The newest issue of the TFCC magazine arrived today in my mailbox. While there aren't any "big" news items, there's a few new/interesting tidbits that I felt you guys might want to know about: Cover: Stock photos of some of the Power Core Combiners that we've already seen. Page 2: Usual intro stuff. The Botcon registration system is being developed with "EventMan.com", so it looks like it's not entirely TFCC-based. MCAX.com was held back a bit so this could be finished, so it looks indeed like unless something goes majorly wrong, we'll have online reg this year. Page 3: Interview with Derrick Wyatt. Another all-but-confirmation we'll see unused Season 4 stuff in the Allspark Almanac Volume 2. (He really wanted to introduce more Dinobots and Constructicons.) Page 4-5: Hasbro Interview about Power Core Combiners. Apparently in Fall of 2010 we'll get 9 different 2-packs and 6 different 5 packs, so there's still some coming out this year that we don't know about. They said that "just counting the combos by switching out the commander figure", you'll be able to make 90 different combos in total. They are incorporating PCCs into "future fiction" and "developing a significant amount of product for this new segment". A in-universe background story is also given about the PCCs-- basically they allow TFs to become gestalts without sacrificing their minds in the process, allowing for smarter, better gestalts. Page 6-7: Profiles for High Council member Magnum (in some ways a combination of both Powered Commander, Ultra Magnus, and Animated Ultra Magnus). Also a profile for Over-Run, based on the Energon Bulkhead toy that we've already seen in the club comic preview for this issue. Page 8: Transformers: 2010 Part 2-- a look at incredibly detailed artwork for Trypticon. Page 9: A look back at previous Botcon exclusives. Page 10-15: Comic. *SPOILERS* Lots of background cameos. However, fans might be most excited to know "Sentinel Major"-- a more realisticaly-proportioned Animated Sentinel Prime-- is now a character in this. Also, it looks like here the Combaticons are originally elite guard members. *END SPOILERS* Page 16:Around Cybertron, Fan Art of Aureus by Rodimus Zero, bio for Snowblind (Japanese-exclusive Armada Runway redeco).
