The Transformers are getting the pop up book treatment by Matthew Reinhart, and he's shared some previews. The books will feature large versions of our favorite characters, mixing generations and styles for a well rounded dip into the Transformers universe. Check out preview shots of the book after the break!

That' some cool art. I like the picture of OP and BB, an interesting blend of Prime and G1 designs.
SPLIT LIP
That's pretty intricate for a pop-up book.
Ribieconvoy
I see a Greatshot and Scrounge in the last image. I can dig it.
General Tekno
My mind = blown at how intricate that is.
HeroicC300
Awesome!

Also, glad Whirl made it. Here's hoping other Wreckers (and Railspike) do.

We know from the Botcon presentation that this book is gonna be using a lot of previously unused designs from the big Aligned Story Bible and a ton of obscure characters. I mean Big Red is in there!

It makes me a lot more excited than I normally would be for a pop-up book.


-ZacWilliam, that the pop-up parts look pretty intricate and cool helps too of course.

Here's hoping for Glyph and Impactor then.

What? Pop up book? What?

I'm curious to see more but i'm unsure why someone would make this?
Digilaut
I actually wasn't a big fan of the Bumblebee design used on the cover, but WOW, what we can see is in the book has me really excited
Lumpy
Sky Lynx! fuck yeah!

Why *wouldn't* someone make this? It's awesome.

Isn't this the same guy that made the two Star Wars pop up books? If so, I'll be getting this for sure. It's so detailed.

I don't care about the pop up , I care about what Hasbro will release instead... should have redone the subject.
Autovolt 127
Do my eyes deceive me or do i see Star Saber?

I must say this pop up book is actually done well.

Yep, Matthew Reinhart did the two Star Wars pop-ups. The engineering he manages to put into these things is amazing with multiple mini pop-ups in the corners of each page surrounding a huge central one. Can't wait for this

I'm actually thinking of trying this one day one. I like the artwork on it so far.
Cadbane
Been waiting for it since Botcon.
Chris McFeely
Wait, wait, hang on - does that pop-up truck actually TRANSFORM into that pop-up Optimus? SORCERY.

Ben Yee has posted some pic of the Book from the Hasbro event tonight to Facebook.

-ZacWilliam, though Transforming Optimus is hard to beat...
Chris McFeely
Well *I* just pre-ordered this thing.

-ZacWilliam, the giant Omega pop-up is still my favorite. Also I think I see a Prime style Arcee in G1 colors on one of the early pages. Interesting. I would have prefered a reverse of that.
ZacWilliam
Oh that's hilarious. Someone posted a clear pic of the Dinobots page.

They accidentally switched two of the Functions. Swoop is now the Dinobot's Swamp Warrior and Sludge is their Bombardier.


-ZacWilliam, I'd love to see a comics strip of each of them trying out their new jobs. Flying Brontosaur away! ;p

Same here, I had it in an Amazon wish list and the price was hovering around $30 for months, then today it dropped to $22 and I pulled the trigger.

And from the pics it looks like this thing is going to be so awesome.

Is he dryhumping that tower?

For some reason, I've been seeing ads for this in the occasional DC issue I've gotten.

But whatever. This looks REALLY cool! Pop-up books already involve a lot of creativity, but pop-up images big and small that can transform is something amazing. Unless early reviews say the book sucks, I'm definitely gonna get this.
LegendAntihero
Where can I get this? Will this be in comic shops or Barnes and Nobles?
Murasame
Can't see the images. I'm not on Facebook. I will never ever be.

I'm not signing up for facebook either but the pics are showing for me

i LOVE those Bumblebee and Prime designs. Are those from the design Bible for aligned continuity?

Yes. Apparently this book will be using a bunch of Aligned Bible designs.


-ZacWilliam, I'm excited to see them.
That Guy
Has it been mentioned that it looks like the first two pictures are from the same place in the pop up book?





I wonder if you'll be able to open the book, and you see the alt mode pop up, then you can pop that up into the robot mode! That'd be cool.
LegendAntihero
The engineering in this pop up book is brilliant.

That's exactly the appeal of this book - the pop-ups themselves can transform!
Paxtin
That's kind of crazy.
Gearshift
I actually already own this pop-up book! My local bookstore may have broken street date by... a month or so? Would people like me to take pictures of it?
