    I'm kind of hoping it's another female - Moonracer from Chromia, Elita One from Arcee, something like that. Although I suppose they'd have said "never before released head" instead of "never used in the US" for something like that.

    They'll all be ebayed for $1000.00 each if they don't re-open the ordering process and only honor the orders that made it through so far.

    Anyone else having problems with ordering? When I log in to sign up, it tells me the subscription period has expired. :p 

    *edit* Never mind; I read back and saw others are too. Carry on!

    Fun Pub should trademark a cute little name for these untimely snafus. 1st day of FSS 5.0, the 1st day of their store at BotCon (2016, card machines), a number of BotCon pre-registrations over the years.

    I went to it from the link in the email. I had no problems signing in, but I didn't go through the order process at all...

    IIRC they said at the Botcon panel that Toxitron has new heads for both modes.

    Cool thx, this is looking way more attractive now, still I'll probably wait till they reveal more like 4.0, and order at last minute lol.

    More like the entire rainbow colored bunch dancing through every wire, drive, circuit, node, and memory unit they've got.

    No, no - I meant the entire 4.0 set. See, they're shipping every 3 weeks, right? So when does the set finish?

    Assuming everything ships on-time (big IF): we're looking at the last fig being sent around the 3rd week of August, right? If the math is correct, it takes around 4 months to send out all figs?

    So if the 4.0 set finishes in Aug, and we have until Jan 1 to send out 5.0.... do you guys realize that's a pretty tight finish line, given these toys are prone to factory delays? In other words, I'm thinking it's entirely possible some toys don't make it to the finish line, and we're looking at a complex partial refund scenario! :eek:  I'm not wishing ill will on FunPub or anyone interested (heck, I'M interested here!): I'm simply pointing out some logistical concerns as to how they can finish 2 Sub services by year's end.... :confused2 :

    Maybe they have a second factory contracted to simultaneously produce and send out both sub services together on some months??? :confused:  I think I'd feel better if I had some assurance that they are planning to run both Sub Services together, rather than start 5.0 when 4 finishes. I just don't know! :eek: 

    EDIT: Y'know, despite the issues and insane time frame, I'm still on board. :D  This set just looks dynamite - especially that cool orange paint splash on Toxitron (nice touch :thumb ). Just hope the probs get ironed out soon.

    Ordered the TFSS for the 5th and sadly most likely last time. I wonder if Fun Pub had known when they were first deleloping the TFSS 5.0 that 2016 would be the end if they would have opted for the TFSS 5.0 to be an updated Nexus Prime redo with CW molds? It would have been a nice touch IMHO. The last TFCC freebie is an update on the villian from the first years magazine comics, Ramjet. The last sub services could have been an update to all five of the TFCC freebies.

    I cant find the link to place my order, it says that the subscription service period has expired, is this some kind of glitch because I have searched all over the page and there is no where for me to make an order? I have followed the link from the email as well as from Facebook and yeah, still nothing.

    It would be cool if Toxitron got an add on kit from Beelzeboss or S.N.D

    The only change I dislike is Toxitron having that dumb symbol in the middle of his chest. When has he been aligned with Autobots? I don't even care so much that he is or isn't an Autobot, I just don't like that it can't be ingored on him. I would have given him a Decepticon or a Wrecker symbol under each flap on the arms. They'd be visible in vehicle mode only then. Under the flip over head bit even. Super bummed about that. He was my most anticipated of them all.

    How is that a "big IF"? They already have all of the 4.0 figures in their warehouse. They all ship together from overseas. There won't be any problems with 4.0 shipping on-time.
