The Transformers Collector's Club has announced that issue 37 has begun shipping last week. The issue contains the new club storyline "Battlelines", continuing "The Coming Storm" story arc along with several other features. Finally, according to the magazine, we will be seeing a clear hint to the 2011 Theme:

Finally, Brian's Bytes and Bolts gives a pretty clear hint as to the theme for BotCon 2011's convention set. The first toy reveal will follow VERY soon as well!


This reveal is being teased at further by BotCon's Twitter feed:

BotCon wrote:BotCon 2011 convention set theme reveal is almost here. Big hint in issue 37 of the Transformers Collectors' Club Magazine.


BotCon wrote:Just realized SO many stories and/or TF continuities (as a whole) were told in installments/seasons of 3... Well, get ready for Season 3.5!


BotCon wrote:...Hint as to where the story will take place, but the theme within the story, the set make up, soon.


BotCon wrote:same old same old... Just throwin semi-vague hints out there. People seem to want Animated. Maybe we should do a toy or two.


BotCon wrote:Maybe... If we do one it needs to be Scrounge just to watch a certain fan site implode...


BotCon wrote:Shattered Glass anything would be cool...

//Yay! First post! :lol:

Is it me, or is the Windcharger on the cover RTS Windcharger? Or is it Alternators?

At the risk of a repeat of fan outrage over BotCon finishing off the Classics seekers, I really hope that Animated hint implies the set will include full-size Animated Thundercracker, Ramjet, and Slipstream. A true Wasp would be nice too. Aw hell, they could do a box set of all the human villians and I'd be ecstatic; I really hated seeing Animated go.

I just hope the last tweet doesn't imply they're opening the floodgates to Animated Shattered Glass, since there were too many toyless characters in the real Animated universe to tackle before they start makin' slag up.

And if they're serious about Scrounge...a yellow Legends Cosmos with his tailfin cut off, and a new head?

I may skip out if it's a set of Animated toys. I really love hanging out with everyone at the convention, but the trip out to Cali is expensive and eh...we'll see.

Holy Sh**. That would be a perfect Scrounge.

As for the Animated Toys, if they do a Slipstream I hope there's some real remolding on her, not just a Starscream with a different head. If they can't remold her then I think an Activator Starcsream mold would work better since it has those wider hips. Not to be sexist,but I like girls with some curves on them.

How about the set includes Hydrodive Bumblebee, jet-pack Optimus, and Blackout?

That would be very superfluous for me.

It would be like '07 all over again. Is it wrong that the thought makes me smile.

I think it'd be a waste of a good BotCon set (no offense to your idea). I want something distinctive from the box set (G2 Redux was perfect!) and three figures I already own, but this time two aren't shiny, wouldn't do it for me.

Shattered Glass... Animated!

Pleasenowthanks!




Bludgeon-inspired repaint of Samurai Prowl? SG-colours Rodimus Minor? Palette swaps for Arcee and Blackarachnia?

C'mon, you know it all makes sense!



On a side-note, my fiance is currently crying in the corner as she LOVES Animated, and she LOVES Disney Land!

I hate to say it but if the theme and box set are animated in style im gonna have to pass this year..I disliked the animated style alot and I don't think I could shell out $350 for a box set of figures I have no intrest in at all.. #-o

The latest tweet seems to direct the story back to the ooooooold 3-D comic series. A three-part story that appeared to take place in cartoon continuity, after Rebirth, was panning out to be a rather interesting tale... until it ended after the first issue. Could they be following up on the original G1 cartoon, treating the story from that magazine as a continuation of the fourth season (started by Rebirth)? Might we see Lord Imperious Delirious (love that name) and the Destructons?

I just had Angie Morris re-send issue #36 of my TFCC magazine a second time yesterday.

Apparently someone is stealing my mail. So I called my post office and they have a watch out for it... :-(

BotCon 2011 will feature Transformers Animated...


This was the most recent post from BotCon 2011's Twitter feed. No word yet if that means the set will feature Animated molds or Animated characters, but we'll keep you posted as more information develops.

I know I said I'd rather have toys of unproduced characters than forging a whole new Shattered-Glass Animated universe...but there is one pair of Animated 'Bots that are just begging for Decepticon repaints:

Jetfire and Jetstorm into Darkwing and Dreadwind.

They combine into a larger jet, the G1 idea of Dreadwing would finally have a gestalt robot mode, and they wouldn't even need new heads: Jetstorm looks like Animated Darkwing with his visor, and Jetfire's goggle thing corresponds roughly to Dreadwind's little maroon helmet.

And then we could mix and match with the originals to create Dreadfire and Darkstorm!
