Seibertron's own waaaaghlord reports the following:
Pete from the TCC has announced on the club boards which direction the club comic is going to take following the current (post Marvel) Classics arc. While I can't quote directly from the club boards Pete has been kind enough to let members report in broad terms what's coming up to the wider community. And Transtech is it.
This will apparently be a different take to the original post Beast Machines concept, since the Universe comics have already covered the post BM era. Since the club comics have been focusing on the club combiner figures and hopping between realities it's fair to assume that this will in fact be a totally new TF continuity within the broader scope of Timelines. The Transtech name is apparently not being used for the project, what name they are going with is not known as yet.
It's been seven years coming but it looks like the TT designs are finally going to get their day in the sun.
Looks like interesting times ahead for Transformers fans, with Botcon adding a twist to next years toys, and now the TCC reviving Transtech in Comic form.

It'll be interesting to see what the TCC do with the line.

first BotCon, then HTCC. boo Hasblo, way to go. (yeah, let the BotConners and TCC members start the fire, apparently we deserve it for being born into the 3rd world instead of America.)

How is it that one set of character designs gathers mostly negative forum press, while another is hailed as some kind of long-lost holy grail?

The club have stated before that they won't be able to use moulds that havn't already seen a retail release (with the exception of remoulds to existing toys) so the only TT themed toys that may appear somewhere down the line would be existing toys done as TT characters. Given the unique look of the TT designs I can't see anything that would translate well in the way of existing toys in that context.
The movies complexity and the animated poseability and amazing prowl transformation technology.

Overall this is another reason not to sign up for but wait for the TPB. I'll sign up when it costs a reasonable price for international members.

At least in part because they've already tied Timelines into Universe with the inclusion of Nemesis Prime, Ramjet, Sentinel Maximus and Omega Prime in Balancing Act in their post Universe incarnations. Since they're reality swapping with these stories there would be nothing to stop them having a couple of alternative post BM continuities going on, but it is cleaner to keep things somewhat seperate.

I'll save my judgement for when we see all this new stuff at Botcon.

Why should they do things like give some people what everybody wants, when they could do the right thing and give NOBODY anything they want.
People have wanted to see the transtech designs come to life for years now. Hasbro and the Club are giving you what you guys want. Again. Now shut up.

I'm looking forward to seeing this. Some of the comic concepts done by Draxhall Jump for Transtech look pretty cool.
