More Collectors Club News
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...
Clearly trying to take some control and get in front of the unauthorized leaks, Fun Publications has posted a single photo of Subscription Service 3's Serpent O.R. figure to their Facebook page. Based on a robotic form of GI Joe villain Serpentor, this recolor of Generations Scourge (featuring the unreleased to the US Ratbat head) uses a number of strategic paint apps to suggest snake features and give Serpentor's traditional costume colors. Click through for the full size image!
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.
