I totally missed this campaign. It'd be nice if each figure had a section comparing the VTC version to previous releases (Vintage and Modern) like Scott's "Collect all 92" list. But overall the book still looks great. I am total sucker for the VTC style packaging art. Debating whether or not I want to drop $70 for it, but I'm leaning towards picking this up.

I don't know how many of you (if any) backed the kickstarter, I had missed out on that but luckily, Big Bad Toy Store purchased a bunch of these books and I preordered one there.  Mine was delivered on Sunday and I am amazed at how well this is done!

There's great information on all the TVC figures, and vehicles all the way up to 2019, with a little look into 2020.  I can already see another volume down the road to cover from 2020 on....and I will be there to get that one as well!

Still in stock at BBTS.

I am tempted, but $70?  Woof.  My problem with these guides is that they are almost immediately out of date because new stuff keeps hitting.  A book like this covering the original vintage line would be fantastic, but I kind of want to wait until they're done making TVC to buy a book that covers the TVC line.  Or if it was electronic and included updates, that's the route I'd go.  I'm sure it's an awesome book though - I've seen lots of praise for it elsewhere as well.

I got mine last week.  Iíve been able to read a few of the entries.  And the details about some of the development process are great - a true insiders angle on how these figures go from concept to release.
