First up, in a trio of books set for June 09 release, is Dorling Kindersley’s Transformers: The Movie Universe, an updated and expanded version of the Movie Guide I did back in 07. Completely revised and redesigned, the book encompasses characters from both Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and includes feature spreads on the human cast, protoforms and more. Packed with images from the movies and amazing digital renders of the robotic cast, TMU gives you an in-depth lowdown on new characters such as Sideswipe, Jetfire, Skids/Mudflap, Devastator, Ravage and The Fallen, plus a more comprehensive guide to the core cast from the first movie, including Starscream, Ironhide, Optimus Prime and more. Robot mode, vehicle mode and weapons mode are all examined in minute detail, with facts, figures and detailed image annotations. So, if you want to know who’s who and what’s what in the (movie) world of Transformers, this book is a must-have. If you’re of a mind to (pre-) order from Amazon it can be found here (for the UK) and here (for the US).

    Cool, sign me up for that book. No offense intended, Simon, but I was rather disappointed with the 2007 Movie Guide. It seemed rather brief and sparse on detail, like you were not given much material to work with or you couldn’t spoil much. I hope the movie people provided you and DK with the appropriate material this time! 🙂
