This image was also accompanied by the following details on next year's club subscription:

"If you are not currently a Transformers Collectors' Club (TCC) member OR if you need to renew, now is the time! Issue 67 of the TCC magazine will be the first issue of 2016 and will feature some AMAZING content! A selection of never before seen items, the start of the 2016 storyline (if you are a G1 fan you should REALLY dig this) and a look at the art for the 2016 Free Membership Incentive Figure RAMJET!

For those of you that enjoy the TCC Prose fiction, we have some big plans for 2016 as well! We will be announcing those plans in the next Issue of the magazine (A hint, it will tie in to the TFSS 5.0!)

Thank you to everyone who has made the TCC a part of your Transformers hobby! It is hard to believe that Ramjet is our 12th Membership Figure and we can't wait to show you the final samples with the NEW head sculpt!"


Don't forget to let us know what you think of him in the discussion. Do you like Skywarp more than Ramjet? Are you going to get him to complete the Armada 'Seeker Trio'? Let us know!

Clearly the head was a greater concern.

clearly if they went so far as doing a head a simple little thing like different tail wings would be no problem

Not when Fun Pub only ever retools one aspect per mold (usually being the head) outside of uber expensive super special "centerpiece" figures (which Skywarp most certainly isn't).

I totally included FOC seekers in my calculation - I was thinking Classics, FOC, and now Armada molds.

But you are correct. I did forget about those wily Legends class Seekers. I like those dudes. :D

Except that, that's not necessarily true, and that there's nearly no precedent for them retooling the bodies beyond the head (nacelle might be the only one that I can think of)

Why yes... yes I will. You know we're going to get CW seekers, in all the ways, given those head sculpts.

Grand Galvatron is so deliciously random...

Nacelle's wings were recycled from BotCon 2007 Thrust, whose wings were new tooling (but were the same tooling duplicated rather than two new wing molds).

BotCon 2014 Scorponok is another example of non-head retooling since that figure's neck piece is what was retooled (with the head itself being omitted).

Dude! I know! I'm still waiting for them :HEADHURTS:

I cannot believe neither company has done that yet, especially as they seemed to have tooled the head into the mold :HEADHURTS:
