We have an update for you on the shipping progress of the TFSS 5.0 set of figures. As you remember, the figures have been delayed, but we can pass along the word that the container containing the figures has arrived and orders are to be sorted this week! If you ordered these figures, you do need to log in and verify your address before 5pm Tuesday to receive the figures. We have quoted the full email below.

Hello subscribers!

Believe it or not the container is FINALLY here!
We will be preparing your first of three shipments this week so we need you to log in and verify your address on file by 5 pm on Tuesday March 14.
We have packed this final version in sets of two so you will only receive 3 shipments instead of 6.

Thanks for your patience!

I was able to pre-order the 3 I wanted (to complete Wreckage) from BBTS. It will probably take a little while longer, but at least I don't have to worry about getting different figures I have no interest in.

Still no reveal for the 7th "Bonus" figure yet?

Nope. Not even a hint of it's identity in any of the TCC fiction. This could be the first mystery figure to actually be a complete mystery prior to its arrival at someone's doorstep.

Whoever it turns out to be, I just hope its An Autobot/Maximal, or any "good" robot. My Optimus Maximus is missing a limb and needs it for completion ;) .

My theory is that the mystery figure is Ironclad from the Rook mold with it's alternate head. They said the mystery figure was using a head not released yet and he is the reason that wreckage can combine. I also think it would be cool if he came with a redeco of legends groove as the "energy efficient" afterburner but that's not likely to happen.

I once thought that too, but was shot down when someone told me that the idea for the 7th figure came about before the time when Ironclad would have been conceived. I'd like it if it turned out to be Ironclad, though. ;)^

Do we know which of the six figures will be shipped first?

Oh, damn that's depressing lol I would've loved to have been able to put together Hasbro's initial concept for computron before deluxe afterburner happened. Plus rook is the best mold from combiner wars

No clue, but we do know they are shipping in "pairs", and the third shipment would *I assume* have 3 since it will contain the Bonus Figure.

Additionally the CW/UW Deluxe Figures with the fewest uses are the F1 Racer , the Deluxe Motorcycle, and of course the Space Shuttle (which is highly unlikely TFCC would use). But it would be nice if whatever character they make it would be one of those three.

Maybe it's not a combiner mold at all. Maybe it's Sunder from CW Buzzsaw.

OH, GOD, PLEASE DON'T LET MY JOKE BE TRUTH!!!

The TCC wasn't aware of the existence of the Deluxe Motorcycle or Space Shuttle when they were planning out their lineups for BotCon 2016, TFSS 4.0, and TFSS 5.0. Those two molds didn't exist back when they were making their mold selections (remembering these things were being worked on prior to BotCon 2015). There were a number of figures unknown to us at the time (such as Onslaught and Brawl) made known to the TCC, but the TakaraTomy only figures weren't made known to them by Hasbro (if Hasbro even knew that Takara was going to make them back when they provided the info to the TCC).

We know it will be a CW deluxe, and have an all-new head sculpt. That's about all we know.

Wouldn't it be awesome if it was that unused Demolishor version of Onslaught?

Actually, just for reference; anyone got that list of currently unused CW headsculpts? Lookin' at you, Jelze...

They didn't say an all new head sculpt but a head sculpt not used by Hasbro.

Thank goodness. I was starting to worry a little.

...I didn't get an email. is that bad?

Kurona wrote:UW Blast Off as Spacewarp? :shock:


Leaving aside that someone's mentioned how they wouldn't have known about the mold, there's already a little Spacewarp included with double pretender Megs.

Why do I get the feeling it's probably the Starscream head?
