Via TFCC envoy to the Seibertron.com boards TF_JW, we have an update on the future of the Club itself after this year's BotCon and Figure Subscription Service - it appears that TFSS 5.0, for which the registration deadline is tomorrow March 16th, will be the last for FunPub and their collaboration with Hasbro. This was also confirmed in the Gregg Berger announcement for BotCon. Read more below!

Thank you to each and every one of you that has supported us over the last 12 years. The party isn't over yet though as we have a big year still to come, with the TFSS 4.0 starting to ship next month and the TFSS 5.0 starting soon! At BotCon 2016 we will be revealing all six TFSS 5.0 figures, so stay tuned for that.

In regard to memberships, some quick follow ups. If you are a member as of March 16th, 2016 you will be able to purchase the TFSS 5.0. If your membership expires during the time period when the 4.0 or 5.0 are shipping, you STILL can pay the installments (if that is the option you selected) and you will receive all your figures as you normally would.

As far as concerns over auto renewals after March 16th. As we have said, we are not taking any new memberships after this date, so there are no auto renewals as there will be no memberships to renew.

Finally, back to the very first point. Thank you! Thousands upon thousands of you have supported the Club over the years and right now, as of today, the TCC is the strongest it has been in a few years! That is because of all of you! Those who enjoy what the TCC offers and enjoy what we do. You are an amazing fan base and thanks to all of you who continue to have an important impact on the hobby! You all are what makes this fun to do!

Pretender Optimus Prime using the Gears mold? Does anyone have a bigger image of the "pretender" shell?

This site did, back when it was first shown in February, but now all those older pics are dead.

Had to go back to the Twitter source for the pics:

I hope this is the right place to ask this;

If I have updated my CC info already, does my membership auto reneew, or do I need to purchase it again?

Also, is it to late to sign up for the figure subscription service(the one with Pretender Prime, Medic, etc)?

So, since I'm a member tomorrow, I can still get 4.0 and 5.0. Okay, that works.

Straight from Botcon we bring you the latest update on the TFSS 5.0 collection as well as the G.I. Joe crossover exclusives. The known 6 figures for next years TFSS 5.0 will be:

-Counterpunch (Punch is no more)
-Paradron Medic
-Scorponok Pre-Beast Wars with Fractyl
-Toxitron (new head) (Combined form is called "Wreckage")
-New pretender shell Grand Maximus Legends Megatron
-TrukkMunky

The 7th figure is being kept a secret.

We also have an image of the GI Joe crossover, which features a translucent Legends Megatron, meant to mimic the G2 comic where Cobra was rebuilding Megatron, as well as a redecoed Masterpiece Ratbat. The images have all been mirrored below for your enjoyment. Check them out and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all you latest Transformers News and Galleries.

I'm all for that GI Joe set!!

Seeing that there is a Pretender Megatron to go with Optimus, I now want both. :lol:

Masterpiece Ratbat? That's surprising.

Fractyl and Scorponok, eh. Sounds like something Sabrblade would be into.

Toxitron is awesome, surprised they're not using the Optimus version of the mold.

Posted by RevTibe on April 9th, 2016 @ 3:29pm CDT
Generally good stuff, giving Pretender Optimus an arch-nemesis is a nice touch. The head retool on Toxitron seems like a bit of a waste though, especially considering that there are already two Optimus Prime molds for the Optimus/Motormaster body. (Is it still possible to mix-and-match between retools? Last I recall that happening was a helicopter exclusive, relatively recent.)

That is freakin' awesome to hear about Toxitron. I had mentioned a while back why HasTak hadn't considered this mold for him. Not that they heard me :-P but good things come for those that wait...epic! :KREMZEEK: :VEHI:

So I think it's safe to assume that 4.p and 5.0's 7th figures will be combiner wars decepticons so they can finish this combiner.

If this is the case, he'd still need two more limbs. I guess you might could slap Offroad on there, but then you'd take away from either Menasor or Galvatronus (depending on if you've got Wildrider or not and are a stickler for team cohesion).

Well if you count Terrorsaur then only one more would be needed. Isn't the seventh figure for 4.0 heavily rumored to be a CW Decepticon? I would imagine the 5.0 seventh figure would be Punch but that may just be too easy. Then again, Eject and Rewind. I'm more confused about the wasted potential of a fully complete combiner with Scorponok being made from Scamper and not Blackjack. Sure, there's Runabout and Runamuck but one should go to Grand Scourge and the other isn't out yet and will be fairly limited and expensive.

It's also pretty cool that they're reusing that Oilmaster Pretender shell and making another shell for Megatron but I'm not into those. I see them as wasted potential that could've gone to another larger figure or more extra smaller figures or weapons. They have to cater to all types though, or at least try, so it's ok though as I'll still get them and keep them.
