    eh, no real reason lol. I grew up with the show and never had his toy, so he's always been Skyfire to me :p

    You could basically just replace this with the Jetfire reveal. Same thing over and over.

    Jesus Christ, spoiler tags aren’t needed for a book that was out over six months ago… he’s JETFIRE in the comics. The toy is called JETFIRE. Marvel called him JETFIRE too. Skyfire was a Sunbow name only.

    I'm allowed to call him Skyfire, everyone knows who I mean when I say Skyfire.

    (It's a more interesting name anyway)

    Question(s) about the FCBD special: is it that there’s one cover releasing on FCBD and then others releasing on May 8th? And if so, are the covers releasing after FCBD also free? (If that’s all the case, which covers release when?)

    Those issues are sold at cover/variant cover price at retail.

    It's a bit different than what FCBD is supposed to be.
    Not sure the exact reasoning behind it, but it seems like if you want variant covers you're going to have to pay the premium prices for them. I don't believe there's any indication there is any bonus or extra in the issues that will be for sale at retail.
