This is where the uk comic began to use the 1986 Movie character's as the US comic wasn't using them.
Thus every few months after a run of us stories we would get our very own epic using set in the 21st century (remember this was the 80s) or and adventure set on cybertron where our minds would be blown away.
Target 2006 was the first of those epics and many more would follow all interconnected into a grander saga.
In this volume you also get the stories Pray and the first part of the Fallen Angel saga so you have value for money indeed here
Long time Transformers comic fans and fans in general will probably have heard of Target : 2006 and it has aged very well as is still worthy of all the hype surrounding it. Best Transformers story ever? Well, everyone has their opinion, but this story is considered the benchmark for all that preceded and followed it.
Having said that, this volume definetley contains some of Target : 2006's rivals to its throne! 'Prey' is another classic story where Optimus Prime's attempt to test his Autobots badly backfires and is the reference point to the following stories which climaxes in 'Resurrection'.
The only thing that could be even considered a problem in this volume is that it jumps back and forth between the time-travelling, Target : 2006/Galvatron stories and the present day Optimus Prime/Megatron/Cyberton arc and can possibly be a little confusing, barring that, this as good a UK Classics Collection as you're ever likely to get...in this possible future!!!
Its nice to see the Transformers UK stuff is remembered and I for one want them all in a digital format... part of my youth and intellectual growth (this is good stuff in here.... characters.... ideas and Senior's artwork still kicks ass). They need to release Zoids and Dragons Claws for kindle now.
Edit: I contacted Amazon regarding this issue, and they sent me an updated version of the book, with my missing 2 thirds. If you're having ths problem, I reccommend dropping Kindle support a line, and they should sort you out. I've increased the star rating to reflect this.
