    Recently I remembered this TF comic in particular, the TF Cybertron "balancing act" short lived comic. It was loosely based off of the Dreamwave Armada / Energon continuity but still followed the story of the actual Cybertron show (??)

    Unfortunately, this one comic seems to be the least documented. There aren't any scans online anywhere and hardly are any preview pages. Lately I've seen some of the IDW graphic novel versions pop up on ebay though, is this worth a buy? Thanks.

    If you mean the full collection that collects all the stories I'd go for it as long as it wasn't too expensive. It's a pretty decent read, or maybe it just looks better nowadays due to how subpar TF content has become of late.

    Received my copy of the collection that collects all the issues into one, surpisingly, it was a very good read. It has the Star Wars the Clone Wars "behind the scenes" theme to it, especially with some certain characters that show up. All whilist taking place during the Cybertron show. Definitely would recommend.

    I remember really liking the issue where Unicron revives himself by corrupting a planet's populace into eating each other. Worth it for that alone I think.

    it also loosely finishes up the transformers universe comic and has mild ties to the 3h bw/bm/wreckers continuity

    It's fun, an off-the-beaten-path story. I enjoyed it.

    Same here. Haven't pulled out the single issues in a long time.

    Was there one edition with everything in it? I'd have interest in a collection if one exists.

    I believe there was. I managed to get my hands on a digital copy somewhere along the line, that's how I was able to read it, and I believe it was from a collected edition

    The first two years of the club magazine's comic strip were produced by IDW on behalf of the club, so IDW got to put out a trade paperback collecting those twelve strips. From 2007 onwards, Fun Pub took the comic strip in-house, so there were no more TPBs.
