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.

Their sister company, Titan Magazines, is currently publishing a Transformers title based on the 2007 film.

Note: These were the last UK stories to be solicited as Titan reprints. It was claimed that if they were successful they would finance future colour releases. Obviously this did not pan out. What is frustrating is that some stories (notably The Big Shutdown! and the Survivors saga), included within these volumes in black and white, had previously been reprinted within the original UK comics in colour.
