5.0 out of 5 stars More than meets the eye! Dec 30 2005
By Vernon Clark Mayo - Published on Amazon.com
I waited to read the transformer books because i just knew that like so many of my favorite books and tv shows and other childhood memories, it would not be as good as it once was..but it is every bit as good as i remember.

I only had a few of them as a child but i remember the toys, the cartoon and the few issues of this book i once had, i was amazed how well the writing held up, oh sure it's very much of it's era, and you may laugh at the fashion, slang and the pop culture of the time, but i lived through it, i love it and i think you will too.

the books are well put together, the whole series is reprinted in 14 volumes, i would advise collecting 1-4 before reading this one, it forms an epic story with anazing characters, the art is top of the line and they did a fantastic job restoring the colors from the original printsw, they didn't just dslap these together, they also include original covers and forwards and a page to catch you up on current events if this is your first book or if it's been a while since you read the last book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Some of the Better... One of the Worst Nov. 10 2007
By Luke K. Walsh - Published on Amazon.com
This collection of Marvel Comics' 1980s Transformers series begins with one of the worst Transformers stories ever published, issue #25, "Gone But Not Forgotten!" The less said about this tale of Shockwave manuvering to overthrow a suddenly quite insane Megatron the better. Just junk. The following issue introduces the fan non-favorite, The Mechanic, who makes a return appearance in issue #28. A pity, as one of the better stories of the period, #27's "King of the Hill!", is sandwiched in-between these issues. However, the character growth of Grimlock in this story of the Dinobots verses Trypticon is completely tossed out in subsequent issues, starting with the very next one. The two-parter which concludes this volume, introducing the Decepticon triple-changers, the Throttlebots, and the Transformers plague known as Scraplets, is actually a pretty good tale. But, while the Marvel US series would eventually reach new heights with the arrival of UK writer Simon Furman, and later artists Geoff Senior, Andy Wildman, and Stephen Baskerville, this volume (along with the 24th issue, reprinted in volume 4), signals the beginning of a severe decline in this series, which would continue, and worsen, for a good thirty issues. The stories in this volume are of some interest, particularly the better issues, but the low quality of the worst of them prevents me from giving a rating higher than two (possibly two and a half) stars to this collection.
