YES! Shockwave survived! Awesome! Looks weird without ears, though...

And that MTMTE cover with Overlord owning Magnus just brings a smile to my face.

That's a really good design for RiD Megatron.

Wow, Bubmblebee looks really good in that art work. The G1 head design works well with his "grown-up" look.

I like his second cover the best.

I'm guessing the Fall of Cybertron--Spotlight wouldn't be included in any TPB with the main Fall of Cybertron comic, would it?
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Shiznit you're right. Man the foreshadowing, MTME is so good.

What a menacing cover for MTME. I can't wait till March.

RID looks neat too, Megs is back in armor, looks like he escaped. And is Bee trying to make a peace sign?
Decepticons forever!

Any chance that MTMTE will be combining all three volumes into a book? I am dying to read the series but would love to purchase them all as a hardcover.
