Philip Reed is a great guy and I’m glad to have backed his Kickstarter project for Transforming Collections – a reference book for third party Transformers, which was succesfully funded at the end of September. If you missed out on that campaign and are still interested in the book, Philip is now taking pre-orders. I think there will be just one printing of the book, so get your pre-order for Transforming Collections in now. It will close when the book is ready to go to print, sometime in the next couple of weeks.
Transforming Collections Pre-Orders Now Open
As Transforming Collections — my book designed as an introduction to third party Transformers toys and accessories — comes together it is time to start accepting pre-orders for the 48-page full-color hardcover. You can check the Kickstarter project page for more information on the book.
I’m pushing to send the book to print this month and then it’s five to six weeks for the proofing and printing process. Books might ship before the end of 2012, but all books pre-ordered here will ship after the Kickstarter supporters’ copies so it’s likely books will not ship until 2013.
A single copy is $24.95 + shipping and handling charges (international runs about $40 total with shipping). The plan is to use bubble envelopes to help protect the books in shipment. Pre-orders will remain open until the book is sent to print and then it will be too late to pre-order a copy. Pre-ordered books do not include the Kickstarter bonuses.
