extra copies of the books or just what has been paid for?

    I wouldn't have managed to stay married for 18 years without learning to admit when I get out of line. :oops:  Sometimes, it's a good idea to do that on the internet, too....
    Waiting with bated breath for the next exciting development!

    Any chance of future books for other Transformer lines?

    This is as transparent as I can be about this:
    All things considered, I can tell you that there will be at least 500 copies printed for both Volumes for this run.

    The current total number of books pledged for is the following:
    Volume-1 = 401 copies
    Volume-2 = 370 copies

    If the numbers stay under 500 each by the end of the campaign, we will be looking into ways to liquidate (At the same price) beyond October 15th.

    Now, if we somehow spike beyond 500 copies of each on the last weekend, I'm not sure what we'll be doing, it depends on a few things.

    I'm also not sure when or IF we'll have a second print run after this.. It's just a LOT of work.. But like everything else encountered on this project path, I trust that the right door will open or the right person will come into play when we're deservingly ready for it.

    Hope that clears things up a bit.

    We have a few possibilities on the horizon.
    But right now, all our energy will be put on these two volumes till everyone has their copies in hand.

    I would really like to do so.
    But unless a proven authority from the "powers that be" approaches us personally about it.
    "Unofficial" will have to stay.

    Yeah, don't tempt fate and a lawsuit from the big "H." There's nothing wrong with saying these books are "unofficial," because that's exactly what they are. That doesn't make them any less legit from a collector's point of view, however.

    Will the volumes include any group shots of the figures? For example, it might be nice to have a wide shot of all the figures grouped together in bot mode; or by release year; etc.

    Another nice-to-have would be dimensions and weight of the figures.

    I know this is something you don't want to think about, but make sure you make enough to take care of any damaged copies people might get. It unfortunately happens...

    I officially like that statement. :) 

    Yes, every year and faction will have title pages that will feature a group shot and historical overview text.

    You can see one featured in the Kickstarter video:
    Transformers G1 Unofficial Photographic Archive Vintage Toys

    Yeah, we'll have to take that into account for our final print number.
    Thank you.

    You got it. :)

    Ah, this is the first Kickstarter I've supported so don't know fully how it works. I didn't think you could retract once you committed.
