Wait a sec! According to that table of contents, there are two whole stories missing from the 1988 Annual that this TPB is supposed to contain. And both of those are pivotal, important parts of the main Marvel UK story, both in regards to the other issues compiled in this book and to the upcoming "Time Wars" epic. Why are they not here, IDW?

Those stories are probably being saved for the next volume since they tie directly to Time Wars.

Yeah, but they're a part of this book's Annual. Roberts better at least acknowledge their being held back.

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Comparing the TFWiki contents for the same annual (marked as 1989 on the wiki), they're all in there except for:

Both “Altered Image!" and “All In The Minds!" are reprinted in Transformers Classics UK, Volume 6, as including them in this volume would have disrupted the “in universe” sequencing of the stories: “Altered Image!" takes place after issue #189’s “Dry Run!" and “All In The Minds!" makes more sense when read alongside “Time Wars," wherein certain dangling plot threads are resolved.
(Roberts, p. 296)

It is, however, available on Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/dp/1613777140/

Did the previous volumes get put on Comixology?
