Transformers Vault: The Complete Transformers Universe Book Review

About the Book: 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.

Our Take: The Transformers Vault is a great new book from Abrams that chronicles the history of the robotic franchise.  This book starts from the birth of the toyline and cartoon all the way to the films and cartoons of today!  The book gives a ton of cool interactive inserts, such as actual toy catalogs from the 1980s, animation cels and cool pull-out posters!  There is a ton of detailed history about the Generation One Transformers to Beast Wars and Armada all the way to the new Transfomers: Prime cartoon on HUB.   I'm not a huge fan of the new films, but the book does cover them well, including some concept art from the new Dark of the Moon film.  This is an absolute must-have for Transformers fans serious and casual alike!
