    I’m curious, does this only cover G1 stuff released in Japan, or does it also cover the European-exclusive G1 stuff?

    I bought this on Amazon but not directly from Amazon JP. Is it something I should worry about or will I get a smooth transaction anyway?

    I’m curious will Amazon itself get this back in? Or would I be better off with the aftermarket sellers?

    Will this be restocking on AJP or is my best bet to purchase from a seller on AJP?

    These are far better than the Bellomo book I have. IIRC he only covers North American toys in his, and there's a few mistakes in the Bellomo book I have. The only way the Bellomo book wins is by having English text.

    For my money Generations is THE definitive text on G1 toys.

    Got my copy. What an amazing book. It's like the ultimate version of the old checklist pamphlets the G1 toys came with (albeit in Japanese of course.) Perhaps best of all, it even includes the animation models (uncolored) from the cartoons! I didn't expect that.

    Definitely the nostalgia trip I was hoping for.

    As much as I would love to order it, Amazon Japan does not ship to South Korea... No other Korean shopping sites have it either. I'm making a personal-use Korean Transformers scrapbook guidebook and this would have been a great addition. :(

    Looks like Amazon jp only has marketplace options now - roughly 3800 yen with delivery. Any other options available?

    I've been looking ever since Amazon.jp sold out directly and haven't found any that weren't overly expensive, unfortunately. Those were a few sites in Singapore and a couple of Japanese bookshops with an online presence. All made the third-party sellers look cheap by comparison when not sold out. The hunt for something affordable to ship to NYC continues for me...

    For those who got their copies, how much did you pay with shipping? I'm considering getting it from sakurajapan.co.kr, through which you can buy from from Japanese sites. I made a first transaction for a copy from Amazon Japan for 3024 Yen, plus 1500 for packaging. (58,000 KRW) . Now they're asking for an additional 3300 Yen shipping fee. Is is worth seeing it through and paying over 90,000 KRW total for a 160-page foreign picture guidebook?

    I just paid the exact same two hours ago for what was listed as the last copy available being sold directly from Amazon.
