    I assume it will. But I’m also curious if any more foil variant covers will happen like with vol 1.

    Yes.
    It’s nice to have the Gilthor story officially available. More people need to see his awesome character design.
    Yeah, I did a double take when I saw that typo. Then I realized who Kenji was inside.

    Pretty good chance since Amazon isn't using Diamond distribution.

    Rightstuf also has this on sale for the 5/12. They don't charge me tax (8.89% here in NY!!!) so I'll probably get it there. along with some other stuff.

    Yeah my preorder for Volume 2 still shows delivery tomorrow. Hopefully it will!

    Edit: Amazon just charged my card for the preorder!

    Looks great, and thicker than Volume 1! Also a hardcover!

    Is there any news of Vol 2 getting a foil PX version like Vol 1 did?

    I'm glad I forgot to cancel my order for Volume 2. The book is really awesome next to Volume 1. I didn't look online, but is this one longer than Volume 1? This Volume sure seems like it stacked next to Volume 1.

    Edit: Whoops, didn't see Foster already say it is thicker. Sorry!

    If you want any of them on time order from Book Depository. They also flat pack stuff so it doesnt get damaged (which has happened to literally every book I'ver ordered from amazon , arrived all dinged up)

    Just wanted to follow up my old post and say the above illustrations are in Vol. 2. These books are so amazing!

    I read mine over the weekend and loved it! It wasn't quite as absurd as the first volume, maybe because Headmasters and especially Masterforce already lean pretty hard into Super Robot ridiculousness, but I liked how they sort of adapted the stories of the two series while adding the teensiest backstory.

    According to the little blurb at the end, I'm super excited for the third volume, because it's gonna collect all the weird comic-only Zone and Battlestars stuff, which I've always been mega curious about! Gonna call it a birthday present to myself, if that Amazon release date holds true. :D

    Have to sit down and read through vol 2 thoroughly, but flipping through it I'll probably connect better with it than vol 1.

    Also I know it's always been his thing, but Fangry/Wilder drawn with fur in beast-mode is still kind of a "stop and make sure you saw that right" moment whenever I see it.

    I enjoyed Vol.2 but I'm also really looking forward to Vol.3 as Victory is my favorite of the Japanese shows.

    Any news on more volumes coming in the future? I would love to get the Japanese Beast Wars mangas released like this.

    Unfortunately, the best source of any "news" is a listing on Amazon and nothing yet.

    I'd love BWII, Neo, and Metals Manga. I have untranslated scans since the original books are a little out of my budget.
