    alright so are these just going to be infiltration, stormbinger, etc, or is this like another version of continum? I'm trying to follow-up i just purchased ongoing 1-5. Needing to know what other to purchase to get a little more caught up.

    So this will start with Megatron Origins, then all the spotlights and Stormbringer interwoven with all the "tion" series ending in All Hail Megatron? That's crazy.

    No need for me to get as I have all in trade but Escalation & AHM vol 1. But it's cool that they're putting this out. Hope the binding process is better than the trades - 3 of mine have pages falling out. Up the QC, IDW!

    Wow! As a vocal critic of both Su's artwork and IDW's oft-amateurish graphic design, I'm giving credit where it's due, these are incredibly nice.

    Humm interesting. I recently sold all my IDW Tranformers comics/trades because I found the whole time-line was getting too messy and difficult to follow that combined with the inconsistant quality of art, framing, graphics, lettering, and writing culimating in the horrible movie-esque art of the ongoing title by Don Figueroa of all people, I just felt it wasn't worth investing my time and money in following it.

    However having it all in order like this make sense to me, and I may actually consider picking these up.

    Ok, those are seriously sweet-ass covers! Don't know if I want them for the content, but this will definitely attract some people to buy them.

    I saw the listing of these in Borders this past weekend, and I was curious to see what they looked like. Nicely done.

    Will these actually collect the entire IDW run or start at one of their various resets? I still don't know if I can get back into the comics after the last go around I had with them, but big collections appeal to me on some level.

    Huh... 50 bucks apiece isn't bad. I may have to look into getting these as I've never really followed any of the comics. I've been wanting to start, and this seems as good a place as any.

    FYI, here is the contents (a little slimmer than i had originally suspected, but that's IDW for you)
    basically 3 trades worth, i thought this'd be more Omnibus-like.

    Cool, I'll definitely pick these up, since I really need to get caught up on all of IDW's comics.

    I don't think he said the Premieres were canceled, just that this is a less costly alternative to them

    Of course I'll probably buy these because real nerds need three versions of the exact same thing.
