I really wish Madman had nopt released their various boxsets beforehand, or at least have said that they were going to release a set like this, as I would have waited for it.

Sorry, but I don't expect much here. I mean, season two ended in 1985. The movie takes place in 2005. The only way 20 years of backstory can be fit within 8 pages is via a timeline. Of course, I doubt he'll attempt to cover everything.

I seriously doubt it, unless it is tacked onto the end of a TPB as an extra, and the only one it would make any kind of sense with is the 1985 movie comic. In which case it would need to be tacked on to the front,as a prequel.

Im thinking it might be more of a "Decepticons attack and regather Cybertron, Autobots set up Moonbase's and Autobot City" for the first half, and then maybe a little explanation of what happened to certain bots in the 20 year gap.

My point exactly! In addition, Furman is a great writer, but I would really like to see a writer from the original series or movie tackle this (if it were a mini series, that is).

Yeah I agree. I'm pretty sure that if I buy this my wife will be seriously upset with me.
