BotCon 2008 - Transformers Club Panel Live Report
Primus - Saturday, April 26, 2008

TCC Year 4 - Panel: Pete Sinclair, Lanny Latham, Ben Yee, Forest Lee, Tret Troop

+ Transtech Comic for year 4 with Alex Milne on art. This is basically a big commercial for getting people to join the club.

+ 3 stories will be offered. "Gone to far" starring jackpot and hubcap. "Withered hope"- the gobots returned and "I, Lowtech" with Nick Roche on art.

+ The TCC magazine is now online with Profiles, mini-mayhem, Mac cops, Contests, club boards and "Me Grimlock" Fan Pub Comics.

+ Title for this year is "Shattered Glass" - the comic for the convention written by Ben Yee.

+ They used the original Marvel 4-issue series as the basis and wanted to have fun with it.

+ They are limited to what sculpts they can use so they have to get creative.

, + They enjoy feedback and constructive criticism so they can improve, cause this is a work in progress.

+ Shatteredverse Pros Fiction - since there was a huge response from that april fools comic. "Dungeons and Grimlock" will be the first issue.

+ More Shattered - 3 shattered Prose Fiction stories. Shattered Club Exclusive is coming.

+ "Me Grimlock" has been replaced by "I Grimlock."

+ The Nightbeat comic is in limbo. Might be a pack in comic with the Nightbeat club exclusive.

+ Issue 22 of the club mag will have two pages of profiles that deal with the Nightbeat story

+ A story for the Seacons is up in the air.

+ After Transtech they may be going to Shattered Universe.

+ Might see a clean shaven Scourge in Shattered Universe show up, drawn by Don Figueroa.

+ Will we see a "Crisis On Infinite Cybertron" with Transtech. The Axiom Nexus was sorta a setup for that type concept. So short answer is yes. (translation, they basically stole the idea from DC Comics Crisis On Infinite Earths storyline)

+ There isn't an actual "Crisis on Infinite Cybertron" story coming. thats just what the fan called this Nexus/Transtech stuff.

+ They say the club doubled the number of members since last year. Now they are asking for members to get a friend a join, as a bigger club they can do more.

+ Page count of the magazine is based on printer issues in batches of 16 pages. They use an American printer, so to do more pages costs more. The more members, the more they can offset the cost.

Yet another Hasbro Fan media event is behind us at Toy Fair. From this we have lots of photos of current and upcoming toys to obsess over, as we do every year. But that's simply the obvious, most easily visible takeaway from the presentation. But we learn more than that, so it's time to look back over the day and sort out the larger scope of information we've been given from what is arguably our biggest single day of reveals for the whole year. Keep reading!
The smallest gallery to share is that for the standard Masterpiece line. The newest entrant shown is the MP-17+ Prowl featuring animation-inspired deco and which it seems is due to get a same-month release by Hasbro going by indications from some of the US retailers. Also out at the show were Shadow Panther, with a copy of Cheetor out as a point of comparison. And rounding out the upcoming product was Dinobot, making most things around it look small. It seems that several other items were included in the display, but in the form of exclusives and other long-since released products to represent the line. You can check out the photos of the newer products below.
Wonderfest managed to diverge a bit from Toy Fair's presentation this year in the movie product on hand. While the Studio Series line was on full display matching Hasbro's reveal, a few of this year's Movie The Best products were out in the exhibit space too - though it's probably not too unfair to say some of them were rightly outclassed by their brand new Studio counterparts. We also get to see a little bit of Move Masterpiece among these toys, resulting in the movie offerings for this year being nicely represented. Click through to check them out!
Wonderfest is happening in Japan right now. The one day event falls just hours after the first day of Toy fair in New York, and on the Transformers side, and consistent with our earlier speculation much the same lineup of products were on display, albeit with subtle differences. Unfortunately in Power of The Primes those differences are limited to the state of finish of the various items shown, rather than things like actual deco choices. For instance, grey prototypes of Optimal Optimus and Predaking versus color versions. Click through to see these and more!
The images are still rolling out of Toy Fair 2018. Here, we have even more Transformers showroom images featuring the mighty PREDAKING, and more. Keep checking back for more coverage from Toy Fair 2018.
