The latest newsletter from the Transformers Collectors Club is now shipping. Some people have already received their copy. Beastbot X of TFW2005 has already received a copy and has posted some of the news in the letter. Here is what Beastbot X posted:

"In the newest issue of Master Collector, there's a short article on Astrotrain, as well as a drawing of Astrotrain and his partially-shadowed Minicons.

First-- the Minicon repaints that will be coming with Astrotrain are the GIANT PLANET TEAM. From the drawing, Longarm has been repainted orange and blue (or purple, it's hard to tell), Overcast has been repainted blue (or purple) and gold, and.. I can't really see much of Deepdive's coloration from the picture, other than some gray on his shoulders. It's not mentioned which Minicon is named which, except that the Comettor repaint in gray and blue/purple is named STARCATCHER. (A nice compromise between the suggested joke name "Cowcatcher" on the Club forums!) Also, it looks like Astrotrain is part of Cannonball's crew-- another suggestion from the Club forums made reality!

There will also be an as-yet-unannounced second club exclusive figure to be released at about the same time as Astrotrain this fall. China has been very slow getting back to MC about the pricing info and such, and they are sorry for the delay.

Also, when the Astrotrain figure is released this fall, an illustrated text story will accompany it.

(Also, in case you're wondering what else is in the MC newsletter, there's the usual IDW comic, IDW solications, and fanart page, as well as an article describing the Hasbro team's trip to the movie set, Part 4 of the "Roadmap to the TF Multiverse" series featuring Japanese comics, 2 Lil' Formers strips, a Mini Mayhem! strip,a Landquake bio, a bio for Anti-Blaze, Scythe, and Checkpoint, and a review on some past Japanese TF video games."
