    So here it is, Milne's cover for the final issue of the IDWverse, featuring Unicron chowing down on 13 years of IDW Transformery good-and-not-so-goodness. Pretty darn tasty, yes?

    Now what've we got here:
    Thunderwing from back in Stormbringer
    Devastator punching New York in All Hail Megatron
    Bumblebee looking pissed at some point in the Costa years
    Dorifuto-kun, Wing and Dai Atlas in the Drift miniseries
    Rom being Rom
    Optimus annexing Earth in Transformers/ex-RID
    Shockwave in I assume Dark Cybertron
    Acroyear from Micronauts being small
    Overlord pulling off Guzzle's legs in Last Stand of the Wreckers
    Kup getting rekt by Virulina in Transformers vs. Visionaries
    Scarlett and Flint from G.I. Joooooeeeeee
    Megatron probably on Necroworld in MTMTE
    Wreck-Gar pre-being a disembodied head
    Windblade and Chromia presumably being done with Starscream's nonsense
    Vektral possessing Ultra Magnus in Rom vs. Transformers: Shining Armour
    Tarn not being Roller
    And Matt Trakker/Spectrum and Gloria Baker/Aura from M.A.S.K.

    I really hope Milne sticks around, because he's an incredible artist. I seriously dig the design for Unicron here.

    I think what saddens me the most is that we will more than likely never get a toy of this Unicron design.

    What I find impressive in this is that the artist could have easily taken the easy way out... and by that, I mean, that he didn\'t have to redraw all those scenes. He could have just copy / pasted old art into those glass pieces and called it a day. But, nope, complete redraw. Good job.

    So awesome. Thanks for taking Transformers comics to another level with your amazing art, Milne, I hope the guy knows how much the fandom loves his work.

    Wow just wow this is absolutely mind blowing I love every bit of this cover, I was however kinda surprised that Rodimus & Starscream didn’t feature in this but other than that great cover.

    Imagine if all it takes to destroy Unicron is to talk about the past.

    This is an amazing cover.

    It's really weird to look at this cover and know it's the last one of this universe. A great cover, but a sad moment.

    Beautiful. I don't think it would be exaggerating to say that this is one of the best covers in IDW's run.
