The Official TransFormers Collector's Club has put up a pdf-file on their site containing a recent press release from Hasbro in regards to Transformers ToothTunes. The gimmick of the ToothTune Toothbrush is that music plays while you brush your teeth. According the the release, the Toothtune will be set at a retail price of $9.99.
Seibertron's own waaaaghlord reports the following:
Pete from the TCC has announced on the club boards which direction the club comic is going to take following the current (post Marvel) Classics arc. While I can't quote directly from the club boards Pete has been kind enough to let members report in broad terms what's coming up to the wider community. And Transtech is it.
This will apparently be a different take to the original post Beast Machines concept, since the Universe comics have already covered the post BM era. Since the club comics have been focusing on the club combiner figures and hopping between realities it's fair to assume that this will in fact be a totally new TF continuity within the broader scope of Timelines. The Transtech name is apparently not being used for the project, what name they are going with is not known as yet.
It's been seven years coming but it looks like the TT designs are finally going to get their day in the sun.
Looks like interesting times ahead for Transformers fans, with Botcon adding a twist to next years toys, and now the TCC reviving Transtech in Comic form.

It seems the new issue of Master Collector contains another hint that the Universe Seacon repaints will indeed finally find a home with the Transformers Collector's Club. TFW2005 member Beastbot X received a copy in the mail and says that an image of Piranacon repaint graces the cover of the issue, in his Universe colour scheme - Here's what Beastbot X had to say:
Beastbot X :
I received my latest issue of Master Collector today, and though it's an "off month" (meaning no magazine is inside), on the front cover of the Master Collector is a picture of Universe Pirahnacon, in his exact Universe colors (as far as I can tell-- if there's any changes, they're really, really minor).
So just in case there was any doubt that we were getting the Seacons as a Club Exclusive or that they'd be in their Universe color scheme, there ya go.
The new collector's club magazine (#17) has begun arriving at mailboxes across the country. Here are some highlights:
