Hello and welcome to Thats Just Prime! Ep75! Today were taking a look at Transformers Collector's Club 2015 Member Exclusive Lio Convoy! Read on to watch the video review now.
One of the nicest discoveries I’ve made since embracing modern Transformers lines in recent years are the Transformers Collector’s Club exclusives. Not all of them have appealed to me, but since finding some deluxe class gems in the Revenge of the Fallen, Animated, Prime and Beast Hunters lines, and then completing the repaint list for each, I’ve come to appreciate their TFCC counterparts.
Once again, John DeLuna from Radio Free Cybertron is benefitting from living within spitting distance of Fub Publications' home office and is among the first to receive the opening figure of the third subscription service. Carzap is a recolor and retool of Generations IDW Bumblebee based on a super obscure, canceled Japanese Generation 2 toy that would have come with a small block building kit. Whether this is pushing the line of obscurity past general appeal, who knows? But it certainly looks nice! Click through to check it out.
A Toaboa seller has posted an auction for a set of four repaints made from the Transformers Generations Waspintor. The title refers to them as "IDW Transformers Classics Bumblebee Warriors Botcon 2015" Its not sure, but the current guess is these could appear at Botcon as a set made up of Buzzsaw, Halloween Horrorcon Waspinater, and two other unidentified colors. Share your guesses in the comments below.
Radio Free Cybertron's John DeLuna is once again among the first to deliver on photos of fresh Collectors Club merchandise.

We've got the mirrored photos, click through and check it out!
