Much like for he IDW Publishing Transformers comics (discussion thread here), we also finally have news of a Japanese translation of the original Marvel series, to be released in Japan via HeroX.

The news so far, as announced on Twitter, will see the full US Marvel Transformers comics series, starting from February 23rd, 2018 for 2,560 yen (USD $23) and will include original Japanese commentaries plus a Marvel UK cover gallery, and some fan content, with the plan to release the full run depending on sales and interest. Like for the IDW material, these releases will also feature new cover art from Japanese creators, revealed through their Twitter account, so stay tuned for more!

Off topic, but I honestly prefer the Marvel Comics over the cartoon and even IDW! Also, Iwould love to see a lot more hhomages to the old covers; I know we got some previously existing, but I'd be more interested in seeing other franchises homage covers like the first issue, The New Order, and War Without End.

First off, I'd rather see they release a translation of the Takara Comics here in a nice collection or two, but I know that wont happen.

I also preferred the old Marvel Comics compaired to the DW or IDW stuff. I still love the G1 Cartoon.

I was excited when IDW went to release a continuation of the old Marvel series, until I saw it. IT didn't really start with where the old series left off, and it seemed they mostly wanted to toss their own creations into that Universe. It was so disappointing.

It might be a Japanese translation of the most recent reprints from IDW, as the Tweet says that the title of this series is "Transformers Classics".
