    IDW comics=canon for me. I know that quite a bit of the Titan stuff took place in some alternate reality where the 'cons won Mission City anyway. So they're canon, just in their own separate universe (kinda like how Marvel US and Marvel UK are different universes).

    I always treat the comics/tie-in novels as canon so far as they do not conflict with what is seen on screen. Ala Barricade as portrayed in Ghosts of Yesterday is canon. His death in the IDW First Movie adaptation is not, as he doesn't die in the film. That sort of thing.

    Not canon to the movies but still part of the movie universe and their characters.

    I consider neither canon. If it wasn't in the movie, then it didn't happen.

    Well, the two movie adaptations fall within that canon. so :/ I'm going to consider them all the same. Besides I was only using that as an example.

    Both I consider canon. Wish we had got that kind of writing for the movies.

    I've only read IDW comics so I consider them to be Canon for the most part. It makes me enjoy the Movieverse a lot more to be honest.

    This. That sort of writing just fleshes out characters so much more than the movies allow, and that, as simple as it seems, makes things so much better. After reading Reign of Starscream, we see the Starscream in TF2 in a different light. Why? Because he has some depth to him now, likewise with Arcee.

    I consider IDW canon. Or rather, since there are a few deviations between the movies and the comics, at least I consider similar events having taken place in between the movies, with a few edited details for consistency.

    Don't consider Titan canon because 1) I dont read them (dunno where to find them) 2) the whole point of them is to explore the idea if the bad guys won that particular movie, so a few events are mutually exclusive.

    Generally no. If there's heavy duty collaboration sure, but that's not the case here, not to any degree of significance to me. It's nice to have such stories, and yeah if taken a certain way it can enrich what we see onscreen, however at the same time its easily its own separate continuity(ies).

    I concur.

    Somehow, I don't think Michael Bay and the other people involved in plot and character selection would ever feel restrained from using a character a certain way, or at all, simply because it would contradict what the comics did.

    I do not read these comics. But generally I see comics as different universes as movies and never canon to the movies. Only canon to themselves.

    IDW comics are canon. The Titan ones are probably not canon, or at least canonical in their own sense, like how both the G1 comics and the cartoon had the 1986 movie happen in both continuities, but were still different.

    I voted yes, but because I consider them canon in their continuities, ie Titan and IDW are different continuities, but both can link to the movies
