    I think we're looking at 8-10 volumes of IDW reprints/recolors if they don't step up the page count.

    Here's the new series:

    vol 1. #1-#13 348 pp
    vol 2. #14-#24 276 pp

    Here's the original series:

    vol 1 - #1-#16 312pp (excluding two issues for copyright problems)
    vol 2 - #17-#32 340 pp (excluding another two)
    vol 3 - #33-#46 312 pp (excluding one issue)
    vol 4 - #47-#61 368 pp (no exclusions)
    vol 5 - #62-#74 284 pp (no exclusions)
    vol 6 - #75-80 + Headmasters + TFTM adpation 364 pp

    agreed... i knew what the story was from the other day, when the title was in spoiler tags, but i know others will see that and get bugged... and i don't even read previews anymore because they almost always spoil the story... the only one's that really don't are Invincible and The Walking Dead, because they leave it so ambiguous and instead of trying to build on hype, they build on good story telling...

    Wow. Nice artwork... but what the? A Crossover featuring TF, GI Joe, Star Trek, AND Ghostbusters? Insanity.

    Why can't anyone properly seat G1 Prime's rifle in his fist? It's a just the tip deal, I figured that out when I was ten.

    I'm most interested in the recolored Marvel comics. They haven't shown any pages from that yet.

    Not to start an arguement about people who are overly spoilerphobic, but how can the title of a comic, even THAT ONE, spoil their reading experience? I'd assume that before they read the comic they will see the title on the cover.

    Then again maybe I'm wrong. Does anyone here have their comic shop hand them their comics in an unmarked paper bag with the covers ripped off to avoid knowing the name and cover art before they read the comic? Do they walk in like:

    Customer: Please give me any Transformers comics that came in.
    Comic book guy: Do you want the De....
    Customer: NO DON'T SAY THE TITLE! I might get a clue to what happens in the book early! (sticks fingers in ears and starts to sing "LA LA LA!")

    yeah, you'd think it'd be awesome, but i found the story to be pretty awful... i bought the first issue, then sold it later... only read the TF tie-ins, and read the last issue in store...

    No, that a typo, it's the "The Def of Optimus Prime". Op hosts a night at Def Comedy Jam.

    You just have to buy the super expensive iPod docking station Prime.
