Transformers Car Robots: Board Book

I thought for today's post we would look at something a little different, a book. I have several nice Transformers and other 80's property books in my small collection, but I seldom think about sharing them. The other day while moving a book shelf in my hobby room my 5 year old daughter was helping me remove the books from the shelves. This particular book I think caught her eye because it is a board book, similar to some of the books she has. This Japanese book features the Car Robots series. Being that the book is all in the Japanese language I have no idea of what the actual title is or what is written on each page. Thankfully most of the images are of the actual toys, or the CGI art used on the toy packaging. In true Japanese fashion, the book reads right to left.

For many years I was really fond of the Car Robots series and I imported nearly the entire line of toys. Over the years the only thing I take from the series is the introduction of the Spychangers - some of my favorite TFs to date. This is a fun little keepsake that is worth keeping around, but that's about it.
