I was so excited when I found this book. It has some interesting specs about the Transformers characters (all of which are in point form). The pictures are full color and show excellent detail. It even covers the sidekicks, like Frenzy.

On the downside, it does omit some key characters. I was heartily disappointed to find Iron Hide was omitted. The "interesting facts" that are written here-and-there about the characters, are no more in depth than what you would find on the toys.

I truly hope that there is a better book out there about the Art of the Transformers Movie. In the past, there have always been books on the subject. Even Winnie the Pooh has several books. I do like this book, but can't help being disappointed as well. I want something that took the movie 'seriously'.

Not terrible, but this book completely omits Bonecrusher, Brawl/Devastator, Ironhide and Starscream, not to mention the humans, Sector 7, and so on. Disappointing.

Less Than Less Than Meets the Eye July 12 2007
By Gregory Fam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have to say that I was very excited to see this book on the shelves. I grabbed it, bought it, and ripped open the wrapping to feel like i'd been conned.

1. The back cover promises in depth coverage. There is simply too little information on any of the individual robots in the movie. Not worthy of DK! (Think the visual dictionaries for the Star Wars saga)

2. Not ALL the transformers are in the book! My favourite Decepticon Bonecrusher was not in there! My favourite Autobot Ironhide was not in there! Starscream wasn't in there, for crying out loud!

3. I have the sense that this book was prepared way ahead of the movie, and that the people writing it weren't privy to information in order to prevent leaks of the movie and steal its thunder. Still for DK it's unforgiveable.

I'd have put it at one star. Still the visuals included are nicely done, although I would have preferred photorealistic art like DK is famous for. And I had to discount one star for my own stupidity: not opening the wrapping before buying :-)

Less than meets the eye July 12 2007
By Chris Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I cannot, in good conscience recommend this book.
It has outdated mid-production photos and worst of all is missing info on some of the robots.
Here are the ones NOT INCLUDED in the book: Starscream, Brawl/Devastator, Bonecrusher and Ironhide.
Why they did not include Ironhide is beyond me!
One thing you can tell after the most cursory of glances is that this book was written a very long time ago...many months before the movie release...but I suppose that couldn't be helped.
Transformers: The Movie Guide Jan. 30 2014
By Awesomeness - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book itself is alright with good information on the transformers that are in it (height, weight in metric tons, information about armor, weapons, and parts, direct quotes from the movie made by the characters, etc). However, many transformers are excluded such as Starscream, Ironhide, and a few other Decepticons. Mind you, this book was written after the first movie came out and therefore doesn't have Sideswipe, Dino, Brains, Wheelie, the Twins, Devastator, The Fallen, Shockwave, or any of your other favorite characters that are in Revenge of the Fallen or Dark of the Moon (or in the newest movie "Age of Extinction" that we're all excited for).

If I were you, I'd buy "Transformers Revenge of the Fallen: The Movie Universe" by the same author instead of this.

Also, the person I bought this book from said that it was in very good condition. Apparently some people have different opinions on what "very good" means. When I got my book, there were library stickers all over it, all of the corners were badly damaged, the pages are ripped and crinkled and some even have food on them. The book sleeve is absent, and the front has scratches. It looks like it's been in a little kid's backpack for a few weeks. Just sayin' if you are going to buy this book, get a NEW one.
Definately lacking Nov. 22 2009
By A buyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I saw the reviews but thought what the heck after all I didn't spend a lot of money on it. It was nice reading about the character modes strengths' weakness's ect. However its definitely missing some characters. No Ironhide seriously.....that's just wrong. Not to mention SS being missing. Also wish it developed more on the bots personalities since it was not present (IMHO) in the first film. It seems like they just threw stuff together. Nice to have just to say "I have it," for a hard core fan but for those hoping to learn more...skip it. Or get it on sale for cheap.
Transformer book for all ages July 28 2008
By Charles J. Homolka Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Transformer the movie guide is a must have for all Transformer movie fans. What this book has that many other lack is clear photography/pictures of you favorite movie characters. Being a model builder and wanting to build a accurate replica of a transformers I found very little reference out there besides this book to help me. There is a good amount of writen information to go with each picture allowing one to find out much about there favorite character.
