The only downside to this set is that it doesn't have any of the shorts that were made in addition to the episodes.

Checked my Walmart for Season 3 today, and they didn't have it. :?

At least "Transform and Roll Out" is on there, and in episode format.

I picked up the Complete Series not this past weekend but the one before at my local HMV for ~$30. Promptly canceled my Amazon order.

Saw today at my local Wal-mart for $27 and Season 3 for $13.

Had financial troubles, needed to cancel preorder. Am heartbroken.

Hopefully this set will stay in circulation for a while...

I'm in Ottawa and the weirdest thing happened. Saw this set at Wal-mart but didn't have any cash on me so I decided to pick it up a couple of days later. In that time it seems to have completely disappeared from all stores. I have tried EVERYWHERE and have not seen one single copy. I just find it difficult to believe this would sell out in two days. Experience has taught me that this sort of stuff is not a real fast mover around these parts.

Just checked Disciples of Boltax, and no mention of this yet. I need to know whether this will have any new content (maybe the mirror universe stuff and more of Derrick J. Wyatt's character designs?), because I'm still kicking myself for waiting too long on The Complete Ark due to having the two original volumes.

Much more concerned about that delayed package-art book though. Gotta' have that.

After seeing the article, I decided to try finding out whether the book truly would be 'Complete', asking Jim Sorenson about whether the magazine scans would be included. His reply:

"Howdy! I didn't come up with the title, which itself may change between now and publication. I'd love to be able to include the Fun Publications material in the collected volume. Right now that question isn't settled. My editors may want to keep it to just V1 and V2 to keep things simple. If you're interested in having everything in one place, you might write to IDW and let them know, either directly to their editorial staff or by a post on their forums.

Thank you for your warm wishes and I hope you're happy with the combined volume, whatever the final decision about contents is.

Cheers,
Jim"

I don't know if it's already set in stone one way or another, but I plan on doing my part to get those pages into the book!

I hope the additional material isn't in this book, it would be completely unfair to the people who already have volumes 1 and 2. I don't want to buy the same book twice for new material (again)

Missed the two Allspark Almanac volumes separately (not proud of that), so I'll be getting this even if I need to turn to petty crime to do so.

If there's no new material that wasn't in either of the previous Almanacs or in any of the Addendums, I'm hesitant to double-dip on this.

The Complete Allspark Almanac Cover Art Revealed

Postby Va'al » Mon Jan 26, 2015 7:26 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Via Jim Sorenson's Disciples of Boltax blog, we finally get a look at the cover for his and Bill Forster's upcoming Complete Allspark Almanac! Artwork by Marcelo Matere and Josh Perez, showing off the main cast of Dinobots, Autobots, Decepticons, and some humans too, from Optimus Prime to Shockwave, Megatron and Captain Fanzone, Omega Supreme and Cheetor, Rodimus and G2 Sideswipe - make sure to check it out below.

It looks like The Complete AllSpark Almanac is just three short weeks away, with an ETA of February 18th at fine comic book stores everywhere. (Probably hitting Amazon shortly thereafter, available for preorder now.) Here's Marcelo Matere's beautiful cover for the book, with excellent Josh Perez colors. (Josh also lent his talents to some of the new bonus material inside the book.)

For those of you who missed our Radio Free Cybertron interview, this is going to be a massive, 472 page tome that combines The AllSpark Almanac, The AllSpark Almanac II, The AllSpark Almanac Addenda we put together for the Transformers Collectors' Club, and ten-ish pages of new content teasing more of what Season 3.5 might look like. We worked closely with Derrick Wyatt to ensure that the book was as close to 100% canon as possible, with all new material carefully vetted (and a bit of old material tweaked or recontextualized.) I hope that you all get a big kick out of this one. V1 and V2 are insanely hard to find and fetch ridiculous prices on the secondary market, so it's very nice to get this material back in print where everyone can get a copy.

If the second Almanac's coverage of season 4 is anything to go by, it'll predominately be text talking about the season's episodes with very few images of production art and concept sketches.

Still, the text in the second Almanac was very much worth a read, so any further text we get in this one should be great too. ;)^

How is it unfair? It both gives those who missed the first two another chance to get them, and gives those who did get the first two incentive to get this one, appealing to both audiences and enhancing the existing collection with a third book. 8)
