Roadbuster is distinctly missing from SOTW #5 cover... oh no... will Roadbuster and Whirl only get their reunion in the afterlifespark? Will we never witness the reform of the Deluxe Vehicles + Triple Changers Wreckers? ;_;

Wow, the colouring job on Galvatron's hands for the issue #53 cover of the ongoing looks really sloppy. A bit of a shame, considering the pencil work is so great. The others are all pretty great, so I guess you win some/lose some...

It's called lighting effects...

Some nice covers here. I love that Skids/Minimus/Nautica cover. And it is funny they screwed up the description for the TPB. They used the Transformers and not MTMTE's. :BOT:

Nope, those are definitely giant size digital brushmarks (particularly between index and middle finger).
ImageSince this is an early preview, we're probably just seeing a near-complete product that will be perfected in time for printing.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned yet that the description for MtMtE collected edition is wrong...

The compendium is a collection of the UK series?

I'd wager it's the first 50 issues of the Marvel US run - they're usually pretty deliberate in labeling things as "Classics UK" when the UK material is involved.

Okay. I was wondering, because there were a couple of names in the listing I haven't seen before. Had it been the UK collection, i would have probably picked it up, I've never read the UK series to this day.

Ready for those Transformers comics to finally come out tomorrow? Well, thanks to Priscilla Tramonato on Instragram, we now have a look at the Incentive Covers for tomorrow's More Than Meets The Eye 53 and The Transformers 53. The Transformers cover shows off a very angry Arcee about to slash the crap out of any con that stands in front of her, while the More Than Meets The Eye cover shows off Swerve looking all relaxed and hanging out in his favorite place: The Bar. Check out the covers mirrored below, and come back tomorrow for our reviews of More Than Meets The Eye and The Transformers, and as always stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your latest Transformers News and Galleries!
