Metal Clash!With only one day left to get the FREE membership figure, we are thrilled to give fans an inside look at the this years comic, appearing in each issue of the Club Magazine. "The Coming Storm" is a 36-page story, told in 6 page installments throughout 2010, that follows the adventures of the Generation 1 Elite Guard. The story takes place approximately 10 years after the events of Transformers Timelines Issue 4: "Wings of Honor." Fans will remember that "Wings of Honor" told the story of a young Kup on one of his first missions, a mission where he and his fellow teammates secured a most precious Autobot artifact. Due to the tremendous amount of bravery and skills shown in the field, they became the first of this "new" Elite Guard. Now, the Elite Guard corps has grown and these specially trained Autobots are looking to put an end to the Decepticon threat once and for all! To do that, they will need all the help they can get, and this means a new team of guardsmen...a team that fans will see in a whole new way!

Featured in this years Club Comic is Dion, the 2010 FREE membership figure. To receive this toy, 6 issues of the TCC Magazine and more, be sure to...Join Now!
