Thats right Seibertronians, according to a report on TFW2005, Club members are reporting that the fifth and final figure for the Club exclusive gestalt is finally arriving at members homes. mykticon furnished images as proof of receiving the main piece of the five bot combiner.

For those of you not familiar with the set, the Transformers Collectors Club has been giving these exclusive figures to members as an incentive for membership over the last 5 years! The five figures are Landquake, Skyfall, Topspin, Breakaway and HEATWAVE. This last piece makes combining the long awaited gestalt a reality to faithful Club members who've been waiting with great anticipation for this last part.

I must say I'm kind of disappointed with the head, though it's not the best of pictures. I guess I was expecting something a little more epic.

Usually how it works for me; see members are getting something, and get it within a week or so myself. Nothing in the box yet, today (though I might go back out again after while and check again), so I'll just have to keep watch in coming days.

"Nexus...Maximus"? That's a pretty damn ridiculous name.

Wow! I am surprised. I was thoroughly under the impression that this wouldn't ship until Post-BotCon. I'm still doubtful I'll get mine any time soon, cuz I never get mine until a week or two after everyone else has theirs in the USA. But, that's more likely customs issue than a FunPub issue (though I half suspect that they ship Canadian and International members stuff after they finish shipping US Members products)

Yay! I can't wait to get mine

But I'm not sure if I like the new head...

And I thought the combiner was supposed to be a Prime?

I live like 3 hours from their Hq and It takes weeks for me to get stuff from them..I would almost just drive up there and get it rather than wait LoL.. This is the first figure in the combiner series I'm getting , depending on how he looks , I might get the others.. That is if i can ... He doesn't look to bad, the head is kinda turn offish but I can live with it..

The combiner was supposed to be one of the original 13... though not all of The Thirteen were dubbed Prime (though many are). Nexus, I'm sure, is due to his cross-dimensional nature - five parts from, as I count it, 4 different universes (Skyfall and Landquake from the A/E/C universe, Breakaway from Classics, Topspin from some undisclosed universe, and Heatwave from Shattered Glass).

I agree, though - to me, he'll probably be Nexus Prime.

Take a look at the carving from one of the comics. The head is different to the one that was released.

The new head reminds me of a combination of Piranacon and Beast Wars Quickstrike.

So all these years of being promised remolds and then finally being told "it'll only be a head" ... that's all we get?

meh, what do I care, mine probably won't arrive for another year anyway.

Hang on, they only ever promised a new combiner head not any other remolding. Next year, I am hoping for a new addition to Shattered Glass. Maybe Soundwave since he is in Heatwave's comic.

Well, TECHNICALLY (as I remember it), we were initially promised remolding on every toy... then when Skyfall came out, they promised remolding on everything else, since they couldn't work it in for that one... then when Landquake was released, they said they would try to get remolding on the other 2 limbs and body... then they kind of gave up, and promised at least a new head.

The new head reminds me of a combination of Piranacon and Beast Wars Quickstrike.


My first impression was that it's a throwback/homage to RiD Omega Prime... though I can see bits and pieces of other characters (like the two you mentioned) in it. Or more specifically, I *can't* refute anything, since the photo is so blurry. :D

Well, as I recall it, Skyfall was supposed to have a new head and then he didnt due to an explained combination of time and monetary issues, they then said that they would "try" to have remolding done on the others but that it was unlikely (because of the monetary concerns, not time ones) and, since Skyfall, I at least have not expected a remolded part on any of the limbs. We all, at the TFCC message board, were really pushing the "at least give the combined mode a new head" angle for a solid while, and that is what we got and all that I expected we would get after the very first "dissapointment".

emeraldbeacon had it right, they promised changes to each figure from the get go, first one was released with nothing, then there was "we'll try" and eventually we got a new head.

To me it's just another negative for FunPub and in my eyes.

Shattered Glass Soundwave is already a toy. He is the White Soundwave MP3 Player that Takara released in 2007.

Actually, when he arrives on Earth he takes a body similar to Classics 2.0 Ironhide. He even wears a headband.
