I have to admit this will probably be in the lesser half of the UK books for me, but it's still great.

This volume starts off with its best stories, The Icarus Theory & Dinobot Hunt. As the introductory text points out, the Icarus Theory has some nice references to the Marvel Universe (Roxxon Oil & the Daily Bugle), and sets up Furman's most epic story yet, Dinobot Hunt. It was awesome seeing seldom used characters like Windcharger get a decent spotlight. We then go on to a group of stories that I'm sorry to say, are most likely my least favorite of the color stories (apart from the Christmas ones); Robot Buster, Devastation Derby & Second Generation. Don't get me wrong they are pretty good, just not favorites. My least favorite part was how Sparkplug turned to the Autobots for help & then treated them like he did before. I thought he was maybe going to start liking them. Still, considering the conditions Furman had to work with its quite remarkable he managed to churn out such a decent story. But then it's back to quality stories with the second best story in this volume, In The National Interest. I have to admit it's a great story, but to be honest I didn't like the ending. I know it had to be that way for the sake of keeping the continuity of the US series, but it was still a bit of a downer. To make up for that all of the stories in the Annual are good this time, especially Victory. The text stories were also a lot more interesting than the ones in the last volume, especially State Games. Though I did find Optimus Prime's use in the story to be a bit odd, but I can always pretend it's someone else.

So like I said this wasn't as good as the first volume but it was still good. But next volume, we'll witness the beginning of what is for me (& many others I'm sure) the peak of the UK comic, & it will last until volume 6 at least!

While the Transformers US stories in the 80s are better read by fans of the time or hardcore younger fans, the UK storyline cna be read by anyone!!
You do not need to be a Transformers fan to appreciate the brilliant storyline (most written by now famous author Simon Furman), or the truly gorgeous art of these British products.
Even as the comics switched to digital coloring in this volume (let's not forget the use of watercolours in some of their earlier stories), they still managed a brilliancy of colours and a quality that never deplenished.
Add to that all the explicative pages that give the hardcore fan scrumptious behind the scenes tidbits or the novice a great explication of the Transformers lore and culture.
A great sci-fi saga to newcomers, a perfect gem to fans.
