Great book if you love Transformers, or want to learn how to draw and need some inspiration. Nice thick book with quality paper stock.
I finally discovered the Japanese G1 series by way of the sub-titled UK DVD releases from Metrodome and boy, was I happy. Happy to not be stuck watching the awful dubbed versions and happier still to watch more unfolding stories and action in the G1 universe. There is so much information is packed into this volume, affording fans the opportunity to get clues into the thought process behind the scenes.
The unused HM robot & alt designs were really intriguing and showed how the creators wanted to venture into unusual territory for Transformers - I almost wish some of them had been included and would trade the Bee Planet for such an appearance!
This books contains black and white pictures of the various Transformers found in each series. The pictures depict the front and back views of robot modes and alt-modes of these many characters.
The only thing I would wish for is for the pictures to be in color, and for more pictures and/or bigger pictures. However, I understand that colors would make the book more expensive, and it would be difficult to find more pictures, since they might be rare to obtain.
All in all, it is a good resource book if one wants to draw these Japanese G1 Transformer characters. =)
