If you're still waiting for your Transformers Collectors' Club Subscription Service 5.0 figures, which we were told would ship mid-January as reported here, are now due to leave their point of origin this month, giving them until March to actually arrive in your hands. More information below.

This is a resend in case you didn't get this last week.

Hello Everyone!

We just found out that the ship did not sail before Chinese New Year with the FSS 5 figures aboard. It was delayed over 3 weeks and is now scheduled to leave Hong Kong on Saturday Feb 11. With everyone (in China) out on holiday for CNY, we were not informed of this until yesterday.

This puts the figures here around the first of March and we will get the first shipment out to you as soon as we can. I will keep you advised when the container arrives here.

I apologize for the continual delay.

Brian

Chances the factory being used still thinks FSS figures are for Botcon, even though Botcon is over? Close to 100% by the looks of it.

Yes. It would be nice to get my final figures from the Club, thank you.

Courtesy of this tweet from Twitter user Autovolt, we have a new image of a figure that was once in TFCC's plans before being unfortunately cancelled - an apparently fully Cybertronian counterpart to Sari Sumdac from Transformers: Animated, presumably transplanted into a non-Animated continuity! While it is sad we'll likely never get this Windblade retool, take a look at the picture below and tell us what you think in the forums nonetheless!

Hey neat! That's from that new Transformers Animated fan book that just came out in Japan. There are a few other Animated-based proposals from Jesse Wittenrich in it.

Can you tell us about the others?

Are these "we were going to for sure do these before the license got pulled" or "just pitched ideas we moved on from or weren't allowed to do" material? One of those things is very different from the other.

now that we have a Windblade headmaster otw, I feel its not too late for this one. in fact it might be more appropriate with that mold

This is where I found out about the book, with a ton of pics from the book shown here.

This post lists all of Jesse's proposals that made it into the book:
Image
JESSE WITTENRICH
He offers an illustration and comics in TFCC.
He is in charge of a story line in Wings of Honor
He participates in the concept of TFCC and the BOTCON item from 2010.
It is Dion that he dealt first.
The sample photograph of his interview and item which was not manufactured is placed.

AOTOBOT Sari (Body is Windblade new head)
BW Megatron (Body is ANIMATED Grimlock)
BW Optimus Primal (Body is Sentinel Prime)
Wreck-Gar (Body is PRIME Breakdown new head)
Unknown name (Coloring near Yoketron, Body is Voyager class Brainstorm, New face)
The fifth one whose name was unknown is supposed to be Yoketron himself.

Jesse then elaborated more here on the proposals that got put into the book, how some of them were for one Animated-based proposal while the others were for a different Animated-related proposal:
These are from two separate proposals. The first one was an all Beast Wars-themed set which told the story of Primal Minor searching for his missing friend. His journeys take him to a strange jungle where he finds a collective of odd semi-organic Decepticons, led by none other than Blackarachnia! The dark-hearted spider has continued her experiments and created Fractyl, Terrorsaur, Inferno, Antagony, and Megatron - an egotistical former tyrant who reminded her of her previous boss. To Minor's horror, also among the Decepticons is his friend, now renamed "Tri-Nox*", given a prehistoric beast mode, and enslaved using a control collar and brainwave bolts. The stalwart Autobot explorer must battle these Decepticons - or Predacons as they've taken to calling themselves - alone and so resorts to guerrilla warfare as he also tries time and again to break Blackarachnia's hold over Tri-Nox.

The second was Transformers Unanimated, featuring Optimus Prime, Ratchet, Sentinel Prime, Sari, and Yoketron vs. Starscream/Headmaster, Lugnut, Wasp, Elita-One, and a confused Wreck-Gar.

*Tri-Nox was going to just be a joke... until I did the mock-up and found I actually loved the results.

Note that the "Tri-Nox" mock up is not in the book. Jesse posted it himself.

Also note that since the book is a fanbook, nothing within it is officially licensed by Hasbro or TakaraTomy.

That's so... sad. ;n;

I hope this is a hint that Sari might show up again in fiction though.

Hm - that Sari Sumdac wind blade would have been nice...

Another great idea going down with the ship... really hope the successor of the Club (of there's going to be one, that is) capitalizes on this one!

?!?!?! But I WANT IT!!

Was this supposed to be the secret figure in this set?

Do we even still get a secret figure?

Damn, that's actually a really good take on this figure.

I guess it helps that it's powered by unobtanium.

This paint job looks utterly amazing, but then I remember just how floppy and messy the Generations Windblade mould is.

It has gotten me thinking; maybe a custom based on the current RID one would do well. Just a thought. I'll go ask Steamshield on TFW.

Windblade as Sari?
Well, this could work VERY well!

But I have a better idea. Make her a titant master. On a clearly feminine body. That was my hope in Animated. But the show abruptly ended. Oh well.
