...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.Read more ›
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.
IDW needs to produce a graphic novel to complete the series as intended.
Highly Recommended for any Transformers Fan!
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.Read more ›
