Thanks to Allspark forums member Walky, we have confirmation that the Transformers BotCon 2013 theme will be Machine Wars. The news was revealed in the latest edition of the TFCC Magazine that appears to be landing in people's mailboxes just about now. Word is the image shows teasers for Machine Wars Soundwave, Megatron, Starscream, Laser Prime (RTS) and Galvatron. We can only hope there will be some actual Machine Wars molds such as the Universe King Atlas (shown below) offered up instead of reduxed figures, but we'll have to wait and see.
Silhouettes of MW Soundwave, Megatron, and Starscream standing over a wrecked RTS Laser Prime and Galvatron. These "Machine Wars" are a premonition of the future as seen by Sizzle.
(I suppose it could be Megaplex, not Megatron. Might make more sense, given Galvatron's right there. Or not, who knows.)

TCC Figure Subscription Service 3.0!The Transformers Collectors' Club Figure Subscription Service (TFSS) for version 3.0 is at the half way point, and we only have two reveals left! A very interesting figure that has appeal to fans of both Transformers and G.I. Joe, this character is a mix of the greatest military minds from throughout human history meshed with Cybertronian technology - Serpent O.R.! As a reminder, the order period will be open through October 2nd, 2014.
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: KTC unveils lots of new cassette combiners, the Transformers G1 cartoon debuted 30 years ago this week and the guys share their memories of that time, plus we talk about the Transformers Collector's Club Subscription Service, Masterpiece Wheeljack and lots more!

The Collectors Club has posted the next promo image from Subscription Service 3, featuring Carzap who is based on an unproduced G2 Windbreaker recolor from the planned Japanese Block Town line using Kre-O and including a Kreon GB Blackrock figure. Carzap is based on the body used for IDW Bumblebee/Goldfire/Nightbeat/Go-Shooter with a new unique headsculpt for this character. Keep reading to see the full size promo shot!
As we predicted last night, the fifth TFSS 2 shipment contained Chromedome with Stylor Arms Micron, and as usual Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna has brought us our first look at the figures in hand today via a flood of shots posted to his Twitter timeline. As usual, we've also transcribed the text of the bio card included, so keep reading for that and to see all the pictures!
With all the reveals for Subscription Service 3, some may have forgot briefly that the second subscription is still in progress. Today from Allspark's Powered Convoy we've gotten word that the fifth figure strongly believed to be Chromedome has begun shipping to subscribers. In general this means we'll have first photos to show you as soon as tomorrow, and secondary retailers should receive their supplies shortly after. This will leave only one further shipment, containing Rewind and the "mystery" "bonus" figure whose identity was leaked previously.
