    So Amazon has sent me an email every week for the last three weeks telling me each time that volume two is gonna be a week later. So now they're saying it will be March 30, 2012 - April 03, 2012. I wonder what is going on. Does anyone have this on order from somewhere besides Amazon that can confirm the release date?

    Yeah this is getting ridiculous. I am so curious to know what the hold up is. I wonder if this will push back the release of Vol.3 as well?

    This sucks. Why can't IDW managed their reprint program so we don't have to wait for months to pass by.

    The first volume was clearly created by an enthusiastic fan, who gathered and chronicled ALOT of rare material. That seems time-consuming, and I wouldn't want to rush that process. I've been waiting YEARS for this, so a few more months won't kill me :)

    If volume 2 is put together as well as volume 1, then I can wait -

    I can wait and I will wait, but that doesn't mean I have to like waiting. :D

    If they're all as good as the first, I'll wait as long as it takes.

    I've got all the IDW best of UK trades and the Titan second generation trade. Are there any stories in this volume I haven't read before?

    Here's everything in it according to TFWiki:

    A Complete History of Transformers UK, Part 2: Second Generation
    "The Icarus Theory"
    "Dinobot Hunt!"
    "Victory!"
    Optimus Prime fact file from 1987 Annual
    The Special Teams Have Arrived
    "Robot Buster!"
    "Devastation Derby!"
    "Robot War III"
    "Second Generation!"
    Megatron fact file from 1987 Annual
    "And Now... The Dinobots" fact file from issue #74
    "In the National Interest"
    "In the Beginning..."
    "To a Power Unknown!"
    "The Return of the Transformers"
    "The Mission"
    "State Games"
    Adverts and Ephemera

    Even if you had all the issues(which I don't think is possible unless you have a complete vintage collection), the background information alone is worth a purchase imo.

    I do have a complete vintage collection, but am still collecting these. This list is exactly what I predicted this volume would contain, leaving v3 clear to kick off with T: 2006.

    Awesome stuff.

    I was charged for my UK Volume 2 today, should ship out soon.

    I'm really excited I decided to purchase these. The Marvel run, both US and UK, is so fun to read and gives me a great sense of history.

    Maybe the delay had something to do with printing the story pages at a more reasonable size.

    But prolly not. :)
