    Soooo beautiful. Yeah someone page our resident translator lol. Thanks, I'm sure that took some time.

    Also the more I look at those transformation panes, the more I realize the transformation isn't anywhere near as overly-complex as I think some are fearing. It actually looks extremely symmetric, intuitive, and logical once you get your head around it. The legs in particular are downright elegant.

    Mine's not coming until Monday, alas. I will savor it lol. (I know I've already seen the scans, but as with all things, having it in person is different. Brings back memories of sitting around the tree and reading toy catalogs.)

    Got mine in yesterday, checked it out a little while ago.
    The cybertronian altmodes from the toon are what caught my eye the most.
    Always happy to get a new copy of these books in!

    So this comic appears to be expanding on an Ask Vector Prime post from 2015 detailing how during Binaltech, Ravage’s time meddling caused a temporal anomaly that made duplicates of Primal and his crew (from the American version of BW, not the Japanese), and sent them to the BT World. It also explains why the Air Attack Optimus Primal toy isn’t cartoon-accurate to Beast Machines: it was never his BM body!

    I've cleaned Sam's scans a bit, and in the meantime I've put Optimus firmly on the side picture. :)

    Thank you, but without your work it would not have been possible. :)

    Should've given you the original scans to work from!

    Funny thing about this book is that in real life the blue on the coloured drawing is painted so dark that you can't even make out the black pencilled lines. It was only actually visible on the scan!

    It usually happens with this type of magazines.
    One last thing.

    Mine came early today. :D  I *love* these magazines. Even the Siege stuff is fun to look at in them. Makes me miss the old little paper catalogs that used to come with TFs lol. The art work on the cover is such a wonderful blend of old and new, too.

    Amazing work enhancing Sam's scans, @tomac66
