Sorry for the double post, I missed that it was covered in another thread. I thought this was the main thread for the phase two collection.

IDW Collection Phase Two Volume 4 is releasing on Wednesday (Oct 19), but Amazon is accepting regular orders for it today. While I was on, I noticed they have preorders up for Volume 5. There is no cover art, but there is a description:

At the dawn of the conflict, battle lines are drawn and sides are set… now legends will be made in PRIMACY. On current Cybertron, Shockwave sets into motion a long-gestating plan but Soundwave, now commander of the Decepticons, confronts him in the ancient Crystal City. On the Lost Light, Rodimus leads his crew to the gates of heaven–or something much worse as larger forces close in and an ancient plan is reaching fruition.

Collects Transformers: Primacy, Transformers: Robots in Disguise #19–22, and Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #17–22.

The release date is Feb 21, 2017. Though it has been my experience that the release date is often pushed back a month. I get the impression that these collections are not very popular. I don't think they sell out. I have never needed to preorder them. I usually wait until release.

Transformers: IDW Collection Phase Two Volume 6 Amazon Preorder

Postby Va'al » Mon Feb 13, 2017 7:48 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Via fellow Seibertronian ScottyP, we have news about the latest listing for an IDW Collection book up on online retailer Amazon.com. Currently ready to preorder for $34.65, with a scheduled release of 9/26/2017, is the Phase 2 Volume 6 collected volume, including Dark Cybertron and the first Windblade series, and a cover that is just logical. Check it out below!

Image


The end of everything! Shockwave makes a move millions of years in the planning–an ultimate strategy to remake Cybertron and destroy both the Autobots and Deceptions! Only the combined forces of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Rodimus can save their world–but billions of miles and eons of war leave our heroes divided, in “Dark Cybertron.” Plus, Windblade takes the planet by storm–but where did she come from–and what does her secret mean for the future of the Transformers?

Collects Dark Cybertron #1 and Finale, More Than Meets The Eye issues #23–27, Robots In Disguise issues #23–27, and Windblade issues #1–4.

Thanks to an updated listing on Amazon.com, we now have the cover art for Phase 2, Vol. 7 of the IDW Collection. This collection contains issues 28-34 of both Transformers: Robots in Disguise and Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye. Due to be released on March 27, 2018 in hardback form, the cover features Megatron in the same art style as the previous Phase 2 collections; appropriate, as these are the issues where Autobot Megatron joins the Lost Light! Will you be pre-ordering this volume? Let us know in the Energon Pub Forums!

Odd it uses one of his during-war designs rather than the one he took on the Lost Light without juxtaposition.

Called it.

Also, can anyone confirm whether these are a good deal or not? I think they are, considering they're hardcover, but I can't tell.

I was interested in picking some of these up to read through since I got tired of buying the individual series and not knowing where and when different miniseries took place, so I thought this would be a good way to get items in order and catch up, but then I noticed vol two of both phase 1 and phase 2 seems to be out of print.

As for phase 1, try the compendium, which collects phase 1 volumes 1 and 2, published in 2016.
With phase 2, have you tried Amazon? It usually tells me more are on the way with IDW stuff (can't check now).

I see... I would get the trade paperbacks for RiD and MTMTE, and get the Spotlights (And Autocracy) on ComiXology or another digital site. I did something similar with Furman's work. If you can, wait for the sales on comiXology, as they seem to occur fairly frequently.
That's what I would do.

I'm not a big fan of digital comics, since it hurts my eyes after a short time when I read them. I still like physical copies. I mean ultimately its not going to bother me if I don't get to read the stuff,I've gone years without with only a couple of times I've questioned what somethign was about because it was a comic only thing.

Some time ago I completed 'Phase One' of the HC Collection. It started off so well with Simon Furman's -Ations, Spotlights, Megatron: Origin etc and then the quality began to drop. First with McCarthy and later the all time low of Costa (Although Space Opera was a welcome highlight there).

Now as I read exclusively through trades, I accept I am often months to years behind. I'm patient, it doesn't bother me. That said the general chatter I heard around the (then) RiD and MTMTE did concern me.
I've never been a fan of retcons and given how thorough Furman had been in laying down the foundations of the IDWverse, what I was hearing especially with characterisation, had me concerned. Long dead now, but I really liked the idea of Ultra Magnus as "Judge Dredd in Space".

So I bit the bullet and bought Phase Two vol.1, to continue the collection. Although the renumbering does mess with the prior aesthetic of the other books.. But I digress. So after reading that volume, my concerns were justified. So far removed from expectation it wasn't even funny. I actually sold the book on and cut my loses with 'Phase One' vol.8 and left IDWverse behind.
Better to read Origin, the original Spotlights etc than forcing regressive humanising traits on previously established characters and lore.

And that's why for many years, I once more quit Transformers. The second time since Beast Machines ended.

A little late but try Book Depository. They are who I bought the IDW Collection from and more often than not the prices are more reasonable than Amazon.

Full Preview for Transformers: IDW Collection Phase Two, Volume 7

Postby Va'al » Tue Mar 20, 2018 3:15 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Out this month from IDW Publishing is the seventh volume in the hardcover IDW Collection of Transformers comics (in the branch known as Phase 2) as we have reached More Than Meets the Eye and Robots in Disguise 28 to 34, after the events of Dark Cybertron and the beginning of Dawn of the Autobots. Check it out below!

Transformers: IDW Collection Phase Two, Vol. 7
James Roberts, John Barber (w) • Alex Milne, Andrew Griffith, Atilio Rojo (a) • Marcelo Matere (c)
MEGATRON assumes control of the quest to find the Knights of Cybertron—a quest that has never before been so urgent, so personal, and so likely to end in tears. But the crew of the Lost Light isn't so eager to follow his orders and, as is always the case, past decisions will come back to haunt them. Plus, The AUTOBOTS return to Earth—with OPTIMUS PRIME in command! But what is bringing them back—and what terrifying secret do the humans hold? And GALVATRON is on Earth as well, with a plan to reshape it as he once did with Cybertron. A bold new era begins here! Collects issues #28–34 of More Than Meets The Eye and #28–34 of Robots In Disguise.
HC • FC • $49.99 • 340 pages • 7” x 11” • ISBN: 978-1-68405-149-6

Bullet points:
· Advance solicited for March release!
· The IDW Collection gives completionists every last issue and makes sure beginners have everything they need to get started.

Does anyone else think that a red eyed scowling evil looking Megatron is not really appropriate during a time that Megatron is reformed and trying to gain redemption? But still looking forward to this, the IDW continuity was on it's way toward Dark Cybertron by the time I jumped on so these books are a good way to collect large swaths of the story at once.

Currently priced at $49.99, you can place an order here!

Meanwhile, on Earth, Prowl is left in command gathering his allies, the Constructicons, to search for the one human he holds a grudge against, Spike Witwicky. Then, Drift returns! After leaving the Autobots in disgrace, he's now alone, on a mission to clean up the darkest depths of the galaxy.

So... I was going to get the Dinobot, Drift, and Windblade TPB’s instead of these last three (already have Dark Cybertron from way back when I tried IDW the first time), but I’m not entirely sure. Does anyone that’s read these comics have any thoughts or advice?

If your plan is to have a nice, uniform display, the IDW Collection are great volumes for that sort of thing. I'm more of a trade paperback reader, so would personally recommend the TPBs instead.

By those three you mention, do you mean the collected works for each of those characters? If not, there are recent TPB collections that include pretty much all recent stories about all three (and again, I think that's what you're referring to!).
