I believe this is the right thread for this, if not mods, please move to the correct forum.

I just found out about this Kickstarter through Phil Reed who is doing his own Kickstarter project on books of 3rd Party Transformers.
Visionaries has some cross over relevance to Transformers due to its TFUS/ TFUK pairing in the old comics as well as influencing some toys in the US line as well as TFA fiction.
Check the wiki link for more relevant background information @; http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Visionaries .

The book seems to be well priced for just one copy so it seems to be a good value for the money.
The Kickstarter itself is not halfway to goal yet so i was hoping some coverage on Seibertron might help to get this thing funded.

Just got my copy in and i am extremely happy i participated.
The book itself is a comprehensive, illustrated guide to the toys and fiction of Visionaries.
From packaging artwork to display photography of released and unreleased toys as well as original Kickstarter exclusive art, this book contains as comprehensive a guide to the fiction as anyone will find.
Apparently the pdf of the book and possibly the book itself will eventually be free to the public per the publishing deal with Hasbro.
Hopefully this means more people will be able to appreciate the work put into the book as well as the interesting world building behind the toys.

I would suggest contacting them through Kickstarter to find out when their open release will be.
Its a great, detailed little book; definitely worth a look.

For Visionaries, a casual fan.
My main interest is their relation to Transformers specifically and their place in that era of Hasbro line releases generally.
