More than Meets the Eye 42 RI Cover

Via Tumblr, we have a look at the retailer incentive cover for More than Meets the Eye 42! It’s a party in this cover as the crew of the Lost Light enjoy some Energon goodies while watching fireworks. Like the MTME 41 retailer incentive cover, do not expect this one to necessarily represent any events taking place in the issue. It’s a really cool cover – check it out!

From the pages of IDW’s comic books, USA Today has just revealed Fan-Built Combiner Victorion! In the article, Combiner Hunters writer Mairghread Scott discusses the combiner and the one-shot comic itself. There’s also some input from Hasbro Transformers design manager John Warden, and the individual components of Victorion finally have their alt-modes revealed: two race cars, two helicopters, a motorcycle and a rescue truck. The article also briefly touches on issue 50 and something called “Conquerers” – apparently the next storyline in IDW:

“The Transformers universe is about to get an influx of girl power and a giant new personality.

Six female robots that team up to form the massive Combiner character Victorion debut next month in IDW’s Transformers: Combiner Hunters comic book, and they’re a motley crew made tighter by surviving pretty much the worst environment possible.”

You can check out the full article here: Victorion a giant in ‘Transformers’ lore

Check that, and a preview of the Combiner Hunters comic (spoilers!), out after the break and let us know your thoughts on the Fan-Built Combiner!
