Transformers Generations 2012 Book Announced

By way of Amiami's Rakutan store we have confirmation that Takara-Tomy and Million Publishing will be releasing a new volume to their Transformers Generations book series. Generations 2012 which according to the link will be released on 18 April 2012 will feature an article on Transformers Prime, a complete listing of all Transformers Dark of the Moon toys, behind the scenes material and designer's interviews, and more. Best of all to myself at any rate is the promise of a comic titled "Masterforce - Another Story of Pretenders".

There will also be an exclusive toy mail away campaign offered in connection with the book - no word yet on who or what the exclusive might be.

... This day has not been easy on my wallet.

Actually, that ad doesn't say anything about a special toy. It just says it "doesn't come with the toy" - that could well be a standard disclaimer...

Awaiting BBTS preorder!

Cant wait to see what the exclusive is. But it is just a reminder that I still need to bite the bullet and order Stepper.

I've been watching BBTS's stock level for Stepper so I can hope he goes lower. It snag him if stock gets too low...

lol, me too. Infact just checked after this thread went up. Still hoping for a price drop, but if it starts getting low (for some odd reason), I will bite the bullet. If the next one happens to be Artfire, I will buck up though, and buck up for another Gear of War set.

I suppose it's to much to hope for Roadrage or Detritus.

lol I checked it after reading this thread too! If we get Artfire... I just hope he comes with a reverse colored Nightstick and not that PCC Minicon he had in the comic...

We're already getting Road Rage in the Botcon set this year (more or less). I'm still hoping for Artfire.

You are absolutely correct. I guess I need to read more carefully before making sweeping statements ^_^().

Yeah, the focusing on Pretenders excites me more than the toy (which will likely remain out of my price range).


-ZacWilliam, Pretenders rock and don't get near enough love.

I too would really like for it to be Artfire. That said we're now talking about a character from last year's comic of course. That said, I wonder which Masterforce and/or pretender character they could make as an exclusive if Million Publishing & co went that way. A little obvious to the point of being a bland choice but Generations Skullgrin doesn't have a United counterpart yet. There are even less candidates for Headmaster Juniors - if the exclusive is a straight redeco of a presently available mold; two points to consider the inverses of.

Still, discounting those things makes Artfire seem more likely. Unless by some great inprobability we get, for example, Generations Nightbeat in the interim and an exclusive Minerva/Minelba.
Deceptigtar
probably be a CON, i hope.

Oooh, these are always good!

Grandum
Calling it now - it's gonna be artfire
Thundershot
The only thing I fear... is if Stepper is running $120 in the US online shops, how much would they try to sell Artfire for??

*preordering on day one, regardless*

BBTS still has 322 steppers left in stock...just an FYI

I'm very much aware (see above). All the more reason to get Artfire right away since they'll probably order significantly less than Stepper...

If its Artfire, mark me down for Stepper as well.
Grimlock_13
My fingers are crossed for Artfire as well.

At least for those that picked up Stepper via online preorders (like me) the few months between when the offer for the figure began and when the figure was actually released gave people time to save up the money for one.

If the exclusive (especially if it's Artfire) is as expensive or more expensive, I'm all for another gap of a few months between initial offer and actual release to save up the money again for it.

Let this exclusive be: United Artfire!

For some reason, I can't get sick of this mold. Inferno, Grapple, and Pyro are already looking forward to their new friend Hot Spot. Artfire would make a great addition to the team.

Hell yeah! I'd even take a Hosehead, Red Hot and Hauler if they ever made those guys out of this mold. Though I guess the first two would look kind of similar to Inferno. Maybe I should just get two more Infernos and try some customizing.

Close Enough.

Artfire would be SWEEEEEEEET! - any idea when preorders are going to go up? IIRC preorders for Stepper were in June/July 2011 and it was released in Dec. Is that correct?
