    Interesting. I wonder if volume 12 is the last Phase 2 volume. I think I'll be done after that. I didn't care for the direction of the shared universe.

    I never read any of the shared universe material, I had dropped all the books by then. I might check this one out.

    Phase Three: When Hasbro's desire for an equivalent MCU and corporate synergy destroyed good storytelling.

    The Hasbro Universe idea actually came from IDW, not from Hasbro, as they were plotting their various Hasbro books and got the idea that they could be connected.

    Wait there were three phases? I thought it was just two, splitting at Death of Optimus Prime?

    Gotta love how they're more interested in giving us all of this shit-show than giving us the rest of the UK collection.

    Interesting I always figured if there was a phase 3 it be from Revolution onwards didn\'t actually think that was the official terminology that HASBRO or IDW or whoever was using. Frankly I never minded the whole Hasbroverse idea even if the continuity with G.I. JOE was a bit jarring at times. I always thought the likes of ROM and Micronauts were the best reads if anyone\'s wondering what\'s worth getting into. Other than Transformers ROM probably had the best closure too in his own story.

    Aye I wonder why IDW would be more interested in releasing IDW comics than Marvels.

    Please tell me you aren't being serious with this response. I'm begging you, you make this way too easy for me.

    The UK classics are an IDW book, just re-releasing the UK Marvel run and unlike the majority of IDW's own TF continuity, is a lot better overall. You realize this is a thing comic companies do, yes?

    Every time I hear about these collections butchering the chronology of IDW1 again part of me dies inside.

    I mean it's pretty obvious where the money is, as much as I hate to say it.

    To be fair, just because IDW is making it doesn't mean that's where the money is. These days it's not at all uncommon for publishers like IDW or Marvel to just pump out content that people don't want.

    What does this mean? I thought the whole point of the hardcovers was to put it in some preferred reading order or something?

    This announcement is the first time that the name is called Phase 3, and I think they called it previously Season 3, which I prefer because the comics of Transformers are the continuations of the previous comics, the writers are the same and the plots are a direct continuation of the previous plots, the only changed is the name, and TAAO began before Revolution and finished later. The parts of Phase 1 have less connections with each other than this Phase 3 with the Phase 2.
