Transformers Botcon 2014 Convention Taken Hostage By Pirates?
BaCon - Monday, January 06, 2014

Ahoy Matey! Shiver me Timbers! TFW Member D-Drive shared an image from the Transformers Timelines #8: Termination comic that reveals BotCon 2014 may be sporting a Pirates theme this year. The gang over at FunPub like to get creative with their ideas and this one is a bit off the charts, as usual. It will remain to be seen how they configure Cybertron Canonball and the many other molds and color schemes to outfit their BotCon Armada that will be coming to Pasedena, CA June 19-22, 2014.ARGHhhhh!
They sailed across the inky-black where the heavens can't be found No light could show, no wind could blow, no soul could make a sound Yet each mech aboard, garbed for war, holding a cutlass or a gun and from the spotter above came the sign - We found Cybertron!

With all of the good molds this past year, I'm worried they'll be used for BotCon and I'll want to buy a set.

What actual line would a Pirates theme be from then? I got the MachineWars from last year...I don't recognize the Symbol on the flag.... :tfevil   Beast Wars II had Space Pirate Seacons.

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!
