    Many thanks! I'll take a chance and get this one ordered.

    Good to hear the TF one shots are included. Is it all in reading order or are they separate from the main event?

    Two more books are up on FP, Issue 88/vol 95 is (the confusingly titled) GI Joe vs Transformers Part 1 and 89/85 is The Falling Part 2. Joe vs TF Part 1 is likely to be a collection the Devil's Due crossovers and Falling Part 2 will probably wrap up OP

    Can anyone confirm if Ghosts is included in the G2 book? It's advertised as being in there on the back but I can't seem to find it other than the cover on the last page.

    Don't have a copy at hand but I think it's included after issue 2 as a backup

    I wasn't going to pick up Vol.89 to relive the trauma of huge faves bodycount but they had to put the flippin' OG1 TFs Vs. Joe Crossover in there, and I can't pass up Bumblebee's alternate universe death & rebirth!

    I had a faff finding it myself. It's in the book but the 'Ghosts' title is kinda hidden because it's a seethrough-ish design and the page artwork is pretty cluttered.

    Looks like issue #85 is an error issue. My copy had all the introduction stuff near the back of the book so the pages are obviously in the wrong place.

    Two more issues up on Forbidden Planet, Issue 90/ Vol 93 is Beast Wars The Gathering and 91/86 is The Everlasting Voices. Interesting to see if they collect both BW minis into one book or split them over two and fill out the page count with stuff like the BW Sourcebook and Dawn of the Predacus. 91 however is almost certainly LL 13 - 18

    I have an order with WHsmith and understandably they are closed due to coronavirus. I wonder if when the shops reopen all my issues will be received or wether i will have to order them online.

    Hrm. My WHSmith is still opening, albeit with tight restrictions on how many customers are allowed in the store at once. Might possibly be because there's a post office in there too.
    As for your issues, I'm sure I remember seeing something on the Hachette TF Facebook page regarding closed stores and that books will still be sent out and saved for when stores reopen. You might need to recheck to confirm that though as things keep changing as situations demand.

    I thought my WHSmith would be open as it is a newsagents. Plus i was sure i read somewhere they were open. Glad i wasnt completely wrong.
    Thanks though. I will check it out.

    Well, they're not going to do a corrected run of issue #85. That's irksome.

    So... Hachette have posted on their Facebook for this collection that they're handing the page over to the fans. Not entirely sure what real difference that will make apart from it becoming even harder to contact them when there's a problem. Seems to me like they've just given up on it all and are hoping the final issues will go by without any problems they'll have to acknowledge, address or solve.
    I'd still like issue #85 corrected, but I guess that's now even less likely to happen after this announcement.
