And yet ANOTHER Botcon on the west coast. WTF is up with Hasbro holding it out west 3 of the last 5 years? The mid-west and east coast need some loving also.

Maybe 2 weeks before Comic Con? I guess they couldn't get Anaheim again? Honestly Fun Pub needs to go with the same dates every year instead of jumping around all the time

Now that we can see the silhouettes it doesn't seem like they're really hinting at any possible figures aside from maybe RtS G2 Prime for MW Prime. Soundwave, Starscream, and Megatron are all in their MW forms, not updated. Galvatron is just G1 Galvatron, not even Generations Galvatron. I th... read more

We got the startings of a new Transformers Fan Club last winter with a mailing list Hasbro was assembling... but it's been dormant since then. But it looks like the new Club could be on the horizon! To be honest, there's a lot of supposition in here. But a new piece of information from the TFWiki Twitter regarding yesterday's official Titans Return Arcee reveal has got us thinking, and there's a fair bit of circumstantial evidence that adds up. Keep reading to see where we're going with this!
The time has come for the end of Fun Publications' licensed Transformers offerings, with the final shipment of TFSS 5 now reaching subscribers. By process of elimination we knew this shipment would be Toxitron and Counterpunch, the final parts needed to make the Wreckage combiner. And amazingly we managed to make it all the way to this point without the bonus figure being spoiled! We'll respect the desire for those who want to remain unknowing, so you'll have to click through to learn the final figure's identity. We've got several photos thanks to SeiberBirdR who did a quick post-unboxing shoot. Check them out below!
The last series of Figure Subscription Service offerings from the now-defunct Transformers Collectors Club is continuing to slowly be fulfilled. Subscribers will be finding the second shipment arriving in the next few days, with those lucky - and local to the Fun Pub office - already getting toys in hand. PumaTheHunter on Twitter is one such, and he's posted a nice batch of photos showing Double Pretenders Optimus and Megatron. Most of the focus is on Megatron, but both toys are represented nicely. Keep reading for more info, and of course the photos!
Thanks to a tip from Eric Crownover, who just got the first shipment of the final Transformers Figure Subscription Service! For those who may be wondering about Paradron Medic - who is a reuse of the 2014 Generations Arcee mold - we now know which set of hands she's using. Keep reading to see for yourself!
From SeiberBirdR we've got a first look at which toys are now on their way to subscribers of the final TFSS assortment. Shipping in pairs to get the toys distributed as quickly as possible, the first set is Fractyl with Scorponok, and Lifeline with Quickslinger, making for a very green and purple shipment. SeiberBirdR took quite a few photos of the toys as well as their bio cards. You can find all of those mirrored below in the gallery. Keep reading to see!
