    YAY! Vol 2 is up for pre-order.
    https://www.amazon.com/Transformers...ds=transformers&qid=1572263667&s=books&sr=1-8

    Description is really vague so not sure what it's going to include:

    Originally serialized in Japan’s TV Magazine, these classic stories from the Generation 1 era of Transformers are now available in English for the first time!

    The Autobots and the Decepticons have been locked in a brutal civil war for eons, and now their battle has come to Earth! The Autobots seek peace and coexistence, while the Decepticons seek power and control. Earth and its populace are caught in the middle as these mighty factions go head-to-head. Transformers took the world by storm shortly after their debut, and these previously uncollected stories were a vital part of that takeover!

    The interstellar conflict between the Autobots and the Decepticons has taken over Earth! The Autobots and their allies are desperate to protect their newfound home from the predations of the Decepticons, but will the bravery of the Autobots be enough to stem the tide?

    I think I’m going to get in both of these. Maybe in digital if available.

    Nice! This prompted me to look on the Diamond/Previews Pullbox website to see if I can preorder this through my local shop.
    The solicitation for volume 2 doesn't appear to be up yet, but volume 1 is available for preorder there (with a January release date). I went ahead and reserved a copy. I am looking forward to a new trip down a worn path of nostalgia. It was such a hoot reading the Titan reprints of the UK material for the first time 15 years ago, I'm sure this'll be a similarly familiar yet all new G1 experience.

    I wonder what the contents are going to contain? I’d assume that Vol 1 is Fight! Super Lifeform and maybe Headmasters, would that make this Masterforce and Victory?

    For some reason, there is a shipping charge now on these for Japan-based customers. Usually, Amazon doesn't charge for shipping for domestic parcels.

    EDIT:-Silly me, I thought these were listings to Amazon Japan. Below are the listings for Amazon Japan, if anyone's interested. They might be a bit cheaper than ordering from Amazon US.

    Part One:
    - https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/1974710564/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?keywords=1974710564&qid=1572301025&sr=8-1

    Part Two:

    It's almost surreal to see the G1 manga finally available for English-speaking fans to buy. Before the first volume was announced by Viz, I never thought we would get these translated. It may have taken a while, but it was worth the wait.

    $25 for a 344 page hardcover is an incredibly good price. Am I reading something wrong?

    I’m sure the price will go down like the first volume. Mine first one is locked in at $17.12.

    Indeed, I never imagined this happening!

    Being in Japan for years seeing the original Japanese version here and there online, it was actually on my buy list but I never ended up getting it; I am so enthusiastic about an English version, hardcover volumes to top it off! And a good price, the original easily goes up to $70~80.00 in Japan.

    If you're comparing that price to Marvel/IDW/DC comics with same pages, keep in mind these are in black and white and much smaller.
