Just basically reiterating the pro's and con's of what others have said. If you are a child or some beginner, then this is a good starting point. There are not a lot of extras in the book (just pro-tips), so don't expect it to be like an almanac. There are four basic steps that start with a basic stick figure progressing to a finished lineart of each character followed by a colored picture of the lineart. I just wished that it would offer a front and back view of the characters; and side views with detached arms. Plus, no Knockout or human characters. Still, a slightly helpful supplement to screenshots/captures. It starts with how to draw the Autobot/Decepticon symbols.

Here's a list of the characters in the book (and it has no table of contents):
Optimus Prime
Bumblebee
Megatron
Startscream
Cliffjumper
Soundwave
Arcee
Airachnid
Ratchet
Breakdown
Bulkhead
Skyquake (which you can do Dreadwing, just a recolor :p )
Wheeljack
Vehicon

Don't get me wrong I like this book, it's light weight and great for kids who love to draw Transformer characters. But if you're an artist looking for references for this series, this book is pretty good for beginners, but it's not completely detailed, it comes in 4 steps for each character and takes drastic leaps in each step. Also for those who like Knockout, sorry guys but he isn't in this book. It's a good drawing book but not great.

This is one thin little art book. It's definitely for those who already have the foundations down and can use this as a quick reference. I personally wanted it to be more in-depth and was a little disappointed at some of the characters left out, but this is still worth the $5 price.

Not much to say. It's short, and really meant for kids, but it DOES give some good tips and references for drawing your own comics or something. If your kid is into trying to do their own comic books like my nephew and my godson, then it's probably worth it. I bought three (one for each of us!), and both boys love drawing the characters as best they can, so like I said- get it if your kid is in to drawing transformers.

This book seem like it's might be pretty good it does show you how to begin some to the middle and to finish, but I would like to have it little bit more step-by-step so it wasn't Amazon's it's the people who made the book should done just a little bit better job show you little but more on the middle and how to finish it completely. So five out five stars I would give it a five star

I bought this so I could learn to draw some Transformers for my son(s). I am not sure what I expected, but I think that there could have been more in this book. It's not bad, I just was apparently hoping for more.

...I just wish they had Knockout in it! They've got just about all the Tranformers you'd want to draw EXCEPT for Knockout. C'mon! He's obviously one of the best ;)

A very helpful guide for beginning artists who love drawing their favorite giant robots...and for those who are experienced as well. However, my only big gripe is something others have addressed as well: there's no tutorial for Knock Out!
