    I will be getting a copy in couple months.

    Was it that I'll only need to contact you before-hand, to get a signed copy?



    (shame there are no pictures. they would have been great with the animation reuse-examples)

    I purchased one!

    Considering the Filmation rights, I just assumed there would be no pictures to speak of.

    The description sounds exciting, though. The Filmation show was my window into this line...

    It's an all-text book- no pictures
    But I'm sure it's going to be the must have bible for the MOTU cartoon! I can't wait to get mine!

    That's a good question. Could I get a signed copy when I order my copy?

    BustaToons Unofficial Cartoon Guide

    Greetings one and all.

    The other day I was browsing all of my He-Man links I have bookmarked and I was revisiting BustaToons site...

    http://bustatoons.blogspot.com/

    ...and I noticed that the picture on his guide book status has been changed from this [partial image link from the ORG here is all I could find of the SOLD OUT image]...

    ...to this...

    Can anyone comment and confirm [or not] on this actually coming out?

    The book did come out and the first printing sold out.

    James is doing a reprint, yes, so you'll be able to order a copy if you missed out.

    Just released 10/6/2013: EPISODE 55 of Masters Cast!

    Very happy to hear this is getting a reprint for those that missed out! It is a FANTASTIC book that should be in every MOTU fan's collection...

    Shameless plug- While we await the reprint, I am currently working towards a giveaway for a copy of the first edition over at my youtube channel. Once I hit 400 subscribers, I'm going to give one away! Here's the link to my channel-

    Unofficial Cartoon Guide...printing error!!!!

    I am not posting this to bash James Eatock; just to make him, and possibly others, aware. I just received my copy today and noticed pages 259-270 are inserted backwards and upside down! I know this is the fault of no one but the printer, but I would like to know if there is anything that can be done.

    Thus far I only know of two books with the error - Here's hoping no more show up!

    SuperMario, I sent you a PM on Monday - Please check it out so we can resolve the problem!
