Looking forward to picking this up as well as Volume 2 and Volume 3.


Do we know if there will be a volume 3? I had presumed that the remaining G1 content would be in book 2 but it's been a while since I looked at my original compilation so I can't be certain how much content remains.

Yes. I posted an Amazon link to it previously. Volume 2 contains The Headmasters, the Headmasters one-shot, and Masterforce, while Volume 3 has Victory, the Zone one-shot, and the Battlestars one-shot.

Great review. These stories definitely spark joy, and remind me why I’m such a big Transformers fan in the first place. I read a few chapters last night, and I’m looking forward to reading more tonight. Highly recommended.

Got mine in late last night after work and gave it a quick thumb through. Looks absolutely amazing for a comprehensive compilation. Really looking forward to a chance to sit down and go through it cover to cover. For the low MSRP versus what it would have cost to hunt these all down, its a great value as well.

My copy arrived yesterday, went straight to the top of my manga to-read pile and it has me refocused on finishing Gundam: Ecole du Ciel so I can get to it. Excellent review here, helps set expectations though it's in line with what I'd assumed. Very happy to see this released!

Eh, it's content is kinda pornographic, though. Not exactly the same audience that this manga was aimed at (as in, young kids).

Transformers KISS Players is not pornographic. It does have a level of adult sexual content that some many find inappropriate (especially when associated with Transformers), but it's not pornographic. Hustler and Penthouse magazines are pornographic.

What I found weird about it, is you couldn't find a copy of it online. Like so many manga and comic books can be found to read, and yet this one, nadda.

I, uh, have scans. :-|

Never looked at them, knowing what they contain, but I got them since they were included with the fansubbed release of Car Robots.

Volume 3 has finally been released, as of today!

https://www.amazon.com/dp/1974711781

Originally serialized in Japan’s TV Magazine, these classic stories from the Generation 1 era of Transformers are now available in English for the first time!

The Autobots and the Decepticons have been locked in a brutal civil war for eons, and now their battle has come to Earth! The Autobots seek peace and coexistence, while the Decepticons seek power and control. Earth and its populace are caught in the middle as these mighty factions go head-to-head. Transformers took the world by storm shortly after their debut, and these previously uncollected stories were a vital part of that takeover!

The final volume of Transformers: The Manga is here! This deluxe volume collects three classic stories and a beautiful art gallery. “Victory” is the tale of the legendary battle between Starsaber and Deszaras. In “Zone,” the Nine Great Generals run wild. And in “The Battle Stars,” Super Megatron attempts to feed on planet Earth, but Optimus Prime stands in his way!

I purchased the first two, and #3 should hopefully be delivered tomorrow. The others were nice fillers to series I've already seen , but it is this 3rd volume I've been anticipating the most. I'm just a little disappointed Operation Combination was not included.
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

Surprisingly, the story pages for Zone, Battlestars, and Operation Combination are all included in this volume, but only the artwork without any of the toy catalog parts.

Though, the inclusion of the story pages in this volume makes me wish that they had done the same with the previous volumes. FSRLTF, 2010, The Headmasters, and Masterforce all had story pages too, and some of which aren't even available to find online (particularly those for The Headmasters, Masterforce, and even Victory).

ok cool, that's good to know, even though they are only story pages, I'm glad they were all included.

It would have been nice to get the story pages for the older series as well, not sure why they were left out, maybe Viz thought they were redundant since those series had actual Manga stories? How different are the content of the story pages for FSRLTF, 2010, The Headmasters, and Masterforce vs Their respective Manga ?

Anyway, this is my chance to, in my head cannon, finally see how the original series ends. It may be no more satisfying than Rebirth (it may n fact be less so...), but at least it went on longer ;) .

Also, does anyone ever wonder what sort of weird alternate reality would exist if DIC had picked up the animation license for Transformers as well as GI Joe? I mean, 1989 was pretty much just Micromasters, and 1990 was Action Masters, but one would think/hope that Hasbro would have come up with different/better concepts with animation to support it (even as bad as DIC was in the early 90's heh...) perhaps even just importing some of the Japanese characters.

The story pages for FSRLTF were individual small stories that did their own thing at first, but then eventually decided to build up to and tie into Scramble City by featuring small stories about Metroplex, Trypticon, Ultra Magnus, and toy-colors Galvatron.

The story pages for 2010 were likewise small stories, much of which devoted their time to retelling events from TFTM to get the Japanese kids up to speed on things since the movie didn't see release in Japan until 1989.

Not much is known here in the Western World about the story pages for The Headmasters, Masterforce, and Victory, but it is presumable that they too were small stories.

o.supreme wrote:Anyway, this is my chance to, in my head cannon, finally see how the original series ends. It may be no more satisfying than Rebirth (it may n fact be less so...), but at least it went on longer ;) .
Generation 2's story pages have a more finite conclusion, ending with a one-on-one fight between Optimus and Megatron.

But then of course, 2000s fiction produced by e-HOBBY, the Legends manga, and now the current Selects manga have all continued the Japanese G1 story into years as late as 2050.

Has there been any word on the e-Hobby, Legends manga, etc., being translated/collected and printed?
