Shortly after the TFCC tweeted a picture of the final sample of the 2014 club exclusive Protoform X figure in alt mode, they provided an image of the figure in robot mode. This is the membership incentive figure for those who sign up for the Transformers Collectors' Club by March 16. Check out how his robot mode looks in the image below.

Subscribed and now a member of the Club for the first time ever. :grin: Now I just got to learn the ropes...

So Rampage will start shipping around the end of April/mid-May, right?

Wow, this is amazing! One of the few remolds "from one character to other" where it is debatable did it could be better than original Megatron's figure.

The answer to this is simple: This isn't the Beast Wars cartoon continuity version of the character. This is Transmutate from the new Beast Wars: Uprising storyline, which is a completely different universe from that of the cartoon. Depth Charge and Protoform X are likewise part of this universe as well.

Think the G1 cartoon vs. the IDW G1 comics. ;)


Is Transmutate even called by name in the comics?

Still more expensive than a normal toy, especially if you don't live in the US.
Which is kinda his point, he wants it, but not enough to spend 4 times as much as the mold originally cost.

So am I. I'm hoping they use some of those other comic's character's they established now, too, like the new Rattrap and Botanica forms.

I am also a huge BW fan. But as I said, I don't see this mold as fitting of Rampage. Alternate or not.

I totally see it. Prime Megatron's mold is quite crab-like.

Yep. Although the comic parsed her name as "Trans-Mutate" (like the BW 10th Anniv. toy and this new toy).

Oh yeah! Alternate universe.
That's not an answer, it's an excuse. And at that, it's one that can only go so far until it doesn't work.
Sadly for TFCC naming the figure Tansmutate instead giving her an actual name, that excuse doesn't work.

Let's be honest here. It does't work... for you. For plenty of others, it works just fine.

You say that as if it's only me who finds it rather odd. I'm sure there are others.

If IDW can do its own new alternate version of G1 from scratch, why can't Fun Pub likewise do its own new alternate version of the Beast Era from scratch?
