    interesting I didn't know their was a comic outside of the mini-comics sold with the toys. looking at the cover I cant say I'm liking the child but hell he looks way cooler then kicker or that generic kid from armada. Also wow they turned the cute on BB up to 11

    Now we will see some sort of incentive toy? I hope so

    490 yen, that's around $5 dollars isn't it? Surprisingly cheap for a compilation of material.

    Not complaining though.

    Wasn't too fond of the comics that came packed with the Henkei figures...dare I say it? They sucked a bit.

    So no thanks. But good for the people that liked them, I suppose!

    I wonder if IDW will release an english version? I doubt it, but it would be cool to have one of the TF manga in the US.

    By the way not to be rude, but in Japan TPB of manga are refered to as tankĊbon. Just pointin' it out, I read a lot of manga.

    An IDW-English version would be nice, but I'll probably buy the original anyway. I know enough Japanese to get through comics aimed at kids, but I'm sure most TF fans would like an English version.

    The stories are so similar, practically interchangeable, (established characters fight new bad guy, new good guy comes and beats him. Yay) I didn't think this would even work.

    I thought these were different from the ones packaged with the figures, at least that's the impression I've gotten from the description (if they are how come we didn't hear of them before now?)

    Ah, I see. Thanks, I probably would've missed that. I thought these were the pack-in comics. I just read the TPB would consist of the Henkei comics, I forgot there are two.

    Pretty cool! I'd get it if I can find it in shops. But I would LOVE an american comic series. That lithograph that popped up online the other day was above and beyond WIN. It even had UM in his City Commander Armor!
