    Yeah...the ridiculous gimmick of having two covers for the issue. To get the one you're missing, you have to order it from the website. :rolleyes2 

    For the U.S., a one-year subscription with "free" figure and slow shipping is $42. To get another copy of issue #63 with the cover you're missing, it'll be an additional $11.64 with shipping (presuming that #63 will be sold at the same price on the website as #62. That's the latest issue available on the website so far).

    (To any of you who haven't been paying attention well enough to have marked "blatant cash grab attempt" on your Bingo cards already, now's your chance.)

    Oh, and I am more convinced than ever that a purple repaint of
    Lio/Nova Prime
    will appear for sale in the club store soon after
    Unicron
    utters the words "
    Behold, Galva Lio Prime
    " or some other
    hackneyed rather than
    heroic nonsense in one or two issues of the club comic....

    Ebay:
    Cover - Art of Combiner Wars Quickslinger in robot mode (special cover 1 of 2?) and a small picture of Will Friedle on the new voice and role of Bumblebee.
    p2 - From the editors desk by Pete and "The Bolt Bites Back" by Lio Convoy talking about he Nova Prime action figure in the club store.
    p3 - Q&A with Will Friedle.
    p4 - Images and design of Combiner Wars Quickslinger.
    p5 - Images and design of Combiner Wars Break-Neck.
    p6 - Transformers hall of fame nominees: Best character - Prowl, Optimus Primal and Galvatron. Best Combiner - Devastator, Bruticus (uses FOC art) and Predaking.
    p7-12 - Another Light part 3 - Memory's Splinter - The battle of Decepticon city, a Shattered Glass version of the scene from the 1986 movie. The Decepticons have Positive Universe Grimlock and the SG Predacons against SG Superion (playing the roll of G1 Devastator). SG Superion is the Decepticon version of the Micromaster Sixwing combiner. The SG Predacons have a new member, Predaking, who looks like the Classic Nightscream figure. Lot's of reversed quotes (Optimus Prime must be stopped, no matter the cost!... It's over Galvatron! NEVER!)
    p13-14 - History of Marvel/Classicverse Grimlock.
    p15 - Bio page for G1/Classicverse/Maximal Grimlock.
    p16 - Recordicons - Ravage on guard duty is distracted by a laser pointer. The Wreckers are asked why they don't want to be a combiner. The answer - Whirl. Shotimus Prime interviews Tarantulas.

    So that officially gives us several new SG toys. Classic Mini-Con Nightscream is SG Predaking, and I'd assume the SG Superion members have the name of whatever Autobot whose name their mold shared in the Universe release as Superion. So Missile Run is Air Raid, etc. Although it would be funny if the named the helicopter SG Alpha Bravo.

    Cool colors. One question though .. is this a digi-bash done up or are these actual decepticon six wing from the early 00's Transformers Universe?

    Edit; definitely doesn't look like a digi bash looks pretty cool colors though gotta admit

    Those were actual 2003 Takara Micromaster reissues that seem to be repurposed.
