Only 600? Can you name 1 other independent toy company that could get that sort of commitment from their fans? Paid up front, original non-affiliated character, no early reviews... I can't think of one.
So yes props worthy indeed.
Definitely props worthy. Especially considering some 3rd party groups have a hard time having various retailers taking a combined stock of 500 units over the initial month when preorder goes up.
I believe the original context of the 600 orders comment was specifically regarding the fact that their website/servers didn't crash (like the official Transformers Collectors' Club's website did earlier this year and has several times in the past when their exclusives go live) because that volume (600 in 3 days) is by far lower than the number of orders processed once ordering for the Club Exclusives (Runamuck and Runabout this year) goes live, so in that context, no, it is definitely not props-worthy.
However, I will definitely agree that aside from that context, and by itself, that a third party company with exclusively internet based advertising for their club and toys is definitely impressive and a great start for their exclusive service.
