    Because the figures are "punched" out of the page, I'd assume.

    Todd has gone on record that this type of product is geared more towards the consumer who's buying for somebody else, whether it's a parent for their kid or as a gift.

    They're not necessarily FOR collectors, they're a low price option. Todd these days seems to be very much about putting out product for as many demographics as possible.

    Diversify your assets. Pretty good long term strategy.

    I wonder how many reprints he will do. The new comics won't have a lot of material to pull from. Will be interesting to see the covers too. Will it be the normal issues or special covers?

    I'm pretty sure these are just the minis. Todd is still in the comic game and made a fun little line to get comics into more hands.

    This could be a good way to advertise new comics (from his pal Kirkman) to more people. I think it's a good idea, but no more than that

    Right now it is IDW, there was one booth tour where you could see a comic cover. I'm sure they will switch to some reprints of the new comics once they are available. They also just seem to use notable issues where its appropriate for a character.

    I'm just hoping that with enough time, Todd can convince them to let him do a 7' line. In the mean time, I'm not setting my expectations high, given it's the 3' line.

    Maybe a trade? He lets them touch his baby spawn and he gets access to transformers?

    Nah.

    Ok, I can get behind this! I have a hard time justifying buy figures at this point in my life (space is an issue), but if they come with comics I am all for it!

    Sucks to hear it’s not 7inch (could change of course) because I might, might have been tempted by a Wheeljack (if it was actually IDW).
    Yeah randomly I watched Pixel Dan’s tour and yeah we get a brief glimpse of two comics.

    They're pretty decent looking in person. I passed because I dislike IDW designs, but Megatron is definitely the star of the four as his sculpt seems the most detailed.

    To think of all the wasted plastic here that could\'ve been put toward a new Spawn wave instead...

    I disagree. It's also true.
