IDW PUBLISHING KICKS OFF SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON WITH THE TRANSFORMERS HUMBLE BUNDLE
Transformers Fans Can Pay What They Want For The Ultimate Transformers Digital Comic Collection While Also Supporting A Child-Focused Charity


San Francisco & San Diego, Calif. - July 23, 2014 - Here's a bundle that's “more than meets the eye." Humble Bundle and award-winning publisher IDW Publishing, under license from Hasbro, are kicking off San Diego Comic-Con with a digital comic collection of epic proportions. Customers can pay what they want while also supporting a child-focused charity in the Transformers Humble Bundle presented by IDW.

https://www.humblebundle.com/books

Customers can name their price for Transformers Classics, Volumes 1-4, featuring a digital reincarnation of 48 issues from the original comics. Those who pay more than the average price will also receive Transformers: All Hail Megatron, Vol. 1-4, Transformers: Autocracy and Transformers: Spotlight, Vol. 1. Customers who pay $15 or more will receive all of the above, plus Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye, Vol. 1 and 2 and Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Vol. 1 and 2, bringing a total of nearly 100 comic book issues to the bundle.

“The iconic TRANSFORMERS brand is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year and can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with this bundle offering. Whether a new reader who wants to get in on the epic TRANSFORMERS adventure, or a long-time fan looking to round out their digital comic collection, this offering is the perfect combination of classic and current stories," said Michael Kelly, Hasbro’s Director of Global Publishing. “Add the fact that a portion of the proceeds will be used to support an amazing charity like the Hasbro Children’s Fund, and you’ve got an event Optimus Prime himself would be proud to join."

“We’re very happy to collaborate with Hasbro to offer this mega selection of Transformers comics," said Jeff Webber, IDW’s VP of Digital Publishing. “This bundle highlights all the facets of IDW’s Transformers line – Classics from the ‘80s, stories from the beginnings of the IDW’s stories of the TRANSFORMERS Universe, and some of the latest and greatest comics!"

As with all Humble Bundles, customers can choose how their purchase dollars are allocated, between the comic creators, Humble Bundle, and the determined charity (the Hasbro Children's Fund).

The Transformers Humble Bundle runs for two weeks and ends Wednesday, August 6, 2014 at 11 a.m. Pacific time.

TRANSFORMERS RETURNS TO HUMBLE BUNDLE WITH IDW PUBLISHING

Postby william-james88 » Wed Mar 04, 2015 4:19 pm

New Transformers Comics Bundle from Humble Bundle. If anyone was wondering what that revealed Leader Ultra Magnus with Minimus Ambus was all about, here is an easy way to get caught up.

It's pay what you want from Humble Bundle:

Transformers comics are so nice, we bundled them twice.

That, and we've got a sweet spot for Bumblebee (let's bee friends)!



From IDW:
TRANSFORMERS RETURNS TO
HUMBLE BUNDLE WITH IDW PUBLISHING
Leading Publisher Re-Teams With The Pay-What-You-Want Site To Offer TRANSFORMERS Comics

San Diego, CA (March 4, 2015) - Humble Bundle and award-winning publisher IDW Publishing, in conjunction with Hasbro, are reteaming to offer the perfect opportunity to build a digital TRANSFORMERS comic collection. Not only does the bundle feature multiple collected volumes of the hit TRANSFORMERS series, it also boasts some of the most recent issues to date, making it easy to catch up to speed on the latest stories.

Humble Book Bundles typically last for a full two-week time span, however, the contents of this particular bundle are so premium that it will run as a limited time one-week offer. Also unique to this bundle is the "pay $5 or more over the average price" tier, which is being utilized in place of the standard fixed price tier.

https://www.humblebundle.com/books

Customers can name their price for the first 37 issues of TRANSFORMERS: More Than Meets the Eye and the one-shot Death of Optimus Prime.

Those who pay more than the average price will also receive volumes 1-6 of TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise as well as TRANSFORMERS: Dark Cybertron Vol. 1.

Customers who pay $5 above the average price or more will receive all of the above plus TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise #33-#37 and TRANSFORMERS: Dark Cybertron Vol. 2.

“This new bundle of Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS comics features the newest directions for Optimus Prime, Megatron, and all your other favorite Autobots and Decepticons," said Jeff Webber, IDW’s VP of Digital Publishing. “This collection includes brand new issues all the way up to the past month, documenting the very latest stories in IDW’s TRANSFORMERS Universe!"

As with all Humble Bundles, customers can choose how their purchase dollars are allocated, between the publishers and charity. The Humble TRANSFORMERS Bundle 2 Presented by IDW supports the Hasbro Children's Fund, which is dedicated to empowering childhood by bringing the sparkle of Hope, the joy of Play and the power of Service into the lives of the children who need it most.

The Humble TRANSFORMERS Bundle 2 Presented by IDW runs from now until Wednesday, March 11, 2015 at 11 a.m. Pacific time.

I think this is exactly what I needed! I got the last Humble Transformers Bundle (All Hail Megatron vol 1-4, MTMTE and RID vol 1-2, and some miscellany) but I never got around to actually reading them :oops: Looks like this will push me closer to catching up.

If you aren't up to date with the comics, and you don't pick this up, then, well, I don't know. Absolute no brainer, the money goes to a good cause, and you get a massive ton of fun reads.

I know you cant stop recomending MTMTE but is RID good too? I ask because its a huge price jump from 50 cents for the most recent MTMTE stuff to about 15$ for the recent RID stuff.

$15 for all that is a steal. If you went to the comic shop today and hypothetically bought Drift #4 (pretend you're behind a week?), TF 38, and MTMTE 38, just one cover of each, that's $12 plus tax.

That part aside, is it worth $15? Yes, very much. RiD volumes 1-5 are hit or miss for sure, but having the Dark Cybertron arc does include things that shouldn't be missed for MTMTE, and post-Dark Cybertron Rid/TF is really quite good.

Could you tell me what Dark Cybertron is about. Not plot necesarily, but who it entails and how it fits in and what should be read before?

Sure!

IDW "Phase 2" Continuity is basically this:
- The Death of Optimus Prime (this is contained within MTMTE Vol. 1)
- MTMTE Vol. 1-5 and RiD Vol. 1-4, which would be "Pre" Dark Cybertron. Not really any need to alternate reading order or anything like that, though I'd recommend RiD Vol. 5 before reading MTMTE Vol. 5 for maximum impact on, uh, one page or so.

Then "Dark Cybertron" as a whole is best explained as this (ripping off TF Wiki here):
1. RiD issue 6 (Found in RiD Vol. 2)
2. RiD issue 10 (Found in RiD Vol. 3)
3. Spotlights comprising "Dark Prelude", which are sadly not in this bundle. These would be the spotlights for, in "correct" order, Orion Pax, Thundercracker, Megatron, Bumblebee, Trailcutter, and Hoist. These are not essential to your enjoyment of the rest, and are all over the place in terms of the overall IDW timeline. Not bad reads at all, but not completely essential.
4. RiD Volume 5
5. Technically, MTMTE Issue 22, but, eh. Kind of?
6. Dark Cybertron itself, which consists of an opening one-shot issue, the next 5 issues of both MTMTE and RiD, and then a closing one-shot issue. So direct involvement in both books with characters from both. A crossover event in a very true sense.

Then there's Post-Dark Cybertron's "Dawn of the Autobots", which is really just a tagline for these three separate stories that occur roughly at the same time as on another:
1. MTMTE Vol. 6
2. RiD Vol. 6
3. Windblade Mini-Series (not in the bundle)

Then there's where we are now, with stuff just sort of ongoing:
1. MTMTE 34-38; bundle has 34-37. Kind of just goes off and does its own thing at this point.
2. RiD/TF 33-38; bundle has 33-37. Continues from where RiD Vol. 6 leaves off and leads in to Combiner Wars.
3. "Punishment" One-Shot - not in the bundle. Occurs sometime after RiD 34 and leads directly in to Combiner Wars, supposedly.
4. Drift: Empire of Stone - not in the bundle. Four issue side story that occurs sometime after MTMTE Vol. 6. Not essential, so far, though pretty fun.

Hope that helps!

Gotta love the humble bundle.

The moon reader app they recommend works great. I read on a tablet and use the humblebundle app to download directly to my device.

The site has a few FAQs. I just followed the link I got in my e-mail and downloaded the PDFs onto my computer to read them.

Also, I am really hoping they add Last Stand of the Wreckers in a week when they give the bonus stuff.

Thanks! I just got the email. Couldn't seem to find a "Download All" button. I guess you just have to right click and save each one individually?

Also, how does the bonus stuff usually work? Do you have to donate more or do you automatically get it if you already donated?

Also, how does the bonus stuff usually work? Do you have to donate more or do you automatically get it if you already donated?


You download them all individually (like that you dont have to use up all of your data or memory. And you might not want them all, who knows)

Aso, the bonus stuff will be automatically included if it is within the tier you already bought.

So if you got the beat the average and they add something in that category, you will get it.

Just when I was about to buy all of RID, this happens. Good. Too bad I actually like having the physical copies.

The site has a few FAQs. I just followed the link I got in my e-mail and downloaded the PDFs onto my computer to read them.

And if you want to raise your payment after-the-fact, whether just for goodwill or to get stuff from a higher reward bracket, they allow you to pay the difference for as long as this bundle is running.

Awesome! Thanks, guys! I hope they include Windblade as a bonus since I haven't read her mini-series yet and just got her Takara figure.

I agree, Windblade would be great to get out of this. We'll see what happens, Hasbro/IDW may want people to go buy the TPB for that instead.

Motto: "Don't do drugs, beer's cheaper anyway!"
I hate the Humble Bundle guys, this is the third one I bought, and I still haven't read all the stuff I got from the previous two XD I just seem to drop money and forget about reading it.
Well OK, the last TF bundle was mostly just to get digital versions of stuff I already had anyway :lol:
But the last was the Valiant bundle, and I only read part of one trade.
And I complain I keep running out of stuff to read ...

I picked up the whole Humble Bundle (great cause). I had been meaning to pick up the TPBs for More Than Meets the Eye, but got sticker shock on top of only being able to find #3. Now I have all six complete volumes of MTMTE AND RID. Got through Vol 1 and 2 of MTMTE at work. I don't know how or why I managed to not get into this series earlier, it is so good!

Dollars and cents of it all notwithstanding - Go hardcover on LSotW - a lot of great world building prose that is unlikely to get published elsewhere.
