Purple overload! [That sounds a bit rude.]

Excellent for blending into period dramas, Star Trek holodeck simulations, Nineteenth Century high society, Sci Fi and Fantasy conventions, certain special-interest bars, Dr. Who nonsense and many, many other places that I can't think of right now for some reason (terrible memory and all that).

Cyclonus is so darned OLD that he thinks this look for his avatar is wildly futuristic!

Weapon: Fusion Cannon
The more I look at that cover, the more I think how easy it would be to repaint RID Drift purple and have an instant IDW Cyclonus.

Except he turns into a car.

A planet chasing the Lost Light? There are a couple of possibilities:

Most likely is Deathsaurus and his War World. We do know, however, that Luna 1 has thrusters on it, so it's possible that Fortress Maximus came looking for his friends for some reason.

So I'm guessing combiner hunters is a miniseries right? Also is chromia just on the mtmte cover just to justify the full image or is she actually going to appear in the issue. Sorta ducks for the lost light crew to be overshadowed by someone not even on their series

Retailer incentive covers almost *never* reflect anything in the issue. ;)

As for Combiner Hunters, it's both a one-shot and the monicker for the three ongoings for a while, much like Days of Deception and Dawn of the Autobots.

Reminds me of the posters in fable 2 and 3. All you need is an add like "Caminus gal always gets her way. Drink caminon ale, the beer fit for a city speaker."

Also slightly of topic Va'al, any updates on when these should be getting to stores? There's been a distinct lack of transformers comics for the past 2 weeks :-(

Next week is supposedly TF 43 and RiD Cartoon 1 (though supposedly last week was as well. We'll know for certain sometime today, I think).

Week after is Windblade. No idea on MTMTE. Wish they'd get their ducks in a row on the release schedule, it's been really wonky this entire year.

Isn't the week after next week the last week of the month? And we're missing MTMTE 43 and Combiner hunters. I give IDW more leeway than say D.C. but still, what the fudge.

We're expecting three comics in one week, this month. As ScottyP said, TF#43 and RID#1 next week, and in all likelihood, Windblade#5, MTMTE#43 and Combiner Hunters the one after that.
