5.0 out of 5 stars Great Armada Comic Collection April 7 2011
By T. Zhuang - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
While I didn't buy my copy from Amazon, this is an awesome collection of the Armada comic series, all packed into one nice, sturdy volume.

The story is drastically different from the cartoon, but I find myself liking both the art and story. You really can't go wrong with this series. While the humans do take up a few pages that could've been used for giant robot battles, we'll just say it was for plot development. The first two chapters also include some useful insights to the Mini-Con's past history and what Cybertron was like before they all came to Earth. However, once it hits the later chapters, like the Worlds Collide ark, things seem more rushed, although there is much more robot action and plenty of G1 homages for you hardcore fans out there. The overall story is brilliant, but toward the end they seemed to have rushed to include Unicron. Another slight gripe is that Unicron was never actually shown in robot mode. (This was probably due to the rushed production when it came out.) Also, for you purists out there, WATCH OUT. The dialouge on page 384 is completely incorrect; it's replaced by the dialouge on page 389. This is a minor annoyance, and most readers can do without it, but if you're looking for absolute profection, consider this a warning.

The actual book is nice and thick. It feels sturdy, and everything is printed on nice, high-quality gloss paper. The cover is also pleasingly neat and uncomlicated. That's not to say it's perfect, though. First off, be really careful when handling this book. I would never really call a book "delicate", but I think it applies here. I had one of my pages fall out because the binding became a little loose. (This was actually easily remedied by gluing it back in; you can't even spot a difference!) There are no extras to speak of, other than a small piece of artwork on the last page.

Overall, this is a beautiful collection of the Armada series's comics, which are greatly underappriciated. It certainly has its flaws, just like any other book, but they're all rather minor and can be easily overlooked if you handle it with care.
5.0 out of 5 stars A good read! Dec 21 2012

The book itself is in great condition. The artwork is really good and the story is enjoyable. It is quite a bit different from the cartoon, so it gives you a different take on the story. If you like transformers then you should read this!
4.0 out of 5 stars Transformers Armada - The Comic Oct. 4 2011
By M. Slack - Published on Amazon.com

Transformers Armada by Dreamwave Comics, written by Chris Sarracini and (mostly) Simon Furman. Based in premise and design on the (horrible) cartoon of the same name, with a very different plot. At the time, Furman was doing other Transformers books for Dreamwave, and comparing this series to the other two he was doing ("War Within" and their G1 reboot/continuation), this seems very kid-friendly. I was in elementary at the time this came out, and having only recently gotten into Transformers, I can say that, had I been reading this series at the time of its publication, I would have loved it. If you have a child who likes the new movies, this will be a good book for them. If you're an adult who likes Transformers, check this out, you'll enjoy it.

This series ran for 18 issues (all in this release), along with a "preview" (also in this release), and an issue released on Free Comic Book Day after issue #5 (NOT included in this release). As the cartoon led into the sequel cartoon "Energon," so too did the Armada comic become re-named to Energon starting at issue #19, which then ran until #30. Sadly, after that, Dreamwave went bankrupt, IDW later getting rights to their TF titles, and putting out this great reprint.

4.0 out of 5 stars My first Omnibus, and I couldn't be happier! Oct. 11 2011
By nick - Published on Amazon.com

I gotta say I wasnt sure about buying this, mostly because of the fact that it was a "Bargan" but I just received it today and I love it! The cover is clean the back had a few stickers but they came off easly enough. None of the pages were torn. The one thing that I was mad about, but also kind of happy about is that this is not in fact the end of the story, the story continues in "Transformers:Energon Vol. 1" yes this is the end of "Armada" so if this is all your looking for then great, but I want to know what happens next. IDK if there is a vol. 2, amazon just has the one, if any one knows please let me know! Also I was flipping through the book and one of the transformers (Not sure which one...yet :-D) Says, "Chaos is comming." and Chaos is bold faced, I wounder if this has something to do with the currnet story line IDW is doing? So in conclusion if your like me and have never bought an Omnibus this is a good start and $10.00 is not bad since the back says it was $24.99! I've already ordered another Omnibus: Tranformers: Beast Wars Ominbus. Hope this helps anyone interested! See ya! :-)

Plays up the human kiddy companions at first but develops into some decent robot destruction.
