After a disappointing lack of news regarding TFSS 2.0 at BotCon 2013 the official Transformers Collectors' Club has taken to their twitter account to announce the first three figures in next year's line-up:

The TCC wrote:
  • Treadshot using the Generation Warpath mold
  • Chromedome from TF: Prime Wheeljack
  • Fisitron from Generation Roadbuster


Update: TFCC has updated their website with Treadshot's full reveal and new details on TFSS 2.0. The molds will be coming from the Transformers Prime, Generations, and Henkei lines: 5 Deluxes, 1 Scout, plus a bonus 7th figure to be shipped out with the 6th figure. A total of 7 figures with three new head sculpts.

Re: Transformers collectors club previews


After the great success of the Transformers Figure Subscription Service (TFSS) 1.0, the Transformers Collectors' Club now brings you version 2.0! The TFSS is only available to active club members. This service is an optional feature and is not included in the cost of your annual Transformers Collectors’ Club (TCC) membership.

The TFSS 2.0 will consist of six different Transformers toys. You will receive six shipments starting in approximately February 2014, and then each month after that for a total of six months. Figures will be shipped in a surprise sequence (figure shipments will be the same for everyone each month) and it will also be a surprise each month as to which figure you receive! Your last shipment (6th shipment) will include a FREE mystery figure! That’s right, if you sign up for the TFSS 2.0 you will get a BONUS 7th figure! This 7th figure will never be sold in the club store. The only way to guarantee getting it is to sign up for the TFSS 2.0.

The limited edition TFSS 2.0 contains a variety of fan favorite characters from the Transformers mythos, all tied together by a great story to be told thru Transformers: Timelines. The assortment includes some very popular Generations, Henkei and Transformers: Prime molds. For 2.0 we will be offering 5 Deluxes and 1 Scout with THREE new head sculpts. You will definitely want these toys as part of your Transformers Collection. Stay tuned for more updates as the order period is scheduled to begin in mid-September of 2013.

In other words, nothing new. It's worth noting Chromedome is getting one of the presumably two new heads, and "Ironfist" is out of Hasbro's reach it seems, so they're using the anagram "Fisitron" again.

And I derped in not realising that Treadshot is a straight redeco, not a retool. #-o

Yeah, this was all mostly in the BotCon info.

Generations Roadbuster? The FoC combiner (Ruination's foot)? That's a pretty lame choice.

One that could possibly lead to a Ruination repaint? All we need is candidate redecos for the rest of the Wreckers.

I don't think TFCC is going to repaint all five figures, do you? How would that work? One of the five is part of the SS and you have to buy the other four separately as store exclusives? I just don't see that happening. And don't we already have enough repaints of these figures? I believe there are already five different paint jobs for those figures.

Old news is old. >:oP

I actually don't mind Roadbuster being redecoed into Ironfist/Fisitron. I want to repurpose the Wreckers as their Generation One incarnations, and with the Voyager Whirl coming down the pipe soon, I was going to skip on the Fall of Cybertron Deluxe. With Ironfist/Fisitron coming, I can skip on Deluxe Whirl and still have a full Ruination. It's a win-win for me! :DANCE:

Depending on how these look, I may have to get a subscription next year. Hopefully they will be doing more IDW figures too.

I'm hoping Renderform will knock out a new head with a clear visor. Looks good, though. It's a great mold and a nice color scheme. Can't complain about more Action Masters getting real transforming versions.

In addition to the Treadshot reveal they've also announced a bonus 7th figure.

So, Chromedome from TFP Wheeljack. Hasn't someone on here done that already? If so, just goes to show that FunPub and Hasbro are running out of ideas.

I like how they're gonna be doing Chromedome, but I just don't feel that the Wheeljack mold is all too fitting. Blurrz did an awesome job on his, but to me the mold is too short and stocky to represent someone who's suppose to be pretty spindly. I guess this means we'll never see a MTMTE styled Chromedome then if TFCC is handling this.

Treadshot is cool, but I'm more curious to see how Ironfist will look.

I disagree. I think if MANY people are thinking of an idea and doing a repaint/retool... it's time for the club and Hasbro to think about doing an official one.

Just because one guy does a repaint doesn't mean Hasbro or the club has to go all "hands off." I'd rather have an official toy than some paint-caked mess I tried to do.

That would be Blurrz. He's also done Hot Rod from the Prime Vehicons, and IDW Fortress Maximus from Armada Megatron.

I wouldn't say that they're running out of ideas. Rather, they're listening to fans who want popular characters made into toys. Chromedome hasn't recieved a single toy since his first back in his debut in the fourth season of Generation One and Headmasters. It's about time they did one, though I wish he was available to the general public.

I'm not sure what your response means. My questions were (A) Don't we have enough repaints of these molds already? and (B) How would a set of five figures work into TFCC's plans? Either all five figures would have to be part of the TFSS or the TFSS subscribers would have to buy the additional four figures as regular TFCC store exclusives. I don't see either happening, and saying "Nexus Prime" doesn't really address either of those questions.

Since an earlier post asked about which Action Masters got updated as transforming figures, here's the list:

  • Axer: RiD, repaint of G2 Road Pig, and homaged with HftD Axor, retool of RotF Lockdown[/*:m]
  • Jackpot: TFCC Subscription, retool of Animated Jazz[/*:m]
  • Kick-Off: BotCon 2012 as Kick-Out/Kick-Over, retool of RtS Special Ops Jazz[/*:m]
  • Banzai-Tron: BotCon 2007, repaint of Energon Mirage, as homaged with HftD Banzaitron, repaint of RotF Bludegon[/*:m]
  • Treadshot: This guy :lol:[/*:m]
  • Circuit: TFCC Subscription, repaint of HftD Axor (like the original is a repaint of Axer)[/*:m]
  • Thundercracker: BotCon 2011 Souvenir[/*:m]
  • Slicer: BotCon 2010, repaint of Energon Downshift[/*:m]
  • Double Punch: BotCon 2010, repaint of Energon Scorponok[/*:m][/list:u]

    Let's not forget the homages:

    • Rad: homaged with Cybertron Smokescreen[/*:m]
    • Gutchruncher: homaged with RotF Sparkcrusher, repaint of Universe Warpath[/*:m][/list:u]

      And a 7th figure? Transmutate should not count, FunPub!

Sorry about the vagueness. My iPod had almost died when I posted it.

I was aiming my response toward possible redeco of the other Wreckers/Combaticons as future TFSS figures, or maybe even subscription freebies.

It doesn't, Transmutate is a 2014 TFCC exclusive outside of TFSS. According to their update the only way to get the 7th figure is to be part of the TFSS, won't be available anywhere else.
