Transformers: A Visual History - art book by Jim Sorenson
Posted 24 December 2019 - 03:09 AM
It was nice to have all these art assets from the assorted existing books (I remembered going through it that Transformers has had a nice run of art books, from the Almanacs to Legacy to the books for FOC and Prime) and taken further with tons of additional stuff from the many years of the brand. I hadn't seen so much of this anywhere, such as the promo posters (that Victorion/Devastator one was great, as was the Lioconvoy/Galvatron x-rays). Loved seeing the Legends card art, and the models from Forged to Fight! Wish we could've gotten more Unicron Trilogy stuff but I was thrilled to see what was there.
I will say that there was a distinct lack of Scioli material, with I think only two pages (a page and a cover) lumped in with the Crossover stuff. It'd have been nice for that very unique (for Transformers) design sense to have gotten more page space. Ditto more stuff from latter IDW, like Kei Zama's work, and more from the Unicron miniseries. And, as Randy noted previously, more recent Takara stuff, although apparently that's easier said than done (aren't most requests?).
Of course, there's only so much room, and it isn't any less of a great book for all that.
SO OKAY IT'S AVERAGE
Virtually every custom as good as the title suggests!
