    What a sad way to go, these look pretty bad.

    I tend to loathe new SG figures that can't repurposed as something recognizable, so initially hearing what the freebie was, I rolled my eyes.

    Upon seeing the deco, I immediately got a R-Blade vibe from it, so I'm now actually tempted to go after it at some point down the road. I would've much preferred something else more interesting to me had been the choice, but I do like that I have some leeway with this thing for my collection's purposes.

    Since I picked up two Victorions on super clearance on Amazon, one Dust-up will be getting a SG Decepticon symbol to become Nightbird.

    For the rest of you have received theirs... does the waist on Toxitron spin around for when you convert to Wreckage mode? I am wondering if mine is a one off and if I should bother trying to get him replaced.

    Toxitron looks way better then I think he should even with the tiny head.

    Unfortunately my Starscream's left shoulder won't properly peg in when you rotate it up into position for robot mode, and Counterpunch's wing the rear of his alt mode is super scuffed looking. Anyone else have these problems?

    You should definitely call/email about it.

    This may not make much of a difference to most, but this is a different SG Starscream. He is from the G1 Sunbow SG Universe. Yes, he is pretty much on a shelf by himself (unless another entity picks up the mythos) but it was important for the final figure to be tied to something that was such a major and successful part of the Con/Club offerings.

    The TFSS 5.0 and other con/club offerings, both produced and unproduced, will be discussed at length at Pete's Robot Convention in June!

    Let's see... SG Decepticon combiner could include this Starscream, Wheeljack as Slicer, Battle Core Optimus as Soundwave, Dust-up as Nightbird and... Just need one more...

    Mine is fine as well, I can also confirm the purple does not match the G2 Menasor purple and as such does look bad with that PE upgrade set.

    My Toxitron is okay too. Sorry for your messed up waist. :( 

    I'm super happy with these guys. I was at first a little disappointed with Shattered Glass Starscream when I saw the initial pictures. I don't know what I was expecting, but I was hoping for something big. Now that I have him in hand, I think he's really awesome. He's a good pick and a fitting final figure for the club. I just wish it didn't have to end. I would have loved if we could have gotten a full Shattered Glass combiner. Poor Starscream, he's going to be hanging out by himself.

    Now I want the SG Starscream figure despite hating it initially. I hope someone like Renderform or something makes a new head and weapons for the mold to convert to R-Blade.

    Got the set. Feels a bit anti-climatic... the pretender's should have been the finisher, go out on a high note. Maybe I am in the minority, but the SG Starscream doesn't do it for me. Couldn't say who I "hoped" it would be, I usually enjoy surprises.

    I will say, that the Starscream head is one of the best looking heads in the CW deluxe range and it's not like R-Blade has to look the same as the G2 toy recolor.

    Good point, tho it would still be nice just so he wouldn't have a Starscream head.

    Got my set today, certainly bittersweet to get to the finish line. Some quick pics:

    Counterpunch flanked by two of the previous Punch/Counterpunches from the TFCC (with shapeways heads, hands and g1 styled weapons):

    Super glad to get Toxitron, always love to get figures of unreleased toys (Botcon 2011 animated version didn't work for my classics shelf).
    [​IMG]

    I gave him a gun from an old Toybiz Marvel Hulk figure, needs modification to work with him as the handle is not 5mm and the backpack doesn't tab in but looks like something that would go well with him, a weapon that spews out radioactive waste:

    Like some of you guys I'll be using SG Starscream as an updated R-Blade. He has a gun from an oversized KO Robotmasters R-Blade (should be completely chromed for toy accuracy). I thought it was appropriate to show the last ever club exclusive figure with one of their very first, Botcon 2005 Ricochet who of course was one of the repaints (along with the original R-Blade) of the G2 Jetfire mold.
