There may be delays in IDW Publishing comics this week, but to tide us over untill all distribution issues are resolved, we also have the full list of solicitations for the Transformers titles out in May 2015! The biggest news, other than Combiner Wars reaching its conclusion with both The Transformers and Windblade, is probably the SPOILERS in the More than Meets the Eye solicit, and the reprint of the beginning of the current phase of IDWverse in a massive format - check them all out below, and beware the spoilers.

So I think it's safe to assume Starscream (and Skywarp?) will too get the leader Skyfire body according to that cover?

That's like, a body per year for Screamer?

Looks like Devastator has his old head back as well.

I'm guessing Prowl uses the Enigma of Combination to rid himself of Scrapper's personality in his head, and it likely gets dumped into poor old Scoop.

Oh jeez. It looks as though we'll be seeing Ultra Prime here.

I just hope the story quality stays up, and doesn't go down.

That description is so blunt, it's either very simple and he'll just die, or there's way more to it and he won't. Never know with JR.

iirc, he already mentioned in his one (or two?) appearances that his time was running short.

The first introduction to him during Dark Cybertron (or just before that) has him reveal that his ship, Vis Vitalis, is a giant life support machine. So yes, there is that.

His grave statue should depict him falling from the sky riding Skullcruncher.
