    About damn time! Sad that they're combining 2016 and 2017... They used to do 2-3 books a year when they started...

    Thanks for the heads up chief! For some reason I was have quite abit of trouble locating that one.

    I really am looking forward to the 2016 one though. Hopefully we get another short comic full of MP goodness.

    Here’s hoping we not only get a cool retrospective Beast Wars toy section, like they did with RiD last year, but also some kickass Beast Wars art for the cover. And if they chose to make the comic about the Beast Wars MP’s too I won't complain ;)

    I'm holding off on preordering for now. I want to find out who the mail away figure is. If it's something I want, I'm better off getting the book at BBTS, since it's only $10 more than the standalone figure.

    I would be mad too but yet I'd still get it to go with my United Stepper and Artfire. :lol 

    The front page is speculating it might be BW related. Would be interesting if it ends up being Megaligator to compliment the upcoming Convobat release.

    My main guess is that they will involve Transformers Legends and Beast Wars. And that they will also discuss both Headmasters and Targetmasters, since both turn 30 in 2017.

    As for the exclusive figure... Hmmm... My hope is that they will make a Headmaster version of Nautica. But we shall who stars in their main manga when the time comes. :)

    Considering she was the first female transformer toy and with TT's love for fembots, I wouldn't give up hope yet.

    I hope the exclusive toy will be Megalligator so he can go with Convobat.

    BBTS will likely have them available for $99 and will include the book and figure
