    Actually, it is the second story set in Axiom Nexus. How is Bugbite there? You have to read to find out...

    "Withered Hope" now online, club members!

    Previewed in the previous fanclub magazine, the illustrated Transtech text story "Withered Hope" is now online at the Transformers Collectors' Club website! It's brought to us by the same team that put together the club's free-to-all Unicron Trilogy "Force of Habit" story; the dynamic dialoguing duo of Greg "M Sipher" Sepelak and S Trent Troop bring the wondrous wordage, while their visions are voraciously visualized by the vivacious Matt "Jackpot" Kuphaldt!

    What does this story hold for us? Well, I'll only say that Small Foot's appearance in the preview was not a coincidence - just the tip of the iceberg! - and that some points from 2007's Games of Decepticon story are built on!

    Now go! Excelsior!

    I've just finished reading it, and I really enjoyed it! A few things puzzle me though.

    1. Who was Crystal Widow so depressed over?

    2. What was Airazor so upset about at the end of the story?

    3. Is Transtech Optimus Prime aware of Megatron and Shockwave's holding Breakaway captive?

    4. How many other Beast Wars characters are holding key offices?

    5. Why wasn't Nightbeat named Nightbeat? Did I possibly misread that part?

    Anyway, I'll be looking forward to seeing the next story! :D

    1. A lady has to have her secrets.

    2. Apparently, the tab she had was sizable.

    3. I'm not sure. Only Forrest, and Prime, I guess, knows for sure.

    4. More than a few by a lot.

    5. Easter eggs are no fun unless they're hidden.

    This is a members-only story and there are a lot more of them on the way.

    How do you screw up a Transtech 'universe' where just about anything is possible?

    Anyway, great story! Hope to see more Gobot stories in the future and more information and background on Crystal Widow. More of the TF Univerese characters should get an appearance too. I was actually cheering for the Gobots! The ehobby Minibots will always have a place of honor in my collection. Will wonders never end? :lol

    Thanks for answering my questions! :D  Also, it was nice to meet you at the convention! :D  I just couldn't figure out that line that went "A look of defeat crossed Airazor's face." It never occurred to me that she was trying to get out of her tab! :lol  That joke was very subtle! :lol 

    I'd like to also compliment you for making Cheetor so intelligent in these stories. It was a rather refreshing change, and I enjoyed the way he "fixed" the entire situation so neither he, Airazor, or Widow and the Minibots got into trouble! :lol 

    Thanks for writing all these stories, and I'll be looking forward to the next one! :D

    Man, I need to renew my membership. I really enjoyed the last Transtech story too. I knew the GoBots would be in the next one, but I didn't know it'd be out so soon. I'm hoping for more GoBots in the future.

    I believe he is upset we didn't set Transtech after the "tentative" and only "proposed" Post-Beast Machines era. Though as I have said numerous times, since a Post-Beast Machines story has already been told we did not want to follow the original "proposal".

    And to be honest, even if one had not been told, with the way the story has worked out, I so much more prefer this official story for them. It has led to some very cool characterizations of these Transtech Autobots and Decepticons plus it has also led to some very cool Prose stories...

    I, Lowtech is going to we wild but dark...I think people will really dig the final TT Prose story as well...

    I don't know if this is the proper place to ask but is TFC going to do any minibot exclusives?
