Here we are with another FSS, this time with a combiner theme. Needlenose is a double Targetmaster and a great update to the late G1 figure. The paint details pop, I especially like the metallic blue used for the nosecone. There is some tolerance issues with the grips on the Targetmasters, but nothing too bad. I'm excited to see how the other figures turn out.
The Transformers Collectors Club Facebook page has updated to announce that the order period for the fifth and final Transformers Figure Subscription Service is now underway. They note that currently only active Club members may order a subscription, but that a solution to allow any past member to order will be worked on over the coming few weeks. The order period is set to conclude on May 26th, the last Thursday in May. Along with the announcement are a set of new mockup images for the six revealed figures and a promise that secret number 7 has a head sculpt unused in the US. Keep reading to see the pictures!
Thanks to John DeLuna we've got several more photos of the now-shipping subscription service 4 Needlenose, showing the figure in much better detail. With close up looks at both Targetmaster partners, as well as good looks at both modes to clearly see the new deco applied over the Firefly mold, this is our best look so far at the first out from this TFSS batch. Keep reading to see all of the photos!
The fourth subscription service, one of two running in this the final months of Fun Publications, has begun arriving to subscribers. Thanks to Portaltron we now have a few quick in-hand pictures of first arrival Needlenose. The Firefly/Fireflight recolor comes with its original accessories, plus redecos of Deluxe Scoop's Targetmasters Sunbeam and Zigzag - one of whom has had a rename, as revealed in the bio card. We have the pictures mirrored, so keep reading and check them out. We're bound to have more soon too, so keep watching right here for more updates!
Thanks to John DeLuna, we have images of the interior pages of the newest issue of the Transformers Collectors Club Magazine, showing off the full assortment of characters to come in the fifth - and final - Transformers Figure Subscription Service. While Double Pretender Megatron is undoubtedly the star (even featuring on the cover, as seen in an image from Protoman), Paradron Medic Lifeline gets a spotlight inside with full bio and character art. Keep reading to see all the images!
RAC and ExVee were at the TFCC panel, and we've got a rundown of the new reveals! Also questions answered about Terrorsaur's absent HandFootGun, the future of FunPub, the timeline for Subscription Service 5.0, and more! Keep reading to see it all!
The last day to become a member of the Transformers Collector's Club is tomorrow, March 16th - and on the eve of that final day, Fun Publications has posted an image displaying some things we knew about - and a couple we didn't! Namely, we have a look at "Only Human" figures of Rodimus Prime and Arcee, a shared exclusive with the GI Joe Collector's Club. Also, a clarification as to who will be eligible to purchase TFSS 5.0. Keep reading to see!
On episode 142 of the Cybercast YouTube show Pete Sinclair teased an upcoming BotCon 2016 figure. This figure was a recolor of Combiner Wars Air Raid done in red with a mouth painted on it, which looks to be Beast Wars Terrorsaur. You may recall the Dawn of the Predacus box art revealed a while back featured a red jet flying in the upper left corner. This appears to be this jet.
TCC Magazine #67! Issue 67 of the TCC Magazine is starting to arrive. What will you get? ALL KINDS of great content including never before seen Transformers "Battle Beasts" designs from the 80's, the start of the new TCC comic story arc "Of Masters and Mayhem", the Back page feature with a comic by the very talented Josh Perez and first looks at the TFSS 5.0 figures Double Pretender Optimus Prime w/ HI-Q and Paradron Medic w/ Quickslinger.
John DeLuna has also shared tonight some pictures from the Club magazine featuring membership premium figure Ramjet, and Club Store exclusive Skywarp, both based on the Generations Armada Starscream tooling. The image of Ramjet gives a good look at the new face sculpt, plus the deco giving it the look of a glowing mouth. And we also get a look at a mockup of the packaging for Skywarp, taking heavily after classic Armada packaging. Keep reading to see both pictures!
As promised some while back, the newest TFCC magazine issue contains a preview for the fifth iteration of the Transformers Figure Subscription Service, which was announced even before the fourth had all its production samples revealed. Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna has tweeted out a photo of the preview page, showing two of the upcoming figures. Unsurprisingly there's a reuse of the Oilmaster Pretender shell created for Botcon 2015's boxset, and a not-so outside the box reuse of Generations Arcee. Keep reading to see what they are!
The Transformers Collector's Club has posted the first part of a new prose story by Andrew Hall!

Keep reading to see the cover illustration and get a link to the download page!
They must have heard us talking about them, as The Club has just followed up their reveal of Thunder Mayhem with a decent look at Impactor, the Rook retool that joins the fourth subscription set. This is also set to come with Generations Arcee's assortment of weapons, and is demonstrated here using one of the swords in place of Impactor's traditional harpoon attachment. We were able to enlarge the image just enough to get a decent view of the details of the new head sculpt, so you'll find that image along with the mirrored original below.
The Collectors Club Twitter account has just released a first image showing the combined form of the Mayhem Attack Squad that make up TFSS 4. Thunder Mayhem features a new combiner head sculpt based distinctly on Thunderwing's appearance in the Marvel comics, and is armed with the giant swords from Transformers Go! Optimus Exprime. This photo also offers a first glimpse at the production sample for Impactor, though that toy's new head sculpt is not particularly visible. Click through to have a look.
Via Twitter, the Collectors Club has posted new photos of their near-final production samples of the Mayhem Attack Squad figures from the 4th TFSS group. The figures are now seen in their robot modes, and in Bludgeon's case, includes a close up of the newly sculpted head. We also learn that the included Matrix accessory is being called the Matrix of Malice, and will come with Windsweeper. Presumably we'll finally be getting to see the combined mode sometime soon as well. Meanwhile, click through and have a look at the figures.
