It's not the wow-fest of Dreamwave, so far, but it's interesting. A little more marvel-ly.

At $2.50, I'd quite like the Megs cover..but I just got back from town, so there's nothing near me. :(

I could see if there's still one left here if you want, but it'd cost you an extra 80 cents postage!

I want to buy IDW collection Vol. 1. Any thoughts on Megatron Origins?

Also anyone wanting to sell there IDW collection Volumes 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8?

Was thinking of trying it out here before I try my luck on Ebay, Amazon or Book Depository.

Megatron Origins is the 1st series in terms of IDWs timeline.
A couple flashback scenes predate it, but it's pretty much THE starting point for Cybertron's uprising and subsequent civil war.

Must have if you want to see the full picture.. especially if you want to know whats going on in Megatrons head in the current More than meets the eye series.


Pretty much all of IDW is strong with the weakest links being:
Transformers / Avengers cross over: 'nuff said
Heart of Darkness: Art + Story is awful and _almost_ not part of the canon its so weird
Bumblebee #1-4: IMO lame art + weak story
"Transformers" #1 -#6: Story and most the art is good BUT the faces the artist drawers BUG the hell out of me. Personal preference here but worth noting :P
Wanted:
Mint "Euro g1" / g2 anything
aka Turbomasters, Predators, Obliterators, Axelerators, Skyscorchers, Aquaspeeders, Stormtroopers, Lightformers

Thanks! That pretty much made me tip over the line. Hmmm... Now have to save then the fun starts, ebay, Amazon... First world problems - choices, choices, choices. Funny how I think about comics and toys while other folks are living like $1.50 a day. Hmmm... Does ADs on do the Famine are working.

Read book 1 and 2 of Megatron Origins. A bit late for me yes I know - but wouldn't it be epic if Megatron got Leader Class or Voyager class figure of him on the mines?

Just found a new respect for the old bad guy. Its like rich folk stepping on the weak or say Automated robots taking over daily jobs and normal folk getting angry. It really is a classic - guy isn't a bad guy, some prick pushed the right buttons and the anger inside ignites.

Finally up to date, what a glorious 2 months it has been.

Would really recommend the series to everyone, such amazing developments that has refined my favourites further.

Will have to ignore it for a few months to build up a stockpile again

Reading online, you should go through IDW collection then go through the two recent series of MTMTE & RID, very good but they have a weird mixed story line cause theres cross overs every so often.

I just had to do it after some CW toyline figures came with spoilers hahah
