LeVar Burton sat down with the TCC to discuss his cartoon character and offer a behind the scenes look at Transformers: Rescue Bots. Jim Sorenson and Bill Forster bring us the first installment of the new Transformers: Animated Almanac Addendum TCC feature (with an awesome magazine cover to tie in to the new feature). MTMTE Profiles spotlighting the amazing art of Matthew Armstrong debut this issue as well. And if that wasn't enough, Flint Dille fleshes out a deleted scene from the original Transformers Animated movie, brought to life in the all-new Transformers story "A Flash Forward"! This is first time a deleted scene from the '86 movie has been illustrated in comic form and can be seen now, in Issue 43 of the Transformers Collectors' Club Magazine!

Quick update on the pre-order status of the 2012 TFCC exclusives Shattered Glass Drift and Runabout. The club has tweeted that we can expect the pre-orders to open in the last week of this month and both should be under $60.00.

Right now, the TENTATIVE date for Runabout and Drift pre-orders are last week of January. Maybe even the last day of January.


Both Drift and RunaBOUT should be under $60. That is the HIGH end, but for "budgeting", there you go...
