Maybe 2 weeks before Comic Con? I guess they couldn't get Anaheim again? Honestly Fun Pub needs to go with the same dates every year instead of jumping around all the time

Now that we can see the silhouettes it doesn't seem like they're really hinting at any possible figures aside from maybe RtS G2 Prime for MW Prime. Soundwave, Starscream, and Megatron are all in their MW forms, not updated. Galvatron is just G1 Galvatron, not even Generations Galvatron. I th... read more

TCC Magazine #67! Issue 67 of the TCC Magazine is starting to arrive. What will you get? ALL KINDS of great content including never before seen Transformers "Battle Beasts" designs from the 80's, the start of the new TCC comic story arc "Of Masters and Mayhem", the Back page feature with a comic by the very talented Josh Perez and first looks at the TFSS 5.0 figures Double Pretender Optimus Prime w/ HI-Q and Paradron Medic w/ Quickslinger.
John DeLuna has also shared tonight some pictures from the Club magazine featuring membership premium figure Ramjet, and Club Store exclusive Skywarp, both based on the Generations Armada Starscream tooling. The image of Ramjet gives a good look at the new face sculpt, plus the deco giving it the look of a glowing mouth. And we also get a look at a mockup of the packaging for Skywarp, taking heavily after classic Armada packaging. Keep reading to see both pictures!
As promised some while back, the newest TFCC magazine issue contains a preview for the fifth iteration of the Transformers Figure Subscription Service, which was announced even before the fourth had all its production samples revealed. Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna has tweeted out a photo of the preview page, showing two of the upcoming figures. Unsurprisingly there's a reuse of the Oilmaster Pretender shell created for Botcon 2015's boxset, and a not-so outside the box reuse of Generations Arcee. Keep reading to see what they are!
The Transformers Collector's Club has posted the first part of a new prose story by Andrew Hall! Featuring the Shattered Glass Minibots and sporting illustrations by Hayato Sakamoto, "Spatiotemporal Challengers Part 1: Sunrise" is available at the Club's website in a bilingual English/Japanese PDF file. Keep reading to see the cover illustration and get a link to the download page!
They must have heard us talking about them, as The Club has just followed up their reveal of Thunder Mayhem with a decent look at Impactor, the Rook retool that joins the fourth subscription set. This is also set to come with Generations Arcee's assortment of weapons, and is demonstrated here using one of the swords in place of Impactor's traditional harpoon attachment. We were able to enlarge the image just enough to get a decent view of the details of the new head sculpt, so you'll find that image along with the mirrored original below.
