Its a nice looking set but I just cant see spending that much for something I'm not going to read. I look at that Vault book everytime Im in Barnes and Noble and cant pull the trigger on 35 bucks. :MAXIMAL:

Man, these out priced themselves for me. I really wanted one, but I can't justify spending the money on this.

When you see EJ's art in person you're going to be happy. His piece didn't photograph as well as it should have. I'll try to get better scans going.

Blue will likely sell out w/in the hour.

I've been out of the IDW loop since "All Hail Megatron", when I made a choice between spending on the toys and the graphic novels, and the toys won. So my question is, which IDW series are in this book? What story arc does it go up to? :???:

It's 17 issues: Volume 1 collects Megatron Origin #1-4, Spotlight: Blurr, Spotlight: Cliffjumper, Spotlight: Shockwave, Spotlight: Nightbeat, Spotlight: Hot Rod, Spotlight: Soundwave, and Infiltration #0-6.

The IDW Collection is IDW's suggested reading order for best dramatic flow.

I would totally buy the Black Label, but it would sincerely bum me if I got one of the decepticon prints. I saw they mentioned the artist doing rendtions of Hot Rod. Whoever gets that, I am totally jealous. If I knew that was the one I was receiving, I would throw my money at IDW. No hesitation, haha. $300 is a big investment. Seriously though, a Hot Rod drawing would seal the deal for me. *wink* *wink* If anyone happens to get that, I would be more than elated to buy it from you.
