While waiting for the Seibertron gallery of the Transformers Club's Spinister, fellow Seibertronian Chuckdawg1999 has a video review for us. Spinister is a repaint of the Combiner Wars Alpha Bravo mold and is the 3rd figure for Thunder Mayhem to be released behind Grabuge (Ruckus) and Needlenose. You can also read the bio of this character here. Before we get to the review, here are some words from the bio's writer, Protoman:

Did a lot of fan wank writing for this one, mentioning his brief Dreamwave Armada comics appearance, his obscure Generations toy 2-pack and more. Nice to finally update a G1 character with a toy that does him justice.


The Generations Spinister referred to above is this figure.

Now onto the review!

Something made me change my mind about this and keep him, and I'm glad I did.

I'm getting a little frustrated with FunPub at the moment. I haven't gotten Ramjet yet and I'm keep leaving messages on the TCC website but no one is responding in the last week.

Have you tried calling them? Both Karen and Angie are nice and helpful.

Joe Con is in progress (June 16th-19th). No one's around for a few more days yet.

A lot of folks still haven't gotten Ramjet yet. It's early to start worrying.

That makes sense. Those are the two weeks they're out of pocket... Botcon & Joecon.

I'm one of the one's who has yet to receive their Ramjet, but I thought I'd ask around before worrying too much! The cutoff was in March if I do recall correctly? I wasn't sure so I figured I'd ask, how long are (were?) Memberships good for? I believe I signed up for TFSS 4.0 (+Membership) around end of August 2015, so I thought they were good for at least a year, I should be good right? I'd definitely like to get Skywarp and complete the set as best as possible as well, the head mold won't go perfectly but I imagine he'll look nice beside Armada Starscream and Takara Super Mode Starscream (AKA Thundercracker if I'm not wrong in calling him that!)

When they were about to start shipping, they said it would be one every three weeks, but for the first three figures it was one every two weeks. Maybe they went back to the three-week time frame they originally intended?

the delay might have been due to JoeCon. since it was last weekend and all. I'm kinda glad since it also means a delay in the last installment being due. hope we hear some news from the club on when to expect that last payment hitting

The next subscription figure should be coming in soon. I got mine today and surprise surprise it's windsweeper. I'm going to be honest this is the guy I was least excited for going into this but having him in hand he's really nice. There's a lot of paint on him and unlike ruckus there's no obvious blemishes. I would take pictures but I'm lazy.

Is there anything Windsweeper can actually do with the Matrix of Malice?

What is the hold up with putting Skywarp and the Almost Human figures up for order?

still quite curious what the surprise figure is. Hoping for Quake to complete the trio.
