Default Last Stand of the Wreckers Hardcover Extras

According to Amazon, the Last Stand of the Wreckers hardcover page count will be 40 more than the softcover edition. My guess is probably draft scripts and the sort.

Damn, IDW is trying to milk the fans with the only quality material they have.

---

UPDATE

Courtesy of Amazon, The Last Stand of the Wreckers hardcover edition will include;
  • Last Stand of the Wreckers (obviously)
  • "Bullets" (prose)
  • "Out of Bullets" (prose)
  • "Dead Men's Boots" (mosaic piece)
  • Character Profiles
  • Series Covers
  • Script Extracts
  • Guest Artwork
  • Squadron X
  • "Escape" (prose)
  • Promotional Artwork
  • Fisitron's Facts
  • Pin-Ups
  • First Draft
  • "Zero Point" (prose)
  • "In Word and Deed" (prose)

According to Seibertron, anyway. Page count is 40 more than the softcover edition. My guess is probably draft scripts and the sort.

I'll probably end up buying this.

However this should be a lesson to IDW. Give the fans a writer who knows his shit, loves his source material, and can actually write a coherent plot for more then 2 issues and it'll be like printing money.

Problem with IDW arcs are that they never have a satisfying conclusion, Wreckers and the early Furman works aside.

When it was going the six-issues-one-story route, every arc in the ongoing starts off promising until they dissolve into an incoherent mess at the end.

The profiles from the individual issues would make sense for some of it, after all the "We want people to buy both" excuse is pretty pointless now the issues are long out of print.

Will see what the extras are and what Amazon's discount works out at.

I think it's bloody stupid to teach your customers that it's better to not buy early releases, though.

This is one series I would love a hardback version of. Must order it soon-ish. Nice to have extra LSOTW stuff anyway.

i'd happily buy this as a hardcover. i kept my single copies with the pretty trevor hutchinson designs , was annoyed that the profiles in them were missed for the trade (which as ever looked cheaply assembled, but at least had that awesome prose story bullets in) which i have worn out through so many rereads. I'd hope its an ultimate version that includes all the profiles and bullets.

A complete cover gallery would be nice, the Hutchinson covers are awesome (and indeed were the one, megre highlight of AHM).

LSOTW hardcover is now on Amazon UK, in case anyone did not know. On my Amazon Wish list too, if anyone is feeling generous...

Question

So, do we know yet what's in the extra forty pages yet, or if that's even accurate?

It probably wouldn't take much for me to seek this out....

Ordered. That's actually a good enough package that I don't resent having the trade to pass on to someone else.

Anyone else get theirs yet? Haven't had chance to read it, and probably won't until weekend, but did anyone's have a dust cover? There's a bit of a bump on this one from Amazon, not bad enough to warrant a return, but if it's actually missing something I will...

No dust jacket on mine, either, Denyer. (Picked up in person from my comic shop, so no jacket in evidence from multiple types of procurement, then.)

It is a very handsome looking volume, though. I probably won't read much of the new material for a bit, though - I go through my comic pile in a "save the best for last" order, and this definitely goes towards the "best" end of the stack.

I can say though, if anyone happens to read this post who hasn't read Last Stand of the Wreckers at all before this edition - DON'T READ THE FORWARD FIRST! A ways down into it, it gets rather spoilery....

Cheers.

I think you'll find the back material worth the wait. It's not massively extended from the stuff in the individual comics and the TPB, but it does make a very nice package and has obviously been put together with loving attention.
