Hot off the press, the Transformers Collector Comic has begun shipping.  The issue includes an interview with Beast Wars and TF:Animated Voice Director and voice of Arcee, Susan Blu as well as a sneak peak of Classics/Universe 2.0  wave 2 deluxe (Beast Wars) Dinobot and Hotshot (new molds) legends Warpath, Cosmos and Wheelie.  The issue also includes a continuation of the Transtech storyline.

So if you're a member, look toward your mailbox.  If you're not a member, what're you waiting for?!

I keep hearing about these Hot Shot and Dinobot figures, and yet no one posts the pictures to prove it.

We learned about Hot Shot the same time we learned of Cheetor, Hound & Ravage, Acid Storm, and Galvatron, and they've all got images. So why are there none for Hot Shot and Dinobot?

We should be expecting a whole lot out of those two figures if its taking this long to see at least a glimpse of them.

Sorry Sabrblade, the TCC is offically hooked in to Hasbro. As such, Hasbro will give them a a figure or two which they get to debut in their club comic/mag. Once the this issue of the comic/mag is in the hands of the collectors the pics will go up all over the web.

Yeah, most sites (including us) choose to respect the wishes of this publication by not hosting these images. TCC wants these pictures to seen first (and exclusively) by its members.

As for the pix themselves, Hotshot looks good. The Dinobot images? Hm, what can I say about this? From what I can tell, it's mis-transformed (robot feet are facing backwards) maybe other parts are wrong too, I don't know...

I can see that what the goal of this toy's designer's was >> a cool *new interpretation* of this character. In some ways it's very nice, stylish. But *not* altogether show accurate, which is all that I was hoping for.

BW Dinobot is probably my favorite single character in all of the Transformers Mythology. I was hoping for more, the colors of this toy are not particularly show accurate. The Velociraptor is very 'raptor accurate, just not necessarily BW cartoon 'raptor accurate. He is dark brown w/ light tan stripes (when the show depicted him the other way around). The robot components of bot mode lack the light metallic blue (like the show) coloring that I was hoping for...

Like I said, the toy looks mis-transformed and surely we'll get better pictures in time. We'll see.

Can't wait to get it. I would like to see the next issue on Transtech so bad. I like mighty muggs Soundwave and Smokescreen.

What is a "Mighty Mug?" I have no idea. I can't figure out if it's 1 inch tall, 2 feet tall. Is it something I'm supposed to be able to drink my coffee out of in the morning or maybe it's an inflatable balloon? Maybe it's a lego piece? I look at that picture, and I just have no idea what it's supposed to be. Please advise!!!

You can look at the Star Wars ones in many toy sellers.

They are basically desk decorations.

I'd not buy them myself - i think they are about 6 or 7 inches tall more or less.

they have a very plain appearance with most or all of the detail being painted on not molded in and a sort of Chibi semi-japanese style.

I personally find them quite UN-appealing.

Sounds very interesting, I'd have liked to have seen that.

What i've read. Dinobot is going to be a beast war style figure not a G1 dinobot.
Mighty Maximal said,  - 2008-09-29 16:25:09
Wheelie's right it's Beast Wars Dinobot not "a Dinobot" but "The Dinobot".

If pics can't be posted, can anyone please describe the Legends Warpath, Wheelie, and Rodimus? Are they really new molds? Thx!
