TFCC has posted a pair of new photos that seem to show a representative of the final production of their membership exclusive Lio Convoy figure. The character in this form was the star of their Beast Wars: Uprising timeline story "Broken Windshields" released earlier today. The recolor of Orion pax features a new head sculpt, though ultimately it seems the decorative flaring on either side of the helmet was indeed lost at some point during production. Click through to check out the new pictures, and remember you need a valid, active membership as of March 16th to receive this figure!
While no pictures have surfaced just yet, we have word in from the first arrivals of the most recent issue of the TFCC Magazine which features the first reveal of Generations Legends Class Warpath. Unfortunately as had been rumored previously, the magazine reportedly verifies it is a recolor or minor retool of Generations Legends Megatron and so does not feature the signature chest cannon in robot mode. We will update with images as they become available, but otherwise watch here for Toy Fair coverage this weekend where we're sure to see this and much more!
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.
Pete Sinclair of Fun Publications was recently interviewed over video, and in the process seems to have let a bit too much fall in frame. Based on an enhanced screencap by well known fan Monzo, we've identified and highlighted the toys that are visible. The image is low-res, but with some work defining the edges the forms of the figures can be made out well enough. Of course this is likely a spoiler for some of this year's convention toys, so please keep that in mind before proceeding. For full info, keep reading!
FunPub has sent out a small holiday greeting today in the form of our first looks at production sample pieces of two figures from the third Transformers Figure Subscription Service. Absurdly obscure character Carzap from the IDW Bumblebee mold, Krok from stealth bomber Megatron, and Krok's pet Gatoraider from one of the many Arms Micron molds. Krok and Carzap both feature new heads which we're also getting our first real look at. Click through and check out the whole set of images!
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!

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!
