Since we are so close to the world premiere of Transformers: Prime, I'd say that this would be a good opportunity to be caught up on many of the recent developments in the Transformers franchise. And a good way to do so has shown up at TFW2005. User s250 has put up several image scans of the new Transformers Generations 2010 book.
But first, a little history. To clarify, this is not in reference to the Generations toyline that is currently in stores. Back in 2001, a massive infobook titled Transformers Generations was released in Japan, which contained an enormous abundance of information on G1, G2, and Machine Wars. In 2004, a Deluxe edition of this book was released, containing an additional 18-page gallery of concept sketches and unused ideas in the Transformers toyline. In 2009, a new infobook called Transformers Generations 2009 was released in three full volumes, covering many more lines like Alternity, ROTF, Henkei! Henkei!, Music Label, Device Label, and Disney Label. And now, the latest installment in this series of wealthy infobooks is Transformers Generations 2010.
The images s250 has scanned showcase the two latest Masterpiece figures (MP-9 Rodimus Convoy and MPM-2 Bumblebee), the Japanese Animated line, and the United line.
But of further mention are the images that show the earliest prototypes and concept designs for the Transformers: Heroes line, which evolved into Transformers Animated. The prototypes are of Optimus, Hot Shot, and Rhinox, and the sketches show even more scrapped Heroes character designs.
