    I dunno, but the cover looks, um strangely ill fitting. Why put Prime and Rodimus when they don't show up at all? It's also strange to do the mirror image when SG Prime no longer looks like Classics Prime anyway. Would've been a better idea to just show a fight scene between the 4 factions, no matter how standard fare it is.

    Unless the "bonus content" has something to do with Classicverse Prime reflecting on the fate of his universe. Or, they want people to think "ooh, look, Prime vs. Prime!"

    I hope the bonus content is the lead-in to the Botcon comic which TFCC had on their website. I would like to see something more conclusive to the story arc, unless they are not finished with SG-land. The whole rant from Straxus sounds like Unicron is in the works or something...

    Could be, but I don't know, it just looks poorly done. The fact that it's Classics Prime vs 3 other guys, makes it look like they're just separated by glass, instead of a mirror opposite thing.

    agreed, i'd much rather see that, but oh well.

    i hope the preview is there, as well as other stuff. can't wait to get this version, love having both versions of the Botcon comics.

    I think one of the artists just did a cool piece and TFCC decided to use that for the cover. It's not terrible, but as I said before, unless the bonus material ties-in to the cover, then it's just another piece of artwork.

    I can't find the preview on the TFCC site anymore, so here's hoping it is included in the release.

    this isn't more Shattered Glass, it's the retail version of the Botcon comic, so that people who might not have gone to Botcon can get a copy now. with bonus features...

    i saved the images, just in case :)

    The preview will likely be in this version, they usually do include the preview comics if they have them in the retail versions (Shattered Expectations was in Shattered Glass right? And I know Moving Viloations was in the Stunticon Job)

    Plus maybe that Desert Heat mini-comic will be included as well to explain Soundwave's vehicle mode (and since it hasn't been re-released yet)

    Is there a release date for this comic yet? I preordered it from my comic shop but he's had mixed results in ordering these in the past.

    Ehhn, that's all well and good, but the stylized cover from the BotCon edition was so much cooler.

    If it doesn't come out today, I believe it's late. Preorders were in July, so it should have shipped sometime this month.

    I'm confused now - my LCS has this listed on my pull list for this week. Which I assume they make up when they actually pull the books for people.
