    while movie novelizations usually suck...Peter David is awesome!

    Huge fan of Peter David going all the way back to his works on the Incredible Hulk, X-Factor comics, & Star Trek novels. I'm going to have to pick up his adaptation of TF3.

    I've read some of Peter David's other novelizations - they're usually decent. Better than Alan Dean Foster at the very least.

    But yeah - David has a large body of well-regarded work in both the comic book AND prose realm. I have high hopes.

    Wow, I didn't know that there were so many Peter David fans in the Transformers community. You can add me to the list. If he wrote it I'll read it. Here's hoping that Hasbro notices this and hires him to write some original Transformers stories.

    Wow! Just now noticed this thread because I've been buried in reading the trailer discussions. All I can say is THANK! GOD! Though I don't like to talk badly about anybody that contributes to the world of Transformers, Alan Dean Foster is the LAST writer I would have picked for the novelizations. I appreciate his contribution, but not sad to see David step in. Been a big fan ever since his work on Hulk and X-factor in the 90's. Can't wait!

    I Kind of curious to read the novelization now. The other two were ok, but they were more straight play by plays of the movie. Wasted opportunity if you ask me. Movie novels have a great chance to expand the universe a bit more. Nothing against Alan Dean foster, I've read plenty of his stuff in my day, but the movie novels seemed to be missing something. Especially Rotf one. It didn't capture any sense of excitment for me. The prequel novels were slightly better, but I'm pretty hopefull for this one now.
