I've got one coming in the post from eBay, though I was in two minds about it, as I've got the complete Japanese version already, and you can tell what's going on in the story from the pictures alone. So I'm not sure the translation will add much beyond StarDub-style dodgy dialogue.
I got mine on the 9th from Amazon too. I love it. Never having read any of the Manga I'm delighted to be able to do so in my native language.
I'm loving how different it all was, starting in 1985 they just had both years of toys show up at the same time. But, as warned, the stories are light, episodic fluff.
The art is GORGEOUS, and the production quality of the book is great. Very much looking forward to having the complete set of (currently) three.
Volumes 2 & 3 were pre-ordered as soon as they hit Amazon but in the meantime I'm now hunting down scans of more recent Manga, pack-in fiction and the like. Have found a fair bit of stuff which is keeping me happy, fleshing out parts of the TF Multiverse I never knew existed.
TF Archive seems to be suffering some link-failure neglect but if anyone has any links to translated material, of any era, from any other quarter I'd really appreciate it.
Okay, what can I say. One of my irritating habits is checking prices and dates on items on my wishlists on a daily basis because occasionally you can catch a freak price fluctuation. On my wishlist vol 2 has had June 11th under it for weeks. I know this because I thought about preordering it last time I got paid but decided I could do it in June and it come out of this month's pay instead of last. I've also watched the price bounce around the £20 mark, for a while last week it was £19.84, which amused me.
Just been reading the first arc in volume one. Fantastic fun. The combiners were so short changed in the UK comic because the movie stories came up so close behind. I'd love to see much more in the scramble city timeline with Magnus commanding Metroplex.
