I just read Stormbringer not to long ago. I remember linking it a lot.

Well well, it's that time to play catch up again ;)^

Someone should check if this extends to all of IDW's Hasbro universe. I looked and all the ROM issues are .99 as well as wrath of Karza

I bought all of TAAO and Stormbringer. I wish Sotrmbringer was collected but oh well. Also, anyone know why issue 10 of TAAO is double the price (when its not on sale)?

All new issues of IDW digital comics are $3.99. Normally, the price drops to $1.99 after a month/whenever the next issue is released. So, you can always get a 50% discount if you're willing to be one issue behind.

I need some advice/assistance:

I will be collecting the post-Death of Optimus Prime IDW comics in the form of the hardcover collections: I have the first 4 of the new ones.
I also have the compendium, which includes Infiltration, Stormbringer, Escalation, and a handful of Spotlights.
I'm also probably going to get Vol. 8 of the original collection for Chaos, and Vol. 4 for Revelation and Maximum Dinobots.
What I don't know is how best to get Devastation or if I should read the original ongoing.

Any thoughts?

If you're just going physical copies for post-DOOP, then this sale might be your best bet for Devastation.

What do you mean by original ongoing? Infilitration, the Costa era...?

Ah, I see, I was referring to 'The Transformers'
But, come to think of it, does AHM have enough plot elements in it to be worth reading eventually?

AHM for better or for worse significantly changed the course of the IDWverse and kicked off a lot of events that still effect modern day stories, especially in regards to Revolution (MASK and GI Joe in particular are in response to the events of AHM). The problem isn't that it doesn't have plot or doesn't have consequences or change anything; just that it's unoriginal and not very good at what it does.

There's been a couple IDW series called 'the transformers'. First was the 2009 series headed by Mike Costa which follows AHM and precedes Death of Optimus Prime and ran for 31 issues (with many minis on the side like LSoTW and Bumblebee). The second was the continuation of post-2011 Robots in Disguise; renamed to simply 'The Transformers' so as not to be confused with the 2015 cartoon and toyline of the same name. The fandom tends to call it 'ex-RiD' to differentiate it.

This really is much more confusing than it needs to be isn't it?
I was referring to the earlier title, between AHM and DoOP.
As for AHM, is it worth it over just reading a summary?

In my opinion not really; the Coda (issues 13-16 that are after the main story) has some good stuff, but AHM was universally reviled by IDW fans and for good reasons. Still, at the end of the day my thinking it's awful is just an opinion - if you wanna try it out for yourself and find some enjoyment in it, all the power to you.

Comixology IDW All-ages sale until 8/14 -- Transformers Animated, Angry Birds Transformers

While it ends in just a few days, Comixology's IDW All-ages sale is still going; with some of their digital comics having up to 50% off. While this is primarily aimed at younger audiences and hence IDW's main Transformers titles such as More Than Meets The Eye and the recently-ended Till All Are One aren't included, there's still a fair few comics of our favourite Transforming robots -- largely IDW's old Transformers Animated and Angry Birds Transformers tie-in material! Transformers Animated, The Arrival, Angry Birds Transformers and perhaps most notably The Allspark Almanac are scattered about pages 1, 7 and 8 of the link in the image below; so click it if you're interested and let us know if you got a decent haul from this!

So I've been thinking of picking up the Lost Light Volume 1 collected edition and perhaps the MTME ones. I have the individual issues digitally, but I'm wondering if there is an added benefit to get the collected? Like do the digital versions have additional art in the end of the book, or collect all the covers separately?

Also just curious, what type of reading do you prefer? Single issue, month by month, or wait till trade comes out. It seems to me they're priced the same more or less
