    Your previous episode covered the vintage guide to transformers.I have that book as well and as much as i love it i have found one error in it and was wondering if you guys have discovered any other mistakes as well.Having just collected the vehicle pretenders i wanted to make sure they were complete.Decepticon Roagrabber is on page 225 and seems fine.Autobot Gunrunner is listed twice as on page 194 and also on 225.The inner bot vehicle mode is correct but bot mode is the Roadblock figure.I was wondering if you had found similar issues or wrong weapons assigned to combiner figures.
    Thanks for doing such a great podcast.

    1. Thank you for your comment and for your kind words about our podcast.

      To be honest with you, I don't think that either of us have really had an opportunity to look too closely at the book yet however we will definitely take a look at the errors that you referenced. I have the older guide, also by Mark Bellomo and am curious if the same error is in that one as well.

      Good question about the weapons for combiner figures. That would be another good subset to cross-reference against the old book. If we see anything major perhaps we will revisit it in an upcoming episode of the show. Thanks again.

      Cheers M

  2. Thanks for getting back.I never had the original book but i do have most of the unofficial transformer guide volumes and they have the combiner weapons errors such as giving the predacons the wrong swords,When the book was "reissued" as a pocket guide the issue wasn't fixed either as the original material was simply shrunk to fit pocket pages.Perhaps add other subsets in your search of the new book such as the omnibots.Since M owns two of them he'll know if the book got it right for weapons or screwed that up as well.
    Thanks again.

    1. Very good point. I do remember the Predacon swords being wrong in the original guide. I remember looking at listings on eBay and thinking that the seller had mixed up the accessories. I'll compare my Omnibots with both guides. I'm hoping that there aren't too many errors with the new guide. It kind of defeats the purpose if we have to second the guide all the time. Cheers M
