Yeah I think you answered your own point their in the news post - These books don't get any attention due to them being set in the Live Action Movie Universe - I think DOTM has burnt so many bridges with fans that perhaps oddly these books may be read by more casual people outside the fanbase than by fans... which would be the opposite of say the comics.

But you never know their might be a market for this even if it is 2 years to late.

I liked the first book. It was a quick easy read. I'm hoping for good things out of the follow-up.

And as a random aside... I'm a bit surprised we haven't seen news on a Gears toy in one of these lines (unless I missed it). I would think they would have a toy to follow with the novels.

^ The novels are actually based on the RotF Gears toy. An interesting choice, to say the least.

I wish they would have made the decision to put the "Transformers: Classified" book series into the Aligned Continuity AND aim it towards teenage readers. It would have been a excellent opportunity to flesh out the characters and tell stories that couldn't be done in TV-Y7 children's show. What a waste of potential.

I have the ROTF Gears... but the Gears on the cover of the novel looks a lot more like the G1 Gears.

My guess is we will get a Generations Gears next year.
People have been speculating that the retooled Kup toy might be intended for Gears and now Hasbro Asia will be releasing that mold as Swerve who was Gears retool back in G1, so yeah Gears next year (I would guess anyway).

Edit: Kind of unrelated though I guess. I had forgotten it was a movie-verse book and there was a toy for it. Meh, I want a Generations one instead
