Following last night's illustrated reveal of Thrustinator as the 6th figure in TFSS 2.0, we now have mock-ups of the actual figure. As speculated the figure is a retooled Beast Wars 2nd Dirgegun. Check out the images below courtesy of the official Transformers Collectors' Club.

Said it once and I'll say it again:

Please. Gimme. :x

So he's allignedwith the Predacon faction. Would've been neat if they combined the Predacon and Vehicon faction symbols.

A little bummed that the right insect eye is yellow, but I can get over it.

Money saved. Thanks Funpub. My wallet is already hurting from other purchases.

I'm not a huge fan of this particular mold, but I really love the colors. Makes me think "Toxitron", cause he looks pretty toxic.

Now where's the Chromedome pics, FunPub??? It's almost 9/15, and I've yet to see the entire gang!

Oh, and is the 7th figure going to remain a mystery till the very end??? :BANG_HEAD: I feel like that will inevitably just disappoint the majority of us, as we'll have higher expectations that will be impossible to fulfill.

Is 7th going to be a scout? That would narrow down the possibilities... but I'd be pretty disappointed if it was another Rewind tank. #-o (I really don't care to have matching pairs like that, and would prefer to see HEINRAD! :DANCE: )

I think it would have been cool if Thrustinator were to have sported this insignia:



After all, DoFP Razorclaw's future was post-BM (post-Universe War, even), just as this guy seems to be. ;)

More than likely the 7th figure won't be revealed until it comes out after all six of the main figures (unless something gets leaked).

Its size class is also a mystery, but it'll most likely be no larger than a Deluxe, no smaller than a Scout.

Waspinator has new body! But has to share with bikerbot. But that's ok. Because together, THRUSTINATOR has planzzz! And you all will see them real soon!

So would this mean he's a combination of Thrusts' and Waspinator's personalities? I can imagine him speaking with both voices spliced together :lol:

Bummed it wasn't other figures shown in the comic...Hauler, Clampdown, Redwing, etc. Maybe they'll show up on the shelf?

That said, for a wild card — and if you HAVE to throw a Beast Wars character into the set — I'm glad it's an obscure Japanese mold. That's cool. Since I have those four, I guess I'm destined to get this one as well... in spite of it looking a bit wild and awkward.

Looks better in bee mode. Picture it with the big laser folder onto the back instead. (that was possible, right?)

Thrustinator looks amazing and I absolutely cannot wait for to get my hands on him! I'm just a little surprised that he is the fifth toy reveal, I was kind of hoping it would be Redwing but do we really need another seeker mold, plus we really don't know anything about him.

That was the most unhelpful response ever, Sabr! :APPLAUSE: Wow! I feel like balloons and confetti should be dropping on your head for the achievement! :lol:

I guess I remember the details just fine: FunPub is not doing a Voyager this year (for the TFSS2.0), and they mentioned what they ship depends on overall weight (I believe), and hence why I thought they said somewhere that it would be 2 Scouts instead of one Voyager.

However, the 3 microns might be the extras for the decreased weight of not having a Voyager. :???:

Nonetheless, I can't help but think the 7th will be a Scout, guaranteed, and I'm just not down for a freebie like that - I think it will disappoint.

Actually.... I've got the answer: WEIGHT. I believe the microns ship with their deluxe pairing, so presumably, they do not add much weight (not enough to be considered the "extra" weight). A Voyager weighs more than a deluxe, though, and as it gets shipped on its own, we can assume that at least one shipment would be of "voyager weight". Ergo, the last shipment (with bonus figure) would most likely fit that description.

SOOOOOO... it comes down to what weighs as much as 1 Voyager? 2 Deluxes or 1 Deluxe & 1 Scout. If someone has a scale and wants to check this, that would be grand. Scouts and some deluxes are pretty close in size, so there could be size factors...

My guess is freebie scout, and most likely the second tape/tank pairing to Rewind. :-( Which would be lame. >:oP This is kind of making or breaking my decision to buy.

Are the robot feet supposed to stick out like that in alt mode, or is it mis-transformed in this pic?

I feel like this site would benefit from more smart-ass responses like yours. :lol:

The legs appear to be mistransformed in the mock-up image. Like all uses of this mold, they are supposed to be like this:

They're not quite sticking out, but rather are like the "knees" of the bug legs.

I haven't signed my son up for the TFCC yet but I was wondering does anyone know how much the TFSS2.0 costs on top of the normal subscription? Thanks.

Someone please correct me if I'm mistaken, but I believe it's close to $300.
