A user on ACToys has produced photos of a final sample of Tarantulas from the third iteration of the Collectors Club's subscription service offerings. The recolor of the Generations Junkion mold can be seen in robot and vehicle mode, though the Arms Microns it's planned to include are not seen in these photos. It remains to be seen if this use of the mold will share the problem of the previous ones where the hands can be damaged by holding its axe accessory. Click through to view both pictures!
Images of the TFCC Subscription Service 3.0 figures Nacelle and G2 Starscream have appeared on Chinese auction site Taobao. Hailed as the last FunPub uses of the Classics Seeker molds, Nacelle is based on a pre-release color scheme for Thrust, and G2 Starscream is a bit more obvious. Keep reading to see!

This is the first image we've gotten of the final Seeker releases as jets, and all told they look pretty decent. G2 Starscream is based on something very obvious, while Nacelle is based on an early catalog mockup of G1 Thrust. Thanks to Beatleman65 for the Help! Keep reading to see the images.
On the Collectors Club Twitter account today, Fun Publications made a shockingly long overdue statement. Once G2 Starscream, the second of two uses of the Classics Seeker mold in Figure Subscription 3 has been produced, they have no further plans to utilize the figure or its derivatives. While there are still many potential decos that fans of the mold would eagerly accept, it seems that they will go unfulfilled. Perhaps the Fall of Cybertron equivalent mold will find itself filling those shoes going forward? Keep reading to see the original tweet.
Now that all of the interesting things have been leaked or otherwise shown one way or another, it's time to get in to the rest of the third Figure Subscription Service, starting with Nacelle. Once again dragging the Classics Seeker mold out of bed, Nacelle uses the unique parts created for Botcon 2007's Thrust and applies what must be an alarming amount of paint to emulate a never-produced deco from a catalog image featuring the G1 mold. Click through to check that out, and remember this batch has another
of this mold in it...
Over the weekend we brought you an early analysis of a screenshot from an episode of Cybercast featuring an interview with Pete Sinclair of Fun Publications where several toys could be seen that may be Botcon exclusives for this year. Since then we've continued analyzing the image and have made some updates and corrections to our original conclusions, and one may suggest a surprising move for convention exclusive toys - or we might be seeing another surprise entirely. If you're interested in toy spoilers in advance of official reveals, keep reading...
Clearly trying to take some control and get in front of the unauthorized leaks, Fun Publications has posted a single photo of Subscription Service 3's Serpent O.R. figure to their Facebook page. Based on a robotic form of GI Joe villain Serpentor, this recolor of Generations Scourge (featuring the unreleased to the US Ratbat head) uses a number of strategic paint apps to suggest snake features and give Serpentor's traditional costume colors.

Can we get the entirety of Figure Subscription Service 3 revealed before the end of the day? We're making good progress toward that as Photobucket user "Xamot" has posted two new images of Krok, a retool of IDW stealth bomber Megatron, complete with Gatoraider Arms Micron partner. The same user also put up a photo of a few bagged samples of Carzap leading to speculation these may be the first two pieces in TFSS 3. Of course, Fun Publications could choose to shuffle the order now to maintain surprise. Click through for the photos!
Following our first look at Lio Convoy, we've also found a listing for Carzap giving us a comprehensive look at this figure's presumably final production state. This sample seems to lack the Kreon GB Blackrock accessory set tying the character to its incredibly obscure Block Town origins, but gives a good look at this figure which will ship as part of Transformers Figure Subscription Service 3 later this year. Keep reading to check out all the mirrored photos!
Ebay seller lena81822 has turned up once again with a first in hand look at a new toy. The Orion Pax recolor Lio Convoy is due in the next few months as the yearly freebie figure given to everyone who has an active subscription to the Transformers Collectors Club. Notable on this sample, where the original mockup showed wide ornamental fins on the sides of the head, those are absent and appear as though they've been cut off
after the head came out of the mold. The Club's problems with new head toolings seem like they might be coming around yet again! Click through to see the full mirrored gallery.
