    You won't be able to buy it directly, but the chances are good someone will still sell it on eBay or something.

    Thaaaat's not how TFWiki works? If it were written by the original Animated cartoon writers, then it might get an article as apocrypha. But not a pure fan-comic like this.

    10 years later and Sentinel is still the biggest jerk out there.

    Just look at him, he even stole Starscream's shoulder pads from his coronation. :lol

    Anyways, I would absolutely love to have this, but I'll probably never own it. :(

    I'd really like to read this, but I can't attend and won't pay whatever absurd prices it'll go for on ebay. Still, it's basically just fanfiction and considering how critical I can be, it's possible I wouldn't even enjoy it. I'll easily live without it.

    I can\'t attend and probably can\'t afford the secondhand price, but I\'d be willing to pay for a pdf or cbz of it. Hopefully, there will be a way for me to get my hands on it.

    This made my day. My childhood prayers have been answered!

    Hope I can find it despite the "convention exclusive" doo-doo.

    EDIT: Ok, so it's technically a high profile fan-fic. And it will probably cost me an arm and a leg. Maybe I'll get lucky and find it cheap? Or just read the inevitable TFWiki summary.

    Being unofficial, the biggest issue (other than being a limited convention exclusive) is that it can be easily rendered obsolete should Hasbro (via IDW or whatever replaces the club) decide to do an official Animated continuation (unlikely but not impossible).

    Might I offer a suggestion for a figure...?

    Since it's not official anyway... maybe they can grab a few IF Windblade figures, and either retool with the Sari Sumdac head or offer a small class to customize it? IDK...

    Well TFA Sentinel's pretty much the Autobot Starscream so it's more then fitting when you get down to it. lol

    Now I want to see this happen.

    It's written by one of the Almanac creators too though, so it has some credence.

    Great news. But with all that effort, why make it an exclusive?

    So, Marty Isenberg isn't involved?

    That kinda cools my excitement but it's still very interesting.

    I'm interested but...it's still considered 'unofficial' right? It's all written from speculation of what would happen based on the list of plot ideas given out for Season 4?

    Where and when is this convention might I ask...I haven't been to a TF convention since Botcon years ago XP

    EDIT: nevermind I'm an idiot who didn't see the date and place given XD
    UK?...umm I'm afraid of flying so...yeah that sucks lol

    Hey guys! Stopping in to answer a few questions and make some stuff clear. This is an entirely unofficial product. It is not endorsed by Hasbro, and is wholly non-profit. Jim and I came up with this story a few years ago while chatting; our approach to it was "What if Animated got to come back for one direct-to-DVD three-episode movie to wrap things up?" I'd casually mentioned it to some friends at TFN in the past, and this year, they approached us to create it in full as a 'con exclusive, in celebration of TFA's 10th anniversary. This is why it's being made for the convention - it wouldn't exist without it. It combines some of the ideas that would have appeared in season 4 into an original story, and we've worked hard to match the tone and content of the show, and the whole package is produced to a professional standard, but it is a pure by-fans, for-fans endeavour that we hope you'll enjoy.

    Unofficial or not, the real question is how much of it will references and how much will be original ideas.

    It does, it falls in that weird category like Furman's unfinished Energon comic scrips, and it's existence will be mentioned in the TFwiki I'm sure just not treated as official anything and only as what could have been.


    It was TFN's idea to actually make the thing and give it out there. And they probably couldn't afford to make a massive print run for something that isn't going to be making them any money.



    That should explain it all, thank you.

    I'd love to be able to read this graphic novel, because it's Animated. I have my own head canon on how I would have liked to seen the show end. To see how other fellow fans put to paper their own head canon,would be amazing.

    Unfortunately, I can't afford to be flying off to the UK from the USA,anytime soon. Hopefully,someone who's lucky enough to get a copy, will kindly share with the rest of us.......pretty please? :)
