    So far, there have been the 6 IDW Complete Volumes (including the one coming out in the near future) and alot of the stories have been covered-but, of course, there are some that haven't. So I got to wondering-What has come out that so far hasnt been included? I know there's

    The Transformers Issues 7-31
    Heart of Darkness
    Transformers: Ironhide

    What else? Dunno if I wanna wait for the info on the Vol 7 lol

    Besides the current RID and MTMTE, I think The Death of Optimus Prime is the only other thing that can be included right now.

    Not really part of the continuity but HoS was left out. They still put in those god awful marvel cross overs in 2 or 3.

    Hearts of Steel technically is set outside of the ongoing IDW continuity, its own self-contained story that is revisited during the second Infestation "crossover."

    As for Infestation, it's a crossover/not-crossover...basically a bunch of zombies manage to cross into the universes of some of the featured IDW properties (Transformers, Star Trek, Ghostbusters, I forget the rest). There is no interaction between the different titles themselves (more or less), just, for this thread, the Transformers interacting with zombies and zombi-fied Cybertronians.

    There was a Transformers: Infestation #1 & 2 and two separate Infestation books (someone correct me if I'm wrong). Nick Roche handled the art for the two Transformers Infestation issues...Optimus had even more exaggerated bunny ears and that's where IDW left off with Kup. It was kind of random, but like that New Avengers stuff, technically considered in-continuity for G1 IDW.

    90% of the covers (from the floppies) are missing which doesn't stop me from buying them, but just irks me why they can't include all the covers like all the other publishers.....

    I don't think the Ironhide miniseries is in any of them yet.

    the covers are in the TPBs, but not the Omnibuses. This is probably to encourage people to buy both, but considering that they don't keep things in print for very long, it doesn't work that well
