Much better then my Cybertronian Meth idea.

Chris Ryall's blog has revealed the artwork for Trevor Hutchison's variant cover:

The "regular" cover can be seen here:

When I've got five minutes I might sort out some mirroring. Unless one of the filthy assistants gets to it first.

With a different palette, I'm sure that'd make an excellent Stalinist poster. Probably the one I'm going to opt for if Steve has the stock for choices...

Raymond Loewy, the Bob Marley of industrial design.

I really like Trevor Hutchisons' style. I reckon Futurism fits in particularly well with vector graphics-influenced visuals. Awesome.

Ooo, it has a nice agitprop/deco art feel to it. I like this. I like it a lot.

In my fantasy world, the interior work would look like this as well. But then, some folks wouldn't get the artistic direction and mourn the lack of conventional, bulky and highly detailed forms.

Basically it's the opening credits of Poirot.

Yes - and my friend, Paul, agrees... :up: He did mention that he remembered a classic blue-scale poster of The Flying Scotsman, but I'm unable to track (hah-hah-hah) it down.

Ooh, I like the sweet body design for Blurr. Who's the artist on this? Roche?

This might turn out better than I thought...

But that's what I said when I read about All Hail Megatron.
