IDW released two Classic Transformers Volumes a year or so ago but it looks like they've fallen out of print already.

Way to capitalize on the movie, IDW. :?

EDIT: Well, it looks like you can still pick up Volume 2... just not the first one.

Hasbro should have left the reproduction rights to those with Marvel. They would have kept that stuff in print, especially when the interest is high for the movies.

yeah, cause Marvel is so good, historically (I will admit they have been doing a better job in the last year, now if we can get them to use a numbering system that makes sense), at keeping things in print. That is why there are all kinds of Marvel Trades that sell for stupid amounts of money on ebay, when the issues are plentiful and cheap.

Yeah, but none of that stuff has a movie tie-in to promote. Something like Transformers that could be a consistent seller while there is a movie coming out every 2-3 years would stay in print. I'm talking mostly about the bookstore market here rather than the direct market of course.

hey, that shit sells here too. In fact until the first movie came out we kept a full run of the Titan runs on the shelf, then that stuff became impossible to find or reorder.

I'm always going to regret not completing the Titan runs. I'm about three books short and number nine is impossibly expensive. :(

Titan must have happened between 2002 and 2005. I've never even heard of that company. :?

Shaggy is Casey Kasem...
Scooby Doo bestiality porn...
There was a publisher called Titan...

This week's thread is like kindergarten. I'm learning all kinds of shit.

IIRC, Cliffjumper got blown to shit by Megatron in the animated movie.

That's about all the exposure I have to him.
