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.

Members of the otherwise-defunct Collectors Club today have received a new update about TFSS 5. The final subscription set which was originally planned to be delivered in advance of the Club's license elapsing at the end of December 2016 is now expected to begin shipping to subscribers in March, at the earliest. The message regarding this latest delay cites the failure of the cargo vessel to depart before Chinese New Year as a contributing factor. You can find the full text of the latest update quoted below.
