    I wonder if those MTMTE & RID annual-thingies will be included in the MTMTE & RID paperbacks.

    After getting addicted with the first issue of each series digitally, I'm torturing myself in only getting the trades for the new books.

    ReGeneration One I'll go digital and trades for each issue.

    I hope when Blaster appears, he'll look like he did originally (NOT the toon Blaster head).

    I'd love a profile book that has EVERY character in the G1 conitnuity... G1 US/EU/JPN, G2, Ehobby, Botcon, and original characters.. We have yet to get a complete profile book..

    Does anybody know if Autocracy is connected with any of the other comic's or continuities?
    It just seems off from other things, granted I have only read LSOTW and AHM so far

    Super happy that the Dinobots are coming back in the 2 new ongoings. Grimlock in MTMTE should be an interesting player on that ship.

    Can't wait for Sky-Byte and the Dinobots.

    Also, dig how they're waiting until they have stable sales of the current comics before doing fan-wants. But saying that the fan-wants are int he pipeline.

    YAY BOB!! I want more Bob and Sunstreaker. We've seen a lot of Sideswipe on the other end. I need to know what Sunstreaker is up to.

    Glad to hear Grimlock will be coming in MTMTE! I'm sure Roberts will be doing a terrific job on him! I like that they're putting together a bunch of the original post-movie crew - gonna be interesting to see the dynamic between a brash, probably insane Grimlock with the Lost Light.

    "Animated (big cheer)". They knew there is a high demand and prefer to not release it. Great choice!
    Here I have the two Allspark Almanacs, Bots Of Science, The Arrival (dead trees and digital) and the Animated "photo"-comics. Any doubt I will buy anything Animated released by IDW? And probably there is a lot of other people waiting for "Season 4" or continuing the story for Season 3.5...

    And I am still waiting "Marvel G1" after #16 to be released in digital form (then I can buy it in ComiXology). Would be very better to read number 81 having the opportunity to read the other 80 before it!

    Argh.

    They already have two ongoings and Autocracy, plus RG1 is coming up. Oversaturating the market with another TF title could end up being very bad. I'd prefer waiting until after RG1 is finished before a TF Animated ongoing starts.

    It is in the same continuity as LSOTW and AHM yes (and the current RID and MTMTE and the stuff Furman started with Infiltration etc).
    It is set in the distant past of Cybertron though.

    That's good, now just wondering if it ties in with WFC & FOC or just similar.
    I wonder what started the trend of replacing Sentinel with Zeta or making them the same with a different name?

    No those comics do not relate to WFC/FOC.

    IDW can do limited mini-series instead ongoing, like they did with Prime prequel comics or The Arrival. Actually they have two G1 ongoings, and G1 Autocracy and G1 Regeneration. In my opinion those comics competes with each other. Movieverse, Prime, Animated or even Classics reissues aren't a direct fight to G1 comics.

    As I said before, I have all Animated released stuff. Have LSTOW, Prime and Classics. Have interest to buy RG1... but what I read about ongoing didn't makes me buy it, even as a test.

    At least IDW feeds our hope to see Animated Comics sometime in the future.
