I'd love to get my hands on some of those, especially the Deathsaurus to go with Star Saber.

Thanks for sharing this with us, TCracker.

This book looks like it's in a similar style to the popular (and rare) Transformers Generations book from Japan in 2000. If so, I'm all over this book. For as many Transformers as I own (somewhere over 3,000), I don't own a single Kabaya Transformer. This would be a fascinating book to browse through to see what is out there that I haven't even touched yet.

Will definitely pick this up. I love the Kabaya Kits. They're nice for helping me with my scale issues.

I have the following:

Blaster
Getaway (pictured above)
Brainstorm
Highbrow
Gripper
Flame
Lightspeed
Several Worlds Smallest size like that Powermaster Prime above.
Energon Hot Shot
Energon Prowl
Energon Rodimus
Energon Inferno

They differ from the originals only in size and colour. I've had a friend repaint Gripper and Highbrow for me. I'm waiting for him to finish Blaster, Getaway, Flame and Lightspeed.

Blaster is similar in size to G1 Springer in bot mode. Brainstorm and Highbrow are Scout size and look nice against Snapdragon's dragon mode or with Scorponok looming over them. Gort and Arcana are similar in size to Diaclone drivers and are as poseable and transformable as the original Nebulans. Shame you can't get Hardhead, Weirdwolf or the others.

Flame, Gripper and Lightspeed are similar in size to the Headmasters and come with the armour for Road Caeser. The smaller size only lends itself to the drama when you face them off against Overlord as on the Euro packaging. OK, I havent got Overlord but someday.... Scorponok or Megastorm (the horned Trypticon) will suffice for now.

Powermaster Prime looks nice rolling out of Metroplex.

The Energon figures are similar to Legends in size. Pity, cause I'd kill for Scout versions of Hot Shot and Prowl.

Sorry for digressing. Don't often get a topic about the Kabayas and they're very cool. Can't wait for that book. Primus, if I find out Weirdwolf and Hardhead are available in that scout-ish size, I'll have another couple of grails on my hands.

I figured it out thanks to you ... we're all making this too difficult. We can just go to their english website and order the book there.

i preordered this one at the beginning of the month
http://www.capturedprey.com/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=584
still waiting for the arrival but it will be worth it
a six figure combiner seems really ambitious for these, but the flicks look cool so we will see what happens
plus its a guaranteed set with no dupes
