The Collectors Club has posted a reminder that the time to sign up for the third Figure Subscription Service is nearly elapsed, with registration closing at midnight on October 2nd! (We recommend signing up no later than the 1st, as confusion has occurred previously over what "midnight" of a given date precisely means). Along with this reminder, a new storyline is being posted through the Facebook page for Tornado which is to deal with the origin of Starscream's "G2" body. Keep reading to check out the first installment!

We've mirrored these pages, so click through and check them out, and then head over to transformersclub.com

The Collectors Club has posted the next promo image from Subscription Service 3, featuring Carzap who is based on an unproduced G2 Windbreaker recolor from the planned Japanese Block Town line using Kre-O and including a Kreon GB Blackrock figure. Carzap is based on the body used for IDW Bumblebee/Goldfire/Nightbeat/Go-Shooter with a new unique headsculpt for this character. Keep reading to see the full size promo shot!
As we predicted last night, the fifth TFSS 2 shipment contained Chromedome with Stylor Arms Micron, and as usual Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna has brought us our first look at the figures in hand today via a flood of shots posted to his Twitter timeline. As usual, we've also transcribed the text of the bio card included, so keep reading for that and to see all the pictures!
With all the reveals for Subscription Service 3, some may have forgot briefly that the second subscription is still in progress. Today from Allspark's Powered Convoy we've gotten word that the fifth figure strongly believed to be Chromedome has begun shipping to subscribers. In general this means we'll have first photos to show you as soon as tomorrow, and secondary retailers should receive their supplies shortly after. This will leave only one further shipment, containing Rewind and the "mystery" "bonus" figure whose identity was leaked previously.
Amid a great outcry of inappropriate mold choice and deco that failed to defeat the body shape to evoke the intended character, the Collector's Club has posted a revised boxart piece for Subscription Service 3 Tarantulas. Having increased the intended paint operations, including added detail to the face, they're hoping to satisfy as much fan concern as possible with this figure. Still missing are the stripe details on the legs of the included Arms Microns, another loudly referenced negative change from the initial Botcon reveal. Keep reading to compare the new and yesterday's versions!
Following up this evening's initial reveal of Krok with full character art, the toy mock up images have also been discovered uploaded to the TFCC web store. These do not feature art of the characters, but do show some minor deco variations versus the first reveals at Botcon, indicating these are more current demonstrations of what the final toys will look like, seemingly having now passed through deco budget barriers, though some like Nacelle have come away improved compared to their initial concepts! Keep reading to see the whole set.
John DeLuna of Radio Free Cybertron has managed to be the first on the block with the most recently shipped figure from the Subscription Service offerings, and as usual he's given us a bunch of photos on his Twitter. I'll just say our speculation of what this month's shipment would contain was correct, and leave you to click through to see the pictures John has allowed us to mirror and learn the identity for yourself!
The Allspark's Powered Convoy has posted a short time ago to let everyone know that FedEx tracking numbers are now being received for the fourth figure in this year's subscription service batch. Based on previous patterns, subscribers in Texas could receive this figure as early as tomorrow. Secondary retailers offering individual figure purchases for non-subscribers should begin receiving stock shortly after that. Keep reading if you're interested in our educated speculation about what figure will be arriving this month!
Following the announcement last night, TFCC has posted via their website and Facebook a Photoshop mockup of the figure itself. This demonstration image uses art to represent the new sculpt head, but otherwise gives a good indication of what the planned deco should look like on an actual toy. The only concern at the moment is whether the fairly ornate Prime head will have to be on the small side to fit in space provided by the toy. Keep reading to see both images mirrored here.
By way of their Twitter account, TFCC has revealed that following membership premium figure Lio Convoy, the first of 2015's figures exclusively for sale via the members' store will be IDW's Nova Prime, also based on Generations Orion Pax. Only depicted in the form of character art for now, we can at least presume both exclusives will share the new tooling head and a majority of plastic colors. Keep reading and see the full image!
An image of the "secret" seventh Transformers Collector's Club Subscription Service 2.0 figure has appeared on eBay. It's not a particularly big surprise, but will probably be a welcome addition as it complements previous figures in the service. We're not mentioning it by name because toy spoilers are apparently now a thing and we wouldn't want to be ejected from the fandom. Keep reading for the photo!
Via the Cybertron Cafe group on Facebook, we have confirmation on the "freebie" 7th bonus figure for Figure Subscription Service 2.0. While its identity has been widely speculated based on the mold choices of the rest of the series, all of that has just been conjecture so far until this image which confirms one of the popular guesses. This may count as spoilers for some, so keep reading to learn its identity!
BaCon is at BotCon 2014 and got to go to the Transformers Fan Experience at Universal Studios Hollywood, and came back with a really nice "Energon" glass, a poster, and gift bag as souvenirs! Keep reading the article to check them out!
