Where to find this book

Postby xmod » Mon Jul 16, 2012 11:18 pm

Anyone know where I can buy a digital copy of the "Transformers: Identification And Price Guide" ?
In Canada of course.
I have searched and only found 1 site with a digital version, but upon adding to cart, it says the country im in does not allow me to purchase!?
Buying a hard copy of this book has become a farce, with a price tag of over 120.00$ CAN.

thanks in advance for any advice.

This book is available in digital format? That's news to me.

I once found it at my local Barnes and Noble, but i didn't get it and only skimmed through it.

On which site did you find the digital version of this book?
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Although any paperback price guides can get out of date, the book is amazing for identifying transformers and making sure they have all the parts to them.

Don't remember. It was years ago when I last saw it. :oops:

Makes sense, given how old and helpful it is.

IMHO, you might want to consider going for the physical book instead of the eBook should it prove the more feasible option.

There was a pocket size that was a little more affordable, but reading reviews let me conclude that it may not be as complete.

So... I did it! After a nifty 116.35$ CAN paypal transfer, the book is on its way.

Thanks for the feed.

Great book. I recommend it. The price guide is out dated though.

Ya I got this one when it was out at the normal price, glad I did, I saw the pocket version several times but never picked it up as I had the full one already.
