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!

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...
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BotCon 2012 Primus and Iacon Registration is live!
Fort Worth, TX – January 18, 2012 – Fun Publications, Inc., licensee for Hasbro’s official Transformers Collectors’ Convention, BotCon, announced today that fans can now register for both the attending “Primus” package and the non-attending “Iacon” package, featuring the amazing 6-figure box set Transformers: Invasion. This year’s award-winning convention will take place at the Hyatt Regency Dallas from April 26th to April 29th. Fans and collectors who register for BotCon as a Primus package holder will receive (in addition to the 6-figure convention box set): admission to the Friday private sales room experience, all panels and seminars throughout the weekend and the Hall of Fame Celebration party held Saturday night. Finally, Primus package attendees will also receive a special bonus Transformers Deluxe figure to go along with their convention box set. General Admission for non-registered guests will be available on Saturday and Sunday only.
Each year, BotCon strives to provide fans that attend the show a first class event while also giving those who can’t attend an opportunity to bring home part of the action. The BotCon box set has become the exclusive “standard” within the Transformers collecting community and the 2012 box set once again takes it to a whole new level, featuring the first updates of characters such as “The Overlord” Gigatron and the Pretender Metalhawk.
BotCon is in its 18th year and will once again feature a large dealer room with thousands of Transformers collectibles as well as other toys such as Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Marvel figures and many other great collectibles from the 80’s, 90’s and modern day!
