The Transformers Collectors Club has tweeted the first photo of a production sample Treadshot with Catgut. The physical copy looks very much like the mock-up imagery produced during the recent subscription drive. Notable in particular is Catgut is shown cast in two colors, rather than the solid single color typical of Arms Microns. Release of the second subscription is likely still quite a way in the future, but we should be seeing more sample shots like this in the meantime.
If you didn't sign up for the first Transformers Figure Subscription Service but you still want to get hands on Ultra Mammoth, we have good news. The Collector's Club
has just announced via Twitter that Ultra Mammoth and Jackpot are now available for purchase from the club's storefront. As always, club membership is required, but if you're a current member the club store has the best price I've seen so far!
Thanks to forums member Tambeyoda who has posted a video review of the Transformers Collector's Club Subscription Service Ultra Mammoth action figure. Get a look at the TFSS exclusive toy with an overview of the Transformers Animated based mold in robot mode and the alternate beast mode in the video below.
I think the TFCC saved the best for last. Ultra Mammoth is just a fun figure and you really don't get to many of those nowadays. Yes the transformation is a bit fiddly but robot mode is awesome. I can highly recommend getting at least one version of this mold.
Thanks to Brian Kilby, primary host of Radio Free Cybertron
and possibly the person most anticipating this figure, we have shots of Ultra Mammoth, the sixth and final figure in the first Transformers Figure Subscription Service. Thanks to a generously sized shipping box, it looks like damage during transit may not be a concern for this figure. Updated
with additional photos from Brian. Keep reading
