Is this a tease for the combined mode's head or am I just being dense at the end of a work week?

Im not sure exactly theyre "teasing" since the 4.0 figures have already been revealed over a month ago.

The real "mayhem" begins when the 4.0 pre-order site crashes 5 times and Brian sends out a barrage of apology e-mails for a week...

Im still pissed about the purposely missassembled Nacelle tailfins. Yo Brian give us 3.0 buyers a god damn $25 credit or something ! :evil:

They're teasing the sign up date (which is still unknown), not the figures.

I wouldn't get my hopes up. They didn't the last time they did a combiner (not necessarily the same, but still...), plus they like to keep their secret figures a 'secret' (leaks notwithstanding) so we might just have to wait for in hand images; but I do hope that they do reveal it, it would influence my decision.

The tampos on the tailfins were printed upside down. In attempt to conceal it they missassembled the tailfins on purpose. They are upside down and point downward in jet mode all for the sake of having the tampos pointed up properly instead of upside down. You have to crack the glue on the legs to fix it.

Unless your Nacelle has somehow spontaneously combusted your home or caused you to contract some heinous disease or something else like that I'd think you're overreacting to a rather minor imperfection that otherwise has no bearing on either the playability or functionality of the figure overall.

I didn't buy them at all, and maybe it is a stretch, but it's more the spirit of the matter, you pay, basically the price of a cheaper third party figure for a deluxe, the least they can do - as a company that makes these figures - is assemble and paint them correctly >:oP

The last combiner was membership figures spread over five years, so it's not only "not necessarily the same", it's not close enough to compare. And while I could be wrong, it's my understanding that the combiner is formed from the five already-revealed Decepticons, so showing it wouldn't really ruin any surprises.

Especially since the secret figure is a deluxe, so we know it's not going to be a supplementary figure like Groove/Blackjack/Powerglide.

Usually the registration period ends in october. Also, apparently if I read correctly, this year they are giving a 2 pay period option?

Hopefully they can give us some hi-res images of them and some alt mode pics.



Pretty please?

To understand the extent of the problem you must also own botcon thrust to see the correct way the tailfins are supposed to be assembled. When they are assembled upside down like nacelle was, the tailfins peg in slanting down in jet mode and it looks horrible. The people who assembled them put them upside down on purpose to make the tampo facing up properly as if it wasnt misprinted in an effort to hide it. They didnt realize the tailfins are not meant to be universal. Theres a right tailfin and a left tailfin. Now theyre backwards, upside down, and slanted in jet mode. If you want to fix them you have to crack the glue which holds the legs together which im a bit nervous to do. It doesnt matter how their mock up render has the fins. Its not what we got in hand. They f**ked up and I think thats worth a small bit of compensation out of brians pocket. I spoke with angie at TFCC and suggested the idea, but of course one complaint isnt gonna make it happen. They would have to get a barrage of nacelle complaints to seriously consider some form of reimbursement for 3.0 subscription buyers. Im shocked that a fandom known for being anal about even the slightest defect is just going to let this one slide. What happened to all the people who complained when SG drift got two right or left guns ? People bi**hed like hell and those were bonus parts that werent even supposed to come with that version of the mold. But here a figure thats legitimately screwed up and nobodys giving the club hell. :BANG_HEAD:

No offense buddy but youre wrong.

I guess people who dont own Botcon Thrust wont get it. Heres some comparison pics I took to explain the screw up…

As you can see in these images, the tampos were printed upside down before assembly. However the tampos were placed with the proper side facing up during assembly by putting the right tailfin on the left side of the jet and the left tailfin on the right side of the jet. This results in the tailfins pointing downward in jet mode. It also results in the larger portion of the tampo part of the tailfin being underneath instead of on top as it was meant to be with Thrust.

Whether this miss assembly was intentionally done by the factory workers to hide the tampo being printed upside down is unknown. Or maybe they’re just really, really stupid. Either way, there’s no excuse for this and buyers deserve some form of compensation. As I said earlier, my complaint alone isn’t going to be enough to sway them. If you got a misassembled Nacelle, give the club a call and voice your discontent. If they get enough complaints, maybe down the line we can get a store credit or a new set of legs properly assembled even if the tampo is upside down.

That's comparing them to Thrust. Compare them to the digital mock-up next; they weren't meant to mirror Thrust's exactly.
