Damn, all that stuff just in May? I am most pleased, yeeeessssss. Definately can't wait for the Megatron Origin story as well as "The Ark" & the Don Premiere Artwork book. That & the Best of Prime/Megatron. Not really hyped up on WWI Vol. 2 since I already picked up every issue of The Dark Ages.

-_- As good as it all may sound, I just wish IDW wouldn't put out so much so quickly, considering how some of the items aren't cheap.

I have to admit, I'm looking forward to the Megatron origin also.

Oh, nice. The Megatron origin is not written by Furman. I thought it would be and was gonna pass. I'll definitely pick this up now. Also, it's got Milne for art. He's pretty good. I am quite happy about all this.

Reprint city!! IDW must be taking advice from Hasbro. I'm also excited about the Origins book and The Ark book could be interesting.
