5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic trip down memory chip lane!, 14 Oct. 2011

This review is from: Transformers Classics UK Volume 1 (Paperback)
Having being a fan since issue 3 of the UK Transformers comic (it would have been since #1 but I couldn't find it anywhere!) I ordered this for nostalgia more than anything. I still have most of the original print run but they are getting worse for wear these days. This is a pretty amazing collection offering a plethora of extra material along side the reprinted stories. From Page 3 with the reprint of the very first page from the first Transformers annual, you know you are in for a special ride.

Following the foreword by James Roberts there are 16 pages of information regarding the TFUK comics, from pictures of the 2 page calendars they ran every month, the posters, free gifts and even the legendary letters page. From there it's to the stories proper. Each story is preceded by several pages of the covers as well as text bringing the reader up to pace on what's happened, why and how it fits in to the timeline. The stories are presented mostly in colour although there are the occasional black and white pages, but they are few and far between. Once the main stories are complete you are presented the original 1986 annual! The comic and prose stories! Fantatsic! There's then a few old adverts from the comics and a few "Interface Fact Files" to top it off.

Overall, I am well impressed by the thought put into this collection. The quality of the reproduction is as good as you could expect for its age and is printed on heavy quality matt paper. This is one for fans, regardless of whether you were there at the beginning or not.
