After Devastation, it kinda fills in the gaps with Spotlights that ran during the main story.

Thanks place after the first 3 minis and ends the whole saga that started with the first issue. Maximum dionbots happens during mini 3 I think or shortly after all the autobots leave for space. All Hail Megatron takes place a year after the events of Revelations, I think.

So Revelations is after all of the Spotlights but before All Hail Megatron?

This is a little old now but IDW has started to rerelease Dreamwave's More Than Meets The Eye in TPB. I've already been through the Dreamwave version so nothing new, however some of you that are only new to the TF Comic world or collecting all the IDW might like to take a look. Volume 1 is out, and volume 2 isn't to far away.

And though issue #1 picks up on story strands laid in various Spotlights and Escalation/Devastation, this one kicks off from the ground level, bringing the five Dinobots—last seen together way back in Spotlight Shockwave—back together again in a raging battle-filled storyline that pulls no punches. Featuring Nick Roche’s amazing art and Josh Burcham’s scintillating colours, Maximum Dinobots is just a must-have. We confidently predict a roaring success!

OK here's how it flows story wise.

Transformers: Infiltration
Transformers: Stormbringer
Transformers: Spotlight vol.1 (Shockwave, Nightbeat, Hot Rod, Sixshot & Ultra Magnus)
Transformers: Escalation
Transformers: Spotlight vol.2 (Soundwave, Kup, Galvatron, Optimus Prime & Ramjet )
Transformers: Megatron Origin
Transformers: Devastation
Transformers: Spotlight vol.3 (Blaster, Arcee, Mirage, Grimlock & Wheelie)
Transformers Spotlight Revelations: Cyclonus, Hardhead, Doubledealer & Sideswipe
Transformers: Maximum Dinobots
Transformers: All hail Megatron

Maximum Dinobots is supposed to fill in the gaps (or just some of them) between Revelations and All hail Megatron. And some spotlights are more important to the overall story line than others.

This is awesome, thanks a lot.

BUT, I thought Megatron Origin came before the War Within series and wasnt really part of the modern storyline?

I'll compare TF comics to Marvel comics. Marvels G1/G2 comics= Marvel 616. Dreamwaves G1= Marvel's M2 line. IDW's G1= Ultimate Marvel. DW's War Within and IDW's Megatron origin feature similar events but are not connected. Officially.

The War Within serries has no bearing on the modern story continuity that IDW is putting out.

War Within was from Dreamwave comics and while IDW has reprinted some of the WW stories it is not connected continuity wize.

So Megatron Origin is part of the current continiuty but The War Within is not.

Again where do you fit in the U.K stuff???

The UK material does not always fit into the U.S. universe and at time completly contradicts each other.

Gold Bugs origin story for example.It the U.S. TF comics by Marvel it was GI Joe with the help of the Autobot Ratchet that turned Bumblebee into Gold Bug.

But in the UK TF continuity it was a time traveling Wrec Gar that changed Bumblebee into Gold Bug.

And there are plenty of examples of the UK TF universe not being able to fit into the US TF universe.

G1 is G1, simple as that. If the UK has different stories and origins that's fine.

Strange the way WW vol.1 seems to follow on directly from Megatronrigin though, especially with Sentinal Prime being killed and Optimus being chosen to follow him.

True but there are some contradictions as well.

In WW the war had been going on for some time before Sentinel was beaten but in Megatrons origin Sentinel was beaten at the beginning of the war.

And there are a great number of other contradictions that would be apparent if WW was connected to the the other IDW stories.

So I just read up on this and the reason Megatron Origin seems to fit with War Within is because it was originally supposed too. As the basic story was laid out during the end of Dreamwave. Then retooled to fit into IDW's fiction.

Back when IDW said they would reprint Dreamwave there was an idea floating around about continuing the War Within series, this is where the Megatron Origins spawned, however I think it was after they decided not to continue with WW. A shame really, WW was a good read and it would have been great for IDW to continue on with it, the potential for some great stories is still there, plus they could have also incorperated Spotlights that took place during WW that had some effect on the events of the G1 "tion" saga's.

Megatron Origin does seem to be in continuity with WW in many ways, Sentinal Prime not holding The Matrix being the main one for me. Who knows, maybe it is meant to be in continuity but it also changed a few things to fit the new story, sort of like a re-boot like many of the CB movies we are getting today.

I start my week of nights tonight @ work, so I'm gonna read all of Reign Of Starscream. I know it's late, but I just haven't had time.

**EDIT**

Read it last night. Thought it was ok, nothing amazing. I was quite burnt out by the end of it, felt it was one issue too long. Still looking forward to DESTINY though!
