    Remember the "Generation Guide"-books Hobby Japan releases in winter each year covering the Transformers toylines of the recent year and feature some interesting tidbits around figure design and upcoming new toys?

    Well this year there's an entire book dedicated solely to Beast Wars. It'll be released in December and a rough auto-translation of the info text reads:

    https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/4798623601/

    I had some of these "Generation" books in the past and even though being unable to read them they were worth their money for the artwork and pictures inside alone. I'll get one. It's also on AmiAmi if you prefer to order there:

    Update: Cover revealed via https://twitter.com/HobbyJapan_MAG/status/1329059785501622282

    I don’t own a single BW figure, but I’ve always been interested in the designs. I think I’ll buy this.

    Amazon Japan usually ship books worldwide, had my last few Generations from them. Give it time.

    Does the ASIN work on Amazon.com? Not at the moment but it might https://www.amazon.com/dp/4798623601

    Failing that HLJ usually carries them

    Tee hee, they mention Animorphs! Seems like many people want to pretend they didn't happen... and "but we got the BW Mutants" doesn't seem to help.

    My main point is, seems throrough.

    You would think they would put the book in English too since beast wars was born in America. Wasnt the original cartoon Canadian ?

    Things I wish:
    a) This book were in English
    b) I had a Magmatron
    c) Beast Galvatron and Car Robots Gigatron get Generations updates someday that are as awesome as the upcoming beast Megatron.
