Transformers' Most Collectible Comic Book of All Time? 0

Share
IDW Limited announced today that they'll be releasing a deluxe edition Transformers hardcover not entirely unlike the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hardcover that kicked off the imprint earlier this year.

Transformers: The IDW Collection Volume 1 will be available in January. You can pre-order your copy now by clicking on that link.

As with most of the IDW Limited series, they've gone the Johnnie Walker route of having an entry-level "Red Label" version, a more upscale "Black Label" version and a holy-crap-that's-expensive-will-you-at-least-throw-in-a-sandwich-with-that? "Blue Label" version. The Red Label version is $125, limited to 275 copies and features a nice presentation, but not quite as many bells and whistles as the higher-end models.

Transformers: The IDW Collection Volume 1 also comes with three different Black Label editions featuring art by different creators, so there are even more options than usual.

You can check out the details below, including trailers for each version.
