Transformers Collectors' Club Exclusives and Subscription Figures

Motto: "Whatever happened to Saturday night, When you dressed up sharp and you felt alright?"
Weapon: Electron Scimitar Sword
The Transformer collector club's website has updated with a preview image for one of next year's subscription service figures. The placeholder shows the head of Treadshot, who is a redeco of Generations Warpath
Image

The page has also been updated with previews of the member exclusive Transmutate from TFP first edition Arcee,

Image
and Rampage from TFP first edition megatron
Image
Image

The images are from TFW because the TFCC page is being a bit fickle and not cooperating

The Official Transformers Collectors' Club has teased an image of one of the figure's form next year's TFSS 2.0. It's only a headshot, but the figure is an Action Master Treadshot redeco of the Generations Deluxe Warpath Mold. Check out the small teaser image below.

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
The Official Transformers Collectors' Club has also put up official images of next year's membership incentive figure Rampage, and 2014 club exclusive Transmutate.

Rampage is redco of the Transformers Prime First Edition Deluxe Megatron mold with a new head sculpt. This figure will mail out to those with active memberships as of March 16th, 2014.

Transmutate is redeco of Transformers Prime First Edition Deluxe Arcee. According to the TFCC panel at this year's BotCon the figure will come in the typical TFCC exclusive style boxed packaging with a foam insert that will accommodate Rampage, just like their previously released Runamuck/Runabout set.

Check out the images mirrored below, which include a a head turnaround for Rampage.

Image

Image

RAMPAGE is the Transformers Collectors' Club FREE Membership Incentive Figure for 2014! This figure will be sent to any Transformers Collectors’ Club member whose membership is active as of March 16, 2014. RAMPAGE features an ALL-NEW head sculpt and will come with his weapon and an exclusive Tech Spec. Members can expect to receive this figure, with all of his accessories, in late spring/early summer.

It is far from obvious that inside the cheerful “Transmutate” lies a swirling maelstrom of destructive energies that could spell devastation for all those around her. While lesser robots would obsess over how they could use such power for their own personal gain, “Transmutate” focuses instead on the beauty of all she encounters. Even the mundane fills her with wonder. More then once she has removed panel overlays to study the intricate web of circuit pathways, memory buses, and diodes that make up its construction. Her interaction with other Maximals is no different, treating each new acquaintance like something to inspect. Even those often held in regard as "monsters" can bring her a moment of fascination.

TRANSMUTATE is a Deluxe sized figure and will be featured extensively in the 2014 TCC Magazine Club comic alongside RAMPAGE. The toy is packed in a convention style box with a foam insert for easy removal and display.

So far the Subscription Service is looking less and less appealing.

I mean, Transmutate? wasn't the whole point that Transmutate could not transform, was peaceful and child like?

This is kind of silly.

Don't get me started of the lazy repaint of Warpath either. Already used twice by the club this year. Its unimaginative and lazy.

Hasbro did a legends one, maybe they're going to do a larger one down the road? Unlikely, but you never know.

Just to be clear Transmutate in not part of the subscription service. It's a separate 2014 club exclusive.

So which (original) action masters have gotten transforming toys? Is this list complete? Seriously, it's a pretty decent set of action master bots, all things considered. It's just about a Botcon box set worth. LOL. After they're all out, someone should take a grand group photo.

Rampage. Oh, yes, that will be the one to get me to sign up for the Club. =P~ But, not right now.

Transmutate, we'll see. :-?

Had hoped they'd do a new head, but after looking at this...

Mighty tempting, this is. The price will be the deal breaker.

Really? Damn, since I don't give a **** about the comics (especially the Club comics) I guess I need to burn my Depth Charge and skip both of these then :P.

It may be true, but how "important" it is, to most of us, I think, is quite debatable and I guarantee that most of those of us acquiring him fully intend for him to be Protoform X from the Beast Wars show.

As for Transmutate, I've got the one that was pieced together via collecting the 10th Anniversary figures, so I'll be skipping her in all likelihood, although that paint job does look interesting on Arcee.

They will be on my shelf. The Club writes some decent fiction, but in the end it's just another BW homage.

Well... they are and the aren't.

It's kinda like how there's Optimus Prime of the G1 cartoon and Optimus Prime of the G1 Marvel Comics. They're both "G1 Optimus Primes" but different versions. Same with these guys.

Instead of being the Beast Wars Cartoon versions of these guys, they hail from a different universe that never underwent the events of the Beast Wars cartoon aside from "Depth Charge hunted down and captured Protoform X". Currently, this universe has no name beyond its universal stream designation "Primax 209.0 Gamma".

The reason the Club is making these toys is because they're going to expand upon the story revolving around the Depth Charge who came from this world.

As I find this world to be fascinating, I made a topic about it with all its known info. :mrgreen:

I'm really digging his faction insignia. I was a bit irritated before when he was shown at BotCon with the Predacon symbol, which didn't make much continuity sense. But now he's just got a bad looking X on his chest that works perfectly.

Also, I've got my high grade energon ready to take a shot.
