We received news from the Transformers Collectors' Club that their software update is now complete, and if you have been a member at any point since 2012, you should now have access to the store and the Figure Subscription Service 5.0 (as seen during BotCon 2016). Read more below, and head here to sign up!

This is going out to all current members and former members back to 2012.
We have now changed the software so that members who have been in the system since the spring 2012 conversion can order from the store or FSS 5.0. This also includes all members who have recently expired or have expired since 2012. If you have forgotten your password, you can go to the Club Store and retrieve it under the My Account Section.

To order FSS 5.0 you can click here.

FSS 5.0 is the final subscription offering from the Transformers Collectors' Club. The subscription period ends on May 26 at midnight. If you want to get this final offering, please do not wait until the last minute. These figures will ship in the fall.

I just thought we were discussing personal preferences for collections/where we'd like to see the fiction go etc. Was just a bit surprised to see a stance of one take on Toxi' being straight-up wrong in a tweet to producers of the char., is all.

If we join this, does it mean we'll be eligible for the MP Ratbat and Megatron that they're doing with GIJoe?

How can we get those two figures?

Joining the TFSS will have no bearing on your ability to get MP Rabat and Megatron with the Joes. That said, I believe that those will similarly be available to all members (or former members since 2012).

Of course, the question of when those will be made available is still very much an open question. Seems to me they're running out of time.

If I don't make the deadline, how rough a ride can I expect finding these on the secondary market, in terms of how much they might cost and how hard they'll be to get?

My best response to this is to suggest checking out the prices currently at BigBadToyStore. They offer suggested prices, and you'll see that some of the preorders are already sold out. While its possible they may order more,it should still give an idea of how difficult and expensive some of these toys will become down the road.

Thanks to the Collectors Club itself, we have word that the final Figure Subscription Service has been extended until this Friday at 11pm. We have mirrored the message below for all to read. As you may remember, we have mentioned before that the Subscription is open to all previous members, so if you are included in that list, order up!

The Transformers Figure Subscription Service (TFSS) 5.0 order period has been extended until Friday at 11PM central time.

You can order your TFSS 5.0 until then. Please note, there is no limit on the number of subscriptions you can purchase as the TFSS is built to order.

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! This is it! The last Transformers FSS! Don't miss it.

Read the prose so toxitron is a reception and put an Autobots symbol on him in order to gain access to autobot bases. Pretty cool idea.

the @The_TF_Club twitter page put up a new image suggesting members of sub 5.0 are meant to combine with Alpha Bravo and Offroad. wonder what this amalgamation of bots and cons will be named

Its name is Wreckage.

Alpha Bravo and Offroad are included in the group on the off chance that someone is getting the TFSS 5.0 but didn't get the 4.0 with Impactor and the mystery figure to complete the intended final combination for Wreckage, giving those who missed out another option with two retail figures that they might already own.

While I certainly appreciate options, I don't see how that would work, since Impactor is 4.0 while Counterpunch and Toxitron are 5.0....

If someone gets 5.0 but not 4.0, then they'd be missing Impactor and the 4.0 mystery figure. AB and Offroad's inclusion allows any 5.0 consumers to use them in place of the two missing 4.0 limbs.

I get that, but that would still be a combination that, apparently, would never appear in the fiction. Why not use any other two CW figs lying around?

Because they're technically 'taken' by G1 nostalgia or lore or something like that - they're free agents, it's scramble-city, swap whom you want where you want them ;)

Because... Alpha Bravo and Offroad have the least amount of characterisation so far and thus are perfect for FunPub's clay modeling practices?
