    Hi everyone!

    Pete@Botcon just updated the Club boards with a message saying that Blitzwing Bop, the next prose story, will be released on 11/17/09. Also, he's provided a preview picture if you log in! :D 

    Also posted was a small message that the next issue of the Club magazine will have three announcements in it.

    He also posted that some news as well as a preview of the new issue will be going up around either the 23rd or 24th of the month! :D 

    I'm really looking forward to reading the new story, and also hoping we learn who the other new Club exclusives will be! :D

    Yep! The preview picture on the Club site shows what Shattered Glass Blitzwing looks like, as well as Shattered Glass Blaster. :)  Though, I'm not certain what Blitzwing's paint job is a reference to. I thought it might be Warpath, though, I'm probably wrong.

    Are they just based of their GI bodies or something different?

    They're only shown in robot mode, and they both still have have G1-styled forms, with different paint jobs: Blitzwing is in red and grey, while Blaster is in something of a copper tone, with white and gunmetal blue as secondary colors. Blaster's chest is done in an ice blue, must like the kind used in my signature and avatar. I'm pretty certain that Blaster's been seen before in artwork from one of the other Shattered Glass stories, though, I think Blitzwing's completely new. :) 

    Though, Blitzwing does look a little different from the original version. I'm not certain if that's because he's based off of a particular design, or if it's simply the artist's style. Either way, I like both designs. :)

    Your welcome! :)  I can't wait to read the story either!

    I just wish that the Club could make all the great designs they come up with into toys. :(  I'd be more than happy to purchase a heroic Blitzwing!

    I never thought of Broadside, that could be easily be it! :) 

    I'm still trying to figure out Blaster too. Though, he could be another one who's not based on any particular pre-existing design but rather an idea, like Shattered Glass Ratchet's paint being based on green medical uniforms......

    I have no idea what Blaster's colors are based on, either. But Greg Sepelak and Trent Troop are TF super-ultra-mega-gurus, I'm sure it's based on something obscure.

    Great news, regardless.
