Out of curiosity, did any of you know that the Action Force and the Transformers story with Blades, Grimlock and Megatron was reprinted in the GI Joe European Missions reprint book that came out here in the States. I had no idea! Just discovered it last night while taking pictures for about 350+ comics I photographed yesterday to list in the Seibertron.com eBay store.

According to this website, the story spans the first 6 issues. What a shame that they didn't put anything about the Transformers on the front cover. My how times have changed!

I have very vague memories of these, these two franchises have always been entwined. I'm suprised they never did more of a cartoon crossover in the 80s (other than the Easter eggs in the third season of g1)

I still can't believe they haven't done an official GI Joe vs Transformers toy line at retail. I still call BS on the explanation being retailer confusion, especially since GI Joe is no longer occupying space at retail, which is really sad for a brand with such an amazing legacy.

Was that the reason they used? A GI Joe vs TF line would be so good if done right.

Does it have TF UK 125 or is it just the Action Force branded crossover issues?

I'd love to see this made as something like the Diaclone reboot line, just a smidgen bigger so that you could actually tell who's who with the Joes.

I don't understand the question. TF UK 125 is an Action Force / Transformers crossover book.
