one surprisingly huge set.
Powermaster Optimus Prime

2) Alternators Optimus Prime. Our newest designer, Justin Neese (aka Decoy13),
flexes his graphic design muscle with his g1-inspired sticker set for
Alternators Optimus / KP Ginrai.
Alternator Optimus Prime

3) Alternators Camshaft. Another piece of eye candy from Mr. Neese. His style
is unlike anything we've seen around here, and absolutely worth a look. There's
even an alternate version for use with BT Blue Prowl!
Alternator Camshaft

4) WST Slag: Adapted by yours truly for the Just-I-Toys version of Slag, this
set greatly improves on the set included with the toy, giving you cut lines that
were cut all the way through and an all-around better fit. You also get the
tiny stickers you need to give Slag some optics in Dino mode.

5) WST Grimlock: Sporting all the improved look and color of the WST Slag set,
this set also comes with alternate stickers to make WST Grimlock look more like
his cartoon counterpart.

Fellow transformers site The Energon Plant has interviewed David Cian, one of the writers of the Transformers novels a few year back. In the interview, Cian talks about how he got into writing as well as talking about his upcoming novel, which is the prequel to the Transformers Movie currently in post-production, called 'Ghosts Of Yesterday'.

"I knew that the movie was coming out and that it was likely there was going to be at least one book. I kept talking about it with the people involved and when the opportunity was available, my agent got in touch with the publisher who had been planning on contacting me anyway. It worked out nicely for everyone, I think".
