The latest Transformers Collectors Club magazine has started to hit mailboxes, and as previously reported, the issue shows off the Transformers Generations 2014 Deluxe Wave 3. On show are Rattrap (pictured from the front cover image), Tankor and Crosscut.
Rattrap is as you can see in the image based on his season 1 beast mode. The image in the magazine shows Rattrap comes with two guns, most likely they combine to make the larger gun shown on the cover. His beast mode is an organic rat, nicely detailed but it seems to lack some poseability.
Tankor is likely to be the star of this assortment, for those wanting show-accurate Beast Machines toys. His robot form is nearly spot-on to how the character looked in the Beast Machines series, with the tank mode sporting the semi-exposed head which was something of a trademark for Tankor. Plus he sports a Vehicon faction symbol – making the Vehicons the sixth faction represented in the current Transformers Generations series.
Crosscut is as some anticipated a silver redeco of Skids, with a new head. The new head seems to be based on the original alternate head design of Diaclone Skids, later used on the exclusive E-Hobby Crosscut and Generations book Screech figures.
The collector’s club magazine also gives some news on Botcon 2014. The anniversary blow-out show’s location and dates are now set, and an announcement is coming soon, pending a rewrite of the registration software to make sure the registration process is as smooth as possible for everyone. Here’s hoping that Fun Publications don’t keep us hanging on that one too long!
