Our local Transformers Collector's Club representative, TF_JW was nice enough to stop by the boards and let us know of the new story line accompanying the magazine in 2016.

TF_JW wrote:The TCC Magazine 2016 story line has been announced! "Transformers: Of Masters and Mayhem" takes place after the events of Another Light, as it follows the Classicsverse humans and Autobot Pretenders as they make the most of their new world.

The humans from the Classicverse have had their share of other worldly experiences since the Transformers first arrived in 1984. They have seen the war come and go, they have seen their planet taken from their home universe and transported to another, and then they even found themselves removed from the very planet they had always called home!
It has been five years since that day. The humans now have a new earth, a new home, one that is mostly at peace and one that is free of the Transformers! Or so they think... Next year, exclusively in the pages of the TCC Magazine, an exciting new 36 page story begins with Issue 67. Can the humans every truly be free of the war involving the Transformers, or will they always be at the mercy Of Masters and Mayhem!

They may be getting ready for the (Head) Titan masters figures, and doing their own exclusive versions of these.

Transformers definitely needs to focus more on the humans and their plight amid the alien robot war.

Ya'll sneer about humans, yet the popular comic right now is the one with more holomatter avatars than a DeviantArt page. :D

Uh, guys? That's Crossblades, Vroom, and Metalhawk, the Autobot Mega Pretenders, in the upper-left corner, and down at the bottom-left is Spike Witwicky, Headmaster of Fortress Maximus.

The woman at the bottom is Lisa, who was an ally of Spike in Galvatron II's dark alternate future of Marvel G1 issue #67 "Rhythms of Darkness!", so she's the only one in that pic who we know for sure to be a purely human character.

The older guy in the center seems to be someone new, but some think he might be a Decepticon Pretender, like Thunderwing in a new shell or something.

Get a grip, people. >:oP

I love how in the comic Bludgeon's swords are some kind of short sword and yet the toy swords look like something Fort Max would use to attck Trypticon with... from the next county...

Query: In this iteration then, does this mean the Targetmaster figs are gonna be humans instead of Nebulans?

Hey, if they can show me a non-wheelchair-bound post-Marvel G.B. Blackrock who actually does something of interest, I'll be happy.

Once again, Sabrblade hits them on the mark.

Nice to see that the FSS 4.0 figures are going to get a storyline, though I'm not sure if having the focus on humans was the best choice, mostly in terms of fan reception.

Hey, some human characters have actually been good additions to the show/comic they were in. Particularly in Prime: Agent Fowler in particular was awesome, and MECH were surprisingly menacing for human villains (though I'll admit the last two MECH episodes feel like they were originally intended to be parts of a longer arc that got shortened).

I'll just highlight your own word and leave it at that.

You may have missed the text portion.

The humans from the Classicverse have had their share of other worldly experiences since the Transformers first arrived in 1984. They have seen the war come and go, they have seen their planet taken from their home universe and transported to another, and then they even found themselves removed from the very planet they had always called home!

References to the humans highlighted in comparison to references to the Transformers.

And they were just that - additions. The text portion heavily implies an extensively human-centric arc. If so, this would, like the Movieverse, make the Transformers the "additions".

Do you honestly think that the story is actually going to focus on Average Joe nobodies and not the Autobot Humans we see in the poster itself? The poster's even designed as an obvious homage to Masterforce's poster and that was both a human-centric series and one of the movie beloved (by virtually everyone who watched it) TF cartoons of all time.

Image

All the Autobots (and five of the Decepticons) in that poster are humans in some form or another, just like the Autobot Humans in the "Of Masters and Mayhem" poster.

It's even a given in the title "Of Masters and Mayhem". "Masters" as in "Headmasters", "Targetmasters", "Powermasters" etc. And we see three Mega Pretenders there as well.

This story is picking up from the end of "Another Light", so we're going to see what became of the Pretenders, Headmaster Spike, etc., not some random civilians of no importance.

This looks interesting, though what happened to the other autobot pretenders? Also no Overlord?

That man in the middle does have a thunderwingish look to him...

Okay...but that still isn't thematically different from Pretenders.

I'm thinking Starscream (minus spiky armor).

Overlord presumably was left behind on the old Earth.

Sarcasm much.


But I do agree with the anti-human sentiment. We come to see the Transformers, not the humans' reaction to the Transformers.

That the movieverse humans have gotten as much screen time as they have seems like a secondary problem, with the main problem being that even five minutes is more screen time than it takes for any of the movieverse humans to wear out their welcome.

Why are people reacting so much? It's focusing on humans as a way of letting us see what it's like for the autobots currently disguised as humans (you know, robots in disguise that old moniker). Sarblade goes our of his way to explain things and people still react like there's going to be no transformers in it.

As for comparisons to the movieverse, come on guys it's almost been ten years since the first one, long enough for everyone to know why it was done the way it was. That and this isn't really the place for that :P
