Sorry but had to laugh when Ironhide made remark about the "vermin" problem (the dog) and how he suggested eliminating sam's parents "painlessly"




lol. I liked that part too.

"Sorry-he has this male dominance thing." :lol:


Haha...who says the male dominance thing, because I find that pretty funny.

I've said it once, I'll say it again... this was a dumb decision to release the book (and soon comic adaption) before the movie comes out! Talk about killing the surprises of the movie!

Anyway, thanks go out to everyone who has held back spoilers! ;)^ I really appreciate it! Let's just hope no one's an a-hole and ruins things for those of us who are waiting for the movie. I really don't want to have to abandoned the board until I see the movie at Botcon.

With so much weirdness in the names (Brawl is confirmed, no? We have toy packagings already!), and the similarity to Prime Directive, I hope dear Alan Dean Foster had got the wrong sources.

I only read a few posts because I don't want to ruin anything. This story was written to be a film, so that is how I want to experience it the first time. Preferably at Botcon with many other TF fans.

I did read and enjoy the prequel book.

i've had it since last friday, but i haven't read it yet. i'm thinking about reading it with all the G1 incarnations of these characters in my head at the time, going to see the movie, and noting the differences

How does something like the wrong names make it into the novelization? Didn't anybody think that maybe they should update the authors of there product? Or did the editor just say "F@ck it."

Thats really sad, even for a movie novelization.

I was looking forward to the book, too.

I didnt mind the prequel book. I will end up buying this as well, once I find it, but I may hold off on reading it until I see the movie. I read the book, then saw the movie for Star Wars Ep2, and it kinda made the film look worse than it was.

Although Sunstar's spoilers may have already ruined it for me! ;P

You'd think you'd be used to it, they do it with every single novelization of every single movie ever to get a novelization.

Meh, Lucas did they same thing with Episode 3. The novel and game came out a week prior to the movie release. However there wasnt really anything to spoil (Hard to belive a kid in school wanted me to stop talking about it because he didnt want the movie spoiled for him) (And nobody saw the Anakin into Darth Vader part coming)

I read it today at Borders. Skipped right to the end and found it really good.
Starscream's actions at the end of the book will leave G1 fans very nostalgia-y.
And beleive me if that ending doesn't set up a sequel than nothing does.

I knew I would get this reply. Anyway, yes, I know it happens all the time, but it doesn't change the fact that I feel it's poor marketing and that it pisses me off royally!

As far as I can tell the story is the same as the leaked script up to this point. Dialogue varies, certain aspects of the scenes are different, but altogether relativly the same.

I'll see about posting a review (Spoiler and non spoiler versions if I have time) sometime this week.



your so awesome!! i love this forum!! :D

Has anyone seen either of these books in the UK? Ghosts of Yesterday is impossible to find.

I have been looking for a new book that isn't about vampires.

I think I'll hold off until A) I find the prequel novel in the library and read that and B) Watch the movie.

Sunstar, I hope you are being your usually silly self. ;)

Just don't tell me if Blackout and/or Brawl bite the dust. They are two of the coolest looking characters they've created for this film and I'll be rather... disappointed if they're killed off. Besides, I'd rather find out for myself rather than have someone tell me.
