Questions about TFCC Membership

Motto: "For I have dipped my hands in muddied waters, and, withdrawing them, find 'tis better to be a commander than a common man!"
Weapon: Dark Saber Sword
All in the title. I enrolled into the Club for the first time ever a couple days ago. I really don't know much about the membership benefits, other than the incentive figure and magazine issues being shipped out once every two months. In other words, I need the lowdown: what other shenanigans should I know about? Does the next issue ship out next month, in April? Does the figure start shipping/arriving around May/June?

In the words of Va'al, I'm a rookie.

Weapon: Twin Photon Blasters
You should get the figure when it's scheduled to be shipped out, which should be on the page. You do get the comic every other month, and since you signed up in March, the 1st issue you get should be in 2 or 3 months. I am not sure if it's March/April or April/May. If it's March/April, you're too late for that one. Also, the other advantage to the membership is that it will give you a $40-50 discount on your BotCon package, if you decide to go or buy an Iacon package. I haven't been a member in 2 years, so I don't remember anything else. I'm sure there are a few more things. :)

Weapon: Battle Blades
Tangible Membership benefits:

- Free, Exclusive Figure
- Magazine every now and then. It arrives very randomly. It is also short, but it's a fun way to kill 15 minutes when you get home from work here and there.

Potential Membership benefits, in other words, you may never use them but they're there:
- Discounts at the Club Store.
- Access to Member exclusives, in this case you'll have access to buy Transmutate this year.
- Access to the Figure Subscription Service
- Discounts on Botcon Packages (Primus Package discount = cost of year's club membership)

"Benefits":
- Club website and forums.
Listen to me ramble about robots on the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast.
Every once in a blue moon I write stuff about things on my blog.
I have a lot of Transformers, check them out on my shmax.com page.
Looking for Micromaster Spinner, rare Minicons and Star Saber's Rifle. PM me if you have these for sale!

I also recently renewed my member ship.
not sure if this is a benefit but it looks like they do let you remove your credit card information from their site now (it is automatically stored if you used a CC to pay for the subscription).

which is the first thing I did after I signed up. (I suggest you do the same just in case)
Looking for:
FP Insecticons
Botcon Redux Spark (Pyro)

for Trade:
MISB FE Arcee
MISB RTS G2 Laser Prime
MISB Generation WFC Megatron

You also get free access to the online text stories, which WILL be returning once that part of the site gets relaunched.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
