With the Club Subscription Service slowly drawing to a close, we bring to you tonight our latest galleries, that of the Club Subscription 4.0 Impactor and Bluestreak!

Impactor is a retool of Combiner Wars Rook with a fresh new headsculpt that captures the shear determination in the Wrecker Commander's face. He is the second official Impactor toy, behind only his Fall of Cybertron counterpart - who was also part of a combiner - and is the club's sixth subscription figure.

Bluestreak is a repaint of Combiner Wars Prowl and Smokescreen, and this is his first time as being a combiner limb. This Bluestreak also uses the rarely seen "blue" Bluestreak paint job, and he fits right in with the Wreckers as well, considering his personality is that of a sniper. He is the club bonus figure for the 4.0 service.

Check out the preview of the galleries below, and you can go to the full galleries by clicking any one of the images below!

Can't wait to see Impactor's new team of Wreckers all together once the rest of them get released (Counterpunch, Fractyl, and Toxitron, while Alpha Bravo and Offroad are both deceased now).

And then they shall Wreck and Rule once they combine into the mighty monstrosity created to fight Thunder Mayhem: Wreckage!!!

His gallery's gonna be so epic once the rest of his components get released. 8-)

I'm also really looking forward to Wreckage, especially Fractyl and Counterpunch.

So, does Fractyl not come with an HFG? I remember reading that Terrorsaur didn't come with one; does that carry over? And negated by using the sword as the Impactor-esque harpoon.

Does Toxitron have a new robot head, while using the Optimus Maximus combiner head on the Motormaster body? Can't recall.

Fractyl should have a HFG. The use of Toxitron's sword as Wreckage's own Impactor-esque harpoon is just a little creativity on the Club's part. When Wreckage was previously formed with Alpha Bravo and Offroad instead of Impactor and Bluestreak, he had two normal hands.

Toxitron uses the Ultra Prime/Optimus Maximus combiner head on the Motormaster body, and had a Hasbro-made pretooled standard robot head that was originally intended for a potential CW Nemesis Prime. But when Takara went and made their UW Grand Scourge figure, any plans for a CW Nemesis Prime by Fun Pub were scrapped since Grand Scourge was essentially the same concept, so Fun Pub went instead with using the Nemesis head for a different evil Optimus lookalike: Toxitron.

Beautiful!

The Counterpunch head is also a pretooled head that went unused, correct? Has anybody identified who it might have been for?

I like the colors on Impactor. I always thought his mohawk looked really neat. Kinda bummed he doesn't have his construction stripes though.

I always thought Bluestreak would be nice as a sniper (with blue energy ammunition), which seems to be kind of what they're going for here (albeit with his name coming from stealth technology rather than a sniper rifle).

If TFwiki is to be believed. But there's nothing that says you couldn't use someone else's HGF bit. ;)

I'll look into that and check that line's validity.

I need to dig out the impactor instructions with the pic of wreckage, but iirc the instructions show impactor's "rook" hfg positioned as a shoulder cannon --- not as wreckage's foot (in lieu of fractyl coming with his own). The two cars have their appropriate hfg.

Why exactly did terrorsaur NOT come with one?

The simplest answer given was that the factories simply didn't include it when they produced the figure.

My assumption would be that unlike every other single-carded Combiner Wars limb releases, Terrorsaur simply doesn't have a designated/intended team to go with.

Kinda strange that he'd come with Scorponok and not Sandstorm isn't it? What's the relationship with Scorponok? Just another piece for the Dawn of Future's Past set?

The purpose of including Scorponok was to finally complete the cast of pre-beast Beast Wars characters from the show, as Scorponok was the last one needing to be done. The Scamper mold is considered an accessory, rather than a whole figure on its own, by Hasbro, so that status enabled Scorponok to be included in the TFSS 5.0 as an accessory to one of the six main figures rather than taking up a whole figure slot of its own.

As for why Scorponok was included with Fractyl specifically instead of with any of the others, Fractyl's the only character in the set who was originally a Beast Wars character, so I guess it made sense to package one BW character with another BW character.

With how many times I've pushed for the correct color for it, Fractyl had better come with a HFG!!

On the subject of Counterpunch's head, did Hasbro ever tell the Club who those heads were originally planned to be for? Reflector and "Nemesis Prime" were easy to guess, but Rook's (Brawl-like head) and Wheeljack's (used for Counterpunch) are less so.

Which Rook had a new head?

Yeah, I've been wondering the same for the Counterpunch head.

CW Rook has an alternate head that resembles Brawl's. So far it has only seen use in Club fiction, look up Shattered Glass X-Brawn:

Counterpunch was designed as Counterpunch. Like Reflector and Ratchet, he was one of the suggestions made by the design team to Fun Pub.

As far as Rook's alternate head... OMAM and its prose stories were sort of like the Club's take on Combiner Wars, weren't they? I wonder if there were any hints in there?
