    The cover shows Megatron with the new shield he didn't have in the comic. Nice!

    Guess that answers the question of when the Prime/Megs two-pack is going to be out! Just a few days.

    It also looks like Josh colored Prime to look more like the toy -look at the blue shoulders.

    I hope this leads to a restock of all 6" Titaniums at retail, including Cheetor, the Fallen and G1 Magnus.

    Oh, good god! Just when you though DON's WW work couldn't get any better, he draws that. I'd buy the set for just the comic!

    Awesome artwork.
    And I thought I wasn't going to have to go to TRU on Saturday.
    Walmart, Target, & TRU....
    Time to rebudget.

    Were those Titaniums ever stocked?
    Honestly, if not for the internet I would not have known that they ever existed.

    My local TRU had the Bumblebee/Prime sets last week... They were still in the case on the floor. I don't know if they made it to the pegs or were pulled back to the stock room for the 6/2 date.

    I wonder how much the WWI 2 pack is. Considering they want $10.99 for the 3" pack, the two 6" are probably $35.

    I saw them today; I don't know what the differences between the Primes are, but Bumblebee has more of a golden yellow color to him. Other than that, I think they're pretty much the same thing.

    Holy crap Don! Your art just keeps getting better and better. Seriously the other day I was looking at War Within Vol 1 and then Stormbringer and it was almost like night and day! Looking forward to more!

    Yeah, my TRU had the Bumblee Prime for $10.99 a couple days ago. Picked them up, even though I had the molds already these are their best paint jobs I think.

    My TRU had the Prime/BB 2 pack as well. Although I could have sworn the price was $6.99. Next time I am there I will be double checking the price on that.
