New Details about the LSOTW hardcover?

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"



Amazon.com: Transformers: Last Stand of the Wreckers HC (Tranformers) (9781613771266): James Roberts, Nick Roche: Books

Oh sure, I could go digital or buy the trades, but obsessively collecting Roche covers is half the fun.

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.

You know, I have the issues individually and the Paperback, I may just have to have this too and I have absolutely no qualms about it!
