The official Transformers facebook page has posted a teaser look at the back story for TFSS 2.0's Chromedome, Rewind, and Threadshot (aka the Intelligence and Notable Surreptitous Information Recovery Team) in the form of an old school Transformers Tech Spec. The text is very small but somewhat decipherable. Check it out below, and don't forget the ordering deadline for TFSS 2.0 is tonight at midnight. Click here to order.

It's the same mold as one of the main six.

The latest magazine cover, which was news'd here, kinda very clearly implies that it's gonna be the same mold as Rewind, making many think that it might be Eject.

But, with this being the TCC, Eject might be too obvious, and so it could very possibly be Solarbot instead. ;)


But, no way would it be the red Seeker, Red Wing. He was conceived far too late in the game to be made into a toy for 2014's subscription service, as all of these toys were already picked out by this year's BotCon, and Red Wing wasn't given an identity until after BotCon.

I did read it, and saw that it said "5 of the TFSS 2.0 characters", but that still doesn't explain why they only have five shown instead of all six.

"Intelligence and notable surreptitious information". I like that. Has a nice ring to it.

"Intelligence and Notable Surreptitious Information Recovery Team"

"INSIRT"?

It's a great bio and a cool team. I like em. Plus i like the group shot of them in the Tec spec. It gives me a chuckle. Original.

Hey Funpub, here's an idea for you that will be easy to pull off. Do more Seekers but rather than beating the Classics mold to death, try something new:

I've often pondered doing this myself. I already repainted the original Waspinator mold (using Buzzsaw) red to make a new character I call "Red Wasp" but with the "jet" mode the Transmetal mold sports, doing some weird Beast universe Seekers should be very simple.

Going with 3 characters that 3rd parties have either made or are going to make this year was a dumb idea. I guess the "Hasbro only" crowd can rejoice. I wonder if the 7th bonus figure will be Eject ? If it turns out to be the red seeker, Ill just get it on e-bay and pay more but still save. Hopefully some factory worker spills the beans early. ;)

Yep, same as me except I skipped Treadshot (never was a fan of that deco and I know nothing of the character except that he was an Action Master).

I went for it this year since there were four things in it that I wanted: Thrustinator and the Arms Microns. The rest is all a bonus.

And if the 7th figure turns out to be Solarbot, then this TFSS 2.0 will have been far more worth it. 8)

Decided to sign up again. The only figure I don't like is fisitron so I figured i would go for this one. I only really signed up for ultra mammoth on the first one.

:MAXIMAL:

How much was TFSS 2.0? I was kinda interested but didn't know how much it would set me back.

The deadline has passed already.

They're shooting themselves in the foot by allowing such a short window of opportunity to sign up.

Agreed 100%. Making the decision to spend that much money isn't taken lightly by most.

Well, last year we had from August 17, 2012 to midnight on September 10, 2013 to sign up for the TFSS 1.0, which was a window of 25 days.

This year, we had from September 26, 2013 to midnight on October 17, 2013 for the TFSS 2.0, which was a window of 22 days, only three days less than last year.

Yes, and even 30 days would be too short. Especially since it takes them so long to reveal all of the figures.

They should give us like 3 months AFTER the final reveal to decide whether or not we wish to sign up.

They need to to have time to get all the orders in and get the toys ready, though. The years are simply too short to stretch these things out so long.

Maybe, but I still think less than a month is cutting it way too close when you're talking about hundreds of dollars for what have been up to this point very mixed sets of figures. I think it's hard for any fan to say they are 100% in or out on either of the sets they've done so deciding whether or not it's worth it to pull the trigger takes time.
