Our very own Grimdragon2001 has done a video review of Funpub Transformers Timelines Lifeline and Quickslinger. In this video we can see that Lifeline is a redeco of Thrilling 30 Arcee and Quickslinger is a redeco of Thrilling 30 Flanker. These figures were available through The Hasbro Transformers Collectors' Club.

Lifeline is a Paradon medic from the G1 cartoon. She sports a mint green and white paint job that nearly mirrors Arcee. Quickslinger was once a soldier before she decided to become Lifeline's assistant. If you would like to see some in hand images of these figures please check out this article.

Mmmm, Lifeline looks lovely. The deco is superb, though I doubt I'll ever have the chance to own her.

Eh, you never know. Secondhand market, or one of the online shops might have some extra stock. (not at a reasonable price, mind you, even considering the markup for exclusivity) I liked Lifeline when I saw the announcement. She wasn't a "must have", but a figure I would have been glad to own. Speaking now though as a proud owner, I think I woulda been dissapointed if I had skipped her. So if you ever do get a chance, and are willing to pay a reasonable mark-up, I reccomend you do so. For me, Quickslinger is a neat piece on her own, but as an homage she misses the mark for me. Other than color, nothing makes me think of the Ransack redeco. I mention this, because you might find a loose Lifeline without Quickslinger. And since one cannot hold the other anyway, that might be a satisfactory option for you?

So there's a Cybertronian version of Silent Hill. Good to know.

The colors are beautiful. I was surprised how nice he looked when I opened the box.

I didn't even realize she was a homage until just now when you pointed out that the Ransack repaint was the same colors.

Lifeline has paint dipped pink hands.

Fortunately I had already decided to cancel the remaining installments and sell the first shipment. Asinine decision.

Regarding the painted hands, that's a choice based on where the molded plastic tree colors come out. Can't get around it if you want that color hands.

Fully aware. Questionable decision. Heck initial mockupnhad green hands.

Hope you like ruining the hands if you ever insert her guns.

I recognized the painted hands and am choosing to simply display the item without guns in hands, thanks.

wow, total B.S. move BBTS. --If anyone has pre-ordered TFSS 5.0 from them, you should be getting an e-mail soon in you haven't already. They are stating now that because of TFCC combining the figure shipments, they are changing their orders accordingly, they had to have known about this months ago when everyone else was informed as well. I thought they'd do the right thing and just ship the figures I pre-ordered, but nope, they want you to order the whole thing, or nothing at all.--I honestly don't care about the packaging, I just wanted the figures to be able to finish "Wreckage"...and I had them all ordered individually.

So I've just cancelled all my pre-orders, and have to go searching on eBay, who knows, its probably for the best.

Imo how would bbts have known about the combined packaging? Funpub was less than clear other than stating "we will double ship." I doubt fp gave any more info that etailers than fans. They probably learned of the shenanigans when the toys first arrived as well.

If you just got an email, please copy it and paste it into the News and Rumors submission. I think it would do good to sharethis info.

while the identity of which figures would be shipped when, was kept under wraps, the knowledge that 7 figures would be sent in 3 different shipments has been known for a few months now if you search back on this thread, BBTS would have known about this as well. They should have taken down their pre-order listing altogether if they were concerned about "uneven" quantities.

Bottom Line--Instead of paying $80 for Fractyl, they want me to pay $170 for Fractyl & Lifeline, a figure I have no interest in, and I'm sure isn't going for $$90 by itself on eBay. Looks like I can get a better deal on a solo Fracyl anyone, so perhaps this is all for the best, also I've submitted the e-mail to Seibertron news.

Funpub never said the figures would be shipped together *in one package.* Not once. They said they'd have to end up double shipping to make up for lost time. The email you posted literally states that bbts only learned of the single package when we did. You're blaming bbts for something out of their control.

Funpub fucked up. What else is new? Glad they're dead. Nice people, terrible business people.

I figured based on last years packaging of Impactor & Bluestreak, this was obvious, it was a cost saving measure. Why ship two figures at the same time, in two separate boxes? That makes no sense... If I as just a single consumer could come to this logical conclusion, how could BBTS not?

So when other subscribers got their figures a month ago...what has BBTS been doing for the past month? I call BS on "they just found out" --They could have separated all the figs from their packaging and mailed them individually, and if they were short some figures, they should be offering compensation for any pre-orders they cant satisfy. They aren't willing to take a loss for a totally preventable error, is what I'm getting at, It's just not good business.

Bluestreak was the mystery bonus figure. As in prior subs, the mystery figure is packaged with the final figure. Has zero t do with the current situation.

"Easily preventable" when funpub can't give straight answers or clear info to folks paying a hundred dollars a pop for a deluxe repaint. I don't get your reasoning, man. Additionally, YOU might not care but a bunch of other folks would be pissed if they just received a loose toy out of nowhere.

Funpub fucked up and there's no winning here for anybody who was legitimately after one figure.

Seibertronian o.supreme has let us know that Big Bad Toy Store has changed its pre-orders regarding the upcoming Transformers Subscription Service 5.0 figures. The figures, which were originally only going to be sold individually, are now being sold in the 2-packs they are being shipped in. This means that anyone who pre-ordered only a single figure or a few individuals but not the whole group should check their Big Bad Toy Store orders. Big Bad Toy Store will not be splitting the pairs up, so if you only ordered one of the figures from the pair, you are being upgraded to the dual pre-order, which has a price of $169.99.

If this changes your mind as to whether or not you will pre-order, we suggest you go examine your Big Bad Toy Store pre-orders. The figures will be processing next Monday, April 17, and you can only decide whether or not you will keep your pre-orders until that date. We have mirrored o.supreme's email below for you to read.

I'm guessing bbts is livid. They don't know which pairs to put together for the remaining figures.
