Transformers Botcon 2014 Convention Taken Hostage By Pirates?

By BaCon on Monday, January 06, 2014

Ahoy Matey! Shiver me Timbers! TFW Member D-Drive shared an image from the Transformers Timelines #8: Termination comic that reveals BotCon 2014 may be sporting a Pirates theme this year. The gang over at FunPub like to get creative with their ideas and this one is a bit off the charts, as usual. It will remain to be seen how they configure Cybertron Canonball and the many other molds and color schemes to outfit their BotCon Armada that will be coming to Pasedena, CA June 19-22, 2014.ARGHhhhh!
They sailed across the inky-black where the heavens can't be found No light could show, no wind could blow, no soul could make a sound Yet each mech aboard, garbed for war, holding a cutlass or a gun and from the spotter above came the sign - We found Cybertron!

With all of the good molds this past year, I'm worried they'll be used for BotCon and I'll want to buy a set.

Following the BotCon 2014 news of the Pirates theme this year.

More Collectors Club News
The Transformers Collectors Club Facebook page has been updated with the character art for the remaining four figures, after Bludgeon and Impactor had their art revealed earlier this year. Produced by Marcelo Matere and Josh Perez, this art is surely bound for bio cards when the figures hit production next year. Also of note in this reveal, Ruckus has had to adopt the new name "Grabuge", a French word that effectively means "ruckus". Keep reading to check out all four pieces of art.
The Transformers Collectors' Club has revealed the last figure from the Dawn Of The Predacus boxset: Sea Clamp. As the center of the combiner, Sea Clamp uses the Scattershot variation of the Combiner Wars Voyager Class Silverbolt mold in some very Scattershot-like colors. The only thing left to reveal is the very red combiner form itself, which is said to have a new head mold as well. Keep reading to see Sea Clamp!
Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna is almost always in the lead when it comes to receiving new figures from the Collector's Club, and today is no exception. John has gotten the final TFSS shipment for this cycle, known already to be Krok. Shipped together with it is the "mystery bonus" figure, this time a Generations Legends mold. Thanks to John we have lots of photos of both. We won't disclose the identity of the extra figure here, but you can of course keep reading to see both figures and find out who Krok is bundled with!
Forums member Tambeyoda has shared with us his video review for G2 Starscream, the latest shipped figure from the third Figure Subscription Service set. While the Club warned members that these figures would arrive misassembled with no help to be offered, Tambeyoda seems to be among a lucky few who received correctly assembled figures. Keep reading to check out the embedded video and get a good look at the figure in both modes.
Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna is bringing us another great look at the newest shipped piece from the third Transformers Figure Subscription Service, Classics G2 Starscream. This figure is the subject of a misassembly warning issued recently, the result being that the wings can't properly be folded without risk of breaking the toy, and no replacement will be made. This aside, the G2 look has been captured well, and this is supposedly the final outing from the Club for this mold. Click through to check out the photos!
