Attendees

Pete Sinclair - Marketing and Magazine
Brian Savage - Senior Manager
Lanny Lantham - Graphic Design

Showing deisgns of stika, hoist, Megaplex, Skaywarp, Obsidian, Sandstorm, Electron, Mirage, Thundercraker, Hotlink, Sunstorm, Bitstream, Starscream

Designs are sent to China for manufacturing. Describes using PMS colors for making plastic pigments.

Starscream was the mold that gave them the idea to do MW Starscream and then they got the idea to do a whole MW theme. Decided to do a cohesive scaled set.

Faction graphics were remade to give military slant.

Mold chars show solid color of each part, The sheet maps which part is on the same mold tree based on the same color and type of plastic. These things dictate what can and cannot be done based on the molds and colors.

2013 Tech Spec Art

Sometimes things happen in an organic out of the blue. They looked for a style that would work after the Wings of Honor look. Looking for a MW artist, they found Josh Burcham. Who was brought in to do some tech spec art then the comic was handed over when the other artist could not complete the comic. Cover was done by Marcelo Matre.

They forgot to add the "To be continued..." but it will have another Diamond edition that will released.

The MW inspiration for the box window on the Con set. Showing different versions of the box art pre-window.

Dan Kahana did some of the robot art.

KBToys faux price sticker was Pete's idea. They checked out the old KB stickers and made a facsimile just like the KB with price strike out and all.

Convention pin as put inside the box wo they didn't have to put it on the box.

Next Year's figure will have a new head. Rampage incentive figure. From Protoform X megatron as Rampage.

There will be a club exclusive like runabout and drift. Transmutate!!!! Based on 1st edition Arcee Prime mold. Will have a back story comic to go with it to show who Transmutate would have been. Rampage will have some sense of humanity. Box will be a 2-pack with space for both toys.

TFSS 2.0 Figures will be formally

They decided to go with a thematic theme.

Chromedome using Prime Wheeljack deluxe mold
Treadshot using the Warpath Generations mold
Ironfist using the Swindle / Roabuster mold from the Fall Of Cybertron mold

Once they get the new web site launched, the new system will allow them to run the TFSS and BotCon services properly.

So, uh, what the heck? We got a good firsthand look at all the souvenir figures the Transformers Collector's Club offered at BotCon 2016, and there was no sign of a Bluestreak. But here, off of Chinese Auction Site TaoBao, is that very figure. What's up with that? No idea, but you can get a look at the figure by clicking through to see the images!
Windsweeper is an update to the old G1 Triggercon. Unfortunately it uses one of the most overused molds of Combiner Wars; thus out of box, Windsweeper is a floppy mess. Thankfully the figure is meant to be a leg, and holds together in that form. If you're completing Thunder Mayhem Windsweeper is a necessary evil; if you're a die-hard Triggercon collector, you can pass on this figure.
As it has been so many times before, we have Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna to thank for bringing us excellent photos of the latest TFSS figure beginning to ship out now. Windsweeper is number four - unsurprisingly - and finishes out the limb robots for Thunder Mayhem. Also included is a surprisingly beautiful Creation Matrix accessory! You can have a look at the new figure for yourself in the album of mirrored photos below.
It's that time again for the latest addition to the TFCC FSS 4.0; and it's the near legendary, Spinister. Let me just say this is my favorite FSS figure thus far and the best use of the Alpha Bravo mold. The joints are just the right tightness especially in the hips, which is important for arm mode. Being a Double Targetmaster, Spinister is armed; Vortex should've had this load out. Prepare to pay if you're looking for this figure on the aftermarket; as I suspect it'll be one of, if not the most expensive from this collection.
With our thanks as always to John DeLuna from Radio Free Cybertron, we've got a great many excellent photos to share of the now-shipping third entry in TFSS 4 - Spinister. Yet another redeco of the Alpha Bravo mold, surely the unmatched workhorse mold of the Combiner Wars line, Spinister also comes with redecos of Generations Scoop's pair of Targetmaster partners. We've got good looks at both modes, the bio card and accessories, so keep reading and check it all out!
