    Ouuuuuu! 39-50. Niceee! The Headmasters come to earth and hook up with the G1 bots. Op comes back as well as the underbase saga. I'll probably pass on the vol after this tho' as the book fell off in a major way until Furman/Wildman got on the book. Whichever vol that is, that's the one I'll renew picking up.

    Furman started with issue 56, which means you won't get to skip any volumes.

    ahh, so now they can reprint the curcuit breaker issues and all the other marvel owned stuff? If so that sounds like a must buy for me.

    If I want vol. 1-2-3 of the new series, which titles should I look for? This is confusing.

    I just have the new version of the volumes 1 and 2. Their great, the remastering process is much less glossy and the colors are hued accurately. The bordering is also kind of classy.
    You can recognize the new versions by their mostly black covers. With a character like Megatron splashed on it. The old IDW versions have comic page panels epicly pasted around the cover. Which I appreciated at the time. Because you knew instantly you were buying the orginal comics. The worst to me is doing entirely new vibrant art for the covers that looks like something from the current ongoing transformers IDW covers.

    It may be a groovy tribute for the Artist. But I think it discourages sales of those trying to break into transformers shopping on amazon. When they can't find the classic comics easily among the modern comics.

    That said. I'm glad IDW has'nt gone down that particular route. But its still confusing enough just from the comic panel cover reprints still being widely available.

    I'm stoked on this. But still have to track down Volumes 2 and 3!

    I was hoping that Headmasters would be included in this volume between issues 37 and 38. I wonder if that one will ever get reprinted.

    Too bad this volume skips over the issues that actually introduce those characters, their origin and what they're all about.

    Nope.

    Why?

    No one knows.

    Two questions: If Issues [FONT="Square721 BT, Eras Medium ITC"]#39-50[/FONT] are being included, why does the article show a picture of issue [FONT="Square721 BT, Eras Medium ITC"]#38[/FONT]? ([FONT="Square721 BT, Times New Roman"]#38 would be a better starting point, IMLTHO.[/FONT])
    Do you mean to tell me that the Vol. 1 I almost considered buying would not have come with Issue #3 (
    the one where Gears and Spider-Man *cough*Venom*cough* take Frenzy, Rumble, Ravage and Soundwave out of action and completely webbed up Megatron!?
    ) and Issue #9 (
    which would explain the partnership between Blackrock and the Autobots, as well as introduce the Superman III-inspired (j/k) Circuit Breaker
    )? Unspeakable!

    I was going to provide someone new to Transformers with the Christmas gift of seeing Starscream in his correct colors in plane mode, but something worse in robot mode!

    What they said.

    :lol  @ Cal.
    Please don't wish upon us a Nel Yomtov-colored Classics Starscream (unless it's from after issue #47). We did get a Yomtov-colored Classics Jazz -- Pretender Classics, that is. :lol
