    Just grabbed this. Wanted to let everyone know what's included:

    Death Of Optimus Prime
    Mtmte #1-3
    Cover gallery
    Sketches for Drift, Rodimus, skids, ultra magnus (vehicle mode), Rung's office, Swerve's bar, medical bay, first aid, fort max, hoist and the legislator. The legislator is one if the bots attacking skids in issue two

    Everything you didn't realize you needed to know about more than meets the eye. Looks like all kinds of info on where the book started and explaining references like Brainstorm's briefcase (ie; how it first appeared in bullets etc...)

    I thought they were going to start putting more than four issues in each TPB...

    Cool that it included Death Of Optimus Prime. I could see people wondering about Prime, if they haven't kept up with the IDW books.

    I really wish they'd start putting all this extra content in the hard cover collection. We don't even get variant covers :(

    DoOP was longer wasn't it? So I could see justifying it as five issues. Still, it was 19.99 :/

    They did with LSOTW. They even added a shit ton more

    TDOOP is 22-page issue as well as others. So there are 88 pages of comic itself, and 30+ pages of extras.
    I expected five issues when I heard there will be 128 pages, but I'm satisfied with those bonus materials.

    Now I have to check the site where I buy comics...

    ^ yeah you're right on the issue length. Just checked.

    Also, the promotional images are included in this on one page right before mtmte #1

    Interesting tidbit: Tailgate was originally supposed to be Powerglide :)

    That's VERY interesting in light of the discussion SMOG and I were just having. Was he considered too important/beloved to change radically? Was his "appearance" in Chaos ruling him out?

    Nope, 4 issues is getting to be the standard for IDW across their titles (TMNT, Star Trek, Transformers, Ghostbusters etc). Shame really, but that's life.

    I am so far behind in the comics. I'd have to buy about $200 worth of TPB's to catch up. :(

    I stopped reading with AHM.

    I started reading again with LSOTW.

    I've picked up a few issues here and there in between, but nothing hooked me.

    Then I picked this up.

    Pure awesome. It has everything I love in Transformers stories. Humor. Action. Intrigue. and best of all... a NICE MIX OF CHARACTERS. I hate it when writers regulate themselves to the 84-85 cast plus a few 86 ones...

    Picked this up and I love it.

    Has it been revealed what the item Swindle and Rewind were dealing?

    Sounds like TPBception to me. Or did that joke go out of style a long time ago? :(

    is the "everything you need to know" section completely up on amazon? only a couple pages? Thinking of double dipping because I love the book so much, but that section is my main draw.
