    The toy commercial continues in this second volume that have none of the tragically bad clunkers that volume one was saddled with, while having a really good two issue arc set on cybertron that seemed to take a lot of inspiration from the future in terminator and even some cronenbergian bodyhorror The only real problem with this volume would probably be the huge amount of characters introduced Since at this time combining robots is what Hasbro seem to have been focusing on, characters often ge The toy commercial continues in this second volume that have none of the tragically bad clunkers that volume one was saddled with, while having a really good two issue arc set on cybertron that seemed to take a lot of inspiration from the future in terminator and even some cronenbergian bodyhorror The only real problem with this volume would probably be the huge amount of characters introduced Since at this time combining robots is what Hasbro seem to have been focusing on, characters often get introduced in groups as large as five, way too many to get any sense of individual personalities

    About this time in the comics you start to hate that it is tied to the toys It really seems like every issue has yet another group of characters while you start to miss some of the older ones Where is Bumblebee Prowl Starscream That being said, some of the action gets ramped up and there is a great story that takes place on Cybertron itself Could have been a five star book though.

    The Smelting Pool and The Bridge to Nowhere, a 2 issue story 17, 18 are outstanding They make up significantly for what is otherwise a jumbled mess due to the need for Budiansky to constantly introduce new toys with progressivelywhacky plots.

    Great 80 s classic comic book series with great plots and action.

    Literally every issue there s at least one group of new robots who combine to form an 80 foot giant Whatcould you want

    I liked this series because of the combiners, but it moved too fast to just read through one after another instead of once a month like when they came out.

    Volume Two of Transformers Classics is quite a good read, but I highly recommend that you start with volume one first as it will help you keep track of everything However, this book is not perfect and I should mention a few things about that.Read on if you want spoilersThere are a few things of note I should mention There s a similar story arc that is very much like Age of Extinction, with the US Government trying to capture the Transformers and dissect them, only they do it with the help Volume Two of Transformers Classics is quite a good read, but I highly recommend that you start with volume one first as it will help you keep track of everything However, this book is not perfect and I should mention a few things about that.Read on if you want spoilersThere are a few things of note I should mention There s a similar story arc that is very much like Age of Extinction, with the US Government trying to capture the Transformers and dissect them, only they do it with the help of a mysterious woman known as Circuit Breaker, who has her own personal vendetta against the Robots Also, the amount of characters Marvel brought into this franchise now is a bit overwhelming since over the course of about five issues, they bring in most of the combiner teams like the Aerialbots, Protectobots, Stunticons, Predacons, and Combaticons Megatron, following an important event, goes totally insane for seemingly no apparent reason Finally, and this is very important, Prime s death sequence is probably the worst death that Optimus Prime has ever endured Being defeated in a video game by Megatron then blown up Seriously, I m not kidding That s how Prime dies in this comic He loses in a Tron like video game against Megatron and a human is forced to blow him up I thought his death in Revenge of the Fallen was considerablydramatic than that However, if you can get past the extremely bad death of Optimus Prime sequence and Megatron going looney tunes, this is a fantastic look into how Marvel did Transformers Can t wait to read Volume Three
