MW_logo

After a long wait, a copy of the Transformers Collector’s Club Magazine has reached the hands of the fandom. Thanks to a thread over on The Allspark, it has been revealed that the theme of the BotCon 2013 set is

Machine Wars!

As announced at BotCon 2012, this year’s story takes place in the TFCC’s Wings of Honor universe after the events of their Generation 2 stories. What toys could possibly be included in this set? For that matter where and when will BotCon 2013 be? Swing on by the ongoing thread and speculate away by clicking the discuss link below.

UPDATE: According to The Allspark user, Walky, the comic inside the magazine itself also gives a bit of a teaser on just who may be in the set.

Spoiler:
Silhouettes of MW Soundwave, Megatron, and Starscream standing over a wrecked RTS Laser Prime and e-Hobby Galvatron II. These “Machine Wars” are a premonition of the future as seen by Sizzle.

    Didn't see a thread for this yet, it's mostly just an announcement of a coming announcement, but maybe a small hint of a toy or two will happen.

    Hopefully we'll know a location soon as well.

    I hope it's a decent theme for BotCon this year that a lot of people will like. Maybe using the original Beast Wars beast forms for the main cast but making them more accurate in paint and head?

    I really wish they'd just announce it a little earlier than December ...

    Somebody is hotlinking an image. From what I've heard, Allspark doesn't like that.

    I hope we get some bw neo repaints along with some more obscure g1 goodness!
    Those combined would make an awesome boxed set and exclusives.
