    Recoloured version of Kei Zama's regular cover, check out the feet!

    Have a read of this article by @Maz if you're not sure why they're red:

    They still messed up though. If I was homaging that particular variant, I'd have left the heel and inside of the foot blue like how the toy is.

    The most British Transformers cover I've seen in a long time.

    I thought the red-footed version was European, rather than British?

    Yes, I thought it was French. Cheers for that. Perhaps not the best version to pop on a post-Brexit British flag, non? ;)

    The British, or more specifically the English, have always been happy to claim things as their own, why stop now?

    *Inhales for stupid question* So as this is a UK cover, will it be available IN the UK, or will I be disappointed... again?

    Retailers can place an order for the cover at the Diamond UK Retailer day this Friday, I'm sure it'll be available to order after that too, but only via Diamond UK. So yes, it will be available in the UK, whether your local comic shop will get it is another question entirely.

    Ah. Likely I won't see it then. There's a shop in Lincoln I can't get to for a while and the new shop in Sleaford only has a handful of DC and Marvel titles. I'm not a huge comic book fan, but wouldn't mind this one. Looks like eBay might be my best bet then.

    Thanks mcluskyism!
