Any Canuckle Heads going to sign up for a sub? Looks like it'll be around $600 Can for a single sub. The first two previews are up. Kinda lackluster to me.

Saw the pic of Dusty and was impressed.  Also cool to see Crystal Ball finally getting some modern love.

Sadly I won't be getting a subscription.

Having trouble guessing the parts for Crystal Ball. What vest even?

I figure a new head and vest while everything else is a reuse.  Although there could be some vests from winter themed figures to use.

Saw the CC Arctic figure, and not that impressed.  I would have preferred they went with the more cartoon accurate dark grey and shorter coat.

Agree with your comments on CC.

Looks like there will be a new head for CB but not a new vest. I can only guess it'll either be POC Zartan hoody or FSS frostbite vest. Maybe Snow Serpent fur? *Edit* had it pointed out that the Gnaw vest would be the likely candidate>

Lots of comments on the dusty paint and build on the club site.

If I could afford it, I'd be in for this set. Only FSS series I ever signed up for was the one with Bomb Strike. Unfortunately due to the delays on it being shipped, which delayed when they took the payment, the last payment unfortunately ended up being when we needed the money due to the birth of our 3rd son. As an unfortunate side effect, it soured my wife's attitude towards the Collector's Club and the FSS. Unfortunately I haven't been a member since and am trying to talk her into letting me join back up for the Rock & Roll membership figure since his V2 figure is and has been for as long as I can remember my favorite figure.

Not overly impressed. Stalker looks fine but not enough to sway me into dropping $600. wouldn't have minded getting Tomax and Crystal Ball though.

I love the fact they're using the UK name for Skidmark.

Have to say they did a great job on Crystal Ball.  Only nitpick I have is his facial expression.  Looks a little goofy/off, to me, but not so much as to affect the overall quality of the figure.

Didn't realize that he had a different code name for the UK release until I researched a little. There's a few more figures that had different code names as well. Funny how the US fans totally ignore this detail. So that makes two international releases this FSS then.

He's the only one I ordered. I'm hoping his head looks better in hand, looks kinda cartoony to me and I'd like to see the bottom right leg changed to match the bottom left, but yeah, he turned out pretty good.

I think Hasbro UK realised there was no way in hell they could sell the Desert Fox with a driver with that name. Amusingly, though, his name was never changed in the reprints of the GI Joe comics in Transformers.
