For a second I thought we'd be getting the actual comics from IDW, but this is still pretty awesome.

Definitely need closure.

Wasn't Energon supposed to go for 18 issues like Armada? If so, we're missing 6 issues then?

If IDW can publish a lot of Dreamwave issues, why can't they finish Energon? I realize not having a current supporting toyline is a big issue, but I for sure would buy up the remaining issues quick.

Don't get your hopes up, Hasbro/Takara won't bother with this since they can't use it to sell toys. And there might be some legal nonsense involved with DW.

Some of the writers and artists did not get paid for their work on issues that were in print when DW was having hard times including Simon. So IDW would have to pay for the work as well as work out legal issues.
IDW has printed loads of old stuff that has nothing to do with Hasbro releasing toys for example, the old Budanski G1 stories.

I would love this Energon series in Graphoic Novel form. I emailed Chris Ryall few years ago asking here is the email exchange:

looks like it will never happen.

Hi Chris,

Just wanted to ask if the legal court stuff has been sorted regarding the Old Dreamwave stuff as i see that Amazon have listed on there website, Vol 3 of Gen 1 no. 0 -5 for March 2009 release. Is this correct?

Cheers
Lee

We can print those but can't print the stuff that has never been published or finished.

Hey, Lee-

All the DW stuff that was never finished is off-limits to us--it's all in bankruptcy court until they settle up with Hasbro (which will probably never happen).

Hi Chris,

Big fan of all IDW's Transformers comics & books. Just read your Msg Board that the next spotlight will be Blaster, Thank you for this, very interesting transformer to play with.

Do have a question over the old Dreamwave Books, is anything happening with the Gen 1 Volume 3 (omens of evil) and Micromasters Stories that they Produced, and other TF comics that were never finished, does IDW have those licenses. They would be very nice to have as Graphic Novels on the shelf.


kind regards

lee (big TF fan)

All this means is that IDW can reprint...

-Generation One: Prime Directive (which they have)
-Generation One: War and Peace (which they have)
-The G1 MTMTE Series (which they have)
-The First Two War Within Minis (which they have)
-Armada (which they have)
-Energon Up to #30 (They've released a TPB containing #19-23; technically they can do one with #24-30; those issues end on a cliffhanger, but it's more or less complete.)
-Micromasters (which they haven't, though considering how poorly recieved it was, I doubt many people would complain.)

i for one would love the micromasters series in graphic novel form and the energon series up to issue 30.
