IDW Publishing's Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall has updated his blog RyallTime with the lineart version of Guido Guidi's cover for the upcoming Transformers Spotlight: Metroplex.

Guido Guidi is providing the alternate cover for the Marcelo Matere drawn comic.

The cover reflects the draft version that was first spotted at the NYCC, as we reported earlier.

Metroplex has certainly been eating his vegetables, and if this cover is anything to go by, will be portrayed as much larger than in previous series.

Spotlight: Metroplex is slated for release in July 2009.

It's kind of reminiscent of the Marvel UK "Space Pirates" cover.

Now that's a government sized hand-out. :lol: :P

Sorry about the mess, but you guys can't seem to get rid of that itch, I'll have to get it myself. :lol: :P

HA!!! Try putting my hand in warm water when I sleep now, Throttlebots!!! :lol: :P

I dare you to bite the hand that feeds you. :lol: :P

Everybody sing!!!
"So reach for the stars
Climb every mountain high
Oh, reach for the stars
Follow your heart's desire
Reach for the stars
And when that rainbow's shining over you
That's when your dreams will all come true
"
:lol: :P

Shaving cream in the hand when I'm sleeping is not funny guys!!! :lol: :P

Everybody sing!!!
"Hands up, baby, hands up,
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
Hands up, baby, hands up,
Gimme your heart, gimme, gimme your heart
Gimme gimme
All your love,
All your love
"
:lol: :P

Great job Throttlebots, your April Fool's joke went too far...never give Metroplex a manicure!!! :lol: :P

For the last time, Blaster, I'm trying to sleep!!! Turn off your blasted noise!!! :lol: :P

No, I think they finally got the size comparison correct. So often in the cartoon we'd see him in city mode and he's be enormous. But then he'd transform and Blaster would come up to his knee or shin- which makes no sense. If he truly is the size of a city, then I think they got the size right.

Lowman...OMG dude...did you leave any "hand" jokes out at all? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :APPLAUSE:

Wait, I've got one...no, never mind. That's so inappropriate I'm not even going to go there. I might...explode...holding it in *snicker* but I'm still not going there! (OMG the temptation is killing me)

Hey...he didn't make any jokes, all he said was it reminded him of a Marvel UK cover. :?

"What do you mean he's claustrophobic?"

"Up, up and away!"

"Where is that slaggin' alarm clock?"

"Michael Bay won't know what's hit him."

"How long have I been asleep?"

"Who turned him the right way up?"

"Who's Metrotitan?"

"For God's sake! Someone tell him where the Christmas presents are!!!"

"I'm not arm wrestling that!"

In all seriousness, with variant covers like this it is pretty easy to see why IDW finally made it to #3 in the overall comic rankings. With awsome artwork like this these guys have to be making money hand over... what?? Why are you looking at me like that? What did I say?? Dude, that thing better not be @#$%*& loaded...
