    That's what I'm assuming, but I think this is the first official image, right?

    First I've seen it but I pay TFCC news no mind so I could have missed it.

    I'm assuming they're going to have access to the subscription figures as well...

    Speaking of which, when do we find out what those of us in the club get out of this collaboration?

    Yes, that IS a good question. Just what are the Club members getting out of this collaboration?

    Why does this look like something I should recognize but it just isn't entering my mind's grasp?

    The center word is "宿敵", means "Rival" or "Nemesis" in Japanese.
    and bottom words means "Soon the wirepuller will return...".

    I am totally adding "Die Son, Get Off" to my normal everyday speech.

    Another term for "wirepuller" would be "puppet master". Might be a tease for Scourge / Nemesis Prime, given he was Scourge in Armada over there and his appearance was in the episode known on both sides of the Pacific as "Puppet"?

    Hmm, gratuitous German, that I can do something with. According to an online translation it means something like "Soon the sun is going to rise"

    Sounds like a fancy way of announcing something will open. Snakas had a bit on this on his blog and he said this (online translation so the wording might be a bit off)

    In the e-mail magazine of e-HOBBY SHOP, previous notice was given of the Club limited product with TCC was open to the public.

    It is scheduled to be open to the public in the e-mail magazine in the end of August though information has not come out except this image now.



    Sounds to me like this whole thing is just teasing for the main thing opening next week sometime, whatever it is. If Snakas doesn't know then the information is probably not out there yet.

    The translation of the German part is simply: "The sun is coming up", or "the sun is rising".
    A hint at eHobby exclusive MP11s Sunstorm?

    Yeah, the Japanese is a pretty clear hint at Scourge. The kanji there actually has,"black" in it, so it's probably a pun.

    Not sure about the sun comment... Anyone else from the sub service make sense for that comment?

    There's definitely attention to the sun.. The TFCC getting Sunstorm seems the most logical conclusion... The question is.. Will it be cheaper than what the online stores are selling it for?

    As nice as it would be for TFCC to make available MP Sunstorm to areas outside of the normal e-Hobby distros, why would that announcement be made in Japan where the population could just buy him from eHobby? I'd think that sort of announcement should be made by the TFCC to address the bulk of their members who normally cant order direct from eHobby. I'm leaning more towards the subscription service being made available through eHobby.

    If it is Scourge, that would be awesome!
