VINE VOICEon 2 January 2005
As with 'More than Meets the Eye Volume 1', book 2 publishes the final half of Dreamwave's 'Who's Who' series, looking into the personalities, abilities and weaknesses of every single one of the Generation One characters. Volume 1 covered the Transformers from the Aerialbots through to the Pretender Monsters, this book covers from The Protectobots to Wreck Gar, looks at later versions of some robots (the Classic Pretenders, Powermaster Optimus Prime, the Targetmaster incarnations of the Movie characters) and also delves into Transformers technology, history and their homeworld in the final sections. In fact, because of this, Volume 2 edges ahead of Volume 1 in the 'must buy' stakes.
The slight flaws seen in Volume 1 remain - the index listing all the Transformers from both volumes, and some Transformers being placed in the alphabetical listing of their group name while others (chiefly the Micromasters) are separated out across both volumes. Example - apart from Grimlock, all of the Dinobots (Swoop, Snarl, Slag and Sludge) should have featured here rather than in Volume 1.
Still, buy both volumes and such flaws are completely irrelevant - and for avid Transformers fans, these books - along with Simon Furman's 'Ultimate Guide', and the forthcoming live-action movie - are pretty much what we've been awaiting for twenty years.
