    Found today at Official Transformers Collectors Club Website the magazine cover (featuring some cosplayers) and the contents description:

    This month we focus on a recap of BotCon 2012. If you were at the show, a great review and if you weren't, a very cool extended glimpse at what BotCon is all about. We also spotlight two more MTMTE profiles, Windbreaker and Flamefeather, showcase our final 2012 installment of the Allspark Almanac Addendum and in the current comic story "A Flash Forward", the master plan of the Cybertronian known as "Jhiaxus" is finally revealed!

    Sad to see the "final 2012 installment of Allspark Almanac Addendum" in that paragraph :( . I had hopes to see the Addendum much more times.

    i still haven't received the last issue, but knowing how they fucked up shipping sg drift, that issue is long gone

    and if that is the final cover, kind of pissed the way they are showing the costumes off there, they said all 3 won, and to have swoop mainly featured and you barely see miraibaby's awesome breakdown or that awesome animated blitzwing, that's bullshit

    That Swoop is terrifying, and it's absolute bullshit that it's the one taking up the majority of the cover. Know who belongs on that cover with Breakdown and Blitzwing? That little kid who was cosplaying as Optimus Prime in a really awesome costume. If the kid couldnt be on the cover with them, then it should have been ONLY Breakdown and Blitzwing.

    This "magazine" is just about worthless. It is not even a magazine really, more of the lenghth and size of a comic book. And most of it is a comic book. Four of these a year and a figure is not worth it. The only thing that made it worth it was the fact i sold my Runamuck figure for almost 2x what I paid for the membership. But, since next years figure has been revealed and is lame I will not rejoin. As a matter of fact they could cancel myy "membership" now and I would have not even noticed.

    Hmm, I still never got issue 43. Well, to be fair, I never got any of them from my membership purchase until I emailed them about that..they sent out issues 41 and 42..and then I never heard from them or got anything else (except for the figures) since..This membership thing is FUN!

    Well I'm looking forward to receiving this in the mail. I've been reading my friends copy every few months for years since they started, this will be my first issue since joining!

    yeah i felt the same, even the comic is woefully short, only about 10 pages, then it's filled with irrelevant interview, some obscure characters bios using color swaps of newer molds, random 4 panel comics of some g1 characters that are usually not funny, and ads.

    it's like they're not even trying any more, sure we've all seen new products reveals from the botcon/comiccon panels, but it can drastically improve the megazine if they can get high res pictures from hasbro showcasing the new products and their own upcoming memb figures, and more relevant information about the transformers franchise/shows/media/industry, translated interviews of japanese designers, or even just inputs from members/fan like cosplay/arts/customs whatever.
