Transformers: The IDW Collection – Phase One, Volume 1

The Transformers: The IDW Collection Phase One, Volume 1, published by IDW Publishing, was the first of a series of hardcovers aiming to reprint the original IDW Transformers stories in a “suggested reading order”. New cover art (of Megatron) is provided by E. J. Su. 386 pages.

The Transformers universe is vast and full of ongoing conflict between the Autobots and Decepticons. A war that stretches across the galaxy and throughout time. These datatracks, from IDW’s timeline of events, recorded for further study, re-present the saga as it unfolded. From Cybertron to Earth, this is the story of the Transformers. The placement of Nightbeat‘s Spotlight issue is odd, as it takes place after Optimus Prime has arrived at (or at least is made aware of) Earth, as he did (and was) at the conclusions of Infiltration and Stormbringer. The “Red Label” special edition was released on June 19, 2013.

Transformers: The IDW Collection – Phase One, Volume 1 contains:

  • Series introduction by Andy Schmidt;
  • Transformers: Megatron Origin #1-4;
  • Transformers: Spotlight – Blurr;
  • Transformers: Spotlight – Cliffjumper;
  • Transformers: Spotlight – Shockwave;

Transformers: The IDW Collection – Phase One, Volume 2

The Transformers: The IDW Collection Phase One, Volume 2, published by IDW Publishing, was the second ina series of hardcovers aiming to reprint the original IDW Transformers stories in a “suggested reading order”. New cover art (of Optimus Prime) is provided by E. J. Su. 372 pages.

This volume includes the Transformers series Stormbringer and Escalation, as well as Spotlights – Sixshot, Ramjet, Ultra Magnus, Kup, Mirage, and Optimus Prime. Like in Volume 1, the Spotlight placements aren’t 100% ideal. Ramjet‘s story overlaps segments of Escalation, so placing it right after that arc may have been preferable. Perhaps even more out of place is Ultra Magnus‘s Spotlight, which takes place approximately just before Escalation #1, as in it Optimus Prime is seen receiving the very same transmission Magnus sent in the former. The “Red Label” special edition was released on November 13, 2013.

Transformers: The IDW Collection – Phase One, Volume 2 contains:

  • Transformers: Stormbringer #1-4;
  • Transformers: Escalation #1-6;
  • Transformers: Spotlight – Sixshot;
