Yes, this would be a change from past practice.


Problem is if they ship them all at the end of the year there's nothing stopping people from using false payment information for the remaining installments. There's also no point in doing three shipments if they're all coming at the same time.

Emerje

I don't disagree that it's a potential problem. I'm also not convinced that they're legally able to make shipments later. They've sounded pretty definitive in this matter in the past,

No, I agree, that was my understanding as well, but then why not just charge us in November and December instead? It's not like they can't charge the remaining installments first like they do the pay-in-full folks. I don't know, there's nothing normal going on with this subscription round.

Emerje

The simple answer to "why not charge us in November...?" would seem to be their continued commitment to not charging us the second installment until after the first set is out. Does it make the most sense? Maybe not. Still....

That's some hefty pricetag on what they're offering. $129? I see maybe $90 or $100 worth, tops. Of course, I'd only be in it for the lower half of the product. The packaging itself is pretty nifty, though.

I still wish me had gotten an Omega Doom from Cybertron Menasor. :(

I really do see that high price as stemming from the fact that they packed so many things into the box. When I did the math on how much I would expect to pay for each item at retail*, the multiplier actually came out pretty low. Not as good as the subscription figures (which generate a good rate precisely by making you commit to all 6/7 figures at once), but lower than just about everything else that wasn't a membership incentive figure in the past several years.

*And I just considered Blackcat and Toaster as "extras".

due to delays at the manufacturer, these should arrive in time to ship around the end of the year. However, there has been a change in the process. These figures will be packed into only three shipments, 2 figures, 2 figures and the final 2 figures with the bonus figure.

This means that there will be an installment payment due in January and one in February. The billing dates will not be set until we know the shipment is on it's way here.


So I guess December, January, and February releases?

Emerje


darn...I think this just threw a kink in *my* & anyone's plan to collect only the figures which make up Wreckage.

They will probably pair up one Wreckage figure with a Pretender for the first two shipments.

The last Shipment will probably be Toxitron, Lifeline, & the 7th/bonus.

Of course I can always hope/pray that the first two shipments are divided as Prime/Megatron and Fractyl/Counterpunch. Then at the end I would only have one figure I didn't want, and could easily sell.
I enjoy asking questions, and always have. Please take no personal offense when I do. It's not about justification, is about acquiring knowledge.

Thanks to the Transformers Collector's Club Facebook, we have an update on the shipping status of the 5.0 figures. The figures are still meant to ship and the club will be fulfilling all the orders placed, even though their time as the official club has ended.

They were also kind enough to share new artwork of Double Pretender Optimus Prime!

You can check out the Facebook release below, along with the new artwork!

We will still be filling TFSS 5.0 orders, selling licensed Transformers Club/Convention product and offering customer service in 2017, however our time as the official Transformers Collectors' Club ends tonight at midnight EST. Thank you all for you support over the last 12 years. Even though we will still be here, let's close this chapter with your first look at the artwork for Double Pretender Optimus Prime! (Art by Dan Khanna and Josh Perez.)

heres an update from the Sub service webpage https://www.mastercollector.com/fss/vie ... ilID=29023. In case the link dosnt work i've copied the contents below

Merry Christmas!

Due to manufacturing delays, the container will not leave China until the middle of January. This means that your first shipment should depart here by the end of February. Because of the delays, we have combined the figures into three shipments. After the first shipment we will run the billing for the second installment. We will not schedule the two installment billings until we have the container in hand. I know you are all anxious to receive the final figures from the Transformers Collectors' Club.

Thanks for your patience.

Seibertronian Grimdragon2001 has given us a further update on the shipping of the Subscription Service 5.0 figures. The figures, as we know, have been pushed back, and it now appears they will be shipping at the end of February. The figures are also now being sent in 3 shipments. You can read the forwarded email text below.

The original projected shipping provided was the shortest/quickest timetable estimate offered by the factory.

In other words, the "nothing goes wrong/gets delayed" estimate. But since no one lives in a perfect world, that estimate was probably bound to get pushed back.

Perhaps the Club should have gone with a longer, "more realistic" time frame. But everyone was really hoping they'd be in by now.

This really isn't a big deal. It's not like they haven't had delays before and they've always pulled through. It was pretty optimistic to expect them to do both 4.0 and 5.0 in 2016. These are still getting out faster than usual.

1.0 - June 2013
2.0 - June 2014
3.0 - May 2015
4.0 - April 2016
5.0 - February 2017 (?)

We'll probably have all of them by April, I'm fine with this.

I don't mind a bit of extra time to get money together for the other two payments. I really want these, particularly the Wreckage components (Wreckage is my new favorite combiner), and I'd rather get them late than not at all.

I just hope the shipments are split so that the wreckage components are together, and the Pretenders are together, (I just want the Wreckage ones). But I fear they will make them mixed assortments, which will make them harder to get on eBay etc...

The reason they don't is so that people dont just pay fir installments, get the first or second installment, then dissappearand leave FunPub on the hook for figures the person did not want. Even with this abridged version, I would bet someone else's money that theyvpair up the less popular figures eith the ones people want. And Toxitron is probably gonna be last.

1)A pretender and a deluxe
1)the oter pretender and a limb
3)Toxitron, whomever is left, and the bonus figure

From what I can gather, this set has been sent out in batches, rather than in one fell swoop. I'm based in the U.K., and I think (for once) they sent the international packages out first!
