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

That or shipping with the Joecon sets. :/

Can you tell us about the others?

This is where I found out about the book, with a ton of pics from the book shown here.ScottyP wrote: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.
This post lists all of Jesse's proposals that made it into the book:
The fifth one whose name was unknown is supposed to be Yoketron himself.
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)
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:
Note that the "Tri-Nox" mock up is not in the book. Jesse posted it himself.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.
Also note that since the book is a fanbook, nothing within it is officially licensed by Hasbro or TakaraTomy.

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

Was this supposed to be the secret figure in this set?
Do we even still get a secret figure?

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

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.

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.
