    Thread title says it all, which month can we expect issue one; after re-reading The Gathering yesterday I'm itching for Beast Wars profiles.

    probably sometime near the end of summer i would think. that way they can focus on movie stuff first, then pump those out....

    Does anyone know if IDW's Beast Wars Profile book is still coming out, delayed, or outright cancelled?

    Lumpy, I think it might be hard to find those MTMTE paperbacks. It was one of the very last things DW published and probably didn't get heavily ordered. Thats bad, but the good thing is that IDW is/was planning on releasing a hardcover of the all the MTMTE material. I already have both paperbacks but I'm tempted to get the hardcover.

    I don't know when it will get released but I think it would be awesome to see it released.

    Do you suppose IDW might try adding more entries into the G1 MTMTE hardcover? They're adding the BWII and Neo characters into the BW version, why not do the same for G1? I think it would be a great idea. Hopefully they think so too.

    The BW one is brand new never before released from DW or anybody; it has no ties to the supposed BW material DW was planning therefore IDW can add as much as they want to it seeing it's their book from the get go.
    The only way they could possibly add any more material to the DW MTMTE Profile Books would be if the additional Profiles like Sunstorm, Bumper, the Femmebots and whatever else was planned for that special Optimus Prime event issue like back in December 2004 or whenever were fully written up, inked, and IDW had access to them.

    In retrospect that may be why IDW has taken so long to release the MTMTE Hardcover edition; they may be digging around for those profile pages in order to add them there too, or it's possible they're doing a general Hardcover with Marvel's old TFU pages (All of them including the ones from the backs of certain issues) and DW's MTMTE pages in one rather impressive collectible, which would suit me just fine because I'd dig having both TFU and MTMTE in one format to compare the two and just have one massively handy reference guide for the Marvel TFU and the DW TFU.

    I'm guessing fall for BW too, probably around the time the Decimation/Annihilation (can't remember the exact name of the arc after Escalation) starts.
