    Out of print. So was the first volume.

    What would be the point of printing the first three issues out of six for v3 on their own?

    QFT. I'm really only interested in the Megatron Origin comic. I am really happy with how badass Megatron has been in the IDW universe. Seeing pre-war Cybertron always kicks ass.

    Is the Don book made up of old stuff from released comics, or is there original artwork involved?

    Huh, anyone else noticing what appears to be some "Don upgrades" of these characters? Galvatron, for once, looks cool and like he could actually transform into what he's supposed to. And Cyclonus is looking seriously badass. Scourge looks exactly like his recent Titanium design... which makes me wonder if these could be roundabout hints that we may still see some Classic/Titanium releases of these guys one day down the road.

    I have a feeling that the Megs Origin book will be movie related.

    And did anyone else notice Galvatron's fusion canon?
    Looks kinda far up his arm

    Man oh man, the DON artbook will cost me, but will most likely be worth it. And the Megatron Origins book interest me because I welcome another writer besides Furman (who I believe is doing an excellent job, but I would love to see other writers' take on the TF mythos).:)

    If the animation model book was in color it would be a very interesting piece. The listing says it's black & white, however. Kinda pricy, but I'm interested in sample pages.

    And as far as the DON book, hmmm. I think I already have everything he's done for IDW and DW. Need to see sample pages there too. If anyone deserves this kind of collection, it's him!
