    I just ran out and picked this up and squeeled like a school girl when I got it in my hand. The last page made me squeel even louder.

    We didn't previously know what each of the extras would be, so just to clarify this is what they are:
    • cover art gallery
    • "Out of Bullets" - A commentary from James Roberts on the prose story "Bullets"
    • "Escape" A two page comic drawn and written by Nick Roche that features Guzzle and Impactor. Takes place after Last Stand.
    • "Zero Point" A brand new prose story from James Roberts that features Roadbuster and Springer. Takes place after Last Stand.
    • Autopedia entries - Rotorstorm, Pyro, Overlord, Snare, Ironfist, Guzzle, and Impactor
    • "Fisitron's Facts" - Little known facts about Last Stand of The Wreckers, included with first Trade paper back
    • pin-ups, promo art, guest art Marcelo Matere, Livio Rimondelli, Josh Burcham and more all contribute.
    • Script extracts - A "deleted scenes" from Last Stand
    • First Draft - A look at what the very first version of Last Stand of The Wreckers that Nick Roche wrote before James Roberts came on board. There were five revisions and rewrites of the book. Excellent stuff with Kup and Guzzle in this.
    • "Squadron X" - A detailed look at each of the members and their previous appearances in Transformers fiction
    • "In Word and Deed" - A one page comic featuring Verity that takes place after Last Stand.
      The last panel may leave you with your jaw hanging open.


    Spoilers! These are good, so if you don't want to be spoiled, I'm warning you.
    In the first draft, it's revealed that the surving Wreckers leaving Garrus (Among them; Kup, Guzzle, Impactor and Pyro), Kup says "Well, that's the end of that" and Guzzle guns him down in revenge for the friends he lost when the Autobots were trying to rescue Kup. Would've been a much better ending to Kup's story


    In the very end of "In Word and Deed", it's revealed that Verity has Ironfist's dataslug.

    I preordered this from my mail-order service, which means I won't get it until the first week of March.

    ...Don't know if I can hold out that long. :poop

    Escape and In Word and Deed are both short but so full of win.

    Haven't finished Zero Point yet but I'm anxious to learn more about where Roadbuster's been hiding.

    Words can't describe how awesome the guest art gallery is. Livio's Overlord is gorgeous and Josh's Guzzle is dying to be made into an avatar. Actually, a lot of that art will be.

    Are any of the profiles that are featured in the original comic issues NOT reproduced in this hardcover? Is the prose story "Bullets" itself included in the hardcover?

    okay... so I'm just now finding out that there's bonus content in these fancy hard-cover books.

    What have I missed in any of the others!??? Because this seems to be a must buy, in my book. Bonus art, stories, bios, and a extra lil one page comic....

    I have a gift card to Barnes & Noble that I haven't known what to use for, looks like I'll be making a stop there this week to see if they have this in stock (assuming my new card arrives this week too).

    Yeah. Now I NEED to get this hardcover.

    A question:
    Does the ending of it involve Hunter and/or Jimmy at all? We never did get any more info about Jimmy after the end of Maximum Dinobots, after all.

    This is still available on Amazon, isn't it? I don't have any stores around me that carry stuff like this, so I'm hoping it is. LSOTW will be my first Transformers comic eventually.
