Thanks to John DeLuna we've got several more photos of the now-shipping subscription service 4 Needlenose, showing the figure in much better detail. With close up looks at both Targetmaster partners, as well as good looks at both modes to clearly see the new deco applied over the Firefly mold, this is our best look so far at the first out from this TFSS batch. Keep reading to see all of the photos!
The fourth subscription service, one of two running in this the final months of Fun Publications, has begun arriving to subscribers. Thanks to Portaltron we now have a few quick in-hand pictures of first arrival Needlenose. The Firefly/Fireflight recolor comes with its original accessories, plus redecos of Deluxe Scoop's Targetmasters Sunbeam and Zigzag - one of whom has had a rename, as revealed in the bio card. We have the pictures mirrored, so keep reading and check them out. We're bound to have more soon too, so keep watching right here for more updates!
Thanks to John DeLuna, we have images of the interior pages of the newest issue of the Transformers Collectors Club Magazine, showing off the full assortment of characters to come in the fifth - and final - Transformers Figure Subscription Service. While Double Pretender Megatron is undoubtedly the star (even featuring on the cover, as seen in an image from Protoman), Paradron Medic Lifeline gets a spotlight inside with full bio and character art. Keep reading to see all the images!
RAC and ExVee were at the TFCC panel, and we've got a rundown of the new reveals! Also questions answered about Terrorsaur's absent HandFootGun, the future of FunPub, the timeline for Subscription Service 5.0, and more! Keep reading to see it all!
The last day to become a member of the Transformers Collector's Club is tomorrow, March 16th - and on the eve of that final day, Fun Publications has posted an image displaying some things we knew about - and a couple we didn't! Namely, we have a look at "Only Human" figures of Rodimus Prime and Arcee, a shared exclusive with the GI Joe Collector's Club. Also, a clarification as to who will be eligible to purchase TFSS 5.0. Keep reading to see!
On episode 142 of the Cybercast YouTube show Pete Sinclair teased an upcoming BotCon 2016 figure. This figure was a recolor of Combiner Wars Air Raid done in red with a mouth painted on it, which looks to be Beast Wars Terrorsaur. You may recall the Dawn of the Predacus box art revealed a while back featured a red jet flying in the upper left corner. This appears to be this jet.
TCC Magazine #67! Issue 67 of the TCC Magazine is starting to arrive. What will you get? ALL KINDS of great content including never before seen Transformers "Battle Beasts" designs from the 80's, the start of the new TCC comic story arc "Of Masters and Mayhem", the Back page feature with a comic by the very talented Josh Perez and first looks at the TFSS 5.0 figures Double Pretender Optimus Prime w/ HI-Q and Paradron Medic w/ Quickslinger.
John DeLuna has also shared tonight some pictures from the Club magazine featuring membership premium figure Ramjet, and Club Store exclusive Skywarp, both based on the Generations Armada Starscream tooling. The image of Ramjet gives a good look at the new face sculpt, plus the deco giving it the look of a glowing mouth. And we also get a look at a mockup of the packaging for Skywarp, taking heavily after classic Armada packaging. Keep reading to see both pictures!
As promised some while back, the newest TFCC magazine issue contains a preview for the fifth iteration of the Transformers Figure Subscription Service, which was announced even before the fourth had all its production samples revealed. Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna has tweeted out a photo of the preview page, showing two of the upcoming figures. Unsurprisingly there's a reuse of the Oilmaster Pretender shell created for Botcon 2015's boxset, and a not-so outside the box reuse of Generations Arcee. Keep reading to see what they are!
The Transformers Collector's Club has posted the first part of a new prose story by Andrew Hall!

Keep reading to see the cover illustration and get a link to the download page!
They must have heard us talking about them, as The Club has just followed up their reveal of Thunder Mayhem with a decent look at Impactor, the Rook retool that joins the fourth subscription set. This is also set to come with Generations Arcee's assortment of weapons, and is demonstrated here using one of the swords in place of Impactor's traditional harpoon attachment. We were able to enlarge the image just enough to get a decent view of the details of the new head sculpt, so you'll find that image along with the mirrored original below.
The Collectors Club Twitter account has just released a first image showing the combined form of the Mayhem Attack Squad that make up TFSS 4. Thunder Mayhem features a new combiner head sculpt based distinctly on Thunderwing's appearance in the Marvel comics, and is armed with the giant swords from Transformers Go! Optimus Exprime. This photo also offers a first glimpse at the production sample for Impactor, though that toy's new head sculpt is not particularly visible. Click through to have a look.
Via Twitter, the Collectors Club has posted new photos of their near-final production samples of the Mayhem Attack Squad figures from the 4th TFSS group. The figures are now seen in their robot modes, and in Bludgeon's case, includes a close up of the newly sculpted head. We also learn that the included Matrix accessory is being called the Matrix of Malice, and will come with Windsweeper. Presumably we'll finally be getting to see the combined mode sometime soon as well. Meanwhile, click through and have a look at the figures.
Over on Facebook, the Transformers Collectors Club has shared a photo showing a production sample group from the fourth Figure Subscription Service. Seen here in vehicle mode are the Mayhem Attack Squad in what is probably at least close to final decos. Of course Impactor is not pictured with this group, and there is the secret "bonus" figure which will go unseen until the end of the shipping cycle for this set. With production samples now, it looks like these toys could start shipping earlier than in past years. Keep reading to see the mirrored photo.
Today on the Transformers Collectors Club Store it was discovered that the descriptions for club memberships has been changed slightly, indicating that any memberships purchased starting now will expire in December of 2016. This has led to speculation that the Club may be ceasing operations after that point. Another indicator to that outcome is similar language appearing in Joe Club membership descriptions today. With the recent announcement of a TFSS 5 in the planning, this comes as a great surprise, and raises questions about the future of the Club and Botcon itself. We reached out to Fun Publications' Pete Sinclair for comment, keep reading to find out what we learned.
