Howdy folks! Just read through the Botcon comic, which continues the timelines saga that is being presented in the club magazine bi-monthly.

It reads a little out of place. Last club mag, we had the Autobots getting ready to go toe to toe with Devastator. For those that read the five page preview, you know that they have returned from it, and Rodimus (Hot Rod) is gravely injured.
After a Devastator induced devastation of the Earth bound bots, Prime needs more help and Magnus, Springer, Elita One, Huffer, Swoop, Snarl and Strongarm show up to give it to him.
Meanwhile, Bugbite plots revenge against all Transformers, as he implants 'cerebro shell' based control devices in the seekers, and Starscream, and attempts a coup of Megatron, and all the Cons. His goal is the destruction of all Transformers, because he is from another time and place, where he is now the lone survivor.
Not for long though, as Megatron pounds him. The Autobots rescue Mirage (who used his invisibility to spy on the Cons, but then is captured and brought to Megatron by Bugbite and his forces).
The Autobots get out intact and wholly unharmed (except Mirage and Rodimus), but Decepticon casualties are really high, and the Autobots did nothing to them really, but free Mirage and jam and destroy the cerebro technology.
It's a good read, and uses some characters that have been gone for too long. Things like 'master partners are brought up as very appropriate plot points, and why there is no longer binary bonded partners to Weirdwolf, and Dreadwind.
Elita One is portrayed as a very capable warrior and spy, and there is nary an interaction between her and Optimus, for good or ill...
Rumored other set for tommorow is Alpha Trion (Vector Prime Repaint) and WeirdWolf (Cybertron Snarl Repaint) as well as Huffer (Cybertron Armorhide repaint) and Springer (Cybertron Defense Hot Shot Repaint)!
The BotCon 2007 Customizing class figure of Grimlock is to be repainted as a Transformer named Overkill, based off the original Decepticon cassette from 1987. GetterDragun notified Seibertron earlier this morning about this. GetterDragun attended the class earlier today. Hopefully we'll have pics soon.
To help promote their "Transform Your Ride" sale, GM has released new commercials to promote their vehicles as well as the Transformers Movie.
The new advertisements feature different Transformers giving pedestrians new reasons to buy a car. Check out the adverts featuring Blackout, Optimus Prime and Megatron. More of these may be out, so keep your eyes peeled.
These commercials keep up with the slightly comedic advertisements we've seen produced for Burger King and Mountain Dew.
The Transformers Movie producers have been very busy as of late doing interviews. There is a new interview with Lorenzo di Bonaventura. SuperHero Hype was able to catch up with the producer. Read the interview here.
There is yet another new article about the Transformers Movie. The latest article has been posted at The Hollywood Reporter. The article talks about how the movie is tied to product placements. Read it for yourself by clicking here.
We have know for some time now that there would be a Burger King commercial that would help promote the Transformers Movie. Well, now the commercial is airing of T.V. and has made its way to the net. Here it is:
