    I saw on Tfwiki about Hot Rod and it brought me to a section of Madman Comics. What are these comic books? Are they a different version of IDW?

    Thanks

    I believe it was a standalone comic that came with the Australian copy of the animated movie. It's a prequel set in 2001 I believe.

    Is it only a one issue, or it has multiple issues? Can it be found at comic book stores?

    You can read, right? You were already on the Transformers Wiki. Let's see.

    The Transformers (Madman) - Transformers Wiki

    Does that answer your question?

    has there ever been a scan available of this anywhere? I'd love to read it seeing as it's a few years old now, a pack in freebie and a foreign exclusive at that. Surely its better than those awful 'beast within' comics that came with the Metrodome sets.

    BUMP!!!!

    The Transformers (Madman) - Transformers Wiki

    MP Hot Rod got me thinking about this...I have never read this comic book but it looks awesome. Too bad it was only available in a limited DVD release in Australia almost 10 years ago.

    I sure would like to read this issue...please PM me if you have any information about if such a thing might be possible.

    I probably have it, I got the original tin and the remastered collections from Madman. But while I could scan them I have no idea how to post attachments.

    Hit the 'Go Advanced' button when you post a reply and click the paperclip icon, that'll let you upload attachments to a post.

    You could also just upload the scans to an image hosting site like Imgur and post the link.

    Not bad for a packaged tie-in. Given that it was written by Furman and illustrated by Roche, I'm surprised it didn't end up getting republished in a random trade or something. (Like as an extra in IDW's movie trade.)

    Thanks for the upload!

    Glad I was able to contribute something here.
