    Bringing the news from the latest TF Collectors Club issue:

    Issue includes much of the coverage from BotCon.

    New Animated Tech Specs for Glyph and Dirt Boss.

    Further confirmation for Punch/Counterpunch as the new Club figure.

    Profiles include Shattered Glass Hound, Abominus, and Ratbat. Ratbat's profile lists his function as a "Motivational Speaker".

    Cliffjumper returns with an appearance in the comic. Heatwave is officially introduced to the rest of the Nexus Maximus team. Shattered Glass Cyclonus appears with a red and yellow color scheme. Get ready for the surprise upset with Cyclonus at the end of the comic!

    What color is Hound? And I take it Abominus is technobot colored?

    I love the club mag. Can't wait to get this. Too bad it only takes one trip to the can to read all of it though.

    I hope you all like Hound I put good effort into making him look awesome. It didn't hurt that Robby Musso did the lines though. :)

    :noob 
    Sorry for the noob questions, I'm thinking of becoming a TFCC member, but the club's site is a bit confusing. I want to pick up the Punch/Counterpunch figure but wasn't sure of the following:
    1. Is he the "free figure" or just one that members get a discount on
    2. When would he be released (ballpark)?
    3. How much lead time do I need? I.E. I see the free figure is only if you subscribe my March and that the on-going comic resets every year. So when should I become a member if I want to get the 6 2010 issues rather than, say, the Dec issue and 5 2010 issues?
    4. A bit OT, but any experiences/guesses as to if P/CP would go for +/- $40

    Thanks!

    1. The latter, but actually, ONLY members can purchase him. The non-member "price" includes membership.
    2. Late this year or very early 2010.
    3. That sort of varies depending on where you live and just what's going on that time of the year. I don't think a whole lot of lead time, but that'll be a question for the TFCC folks.
    4. Probably slightly more, but less than $50, going by previous experience.

    Only panel pic I saw was of Peter Cullen standing with Movie Bumblebee.

    Hound's form is taken from the Universe Classics version. His color seems to be a blend of the Universe color and and the tan from Detritus.

    Shatteredverse Abominus does have the Technobot colors. Computron just acts like such an overconfident buffoon.

    I know people don't like old threads being brought up, but my August magazine arrived YESTERDAY! So I think I'm justified in talking about it.

    Cover - The same picture seen at Botcon of the Punch/Counterpunch concept art.
    2 - Announcement that there are 100 Elita-1 and Razorclaw sets left in the store. Design a cover contest.
    3 - Animated Tech Specs for Glyph and Dirt Boss. Greg S. does a half page of Unicron Trilogy for dummies.
    4-5 Botcon review, pics of costumes and celebs.
    6 - SG Hound Bio, he's the Universe Deluxe Hound toy in olive green and brown with purple windshield. Pretends to be indifferent, but secretly is a revolutionary. Has worked for Ultra Magnus, Rodimus and Alpha Trion against Prime.
    7 - SG Abominus bio. He's an artist and phylosopher. G1 toy in Technobots colors.
    8 - SG Terrorcons bios (Hun-Grrr is a sophisticated mech, Cutthroat a businessman, Blot a psychologist, Rippernapper an actor, and Sinnertwin a puppeteer) and SG Ratbat (Tony Robbins motivational speaker, and a secret drunk).
    9 - Botcon pics and info continued.
    10-15 - Reunification continued. Computron attacks the club combiner limbs and the Quintesson. They run and he follows. Reflector observes. They run to the Decepticons and Abominus defends them. As DEATH CORBA send them into the headquarters they meet Megatron, Cliffjumper, Starscream and Cyclonus. They ask to see Heatwave, but when Heatwave walks in Cyclonus betrays them and shoots Megatron on a signal from Alpha Trion.
    16 - Around Cybertron has Rook reporting on the death of Megatron, as Optimus learns he won't be able to kill Megatron himself and bitches a fit. Rob pics ROTF Sideswipe as the hot toy. Mini-Mayhem has the AutoScout delivering a love survey to Blackarachnia from Soundwave.
