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.

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?)

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.

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!

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!

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.

This time, the reason the head is that small is because of those side horns Rampage's head has. The head had to be small enough to fit inside the hole that Prime Megatron's head fits into in the vehicle mode. Since Megatron's head had no side horns, it could fit in whille still being a full sized Deluxe head. But since Rampage's head has those horns sticking out from both sides, the main head that the horns stick out of had to be reduced in order to let the whole thing fit into that hole.

I personally would not have minded if they had just done away with the head's side horns altogether if it meant letting the head itself stay its normal size. After all, the original Protoform X lacked those horns prior to his becoming BW Rampage. However, since many see those side horns as an iconic aspect of Rampage's head, many others disagree with this idea and want the horns included as they are here. Thus, we get a complete head that's scale down to fit all of it into the hole.

That's a great explanation Sabrblade, it really is. To bad it really doesn't justify the head shrinkage; I'm sure funpub with their clever design team could figure something out that would strike a happy medium.

Shortly following the release of images of the Transformers Collector's Club Transmutate figure, we received a notice that the figure is on sale now at The Club's Store for a price of $59.00

Click here to purchase one for yourself! It also comes with a box which can hold both Transmutate and their Beast Wars Protoform X/Rampage homage.

I think they could have fixed it by molding them backswept along the sides of the head. It would allow the head to be bigger, if not perfectly megs head size, and pretty close to the illustrations in the comic.

Pete Sinclair has chimed in elsewhere to reassure us that the head does look acceptable:

As it is, the horns really mess with the perspective, and while it is not the most in scale head we have done, it definitely looks fine on my shelf. Does that make sense?

Let me put it this way. I never even opened my P/CP. Rampage sits on my shelf with all the other exclusives in robot mode. So, there ya go...

Seriously, that' Transmutate is ugly. I'm sorry, but it is. I really don't care how exclusive it is, not gonna pay club subscription to pay another 59.00 bucks for that thing. Color is bland, figure is extremely small. For that price (+club sub), gonna get me a masterpiece whatever.

Have you seen the Prime First Edition Arcee figure? She's roughly tall for a Deluxe. Taller than all other FE Deluxes minus Starscream (and maybe Vehicon, haven't sized her up to that one yet).

That's why I forego most Prime deluxe figures. Just preference. But they are pretty small, nonetheless. I just think a figure at that price should stand out a little more with the coloring. I guess a few stickers should do the trick.

No smaller than the average Generations Deluxe figure (since that is the line that the FE molds were originally designed for).

President-prime wrote:I just think a figure at that price should stand out a little more with the coloring. I guess a few stickers should do the trick.
To be fair, the original Transmutate design wasn't exactly awash with color beyond teal and silvery beige.

This one pretty much gets that deco down to a tee, and even adds more color to it with its translucent red plastic.

I agree. But if you look at the FE Arcee figure,the details are accentuated. The smaller lines and the details are very clear. The color on the Transmutate seems to blend together covering much of the details. It's probably just me. :)

If I understand what President-prime is saying, he's just stating that the figure is small for the $60 price tag. Exclusives aside, I agree. This figure and it's price aren't for everyone out there. Sabreblade, did you purchase the figure yet?

Okay, that I can agree with. $60 for a Deluxe is too much in a general sense, but it's fairly standard practice for a TCC figure so I'm used to it.

But it sounded like to me he was only against this figure because of it being a Prime mold and because of its fairly simplistic deco (which was what the original Transmutate design had, so this figure evoking that can't be faulted for that).

Yeah, I placed an order for it (my wallet's still screaming in pain since I had to make a few other payments alongside it).

I agree they should have gone with the backswept horns design choice. The actual horns actually look a whole lot more pronounced on the in-hand figure than on the mocked up one, so I'm not sure why they did what they did.

Either way, I think he'll be a really neat addition.

He was a Maximal experiment, that's it. His bio card says "Cybertron Protoform X" with his unique faction symbol.

And by the by guys, the first two Subscription figures are on their way:

Transformers Collectors' Club wrote:The container was off loaded yesterday. We are preparing to make the first shipment to you next week and then, due to the BotCon schedule, the second shipment will occur before BotCon. So, your first two figures will come relatively close together.

For those of you on the installment pay plan, we will be billing you the 2nd installment on July 2nd and the final installment on August 26th. Please make a note of those dates so that you can ensure there is enough money/credit in your account. Remember, we will attempt the billing 3X and after the third attempt, the remainder of your subscription will be cancelled and there is no way to reinstate it. Each time we rebill the admin fee is additive.

Your bonus figure will ship with the final shipment in October and only those who complete the full subscription will receive the free bonus figure.

In addition, we would like for all of you to log-in and check/correct your address and while you are there, check your cc information to make sure that it is still valid. Address changes must be made in the system by midnight Monday, May 26th, so that we can prepare the shipping documents that Tuesday morning. Click here to log-in to check your information. Do not log into the club store and make any address changes for this system. The two software systems are independent for shipping addresses. All FSS address changes must be made in the FSS system. All store order address changes must be made in the store system.

Please note that this went to every invoice in the FSS 2.0 system, even if your order did not go through or you cancelled it. We don't have a way to separate the different emails so this was sent to everyone. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Thanks for your support and patience!

Take notice of Optimus Primal's line of, "It was originally an attempt to replicate Starscream's mutant indestructible spark with a Maximal."


Though this toy represents a different universe version of him, the experiment that birthed him was seemingly kept the same.

Huh, so it's alright that he's labeled a Maximal.

He's still going to be a Predacon to me, though. It helps that he lacks a Macimal faction symbol, too. Though now I need to invest on getting Predacon faction symbol stickers.

Punch used the reversible nature of the Sideswipe/Sunstreaker mold. His head was doubesided with a rocking helmet that covered the unused head. Unfortuntely, for everything to clear the vehicle mode, it was narrow and short... IE, tiny. Biggest r than the scout class, but substanitilly smaller than normal.

What's cool is that he got his own unique X insignia on his bio card:

though, he got an even cooler one in his bio in one of this year's magazines, issue #55. Shame they didn't put that one on his card.



Though, speaking of magazines and Rampage, here's some nightmare fuel for ya, kids. :D :twisted: :lol:

What's cool is that he got his own unique X insignia on his bio card


I know, dude... I know. :roll:

We all know that the Transformers Collectors' Club Subscription Service exclusive figure Rampage is shipping and arriving this week for some lucky members of the Club, but in the meanwhile, the BotCon Twitter account have tried laying some rumours to rest by showing a close close-up of Protoform X's head and neck - two in fact, check them out below!

Transformers Collectors' Club wrote:The container was off loaded yesterday. We are preparing to make the first shipment to you next week and then, due to the BotCon schedule, the second shipment will occur before BotCon. So, your first two figures will come relatively close together.

For those of you on the installment pay plan, we will be billing you the 2nd installment on July 2nd and the final installment on August 26th. Please make a note of those dates so that you can ensure there is enough money/credit in your account. Remember, we will attempt the billing 3X and after the third attempt, the remainder of your subscription will be cancelled and there is no way to reinstate it. Each time we rebill the admin fee is additive.

Your bonus figure will ship with the final shipment in October and only those who complete the full subscription will receive the free bonus figure.

In addition, we would like for all of you to log-in and check/correct your address and while you are there, check your cc information to make sure that it is still valid. Address changes must be made in the system by midnight Monday, May 26th, so that we can prepare the shipping documents that Tuesday morning. Click here to log-in to check your information. Do not log into the club store and make any address changes for this system. The two software systems are independent for shipping addresses. All FSS address changes must be made in the FSS system. All store order address changes must be made in the store system.

Please note that this went to every invoice in the FSS 2.0 system, even if your order did not go through or you cancelled it. We don't have a way to separate the different emails so this was sent to everyone. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Thanks for your support and patience!

So it doesn't look too pin-headed. Really looking forward to coming home and seeing this in the mail! :grin:

He's going to look pretty good squaring off against Depth Charge

i wish hasbro would think of some of these repaints/remolds themselves.
