    Recieved replacement #16 primacy today, complete with a crunched corner, well done!
    Could someone please clarify as im not a subscriber and am confused by the numbering system, does #17 (windblade) also have errors that means it needs replacing? Issue #20 was not instock today and wont be til friday apparently.

    Yes you just need to wait for #17. They did send ones out but it was the error stock.

    Where are you buying your copies from? I picked up my issue twenty from the newsagent Wednesday. Anyway, I don't think there are magazine deliveries on a Friday. At least there never were when I ran a newsagents back in the early nineties.

    Have you notified Hatchette that you need a replacement issue seventeen too? Otherwise you won't get one since you say you're not a subscriber.

    Did anyone hear anything further about the mention of errors in issue twenty? I had a quick flick through mine and couldn't see any immediate problems. Also, somebody over on their Facebook page got a message from Hatchette that issue eighteen had errors too. Possibly they meant issue sixteen, but since we had two error issues back-to-back with sixteen and seventeen it's made me kinda paranoid.

    Some copies of #20 have an error but it looks like only the small first print run so they might have got them before sending out

    What is the nature of the error on issue 20?

    I just saw this on the Facebook page. It's the sixth print for the premium subscribers, by Andrew Griffith. Coming with issues 79/80, apparently!

    (Which will be about two years time, so there's a bit of a wait there...) FB_IMG_1506106969725.jpg

    Some copies (only one found so far) have text printing error but no one else has it so the whole stock should be ok until someone finds another copy with the error. It's only some text double printed out of line on 2 pages.

    Probably just a one-off slip when printing then.
    However, is there a photo of the errors and which page so we know where to check just in case?

    It's jumping from one era to another to keep people around to build up the image on the spines. Optimus Prime is almost complete thats the IDW start stuff

    I'm just lost now.
    Which ones so far have had errors? Issue and volume numbers please. After I've removed the cellophane wrapper with the sticker on I have no idea what issue each one was. Volume title too if you fancy. And what was the nature of the errors? Which ones have Hatchette acknowledged and are doing replacement printings of?

    When I started collecting this damn thing I really didn't think it would be so confusing. I wanted to buy comic strips, not homework.

    Issue 17, which was volume 64 - Windblade - apparently had an error which lead to both it and issue
    18, which was volume 19 - Perchance to Dream - being delayed, and issues 19 & 20 (maximum dinobots and regeneration V2) being sent out early in their place.

    I've not received the replacement issues 17 & 18 yet, but Hachets release schedule is beyond my teeny brain's understanding.

    If I see one of the first 4 issues sealed but without an issue number sticker, does this mean it was from the trial run? How can you identify trial run issues? Thanks
