Unofficial Photographic Archive vol 1 and 2

UPDATE: Transformers G1 Unofficial Photographic Archive
Is now live on Kickstarter!

Please note that we recognize that this quality level and price point is unconventional for books covering this particular subject matter. However, lower quality materials, or sacrificing on page count to bring down production costs, was never an option. The goal since the start of this project was to put together our dream reference books. The printing, the paper choice, and the embossed scuff-free hard covers, are all contributing factors in the making of what we humbly believe will be true masterpieces.

This unified sleek look and overall high quality will enable us to welcome the possibility of future expansions to the one cohesive set. If this campaign is successful, other volumes might be added to the Archive.

We are extremely excited to make our dream books available to you! We hope they will become your dream books as well!

So, a few years ago at tfcon, a bunch of you guys kept telling me to make a book, so I got together with a couple friends of mine (Hyperoptic on TFW and Heroic Decepticon on TFW and his blog) to do just that, and for the last year have dedicated a ton of time and effort to it. So here's the official announcement:



Brought to you by Ocular Echo, over a year in the making, more than 10,000 photos shot... from Afterburner to Wreck-Gar, Headmasters to Targetmasters and Minispies to Mailaways... we present you the unofficial Photographic Archive featuring all US, European and Japanese G1 Transformers. Coming to a solar system near you in 2017. Enjoy an energon fizzy for sharing and two if shared with a robotic lifeform!

Update: prototype is printed. Will be at tfcon next week

I think this would be an excellent reference material for those of us like myself who are less familiar with G1 post-movie. I'm in for one.

Re: Unofficial Photographic Archive vol 1 and 2

This is exactly the type of reference book I'm looking for.

Did you manage to get official Dinocassette pics in there?

Count me in for both. Really nicely done, brr-icy. Top notch.
