Must say, he doesn't look bad. However, if I do get a subscription to the collectors club, I probably won't buy him because he's the exact same mold as lio convoy.

He's really not that different than Lio in colors... sure, the fin are gold vs. black, the different windshield, but they are both a lot of white... but this guy might look pretty good next to Generations Galvatron, Universe Cyclonus, Scourge, and if you stretch it, the upcoming Jhaxius...

Don't forget Straxus. He was also part of the Ark-1 crew, all of whom seem to have been given Deluxe toys. ;)

Though they share a common mold and the color white as a base, the deco differences seem fair enough:

He means the Commander size class of Takara's new Legends line. It's the hodgepodge "class" that the Optimus Primal and Lio Convoy re-releases are part of.

I don't think Ryan has a comparison yet of Pax and Robot Masters Lio Convoy.

I still feel like they could stand to at least be a different shade of white from each other or something.

From what I've heard on my end it's going to be a repaint of a Powerglide figure as a Rattler.

Powerglide as a Rattler seems unlikely since the only options are a giant Ultra or a small Legends figure. Only other figure left that would work is Avengers Thor. Problem there is he would need a new head, but the cape wouldn't be an issue for a Cobra Commander figure. Still a bit big as a deluxe.

There are three options, The Ultra which I think is out, the DOTM Commander, or the forthcoming Legends figure. I think the club will go smaller rather than bigger.

Isn't Cyberverse Commander Powerglide even smaller than the upcoming Legends figure? I've got one but I've never compared.

We're possibly forgetting the Energon A10? we were told in the past "No moreEnergon molds" and then Scorponokhappened. Of course, Skyfall practically IS a Cobra Rattler in color, just see-through, so maybe its too obvious...

Deluxes and up only. FunPub has confirmed nowadays Deluxes and larger figures are more cost-effective to do.

Ah OK, then he shouldn't fear much. I have the Robot Masters Primal and Megatron and they are smaller than a Universe (2008) Deluxe, Legends Lio Convoy should be about the same size as Funpub Lio Convoy.

Wasn't that figure considered a deluxe? It would make getting a newer head on there easier.

It was a Scout. The Energon combiner limbs were Scouts, while the torsos were Deluxes.

Plus, if they were to do another of those combiner limbs, folks might expect them to do a whole Nexus Prime-style combiner and be disappointed by the Club only releasing one-fifth of a combiner.

Today's the day, the Transformers Collectors' Club has revealed their second 2015 exclusive. As many fans have guessed, the exclusive is GI Joe-related, but not in the way one would expect. The second Club exclusive is... Marissa Faireborn with Afterburner! No mock-up images as of the writing of this post, but according to the Club, Afterburner is a redeco of the GI Joe Wheel Blaster Bike from the GI Joe line in 2012 done up in the colors of the original Generation One Autobot of the same name.


The Transformers Collectors' Club brings the Humans!


Fort Worth, TX - August 14th, 2014 - Fun Publications, Inc., licensee for Hasbro's official Transformers Collectors' Club, is excited to announce their first ever 3 ¾ inch human figure from the Transformers mythos… Marissa Faireborn!

Fans of the Transformers franchise will recognize Marissa as the Earth Defense

 Command (EDC) pilot from season 3 of the original Transformers cartoon. What G.I. Joe fans will recognize is the name, “Faireborn”. As Season 3 of the Transformers series took place a couple decades AFTER G.I. Joe, this crossover character was in fact, as intended by Story Editor Flint Dille who worked on both Transformers and G.I Joe, the daughter of G.I. Joe members Flint and Lady Jaye!

In addition to this great action figure offering, Marissa will also be riding in to action with her Autobot ally, Afterburner! Both will be revealed tomorrow on the Transformers Collectors' Club Facebook page. However, in the meantime we are thrilled to present the art for Marissa Faireborn w/ Afterburner by Robert Q. Atkins and Jesse Wittenrich.

This figure, along with the motorcycle accessory, will be available for order through the Transformers Collectors' Club early Spring 2015. For more information on the exclusive figure offerings of the TCC, including Lio Convoy, Nova Prime and the TFSS 3.0, please visit Transformersclub.com.

Cool, and in line with the Joe SDCC exclusives, but unless we get Afterburner out of the Chromia mold, I'm not interested. (And yes, I know they already listed a non-transforming prop vehicle fpr the gig... hence my lack of interest)

Yeaaaaaaaaaaah no, they probably should've waited a year or two so they could make afterburner from Gens Chromia. Sure afterburner would've been a chick, but so was animated Dragstrip, so I don't have a problem with it.

Another year ... another reason not to sign up.

More so given they seem to be forcing a crossover I've never wanted down our throats. I can see where this is leading, to get the full "set" you'll have to join the G.I. Joe club as well.

Smart move ... but nope.

So, basically it's like the SDCC G.I. Joe Crossover sets only on a smaller scale. Interesting, but the main draw to TF fans is Marissa and the deco of the bike. :-?

What will be the base figure for Marissa? Barones?

Don't think you will. It will be a set available to both groups.

Plenty of options for them to use. Baroness, Scarlett, Lady Jaye, and Bombstrike, as well as, Cover Girl and Quarrel have all been done recently. Edit: forgot Helix, and Jinx too. I'm pretty sure they can parts together a nifty EDC fig from those.

I was hoping for a transforming Afterburner. Are the Technobots on Hasbros radar? Probably not in the near future.

Pretty cool idea. Really sweet if you collect Joe's as well. If I was going to get one though I would want Marissa smaller and closer in scale to transformers. When I first saw the post and saw the picture I thought Afterburner was going to be a Chromia repaint. Now TFCC, send me my TFSS 2.0 figure number 4 already :BANG_HEAD:

Well, this couldn't be much more disappointing. A non-transforming G1 homage bike at club prices has basically zero appeal to me. And it's not like Afterburner was that major a character anyway, was it? I suspect this will be a slow seller. Then again, I could be wrong... I'm fairly shocked Animated Cheetor wound up sitting around long enough for me to get one.

When it comes to me and FunPub? No, there isn't.

The only decent thing they've done in recent years is Runabout and Runamuck. Nothing else has really interested me (except Scorponok, but I couldn't afford him anyway) and their business sense is rather lacking.

Because scale. Ther are no TFs big enough to scale with the current GIJoe line of figures, and in the case of the crossovers, the humans are most important.

The only truly fair way to do it would be to use the HUman Alliance figures, but then the humans come out too small to be cross-compatible for GI Joe.

And smeone could prove me wrong, but I think the bike figures, Arcee, Wreck Gar, etc. are all too big. Chromia might not because of the enclosed cockpit, but she's not available. Heck, even the Energon Highwire w/Kicker was a frikkin' huge bike.

An interesting idea, but considering that I'm not interested in non-transforming figures, I'll pass.

It looks like I'm only going to get the freebie figure this year.

I'd certainly be into a figure of Marrissa Fairborn if she's the same quality as the 30th anniversarry Joes.

This'd be pretty damn awesome. If I weren't busy saving up for an Army of Darkness chainsaw hand, I'd absolutely join TFCC for Marissa Fairborne alone. She'd look great next to Flint.

Somehow I just knew it was gonna be a Marissa Faireborn figure. The inclusion of the Afterburner bike is a nice touch, since I was only expecting the human figure alone.

So they'll take the lazy route. No big surprise there.
Lazy? We're getting this on top of a membership incentive figure, a Club store figure, six Subscription Service figures, and a seventh bonus Subscription Service figure. How in the world can anyone call them giving us TEN exclusives outside of BotCon "lazy"? This is their biggest number of offerings they've ever given us, and this particular figure is pretty much exactly what many were expecting to get out of it, plus the bike toy.

Neat idea for Joe fans I guess. I am horrifically indifferent to this. Neat that it exists for those that want it, but just not for me.
