    I have received my latest issue of TFCC Magazine. Here is a breakdown of things I'm finding:

    Brian's column covers the next club figure and encourages all to have membership current by March 16th. The better portion of the column rehashes the known BotCon information. He states that the convention figures will be on BotCon.com as soon as they receive the final samples from China. His words are "this year's set is one you will definitely want to add to your collection!"

    Animated Tech Specs this month are for Wheeljack and Laserbeak. Wheeljack's references him working under Perceptor's supervision and his involvement with these two projects - Omega and Safeguard.

    A small article with Bob Prupis, the former Hasbro VP of Boys' Toys Marketing for the Generation 1 toy line. He discusses how it was introduced from Diaclones, which were brought to Hasbro by toy designer Henry Ornstein.

    Bio pages for Transtech Blackarachnia, Topspin (the club figure), and Shatteredverse Whisper. Blackarachnia and Topspin are in allegiance with Alpha Trion (the club comic one). Whisper, though partnered with Sideswipe, is not a Mini-Con but rather a Micromaster.

    And now for the best part...

    The club comic starts out with Skyfall, Lanquake, Breakaway, & Topspin in a lair under Alpha Trion's control. Lanquake pressures Alpha Trion into explaining what happened to Skyfall (last issue). Shatteredverse Downshift (the G1 Omnibot) discovers the lair before Alpha Trion cuts him down. Before long a whole load of characters in allegiance with Alpha Trion are introduced. Namely Blackarachnia, along with several from G1 sporting excellent Shatteredverse colors. Sky Lynx is present, Perceptor is in black, Kickback has some interesting colors, and Scattorshot looks to have the colors of normalverse G1 Hun-Grrr. Dirge, in Classics mold, has all yellow color which reminds me of Beast Wars Second Thrust.

    Enjoy the reading!

    He serves as an espionage agent for Soundwave and uses sound as a weapon. In guitar mode he amplifies Soundwave's automoton controlling signals.


    Drew, what art pieces are yours? There wasn't much room in this issue.

    Thanks for the summary. It'll give me something to read while I wait the month and a half it'll take for my copy to reach me. :lol

    I'm looking forward to it but some of the summary seems spoilerish to me. Not looking to start a fight but could a spoiler warning be put into place next time?

    I agree! Pretty much my whole summary was put up on the front page.


    Wheeljack - "If I build it, the Decepticons will run."

    Laserbeak - "Raaaaaaawk!"

    Eh, can't say I didn't see that coming with the Shattered Glass Universe in the club comic. Frankly, don't know if I'll be joining again this year... the comic was one of the main draws for me and... it's just been very boring for the past year and considering that I've never liked the idea behind the Shattered Glass Universe... well, looks like I've got another $62 to spend on new Transformers this year.

    Bios for Animated sound interesting though... still not sure it's enough to keep me around.
