Love the RI covers! Very much enjoy seeing Arcee looking like Arcee, and not looking like either a sociopath or an old woman! =P~

And Scorponok making a return? I am intrigued, seeing from what I had read... He died. :???: Maybe I shall check that out. :-?

But with the PRIME tie-in... I currently dislike the cover. :BOOM:

Motto: "Motive is a universal weakness."
I'm looking forward to the Orion Pax Spotlight issue, and I'm glad to see he'll be getting a more basic body. I hope this comic suggests a how and why as to how Orion's body was turned into Optimus'. It's something that has been completely ignored by the novels, the Cybertron games and the PRIME animation, and it really bugs me.

Complete Drift seems a little unnecessary. I'd be more behind it if it wasn't a hardcover. It makes it so much more expensive when you could probably get the Drift trade and Spotlight cheaply enough.

It's a straight rip off. Yet looks so much better.

And that Sgt. Peppers homage for MTMTE is fantastic. I need that cover for sure. Wouldnt be the first time that IDW did a month of variant covers all based on the same subject like music. Remember the photo cover month last year?
WANTED TO BUY

C-125:Shoki, C126:Getsui, C127:Yukikaze, C129:Seizan. MIB + unused stickers PM for details.
