Members of the otherwise-defunct Collectors Club today have received a new update about TFSS 5. The final subscription set which was originally planned to be delivered in advance of the Club's license elapsing at the end of December 2016 is now expected to begin shipping to subscribers in March, at the earliest. The message regarding this latest delay cites the failure of the cargo vessel to depart before Chinese New Year as a contributing factor. You can find the full text of the latest update quoted below.

Slated for 2017 and with no details yet given, it's far too early to know what shape Hasbro's new Transformers Fan Club will take. But even if we don't know what it will
be, we probably all have thoughts on what it should
be. RAC definitely does - and he feels the time is ripe for a change. Keep reading for his thoughts on the issue, this time written in the first
Brian from Radio Free Cybertron has let us know there's another big announcement today: there's a new Transformers Fan Club coming in 2017! Details are light at the moment - but in the meantime Hasbro has also announced a new Transformers Newsletter which will keep you posted on the Fan Club developments - and, if you sign up for it, will also
provide you with a 20% Off Hasbro Toy Shop coupon code! Keep reading for a link to the signup page!
Via Facebook, The Collector's Club has shared a photo of a packaging sample of their Ninja Force GI Joe/Transformers crossover exclusive set. Making a point to demonstrate the collector-friendly nature of the packaging, it's explained how a plastic sleeve easily slides off or on the inner tray of the box, allowing the included figures to easily be taken out or replaced as you choose. The inner flap also contains the background of Megatron's brief affiliation with Cobra, and establishes the context of Ratbat, and the Autobots Black Cat and Toaster in the set. We've mirrored the photo along with the previous packaging mockup for your convenience - keep reading!
Apparently there was a bit of a goof at the Collector's Club Facebook page today, as the upcoming Transformers/GI Joe crossover exclusives were advertised as available for purchase. This was in error and the post removed, but not before someone managed to get a screencap of the attached images. Here we can see the individual card mockups for Only Human Arcee and Rodimus, plus the box that the Ninja Force crossover pack will come in. Sounds like these may be close to going up for sale now. Keep reading to check out the preview!
Thanks once again to John DeLuna, we also have pictures of the seventh "bonus" figure that ships alongside Impactor. While the identity of the figure was revealed unofficially a while back thanks to an image from an overseas auction, we are in this one case avoiding making direct mention of the character in case you managed not to be spoiled then and truly want a surprise with your final shipment. Beyond this point is a nice gallery of photos revealing the toy, so beware!
John DeLuna from Radio Free Cybertron is once more bringing us our very first look at the newly shipped Transformers Figure Subscription Service 4 toy! No surprise here as the final figure of the batch, it's Impactor! And we have lots of nice pictures showing it off, along with the pile of accessories seemingly randomly borrowed from Generations Arcee. Get a close look at the new headsculpt and the deco, plus see a shot of the bio card - click through to find it all in the gallery below!
Thanks as ever to John DeLuna
of Radio Free Cybertron who has done his usual excellent job in providing photographic coverage of a new fresh release from the Collectors Club. Armada Skywarp is this year's club store exclusive, reusing the new tooling from the membership freebie Universe Ramjet.
This fills out the Armada Seeker trio alongside Hasbro or TakaraTomy Starscream and Legends Series TakaraTomy Starscream Super Mode (AKA Thundercraker). We've got a nice selection of photos for you to enjoy, so keep reading and get started!
Once again thanks to John DeLuna, we have some nice in hand shots of the finished Thunder Mayhem combiner. The photos show some basic overviews of the combined form, plus armed with the large swords. We get up close detail shots of the Thunder Mayhem head as well, showing off the quality level of its sculpting and the way it fits in to the style of the rest of the toy. To see photos of Bludgeon solo, check out the earlier post here.
Keep reading for the Thunder Mayhem gallery!
Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna has gotten his Subscription Service Bludgeon! As is customary, John is posting a ton of high-quality pictures of the figure, a remold of Combiner Wars Voyager Class Onslaught with new weapons, head, and combiner head. Keep reading to see!
So, uh, what the heck? We got a good firsthand look at all the souvenir figures the Transformers Collector's Club offered at BotCon 2016, and there was no sign of a Bluestreak. But here, off of Chinese Auction Site TaoBao, is that very figure. What's up with that? No idea, but you can get a look at the figure by clicking through to see the images!
Windsweeper is an update to the old G1 Triggercon. Unfortunately it uses one of the most overused molds of Combiner Wars; thus out of box, Windsweeper is a floppy mess. Thankfully the figure is meant to be a leg, and holds together in that form. If you're completing Thunder Mayhem Windsweeper is a necessary evil; if you're a die-hard Triggercon collector, you can pass on this figure.
As it has been so many times before, we have Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna to thank for bringing us excellent photos of the latest TFSS figure beginning to ship out now. Windsweeper is number four - unsurprisingly - and finishes out the limb robots for Thunder Mayhem. Also included is a surprisingly beautiful Creation Matrix accessory! You can have a look at the new figure for yourself in the album of mirrored photos below.
It's that time again for the latest addition to the TFCC FSS 4.0; and it's the near legendary, Spinister. Let me just say this is my favorite FSS figure thus far and the best use of the Alpha Bravo mold.
The joints are just the right tightness especially in the hips, which is important for arm mode. Being a Double Targetmaster, Spinister is armed; Vortex should've had this load out.
Prepare to pay if you're looking for this figure on the aftermarket; as I suspect it'll be one of, if not the most expensive from this collection.
With our thanks as always to John DeLuna from Radio Free Cybertron, we've got a great many excellent photos to share of the now-shipping third entry in TFSS 4 - Spinister. Yet another redeco of the Alpha Bravo mold, surely the unmatched workhorse mold of the Combiner Wars line, Spinister also comes with redecos of Generations Scoop's pair of Targetmaster partners. We've got good looks at both modes, the bio card and accessories, so keep reading and check it all out!
