So what becomes of these? Does just the winner become a cover? Does the winner and runners-up art get turned in to posters or printed somehow?

Damn...nice work on all of them. Wish I could draw like that but the right side of my brain is devoted to the musical arts rather than the...uh...artistic arts? :???:

This was a tough entry to do. With all the required characters it's tough for the cover not to look busy. I liked how the 1st place winner's cover has Starscream holding the matrix that's been ripped out of Prime's chest.

You know, it's hard for me to decide weather I like the first place or the second place entry more. Both are very well done. Good job to everyone.

All three are fantastic! Great job to everyone! The first place is awesome! I also liked the third one i love how Jazz looks and there seems to be more interaction with the characters in the battle. Good work! ;)^

Because if there's one thing IDW prides itself on, it's making deadlines.

I'd love to see those colored. Any one of them would be a great desktop.

Those are pretty freaking sweet. Actually much better than I anticipated. There was a lot of junk in the first round, they really found the diamonds in the rough.
