We knew there would be a Transformers Busy Book coming out soon but we didn't know what it lookd like or which figures it woudl include. Amazon updated their listing with images of the book, the playmat it comes with and the 12 figures for you to place on the playmat and play with. There are 12 figures in total which are 6 characters in their robot and alt modes. These are all G1 based with slight cartoon styles that were previously found on the Go Karts. It is unsure if this style is just for merchandising or for future media.

The figures included with this busy book are:

Optimus Prime and his truck alt mode
Bumblebee and his car alt mode
Hot Rod and his car alt mode
Megatron and his tank alt mode
Soundwave and his suburban alt mode
Starscream and his jet alt mode

A while back, fellow Seibertronian triKlops brought to our attention a curious listing via eBay and AliExpress of something like the Transformers Visualworks from 2007, though in a Chinese reprint. The initial book was a Japanese exclusive collection of artwork from Generation 1 and 2 including Studio Ox, Ban Magami, Hidetsugu Yoshioka and more, and covering the likes of The Headmasters, Super-God Masterforce, and Victory. Via confirmation on staff, it looks like this new version of the book is indeed fully licensed, and still available via online marketplaces (such as eBay) for a much lower price than the original. Find out more below!

triKlops wrote:So now, almost 10 years later (11/16) after its publishing date, a Chinese reprint of the book has surfaced.
Published by Tarkus via the Zhejiang Gongshang University Press, this looks to be a fully accredited reprint of the book.

At first I was expecting a KO reprint, like the Transformers Generations Chinese reprint, that was available a few years ago for those of us who couldn't afford the original or the deluxe versions.

However, after perusing the credits page, the original Million Publishing book is credited as well as being full of Hasbro :HASBRO: TM and copywriting info.
The page count matches exactly, so no info has been lost in this copy.
By all accounts, this is as legit as its going to get any time soon.

From Italian agency Phasar, we have news of a new book that fleshes out some more of the weird history of toys released in Italy pre-dating the anglophone world's arrival onto the scene: the Ferrareses' Dieci Anni nel Paese delle Meraviglie ('Ten Years in Wonderland'). If you don't know of the various claims to fame from different companies as to 'who had Transformers first', if you think the whole thing was hilarious, if you just want to find out more - and if you can read Italian - this is probably the book for you! Check out the blurb and its English translation (from yours truly) below, including the salty contents about Hasbro.

Un volume che ripercorre la realizzazione delle pubblicità per i giocattoli GIG nel periodo 1976-1986: l’esperienza umana e professionale di Alberto Ferrarese, socio e titolare dell’agenzia Phasar di Firenze; aneddoti, ricordi e retroscena dei protagonisti dell’epoca e della nascita delle varie campagne pubblicitarie; tutte le immagini degli spot televisivi e delle uscite sul settimanale Topolino dei prodotti GIG più importanti e conosciuti.

[...]

• Micronauti, GIG e Jeeg Robot: correlazioni e assonanze vincenti.
• L’inedito retroscena dietro la realizzazione dei Micronauti magnetici verdi e rossi (Green Baron e King Atlas).
• Dai Micronauti a Diaclone a Trasformer: l’evoluzione del concetto di “trasformazione”.
• Trasformer: l’origine del nome della linea e perché non fu GIG a copiare Hasbro.


A book that follows the path that led to the creation of adverts for the GIG toys, during 1976-86: the human and professional experience of Alberto Ferrarese, owner and associate of the Florence-based Phasar agency; anecdotes, memories and backstage stories on the main players of the time and the birth of the various advertising campaigns; all the images from the TV spots and the weekly Topolino [Mickey Mouse] appearances of the more important and famous GIG products.

[...]

• Micronauts, GIG and Jeeg Robot: winning correlations and associations.
• The never-seen-before story behind the creation of the magnetic green and red Micronauts (Green Baron and King Atlas).
• From Micronauts to Diaclone and Trasformer [not a typo!]: the evolution of the notion of 'transformation'.
• Trasformer: the origin of the toyline's name and why it wasn't GIG who copied Hasbro.
