Thanks to the Collectors Club itself, we have word that the final Figure Subscription Service has been extended until this Friday at 11pm. We have mirrored the message below for all to read. As you may remember, we have mentioned before that the Subscription is open to all previous members, so if you are included in that list, order up!

The Transformers Figure Subscription Service (TFSS) 5.0 order period has been extended until Friday at 11PM central time.

You can order your TFSS 5.0 until then. Please note, there is no limit on the number of subscriptions you can purchase as the TFSS is built to order.

You can either pay in full or by installment. Also, everyone that completes the full TFSS will also receive a BONUS 7th deluxe figure! This bonus 7th deluxe figure features a head sculpt not yet released at U.S. retail.

Thank you for your support! This is it! The last Transformers FSS! Don't miss it.

- Brian

Read the prose so toxitron is a reception and put an Autobots symbol on him in order to gain access to autobot bases. Pretty cool idea.

the @The_TF_Club twitter page put up a new image suggesting members of sub 5.0 are meant to combine with Alpha Bravo and Offroad. wonder what this amalgamation of bots and cons will be named

Its name is Wreckage.

Alpha Bravo and Offroad are included in the group on the off chance that someone is getting the TFSS 5.0 but didn't get the 4.0 with Impactor and the mystery figure to complete the intended final combination for Wreckage, giving those who missed out another option with two retail figures that they might already own.

ahh i see, well i guess that kind of kills my hope that the mystery figure would have been Eagleeye from Armada Starscream. too bad, really wanted to finish Serpent O.R.'s unit

While I certainly appreciate options, I don't see how that would work, since Impactor is 4.0 while Counterpunch and Toxitron are 5.0....

If someone gets 5.0 but not 4.0, then they'd be missing Impactor and the 4.0 mystery figure. AB and Offroad's inclusion allows any 5.0 consumers to use them in place of the two missing 4.0 limbs.

Plus, what combiner wouldn't want a psychotic axe-murderer and a god included in their gestalt :lol:

I get that, but that would still be a combination that, apparently, would never appear in the fiction. Why not use any other two CW figs lying around?

Because they're technically 'taken' by G1 nostalgia or lore or something like that - they're free agents, it's scramble-city, swap whom you want where you want them ;)

Because... Alpha Bravo and Offroad have the least amount of characterisation so far and thus are perfect for FunPub's clay modeling practices?

Apologies if I'm misreading the chat, but Wreckage using AB and Offroad as limbs does appear in fiction - that's the focus of the short story, canonizing a Wreckage team that doesn't rely on the 4.0 subscription service.

I'm actually really disappointed that they didn't make a new combined head for this guy.

You're not misreading. I was simply miscounting. I wasn't thinking about taking Impactor OUT to make room for these two. Sorry about that.

We may just see one. Who knows what adding the last two intended members could do with his noggin.

And that is on par with regular CW practices btw. Only regular heads are switched out, but not Combiner heads. Toxitron's regular head is an unused Hasbro design, in case you didn't know.

Hopefully the final product changes. And I'm aware of how the retail products work I was just hoping that since it's a club combiner that they would make a new head for him like they did for thunder mayhem.

Granting that it *does* seem that this story is written specifically to give folks who bought only TFSS 5.0, but not 4.0, an option to create a canonical Wreckage at home, I think we can now accept as a foregone conclusion that no new combiner head is forthcoming.

gotta say, while it's not a new head, putting the Ultra Prime head on the Motormaster body is an interesting twist. I mean, they could have just left the Menasor head on there
Re: TFSS 5.0 order period extended until Friday (1793378)
Posted by Sabrblade on May 28th, 2016 @ 10:33pm CDT
Yeah, at first I was hoping they would put the Ultra Prime head on the Motormaster body, but when I learned that there hasn't been a previous case of a reshelled mold having swapped parts with the original mold, I retracted my hopes and resided myself to just expecting the Menasor head in green and purple.

Now that we see that they did manage to use the Ultra Prime head, that's incredible!
