Blurrz? It's called "ReGeneration One" and not Regenration. ;)

Besides that, I have to confess that I want to get the collected edition now. However, I am conflicted with that thought as I think I will like the second story arc more and prefer hardback over paperback.

And wait... Is that Galvatron I see?! :shock: Interesting. :-?

I guess Galvatron survived the Maximus-administered bitch-slapping.

Hmmmm... I guess Marvel/IDW G1 Maximus was not Autopimp enough to put Galvatron in his place. :lol:

Will the ReGen TPB include 80.5?

Yes. Simply because they would be foolish not to add it, as it is part of the series. :PEACE:

Don't think it will be included.

Really? Because it was an actual issue, it recapped the events that the reader needs to know before reading issue 81, and not many readers did not get it. So them not adding it would not make for a good first volume. :???:

I do agree that it should contain it, even though it's a free comic book day release, DC included Blackest Night #0 in the TPB because it did pertain to the story. I want it to be in there, but it's looking like it won't considering the page number, 132, and the issues 1-5 are tallying up to 23x5 = 115 + the covers and the illustrated extras. 'Course I could be wrong.

Good points.

Then I shall decree that if they don't add it... Then they better make the story arc for volume 2 be very good, and they they better reprint The Headmasters as well (as it would appease me). ;)

Morning guys!
Upon reading your wonderful debate as to whether Transformers ReGeneration #80.5 would or would not be included in the collected trade paperback, I emailed Simon Furman for clarification.

I can't wait to see Prowl kick some serious ass. I love this ruthlessly efficient side he's got these days. He's much less of a boy scout.

Also I can't emphasise how much I'd kill for figures of PRIME Shockwave and his animalistic friend.
