Very awsome I wantz, but it's a bit pricey for a non-toy.

I bought the normal edition and I was a little dissapointed.
The book is cool but there are few pages for bots, the book is almost only about the environment of the game.
I was expecting lots of pages full of characters.

Yeah, I was a little underwhelmed by it, and spending another $125 for the same book again with another new art book? Thanks, but no thanks.

Tarter sauce! :BANG_HEAD:

They just HAD to go and make a bigger, better, and far more expensive version of that book! Neptune's beard, IDW! :BANG_HEAD:

I feel ya. Not sure how much bigger and better it is. The only real addition is the ten lithographs.

Of course, being a sucker for IDW Limited, I already preordered it.

Preorder link is here: http://idwlimited.com/series/transformers/transformers-art-of-the-fall-of-cybertron-red-label.html It's actually $100, not $125.

If you're a slipcase nerd like me you're going to be happy. The case has a great look & feel. :-B

At first I was like "damn, I should've waited for this one." Then I was like, "meh, this one doesn't have much more than a fancy cover."

Pass. Already own the unlimited one. And I gotta say, not as impressive as the Art of the Mass Effect Universe one. As was said before, not enough character pages.

But the regular version was 200 pages (according to TFwiki), and this new one is 250 pages (according to Amazon). That's fifty additional pages of new stuff. Image

This one is not listed on Amazon. Both page counts are the same. The new content is the slipcase and the lithographs, all interior pages should be equal.

But the book itself does look thicker in the video.

And since I don't have my book on hand atm I can't check for sure, but don't those first few inside pages in the video look new compared to the regular version?

The first few pages are new, yes. We always re-do the end papers to match the style choices we make w/ the cover and slipcase. We also add a vellum overlay to the title page, in this case the target outline on Optimus which turned out awesome. Other than that, the content is the same.
