Transformers: The Ulitmate Pop-Up Universe released today!

Postby Sabrblade » Tue Oct 29, 2013 1:48 pm

At long last, the new Transformers: The Ultimate Pop-Up Universe book has been released to American mass retail on this very day. Written by Matthew Reinhart and illustrated by Emiliano Santalucia, this high-end collector-aimed book is chock full of all kinds stunning artwork taken straight from the Binder of Revelation, which all not only springs forward right off the page, but also fully TRANSFORMS from one mode to the other and back! Though it's only 10 pages long, this is a must have for any fan of the Aligned Continuity or of Transformers in general. Head to your local bookstore or a place like Amazon.com to get your own!

“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

Picked it up the day it came out. This. Thing. Is. GLORIOUS!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

The artwork of this book is amazing. It is so cool to see what the TF: Prime designers used as their inspiration for that show's designs.

For some, it seems like very little was really changed.

Bumblebee pretty much just has a different head in the show from what the Binder's art had.
Ratchet's chest was changed for the cartoon.
Optimus was given some noticeable tweaks to his design, but still maintains his overall basic look.
Ironhide's Prime toy just went for a straight representation of his Binder art.

Prowl, Shockwave, Omega Supreme, Ultra Magnus, the Dinobots, the Combaticons, and Soundwave all seem to use art based on their WFC/FOC bodies.

Though, the designs of Starscream, Megatron, Bulkhead, and Arcee are totally different, being either more G1 based than their Prime designs or simply being completely unique designs in their own right. Megatron, for example, is an Earth tank.

And there are a TON of cameos in this thing. Big Red, Scrounge, Greatshot, Bumper, Lugnut, it's just oozing with so much goodness!

Wonder if a giant Omega Supreme that surpasses even Masterpiece height would get more folks interested in this. ;)
