Requiem of the Wreckers...where can I get it??

Post by Prowl1984 » Sun Jun 14, 2020 9:31 am

Hey all, long time no post.

So I've been chipping away at the IDWverse for a while now (barring Hasbro crossovers) and I'm drawing near to the end. However I've hit a bit of a roadblock with the final Wreckers entry in that I can't seem to get hold of a paperback copy anywhere in the UK. It's all just digital listings. Can anyone help me out?

I was going to suggest the Wreckers Saga Trade, as that's got all 3 Wreckers stories in it, but it seems to be insanely rare already. Which is funny, as it's got a printing error leaving 1 page with no dialogue balloons. The Hachette partwork might be your best bet now.

It was short-printed with the hardback coming out soon after. I think I ordered it from Australia at the time, plus a back-ordered copy from a small UK store that ultimately also turned up and went into a TFN raffle. It meant Nick couldn't get a box of them for the convention and got question after question about it. Just one of the ways the end of the IDW run got fumbled.

As suggested you might be best going after the "Definitive G1" reprint. There's a copy going on eBay right now for less than you'd pay for Requiem, listed just by title.

More recently IDW seems to have given up with normal TPBs with its new TF series -- just digital, singles and hardbacks -- which removes the usual option for latecomers finding a series and growing the audience because nobody's going to get a forty quid hardback out of casual interest.

Ah dammit. That's a shame, I saw the full saga edition for about £50, steep but may have to. Doesn't look like there'll be a reprint then?

I picked up the Ebay copy, real shame that it'll stick out like a sore thumb on my shelf but at least I can finish it. I've signed up for several stock notifications for the full saga edition so I guess I'll just have to keep an eye out! Thanks for the assist guys
