Transformers the Definitive G1 collection

Comments



  • Ooh... I'll have to check out Easons for this. I'm sorely tempted but I shouldn't!




  • I have the 'draft' versions of the first 2. Expecting the real copies to arrive in the mail any day now.
    Subscribed for at least the first 6 issues + gifts (hoping bookeneds will be handy for display), and then we'll see if I have room for any more...




  • Picked up the first one in the last few days.. pretty good!! But €30 a month is fairly hefty for (2 of) the full price issues. Will have to think about it.




  • Yeah I'd probably get the IDW collected editions instead. There were still loads of issue 1 in Easons this morning which is probably a bad sign!

    I'd say the success or failure of this will depend on online subs though. People in their 30s/40s who grew up with this and the nostalgia factor. It's not really a "mass market" collection.

    For the average Eason's browser/younger fan they'd probably look at it and say "that's not Megatron!" being only familiar with the Michael Bay movies and not willing to pay €15 a pop for something they've no connection to.

  • Anyway.. on the collection itself :) I'd forgotten how varying the artwork styles were in those days, with several artists still modelling characters after their toy versions rather than the cartoon. I was never a big fan of the former style - it just looks messier to me, especially with efforts to give them human facial expressions etc




  • I've got most of the comics in my parents' loft and have them electronically too. I still kinda want this but these collections are always so much cash. Three and a half years of paying €30 a month.... I don't know.

    Yea same here.. they're in the attic at home somewhere and I have digital copies of them all too. It's a nice collection but I'm finding it hard to justify for that kinda money.
