    Vol 85 probably won’t have Prime #25 as that should be in Vol 85 with the Unicron miniseries and maybe Lost Light #25 too. Volumes 85 to 88 should complete both Optimus Prime, Lost Light and Unicron.

    Vol 91 should complete G2. The other seven volumes though? I wonder if they’d include the Marvel TF Universe plus the profiles from backup strips, and if they’ll include the DW MTMTE profile books. Maybe they’ll stretch the definition of G1 to include the Beast Wars mini-series and profile books (those do have G1 characters in them and it’s the same universe).

    I hope that they will include the otfcc universe and transformer club comics. Few people outside of hardcore fans will have seen the material and it was some of Simon's best work. Unlike the dreamwave content where it's unknown if writers artists got paid these should be out of legal limbo now.
    On the lookout for MISB Headmaster Highbrow, Takara or Hasbro. I'm sure I could make you a sweet deal!

    TFwiki have updated their page with guesses on the remaining issues not yet released... but I'm not sure if the final three volumes would be touching on the new Transformers series, as it would be odd to start a new era and then just stop mid-series. I'm not sure what else could be in those three volumes, as there are still some older items not covered, but then, it is only 3 volumes, so it won't be enough to cover all of 3H's and FunPub's comics.
    The final four volumes will be the last four to be released, with the final one expected to be out in the UK on November 4th this year... and with us being 22 issues behind, we should get our final volumes around September next year.

    Time flies... All 100 volumes are now out in the UK, with the last one released November 4th.
    It now confirms the contents of the remaining volumes.

    VOL 80 - Till All Are One #12 & Annual, 2017 Annual, Requiem of the Wreckers
    -
    VOL 81 - Revolution #0-5 & three Revolution one-shots
    VOL 82 - Revolutionaries #1-8
    VOL 83 - First Strike #0-6 & two First Strike one-shots
    VOL 84 - Optimus Prime #13-17 & 2018 Annual
    VOL 85 - Optimus Prime #18-24
    VOL 86 - Lost Light #13-18
    VOL 87 - Lost Light #19-24
    VOL 88 - Unicron #0-6, Optimus Prime #25, Lost Light #25
    VOL 89 - 1986 GIJoe & TFs #1-4 & 1990s Marvel GIJoe #138-142 (the lead-in issues to Gen2 comic)
    VOL 90 - GEN-2 (1990s Marvel) #0-6 (and UK War Without End)
    VOL 91 - GEN-2 (1990s Marvel) #7-12
    VOL 92 - 1986 Movie adaptation (both Marvel and IDW versions)
    VOL 93 - Beast Wars The Gathering #1-4 & Beast Wars Sourcebook (parts)
    VOL 94 - Beast Wars The Ascending #1-4 & Beast Wars Sourcebook (parts)
    VOL 95 - Devils Due GIJoe vs TFs #1-6
    VOL 96 - Devils Due GIJoe vs TFs 2 #1-4 & GIJoe vs TFs 3 #1-2
    VOL 97 - Devils Due GIJoe vs TFs 3 #3-5 & GIJoe vs TFs 4 #1-2
    VOL 98 - Transformers #1-7
    VOL 99 - Transformers #8-14
    VOL 100 - Transformers #15-17 & Transformers Galaxies #1-4

    If they have indeed stopped at 100, I think they should have stopped at 97 if they had no other material to fill the final three volumes.
    The new Transformers series is still ongoing (currently at issue 24), and Galaxies ends at issue 12... so having both of those series touched but not completed, will be annoying, and kinda stupid (doing a long 100 volume publication, just to end it on a cliffhanger).

    Agree. They could've use Vol 97-100 to reprint Marvel's Transformers Universe (and the assorted profiles from the cancelled second series that ran as backups), the Dreamwave MTMTE guidebook series in full. Maybe all the Beast Wars Sourcebook (unclear what "parts" means).

    To be really wild they could have included those non-Marvel How to Draw and Transformers in 3D comics from the 80s. Make it really "everything" and make those very obscure books more available.

    I'd have been quite happy for Vol 100 to be a 332 page Marvel UK cover gallery. Or for all the UK strips in their original black and white format rather than the colourised versions.

    I was looking but haven't been able to find a picture showing the spines from 81-100. I hope it looks okay and not too tacked on.

    I'm surprised there aren't any photos of the completed (or final 20 volume) collection... so I've asked on tfw for a photo.
    The first one of the new 20 has Blaster's chest on it, but the art looks rougher or blurred. Hopefully the added image doesn't look too much like a separate image.

    Someone on tfw directed me to the comic's facebook page, and some people have posted up photos of their completed collection... the extra 20 volumes have Blaster, Ultra Magnus and Dirge on them.
