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.

The Transformers’ Collector’s Club has started their final clearance sale. In an email to former members, they announced the beginning of the final Clearance Sale. Everything in the store is 10% off with further 10% reductions, "Approximately every week," till they drop to 90% at which time, they will continue sales til all the stock is gone or the end of the year arrives. Read on to see the full members letter sent to the Club, courtesy of the Allspark.
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!
