    OK, so I got home from Target this afternoon, and I had picked up the Springer/Ratbat and Roadbuster/Dirge comic 2-packs.

    However, it seems as if the comics were swapped. The War Within comic that featured Springer and Ratbat was packaged in with Roadbuster and Dirge. The Wreckers comic that seemed to have some autobot with Roadbusters colors, and at least 1 panel with Drige in it, was packed with Springer/Ratbat. Is this an isolated incident, or has anyone else noticed it too?

    There hasn't been a set reported so far that isn't coming with the opposite comic. Unless you're in Canada and then you just don't get a comic at all.

    That's odd, my Springer/Ratbat one had the same problem.

    That blows. The only set I could see myself wanting is the Springer vs Ratbat 2-pack. So I guess If I do decide to pick it up, I'll be getting a comic about two repaints that I DON'T care about. Sheesh...Hasbro is sometimes retarded.

    Not surprised they did it that way. The comic is just an ad, so when you buy one set, you get an ad for the other set.

    Even though if you got the swapped comic you'd just be getting a reprint of an 80s Marvel UK story that has the ORIGINAL Dirge and Roadbuster in it, not like they redid the art 20 years after the fact to help sell the toys.\

    Hasbro's ultimate plan to make more money. Mix up the comics for all you completionists.

    I don't see how it's supposed to be an "ad". It's supposed to be a little story to go along with the figures you get. While I'm not going to get the Dirge vs. Roadbuster set for the comic book, it would be nice if it came with the one it was advertised to come with.
