Arguably one of the three most recreated cover designs of all time in this brand (the other two being the TFTM poster and the Marvel US Transformers #5 cover that had Shockwave carving "ARE ALL DEAD" into a wall).

it's ok but doesn't quite have the nightmarish quality of the original cover that made it interesting.

I like her as an artist, but this piece is underwhelming. Not only is it not original, it looks like a draft instead of a finished product. As for the arms, I think it's all a matter of perspective. However, if she had to use a previous work as a starting point, she should have gone with the TFTM poster, considering the story is about Unicron. Just replace Magnus with Prime, and the surrounding G1 characters with the IDW ones that are involved.

The artists create covers based on instructions given to them. At most, she might have had some choice in the floating background heads. Maybe. Probably not.

I think Marvel TF #1 has a wacky, bad looking cover anyways and that Pitre-Durocher did an excellent job adapting her style to something radically different from her usual output.

Nothing much from the panel, as expected. Some interior art, via TFU.info on Twitter, for Unicron #5:

It's a little annoying to still have 0 news about the 2019 plans except that "IDW is making Transformers comics", but I'm glad they're taking their time. Make it big or it won't be.
