In 2001, Titan Books acquired the rights to reprints of Marvel Comics' U.S. Transformers run, publishing the
complete near-complete American series in several volumes of trade paperbacks and hardcovers. They have also released much of the Marvel UK material.
Collects: Marvel Transformers U.S. #31–32, #35–37 (UK #128, 129, 139–144, 154, 155)
ISBN 1-84023-845-3 (hardcover)
Omits: Marvel US #33–34 — Color reprint of Marvel UK's "Man of Iron!", not part of the ongoing storyline. This story isn't among the collected UK material either. Bizarre.
Transformers: Maximum Force
Collects: Marvel Transformers U.S. #40–42, #44–45 (UK #162, 163, 174–179, 190, 191)
ISBN 1-84023-970-0 (hardcover)
Omits: Marvel U.S. #43 — Adaptation of "The Big Broadcast of 2006!", not part of the ongoing storyline. This story was omitted from the Space Pirates! collection too, even though it includes the opening and closing sequences added to the UK printing to tie in with their own post-movie stories. Bizarre.
The titles listed after this point, written by Titan affiliate Simon Furman, were the first Transformers collections printed.
Transformers: Dark Designs
Collects: Marvel Transformers: Generation 2 #1–6 (UK #3–5)
ISBN 1-84023-527-6 (hardcover)
Omits: Marvel Transformers: Generation 2 #0 — Promotional issue taking place prior to #1, "Ghosts" was not part of the ongoing storyline. This story was also re-printed as a backup story in Transformers: Generation 2 #2. It is not collected elsewhere.
These compilations are shown in chronological order (based on the first issue, note that many include stories published years after the title arc), the order in which Titan published these is as follows: Target: 2006, Fallen Angel, Legacy of Unicron, Space Pirates, Time Wars, City of Fear, Dinobot Hunt, Prey, Second Generation.

Transformers Adventures: (Vol. 1)
Collects: Titan Transformers UK #1–?
This has not been released yet so the exact contents are unknown.
- G.I. Joe and the Transformers #1–4 — Marvel U.S.'s 1986 crossover. This story did not take place in the UK continuity — at least not before the changes wrought by Time Wars.
- Transformers Universe #1–4 — Marvel's character profiles.
- Transformers Universe (various) — Character profiles printed as backups throughout the Marvel U.S. run.
- "Man of Iron!", "The Enemy Within!", "Raiders of the Last Ark", "Decepticon Dam-Busters!", "The Wrath of Guardian!"/"The Wrath of Grimlock!", "Christmas Breaker!", "Crisis of Command!", "And There Shall Come...A Leader!", "Plague of the Insecticons", "To a Power Unknown!", "Ancient Relics!", "Peace" and "Destiny of the Dinobots!". It seems unlikely at this point that they will be reprinted, although a few of these were originally scheduled to be included in The Best of Simon Furman.
