Unlike our earlier news story which linked through to an April Fools version of the Botcon 08 comic, this one is the real deal.

The Official Botcon website has updated with a 3 page preview of their "Timelines" comic that will be available at this years convention.

This years comic focuses on the "Shattered Glass" set of figurines, and ties into previous years Botcon Comics.

If you want to have a peek at the preview pages, check out page 1, page 2, and page 3.

Front Paged and Credited.

As nice as the art is, and as funny as Hotrod looks, I still prefer the April Fools Version... :-(

The aged Not-Rod.

This Continuity looks more and more interesting. Perhaps I'll order the comic afterwards on the site.

Haha! Brilliant! I loved the April Fool's version, but the fact that they really did go with the "evil mustache" look for at least Hot Rod makes me think this won't be that too far off from it.
Ooh, Classics Cliffjumper too...good thing he has a rubsign.

I did like the April Fool's version better, but it was nice to have confirmation of Hot Rod... 8)

Nice, I can't wait for this, I just hope there's a way for non-attendee's like me to find/read this short of spending a ton of $$$.I wonder if Rodimus will be part of the figure set, although I'm not to fond of the facial hair. Is that CJ or not, because Rodimus calls him Jumper.

Im sure everyones still upset that the April Fools version is not the real one after seeing this.


Nope, I'm not. I prefer my Tf more like this, I haven't gotten into the toys, but this story looks awesome.

Cliffjumper

Kinda reminds me of that Superman:TAS episode "Brave New Metropolis".

wish i could buy something with my newly aquiered credits ;)

i like how this ties into timelines part 2. cliffjumper gets lost in a cave at the beginning and bug bite is from an alternate universe (not shattered glass by the way)

Sweet! Ruckus! Now there's a bot that needs the Alter-Tech treatment.

You know, I really enjoyed the April Fool. It was a really fun throwback that had some excellent nods to the past. Have to say that this is almost just as good. But that's largely owed to Ruckus' presence.

This fails compared to that G2-esque comic. The G2 feel really added to the strangeness of the nature of the repaints and characters. And that 'Til All Are Gone' text REALLY feels like it came off a G2 figure!

Something tells me that's not Rodimus.

I liked the look and story of the April Fools comic too. But this is good too. I love that Rodimus! We NEED to have a figure of him! He must be one of the add-ons. Let's see, so the line up so far is:

Autobots:
1 Optimus Prime[CONFIRMED]
2 Grimlock[CONFIRMED]
3 Jazz[CONFIRMED]
4 Ricochet[CONFIRMED]
5 Goldbug[CONFIRMED]
6 Rodimus[NOT OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED]
7 Blurr[NOT OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED]

Decepticons:
1 Megatron[RUMOR]
2 Starscream[CONFIRMED]
3 Razorclaw[NOT OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED]
4 Rampage[NOT OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED]
5 Divebomb[NOT OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED]
6 Armada Wheeljack Repaint[RUMOR]
7 Minicon Windsheer Repaint[RUMOR]

BotCon cannot come soon enough.

Haha, evil stache! It kinda does make him look distinguished, though for some reason I still think of Wreck-Gar.

I was wondering if they were going to have a type of story where one bot falls through a wormhole type off thing or if they were just going to start a story set in the alternate universe and have no cross over. Either way, I'm intrigued.

You still might. They released the last two Botcon exclusive comics in retail.
