    thanks for all the info ! I have the other stuff from Titan and then all of it again from IDW, the only stuff I do not have is the formerly B and W stuff ( despite Titan doing them in B and W before )

    So I dont think I want to buy it all a third time but I am totally in for those colored ones

    But right now you cant just buy those four, right ? or can you ?

    Also any chance of seeing an interior page of the newly colored stuff ? I looked all over the internet and couldn't find anything

    Best I could find was in this very forum:
    UK Transformers Graphic Novel Partwork from Hatchette

    This thread is in "News and Rumours" (why it hasn't been merged with the one in the Comics Forum, I'm not sure) - there are a couple of examples of the recoloured stuff here...

    thanks so much ! still cant believe I missed this. Always wanted to get those stories colored.

    Now I have to find a way to get those volumes. Only being in the UK kind of sucks but I cant believe IDW wont release these stateside eventually

    Recoloured 'Raiders of the Last Ark' you say? Dammit I suppose this means the only way to get it will be in the Hachette series, since it's already had its B&W appearance in Classics UK. Gah!

    Yes. That certainly does suck ass.

    I give up on that appearance, but hope IDW will [tastefully] color the remaining black and white strips...maybe by the original colorist(s) and/or in the original style...?

    So has there been any more new info on this? Now that I've given up on IDW's current universe, I'd like to be able to legally read through the Marvel stuff all the way.

    July 19th TRANSFORMERS CLASSICS UK TP VOL 06 (NOV160409)

    The only positive thing is that a lot of books were pushed ahead last month and the TFUK 6 was only pushed to July 19th. As opposed to TF US Classics Compendium (Dec 27th!!!! TRANSFORMERS CLASSICS COMPENDIUM TP VOL 01 (MAR160397) ) and GI Joe Complete Coll vol 9 (Aug 9th GI JOE COMPLETE COLL HC VOL 09 (MAR160405) )

    Alright, with the quality of the current comics and them continuing to pull this shit, I'm boycotting IDW until they put this fucking book out.

    Come on, IDW! At least release this thing digitally. This whole delay on a book that has probably been basically done for ages is getting ridiculous.

    ANOTHER six months. Jesus.

    When did the last one come out?

    If IDW isn't going to finish this set or the G.I.JOE Complete Collections, I won't feel sorry for them when they close up in 2019.

    To be honest though, I have a feeling these collections have been more a work of love than for the profit. I'm happy if we eventually get it and it's done well.

    Oh a delay, that's a surprise :rolleyes2  Same constant pushing back of release date happened with the previous book. Though to be fair I haven't yet had the "sorry but..." email from Amazon yet...
    The general assumption seems to be that newly coloured late-era UK stuff will be shared between IDW and Hachette. We've already had some B&W's show up in colour in the Hachette series, so I would hope those versions will be reused when Classics UK gets round to them. They have tried to match the original colour style (with varying success!).

    Yes these things certainty feel like more effort went into them the the Hachette volumes.
