This is by far the best issue of the Transformers: Animated Allspark Almanac series ever made.

To sort-of quote Yuuto Sakurai/Kamen Rider Zeronus from Toei's "Kamen Rider Den-O", "Let me say this to start..."

...I LOVE THIS BOOK.

Once again, Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster - plus the folks that worked on "Transformers: Animated" - comes through with another almanac that's chock-a-block filled with references to Transformers and non-Transformers materials that many can spend DAYS researching over. Some are rather easy to spot if you know your trivia (that could probably rival "Cash Cab"), while others requires a good deal of working the gray matter to puzzle out.

The first volume, Transformers Animated: The Allspark Almanac, covers the first two seasons of "Animated" and fans were immediately left clamoring for more. This volume covers season 3 of "Animated", characters that appeared on-show briefly or were planned but never implemented, and expands on things that might've been only mentioned once in the show. In addition, a glimpse at what would've been the thirteen episodes that would've made up season 4 had the show never been canceled, answering some wild-mass guessing questions all the while creating more. In-jokes, obscure references, A BOARD GAME, even a CROSSWORD PUZZLE (that albeit had a few glitches), and more stuff than you can shake a stick at.

It's not just the numerous references that is given, there's also sections that are in a behind-the-scenes fashion, such as storyboards with deleted scenes that never aired and Animated touching shores in Japan, as well box art as done by artist Marcelo Matere.

Transformers Animated was one of the best iteration of the Transformers brand not just a great tv series but also the quality of the toys that were made and there hasn't been anything better since. I have a 3 year old boy and a 2 year old girl who jump into dance and song when they hear the opening credits. Our collection of Transformers Animated figurines has been collecting dust until I received the new Almanac which sparked renewed interest in Transformers Animated in my son who's now playing with his Bulkhead and asking 'Where's the Headmaster?'.

Now about the Almanac, the best parts for me were the bits about actually making the series, the concept toys that were never made and then what could have been for season 4.

Transformers animated Is amazing! With more profiles of the heroic Autobots and evil Deceptions. They a lot give background information on the new characters form session 3, and give names to the characters that where just in the background. Even the ones Derrick Wyatt did for fun! show summers form session 3 tolled in the form of instant reports, personal journals, and news paper articles. There's even a section on how the toy is are made. All in all a great read!

I received my copy in the mail today. The book is incredible. It features art and bios of every character who appeared in the series (even the background characters seen on Cybertron who appeared on screen for a few seconds!). It's sad to see the concept art and plots for the 4th season that will never be produced.

IDW needs to produce a graphic novel to complete the series as intended.

Highly Recommended for any Transformers Fan!

Enjoying Transformers as more than just a toyline presents a staple diet of ups and downs. For years, we've been dealt constant sea changes across all manner of TF media, from animated series to comics to umpteen new attempts at continuity pinball. In the interests of full disclosure, I have to admit I've become rather jaded and sick of it all. I carry a great G1 bias from having grown up in the era, but I try to keep an open mind. Beast Wars felt fresh and new to me, while Beast Machines seemed meandering and cold. Since then, a gradual snowballing of TF products and interest coupled with numerous miasmatic live action movie tie-ins have made the world of TF media seem like a rotating wasteland of moving targets and hit-or-miss opportunities. Transformers: Animated really changed all that for me, and I really believe that Transformers Animated: The Allspark Almanac 2 (AA2) is perhaps the best literary tribute the show (and toyline, actually) could ever ask for. By that token, it's even more well-crafted and enjoyable than the first volume.

I realize talking up this book in such a forum is probably like preaching to the choir. Nevertheless, I found myself reading it today, realizing that there must be some folks out there who wouldn't like it, while maybe assuming said individuals would already carry such predispositions based on extant displeasure with the Animated concept. Be that as it may, this is the best Transformers book I can remember buying in recent memory. I try to recall the enjoyment I received from books like the Ultimate Guide and the various Generations books, but in doing so I can't associate such tomes with the obvious, evident, ever-loving joy of the concept that has gone into AA2.
