Transformers: Classics UK volume 3 covers perhaps the greatest period of stories in the entirety of the long UK series, and arguably the entire history of Transformers comic books.

Included in this volume are the following stories:

'Target 2006': During the events of Transformers the Movie, the Decepticons Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge travel back to Earth 1986 in order to create a weapon capible of destroying the planet-eating Unicron in the future. The appearence of Galvatron and his cronies results in the disappearence of Optimus Prime. On Cybertron 1986, Autobot resistance leader Emirate Xxaron dispatches Ultra Magnus to investigate Primes mysterious disappearence. Meanwhile the future Autobots Hotrod, Kup and Blurr travel to the past to stop Galvatron.

'Prey': After the events of Target 2006, during which the Autobots were forced to team up with one of their greaest enemies, the returned Optimus Prime is concerned that his fellow Autobots are incapible of surviving without his leadership, therefore he divises a cunning plan to force them to consider how they would continue without him. Unfortunately the plan goes less than smoothly when Prime finds himself pursued by the Decepticons ultimate hunters - the Predacons!

'The Harder they Die/Distant Thunder/Under Fire': Prime finds himself transported to Cybertron, where he is hunted by the Autobots elite commando unit the Wreckers as a suspected Decepticon double-agent. Whilst helping the injured Autobot Outback, Prime also reveals exactly where he disappeared to during Target 2006.

'The Gift': In this Christmas special, long time ally to the Autobots Buster Witwicky departs wisdom to crisis-stricken Jetfire about what it means to be born on Earth.

Here's where TFUK hits its stride

Two words

Target 2006

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

This is probably the strongest collection so far and further underlines Simon Furman's credentials
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!!!

i've downloaded and now returned this item twice. The kindle file downloads about 1/4 of the volume and gives up. Amazon have failed to fix the fault and still seem to have the item for sale on the site. I went through endless discussions with the customer service people who continually blame my kit.... given ive tried it repeatedly on more than one device logic would suggest the problem continues to be with the product. No hassle on finally returning, its just disappointing this continues to be so flawed as the previous titles work perfectly.

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.

Ok,first, the book itself is great. While it lasts. My issue is with the kindle download. I have downloaded the title on 3 different devices, and like the other reviewers I only get 112 pages of a 300+ page book.

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.
