The writers for the TCC Magazine 2014 Club Comic are @MSipher and @TrentTroop


The story will focus on Protoform X and Transmutate.
Hmmm... that's interesting. The setting of last year's was SG Prehistoric Earth, yet these two might be from Depth Charge's universe. :-?

Prologue will feature the very first fictional appearance of some Neo-Classic characters i.e. Beast Era as well as some OLD favorites.
I wonder if this is or isn't pertaining to the SG Maximals and SG Predacons we saw at the last issue, which featured:
SG BW Megatron - Beast Wars 10th Anniversary/Cybertron Jungle Planet T-Rex Megatron in 1996 Optimus Primal colors
SG Terrorsaur - Beast Wars Lazorbeak colors
SG Tarantulas - Beast Wars Fox Kids Transmetal Taratulas body and colors
SG Scorponok - BotCon 1999 Beast Wars Sandstorm colors
SG Dinobot - Hasbro Universe 2008 Dinobot colors
SG Waspinator - Generations Thrilling 30 Waspinator in Beast Wars Fox Kids Transmetal Waspinator colors (NOT Buzz Saw colors, despite popular belief)


The timeline the story takes place in is one that has been teased thru other stories, but has never gotten a real good look at, until now.
OHH! Primax 209.0 Gamma!!! :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:

More news from the TCC Twitter - https://twitter.com/The_TF_Club

Well, we tweeted TCC news from @BotCon
But now you all know. And knowing IS half the battle!

In response to a question about where one will be able to read the old prose stories when they get put back up:
All will be going up on the new forums (WHEN we get them up).

Which spurred them to say this:
FYI… We WILL resolve the Shattered Glass Prose stories. We have one last one to tell.
When we post it we will post all the previous Prose fiction as well.

They also confirm what the previously teased timeline is:
Primax 209.0 Gamma

I can't wait for the combination of rage and excitement if these "Knights" are the Knights of Cybertron led by a MTMTE-inspired Dai Atlas.

Knights are NOT the natural enemy of the pirate, ninja are. :-B

Bumblebee was "knighted" in Predacons Rising. There's still hope for BH decoes, right?

Right?

Sounds pretty stupid to me. Almost as stupid as Shattered Glass. Maybe if the characters are G1 inspired I might buy the set. But alot of money has been saved by not going to Botcon.

I remember those Fisher Price sets! I didn't have them but it did get me thinking about Pirate vs. Knight battles.

I think they also made some Cowboy figures too. I would think the Cowboy is the natural enemy of the Ninja.

So these are Wings Universe Star Seekers. Wasn't expecting that.

Was actually expecting the Maraudicons instead.

Though, it should be pointed out that these are DIFFERENT Star Seekers from those led by Thundertron.

"Great Adventures"! That was the Fisher Price toyline ya'll are speaking of, and it was awesome.

But then it evolved into/got replaced by Imaginext.

Which could create the same themed battles, though they're not producing much pirate stuff right now, what with all the licenses they've acquired. Even their Dino-Riders are getting scaled back.

You could also do that with what Playmobil's selling, though their pirates were all ghosts or zombies for a while. And Lego had both, starting in the mid-'90s; only that line has also produced an abundance of blocky ninjas, though Imaginext might be starting to catch up.

Say, am I the only one here who contemplates the TF Kreo displays, but always buys Cityville instead? Lego townsfolk vs. zombies could've compelled me to collect whole cities back when I was 8.

But back on topic, given how easily TFs can resemble armored humans, "Knights" seems so open-ended that I can't narrow down in my head what molds are most likely. Melee weapons mandatory? Maybe it's just that I watched the Blind Dead Quadrilogy, but I can't get the image of Blackbeard's crew fighting revenant Templars out of my head.

Or, if FunPub's habit of dusting off JBW molds spills over into Botcon, maybe the knights ride around on the Thoroughbred Corps? I mean, this could be way to honor the Year of the Horse outside of Platinum editions, and they'd make as much sense any other troop-builder.
