The time has come for the end of Fun Publications' licensed Transformers offerings, with the final shipment of TFSS 5 now reaching subscribers. By process of elimination we knew this shipment would be Toxitron and Counterpunch, the final parts needed to make the Wreckage combiner. And amazingly we managed to make it all the way to this point without the bonus figure being spoiled! We'll respect the desire for those who want to remain unknowing, so you'll have to click through to learn the final figure's identity. We've got several photos thanks to SeiberBirdR who did a quick post-unboxing shoot. Check them out below!
The last series of Figure Subscription Service offerings from the now-defunct Transformers Collectors Club is continuing to slowly be fulfilled. Subscribers will be finding the second shipment arriving in the next few days, with those lucky - and local to the Fun Pub office - already getting toys in hand. PumaTheHunter on Twitter
is one such, and he's posted a nice batch of photos showing Double Pretenders Optimus and Megatron. Most of the focus is on Megatron, but both toys are represented nicely. Keep reading for more info, and of course the photos!
Thanks to a tip from Eric Crownover, who just got the first shipment of the final Transformers Figure Subscription Service! For those who may be wondering about Paradron Medic - who is a reuse of the 2014 Generations Arcee mold - we now know which set of hands she's using. Keep reading to see for yourself!
From SeiberBirdR we've got a first look at which toys are now on their way to subscribers of the final TFSS assortment. Shipping in pairs to get the toys distributed as quickly as possible, the first set is Fractyl with Scorponok, and Lifeline with Quickslinger, making for a very green and purple shipment. SeiberBirdR took quite a few photos of the toys as well as their bio cards. You can find all of those mirrored below in the gallery. Keep reading to see!
Thanks to Eric Crownover for the heads up! After a delay from the "absolute" ship date of December 31st that was caused by Chinese New Year, among other factors, the final TFSS Subscription Service line, Series 5, begins shipping on or around March 14th. The Collector's Club is putting out the call for all subscribers to make sure their shipping and billing info are accurate. Keep reading for more info!

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!
