You realise he's just linking to Baltmatrix' reviews, right? And he's a user of Seibertron.com to boot.

No news yet, tho we do have the details for Subscription Service 3.0:

- G2 Starscream (Classics mold)
- Nacelle (from the Exodus novel. Classics mold with Thrust's wings and regular Seeker head. Deco based on G1 Thrust prototype)
- Zap wit G.B. Blackrock (Gen. Deluxe Bumblebee with deco based on the unreleased Japanese Carzap. Blackrock is a regular Kreon, possibly referencing the Block Town line Carzap was to be part of)
- Krok with Gatoraider (Gen. Deluxe Megatron with a Dai Arms Micron)
- Serpent O.R. (Gen. Scourge with the alternate Ratbat head)
- Tarantulas (RtS Wreck-Gar with Scrap Iron head includes Ida Arms Microns)

Gotta say... I'm really pleased with the wave 3 of TFSS. There are some really solid concepts based on rare and obscure toys. I love that. Others are really clever uses... those remaining characters can add to previous years Botcon sets like G2 and Beast Wars. A very cool offering for the true fans.

The official Transformers Collectors' Club have just announced the 2015 membership freebie figure, and they're clearly sticking to the Beast Wars theme with... Lio Convoy! The artwork shown reveals a redeco of the Generations Orion Pax mold, with an entirely new head sculpt too. As with this year's Transmutate Rampage combo, it is highly likely that there will be a figure for sale separately that goes with one - could there be a Megatron dragon kicking about in the future? In the meantime, check the images out, mirrored below!

Lio Convoy will feature an ALL-NEW head sculpt! The alt mode is fantastic![/quote]







UPDATE

Looks as though the Club isn't done with new reveals! According to their Twitter, not one, but TWO reveals are on the way! The first of two is scheduled to be revealed for next Thursday, 7 August, while the second, which the Club claims will "send shockwaves across fandoms", is scheduled for the Thursday after, 14 August.

[quote]Also! Stay tuned for not one, but TWO club exclusives! First reveal next Thursday.[/quote]

Calling it now - the other figure available for sale will be a BWII Galvatron homage using one of the Predacon molds, probably Predaking or Grimwing.

Also, would have rather had the Dog Rod that they tweeted out first. Would have gone GREAT with Ultra Mammoth.

yeah, that flame chest works surprisingly well! ha. I bet a few of us will do a custom of that before the year's up. While I'm less of a Beast Wars kinda guy, it will go great with the Botcon set.

And we still have a couple surprises coming this way... the TFSS freebie and likely a for-purchase store exclusive to pair with this one. A BW Galvatron would be a great pairing.

I'd also love a third jet for the subscription service... SG Dirge would be a third seeker mold for the set, and a nod to the Shattered Glass collectors... or I'd like to see a Redwing as second choice.

But I digress.

What an odd choice.

odd, but beautiful. only concern: possibly another sacrifice of head size for clearance?

I'm more concerned about the figure's size - that Orion Pax mold is far from large...

It's interesting, but not thrilling.

Who want's to bet we'll see a Predacon mold repainted into Galvatron II?

I actually would not. None of them match his overall profile, plus I think the Voyagers would be too big for the club to consider at this time.
And who says he'll paired with another release? That only happened twice in non-consecutive years. Didn't the club say they'd make one of the Beast Wars: Uprising characters if one got popular enough?

Pretty, but no.

Some of the GO dragons are smaller, aren't they?

Still thinking Budora looks like the best match, and he is a bit bigger, sadly.

Beast Wars "Uprising" ??? Gotta find out what this is....

I'd much rather see more modern/pre-beast takes of the original Beast Wars crew. I know the ones we've gotten are technically Uprising versions of the characters, but I at least have a connection to them...

OH! Just revisited those. Botanica at the absolute top... with new head, of course. Other favorites are Dynobot (shockingly good for a simple repaint) and Jawbreaker. He's just pretty in those colors. The others I could live without.

It's the home universe of this year's Rampage and Trans-Mutate, and last year's Depth Charge. Several designs were re-used for the characters like:

- Rattrap: Prime Rumble, based his BM form
- Botanica: BH Soundwave, with Laserbeak instead of Ravage (no jokes please)
- Geckobot: BH Wheeljack with Dead End head
- Torca: BotCon 2010 Clench
- Jawbreaker: BH Ratchet
- Dynobot: Gen. Springer

And the GO! Oni were the same size as our Predacons just with new heads

Aw, that's cute. The decoed the entire truck into a lion's head. Complete with nose and mane. Kind of reminds me of the dog van from "Dumb and Dumber". :lol:
