    Well here is what I am thinking, there were G I joe FSS on the current boat (I am thinking with the FSS transformers) that boat went out after the Chinese new year and was held up by customs. So now we (GI Joe) are getting #4 shipped as we have not gotten #2 yet. Not to worried we will get them just delayed again.

    An update!!! I emailed funpub and got this response.

    "Yes, our shipment is arriving this week. We will start shipping product as soon as we can. The TF FSS 5.0 should begin shipping sometime next week roughly. Thank you.

    Angie"

    FINALLY!!

    I hope the first two figures are Toxitron and Fractyl or Counterpunch so I can at least make another complete combiner.. I didn't think we'd see these before Baldigus, but it may be close!

    Excellent. Wonder if they'll do one of the Pretenders first, or if they'll be saved for the middle. I have to imagine the last shipment will be Megatron and Toxitron, given one's the combiner torso and the other is using the hard-to-get Grand Max Pretender mold.

    Cool - just got an update from the Club. On a personal note, as someone moving in early June, I'm really hoping we get everything out by early May like it appears

    "Believe it or not the container is FINALLY here!

    We will be preparing your first of three shipments this week so we need you to log in and verify your address on file by 5 pm on Tuesday March 14.

    We have packed this final version in sets of two so you will only receive 3 shipments instead of 6.

    Also for those of you on the installment payment plan, the billing dates will be April 3rd and May 1st. Please make sure your CC on file is current and correct."

    Really hoping for Toxitron and CP in the first wave. One voyager (Toxitron + each Pretender) for each shipment makes some sense

    My desire and want for them has all but dissipated. In fact, If Megatron and Counterpunch are the first two, I may not even pay for the rest. Guess we'll find out soon... Hopefully they ship by Friday so we know.

    I was originally going to try to get a Toxitron, but the new Laser Prime mold just would make it feel wrong, like Toxitron should have been made from that mold. I know why it didn't happen, but I'm not sure if I could excuse it. Though finally having a CHUG Toxitron is worth it I guess.

    Beyond that I want Counterpunch, and whoever the final figure is. If it's Sunstorm from Thrust them I'm 120% getting it off evay the first chance I get.

    Man, I had almost forgotten about these. I'm happy that they are finally here, but it was definitely a long period of time between updates. I look forward to getting them in hand.

    There's an appeal for the pretenders that I haven't developed an appreciation for, and I was wondering you guys could elaborate. Otherwise, I might sell mine.

    For me, they're something we probably won't see from Hasbro, maybe ever again (Pretenders w/articulated shells - Pretenders could see a comeback in some slightly altered form).

    It didn't happen because the Titans Returns molds weren't available to them yet. This is what Hasbro allowed them to move forward with. Titans Return stuff wouldn't have been available until this (not) upcoming Botcon and Sub 7.0.

    It'll be exciting to get the Wreckers...I'm the least exciting for the Pretenders...

    Guess it'll be time soon to start scoping out sales threads in Junkion & seeing if anyone's selling the newest figures when they drop cheaper than the four I have preordered at Big Bad.

    I wrote in my post that I knew why it didn't happen. I know the club only have access to molds Hasbro isn't currently using. My point was that I couldn't except a Toxitron from a mold that doesn't fit him when there is a better and more fitting mold that exists.

    Granted, I suppose if you wanted to argue. The Botcon animated figure is the only official Toxitron figure ever released, so this version from Motormaster technically is more fitting, from an official point of view.

    I've kinda had a fascination with the concept for awhile, my first introduction being through reading the Marvel books rather than the toys. Kinda hard to put my finger on what I love about it.
