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!
The Official TFCC page drops the next reveal in their series of Figure Subscription Service 3.0 toys. Next up is Tarantulas who is shown in robot and beast modes that we are informed are mockups and final figures will vary from the images shown. Additionally, we get a look at his character art work as well. Read on to see the full preview
Just out on the official Transformers Collectors' Club site is the new image and details for the Transformers Figure Subscription Service 3.0 #2 Nacelle action figure. As promised they are re-introducing these toys along that were announced at BotCon 2014 last summer. Get a look at the TFSS 3.0 - the Decepticon Seeker Nacelle figure in both modes along with character artwork and more details now.
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.
The official Transformers Collectors' Club facebook page updates with news of the online roll-out of their TFSS 3.0. While they announced all six figures at BotCon this summer, we only saw the preliminary mock ups.

Read on to see the full details and a look at the Krok figure and character artwork.

The TFCC has posted another mockup image of their upcoming Marissa Faireborn and Afterburner set. Introduced in G1 cartoon season 3, Marissa Faireborn was subtly hinted to be the child of GI Joes Flint (Dashiell Faireborn) and Lady Jaye. The figure is made from the GI Joe Resolute Scarlett mold and includes a flamethrower; her Autobot bike partner Afterburner does not seem to transform. Keep reading to see the photo!
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!
