We received an update on the upcoming GI Joe/Transformers Club Membership figure courtesy of the Club. Here is the update:

To members of both clubs:

All Domestic free figures were mailed on 6/2/16. These items were sent via bulk mail service through the Post Office, which can take 3-4 weeks for delivery.

All International free figures were mailed on 6/24/16. These items were sent via bulk mail international service through FedX, which can take 6-8 weeks for delivery. These originally were supposed to go DHL and we had many issues with them so we had to switch to Fedex. Fedex transports the figures to your country and puts them in your country's mail system. We apologize for the delay.

If you do not receive your figure(s) by the end of July, please contact us at admin@funpubinc.com, and we will be happy to check on your figure.

These shipments do not have individual tracking numbers since they were sent via bulk mail services. If your item has to be re-routed for any reason this can make the delivery process even longer. If your item is returned to us due to an address change, you will be notified, and you will be responsible for the new shipping fee. If you had multiple memberships and multiple figures coming, these are not guaranteed to be delivered together. To be eligible for the 2016 free figure item you had to be an active member on or by 3/18/16.

Please do not contact our office until the end of July concerning these figures.

Thanks for your support! Have a great summer!

Brian

I'm guessing they could have saved themselves a lot of customer service emails and sent this note out when the figures were shipped, but, you know, funpub.

Shouldn't the next sub figure have been mailed or should be mailed about now?

I thought there was an email about that last week.

Impactor or Bludgeon? I think Impactor to delay the combining as long as possible.

I've heard others say that the shipping methods they use have indicated that the next one may possibly be on its way.

Ok, I usually hear about that stuff too, it just hasn't happened this time around.

I always get my figure the day after the first arrival.

I'm kind of eagerly anticipating Bludgeon for some reason. >:oP

Gonna have to disagree with you and say Bludgeon is next due to it being easier to ship the 7th figure with Impactor than it would with Bludgeon

I don't see how delaying the combination further benefits them, since by figure 5 you'll have had to pay for everything anyhow IIRC. I'd think they'd go for Bludgeon first so the combiner COULD be made, and hold Impactor back to start the next one after. Especially if the bonus figure is part of Wreckage, in which case releasing it with Impactor means they can show Wreckage on Impactor's instructions.

So have we heard anything new about TFSS 5.0 yet? I'd imagine they'd have to start shipping out soon to get them all out in time, maybe even have to pair up figures since they have until December to get them out.

Nothing since a July email that said not until late Fall. And, yes, that they'd have to ship multiple figures together.

Note that Fall began this past week.

Finally, an update at the bottom of their latest club store email. Looks like some of this has been pushed back to 2017.

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?

Time will tell. I don't read this as shipping in 2017. Just paying.

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.

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.

I'm a little disappointed this will go into the new year, but it does free up my wallet now.

Yeah, it's a little upsetting that 5.0 won't be coming until next year but damn, my wallet needs a break this year. I have quite a few preorders for November and December and two installment payments on top of those would've hurt. Then there's also Christmas as well. I was also hoping to not have to order such a big lot just for that green Megatron. I guess I'll have to pass on him as I don't have the extra money to order the set and sell off what I don't want. Especially because I might end up not selling the rest of the set off.

I still think it's a waste that Scorponok isn't using the Blackjack mold considering Toxitron is using the Battle Core Optimus mold. Scamper is cool and all especially since I don't have him yet but another Blackjack would've been better for the combiners sake.

Scorponok is using the Scamper mold so as to let Scorponok be considered an accessory to Fractyl rather than as his own figure, like how Scamper was deemed an accessory to Metroplex.

Plus, the Scamper mold has a visored face with a mouth and big forearms like Scorponok had, whereas the Blackjack mold doesn't have those distinctively Scorponok-like features. Nor is Scorponok meant to be part of a combiner.

So, i got in on all 3 crossover sets.
I had originally hoped that the only human 2packs would have made it through but i will take the 2 single offerings and hope that the other 2 will show up somehow in the "future"...
The set is intriguing, however it really was the MP Rabat that sold me on it.
Whether or not that will prove wise will only be learned once i have it in hand.
On another note, purchasing these has me seriously considering the SDCC16 crossover set as well.
Never got my hands on one of the SDCC x-over offerings before, so it would be a good addition now that the TFCC items are a go.
