Attendees

Pete Sinclair - Marketing and Magazine
Brian Savage - Senior Manager
Lanny Lantham - Graphic Design

Showing deisgns of stika, hoist, Megaplex, Skaywarp, Obsidian, Sandstorm, Electron, Mirage, Thundercraker, Hotlink, Sunstorm, Bitstream, Starscream

Designs are sent to China for manufacturing. Describes using PMS colors for making plastic pigments.

Starscream was the mold that gave them the idea to do MW Starscream and then they got the idea to do a whole MW theme. Decided to do a cohesive scaled set.

Faction graphics were remade to give military slant.

Mold chars show solid color of each part, The sheet maps which part is on the same mold tree based on the same color and type of plastic. These things dictate what can and cannot be done based on the molds and colors.

2013 Tech Spec Art

Sometimes things happen in an organic out of the blue. They looked for a style that would work after the Wings of Honor look. Looking for a MW artist, they found Josh Burcham. Who was brought in to do some tech spec art then the comic was handed over when the other artist could not complete the comic. Cover was done by Marcelo Matre.

They forgot to add the "To be continued..." but it will have another Diamond edition that will released.

The MW inspiration for the box window on the Con set. Showing different versions of the box art pre-window.

Dan Kahana did some of the robot art.

KBToys faux price sticker was Pete's idea. They checked out the old KB stickers and made a facsimile just like the KB with price strike out and all.

Convention pin as put inside the box wo they didn't have to put it on the box.

Next Year's figure will have a new head. Rampage incentive figure. From Protoform X megatron as Rampage.

There will be a club exclusive like runabout and drift. Transmutate!!!! Based on 1st edition Arcee Prime mold. Will have a back story comic to go with it to show who Transmutate would have been. Rampage will have some sense of humanity. Box will be a 2-pack with space for both toys.

TFSS 2.0 Figures will be formally

They decided to go with a thematic theme.

Chromedome using Prime Wheeljack deluxe mold
Treadshot using the Warpath Generations mold
Ironfist using the Swindle / Roabuster mold from the Fall Of Cybertron mold

Once they get the new web site launched, the new system will allow them to run the TFSS and BotCon services properly.

The TFCC FSS 4.0 is rolling on, with Grabuge, otherwise known as Ruckus! This figure is a fantastic repaint of Offroad, and the tightest version of the mold I've handled. If you're buying this on the secondary market it's a solid figure on its own.
What feels like an extremely short time after Needlenose, the first TFSS 4 figure shipped, today the first copies of the second figure are hitting subscriber mailboxes! Thanks to SeiberBirdR we now know the identity of the currently shipping figure is Grabuge - the trademark-rename of Ruckus. And we have some early photos to show what the final product looks like. We'll bring you more on this figure as it becomes available, and for now keep reading to see these first pictures, including a look at the bio!
Not a Transformers Collectors Club member, but have been drooling over the Transformers Subscription Figure 5.0 toys? If so, today is your lucky day as our site sponsor BigBadToyStore is serving up what you are hungy for without the hassle of signing up for the Transformers Collectors Club. BBTS have just placed all six of the 5.0 figures on pre-order slated to arrive in 2017, including: Lifeline With Quickslinger, Counterpunch, Fractyl With Scorponok, Megatron With Space Warp, Optimus Prime With Hi-Q, and Toxitron.
Here we are with another FSS, this time with a combiner theme. Needlenose is a double Targetmaster and a great update to the late G1 figure. The paint details pop, I especially like the metallic blue used for the nosecone. There is some tolerance issues with the grips on the Targetmasters, but nothing too bad. I'm excited to see how the other figures turn out.
The Transformers Collectors Club Facebook page has updated to announce that the order period for the fifth and final Transformers Figure Subscription Service is now underway. They note that currently only active Club members may order a subscription, but that a solution to allow any past member to order will be worked on over the coming few weeks. The order period is set to conclude on May 26th, the last Thursday in May. Along with the announcement are a set of new mockup images for the six revealed figures and a promise that secret number 7 has a head sculpt unused in the US. Keep reading to see the pictures!
