Didn't realize there was another "manufacturer's delay". Always thought these were made and shipped with the botcon figures to save them some money.

Isn't that almost the EXACT SAME THING they said last year? Down to the "on a boat, headed this way"?

Last year it was the intention of having the Subscription and BotCon figures ship on different dates, one after the other. A tiny miscommunication occurred which cause the manufacturer to think they were to be shipped at the same time.
Either the same thing happened this year, or they thought "Last year worked out fine, why not repeat it for this year"?

or they never had any intention of shipping them separately in the first place.

Why is Ravage in that image? Is he part of the set?

That's Catgut, a repaint of Arms Micron Jida. He goes with Treadshot in this set. In the same vein, Stylor in the middle is a repaint of S.2 and goes to Chromedome. Finally, Frenzy on the left is a repaint of Sou, and goes to Barricade (Movie reference, see?)

Hey! I posted this news a full 50 minutes earlier than this news post and used the "Submit News" function to report it immediately after posting it. Did it not go through?

Turns out we haven't been receiving your emails from your Yahoo account. You can blame that on some very strict DMARC rules that Yahoo and AOL started implementing in the past month that apparently has been causing all sorts of problems similar to this with emails. You can read more about the problem at http://www.zdnet.com/aol-yahoo-email-pr ... 000028783/

Thanks to you and Lost Cybertronian for bringing this to my attention, I modified the contact form on Seibertron.com, in lieu of the changes that AOL and Yahoo rolled out to hopefully ensure that your messages are getting to us properly.

Feel free to send us a test message via the news contact form, Sabrblade, to see if we receive your message.

So would it be too late to post this rather catchy "Technical Difficulties" video?

Just wanted to clarify one other point ... mooncake sent the email from the Club before Sabrblade sent his by about 5 minutes. Technically, no one should get credit for this since Brian from the Club sent out the email to all members which El Duque, myself, and the rest of the staff that are Club members all received. But we don't want to discourage either so credit was given to Mooncake.

Thank you for looking into this, Ryan. I was starting to wonder if either there was a technical issue behind this, or if some person(s) was/were seeing the same news as me and just lightning fast on the news reporting. :P

I've sent a test message to see if it works. If it still doesn't, there's another email address I could switch to using instead.

And don't worry about news credit. I just was curious about the thread I had made seemingly going unnoticed. Brian Savage is original source, so all credit goes to him. :)

The official Transformers Collectors' Club Facebook page have uploaded a new set of photos, showing off the exclusive figure Transmutate, the Beast Wars themed redeco of Transformers: Prime First Edition Arcee, and its packaging, which contains space to display/store the free TFCC Rampage figure! And on that note, the Club have also updated their website to say that TFSS 2.0 was just loaded off the vessel, and the first shipment should be arriving next week, and that to make sure they all arrive safely members should triple-check their mailing address. Check the mirrored images out below!

[quote]Here's a look at the TRANSFORMERS CLUB EXCLUSIVE Transmutate figure! The figure comes in a special display box with a place for the tech spec card. In addition, there is a hidden alcove in the foam made to hold the FREE TCC membership figure RAMPAGE! You can combine TRANSMUTE with your free RAMPAGE (to be mailed in the near future) and make a two figure boxed set which lines up with the current Club magazine comic![/quote]

I just noticed that as well. What the heck happened to his head? That's not the same head and neck as this image ...



I haven't been paying that close of attention because I was pretty satisfied with how it looked last year. I can't believe it's going to turn into another example of shrunken head syndrome. Urgh!

Looking forward to Rampage (shrunken head and all), but think I'll wait to see if Transmutate goes on clearance

If you also Notice, the Neck is allot longer and thinner for the smaller head. Though that can be the angles of the photos

yeah, getting a bit worried about that shrunken head. Transmutate looks great, though I was hoping the blue would be closer to the mockup.

I'm not making any judgments about the size of Rampage's head until I have the figure in-hand. Hope it turns out okay, though, since he'll go nicely with last year's Depth Charge.

Trans-Mutate works surprisingly well, but I don't think I can spare money for her right at the moment. Wish I sould, though.
