      I'm from the UK and have not received the copies of the book

    2. Creator Philip Reed on September 17, 2013

      @ Schmari - Sorry about the lateness. I checked and it looks like your info came in exactly when I was at GenCon so I missed the mail. I'm out of town now but can ship yours on Friday once I'm back home.

      Still haven't received my copy...

    4. Creator Philip Reed on July 21, 2013

      @leonardo - As soon as the backers who bought copies for sale announce where to buy books I'll run an update here.

      The next book will be a Kickstarter project. And there will be an option in the next project to get the first and second book.

    8. Creator Philip Reed on July 5, 2013

      @Mark and Andrew - You guys keep saying nice things like that and you'll make me wish my job was to sit at home and publish books about toys. Thank you!

    9. PastePotPete on July 5, 2013

      Got my book last week, thanks a lot! It looks great!

    10. Andrew George on July 2, 2013

      I receive my book in MD this past Saturday. Thanks Philip, it looks amazing!

    11. Creator Philip Reed on June 29, 2013

      @Greg M - Thank you, Greg! I've got a few different toy book projects at various stages. A Glyos book, an idea for a Kenner book . . . and a sequel to this book! I wanted this one to feel like a professional work and plan to use this same size and format for other books.

    12. Greg M on June 29, 2013

      The book arrived and it's great. Like Tekwych, I will be checking it out in more detail this weekend, but wanted to let you know I received it and to say I think it's extremely well done.

      Can't wait for the next Phil Reed Kickstarter! 8-)

    13. Creator Philip Reed on June 25, 2013

      @ Tekwych - Great news! And thanks, I hope it's as professional as we could hope for.

    14. Tekwych on June 25, 2013

      They are HERE! looks great Philip. Just a quick thumb through but very nice. Hopefully I'll get to read it this weekend.

      P45. Eyesight has a page reference that is unknown. Either P37 or P36.

      P45, reference to CrazyDevy and normal rifle.
      I believe P37 is CrazyDevy, P36 is normal.

      P44, "Neckbreaker, like Exgraver (see p. 00)
      Should be "Neckbreaker, like Exgraver (see p. 42)

    18. Mathew Ignash on November 3, 2012

      No problem, I'm looking forward to writing the wiki page on the book, and using the book as a citation in the articles about third party Transformers. I hope we can get some of the people interested in the book to edit on the Wikialpha pages too. I am keenly interested in 3rd party Transformers, but have a VERY limited budget, so I can't own most of them.

    19. Creator Philip Reed on November 3, 2012

      Thanks, Mathew! I plan for there to be a little time for a proofing phase when everyone gets to see the PDF and tell me where my typos are. I'll make that fix now.

    20. Mathew Ignash on November 3, 2012

      I'm a bit of a proofreader, FYI, Hasbro has always used "Triple Changer" (caps and two words) not "triplechanger' (lowercase and one word).

      @PR - I am in iTunes under Geek Acres or directly at Geek Acres dot Net. I ended up having to bump recording till tonight(Monday). Work stuff, and all that. So, hopefully be able to send at least a few folks your way while there is still time ! M0@R P4G35 !!!!1!!

    22. Creator Philip Reed on September 24, 2012

      @Doug - I also want more pages. And sorry, I just never got a good recording for you and then got distracted and forgot all about it. What's the link to your podcast?

    23. Creator Philip Reed on September 24, 2012

      @Protoman - Thanks for helping out and getting us to this point!

    24. Protoman on September 23, 2012

      Congrats on getting $4000, let's keep on going.

    25. Doug Rapson on September 23, 2012

      And we've topped FOUR GRAND ! I really want m0@r p4g35, though. C'mon $7500 !!! To that end, I'm recording my podcast later today and intend to chat up the book, along with the NJCC that hits in about two weeks. What is it about plastic crack and the fall ??? C'mon folks. One week to go... lets rally the troops.

    26. Creator Philip Reed on September 22, 2012

      @Sam - Thanks, Sam. The outline will be completed when the project ends and I have a final page count.

      Sam Bullock on September 22, 2012

      Really like the idea of this project. Question though- Have you done the framework for the book yet or are you just going to make it after the pledges?

    28. Creator Philip Reed on September 18, 2012

      @Greg - Thanks for joining, Greg! I doubt we'll see anything like the success we got with Ogre. But I really appreciate your support on this.

    29. Greg M on September 18, 2012

      Just read the Daily Illuminator, saw another Kickstarter with Philip Reed which triggered a bunch of great memories from the Ogre campaign and am now in as a Generation One Defender. I am looking forward to the book!

    30. Creator Philip Reed on September 17, 2012

      @Doug - Thank you for joining us, Doug. I hope you found the podcast a fun listen. Vangelus was great at steering us back to the topic we were supposed to focus on.

    31. Doug Rapson on September 17, 2012

      Thanks to the TFW podcast for putting me on to this one ! Can't wait to get the book. Hope we can 'stretch' it up to the next page-increase.

    32. Creator Philip Reed on September 17, 2012

      @Protoman - Thank you for backing! And I see now we've just hit $3,000 and unlocked the next stretch goal!

    33. Protoman on September 16, 2012

      Keep it coming guys, you have my full help and support

    34. Creator Philip Reed on September 6, 2012

      @Dana - Thank you, Dana. Hopefully we will get more backers so we can unlock more stretch goals.

    35. TBD Toys on September 6, 2012

      Wow congrats on being funded already! Great book idea obviously!

    36. Creator Philip Reed on September 3, 2012

      @Rickard - Thanks! I hope you enjoy the project over the next few weeks and the book once it is completed. I'll be posting new material as often as I can between now and when the project closes.

    37. Rickard Edlund on September 3, 2012

      Im a transformer fan and this seems cool so therefore I decided to support this, also it will be cool to have a book filled with fun transforming bots :D
