    Okay, so, first off, thank you so much for compiling all that information into one place. I actually managed to read through all of it and I found it very informative. It's a really impressive feat. I would not have been able to follow some of the story here without your notes and reference guides.

    Now, onto the bad news. I think I found a error.

    In Part 7, Page 348: Mermista's bio appears to be Gwildor's bio.

    That's the biggest error I noticed. I think there might have been...maybe 3 or 4 other errors, but they were just spelling mistakes or editing things that didn't really detract from the experience. I think the Mermista bio is the biggest thing. And considering this is 855 pages...that's actually really impressive. You still did a really good job editing this.

    Also, would this be a good place to discuss the Classics story or not? Not sure if I should just make a new thread or not. I have...comments and questions regarding a few things.

    Thank you for catching that! That's a really strange error, and in fact when I went into the file to correct it, I generated a new pdf of that page and guess what -- the pdf still showed Gwildor's bio even though I'd replaced it with Memista's. I had to shut down InDesign and try again in order for it to export the proper pdf. So there's some sort of glitch to blame.

    One of the other orgers read through my guide awhile ago and did a really thorough job of sending corrections to me. I know it's still not perfect, but I'm just one guy and this book is massive. Thank you for the kind words concerning the guide; I'm really glad you've enjoyed it.

    If I were you, I'd take such a discussion to the Classics forum, where it will get a lot more eyes and traffic. Back when I first started writing and designing this guide, I had wanted this thread to appear on the main Classics forum because I wanted as many fans as possible to see it and offer their input and opinions as I worked on it. Alas, the mods decided my work fell on the side of Fan-Art/Fan-Media and relocated it here, where I personally feel it didn't get the attention and traffic it should have gotten over the years. Yes, I guess I'm still a bit bitter about that. But I'm thankful for the select few who managed to find my thread buried in this forum.

    Huh. That does sound like a strange error. Not sure what even causes something like that. Then again, sometimes PDFs can be kind of temperamental. You sure did fix it fast, though!

    And...I might make that thread. Why not.

    Again, thanks for your work!

    Oh man, make sure the hard cover prints don't have the error too

    Umm, I want to buy them both...

Anyway... once I have my copies and everything looks good, I'll let people know where they can get a copy themselves if they want one.
    YES!! I must have this. I started printing out the pages but it's just not the same as having a quality hardcover version.

    Wakko you have got the classics done up waaay better than the “official” toy book did.

    I bought the preorder at PowerCon and was not let down when it came in this week.

    Yours has way more detail on each released figure.

    I def want a copy of yours when it is ready!!

    I'm not sure I'm going to continue with that project. I didn't buy glow-in-the-dark Mumm-Ra, and I also didn't pre-order the Thundertank, so I don't/won't have those items in-hand for taking pictures. So I'd need to ask for volunteers to provide pictures for me. Finding people willing to take good quality pictures for me for the MOTUC guide proved increasingly difficult as time went on, and I don't really want to have to go down that road again of pleading with people to provide pictures for me.

    We'll see. Maybe as more figures are released I'll feel more motivated to work on it again.

    I hope you do. Because that MOTUC guide you made is my go to reference when I want to check something out.
