    I’m happy with the cover, although I do admit it’s an odd choice.

    Looking at the comments, did I miss something? Is this book only the history of G1 and they made an oops by picking CGi prime for the cover? More proof people think transformed is just G1 and the last 32 years of Transformers was just trash and people are supposed to agree. Technically G1 should take 10% of the book if you want to think about how long it was on TV vs Bayverse. If you\'re choosing not to buy it cause it\'s not just G1 then I feel sorry for you.

    I was hoping for more concept art.. this has aloto art
    Already shown in previous coffee table books.. I want a book with all the development process.. starting with that terrible 07 Prime concept.. it's the process that intrigues.. don't need another broken History TF book

    I hope this covers every base and not just G1 and the movies. I\'m gonna try and buy it.

    I saw a tiny pic of G1 Jazz.
    I'm waiting to see if there are more pics of him and The Twins ( Sunny and Sides).
    The artwork looks amazing.

    Armada, beast wars, beast machines, victory force, animated , rid, and many other others I don’t feel like naming off

    That sounds familiar wait I have been saying that for years live action movies took people who where not transformer fans who buy comics, toys who do not read comics watch cartoons play games took those people turn them into transformer fans those new transformer fans do not like cartoons, comics, video games , toys but they live live action films.

    Book is nice but it does nothing for me

    Got to keep in mind that Bayformers 4 made billions of overseas bucks over the even the first one, so at the very least it's an image that's synonymous with the character (thought the rest of the model is HIGHLY debatable)

    G1 Prime or this would change nothing really, but it's gonna be the one who will pick up the book first that'll make the dosh will see that image first.

    It would have been better to have sigils on the cover, Bayverse covers are going to kill interest from folks who never liked the movies.

    So we’re just not going to talk about how that cover is literally the bi flag? Surely I’m not the only one who’s noticed that.

    First off, no it isn't. Second of all, you shouldn't have a problem with that by now

    I don’t have a problem with it at all. Just thought it was a funny observation.

    This is a cool art book. BUT what i have been waiting for is a TF Toy guide of the toy line from 2001 to now.

    The book is legit called “Transformers A Visual History Book.” Meaning it won’t be just G1. Don’t act so shocked whenever something isn’t G1 on or in the book, it’s the history of the entire brand.

    Previews look good, but I’m curious how much of the content would be new to me. I’ve picked up a lot of Transformers books over the years and the only real gap I’m missing is Bayformers concept art (other than the original Ark books with G1 animation character art, shame on me. But at least those already exist.)

    I passed the book just by the cover of Bay Movie alone. If the book is about representing all the TF Universe, than the cover fails.
