So anyone read it? Anyone want to give a synopsis?
Okay, so I'll start with a synopsis.
The story this year is called "Hardworker".
p1. The cover is a piece of art of Shafter and Garrison striking a pose for the camera.
p2-3 of the comic are the program for TFcon 2012.
p4 - Extended bios for Shafter and Garrison. One thing I noticed is that although they have tech spec meters, they just copied them from the ones from 2011's Stronghold. I wish they had drawn original tech spec meters.
p5 - The evil Destron Anarchy (the TransformersCon 2006 exclusive Hard Hero metallic Cyclonus bust) has dumped a group of Seibertron warriors through a portal and they crash on Earth - specifically in a desert on of the Earth of the Masterforce Wars! The Autobo... I mean "Seibertron Warriors" include Powered Convoy, Flamethrower and Stronghold (TFcon exclusives) as well as Flash, Downshift, Hurricane and REV (TFcon customizing class figures).
p6 - As the warriors try to figure out where they are, nearby the Grando Battleship lands (Grand Maximus) with Garrison inside. He has plans to deliver the Godbomber designs to the head of the Seibertron Warriors on Earth and also warn them that Black Zarak is coming to Earth.
p7 - Garrison is attacked by the Destron warrior Shadow Bat. He tries to activate his Pretender upgrade, but it fails, so he instead upgrades to Headmaster (he starts as the US Animated Garrison head, but becomes the toy accurate one).
p8 - Garrison connects with his Transtector Heat (Hosehead with white highlights). Shadow Bat attacks him by nearly impaling him with his "sword mode", when a shot from an unseen ally saves Garrison.
p9 - It's Shafter! He's there to save Garrison from Shadow Bat and make erection jokes, which he does!
p10 - As Shafter is helping Garrison to recover from the battle, the time-lost group of Warriors lead by Powered Commander arrive, saying they are lost.
TO BE CONTINUED!
From what I hear TFcon is working to unite its characters and old one-shot stories into a continuing story. So this actually will be continued. I'm not sure if their use of the Japanese names and factions is an attempt to keep away from Hasbro IP, or just because they are in the Masterforce setting. The characters with Hasbro names are never mentioned BY NAME, and I don't think we ever see faction symbols in the comic.
Separate names with a comma.
