Spoken to Ed about this elsewhere,
I think some He-Man content would be good, but we want to show off TMUK and what it does, He-Man isn't a regular part, but I think some faux He-Man toy pack-in comics would be a treat though, and the more stuff on the table the merrier.
Okay guys, I feel the answer is staring us in the face. Let's examine the facts:
1: This is a GI Joe/Transformers convention 2: Andy wants this to be a G2 fanzine 3: There was a GI Joe/Transformers crossover at the start of G2.
The fanzine should be a Transformers/GI Joe crossover sequel set at the end of G2, detailing the battle as GI Joe and the Transformers team up to repel Jihaxus's invasion of Earth! And everyone can tell a bit of the overall story.
(I just want to write a story of GI Joe employing Dr Mindbender to rebuild all the Autobots Megatron wrecked in the original crossover and bling them all up G2 style)

A post G2 TF/Joe crossover would be more interesting.
After all as a major city has been wiped out by a faction claiming to be Decepticons, and Optimus is now insistent following his contact with The Swarm that they must all assume Primus' mantle as guardians of life. That is not going to sit well.
You can still get your Mindbender story in there, but we actually have a more interesting backstory to hang the magazine on.

Okay - we have a title (thanks Mr Kiernan!)
Transformers VS GII Joe: GENERATION 2 AFTERSHOCKS!
Matt is working on a text story just now. As with any proper decent TMUK zine, we'll have some strips, profiles and if anyone wants to write an article or two by all means.
Ostensibly set in the aftermath of G2 Issue 12, but flashbacks to the climactic battle are of course, welcome and encouraged.
I have a rough idea for a strip, not really got it in place yet - it does involve the resolution of Ratchet (not a surprise) and a cementing of Prime/Megatron's allicance.
Following Frisco's destruction, humanity is not big on Transformers and while the Joe's might have had some respect/comradeship with them. An entire city was wiped out by a group claiming to be Decepticons and now Optimus is friends with some of them.
