Apparently, there was a mis-communication with the factory and now there will be 2 figures for the customizing class.
Figure #1: Cybertron Scrapmetal--converted into Pre-Beast Wars Inferno (Homage, not actual character).
Figure #2: Galaxy Force Coby Ramble--converted into G1 Rumble (Homage, not actual character).
There are no plans to incorporate the character into the story, however, they are part of the Universe line.
Here is the original quote, along with the link for those that have access to the club forum:
Well folks, all of the T's are crossed and the I's are dotted, and it's now time to announce which mold we're using for the Customizing class. The mold we got is SCRAPMETAL. Now for the BIG news. Due to a miscommunication from the factory, each bag contains two complete toys. In addition to this, there are extra parts. Specifically, the sprues contain two different head sculpts. One is Scrapmetal, and the other is COBY'S RAMBLE from the Japanese Sonic Convoy giftset. I know on no plans to release Coby's Ramble in the U.S., so at this point, this may be the only U.S. release of that mold!
Now, onto the characters. The original plan was to make only one character, but due to the part selection, we will now be making TWO characters. These characters will be placed into Transformers Universe; The Scrapmetal head will be used to make INFERNO. Due to the piledrivers, colors, and head sculpt, it would be silly not to use the Ramble head to make RUMBLE.
Brian also informs me that the Wednesday class has eight slots still open.
