One of the great perks of living in Japan is being able to get Japanese Transformers and products as soon as they are released. And if you haven't guessed already - I live in Japan; so last week I picked up the new Transformers Collection 2007, by Dengeki Hobby Books.

The book, itself, is 95 pages long and includes Transformers from Takara from 2004 - 2007. The book is divided into five sections:
Part 1 - Movie 2007
Part 2 - KISS Players
Part 3 - Technical Transformers
Part 4 - Various Transformers
Part 5 - Transformers Extras


Not much is known about this book (partly because it is written in Japanese); but don't let that stop you from picking it up. Large, clear, and colorful pictures fill the entire book and are printed on fine quality paper. The figures are laid out according to their toy number. Each character has a stats listing and description. The photos show the figures in robot mode, alt mode, close-up head shots, gimmicks, and automorph features. There is also lots of concept art, which add hours of interest even for non-Japanese readers.

MP Megatron - Concept art
Note: opening chest, the Heart of Cybertron and Spark, the Key to Vector Sigma, and the gun and dagger hilt store in the leg compartments

The errors were scathing to some. To others they put it aside, and chalked it up as an IDW rush job with so much happening on the TF comics front lately.

Chris Ryall has heard the complaints, the comments, and the criticisms and he calmly replies, taking the blame for the book upon his shoulders, and promising better things:

"Hey, everyone--

In the time we've been doing Transformers comics, there have been highs and lows for the fans, I know. As there's going to be on anything -- some projects work better than others, for various reasons.

This one seems to be ranking somewhere near the first issue of the TF Animated Series for most of you, from the responses I've seen.

Which sucks all around--the last thing we want to do is release product that doesn't work for you. Especially since this particular book took so long to finally arrive. And because so many artists and colorists labored over it. And because Simon and Ben Yee did the same, and then waited patiently for the book to finally be assembled and released.

So for the person who just e-mailed me very angry and said "once again, IDW screws its fans," well, that's hardly true and hardly a sound approach to business, I would think. And nothing we would ever set out to do.

So what happened?

That's a good question. But there's really no need for me to make excuses or air any beasty-smelling laundry, so I'll just say that the book is, like everything we publish, ultimately my responsibility. This book was one that sort of slipped through the crack while I was dealing with an editorial shift, and it went out with some errors. Book Two was completed during this same period. But Andrew is here as the TF Editor now, and is extremely competent and he and I will do what we can to ensure the rest of the books are produced as they should be. As many errors are able to be corrected in the collected version will be fixed, too.

I know that this book was a bit of a disappointment for fans who waited so long. Transition with art teams or editorial teams can cause hiccups that are evidenced in the finished product, but certainly not on purpose.

So know that I share your pain on this--maybe moreso, since so many people have shared their pain with me--but also know that putting out something you don't love is never our intent. We'll get 'em next time."


You can see the original IDW Forum thread here.

While they cannot undo what has been done, and there are no promises made that things will be corrected in the Trade Paperback release, we do know that this will be a focus for them to get the remaining issues right.

One can never get enough mini-cons...

And apparently, this collector has taken it even further than many of us ever imagined possible. He was able to procure himself two previously un-released packages of minicons.

As you can clearly see in the photos, these were ready to be produced, but then trashed at the last minute making only a small handful available (--yes, it's that old story again--).

Black Gears.com was able to get these super rare samples, making many of us envious, and has now taken in package pictures to share with the community at large.



Enjoy knowing that this is yet another very rare collectible that many of us will never, ever own (and many won't care to either...)!

Unreleased G2 Ramjet Desert Camouflage Prototype Toy Review

Any fans of the seekers have probably been looking at this picture and the other un-released artworks from G2 and salivating.

Well, prepare to increase drooling, as TF-1.com reviews this very rare prototype toy, G2 Ramjet 'Desert Camouflage' version.

Not only is it fun to read about the history, but it is also very cool (and yet sad) to see the direction G2 may have gone, had it lasted longer. It is also interesting to see the toy piece at this stage, and imagine what it would look like as a completed final version.

Enjoy the review, and remember, our buddy Ramjet gets his own IDW comic book Spotlight coming up this November. Probably won't have the camouflage color scheme, but the tough attitude, and head on collisions are sure to be there a plenty!

For comparisons, you can also check out the extensive Seibertron.com galleries of Generation One Ramjet, and Classics Ramjet, and the rest of his incarnations here!


(Rumor) Collector's Club Magazine Hints At Next Two Membership Exclusives? (Spoiler!)

Ever since the dawn of the new collector's club, and the first offering for membership being Skyfall, the recolored version of Energon Skyshadow, and the information that each year a new piece would be added to the set in the end creating a new version of an Energon combiner, speculation has abounded as to who the other limbs will be, and who they will use to create the torso.

Apparently, that bit of the mystery surrounding the club may be over.

The new portion of the club comic, "Crossing Over" features a picture that leads one to believe the remaining limb and torso will be...


S P O I L E R


Limb

Torso

Only time will tell if these are actually correct, and what the final color schemes will be.

Many folks will be happy (like me), and many possibly disappointed, if this news is true.

We'll tell you more when we know it, but don't expect scans of the picture from the club magazine, as that is against the wishes of the club and its members to share information like that until it is officially released to all of the Transformers Community.

Assume people will discuss the molds, so avoid the article, and the discussion if you do not want to know!
