    Hello everyone,

    The Transformers Collector's Club has announced on their front page that on the third of April they will put up a 3-page preview of the Botcon comic!

    They've also stated that another guest will be announced this week as well!

    Their announcement is located here:

    http://transformersclub.com/

    They also have a picture up too, but I'm not certain if it is from the comic or not.

    My guess is that's Evil Optimus Prime, with the built-in brass knuckles on his hand. :D

    Interesting, the comic panel looks as if it could have been lifted right out of a G2 comic. Not my favorite style of TF art, but it does look good as it is.

    It could be, but when I think about it, it could also be Jazz or Riccochet, each of whom also have black painted hands. I'm not sure whether it could be Goldbug or not though, seeing as he has the rocket-launchers next to his hands. Either way, I can't wait to see the preview! :D

    Interesting. Do we know who's on art? They've definitely aped the style of Derek Yaniger/Manny Galan during the G2 run quite well.

    Also, not to sound like a tool, but do we have to steal the club's thunder like this all the time? They've worked really hard getting all this ready for us, and we don't even let them surprise us with it. Would three days for that preview have killed anyone?

    I wouldn't be surprised if the art was indeed done by Galan or Yaniger. Pretty neat.

    Too bad the pages are sorta leaked now in a weird way.

    Quintesson Federation?!

    The five faced eggheads are good guys?!

    Wait does this mean they're the equivalent of the council of ancient/elders in this universe?
