    TRANSFORMERS: BEAST WARS #3 (OF 4)
    Simon Furman (w); Don Figueroa (a); Roche, Raiz, & Guidi (c)
    The Beast Wars—a timelost series of conflicts on Earth: heroic Maximals pitted against
    evil Predacons. The action steps up into an even higher gear as Magmatron turns his
    attention to fulfilling his original (Tri-Predacus Council-approved) mission objective:
    capture Megatron and return him to Cybertron for trial. Does that mean he’s prepared to
    just let Razorbeast and his Maximal militia be? Of course not. Not now that Ravage is on
    the case! By Simon Furman and Don Figueroa.

    THE TRANSFORMERS: INFILTRATION #4
    Simon Furman (w); EJ Su (a); Su, Guidi, Raiz, & Wildman (c)
    Ratchet needs answers, before the crisis on Earth escalates, and that means sending a
    crack team deep—literally—into enemy territory. Too bad then, given Ratchet’s oath to
    protect human life, that his available resources amount to Verity, Hunter and Jimmy. Too
    bad also that Decepticon unit commander Starscream is intent on removing all evidence
    of his indiscretions, and that includes the particular bit of ‘enemy territory’ in question.
    Enter: Blitzwing and Skywarp! By Simon Furman and E.J. Su.

    TRANSFORMERS: THE WAR WITHIN - OPTIMUS PRIME MINI-STATUE - Offered Again
    Hundreds of thousands of years ago, during the terrible civil wars of Cybertron, the
    mantle of "Prime" fell heavily upon this Autobot's shoulders. Originally an accomplished
    archivist and intelligence analyst, Optimus faced grave doubts about his ability to lead —
    not only from his own troops, but within his own Spark as well. But the challenge of
    struggling against the consuming madness of the Decepticons as well as conquering his
    own deep doubts gave rise to the greatest Autobot Prime of all time — Optimus Prime!
    Presented here in his original Cybertronian guise, from a time before even prehistoric
    man gazed wonderingly up at the stars — a polystone rendering of every detailed piston,
    tread and servo of the Autobot that would stand as one of the greatest heroes the universe
    has ever known! Fully authorized and presented on an official Autobot symbol base, this
    is a Transformer collectible unlike any seen before!Strictly limited to initial orders. Some
    minor assembly may be required. Available Now!
    Statue SRP: $49.99 - 64.99

    That cover with SnakeEyes is ridiculous. There's no way Prime is that much larger than a human.

    I always thought it was LioConvoy and I did run across a custom of his Cybertronian self somewhere and man I wish I saved it to share.

    OH man all I can say is this, Anybody know whats they best way to restrain your wallet when it tries to kill yah? Yep gonna be spending alot when these start hitting.

    I wonder, what are they are going to name leo convoy? Something latin sounding maybe? Optimus "Leo" Alpha perhaps? It looks like BW will be IDW's best TF title too bad its just a mini I am psyched.
