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.

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!
John DeLuna from Radio Free Cybertron is once more bringing us our very first look at the newly shipped Transformers Figure Subscription Service 4 toy! No surprise here as the final figure of the batch, it's Impactor! And we have lots of nice pictures showing it off, along with the pile of accessories seemingly randomly borrowed from Generations Arcee. Get a close look at the new headsculpt and the deco, plus see a shot of the bio card - click through to find it all in the gallery below!
Thanks as ever to John DeLuna of Radio Free Cybertron who has done his usual excellent job in providing photographic coverage of a new fresh release from the Collectors Club. Armada Skywarp is this year's club store exclusive, reusing the new tooling from the membership freebie Universe Ramjet. This fills out the Armada Seeker trio alongside Hasbro or TakaraTomy Starscream and Legends Series TakaraTomy Starscream Super Mode (AKA Thundercraker). We've got a nice selection of photos for you to enjoy, so keep reading and get started!
Once again thanks to John DeLuna, we have some nice in hand shots of the finished Thunder Mayhem combiner. The photos show some basic overviews of the combined form, plus armed with the large swords. We get up close detail shots of the Thunder Mayhem head as well, showing off the quality level of its sculpting and the way it fits in to the style of the rest of the toy. To see photos of Bludgeon solo, check out the earlier post here. Keep reading for the Thunder Mayhem gallery!
Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna has gotten his Subscription Service Bludgeon! As is customary, John is posting a ton of high-quality pictures of the figure, a remold of Combiner Wars Voyager Class Onslaught with new weapons, head, and combiner head. Keep reading to see!
