    Oooo. Sounds like Rodimus is going to Cybertron to meet up with Ironhide and Sunstreaker.

    Wonder who his companions are though. Would love for them to be Guzzle and Impactor, honestly, given they went off on their own in their own ship.

    I wouldn't because then it would mean they'd be in the hands of Costa.

    Do I spy Wheelie?

    That's him alright.

    Also...it looks as though Scourge is having a very bad day.

    I'm still wondering if "The Complete AHM" sort of becomes "The IDW Collection Vol. 5" or if they will include the contents of it in The IDW Collection V.5 and 6, or if The IDW Collection is done after v.4, or what... :crazy:

    The cover for HOD #4 looks intriguing. Is that Hardhead next to Jhiaxus? Also who's that behind Arcee? I can't wait to read HOD and see where it takes the ongoing.

    So, I'd assume, based on the cover, that Rodimus's companions will be Wheelie and Varta (Wheelie's alien buddy from his spotlight). Sweet!

    Looks like Arcee is going all "ROTF Wheelie" on Galvatron

    Wait, is there a typo here, or is The Complete All Hail Megatron actually $75.00? That seems kinda nuts.

    It's hardly nuts, it's four $20 paperbacks' worth of material in a hardcover format.

    Hopefully AHM is a continuation of the oversized HCs IDW have been doing

    I'm desperate to know if the new Classics Vol 1 now restores issues #3 and #9 which were omitted from the previous release.

    Ongoing looks like it's getting better and better all the time!

    At a guess, I'd say it is Vol. 5. The intro in the first volume said that they were planning to reprint the IDW Transformers stories in a "suggested reading order" up through All Hail Megatron.

    Although the cost of the thing and the page count listed along with the description saying it contains all 4 volumes of All Hail Megatron makes it partially redundant as all the Spotlights from the 3rd volume will have already been reprinted in IDW Collections 1 and 4.

    To me it comes across as a cheap ploy to get the people who've been collecting the IDW Collections to spend an extra $25 on the 5th volume for an extra 100 pages they already have. Hopefully it's a mistake and it'll just contain All Hail Megatron #1-16 and cost $50 same as the other IDW Collections, but I expect that's just wishful thinking on my part.

    Whatever. $75 was freaking nuts for this, considering the prices of the IDW Collections. The point of a "collected" version, usually, is to have a large body of work collected at a savings.

    The Amazon preorder price of $44.88, however, is much more reasonable for an omnibus. Sold.
