Out now, published by Haynes Publishing, is an brand-spanking-new guide to the live-action Transformers movie (featuring ALL the Autobots and Decepticons and a goodly number of the human cast too!). Top Trumps Transformers draws its inspiration from the recent Top Trumps deck of Transformers battle cards, but goes much, much further. For the in-depth lowdown on everyone from Optimus Prime to Starscream to Agent Simmons, Top Trumps Transformers really does have it all. This pocket-sized book is packed to rafters with illustrations, profiles, and detailed specs, making it the first truly comprehensive guide to the movie (soon to be released on DVD). It’s written by myself, and retails (considering everything that’s packed into its 192-pages) at the staggeringly low price of just £4.99/$9.95!

    Hey Simon,

    I don’t know about its status in the UK, but the movie was released on DVD in the US on October 16. So I’ve been enjoying several reviewings for a few weeks now 🙂

    that sounds and looks very cool. I hope i can get that.
    Yeah we just got it here in Australia too. UK losing out again?

    UK gets it on Dec 3rd, same day as Blade Runner: Final Cut.
    Goin’ to be an expensive month…

    I realised as I typed that bit about the DVD that it was probably already (or imminently) out in the US, but I didn’t figure it was worth going back and tinkering with. Thanks for the clarification, though.

    Will you be buying a copy Simon?

  6. simon furman says:

    Eh? I’ve got my (author) copies already. And very nice it looks too!

  7. Will says:

    Oh, I meant the movie rather than the book!

  8. simon furman says:

    Oh! Yes, I will. Unless someone at Hasbro or Paramount wants to send me a copy (drops broad hint!)
