Cybertronian: The Unofficial Transformers Recognition Guide is back!

Yes Jim Sorenson has posted something very interesting on his blog Disciples of Boltax. He posted that the guide "Cybertronian: The Unofficial Transformers Recognition Guide" is being reprinted in Manga style.
To read the original post with photos please click here.

I've just learned that the best English-language guide to Transformers Generation-One toys is going to once again become available. Cybertronian: The Unofficial Transformers Recognition Guide (volumes 1 - 3) are being reformatted as Cybertronian: Unofficial Transformers Guide Pocket Manga #1. This is excellent news! These books are impossible to find and fetch stupidly insane prices on the secondary market. They cover, in exhaustive detail, every Transformer released in the US from 1984 - 1987. All modes and reasonable permutations are present, along with every accessory.

You can see Metroplex 'powered-up' with scramble-city type robots on his arms and legs, or Trypticon connected to Motormaster and Onslaught. Abominus' unusual posability is demonstrated, and you can see every bit of Fort Max clear as day. It's really a terrific volume if you're at all a fan of the classic toys.

The book also goes into detail about merchandise available at the time and provide brief summaries of some of the television shows and comic issues.

Perhaps the ONLY flaw with this book is that to cover the whole G1 toyline, you need to get five volumes. This repackaging mitigates even that problem. I imagine that the 2nd manga compilation will cover V4-5 plus G2, putting all of these guide pages into just two book. At a price of $15, it's far far far too good to pass up. I pretty much can't recommend this book enough. Buy the Cybertronian now!

June 29th Update:

Doug Dlin, one of the authors, informs me that it's actually closer to the Field Guide, which covers the first three years of toys, with some new material added. So, unlike the Recognition Guide, no merchandise and a little lighter on the text. Still, in my mind, it's the photos that provide the real value and those are present. The book should be out in late July, and there should be some at the SDCC. Doug has also graciously allowed me to show the new cover by Kelsey Shannon. Obviously Transformers and all related characters are owned by Hasbro, but this specific cover image is copyright Antarctic Press, used with permission.


He also posts a link to the first volume on amazon.

Fender Bender found out about a new sale at ToysRus:

All this week, Toys R Us will be having the following:

$9.99 Deluxes
$17.99 Voyagers
$39.99 Leaders

For the most part, it's the same, HOWEVER, if you buy $30 worth of Transformers, you get a $10 collectible gift card featuring Bumblebee on it!

You will have to do the mathematics on your own to determine whether getting $10 back is better than 20% off, but buying two Voyagers for $35.98 and getting $10 back, thereby making them really $25.98 is a really good deal.

Check if the prices are active in your neighborhood by going to http://www.toysrus.com , clicking the "Check local ads" button, and typing in your zip code.

Does the new Transformers movie, Revenge of the Fallen, leave you wanting more and more Transformers toys? Check out what is soon to be available from TakaraTomy. The non-Constructicon Transformers are out in Japan, and we have a package image for you, as well as, new images from the TakaraTomy Transformers website.

TakaraTomy also has updated their website with their EZ collection (legends class) showing the 7 Constructicons in their alt mode images, and when you mouse over the middle purple section, it shows the combined form...Devastator!

Also, is a page linking to the other robots that have also been released here at US retail and have now been released in Japan: Optimus Prime, Jetfire, Megatron, Starscream, Sideswipe, Ratchet, Bumblebee, and Springer.

Real Devastator has also shared a picture with us from HK-TF.com showing the packaging for the EZ collection releases of the legends size figures. RD also shares that he has seen the non-Constructicon based Transformers all at retail stores. Notice in the image that the packaging is blind, no windows for you to see which TF you are getting. Japanese toy collectors should be familiar with this approach to smaller toy size, and collectibles releases.

The Devastator assortments are due out in July in Japan, and should be available from online stores soon after.
