Via Facebook, IDW has shared the full cover and an extended blurb for their Transformers comic offering coming up this Free Comic Book Day in early May of 2018 - yes, FCBD marketing gets almost as much seasonal creep as Christmas now. This issue sounds like it'll be kicking off the long-anticipated debut of Unicron in the IDW universe, and surely that can't bode poorly for the Transformers books and everything connected to them, right?

Surprise! Or it would have been if not for the tireless efforts of eternal Weibo leaker tf-factory, who has posted Power of the Primes package backs today. Included are Voyagers Elita-1, Inferno, and Hun-Gurr as well as Deluxe Moonracer.
