    2) THS-02 Hybrid Style Convoy & iGear IG-TF004A Masterpiece "Big" Trailer - Proerders Up!
    ===============================================================
    One of the more popular series to receive acclaim was the THS or Hybrid Style series. This series features a scaled down more articulated series of Transformers, and although it looked to be a success it has not seen a release for some time. That being said the Hybrid Style Convoy is now once again available for preorder, seeing its rerelease with a November release date! This piece includes interchangeable hands, a trailer with repair bay, matrix of leadership and more!

    Also now available for preorder, is the next iGear project, iGear IG-TF004A & B Masterpiece "Big" Trailer! Available in two color schemes, first the original colors and second the black trailer which is more remiscent of the G2 color scheme. These trailers feature a full size roller figure, and are great display pieces that will complement your Masterpiece Collection.

    After much a-do, the highly anticipated Superion Aerialbot Add-on Kit from Fansproject is now instock!

    We've already started getting these ready to ship out, and will start shipping out immediately. The good news is looking at the set, it's definitely worth the wait! Great display packaging complements this already stellar piece, and if you haven't ordered yet, now's the time!

    We also know this one was significantly delayed, and we are working to ensure that TFsource receives goods from Fansproject on all future releases in a more timely manner, and they have given their word that this type of delay won't happen again. The G3 Trailer is already on its way as well, so if you haven't preordered it yet, combine ship both and save on shipping!

    8) SDCC San Diego Comicon 2009 - Transformers Exclusives!
    ===============================================================
    Another year, another great San Diego Comicon! TFsource was fortunate enough to get a limited amount of two of the hottest SDCC Exclusives this year! SDCC Soundwave & Cassettes Set could be the most impressive Soundwave reissue yet, as he includes Ratbat, Ravage, Laserbeak and Buzzsaw all in amazing collectible packaging! Next is the Transformers Animated Megatron Bust! 6" tall and highly detailed, this piece brings the animated Megs we all know and love to life! Each piece is a set of comicon history, and we don't have many pieces to go around, and it is not known if we'll be able to get more in the future so have at them while they last! Both scheduled to arrive in early August.

    9) New MP-08X Masterpiece "King" Grimlock - Special Edition Figure
    ===============================================================
    Now up for Preorder! MP-08X Masterpiece "King" Grimlock is a special edition figure released in limited numbers, and features bells and whistles not found on the normal MP-08 release. He includes a crown, sword and gun with different paint applications. His coloration of the main figure also is done more to match the US Comic version of Grimlock, and will also come in custom collectible packaging paying homage to the US comic series as shown! Keep in mind this is not a mainstream release, and is not available directly through Takara/Tomy and is priced based on this, so it will likely be a very limited edition release. Bring on late night with the "King"!

    Order two, and save $10 on each, it is Win-win-win. I still need Magnus, so I don't know how high it is on my list, but I will probably end up pulling the trigger at some point.

    G3 Trailer is calling my name right now though, just gotta figure out who gets my order on that one. Since I missed the preorder period, it will probably be a couple weeks before it ships for me.

    Yes G3 Trailer is here! Thanks TFSource!

    The Masterpiece Black Convoy/Nemesis Prime and Black Trailer will have to wait for a while.

    So is he Black Convoy or Nemesis Prime? If I remember correctly, Black Convoy/OP had blue eyes with the Autobot Faction symbol. Nemesis Prime had red eyes with a Decepticon Faction Symbol.

    That appendage set is great For Superion, but I don't own superion (Not really looking to either) what I'd love is a purple appendage set for Energon Devastator!

    Not mentioned in the newsletter, and the site still has them up as a pre-order, but I just received Encore #17 Cassette Volume 2 from TFSource in the mail today. Blazing fast shipping on those!

    We're just sold out of the Encore #17, but put them back up for preorder since we have a third wave now shipping that will arrive by the end of the month... really popular set so if you haven't picked one up yet it's definitely one not to miss. A great cassette offering, not to mention Ratbat! Who doesn't want a Ratbat...?
