    I am not sure entirey sure which forum would be the best fit for this question, so mods feel free to move it to a more appropriate place.


    Over the course of the years, there have been quite a few official and unofficial source books with toy pictures of Transformers. Most prominently in my memory are

    The Official Masterpiece Guide (2014),
    The Ultimate Guide to Vintage Transformers Action Figures (2016),
    yearly(?) editions of Transformers Generations (201x), and
    some unofficial G1 centered book that I have seen anounced on these boards last year.

    I was wondering about the following:
    - Is there a newer/updated version of the Official Masterpiece Guide around? It ends with MP-22 (Ultra Magnus) and there have been a ton of releases since then.
    - Is there a book that showcases the catalog pictures of each year? (the small folded inserts that came with the boxed toys)
    - Are there any other good books that I am missing?

    There's some great unofficial ones, a series called "Cybertronian". They include pictures of the toyline mostly, accessories, tech-specs and some commentary.
