Thanks to fellow Seibertronians Bounti76 and Megatronus for letting us know that the first figure from Transformers Collectors' Club subscription service 3.0 has started to arrive in mailboxes. Even better they sent us pics of the newly arrived figure. Bounti76 has Nova Prime unboxing the figure while Chromia looks on. The images that Megatronus sent us gives us another look at the figure as well as the Kre-O pieces that make up G.B. Blackrock and a laser blaster that converts to a gaspump. Check your mailboxes to see if Carzap with G.B. Blackrock is waiting for you too.

Honestly? He wasn't on my most anticipated list for the TFSS, let alone my list of figures that I'd want to rave about, but in hand, I feel like he's the best use of this mold so far, and a great figure. No tampos or paint running into the unpaintable plastic and suddenly stopping, no thin paint discolored by the black plastic of the forearms, reserved paint apps that bring out the details without overwhelming, and they fixed the forearm 5mm slots so the weapon halves can peg in under them again. Only thing wrong with mine is the ball joints for the feet seem to still have mold release fluid on them, making them too slick. I'll fix that tomorrow.

That's good to hear, the ports under the arms on Nightbeat and JP Gold Bumblebee are useless for posing without the use of blu-tac, so this guy should be a bit nicer to pose.

Perfect for my Neo G2 collection.

Don't tell me the only instructions to build the gas pump are just two pictures?

I got Lio Convoy today but I'm selling it to my friend since he's more into it. Not even opening the box, although I probably should now that I'm thinking about it. Really more into Nova Prime.

me too. I so wish Nova Prime was the club incentive figure instead of Lio

I think I'll be more into Lio. I've been liking the Beast Wars inspired figures, and the mold works for Nova Prime, but it's not perfect. Plus, the cat face on Lio in alt-mode is adorable.

There are not. There is just a picture of the final product fully built to draw reference from when building it. But, they later put full building instructions on YouTube:

Yeah, as Sabrblade said, there aren't any. And it's... kinda dumb they didn't have them. A YouTube video is not an adequate substitute.

And thanks for the video, Sabr.

Regardless of including instructions or not, the final build is not a very stable one. I had to ignore part of the official configuration in order to make the final build a more solid piece, at the cost of having Blackrock's control console for the cannon mode stick out further away from where Blackrock stands, but he can still reach it.

Growing up with more Lego than I ever should have had made that thing an easy build. Now I haven't had new Lego for over a decade, but that Kreo kit just feels so much cheaper than the Lego i do have - is this a normal thing?

I am not sure where I saw this, I think it was on Facebook somewhere. For those who want to make their Nova Prime a bit more different than Lio Convoy, you can take those arm bits off and make little wing bits. I am using my Lio Convoy to show this because I don't have Nova Prime at this time. You just detach the arm bits and put them on the opposite shoulder kinda wedging them on wheel hinge. They stay on surprisingly well.

Singaporean fansite Planet Iacon has uploaded in-hand images of Transformers Collectors' Club Subscription Service Tarantulas & Serpent O.R.! The demented spider is based off the Reveal the Shield Wreck-Gar mold, and more specifically the E-hobby retool Scrapheap which has only been released stateside once before as the Shattered Glass Botcon Exclusive Scrap Iron. Tarantulas is sporting his original (pre-Transmetal) deco primarily purple with yellow/green accents, but homages the Transmetal version with his two wheeled bike mode. Serpent O.R. is a repaint of Takara Generations TG-20 Ratbat (originally Generations Scourge) and is based on G.I Joe's Cobra Emperor Serpentor making him a rare dual franchise figure! See the images below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com: home for the best Galleries and Conversation around!

Tarantulas looks awesome!

Not sure about Serpent O.R., though... The in-hand pics make him out to be much brighter and less metallic than expected. At least there seems to be no risk of GPS.

I know that it would seem redundant seeing that Gens Senator Ratbat had the metallic plastic/paint, but Serpent, Oregon really need metallic pant, at least on the gold bits. It really looks like a horrible yellow, like armada hotshot/hulk hogan levels of yellow.

Pretty clever giving Serpent O.R. that alt mode. Looks almost like the air chariot the 80s G.I.Joe figure was packaged with the first time around.
