TFCC wrote:It's that time of year. Time for the Fall TCC membership drive! Get ready for some amazing reveals, great contests and club store sales as we get ready to head into 2013!

And speaking of next year, first up BotCon 2013. While we are locking down the details for next years convention, we are excited to reveal that for 2013, the BotCon set theme and story-line will be revealed in Issue 48 of the TCC Magazine! We are doing the reveal a new way this year, so if you are NOT a member yet be sure to JOIN TODAY so you get the next issue and get the scoop on the story and some of the characters for BotCon 2013. If you are already a member, sit back and get ready for the reveal!

Also, for those of you going to NYCC (or following from home), be sure to stop by and see Dan Khanna as he will have a reveal as it relates to the 2013 Transformers Figure Subscription Service. You won't want to miss what he has at his table! He will be set up at table O16. Be sure to mark that on your schedule!

So stay tuned... More news/contests to come later this week

As stoked as I am for Botcon news, I hope they're finished with the Shattered Glass stuff. I love the universe characters and figures, but honestly I'm hoping for something that feels more than a simple repaint.

I just got issue #47 in the mail a few days ago. WTF are they telling us about #48 when we wont see it for another 2 months ??? Im more interested in the location than the theme. They keep f**kin with peoples travel plans. Im trying to find out if Botcon is gonna be in a cool city to visit or if Im going to be buying on e-bay this year.

Yes, join today and get the "scoop".

Even though most of us won't receive it for weeks and it will be reported all over the net within a few days of it being mailed out.

I think they said a couple years ago that they'd be telling the story of the First Thirteen... #selfinducedspoiler

...until Hasbro confiscated that story from them to put into the Aligned continuity, which is why Nexus Prime quest for the Star Saber will likely go finished.

Though, we do at least know that the next story is set in the Wings Universe. ;)

Jhiaxus's body is his old Robots in Dsiguise toy.

And what existing toy mold is accurate enough to be simply redecoed (with a possible head remold) into an accurate G2 Jhiaxus?

Well, there's ROTF Mindwipe which I feel is the best choice. Also Universe Powerglide and Scourge,but Scourge is too small. And I hope it isn't, but Universe Silverbolt.

Well I know that. But I'm not that picky. As long as it undeniably looks like him, I don't care. I highly doubt we'll get him any other way.
