    So yeah today i wanted to visit a local comic book store and they have the old G1 Marvel comics as individuals but their all mixed up US and UK together and they dont have the whole series, but what they do have is G1 comics payerback issue 57 to issue 61 in a whole book, the title is Sentinel somthing, is it the real comic stories in it? or they just cut a few story scenes to make it fit in the book? And how many books like that are they?

    Thanks

    Do you know the publisher? There have been many collections of original TF books over the years. I have almost the whole run in the Titan reprints of the US series and 9 volumes from the UK one. I really need to find what books I'm missing and scour the globe for them.

    Depends on which movie you are on about, '86 or 2007? If it's for the '86 movie click on the link that Deceptijohn has provided, and you will find your answer there.

    Or if it's for the 2007 movie - Movie Adaptation - Transformers Wiki

    86. also Will they show at some point in the comics Ironhide, Prime and co dead?

    I called a Comic book store and the guy goes to me that their isnt any prints being made and that IDW dont have any of them left, is it true?

    And as for the link that Deceptijohn gave me i saw it looked over it and couldnt find the trade paperbacks of the original comics

    Ah, forgot all about IDW's take on the '86 movie, considering it was published back in 2007 and IDW don't have a large print run of their trades, chances are your comic book guy was telling the truth.

    As for the Marvel version, doesn't look like they did collect it in the U.S. (unless someone can correct me), however Marvel U.K. published a Winter Special with all three issues - TFArchive - Transformers Comics - Marvel Comics Guide But personally, I wouldn't bother with it, poor to say the least.

    Space Pirates is UK, Spotlight v3 is IDW but the others are all Marvel US. The complete list of Titan Marvel US and UK TPBs, AFAIK:

    Marvel US, in chronological order:

    Beginnings
    New Order
    Cybertron Redux
    Showdown
    Treason
    Breakdown
    Trial By Fire (IIRC, this volume collects the Headmasters mini-series as well)
    Maximum Force
    Dark Star
    Last Stand
    Primal Scream
    Matrix Quest
    All Fall Down
    End of the Road
    Dark Designs (G2)
    Rage in Heaven (G2)

    Marvel UK, roughly chronological order. Target 2006, Fallen Angel, Legacy of Unicron, Space Pirates and Time Wars were released first and follow the Galvatron arc, in chronological order. The others were released later and filled in a few bits and pieces before and during the Galvatron arc:

    Dinobot Hunt
    Second Generation
    Target 2006
    Prey
    Fallen Angel
    Legacy of Unicron
    City of Fear
    Space Pirates
    Time Wars
    Earthforce (manga-style B+W)
    Way of the Warrior (manga-style B+W)
    Perchance to Dream (manga-style B+W)
    Fallen Star (manga-style B+W)
    Aspects of Evil (manga-style B+W)

    If you get all the IDW TPBs at cover price you will pay roughly $120 for the set. The TF:TM 3-part comic is in volume 6 of the IDW set(along with the Headmasters 4-parter).


    I'm gonna put this link here again to encourage you to visit it. You seem to keep asking questions this site could answer.

    Shockwave = Hardcover
    Optimus Prime = Paperback

    Same story, just different covers.
