Transformers Collectors Club Subscription Service Year 2 Treadshot First Look

The Official Transformers Collectors Club have updated the exclusives part of their website. In addition to showing off next year's membership freebie there is a placeholder graphic for the second year of the Transformers Subscription Service. The placeholder shows the head of Treadshot, who is a redeco of Generations Warpath. While he shares Warpath's head, the paint deco visible in this small image shows the Collectors Club has carefully recreated the look of Action Master Treadshot's head.

Check out the Collector's Club Exclusives page to learn more.

The Warpath head is a bit of a stretch compared to Treadshot's original, but it doesn't look too bad. I'm most interested to see how the Chromedome-from-TFP-Wheeljack turns out.

Am I the only one thinking the RiD Vehicon mold would have worked better for Chromedome (especially if they're going for MTMTE Domey)?

I actually think the head works pretty darn well. It's round, like Treadshot's, it has a faceplate like Treadshot. The only significant difference is that it has eyes instead of a visor.

I'm really looking forward to this guy. It's the perfect repaint for Warpath, even more so than Gutcruncher or Treds.

Doesn't work for me.

For a moment I thought I saw tardsh*t there
Shatterblast
I love that this is being made, now I just hope some 3rd party group decides to make a G1 styled head for him.
Sideways markII
Hopefully we will see the other five soon. So far the only new head we know of is Chromedome.

Yeah, Treads, or Beast Machines Tankor are the best options for Warpath redecoes.
Personally i'd rather see Gutcruncher wearing the Generations Blitzwing body. Dude had a tank mode once upon a time, and his action master toy came with a jet


(Btw Pete, if you're reading this, feel free to use my idea. I don't care about compensation, hell i don't even want credit, i just wanna see it happen)
BScorpinok75
not my thing, i'd prefer gutcruncher or even treds to finally be done from good ole warpath but i guess with this there still a chance slim or whatever of a retail redeco of warpath that could be either gutcruncher or treds.
barrelks
I like it. Probably won't join the sub service for it, but I will pick it up. Those Prime Retools/recolors actually look pretty damn good, but with all the Takara only stuff, I have given up on being a Prime completionist (and that is where they would go in my collection).
Sy-Rein
Was there anything posted about any of the rest of the TFSS 2.0 figures at Botcon or SDCC?
*edit: nm, I found the post from Botcon revealing 3 of the 6 figures (names and molds, not pics). I guess the other 3 haven't been revealed.

I'm quite curious what they're planning for this next set of figures.

The one shown looks kind of cool but not really familiar with the character.
Thundershot
Treadshot looks nice so far.

Gutcruncher from Blitzwing would be an awesome nod to everything about him! The club couldn't do Doubledealer as planned... Maybe they can do that instead?

I'm still hoping to see Waspinator from Botcon Thundercracker/Skywarp and BW Silverbolt from BH Dreadwing.

Considering that there will be two retail Waspinators soon, I doubt there will be a TFCC one, too.

With a new body sometimes comes a new face. We've had less accurate exclusive toys that have been repainted straight without a remold from toys they have no previous relation to.

Both retail Waspinators represent his beast mode. A TFCC one would represent his Cybertronian mode.
StayingInTheBox
I'm assuming it's based off of this?

A black Warpath redeco with red and grey highlights sounds good. A new head would have been great.

But then one of the other toys who did get a new head wouldn't have gotten their new head.

Its about priorities. Warpath's head works well for Treadshot even though its not completely accurate to his original toy.

I got that, I just don't see TFCC doing a third Waspinator, considering they weren't allowed to do Doubledealer because Hasbro had plans for a retail version.

Wish he'd gotten a new head, but it's pretty good. Mold choice looks amazing though. Can't go wrong with using it again.

Hoping for a Gutcruncher for the Hasbro main line. Crossing fingers.

Come on Hasbro. It's a green tank. No brainer. Kids will buy that.
Autovolt 127
He looks rad. It's hilarious in hindsight since people thought BotCon SG Treadshot would have been out of this mold.
Grimlock_13
It works ok but I'd rather have Gutcruncher or Treads.

Wasn't that one of the Botcon exclusives in 2006? I'm pretty sure it was.

Edit: Yep. http://www.tfu.info/2006/Predacon/BC...waspinator.htm

Don't have any interest in this at all.

That's the point.
MechaV
Show me that Chromedome FunPub.
Optimus Prime
New head would've sold me on this one; Treadshot was my favorite Action Master (though I never owned one, oddly enough). Pass for now, unless I can get one "cheap."
cbff
Only figure I want from this set. Will buy it individually.
SG Roadbuster
I think the formula for TFCC FSS is thus:
Action Master: First run gave us Circuit, this time we get Treadshot
Combiner: First run gave us Breakdown in non Combiner form, this year we get Ironfist, part of a Combiner
Questionable Placement due to use of Prime Mold: First run gave us Slipstream who could sorta be used in a classics or Prime shelf, this year we get Chromedome

RID: First run gave us Scourge, nothing revealed thus far for this year
Animated: First run gave us Jackpot, nothing revealed yet this year
Beast Era: first run gave us Ultra Magnus, nothing revealed this year

also we haven't seen who's gonna be the voyager or ultra yet

It was because TFCC were going to make Doubledealer out of the Blitzwing mold as well. Waspinator would be totally different.

Wait a bit more. The club still have three figures to reveal.

By now, Chromedome is in the maybe list. If I like the other three I'll got the subscription; 3.5 of 6 is a good enough number.

Yeah! If they do an Animated toy I need to buy it If it was the only toy from TFSS 2.0 that I like, I would buy it alone from BBTS or other online reseller.
gothsaurus
Honestly, I'd be happy for the remaining ones if they cranked out the background characters from the Botcon comic. Hauler, Redwing, and Clamp Down.

Other cool ideas I had (that haven't already been discussed to death like Detritus, RID X-Brawn or Animated Wasp, etc.) FOC Grim as G2 Grimlock... or Shattered Glass classics characters from the new wave of Generations. SG Springer, Trailbreaker, or Hoist. (maybe in Diaclone deco)

All that said, I'd still REAAAAALY love a Machine Wars Prowl and a Skid-Z out of that Mirage mold while it's still handy.
Thundershot
How about Rung (with new head) from Animated Prowl?
netkid
How about this for the big figure slot?

Yup. Still waiting for this one to come true.
CodeXCDM
Well... Protoform X, Transmutate, Treadshot, and the announced Chrome Dome aren't of interest to me... so definitely not going the sub route this year.
Digilaut
Treadshot looks okay, I guess. There will always be figures that don't get remolded heads and end up a bit less cool. I'm sure it will please people.

To me that
s the onyl way i can see Rung getting a toy, with an alt.mode like TFA Prowl.
Thundershot
It would also be one of the few ways an Animated toy will fit in with Classics.

Protoform X and Transmutate aren't part of the sub service. The only 3 announced so far as Chrome, Treadshot, and Ironfist.
CodeXCDM
^ Well neither sub nor membership rather. Not interested in the freebie... and the comics/magazine is... eh soso.
