    Less pages than that digest one released a couple years ago so I guess the free comic book day issue is still missing. And I'm assuming they'll cut extra covers or all of them. But I guess this will be normal sized

    So is this Armada Omnibus a IDW re-release of the Dreamwave Armada comics?

    ^That's what I'm guessing, since without covers and stuff, the series' eighteen issues (22 pages each, right?) would total about 400 pages.

    Thanks for sharing. This may be a good time for me to dive into some Dreamwave stuff.

    I would question re-releasing Dreamwave crap, but I guess keeping it around is a great way to not repeat its mistakes.

    "Transformers volume 8 will likely pick up with issue #39 of the ongoing Transformers title."

    No, #39-41 are in the Combiner Wars trade (along with Windblade v2 #1-3). This will probably be #42-45.

    Aside from the War Within comics the Armada comics were some of the best from dreamwave and thankfully Pat Lee only drew a few chapters because we all know his art sucks. The rest was drawn by professionals. That's pretty cool that IDW's re-releasing these

    Ah right, totally my bad. I'm on Vol. 7 now.

    I agree. With the exception of the super rushed ending, I enjoyed Armada. Really wished they collected that Free Comic Book day issue for the sake of completeness....

    Personally I think Dreamwave Armada was worst then the Armada anime. The Dreamwave version feels more generic and not as memorable.

    I own a volume of the comic, i wasn't impressed.

    Why would they re-releasea comic WITHOUT the full and proper pages from the original? Unless this version is significantly less to buy than said original colleagues comics, then IDW can go do one.

    I simply cannot understand how IDW doesn't "get" the idea of collected comics. They're the comic equivalent of DVD boxed sets. That's why noone bought the regular LOTR boxed sets; because everyone was waiting for the "full" director's cut, which is now seen as the "normal" version.

    I don't understand how IDW does reprints either.

    On one hand, I give them tons for credit for collecting stuff never collected before (some Devil's Due G.I. Joe issues and Marvel UK issues).

    But on the other hand, WTF with things like missing covers. How hard is it to include all of them? It's not like they have to make new art.

    Oh more details have been posted on Amazon:

    Transformers: Armada Omnibus: Diamond Comic Distributors Inc: 9781631405631: Amazon.com: Books

    The Decepticons, feeding off the energy of captured Mini-Cons, are about to begin a hostile takeover of the Transformers' home planet, Cybertron. Do Optimus Prime and the heroic Autobots stand a chance of defending the planet against these super-powered villains? And will the Mini-Cons ever get their freedom back? The action is so explosive that the shockwaves will shake not only Cybertron but even planet Earth right down to the core. All 18 issues of Transformers: Armada are collected in this omnibus.

    Transformers Volume 8: Diamond Comic Distributors Inc: 9781631405853: Amazon.com: Books

    The COMBINER WARS are over, and OPTIMUS PRIME faces the aftermath. Meanwhile, ARCEE confronts GALVATRON; SOUNDWAVE and COSMOS come face to face; TRACKS and NEEDLENOSE meet up again; and JETFIRE and KUP lead a team to investigate the mysterious ONYX system. It collects issues numbered 42-45 of the ongoing "Transformers" series

    Um, so do we have any idea when the remaining issues of Windblade will be collected in TPB? And what about the Combiner Hunters one-shot? It's really annoying we don't know anything yet.
