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.

Makes me wonder if they are actually going to start killing off the combiners because they are so over powered.

Our first piece of news from IDW Publishing, via their Facebook page, today comes in the shape of the Retailer Incentive covers for all three major ongoings: Windblade #5, The Transformers #43 and More Than Meets the Eye #43. Artist James Biggie, who will also be working on Transformers: Redemption, has prepared three travel ads for locations in the Transformers Universe, for the 'Pan Cybertronian Spaceways', referencing Caminus, Unicron's Head and Nebulos - check them out below!

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.
