And yet ANOTHER Botcon on the west coast. WTF is up with Hasbro holding it out west 3 of the last 5 years? The mid-west and east coast need some loving also.

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

Slated for 2017 and with no details yet given, it's far too early to know what shape Hasbro's new Transformers Fan Club will take. But even if we don't know what it will be, we probably all have thoughts on what it should be. RAC definitely does - and he feels the time is ripe for a change. Keep reading for his thoughts on the issue, this time written in the first person!
Brian from Radio Free Cybertron has let us know there's another big announcement today: there's a new Transformers Fan Club coming in 2017! Details are light at the moment - but in the meantime Hasbro has also announced a new Transformers Newsletter which will keep you posted on the Fan Club developments - and, if you sign up for it, will also provide you with a 20% Off Hasbro Toy Shop coupon code! Keep reading for a link to the signup page!
Via Facebook, The Collector's Club has shared a photo of a packaging sample of their Ninja Force GI Joe/Transformers crossover exclusive set. Making a point to demonstrate the collector-friendly nature of the packaging, it's explained how a plastic sleeve easily slides off or on the inner tray of the box, allowing the included figures to easily be taken out or replaced as you choose. The inner flap also contains the background of Megatron's brief affiliation with Cobra, and establishes the context of Ratbat, and the Autobots Black Cat and Toaster in the set. We've mirrored the photo along with the previous packaging mockup for your convenience - keep reading!
Apparently there was a bit of a goof at the Collector's Club Facebook page today, as the upcoming Transformers/GI Joe crossover exclusives were advertised as available for purchase. This was in error and the post removed, but not before someone managed to get a screencap of the attached images. Here we can see the individual card mockups for Only Human Arcee and Rodimus, plus the box that the Ninja Force crossover pack will come in. Sounds like these may be close to going up for sale now. Keep reading to check out the preview!
Thanks once again to John DeLuna, we also have pictures of the seventh "bonus" figure that ships alongside Impactor. While the identity of the figure was revealed unofficially a while back thanks to an image from an overseas auction, we are in this one case avoiding making direct mention of the character in case you managed not to be spoiled then and truly want a surprise with your final shipment. Beyond this point is a nice gallery of photos revealing the toy, so beware!
