Back to business as usual with Botcon now behind us for another year, it's time for the Transformers Figure Subscription Service to get going again, and the next figure in the lineup is starting to arrive. From Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna, we've got a first look at Nacelle, supposedly one of the final uses of the Classics Seeker mold by FunPub. John's provided several photos to give a good look at the figure, so click through and check it out!
Autobase Aichi has posted a rumored list of upcoming Transformers Adventure products which features a few surprises! One is a Rumble and Frenzy 2-pack, and another is Black Shadow. What are these? Or at least, what do we think they are? Keep reading for the listings and some thoughts on what they mean!
With Botcon now just a lingering memory and Team FunPub back safely at home, they've taken stock of the exclusives for this year and found leftovers of basically everything to make available for purchase on the club's online store. While naturally the attendee freebie figure is not among them, everything else is currently available for purchase. If you couldn't make Botcon itself but still want some of the exclusives, head on over and take advantage of the leftovers while they last! Keep reading for a full list.
While most of us had eyes only for Botcon, user z75sales on Facebook was posting galleries of the production sample original G2 Protectobots, found in the collection of a deceased Hasbro employee. As of this posting Hot Spot is the most recent, and this may be the best look you'll ever get at an original G2 Hot Spot, which is actually quite sad. A gallery of Defensor is promised to follow soon. We've mirrored a few of the photos to get you started, but go check out the full galleries as well!

It's no secret by now that a little something extra was carried along with the banners decorating the Hasbro booth at Botcon 2015. A set of detailed lineart made up the background elements, along with the label "Titan Wars". But of course nothing was mentioned about this at the Hasbro panel, so what exactly is it, and what can we learn from what we saw? Keep reading!
While there were no new items added today, we did swing by Hasbro's display case one more time to get another round of high quality photos of the upcoming figures on display. With added looks at Sky Reign and Sky Lynx, the Combaticons, new Legends like Shockwave and Buzzsaw, plus RID Mini-Cons and recolors, we have almost 100 more photos to keep you in anticipation of all these releases.

On Sunday afternoon, the Art of Transformers panel took place, though more accurately it could have been called "The Artists Of Transformers" as it took place in the form of a question and answer session with the artists of both linework and coloring in the Transformers titles.
