The new issue of the official Transformers Collector's Club Magazine is arriving in mailboxes everywhere, and unfortunately it contains some news that some may consider unsavory...

According to sources who have received the magazine, the much anticipated Seacons set will not be available in April as was first suggested, but looks to be delayed until a June or july time frame.

A very reliable source, Brian Savage, says that this is due to packaging issues, and not problems with the actual toys' production.

On a positive note, the magazine does include some information about characters in the Wave 2 and Wave 3 lineups of Animated, and of course the assortment of other goodies, including the continuation of the Transtech comic.

Animated Wave 2: Adds Ratchet and Blackarachnia
Animated Wave 3: Adds Jazz, Oil Slick, Snarl, and Soundwave


You can view the original author's thread here.

If you are a member of the Collector's Club, the mail should hold your magazine soon.

You had to see that one coming. Hell, the Seacons have been delayed for like 6 years already. Too bad, I was getting my pre-order finger all warmed up too.

We don't have any confirmation on price of any sort yet...must mean they will be free to club members. :grin:

Clearly. That's one of the perks we get as members. Why all the complaining about $40 a year for free pictures of upcoming Universe figures? I get free Seacons. :D

And, I must say I'm surprised by Skowls' non-chalant response. I'd of thought we'd see him on the news with a rifle in the clock tower at this information.... :D

No repaints in the first three waves? =( I won't give up hope.

Great. Now I need to find my TF fix from some closeby street corner.

This statement in no way condones the use of drugs. DON'T USE DRUGS! :grin:

It's easy to be non-chalant when you're a starving student with no money. If they would have come out now and sold out before I got a job aand some money, that's when I would have 'gone postal', so to speak...

I've waited 4 years (that's right, since 2004 - check the news archives) for my favourite TFs to be repainted and re-released, I can wait another few months, no problem.

I understand. I was just speaking to the effect that you specifically get thwarted each and every time the Seacons are even mentioned. You are a better man than I; I would have grown so bitter that I would have moved to a cabin in the woods and made Seacons out of sticks and rocks by now.
Really though, everyone can handle a delayed release, and in your case it clearly will work out for the best.

Haha! Seacons out of sticks and stones, eh? I think it's been done before...

Oh yeah, Beast Machines Hammerstrike :SICK:

Oh my god, that's awful. Was that from Beast Machines, or was it at the bottom of your cereal box Skowl? (I know where it's from, ok?) :D

I still wont have a job (not old enough), but I should be able to save up for it and get them by the time they’re out.

Yay for us poor people! :D

Nice, I figured Ratchet would be wave 2 if not 1 and it's good we got confirmation on which wave Jazz and Soundwave will be out, even if it will be awhile.

This doesn't surprise me at all, in fact, I think the club did it on purpose. A good chunk of everyone's TF budget is already promised to the following currently:

Encore Skylynx
Encore Omega Supreme
Animated Prototypes
Premium Movie Figures
Botcon Box Sets
Club Registration
Botcon Souvenir Sets
Botcon dealer room purchases.

So I'm sure to encourage sales of Nightbeat and the Seacons, they delayed them. I mean, it wouldn't make sense to ship something over now when all its going to do is take up room in their warehouse until people get past Botcon.
