Update today is the Kickstarter got 100% funding.

I'm hoping they follow up with Beast era and Unicron Trilogy books, the absences from my collection books!

No idea re publishing, I just assumed they had one lined up with that cost.

The Bellomo book was a great visual reference when I first started collecting, but cant say I have opened it in the last 3 or so years

I asked on facebook if they realised some/most of the 'European Exclusives" were also released in Australia/New Zealand and got no response. Errors in reference books really stick in my mind, Bellomo got a couple of accessories mixed up in his 1st edition photos. Also its not clear if every transformer is featured in Vol 2. I'll be really impressed if they have photgraphed all Jr line.

Its good they got the funding, $50K thats a lot of dosh!

I still haven't looked

I'm glad they met their goal I know several people who are keen for the books. It's interesting, I've dropped more than a few hundred dollars on 3rd party toys and books but this one just didn't quite make my radar.

Looks like it's been canned

[ATTENTION]
Due to circumstances out of our control, the Kickstarter campaign for “Transformers G1 Unofficial Photographic Archive [ Volume 1 & 2 ]” will be prematurely aborted around 11:59pm PST tonight (10/14/2017).

All pledges will automatically cancel upon termination, and you will not be charged anything. We are deeply sorry, but we truly have no choice.

However, Ocular Echo has reason to hope that there might be an official door opening… but only time will tell as to how discussions pan out. We want to extend our warmest gratitude and appreciation to everyone that got behind this labor of love. We bow to you.

We will share any further information we can on the Ocular Echo page.
Wish us luck.
SAD I guess there was always a chance this would happen though

This is very disappointing.

It does sound like Hasbro put their foot down... but meanwhile they do nothing about the scores of third party IP infringing toys?
