Overview

For the first time ever, Transformers Vault reveals the complete story of the Transformers, everyone's favorite robots in disguise. Loaded with never-before-seen images, this book is a guide to the epic battle between the Autobots and Decepticons, as it began with toys and television, and continued to comics, film, games, and other media. There's something here for all generations, from classic toys that have become sought-after collectibles to the amazing, high-tech visuals of the three live-action films.

Hasbro has opened its official archives, gathering more than 250 images and several featured pieces of memorabilia. Look inside for a sheet of Generation One tech specs with a secret revealer, a rare pencil sketch from comics artist Casey Coller, an unseen character profile for Hot Rod from the 1986 film, an animation cel, and much more. Exclusive photos of Japanese Transformer prototypes, archival development art, and brand-new information about the future of the Transformers make this the ultimate package for every fan.

    Takes me back to my childhood.

    This book is for anyone who collected the toys, watched the various tv series, and even enjoyed the movies. Ebery once in a while in the book, the reader will be treated to a pocket that contains something interesting. I especially enjoyed the specs on the robots that looked exactly like the onces that came with each of the toys. I also thought the map of Cybertron, the Transformer home planet, was pretty neat.
