I would guess, what it being called 'ongoing', they haven't decided how many there would be.

I'm not sure what is going to be in RiD volume one, probably issues 1-6. As for MTMTE, issues 1-6 also including the one shot "The Death of Optimus Prime".

Ok, I've made sure I get the Marcelo Matere interlocking variant for RID and MTMTE, but I also REALLY want that Decepticon face.

I mean REALLY want.

Might have to ask my comic shop to keep both for me.
