And with the arrival of the first Transformers Collectors' Club Subscription Service 4.0 figure, we receive news from the Club itself about the final service - now open for Club members to subscribe! Soon to be open for non-current members too, 5.0 will include the figures revealed during BotCon, as seen here. Check out more info below!

The Transformers Figure Subscription Service (TFSS) 5.0 order period is now open. As of now, the TFSS is only open to active Transformers Collectors’ Club members. In the next few weeks we will be offering an option for ANY past member of the Club to order the TFSS 5.0 as well. Stay tuned to TransformersClub.com for information on when that is available.

In the meantime, if you are an active member you can order your TFSS 5.0 now. Please note, there is no limit on the number of subscriptions you can purchase as the TFSS is built to order.

The order period will run until midnight May 26, 2016. In addition, please ignore the Join link on the log in page. It has been disabled.

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 and we hope you are as excited as we are about the TFSS 5.0!

- Brian

U.S. retail, eh? So this means any unrevealed and Japan-only pretools are fair game. So these figures are strong contenders:

- Ghost Starscream
- Curse Armada Thrust
- Rook's alternate head
- Brawl's alternate head
- Trailbreaker's alternate head aka Hoist (if we're to believe FunPub's fiction)

Unless it isn't a CW Deluxe mold. As the 4.0 mystery figure is said to be a CW Deluxe, the 5.0 figure needn't have be one as well. ;)

Since Wreckage only needs one more limb from either year... it's gonna be a long wait.

strange that i never get these emails even though im an active member. need to wait to make sure i can afford to subscribe. bad idea for them to try and charge for both subs in the same month

It's not on the web page yet. Just in the e-mails.

EDIT: I had the link here, trying to be helpful, but a post elsewhere suggests that, if you use that, you might find yourself trying to buy a shipment to be mailed to MY address. So I took it down to be safe. Sorry.

No problem, I'll just keep my eyes open for the email. Thanks!

I'm a little disappointed they're going to start 5.0 billing before 4.0 gets the 2nd in. May is a huge month for large releases with UW Bruticus, Victorion, tfss 4.0, armada skywarp, TR probably seeing initial distribution, cyclonus set, and all immediately following Botcon. Great time to be a well bankrolled collector.

I wish there was an option to receive all 7 figures at the end of the service period. I don't need to be the first person to get the figures, but I woul like to save $30-$40 on shipping, which is over 10% of the entire subscription cost.

It's less than ideal, but it's all a race to get finished by December 31st at this point.

I completely understand that aspect.

It's just I've agreed with my wife on a budget for my spending on collecting so that I don't go overboard and I don't like having to ask if I can go over my budget. :oops:

Is anyone else getting this error from the link?:

Transformers Collectors' Club Figure Subscription Service V.5
The subscription service period has now expired.

I'm unable to order, so I've emailed TCC about it.

I'm getting the same error. Did they sell out their expectations in a day?

I'm betting it's just another technical problem, as the order period is supposed to last four weeks.

So, if you are like me, you were probably thrilled to see you received the email from Brian Savage at the much beloved Transformers Collector Club which stated the TFSS 5.0 order period was now open for active TCC members. Well, MAYBE it's just me, but when I go to try to log in to order, what do I get, but a nice screen telling me that the subscription period has now expired. Really?! I don't know the whole reason why Brian Savage and gang are not doing BOTCONs and any more TCC after this next go around, but this is probably a big reason. They cannot get simple things right like their web-based ordering service. Every year they had to change it and put out more and more excuses about why BOTCON registration was later and later. I know I am complaining, and it's unfortunate, too, because I really love the exclusive figures. I haven't figured out why they ever sold retail figures online when their selection was so crummy--you could just go to your local Target, Toys R Us, or Walmart and get a 1000% better selection on retail figures. But they were it for the BOTCON and TCC exclusives. Really a shame. I did the "I'll just shut up and please take my money!" bit for years, but now I can't even do that anymore. Brian, you made this so much harder than it had to be!

Let me hear your gripes and complaints!

P.S. I'm still waiting for my Universe 2.0 Voyager Class Tread Bolt figure I ordered from the TCC back in 2008 that I never received, but that Brian Savage himself PROMISED ME I would get.

Uh huh...sure.

I remember hearing quite often back in the day that people were having to flip their convention sets, to cover the cost of the trip and buy what they really wanted. That never really made sense to me but, there ya go.

I posted on their Facebook page about the "expiration", and to their credit, they replied saying they'd temporarily taken the link down to remove the "Sign Up Here" link, because they're no longer accepting memberships. I was able to successfully register.

Okay, I can't even log into the club period. I'm at the member's login screen. My email and password are in and I click 'go'. And nothing happens. What the hell is going on?
