    Including a Target 2006 cover showcasing the Wreckers...

    ...the Kup book looks really, really fun. Kup himself -- well, check out the images.

    Reminder that after a printing problem, Movie Prequel #1 will be out on the 7th.

    Haven't had chance to read through the interview segments myself yet, but I assume there'll be spoilers.

    Advance reviews for issues that are quite a way off:

    Escalation #5 --

    Spotlight: Soundwave --
    http://fractalmatter.com/main/?p=541

    Assuming spoilers, so personally I'm probably just going to give them a light skim later on. No art spoilers in there apart from already-seen covers.

    (Also an advance review for BtVS season eight if you're interested.)

    Wow, the kup issue looks both really intense and really wacky and fun. I'll have to buy that generation issue just for the Wreckers cover. Love me some Jumpstarters. :)

    Very cool.
    Love the way Kup is drawn.
    Has a very Sin City feel to it.

    Cool. I always wanted to know more about Kup since the 86 movie.

    Reprinted. Done over five issues, with the last one having ads dropped to fit it in.

    Why is Kup so skinny? Did he lose his armor?

    Well the story was 11 pages each (IIRC). Wouldn't have made sense to release them individually.

    I hope Outback and Kup join the Wreckers this time. It would be fun to see relative wimps in the elite commando squad.

    Looks pretty wrecked to me. Outback doesn't look too hot either...

    The art looks a bit better coloured.

    Jumpstarters for the win! :) 

    It's nice to see that they've all been given the chance to shine, lately.

    I am really not digging the artwork for the Kup spotlight, but the story essentially looks like Kup vs. zombies. It could be stick figures and I'd still buy it.

    That Kup spotlight looks -perfect-. *drool* Deranged and emaciated oldman robot screaming at Outback's half-eaten corpse.

    Is this the first confirmation we've gotten that IDW will be reprinting Time Wars? 'Cause that's news to me...

    Kup's Crystals? Maybe the same ones Prowl talked about in War Within. That spotlight looks like fun.

    Escalation #5 review? #4 isn't even out yet... how do they do it...?

    Love the Wreckers cover. First official picture of Impactor in, what, 10 years? :)  I know a certain someone who's gonna love it... :) 

    PLus, don't forget Rack and Ruin in the background!
