SNAP, another one?!!! :shock:

That's the fastest they've ever posted more than one at a time in a LONG time!

Don't get me wrong, this is GREAT news, as they're finally producing fiction with more meat to it again since their comic issues have always been so restrained.

I renewed mine yesterday. I have to laugh reading the benefits though since they still list a forum as one of them even though it shut down years ago despite the Joe club still having theirs. When was the last time they held a contest, I can't even remember them ever having one?

So, I was a member of of the TCC for the first 5 years (So, I have the whole set of transparent plastic Super Link combiner repaints/tools) and I enjoyed it, most of the time, but it also seemed -- particularly at that time -- to be too expensive as a Canadian to stay a member and so after I completed the combiner (lol Nexus Maximus) I didn't renew. I have noticed that several cool things have come since then, including the subscription service, but I still wonder if it is worth the cost... Since I would have to make a rather hasty decision to get the free figure this year, I was hoping that I could get some feedback?

I'm waaaaay behind on Club fiction, but glad to see that Buzzclaw is apparently relevant again; is he a faction symbol in this continuity? I always considered him a personal favorite, because while some Fuzors seemed unnecessarily ugly (though NOT Injector, because how much prettier could a Lionfish/Hornet honestly look?), the lil' Mantecko just seemed so adorable, with his applauding/jaws-of-life action feature.

Or is it someone else?

I don't understand the question. :oops:

EDIT: Hadn't looked at the story yet, but now I saw the first page and see what you mean. I think it's just supposed to be a neat design of the main character, though I still haven't read the story yet (need to find an opportunity to sit down and read it this week).

The first word on the first page of the story is "Buzzclaw". ;)

I own three Buzzclaw figures so I'm definitely going to give this a read. Shame his look in this story isn't based on any existing figure. Just skimming through it's a pretty interesting mix of characters.

Just got done reading this "Head Games" story for the first time.

That was heavy. I mean, I know Jim's good, really good, but that was... That had some serious weight to it.

You know that feeling you get after watching a film in the theater for the first time and, just as it ends, everyone in the theater let's out an exhale of awe all at the same time? Yeah, that good.

The Official BotCon twitter account has posted a very quick preview panel from the BotCon 2015 comic featuring the meeting of Megatron and Packrat. The 2015 Botcon "Cybertron's Most Wanted" comic features art by Matt Frank. For a look at how this meeting went check out the comic panel mirrored below. To see these guys in figure form, check out our exclusive gallery for "The Thief" Packrat and stay tuned for the upcoming gallery featuring "The Boss" Megatron

Couple of quick questions from someone who has never been to a BotCon:

- Are the BotCon comics all in the same continuity, or is each year standalone?
- Is it the same continuity as the 3H BotCon comics
- Have the BotCon comics ever been collected in a trade format either in print or digitally?

EDIT** Nevermind---I actually see that most of my questions were answered in this thread! Thanks!

For the first two questions, I have written a list of nearly every piece of BotCon and TCC fiction in the first post of this thread, which color codes them by continuity.

In short, not all of the BotCon comics are part of the same continuity. Some are, and some aren't. See the list in the first post to see which ones belong to which continuity.

For the third question, the BotCon comics themselves have not been collected in trade format, but several of the TCC magazine comics have. As far as digital releases go, none of the BotCon comics have been released digitally, but nearly all of the TCC text stories and a few non-BotCon comics have.

Updated the list again, and overhauled it to not only break down the giant Fun Pub section by year, but to also specify the kind of medium each piece of fiction is.

EDIT: Added links to where those that can be viewed online legally for free... can be viewed online legally for free.

Very much like last year's fictional Tornado journal pages, the BotCon crew have created three new Facebook pages and profiles tying in to this year's theme and event in the new FunPub instalment. All working under the banner of the Axiom Nexus News channel, the three characters include investigative journalist Rook, reporter Andromeda and the unnamed News Editor. You can find out more and follow their doings by clicking on their profile images below!

Makes sense to up the back cover stuff to three since David Willis is apparently no longer doing Recordicons.

He did Recordicons last issue, #62.

Was there some announcement that Recordicons would be ending soon?

Also, this isn't back cover stuff. This is like the Tornado Facebook from last year that contained text stories leading up to that year's BotCon comic. These three will likely do the same for this year's comic.

So how much of this is actually going to matter? Like is this ever going to be picked up again, or is this going to supplement this years story, rather than complement it; like tornadoes blog, where it gave character information that should've been in the comic rather than a peripheral supplement.

Can't answer either way since I haven't yet had time to sit down and read any of it (had a busy work schedule all weekend). :oops:
