    They seem really good, too bad I don't have the money for one.

    God damnit. I'm such a packrat, even for a series I think has been more than half utter trash. I can't afford it either.

    Easy pass for me, but they do need to make the cover art for the collection books into a print/poster.

    I like IDW & I collect the Hardcovers, but I'm really not understanding what market these cater to.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA

    Oh good Lord.

    Who exactly can afford these?! This is INSANE. Even if I DID have the money- and I don't- there's no way I could justify this.

    I needed the laugh though.

    I love my Transformers comics, especially the IDW collection. But $125 to $400 for a book that isn't 100 years old, is bonkers. That is not to say that I don't love and appreciate the work of these fine artists and writers.

    Normally I'm all over super limited edition stuff like this, especially when it's in such cool packaging as showcased here. The problem I have with it, though, isn't the price - it's my complete lack of interest in having a collection of IDW art where only 20% of it at best is actually any good.

    Are there comics reprinted in here also? None of the info mentions that, even the IDW page...

    Those prices are crazy. That would $40,000 if they sell out. Good luck
