    I received my issue today. Here is a quick rundown of the contents:

    • Botcon Hoist on the cover- Mentioned as part of 5 figure set
    • Start of the Beast Was: Shattered Glass Story line
    • Discussion about the FSS 1.0 shipment delay. As soon as shipment arrives, they will advise us of second payment date.
    • Profiles of Prime & Depth Charge (Free 2013 figure)
    • Mention of a project with Jim Sorenson (Awesome!)
    • Mention of a replacement forum for members/ May see in February
    • Great overview of the Classicverse stories from 2007-2012
    • Article by fan Jeremiah McNatt on his trip as a fan to Japan
    • Transformers I.Q. , Recordicons, and a quick article on cassette technology

    Also, if it has not been mentioned, the Botcon site has a minor update with 2013 and Hoist from the set.

    "Recordicons"

    They give those things a new name every year.

    Since 1986

    For what it's worth, I like that name the best for them. Doesn't hinge on them being cassettes (in the case of the FoC data-disks, say), plus it flows better than "Casseticons".

    We need a shattered glass of Funpub set. They could use G.I.Joes and redco them as Pete sinclair, brian savage, and so on..

    If I remember correctly, it was not much more than the preview we saw. With that said, I am with you and looking forward to this story.

    Good info, hate the mailing. Can't they just send us a PDF or something?

    If anyone going to Botcon this year has some friends and or family that would like to go and doesn't want the toys, let me know. Doesn't look like I'll be able to make it as that weekend falls on my 1st Anniversary with my wonderful wifey. I would need 2 sets and can cover the Primus package costs for 2 individuals. Also would need 2 sets of each of the Con add-ons.

    Thanks much~

    Hmm... Shattered Glass Beast Wars. Sounds cool, but I was hoping they would make Depthcharge out of the Thunderwing/Sky Shadow mold.

    Dumb question... Whatever happened to Punch/Counterpunch being in the club fiction? Pete said when he was announced he'd be in the following year's fiction, and nothing happened... Just curious if it was ever said what changed...

    I don't remember that announcement, although there are a number of club exclusives that have never (yet) gotten fiction. I seem to recall a promise that we'd get something for SG Cyclonus (post-rise of SG Galvatron), which has never happened either. But I don't think I could find evidence that such a promise was made. Maybe I'm misremembering based on wishful thinking?

    Found that. I can't find the PCP message... I could swear it was said though... Ah well...

    Their site looks like it fell out of the Geocities era of the internet... PDFs would be "too modern" and "complex."

    I am the only one curious about this project?

    I like the physical magazines. But I would really like to have a PDF and can read the magazine while people are talking about it. Can't understand why they can't put the PDF in the members area (hey, they said the forums and members area will reborn from ashes, so the PDF could be there)

    They should have an option for non attendees where they ship the figure set to you. They had that last year. That's what I will be doing. Just won't get the freebie for going or have first crack at show exclusives.

    Beside Ultra Mammoth, Grimlock and Magnaboss, who else will appear in the SG Beast Wars. Any rumors?

    Thought of that, but want to get the attendee exclusives as well. I have a feeling they might throw in something odd as a show exclusive and those are the ones I've noticed I like the most; i.e. Slicer, Flamewar, Tigatron. I can just see that Grimlock from Universe Dinobot being one.
