    The earliest retailer incentive covers we saw for the next issue of Transformers (and also Windblade #1) had blank spots for where comic stores would be drawn in on the finished version. We've now got a look at one of the finished covers, via Giant Robot Comics. We're told there are six comic stores participating in the promotion.

    Check out Giant Robot Comics' one here, and a big thanks to TFW member D-Drive for the heads up.

    Huh. They're doing what they did with IDW's Godzilla #1. Smart marketing move.

    For some reason the art and colours look less well done than usual.

    I think mainly a few very large stores, maybe with multiple locations.

    So these are premium copies???

    Cause I kind of expected them to be retailer-exclusive versions - i.e. easy to find, when you go to the comic shop. Makes no sense to make these premium, chase covers. :banghead:

    Actually you can get as many copies made as you want. 250 copies was the minimum number you needed to order to get the custom artwork done. So any store doing it will have at least 250 copies of this cover and 250 the Devastator Windblade cover. They are only available at the store that got them but they will have plenty.
