New book? "The Transformers Vault"

The Transformers Vault: The Complete Transformers Universe: Amazon.co.uk: Pablo Hidalgo: Books

Apologies if this has already been discussed, but I found this new (very) advanced listing for an upcoming book called "The Transformers Vault". No other details.

The publisher, Abrams, are well known for their lavish, all-colour coffee table type books (they recently released a Star Trek book called Star Trek: 365, which is fantastic) so this could be an interesting one...?

Interesting... I know Pablo Hidalgo is big into Star Wars but Transformers? That's news to me.

Edit: He wrote a GI Joe vs Cobra book back in 2009 and judging by the comments on Amazon, didn't go over too well with hardcore fans.

Pablo Hidalgo has voiced support in the past for the TFWiki, so that's a very good starting point as far as I'm concerned.

Hidalgo does good stuff for Star Wars, so I'll certainly be interested in finding out more about this.

The SW Vault is very cool. I'd definitely sign on for a similar TF-based book.

Newest Additions: Lots of stuff I'm too lazy to list right now.

That's a great book. Too bad Pablo wasn't involved with it.

Cool, my first news credit - thanks guys!

The fact this says it is the "Transformers Universe" leads me to hope its an all-generation-spanning overview of the franchise. Timed nicely with the release of TF3 as well...

Interesting, might pre-order this now so I can get one before they sell out and get super-expensive like Allspark Almanac 2 (bah)

Wait, Allspark Almanac II is still available on Amazon at 13 bucks...
How much am I spending this year on Transformers?
