Motto: "FOR THE EARTH!!!"
Weapon: Saber Blade
You know, with Hero Prime's bio making him be G2 Manga one-shot G2 Convoy, ya'll know who I'm hoping the Leobreaker-redeco Universe Leo Prime turns out to be? IDW Lio Convoy. Why? Well, a few reasons.

The first being the obvious. Universe Leo Prime's toy bio reflected that of the IDW character, despite the toy being named "Leo Prime" and the comic character named "Lio Convoy". Sure, one could just simply brush this discrepancy aside by saying "Well, the U.S. name wasn't fully made clear for the character at the time, so the Japanese name was used for the comic." I'm aware of this. But that brings me to point number 2.

Making him the IDW character with the name "Leo Prime" would be an excellent American parallel to what was done for the Japanese TF: Prime AM-28 Leo Prime toy. With that toy, its bio made the "Leo Prime" toy into an upgraded form of the BWII Lio Convoy cartoon character, establishing him as a post-Beast Wars Neo Convoy Council elder having succeeded the deceased Great Convoy as "Great Lio Convoy". And with his new TF: Prime body came a new name for himself.

The Universe toy could serve as a similar body upgrade to the IDW version of the character, and would explain his new name as having simply come with his new form. Therefore, America's comic Lio Convoy would be upgrading into the body of a toy with a new name, just as Japan's cartoon Lio Convoy had done when he upgraded into the body of his new-named TF: Prime toy. :D

I'm assuming this means that the figures are being shipped over with all of the BotCon exclusives to save on transport costs. Because of this delay, they are unsure when the 2nd installment payment will be due for those of you who went with the payment option.


... Delayed AGAIN? Anyone else think this is ridiculous?


Sign up for FSS, recieve 6 figures, with the first one shipping end of Jan 2013.

January comes and goes, we get told it's Hasbro's fault and to expect the first figure in April/ May.

April comes, we're now told that the first figure won't ship until after Botcon, which means at least Mid July.

Mid July for the first figure? We we supposed to have all six figures by then!

Nah, seems totally reasonable to me :D

Wouldn't be surprised at this point if the Club started advertising 2014's FSS before we even get the first one for this year!

In other news: I wish Obsidian was staying Fluro Green and orange.

TFSS figs were going to ship one every two months, so by then we should've received three of them.

I really hope that they get their stuff in line.

Figure Subscription Service Terms And Conditions wrote:"FIGURE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE INFORMATION AND TERMS AND CONDITIONS

When you subscribe to the Transformers Collectors’ Club Figure Subscription Service (FSS), you will receive 1 figure a month for six months. We will notify you when the first shipment is ready for shipping but it will be approximately 8-12 weeks after the close of the subscription period. This is an optional service and is not included with your Club Membership. You must be al Member in order to subscribe to the FSS."


Nope, 1 per month for 6 months.

I hope by the time they actually get the figures they will try and "catch up" - say, send them out in two shipments of 3 figures each. It would be nice.

Ahh, I was wrong. My bad. I would love it if they played catchup and sent out batches of figs instead of one at a time.

I certainly don't expect it, but it would be nice.

The first thing I remember was Universe Sunstreaker, oh what a comotion that stirred up.

I take your word for it but it doesn't ring any bells. I wasn't far off then. I really wish they were able to do that kinda stuff much more often. The internet being so prevalent in every day life though, I can imagine it isn't easy. This issue looks like a pretty nice win. The Marvel nod, the new deco for Obsidian (looks better IMO, though I was fine with the previous choice) and the Hoist reveal. Now if we could only get them to ditch the useless garbage on the back cover. I'd rather get another page of comic, bios, or you know, anything entertaining. I consider myself a pretty big fan on nearly every facet of the fandom and none of that appeals to me in any way.
