I am eager to collect the entire "all hail megatron" series for reading but is rather confused over the right collection to buy since these two compilation seem to be similar:

a) Transformers: The Complete All Hail Megatron HC [Hardcover]

b)Transformers: The IDW Collection Volume 5 [Hardcover]

Could anyone enlighten me on the differences in terms of content? Thanks a lot

I too am interested in this. I assumed that the AHM hardcover would be best, but has it even been released yet?

From what I can gather, TF Collection vol. 5 will contain AHM #1-16. The Complete AHM will have AHM #1-16, and will also include the 5 related spotlight issues (Blurr, Jazz, Drift, Cliffjumper, Metroplex).

The spotlights are spread out among the IDW collection volumes based on chronological relevance rather than direct connection to AHM.

Complete AHM comes out this Wednesday, I think(?).

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the information, did not know that AHM collection comes with spotlight issues too, surprising indeed. Well I think if IDW 5 is cheaper option.
