So I got my copy of Transformer Generations 2009: Vol. 1 in the mail today and I gotta say, it's a great book. There are tons of beautiful pictures, interesting design sketches, and a bunch of catalog scans. The only problem? It's all in Japanese! Of course I knew it would be when I purchased the book. My point is, why doesn't someone put out a similar book in the US? Japan as gotten numerous TF books, including the original Generations book, the Visual Works book, and others that I think would do well in the US market. We've gotten a few books, most notably from Rik Alvarez, and those are great, but something officially backed with the type of resources Hasbro has available would be great. I wouldn't expect it to be on Oprah's booklist or anything, but I think a well executed book covering the history of Transformers toys could do well if marketed to the right group. Something more in-depth than the Transformers: Ultimate Guide from a few years back. Even if they just translated the original Generations book and released it in the US, I'd be happy. Anyway, sorry for the mini-rant. I was just frustrated from not being able to read the text accompanying the pics in the book I just paid too much for to import from Japan. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas?
