Our friends over at the official Transformers Collectors' Club have been busy lately! It was just a week ago that the first TFSS 2.0 figure, Barricade with Frenzy, started arriving in member's mailboxes, that was followed by this year's membership incentive figure Maximal Rampage, now we have reports that the second TFSS 2.0 figure, Fisitron, is arriving. Fisitron is repaint of the Transformers Generations FOC Deluxe Roadbuster mold. Check out the images courtesy of Twitter user John DeLuna mirrored below:

Guess it was really no surprise thanks to the Club's Tweeting pics of his box before.

This is the only figure I'm not really excited for so I'm kinda glad they didn't save it for last.

:MAXIMAL:

So are they ditching the whole "ship a single figure once a month" deal, or is this just a fluke within the system? :???:

EDIT: Never mind, figured it out. Turns out there was a delay in the initial shipping and the coinciding of BotCon, so they decided to ship Ironfist out early to make up for that.

i skipped Whirl and Roadbuster initially on account of their Voyager and (then) Universe figures, so this is 3 of 4 before Ruination has his limbs.

There was another delay this year (thankfully not as late as last year's delay). As this is still a relatively new service, hopefully they'll get the kinks worked out eventually.

Yeah, I figured it out. Please see the above edit. ;) Thanks, anyway!

While it's nice... I'm putting my money towards Gauntlet. New mold, looks more like the character, and better price (which is saying something for 3rd party).

There was no delay, nor was there one last year. TFCC gets all their figures for the year in one big shipment, that coincides with BotCon for obvious reasons. You think it was a coincidence that they stared shipping Transmutate, Rampage, and TFSS 2.0 figures all at the same time? Nope. I would imagine shipping rates force them to get one big shipment. The so called delays are just bull shit cover stories. I don't know why they don't just own up to it.

Hydra is the one who wrote Fisitron's bio, and he filled it with some fun little references to other TF fiction.

IDW G1 references:

  • His real name is "Ironfist" while "Fisitron" is his infosphere alias.[/*:m]
  • He was recruited to join the Wreckers[/*:m]
  • Ultra Magnus is a lawman[/*:m]
  • Ultra Magnus has a connection to the Wreckers (also a reference to Marvel G1 and, well, this is Aligned Ultra Magnus here anyway)[/*:m][/list:u]
    Wings Universe G1 references:

    • He started out as a factory worker.[/*:m][/list:u]
      Energon references:

      • The Combination Spark (Japanese name of the Spark of Combination)[/*:m][/list:u]

        There's probably more in there to be found, as well.

So he should be part of the WFC/FOC game family, right? If anything FoC because the combination thing was discovered and done first in the second game... :-?

Yeah, he and Barricade and Frenzy hail from the same universe, according to TransTech Rhinox and Heinrad.

He's right: he's a straight repaint of FoC Roadbuster, a retool of FoC Swindle:



Only Chromedome, Rewind and Thrustinator got new heads.
