Transformers Club Magazine Comic to Enter Transtech Universe
The Official Transformers Collector’s Club posted some information on the Member’s Only boards about the future of the club comic storyline (featuring the Club exclusive combiners). The club will be working with Ken Lashley. Lashley’s website is Draxhall.com. Draxhall Jump is the source of concept designs for the ill-fated Transtech line. It looks like we’ll finally get a look into what might’ve been in the Transtech universe!
Also, the next Club exclusive toy (ala Airazor and Astrotrain) is not Elita-1 from the Botcon comic. The toy also has a new head sculpt.
Masterpiece 07 and Mp-08 Optimus Prime vs Megatron Rumors
ACToys.net had some very interesting rumors going around on what to expect for the next TWO Masterpiece releases. The problem is that the rumors needed to be translated into English.
2005 Member Dark Rage used Google translation and recieved:According to reliable sources, MP07 is the original color matching red spider,
MP08 is full version of VS OP full version of Megatron gift boxes suit
2005 Member Matrix Soul then let us in that Red Spider is the Chinese Translation for Starscream. Thus we could be looking at MP07 being an Anime-Accurate Starscream.
MP08 sounds like a Prime vs. Megatron two-pack (with all the extras? Including the trailer? We’ll have to wait and see.)
Nonetheless, it’s an exciting time for Masterpiece enthusiasts with the release of US Masterpiece Starscream and now news of a Prime vs. Megatron Two-Pack.
