The Official Transformers Collectors' Club has tweeted an image of three of their upcoming subscription service figures, Scourge, Circuit, and Breakdown.

Check out the image below.

Update: TFCC has shared a robot mode image of the Breakdown sample via their facebook page. According to one of their responses to the image details regarding the subscription service should be revealed over the next couple of days.

ooh, Circuit is hideous! I love him! The other two are unsurprising, but appear to be well done, in those modes at least. I'm still grumpy that Hasbro couldn't give us Scourge though.

Right, :RENEGADE: makes him Car Robot Black Convoy, :CON: makes him RiD Scourge, gotcha.

Personally, I think they all look pretty good. Bring on Slipstream and Ultra Mammoth!

I want em all except that stupid mammoth. Ive been had G1 Breakdown (CHMS) so it's no big big deal to me. And Scourge wont really be Scourge until they release a black repaint of Battle Tanker. Either way Im all in. :CON:

I'm excited for most of these figs except for Slipstream and Jackpot. I'm sure there will be someone willing to take them off my hands.

I had a custom made using the classics seeker mold some time back which I'm quite happy with.

I'm liking Scourge and Circuit and am looking forward to Slipstream but I'm not interested in noncombining Stunticons I'm sorry to say. Ultra Mammoth is... undecided. I have the mold twice already and it was never really one of my favorites.

I was hoping we'd get this type of news soon, since the Joe subscription info is already out. I'm hoping Breakdown is the first release, but will not begrudge anyone if he's not.

ohhhh hell yeah, cant wait to get these. scourge, breakdown and slipstream. all others are a pass.

I really hate when they use 1 name for 2 distinct characters. scourge is galvatron's lackey not some random con semi.

Are these just items only available from TFCC or the free figure(s). If one of them isnt the free one, any idea when that will be announced?

It was announced way back at BotCon that the free figure for next year would be Depth Charge.

Depth Charge is really pretty nice. We could have used some of that pink on Skyquake.

I'm pretty excited for all the subscription figures, except Circuit. I really don't give two hoots about him.

The TFPrime Seeker design is just perfect for Slipstream.
Scourge will be nice, since I acquired Car Robots Black Convoy at Botcon 2012.
Depthcharge brings back my affection for Beast Wars.
Jackpot, because I love seeing Action Master only characters finally getting transformable figures.
Breakdown will go nicely with HTS Dragstrip...
Now if only they'd do Classics versions for the rest of the Stunticons.
And Ultra Mammoth is just plain FUN.

Hate to break it to you, but there are 4 Scourges: space bathtub ship Scourge, black Optimus repaint Scourge, Transmetal locust Scourge, and 3-headed dragon Scourge.
Personally I think the name "Scourge" fits them all, but whatevers...


I'm kinda disappointed Scourge isn't a retail repaint, but I think that's mostly because he's the 3rd convention/club exclusive use of the mold within a year. That, and the original, being an RtS figure, really didn't get that much saturation in stores around here.
Re: TFCC Subscription Service Scourge, Circuit, and Breakdown Sample Image (1410040)

OMG Scourge. I wonder how pricey these things will be. If I can't afford to joing up/pay for shipping I have a friend who's offered to pick one up for me if he's able to order more than one.

Don't forget the wise, knowledgable and respected heroic Decepticon Scourge. ;)

I'm looking forward to the majority of these figures, but restraining myself from getting too amped until we find out more details about the entire subscription service.

Most importantly - price.

Heh, at this point Scourge could replace his Sweeps with more Scourges.

Ehh, if I'm going to pay for an overpriced Breakdown, I'm going with the one that isn't a repaint and can actually combine. Sorry TFCC, Fansproject all the way.
Re: TFCC Subscription Service Scourge, Circuit, and Breakdown Sample Image (1410096)
Posted by gavinfuzzy on August 15th, 2012 @ 7:21am CDT
Meh, Still no interest for Circuit. Will sell him off if I get the sub (if it's reasonable).

I really want Scourge, Breakdown, Slipstream. Jackpot will stand in as a Kickoff for Animated, and I'm undecided on Ultra Mammoth. I might just trade him off for a Big Convoy + some extra cash. :lol: Circuit's gonna be sold to recover some of the damage.

Nah, he's the membership figure. Pretty happy to get another figure to add to that set of figures.

Circuit and Scourge will be joining the collection. Breakdown is too little too late. FPC gets my money for Classics Stunticons. He's a good choice, a smart one too. Just poor timing on the part of the club. Drag strip is on his way out once those drop too. Animated Jackpot does nothing for me either. The rest I'm certainly planning on getting. Ultra Mammoth is just too cool.

I'm guessing the price is going to be less than a Botcon boxed set, so I'm at least prepared to pay at least $300. The only figs I don't like are Circuit and Jackpot.

Ultra Mammoth is awesome because next to a Lio Convoy, their proportions will look good. I know Lio Convoy should be next to a Big Convoy and there has been no "Ultra Magnus" type character, but I'm still kind of confused about multiple convoys (especially two beast convoys) existing side by side like they did in the Beast Wars IDW comics. So until I get over that, having this figure next to Lio Convoy is going to be awesome.... btw I'm using Robot Masters Lio Convoy, otherwise the proportions are upsetting..

You do know you have to buy ALL of them, right? You can't pick and choose.

According to one of their responses to the image details regarding the subscription service should be revealed over the next couple of days.


>:oP :lol:

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I don't expect to hear anything in the next couple of days. Maybe by the end of the year, if we're lucky.

They were only visible when he used his human bio signature obtained from Kelly to control Fortress Maximus. That may be the reason the Korean version's shoulders were blank.

Posted by gothsaurus on August 15th, 2012 @ 9:29am CDT
Nice thought. It hadn't occurred to me to display Mammoth beside smaller Lio Convoy. That should do nicely.

Kinda like the last SG Botcon set, I think viewed as stand alone characters.... many of these exclusives don't appear jaw-dropping-awesome... but that you have to put them in context with their sets. (ie. like merging the two SG sets)

As a group, I think these would all look odd (as I'm sure they will when they appear photographed together at the end of the year). But you put Depth Charge with the Botcon Beast Wars set, Scourge with Skybyte and Side Burn, Jackpot with Botcon Stunticon set, Breakdown with classics, Slipstream with...

All of a sudden all these will snap into shape quickly.

They were still there, nontheless. Ruination wore a great big one on his chestplate in several shots.

The only time there was ever a :CON: in the show was during the Saban-made insignia scene transitions.

I can't wait for these figures. I think this subscription service has been the one thing that I've been looking forward to the most this year. I just hope Fun Pub can get all of its ducks in a row so that I can just sit back, relax, give them money, and enjoy these products hassle-free.

Yeah, it's really a shame that shipping is so high these days. I'd have LOVED the notion of getting a random one in the mail every couple of months.

Actually, with them revealing three in one pop. I'm wondering if the service is now mailing out three in a batch to save on shipping and cut costs? Hmmmm.

All will be revealed. >:oP

Joe subscription was about $300...

I doubted they could do it for less but I was still hopeful.

How do the Joe exclusives stack up? How many figures, how many shipments per year, how big were the figures and/or vehicles?

Questions questions questions.

Questions questions questions.

1) I don't think they stack up well at all. There's no center balance point where you can put one on top of another. Maybe with glue...
2) There are 12 figures, one per month, plus the 13th membership figure.
3) The figures are standard GI Joe figure size, 3.75 inches I think.

Now before you get into comparative questions (6 TFs vs 12 Joes) please remember that 1 TF probably has as many parts as two of the GI Joe figures. Also each TF is much bigger in height, width and mass than the GI Joe figures.
Re: TFCC Subscription Service Scourge, Circuit, and Breakdown Sample Image (1410381)
Posted by gothsaurus on August 16th, 2012 @ 9:12am CDT
Thanks! Yeah, that's a quite different comparison.... was mostly curious how often they shipped them out. Interesting.

Yeah, having taken the custom class. Transformers have about twice as many parts as you think they do just looking at them. Quite a mess reassembling them. Had a few people on the verge of tears last year.
