Now, collectors can sign up, pay once, and a new figure will be sent to them every month. Tformers was curious about this new service that is taking orders for till September 10th and asked Pete Sinclair over at the Collectors' Club take some of questions. He has been gracious to Answers them and and even supplied us with another look at Ultra Mammoth and Optimus Primal in their Beast Modes! Read on the for Q&A on the TFSS.

Looks like I chose the right time to let my membership lapse. I renewed just after the cutoff for Sideburn from classics Hot Rod. (No interest in a single car brother homage.) So my latest membership expired just after I got Runamuck. I got to choose buying just Runabout/Over-Run.

 

Sorry TFC, I'm not paying $300 plus SIX separate shipping costs AND a "processing" fee for two toys I want and four I have to unload on my own. I'm sure this is keeping their costs down, but it wouldn't keep mine down.

 

I guess I should be thanking them for becoming so absurd that I HAVE to save money by not participating.

I enjoyed the club exclusive toys that were offered every year. If Ultra Mammoth and Breakdown were next year's club exclusive toys, I'd buy them. The club could have used Nemesis Prime as the "free" toy. I'm not getting a subscription, though. I'd rather spend my money on TFC's Project Uranos toys.

i'm getting the sub....but to chime in with the rest of you guys with something negative to say about it, i wish they would have offered a USPS first class shipping service considering i live 30 minutes away from their office/where the items ship from.

 

So you will be the last one to get each one then LOL

Too bad you just can not show up at their office and pick it up LOL

    • Studio Series Age of Extinction Galvatron Voyager figure.  Not perfect but so much better than the old 2014 shellformer!   
    • Look, I agree with you. The problem is not that he is buying stolen material/merchandise, which it is a problem, he knowingly engages in, it is that he keeps doing it, and that people keep viewing his content, knowing full well that they are watching stolen figures being represented to them.
    • Thnaks to TFND group who have posted a look at the last Transformers Wreck’n Rule release, G2 Leadfoot and Masterdominus. This completes the special exclusive Wreckers Hammer that a part of was included in each of the 5 releases. Read on to see the completed hammer now these sets are finally shipping out.

    • He definitely has an early prototype. But he just keeps going on as if this is 100% what we're going to get. How does he know? It's a factory test shot that was smuggled out of the factory before it was finished or had all of its accessories. It wouldn't be the first time he showed off things that were wrong. Wasn't Hubcap supposed to come with the small round silver cannon piece from Brunt? I mean, that's what his had right? Several of his were also missing stuff outright. So who is he trying to fool? We all know these are "stolen" copies. Yeah he might have purchased them which to him makes them legit but they were stolen nonetheless. Therefore you do did not get it legitimately. Just ask any Pawn show owner who purchased items they didn't know were stolen. I'm not trying to argue this point though, just that nothing about his copy means that it's what we should expect at retail. I think that the colors will be more uniform at retail. Or at least, from one piece to the other as seen on the roof that he pointed out. I also think that maybe they ran or assembled pieces from both tooling for this and that's why there's the two tabs on top of the van. Those might be pieces from the Ratchet version and were never meant for Ironhide. Also there's no way they can't or won't budget in the yellow stripe. If they managed to sell Earthrise Ironhide at deluxe then they can budget in that yellow stripe for SS86 Ironhide and maybe even another gun. But really though, Earthrise Ironhide himself should be a voyager due to that added roof. Siege Ironhide was large for a deluxe even if it was stretched out like Impactor was but then they put in the roof piece which added another 7 parts at least to the total as well as the additional paint that was required. Man that pelvic flap is a let down though. I will be modding mine to be separate pieces. There's more than enough connection parts to allow for that. I cut off the hood and the bumper piece from my Earthrise Arcee so cutting that skirt plate into three won't be much trouble. Just need a fresh single edged straight razor.
