    Has anybody else picked up the MOTU character guide?

    It's excellent. I am convinced now that format would work for Transformers, the way they deal with the different continuities/canons.

    I'd be interested in an IDWverse encyclopedia once the comics have finished. While the continuity is still evolving, the wiki is perfect. I would pay for a handsome printed version once I knew it was going to be definitive.

    It would require multiple volumes and it would be obsolete almost immediately upon release. I'm not sure how Marvel and DC avoid this, but Star Wars and Trek at least are more centralized and build out more slowly than TF fiction. And MOTU is virtually static at this point?
