Also, this reveals that someone named Dave Williams will be the co-author of the next book in the "Exodus Trilogy".

Um, yes? Considering how awful the ending to Exiles was by leaving it on an open cliffhanger with things left unanswered and unexplored. There's still thousands of years left for the books to cover, even before the TFs finally reach Earth.

Not to mention that David J. Williams is not Alex Irvine.

He does have an interesting resumé, yes. But Irvine also teaches Creative Writing at university, and has had some good criticism of his non-TF work. Didn't stop him from being awful in those two books.

I still claim that comics would work better. The War for Cybertron mini-comic was so much better than the chapters it was taken from.

Man...BotCon is in my old home town, and I'm functionally broke out here in rural Colorado. Life sucks sometimes.

Well, I didn't know for sure if I was going to be able to go this year, but my wife and I will indeed be heading to San Diego. I know some of the regulars won't make it this year, but I will be happy to see a lot of my friends.

I'll be appearing at Botcon 2013 in San Diego this weekend.

I won't be at Artist Alley but I'll be one of the guests at IDW Publishing's VIP Tour, I'll be on their comics panel, and I'll be making some appearances at their booth throughout the weekend.

Hope to see you there!

The official Transformers Facebook page has uploaded the original lithograph for this year's BotCon event, which features all the characters revealed so far from the Machine Wars: Termination event. The litho will be available all weekend from the Transformers Collectors' Club, and is mirrored below for your convenience.

Clever, making the jets look like the original MW toys. Especially the larger Starscream one look menacing.

That's a very cool spread. Wish the comic had used this art style.

If I saw an air show like that I'd be like *CENSORED*, as they're the Clones.

Well, that's definitely Hubcap and Mirage on the Left of Hoist and Thundercracker on the right of Skywarp.

I love how the disjointed-ness of the molds of this Botcon are what binds them together.

Classics for Mirage, and the Rainmakers
Generations for Hoist (and Electro), and Strika (and Blastcharge)
Revenge of the Fallen for Skywarp (and Thundercracker)
Autobot Alliance (Transformers 2010 toyline) for Obsidian, and Starscream
Dark of the Moon for Sandstorm
Prime: Robots in Disguise for Megaplex

The question is, with all these molds and figures...

What happened to Optimus, Megatron, Prowl, Hubcap and Soundwave? I haven't seen them confirmed at all. They're the only figures missing from the entire Machine Wars line.

I guess maybe Hubcap got his name changed to Electro though? Considering what Electro looks like?

They most likely aren't receiving their own exclusives. But, despite the general dislike for such a move, I wouldn't mind seeing Soundwave from Reveal the Shield Perceptor.

I would dig it. Would keep things in a nice scale, versus the behemoth that is Cybertron Red Alert.
