Seibertronian Grimdragon2001 has given us a further update on the shipping of the Subscription Service 5.0 figures. The figures, as we know, have been pushed back, and it now appears they will be shipping at the end of February. The figures are also now being sent in 3 shipments. You can read the forwarded email text below.

Merry Christmas!

Due to manufacturing delays, the container will not leave China until the middle of January. This means that your first shipment should depart here by the end of February. Because of the delays, we have combined the figures into three shipments. After the first shipment we will run the billing for the second installment. We will not schedule the two installment billings until we have the container in hand. I know you are all anxious to receive the final figures from the Transformers Collectors' Club.

Thanks for your patience.

The first ones in March, then April, and May most likely.

What a joke.

The original projected shipping provided was the shortest/quickest timetable estimate offered by the factory.

In other words, the "nothing goes wrong/gets delayed" estimate. But since no one lives in a perfect world, that estimate was probably bound to get pushed back.

Perhaps the Club should have gone with a longer, "more realistic" time frame. But everyone was really hoping they'd be in by now.

Perfect! Was kinda hoping this would happen as it gives me time to get my taxes back to pay for it.

This really isn't a big deal. It's not like they haven't had delays before and they've always pulled through. It was pretty optimistic to expect them to do both 4.0 and 5.0 in 2016. These are still getting out faster than usual.

1.0 - June 2013
2.0 - June 2014
3.0 - May 2015
4.0 - April 2016
5.0 - February 2017 (?)

We'll probably have all of them by April, I'm fine with this.

I don't mind a bit of extra time to get money together for the other two payments. I really want these, particularly the Wreckage components (Wreckage is my new favorite combiner), and I'd rather get them late than not at all.

I just hope the shipments are split so that the wreckage components are together, and the Pretenders are together, (I just want the Wreckage ones). But I fear they will make them mixed assortments, which will make them harder to get on eBay etc...

The reason they don't is so that people dont just pay fir installments, get the first or second installment, then dissappearand leave FunPub on the hook for figures the person did not want. Even with this abridged version, I would bet someone else's money that theyvpair up the less popular figures eith the ones people want. And Toxitron is probably gonna be last.

1)A pretender and a deluxe
1)the oter pretender and a limb
3)Toxitron, whomever is left, and the bonus figure

Was the e-mail about the shipping delays sent to everyone who subscribed? I'm signed up but didn't get the e-mail and I'm wondering if I should be concerned . . .

It's been a while since we heard about these, but it looks as though the BotCon 2016 revealed Ninja Force Hologram Megatron figure is arriving in some collectors' hands! The images of the GI Joe vs Transformers crossover below are courtesy of Planet Iacon on Facebook, and show off the two modes of the translucent Decepticon leader (from G2!) using the Combiner Wars Warpath mold. Check them out!

Wasn't that mold Megatron before it was Warpath?

And thanks to fellow Seibertronian starfish, we have even more images of the TFCC GI Joe x Transformers Megatron G2 Hologram (from the Ninja Force set) AND of the MP Ratbat cassette redeco, too - as they have apparently arrived a fair while back, but everyone was distracted by other news! With thanks to starfish, check out the shared images below!

From what I can gather, this set has been sent out in batches, rather than in one fell swoop. I'm based in the U.K., and I think (for once) they sent the international packages out first!

That MP Ratbat really is a nice figure. As a big fan of the G1 comics, where he was a prominent character, I'm very happy to have him in my collection. That mold of Megatron, though? Ugh.

Yeah, I just wanted to spotlight Warpath a little. He gets no love. :(

I actually think I like this version of Ratbat better than the one that came with MP Soundblaster!!

What's wrong with Megatron?! Other than the barrel of the tank not being on his shoulder... :-D
