    It's all a bit random, isn't it?

    I shall be so glad when everyone has the corrected sixteen and seventeen in their hands and things can go back to normal. Or whatever it was before error issues.

    Actually, has anyone gone back through all the issues released so far to make sure there aren't more errors we've missed spotting?

    I'm missing issues 17 and 18, absolutely no replies to my emails from their "customer service" team. Has there been any official communication regarding those issues being delayed?

    I've received 19 and 20 early for some reason.

    leave a message on their FB page - seems to be the best way to get anything done with them. gave up on the "customer service" team ages ago and haven't regretted it yet...

    Good times!
    My corrected issue sixteen replacement arrived today. Still got to go through it page-by-page to make sure it's right, but at least that's one less thing to worry about. Roll on replacement issue seventeen!

    I've checked all my copies. I've got my correct #16 but need reply re the wrong #17 sent. But there is an error in some #20 on 2 pages but other who have it don't have the printing error. I've not got a copy

    if anyone's in need of a spare (corrected) Primacy, I've got a spare - for some insane reason, Hachette sent me three copies... so after taking one for me, and one for a mate, I've got one spare...

    Mine turned up today. Nice touch reprinting the "Peace" story from the 89 annual after the Regen 2 story.
    Hope a lot of the annual stuff makes it out in these.

    Stories like "Victory!" from the '87 annual really need to be reprinted.

    What?!
    I'm a bit miffed to learn they're sticking some recoloured UK strips in with the IDW stuff I ain't bothering with, rassum frassum!

    Aye, the placing is a bit weird but i'm glad they're reprinting them.
    I'd almost prefer a dedicated issue or two for Annual/Special stuff but i'm happy enough that it's getting a reprint.

    Just skimmed the issue briefly but there's a page referencing other future stories/continuations of the original comic. Mentions stuff like "Another Time & Place" and reprints "Peace".

    It is a bit of a bollocks though as it forces folks, like yourself, to buy issues that they don't really want.

    weirdly, I go by Wikipedia - seems to be fairly up to date and hasn't put a foot wrong yet..

    and yeah, max Dinos has spotlight Wheelie and Grimlock added on. quite liking the spotlights being interwoven, even if placement is a bit odd

    Fortunately I am too bull-headed for them to get me to do that, I guess I'll just have to skip the "Dark Future" stuff!

    I've been using this listing at the top of this Transmasters UK thread but on close inspection now it looks a bit like it may have ground to a halt!

    I mentioned earlier that the placing was frustrating in volume 19, with all the gorgeous recoloured UK work appearing way after it should in the UK timeline, but now I'm thinking the weird ordering is even more widespread:

    Cold Comfort and Joy, set before Time Wars and the Underbase saga, was in Volume 16, despite the fact those two epics will likely feature in volume 15
    Wikipedia is saying Volume 14 (Space Pirates) is going to have The Man in the Machine, which should come after the Underbase saga (again likely 15)
    And Peace is bundled into a ReGen volume, which makes no sense as ReGen ignores Marvel UK and it's future timelines...

    My OCD is making me want to cut out and rearrange the pages!

    Urgh. Yet another error issue? :redface2: 
    Has this been flagged up on their Facebook page at all? I just had a quick look and couldn't see anything.
    Weird that some would have the error and others not. Since it's been caught early enough I wonder if that would affect the retail release (since I don't subscribe)? Would things be delayed while corrected versions are printed for retail? I really don't feel like buying yet another error copy and then waiting a couple of months for Hatchette to send me a corrected version.
