To accompany this, Fun Pub has posted a video to YouTube revealing the identity of "The Thief." Keep reading to see for yourself!

On the Collectors Club Twitter account today, Fun Publications made a shockingly long overdue statement. Once G2 Starscream, the second of two uses of the Classics Seeker mold in Figure Subscription 3 has been produced, they have no further plans to utilize the figure or its derivatives. While there are still many potential decos that fans of the mold would eagerly accept, it seems that they will go unfulfilled. Perhaps the Fall of Cybertron equivalent mold will find itself filling those shoes going forward? Keep reading to see the original tweet.



Over the weekend we brought you an early analysis of a screenshot from an episode of Cybercast featuring an interview with Pete Sinclair of Fun Publications where several toys could be seen that may be Botcon exclusives for this year. Since then we've continued analyzing the image and have made some updates and corrections to our original conclusions, and one may suggest a surprising move for convention exclusive toys - or we might be seeing another surprise entirely. If you're interested in toy spoilers in advance of official reveals, keep reading...



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!
