By way of the Transformers Collectors' Club, the sixth and final (not counting the mystery bonus figure) TFSS 2.0 character has been revealed! No toy images yet, but the Club uploaded another image of a page from the comic that features these characters, "Timeless". The character is... Thrustinator, a frankensteining of sorts of the ever-popular Waspinator and his darker, broodier Beast Machines persona, Thrust. The model he uses appears to use Beast Wars II Dirgegun, a heavy retool of the original Waspinator toy, as a base mold.

This is the second TFCC toy named after a vibrator, yes?

Yeaaa, pretty much this.
I loved Waspinator, and I loved Thrust.
I'll be honest, I don't GET mixing them into one character...not at all....
But I'll probably get the toy just....because how could you pass up something that insane?

Same.

So far, all I really want from this set are Thrustinator, Barricade & Frenzy, and Fisitron/Ironfist.

I'd also like to bring up this: I read somewhere that Heinrad's comic model appears to use the Prime Knock Out mold. Could Heinrad be the bonus figure, fulfilling the Club's claim that it will go perfectly with one of these other figures?

Well, I honestly wasn't happy with how they treated Waspinator at the end of Beast Machines, so this is a much more ridiculously Waspinator fate that doesn't completely screw him over as a character. :grin:

So does this mean TFCC will be using the Dirgegun mold?

Presumably remolded, but yeah. Says so in the first post. ;)

Looks that way. I don't know if you caught the post when I first wrote it, but initially, I thought it was the upcoming Generations: Thrilling 30 Deluxe Waspinator toy and wrote it as such. It wasn't until I read a little more about it over at TFW2005 did I remember that Dirgegun, with the exact same tooling (with the exception of the head), came from the first Waspinator toy.

I kinda want to see if Hasbro (or more likely, Takara) will tackle Dirgegun and (since we're on the subject of Beast Wars II) Thrustor, from the upcoming Waspinator and the Universe (2009) Dinobot molds.

It didn't say that when I read it, and I'm sticking to it.

I still don't need the figure. I never collected the Cybermutants from BW2 so I feel no desire for this guy.

This is the first one from the set I do not want. I was really hoping for the Red wing Seeker.

I was hesitant to consider the 2014 TFSS 2.0 at first.

Treadshot didn't really interest me.

Chromedome had me thinking it was a nice idea, but I dunno.

Barricade impressed me, but I needed more of a push.

Fisitron looked neat, but a bit generic.

Rewind was predictable and one I didn't like.

The Arms Microns piqued my interest and were definitely tempting.

But, Thrustinator...

I hope you have that patented, because without a doubt I will be stealing that for my own purposes! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Watch this be that new waspinator toy mold but with a split down the middle (two-face from batman) paint job... and probably a retooled head.

It would be impossible for FunPub to get a hold of a mold that hasn't even been released yet. Like it was previously mentioned, Thrustinator will be retooled from Beast Wars II Dirgegun, itself a heavy retooling of the original Beast Wars Waspinator toy.

Wonder if his affiliation will be Predacon or Vehicon... :-?

That pondered, this one's a miss for me. I have no particular affection for BWII or its figures, so both Heinrad and Thrustinator fall down and disappoint. I'll still get the service, but I suspect I'll be selling a few of the figures after the fact.

Might keep Fisitron for sentimental value, but these last two do nothing for me.
