It’s the end of an era.
Today, fans are receiving the final figures from Fun Publications, the former operators of the official Transformers convention and collectors club. Subscription Service 5 ends with the arrival of the last two releases, Counterpunch and Toxitron, who form the final two parts of a combiner named Wreckage along with Fractyl, Impactor, and Bluestreak. The pair are also accompanied by a bonus “mystery” figure, who uses a mold tooling not previously released in the US and also references a theme that has become synonymous with Fun Publications’ run on Transformers.
Read on after the break for the identity of the mystery character and some in-hand images care of TFW2005 member SeiberBirdR.
The bonus figure for Transformers Figure Subscription Service 5.0 is Combiner Wars Shattered Glass Starscream, using the Starscream head tooling of the Combiner Wars Skydive mold previously released in Japan as a part of the Grand Galvatron set. He is the second figure to bear the red and white “Jetfire” deco of Shattered Glass Starscream, the first being a part of the 2008 Shattered Glass set which formally kicked off the infamous mirror universe theme that Fun Publications revisited many more times with their exclusives.
