    So why do we have so many dead people here on the cover? And more importantly why Prowlastator?

    I like this cover, especially how it has most of the main characters that were featured in Transformers: Robots in Disguise and Optimus Prime.

    Because this serves as the final issue in the IDW universe. These are all people who have been major players throught the events of IDW’s story for the past 10 years.

    Don't worry, in just a few short months, all of them will be dead.

    It's been a heck of a ride. While Optimus Prime and ex-RID never hit the highs of MTMTE and Lost Light, I thought it had a good story going, and I appreciate what it brought to Transformers.

    This cover is beautiful and I feel nostalgic looking at it.

    Looks good, Prowl gets X2 appearance?

    Would have included Kup and Metroplex/Titan in the background.

    Oh, great. IDW Metalhawk again a.k.a. "How to be a whiner extraordinaire".

    So thrilled about him...

    I don't think he's in the issue. This is the swan song, so it's likely just tribute to major characters in the series.

    I would think Sideswipe, Sunstreaker (brothers), Galvatron, Aileron, and Soundwave would have been considered for the tribute cover, but I guess you can't fit everyone.

    Unless... this is a memorial.... and they're all DEAD! DEAD I SAY!

    I would still like to see covers from Every artist who worked on the IDW-Hasbroverse. Don, Livio are some of the few who haven\'t put covers out yet for Unicron.

    How feasible would it be to get Don Fig. to contribute even a one-off cover art?
    That question makes me sound like such a doubter even though he's still a favorite TF artist of mine.

    This is one cover I wouldn't mind seeing released as a poster so I could display it in my collection room. I'm really going to miss IDW Thundercracker. His character post All Hail Megatron will always be my favorite thing about IDW's first TF run.

    I know Livio's style chafes a lot of people but I like it, and he's a very personable artist when I've chatted with him on DeviantArt. He deserves some credit for being a part of the creative team.
