    Yes, they are in volumes 16, 17, 19 and 20. I also got volume 18 (which only contains US issues) so the spines form a single image of Hot Rod more or less ;)

    I got most of them through my Comicbookstore in Amsterdam who was able to order them in the UK somehow. And I got some off eBay as well.

    I was surprised by this too - particularly since they included To a Power Unknown from the same annual...

    Yeah, They're rather cheekily sticking some of the UK Annual strips in Non-OG1 collections to tempt us G1-only cherrypickers it seems.

    Anyone else who subscribes not received the previous 2 issues?

    Loads of people of the hachetts FB page are messaging about it.

    Nope. I haven't received anything since 40; the current issue is 45. It seems redundant at this stage to state how woeful and inept this lot are.

    This is awful, and another example of how much Hachette have screwed up this collection. No "Victory" (which ties in to the other stories) but they include "To A Power Unknown"??

    Can somebody answer if they put UK #59-65 BEFORE US #13-16? If not, it runs contradictory to Furman's claims as to why he messed up the order in the "Dinobot Hunt" volume ("because, er... Dinobot Hunt is the main story and might confuse casual readers").

    I feel sorry for anyone collecting this hoping it is in any way definitive. I suppose you could go easy on Hachette, except a) Furman should know better and b) a major hook of the initial advertising campaign was that the US/UK run would be collected in sequential order together for the first time. Well, we see how that turned out...

    I'm still waiting for my most recent delivery. It normally takes two weeks at most, but it's almost the end of week three now!

    Victory does happen before the end of #65 but it's been saved for the Dinobot issue v5.

    The Ravage text story is the extra pages that where cut from the comic - not revealed before. Simon states this for the first time on the contents page.

    I bought 19 issues sealed for £30 off Facebook marketplace and I’m enjoying them so much I picked up 2 more G1 volumes off eBay for £11. You can order off the Hatchett website direct however I see Second Generation (August release) is sold out! Anywhere else I can buy this for a reasonable price, my local
    Forbidden Planet don’t stock them.

    Terrible that the movie adaptation (there are two) aren’t being included. Is that a rights issue?, or Hatchett just being stubborn?

    Make sure if you have picked up any of the volumes with known print mistakes (off the top of my head #1, #16, #17, #30 and now possibly the latest, #47 according to Facebook comments) you have the corrected versions which were reprinted, rather than the initial releases (if that sort of thing bothers you).

    As for the movie adaptations - it's not all on Hachette, but Simon Furman who has curated and organised these volumes. He has made some truly bizarre decisions.

    Pity the latest issue out looks to have an error in it. Bizarrely, speech bubbles from one page have been duplicated onto another page in place of the correct bubbles.

    But it does correct the error when IDW printed it - they printed wrong text in #15 page 12.
