I know it's kinda expensive, but I'll be damned if I don't want to toss my money at it anyway. I love wreckers, so maybe I might spring for the Red one.

A cool thought - a tad bit too hardcore for me though xD

:shock: The blue label comes with a "team up sketch" by both Guidi and Roche =P~ . That would be awesome but unfortunately its a little steep for my liking. I'll definitely pick up the black label when they go up tomorrow.

Really nice, but I'll keep my Last Stand of the Wreckers hardback, Signed by Nick Roche.

(Also I don't need a third copy of Last Stand of the wreckers)

What about internal content, such as the prose stories, Autopedia entries, etc.?

So, no additional stories/prose than what was in the last Hardcover release? Good. I got that version and want to stay happy with it. :D

In occasion of the release for Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers, our friends over at IDW Limited have sent us a whole lot of artwork to show off, and some insight into how the exclusive lithographs were produced.

Before


IDW Limited wrote:The interesting thing about this edition is, for the Blue Label we had Guido Guidi and Nick Roche team up to draw the two-character sketches. So each guy drew one of the two characters on the sketch plate. These pieces turned out so good that we actually scanned them, then had a colorist go in and color the scans so that we could put that finished product into a hardcover portfolio to go along with the book.

So that means even if you buy a Red Label, you're going to get something very cool. Five litho prints of unpublished Guidi/Roche artwork. And, anyone who pre-orders by 4/30 will get a sixth specially treated litho print to go along with the first five.

After




Below are the ten unique, unpublished Nick Roche sketches that accompany the Black Label edition of the volume.

I had to post this one, Nick Roche tweeted it earlier.
It's the artwork for the portfolio, pre-colouring.
