    For those of you craving unchecked, cover-to-cover giant robot action (guaranteed no

    dark chapter in the planet’s history, one that is about to hit the Autobots and Decepticons
    again… full force! By the Beast Wars team supreme of Simon Furman and Don Figueroa.
    This special four-part series will tell one complete, self-contained cosmic epic. What’s
    more, each issue will feature a wraparound cover from Figueroa, all four of which
    combine to present one huge image, and a variant cover from Fig, too. *Covers will be

    Nevermore - I believe this is re-solicitation due to a price change, or casepack change from Hasbro to Diamond.

    Lots of us believe it's Thunderwing.

    1000 copies is pretty steep. What would be the asking price for that Incentive item?
