Head here to find out more, and find a snippet below.
Also included are two videos showing the new registration system (opening this Tuesday!), which have been embedded below.

Thanks to fellow Seibertronians Bounti76 and Megatronus for letting us know that the first figure from Transformers Collectors' Club subscription service 3.0 has started to arrive in mailboxes. Even better they sent us pics of the newly arrived figure. Bounti76 has Nova Prime unboxing the figure while Chromia looks on. The images that Megatronus sent us gives us another look at the figure as well as the Kre-O pieces that make up G.B. Blackrock and a laser blaster that converts to a gaspump. Check your mailboxes to see if Carzap with G.B. Blackrock is waiting for you too.
Seibertron native SW's SilverHammer has informed us all of a 3 page preview of the 2015 Botcon Box Set Comic! It includes the five new characters from this set, and cameos.... almost everyone else. Plus a certain shrouded fella who has yet to be revealed. Scroll down to see the preview and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your Transformers News!
Good news folks for those waiting on their TCC exclusive Lio Convoy, we just got word from Seibertron.com member Zomatron that he just got his in today! That means everyone should be receiving theirs in soon if you haven't gotten it already! Lio Convoy is a repaint of Generations Orion Pax with a new head. Check out the picture that Zomatron was kind enough to provide and remember keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates!
Via fiction aficionado and Seibertronian Sabrblade, we have the second part of BotCon/FunPub's comic 'Collections' (first part was posted here), featuring Packrat (the Thief) and his encounter with Waspinator Thrustinator. You can read it mirrored below, along with some clarification from Pete Sinclair and creator Jesse Wittenrich, via fellow fansite The Allspark.
Pete Sinclair wrote:The 'Collections' one shot takes place at some point after the Beast Wars. We haven't even defined what Universe this is from. One thing that seems to be the case, as you all know, is Beast Wars exists in many different timelines. This may be another timeline that has similar traits to the G1 toon continuity, Wings continuity or whatever other ones that are floating out there and contains Beast Wars but also contains one of these little stories that are specific to THAT timeline.
Jesse Wittenrich wrote:Yup. And a significant amount of time after the Beast Wars as well. The fighting took place across the entire planet, spreading parts and pieces everywhere. Including the bottom of an ocean *looks at Depth Charge's fin and Rampage's claw*. Packrat has spent a LONG time on his collection; he's picked up everything, not just the pile we see in one panel.
A couple of days ago we reported on BotCon's social media and fiction efforts via the Axiom Nexus news crew. What has made its appearance since is a more interactive page, also part of the same initiative for the 2015 event, under the name of Ask Vector Prime! Read on below to find out more about it, and head here to pose your own queries.
Vector Prime, one of our most venerable elders, answers some of your questions as a way to foster better understanding between Cybertronians and humans.
Via the official BotCon Twitter account, we get another preview at some of their comics fiction for this year's Cybertron Most Wanted cast of characters - specifically, the page shows a little insight into the role and past of the Thief, Packrat (with art, writing and everything else by Jesse Wittenrich). Check out the mirrored image from Collections below, and browse our very own Seibertron.com gallery of the toy right here!
To follow up from the previous news about an additional BotCon figure, showing the Generations Skids mold in a Trailcutter/breaker-esque / Diaclone Skids redeco, weibo user Lost-Zzl has added a small selection of higher quality photos of the figure. Check them out mirrored below, and let us know your thoughts in the Energon Pub!
The latest addition to the Seibertron.com toy photogalleries sees the recent Transformers Collectors' Club membership incentive for 2015 - the big bad who used to be good, Nova Prime! This is a retool and redeco of the Generations Deluxe Orion Pax figure, the figure sports white, black, gold and teal, an alberd, a gun, and will probably attempt to establish a Primacy or Dead Universe colony in your collection once displayed.
Check out the full gallery by clicking on any of the images below, which include comparisons with the rest of the Ark 1 crew from the IDWverse, and let us know what you think of this new version of the mold, before the arrival of the next one with Lio Convoy!
Very much like last year's fictional Tornado journal pages, the BotCon crew have created three new Facebook pages and profiles tying in to this year's theme and event in the new FunPub instalment. All working under the banner of the Axiom Nexus News channel, the three characters include investigative journalist Rook, reporter Andromeda and the unnamed News Editor. You can find out more and follow their doings by clicking on their profile images below!
