TFCC have revealed the cover to issue #48 of their Club Magazine featuring Circuit from their subscription service as drawn by artist Robby Musso. This issue, which has already started to mail out, will reveal the theme for BotCon 2013. Click here to visit the TFCC homepage. We've also mirrored the clean version of the cover below from FunPub deviantART account.

It's finally here! Issue 48 of the TCC Magazine is in the mail and with it, the announcement of the BotCon 2013 convention set theme. Though the BotCon theme is just the icing on the Issue 48 cake! Also in this issue we have a great sit down with Clint Chapman from the Transformers brand team where we talk about Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters, two all-new MTMTE profiles, an all-new Recordicons and the final installment to this year Club story "A Flash Forward". All this and more in Issue 48 of the TCC Magazine!

I think the theme will be a G2 redux of the movie franchise,

...except that's G1 Circuit, part of the Subscription Service. Non-licensed movie molds (mostly of off-screen characters, basically) are fair game. Look at BotCon Gigatron (Voyager Bludgeon) or BotCon Spinister (Tomahawk).

As promised the TFCC Club magazine has revealed the theme for BotCon 2013, Machine Wars! An Allspark user has received their copy of the magazine and reported the theme, which is set in the "Wings of Honor" universe.

Machine Wars? Surprising. Thing is, we only have two characters unique to that line: Hubcap the tow truck and Megaplex the Megatron clone. What are you playing, FunPub?

I wonder if Movie Longarm is a licensed mold...

Well, every cloud has a silver lining...

Looks like I'll be saving some money next year as an international collector;

For now, unless something really interesting comes down from on high, I'm out >:oP

Machine Wars? Strange, never thought that would be considered as a theme...

Unless we see some downright amazingness, I think I could skip a year of wishing for BotCon exclusives.

Well, I'm kind of excited to see what we get for the figures this year. Machine Wars had some interesting stuff. Kinda curious if we'll finally get Hooligan from the Energon Starscream mold to finish those guys out. I wouldn't mind Cyberjet redecos either as new characters.

Interesting.............I'll leave it at that.


Actually I won't - I have to say, let's give Soundwave a little break for now. We have an MP, FOC on the way, TFCC has done SG Soundwave..um...twice..

Let's leave him out of this set please.

All I can think of is how they did Skyquake and Thunderclash in a previous Wings set, and their original toys were repainted into Machine wars Op and Starscream, but repaints of those guys from Botcon would seem to imply Wings or Honor Shattered Glass, so...

...well, FunPub will have a nearly blank canvas for whatever the hell they feel like doing, so hopefully that means creative lightning struck someone and we'll be getting our most original Botcon fiction ever!

Hmmm, anyone else thinking the most logical way to expand this would be to do a memorial to K.B. Toys? You know, a bunch of homages to their other TF exclusives? If they used the Bayniverse Bludgeon mold again plus a random Optimus mold we'd have the Destructicons, and surely there's 2 molds that'd work for early Energon Cyclonus and Demolishor. "Revenge of the Fallen Mall-Toystore" has a nice ring to it, yes?

Potential line from comic: "Our ranged weapons have somehow been neutralized! I suddenly feel very unsafe!"

I like the KB Toys homage. That would be a great idea!

Something machine wars themed that would fit in with my classics would be lovely! :-?

Well, we know that TFCC can use the Movie Terradive mold, they have it for depth charge. So there's a third of the Cyberjets right there. (be the Seeker boxsrt fiasco all over agian...) i wonder if they have acess to the Cybertron molds still? CYB Defence Red Alert as Stalker/soundwave? Classics Silverbolt as King Atlas?
