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 official Transformers Collectors Club have posted a update to their Twitter account showing us the Issue 60 cover of the TCC Magazine. The illustration with "A New Breed of Destruction...
