    I'll pre-order the Almanac on the spot.

    I also recommend "Prey!" to anyone new to Marvel UK. One of the best stories, plus a great OP vs. Megs showdown (with Predaking in the mix).

    the Complete Ark book is full of character models and stuff. it contains both volumes 1 and 2 and i think a couple new pieces of additional content as well

    great book!

    Welcome back, Barricade. Can't wait to hear Keith David's voice as I read it again. Haven't seen him since The Veiled Threat.

    I've been wondering when that Animated All Spark Almanac was going to come out.

    I look forward to picking that up.

    Hey guys, a little off-topic, but not really....

    I'm looking to get into some of the older TF comic series (i.e. the original Marvel and UK stuff). I want to pick up the IDW trade paperbacks/ reprints, but I dont know which order to buy them in.... can anyone help?

    What order do the trades go in?

    I wonder what Bumblebee transformers into... If Sam is grown up, then the Camaro must be out of style by then.

    Google is your friend... :) 

    IDW Best of UK

    Though, I recommend you first pick up the TITAN Marvel UK reprints. Here is a reading order to US/UK continuity (it is pretty consistent throught, only starts getting weird when Furman left to write the US stories too - the two continuities diverge at the B&W Earthforce stories. Of course some fans have theories that these fit into the timeline too somewhere... don't get me started on Rebis and his "3 Galvatrons" theory... :)  Yeah we UK fans can get scary...)

    TF US-UK reading order
