    Hmmm Dinobots versus Trypticon. The scaling is WAY off. I'm sure I bought this comic when it came out in the Marvel run, but I can't remeber much about it.

    The first couple of pages in the preview make me think of Lost Skeleton of Cadavera!

    Especially when the proffessor whips out the pipe. So 50's. :lol

    Is there going to be a covers gallery of the new cover art for this series? I'd love to have some of these. The last one, with Megatron being 5-teamed by the Predacons, was VERY nice. This is cool too, but I can't help thinking Grimlock and Trypticon are making out.

    I'm curious - does anyone here buy these regularly? I haven't really felt the need since they've been released; I've already read the old Marvel TF comics and, honestly, I'm a snob for the new IDW/DW style artwork.

    I don't mean to rain on anyone's parade here if you like them, I'm just curious.

    thats actually a pretty sweet issue, with an all out brawl between the dinos vs trypty.

    grimmy was so heroic...of course the following issues he reverted into an ass.

    I'm buying them because I'm completionist for all TF-related comics. Personally, I haven't cared for most of the new covers, and the old Marvel art hasn't held up well over the years in many cases.

    My comic shop guy says he only orders them for me. Just by nature of what they are, I can't imagine they're selling all that well. They also went from two regular covers to one for issues 7&8. Looks like this one will have two again.

    I bought all the Titan reprints but I don't buy comics that I already own. once i own them in TPB form I don't need to own them again. i've never bought any generations title yet. but i do like the covers - just not enough for me to buy it for them.

    do they plan on reprinting the whole series? Or is this going to stop like the TPB's?

    ive been passing, and i buy everything TF....my store is only ordering one right now, and i dont think weve sold a single issue...its just not worth it...trades are infinately better...IDW should just release 6 issue trades with new cover art in between the issues...and a new art for the trade cover as well...cuz i totally love the new art for them, but thats not worth it to buy the issue again....maybe ill change my mind when my discount is 35 percent...but even then, ill just buy them so my boss doesnt have to dollar bin all of them....

    i got the first couple soley because of the sweet-ass Ashley Wood covers, as soon as they raised the price AND dropped Ash, i dropped it ~ i've already bought these once and since they're bringing nothing new to the table, seems silly when the TPBs are still pretty easy and cheap to track down ~ if IDW "remastered" them with new colours or something, i'd totally get 'em, but as it is it just seems pointless.

    and these new "interior panel" covers just seem beyond goofy...
