They would, and you know it. Also, agreed.

Looks like the front of the fuselage/backpack, and the front sections of the legs. though it might end up that the whole backpack piece ends up blue, I dunno. we'll have to wait for production samples as opposed to magical photoshops.

It looks like they may have swapped/fixed the picture since then, or I'm absolutely losing my grip on reality, as I swear the fuselage and leg shell pieces were blue earlier today Image

As much as I am tired of all the CW repaints I would buy Needlenose and Spinister if they were in shops because I'm fond of those characters from their roles in the Marvel Comics (both the UK and US). Bringing back the Targetmaster buddies really add to the appeal too. I don't care about the combining (and I don't much like the Bludgeon, I far prefer my Headrobots-enhanced RotF Bludgeon) but the characters, yeah...


Anyone want to sell me Needlenose and Spinister sometime? :)

I really want to sign up for this set, but I'm a bit spooked by the price considering it already being pricy for signing up for the TFCC in the UK. :(


Any UK seibertronians on the board a member of the collectors club?
What sort of price would I be looking at for a club membership and a tfss subscription in our superior great british pounds sterling? :???:

I'm surprised there isn't an option to receive a lump shipment of the figures at the end of the service. That might give international customers more flexibility in cost (cheaper to send all at once) and ease of mind (less possibility of loss or damage).

If this were a proper Needlenose, the tail rudder would be removable and easily lost so it could wind up on eBay for astronomical prices

Did the head change? did they use a different mold before or was I dreaming it looked different.

EDIT: and nevermind :D

I didn't even know there would be targetmasters. Bonus!

Depends on Hasbro, I think.

A couple of points support this being said without saying it. We have this Tweet, I think some things were said about more product synergy in the Botcon TFCC panel (maybe not in those words?), and this goes back to what Jerry hinted to me in February (comes around 1 hr 24 minute mark) as well.

In other words, if "Titan Wars" is the theme next year, I'd expect a good amount of TFCC stuff that can jump in with that.

Don't think I should have to write this but just in case: this is all just my speculation.

Because we have 4 uses of one of them and 5 of the other? Let me know when they get to 31 like the Classics Seekers. :)

How many uses has the Universe Nightstick mould had? (still won't be as many as the Classics seeker one)

Would've bought it if this was a retail release. But this is just one of the things wrong with how Hasbro handles this franchise.

Agreed, sadly I can't afford this; I most definitely would've bought this or any similar set of :CON: at retail - especially in lieu of either '84 team, as much as I like them, I would have much preferred a :CON: team >:oP

Question for TFSS veterans: on the installment plan, how often do they do it? I understand that the first installment is $99, but is it $99 per month? Is it bimonthly?

The first installment is due when you sign up. Sometime next year you will get the first two figures. After the 2nd figure ships, they will send out an email letting you know when they will charge for the second installment for the next 2. After the fourth figure ships they will do the same for the final 2. They will also charge you shipping and the $5 service fee for each installment so it will probably be $115-$120 each payment. The figure ship 1 per month.
