I may actually get this. I wonder if it's got EVERYTHING--I'm not too well-versed on Japanese TFs, those in the Headmaster/Micromaster era, or European exclusives...

Eh... unless it goes into rarities, this seems to just be a book made to capitalize on the success of the movie and not for me. I already have my Cybertronian TRGs, 3 Alverez books, and a few other guides that I can't think of now...
This book has a picture of Bumblebee on the cover. :-/
However, I'll check it out if I see it in a bookstore and thumb through it.

I can sum this book up on a post card: Any TF is worth more than gold if your hearts into collecing them, otherwise, it's just worthless diecast parts and plastic.
For me, my hearts in it!

I'd have to see how the pictures are layed out before I decided if I wanted it. I already own (and love) the TRGs. I don't need a price guide. That'll be crap in a couple months, if it isn't already.

A prime sold for $1100 damn. How do you tell if a figure is first edition? Do they just mean G1?
