Diamond Comics Shipping List for November 24th - Transformers News - TFW2005
G2 Redux looks sexy...
Awesome! Sector 7 #3.
Im not sure where your getting your info but im the manager of a comic shop and the Diamond edition of the G2 comic came out yesterday. Lol. I picked up my copy and its sitting at my house right now. I think we got like 10 copies or so of it in
well, just like group of grass crickets.
So where is going to be sold at
"the Reveal the Shield Battle in Space two pack - featuring Rodimus, Cyclonus and an exclusive comic"
Diamond has a few different warehouses all the the big titles get released to all of the at the same time (Brightest Day, Secret Avengers etc). Smaller titles sometimes get pushed back a week, especially if they go to another country.
For those who have both versions (I only have the Diamond version, ordered from FP), can someone post a detailed list of differences between the two? (Specifically, I want to know if the bios are the ONLY things added. I have a suspicion about the last page of the comic, but it might have been in the original, and the Wiki just forgot to mention it.)
I have both versions and as far as i can tell the additional 4 pages worth of bios and 4 or so pages of advertisements are about the only differences i've found. I'll tkae a closer look when i get home though to be sure.
I do know that pretty much every TF item advertised in that issue is either out or comes out this month and that there is a rather hilarious pic of classics Rodimus artwork with a santa beard and hat. lol. Theres also a pretty good picture of TFCC Sideburns robot mode, i would have posted it but im fairly certain we're not allowed to poast scans from FP stuff
Currently unconfirmed. Might be a shared exclusive, might be a general release. Best I can offer is "watch this space", though my suspicion is this is to Reveal the Shield as Jetfire and Jetstorm (or the Battle Begins) was to Transformers Animated.
nice... i just emailed my store to see if they got it last week... i enjoyed this story, so i'm excited to pick up the Diamond Edition now... i think i've got every Botcon comic now except 05...
Just got home and flipped through my botcon and Diamond editions of the G2 comic and the last page is in fact different. On the 3rd panel of the last page Rapido is speaking to a couple other Autobots in the background while Streetstar and Pyro have a conversation. In the original Botcon edition Rapido says "Que Pasa Roboto?". In the Diamond edition this line and world bubble are removed entirely.
And theres also another minor change on this panel where in the Botcon edition Bumblebee is upgrading into his Goldbug body and their is a soft golden light around him. In the Diamond edition there is a heavy bold golden contour line around Goldbug's entire body.
And throughout the rest of the book, though they aren't all that noticeable, there are actually a ton of small details added to characters and backgrounds. Extra body lines drawn on for detail, colors brightened and corrected from the original Botcon edition.
I hope this helps someone decide which version they want
I just noticed there is an extra page inserted into the book following the page with Streetstar and Pyro. Slice is driving around in France and drives up to a base with a scratched out Autobot emblem on it. Who comes out to meet him?! Himself from the shattered glass universe, Shattered Glass Wheeljack!! After a brief conversation the Shattered Wheeljack walks back into the base and gives a report to none of than Shattered Glass Rodimus Prime telling him that "Nexus-whoever" has been there but is now long gone. He reveals to Rodimus that he tricked Slice into thinking Wheeljack was his future self, Slice having brought Wheeljack a canister of Forestinite. Wheeljack says they will use it for their future project, then teleports the base out of the G2 Universe.
Thats a brief rundown
Also just saw that the final page of the book has a promo for Botcon 2011 and a tagline: "The invasion has begun..."
Not sure what it means but thats it on news!
Seemed like a good time to change avatar...
Pete you tease. For most people they wont even get it til next week. Im just lucky my shop got the issue in a little early. Its like my own personal sneak peek. Lol
