Thanks to an updated listing on Amazon.com, we now have the cover art for Phase 2, Vol. 7 of the IDW Collection. This collection contains issues 28-34 of both Transformers: Robots in Disguise and Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye. Due to be released on March 27, 2018 in hardback form, the cover features Megatron in the same art style as the previous Phase 2 collections; appropriate, as these are the issues where Autobot Megatron joins the Lost Light! Will you be pre-ordering this volume? Let us know in the Energon Pub Forums!

Odd it uses one of his during-war designs rather than the one he took on the Lost Light without juxtaposition.

Called it.

Also, can anyone confirm whether these are a good deal or not? I think they are, considering they're hardcover, but I can't tell.

I was interested in picking some of these up to read through since I got tired of buying the individual series and not knowing where and when different miniseries took place, so I thought this would be a good way to get items in order and catch up, but then I noticed vol two of both phase 1 and phase 2 seems to be out of print.

As for phase 1, try the compendium, which collects phase 1 volumes 1 and 2, published in 2016.
With phase 2, have you tried Amazon? It usually tells me more are on the way with IDW stuff (can't check now).

Phase 2 vol 2 on Amazon, and now that I looked again, they want $100 Plus.

I see... I would get the trade paperbacks for RiD and MTMTE, and get the Spotlights (And Autocracy) on ComiXology or another digital site. I did something similar with Furman's work. If you can, wait for the sales on comiXology, as they seem to occur fairly frequently.
That's what I would do.

I'm not a big fan of digital comics, since it hurts my eyes after a short time when I read them. I still like physical copies. I mean ultimately its not going to bother me if I don't get to read the stuff,I've gone years without with only a couple of times I've questioned what somethign was about because it was a comic only thing.

Some time ago I completed 'Phase One' of the HC Collection. It started off so well with Simon Furman's -Ations, Spotlights, Megatron: Origin etc and then the quality began to drop. First with McCarthy and later the all time low of Costa (Although Space Opera was a welcome highlight there).

Now as I read exclusively through trades, I accept I am often months to years behind. I'm patient, it doesn't bother me. That said the general chatter I heard around the (then) RiD and MTMTE did concern me.
I've never been a fan of retcons and given how thorough Furman had been in laying down the foundations of the IDWverse, what I was hearing especially with characterisation, had me concerned. Long dead now, but I really liked the idea of Ultra Magnus as "Judge Dredd in Space".

So I bit the bullet and bought Phase Two vol.1, to continue the collection. Although the renumbering does mess with the prior aesthetic of the other books.. But I digress. So after reading that volume, my concerns were justified. So far removed from expectation it wasn't even funny. I actually sold the book on and cut my loses with 'Phase One' vol.8 and left IDWverse behind.
Better to read Origin, the original Spotlights etc than forcing regressive humanising traits on previously established characters and lore.

And that's why for many years, I once more quit Transformers. The second time since Beast Machines ended.

A little late but try Book Depository. They are who I bought the IDW Collection from and more often than not the prices are more reasonable than Amazon.

Out this month from IDW Publishing is the seventh volume in the hardcover IDW Collection of Transformers comics (in the branch known as Phase 2) as we have reached More Than Meets the Eye and Robots in Disguise 28 to 34, after the events of Dark Cybertron and the beginning of Dawn of the Autobots. Check it out below!

[quote]Transformers: IDW Collection Phase Two, Vol. 7
James Roberts, John Barber (w) • Alex Milne, Andrew Griffith, Atilio Rojo (a) • Marcelo Matere (c)
MEGATRON assumes control of the quest to find the Knights of Cybertron—a quest that has never before been so urgent, so personal, and so likely to end in tears. But the crew of the Lost Light isn't so eager to follow his orders and, as is always the case, past decisions will come back to haunt them. Plus, The AUTOBOTS return to Earth—with OPTIMUS PRIME in command! But what is bringing them back—and what terrifying secret do the humans hold? And GALVATRON is on Earth as well, with a plan to reshape it as he once did with Cybertron. A bold new era begins here! Collects issues #28–34 of More Than Meets The Eye and #28–34 of Robots In Disguise.
HC • FC • $49.99 • 340 pages • 7” x 11” • ISBN: 978-1-68405-149-6

Does anyone else think that a red eyed scowling evil looking Megatron is not really appropriate during a time that Megatron is reformed and trying to gain redemption? But still looking forward to this, the IDW continuity was on it's way toward Dark Cybertron by the time I jumped on so these books are a good way to collect large swaths of the story at once.

What is going on with Megatron's head? Did a bird poop on him? Is that why he is so angry?

Fellow Seibertronian Grimlocktimus has dropped us a note regarding a new pre-order listing on online retailerAmazon.com, for another IDW Publishing Transformers Phase Two Collection volume, due in December 2018.

The book, which currently features no cover art, but expect Marcelo Matere or Sara Pitre Durocher to provide one in the near future, will include More Than Meets the Eye 35-40, Robots in Disguise 35-38, the one-shot Punishment, and the Drift mini-series Empire of Stone. Currently priced at $49.99, you can place an order here!

[quote]Presenting IDW's Transformers comics in recommended reading order, including one-shots, crossovers, and event series! It's everything a beginner could need, everything a diehard could want.

Rodimus leads a team of Autobots into Cybertron's past, pursuing the Decepticon double-agent Brainstorm who plans on killing Orion Pax before he can become Optimus Prime. Meanwhile, on Earth, Prowl is left in command gathering his allies, the Constructicons, to search for the one human he holds a grudge against, Spike Witwicky. Then, Drift returns! After leaving the Autobots in disgrace, he's now alone, on a mission to clean up the darkest depths of the galaxy.

Collects Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye issues #35-40, Transformers: Robots in Disguise issues #35-38, Transformers: Punishment, and Transformers: Drift - Empire of Stone.[/quote]

So... I was going to get the Dinobot, Drift, and Windblade TPB’s instead of these last three (already have Dark Cybertron from way back when I tried IDW the first time), but I’m not entirely sure. Does anyone that’s read these comics have any thoughts or advice?

If your plan is to have a nice, uniform display, the IDW Collection are great volumes for that sort of thing. I'm more of a trade paperback reader, so would personally recommend the TPBs instead.

By those three you mention, do you mean the collected works for each of those characters? If not, there are recent TPB collections that include pretty much all recent stories about all three (and again, I think that's what you're referring to!).

Yeah, I was referring to the recent/upcoming TPBs. Essentially, I’ve been collecting these big hardcover collections, but I’m considering switching formats to get more of what I like. My question is if there are any good stories in the ongoings that I might like that would make it easier to just continue with the hardcovers.

I know that you’re not really gonna know exactly what I like, but I tend to be on the same boat as the rest of the fandom, if anyone has advice.

Looking into my somewhat faulty crystal ball, I expect the Phase 2, Volume 9 hardcover to be Combiner Wars and Sins of the Wreckers, probably with Redemption and the Windblade II #5-7 issues in there as well. If you've been keeping up through Phase 2, vol 7 (may have been mentioned, I was lazy and didn't click back) I don't see reason to get the other character volumes since most of their material is covered at that point - except for one big reason: Time. Probably a year or a bit longer before Vol 9 comes out.

Okay, so the thing is that I haven’t gotten 6 and 7 yet. I already have Dark Cybertron from a while back, so 6 would only be new with Windblade and 7 seems to be story arcs I don’t really care about too much. I also have collected only parts of phase 1 (namely Furman’s stuff, Last Stand, and Chaos) through different mediums, so this wouldn’t throw things off too much. It’s really all about this: Does Dark Cybertron shake up the ongoings too much, and do I need to read them to understand the Redemption stories and Windblade mini-series?
