    Not sure if this has been reported yet, but I was browsing my pre-orders on amazon for the (constantly pushed back) hardcover edition of LSOTW. I was excited when it was initially reported that it was 40 pages longer than the trade paperback, so I threw it in my cart right away. Today, I noticed they had added some previews of the inside of the book, including a table of contents for the new extras. The TPB had included the 1-page mosaic "Dead Men's Boots," an 11 page text story called "Bullets," and a few Autopedia entries that weren't in the original issues (though not the original entries themselves), plus a few facts from Nick.

    The new edition features all of the above, as well as:
    - cover art gallery
    - some things called "Out of Bullets," "Escape," "Zero Point," and "In Word and Deed" (more text stories?)
    - more pages of Autopedia entries (all of them this time?)
    - "Fisitron's Facts" (I don't remember if that was the facts from Nick in the TPB or if it's something new)
    - pin-ups, promo art, guest art
    - script extracts and first draft
    - and something simply titled "Squadron X"

    Cool, I'll be looking forward to this! Will this version be available at Barnes and Noble? I have a gift card for there I was hoping to use on this...

    I hope, at that very least, the Squadron X bit shows off Roche's concept art for them or some kind of profile.

    It being only one page long though doesn't fill me with much hope for either.

    Still, gonna have to pick this up.

    I have the TPB, when I get the HC I'll probably give the TPB to my brother as he's recently become a fan of comics in general and this is nearly the perfect TF comic :D 

    as Exclusacon said (and I implied with my "constantly pushed back" comment in the first post), Amazon keeps e-mailing me with different dates so I don't know what the confirmed date is. But, with the cover art having changed and the table of contents inserted, I'm guessing it's ready to go to the printers

    This is the first time I've wanted the Hardcover of a comic, after getting both the entire original series and the trade paperback.

    I wish I could hate Roche and Roberts for making me spend money, but I really can't... :lol

    Oh, that might also be worth drawing attention to. The coverart was originally (in the initial solicitation) the same as Trevor Hutchison's cover of issue 1. Now it's a slightly different Hutchison piece. So, new cover, yay

    I'm tempted to get this for the extras, even though it'd end up being the third version of the series I'll end up with, (TPB, this hardcover, and the preorder I have for IDW Collection Vol. 6 later this year).

    I have the TPB but will gladly replace it with this because of all the character bios and additional info.

    I already have the original trade paperback, but I might have to get this hardcover version sometime. SO MUCH EXTRA STUFF.

    (Although I can't say I like the cover that much. Trevor Hutchinson is a cool cover artist, but the original Roche-drawn one for Issue 1 and the TPB blows this one out of the water.)

    I notice that Bullets fills in some of the Blanks with the absent wreckers..
    "Roadbuster still caught up in that Sparkeater buisness,Whirl all but a liability,Sandstorm if still alive deep behind enemy lines & Broadside these days all but lost to them"
    New profiles look great too.

    I hope that section has concept art of them (any other bots, im looking at you Xaaron and Flame you cameo-bots.) so it would be easier to draw them all! (especially Macabre and Flame, wtf is going on with your helm Flame doesn't look right at all from the front!)
