If you only want 2 or 3 figures... find a friend who wants the opposite ones. Seem like everyone wants different figures.

I actually may buy an extra set and part them out to people who just want one or two figures. Hmmm. :-?

That seems to be underlying problem, as the whole set has something for everyone. We may need a thread for future trades in the Bazaar :P
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Out of all of these, I only *really* want Slipstream (Fembot!!) and Breakdown. The others are only somewhat interesting.

As far as the remaining figures go, none of them strike me enough to want to keep them. I'll probably just sell them at cost to anyone who wants them.

Okay.. thought they would be a little cheaper if they weren't supposed to be coming in the fancy boxes.

next stupid question:

if you pay for the figures, and your membership runs out during the delivery period, and you don't renew, do you forfeit the remainder of the figures?

It said no limits on the number of figures purchases, that means people with subscriptions may purchase extras for other non-subscription members if they wish unless I read something wrong.

wow, it is a bit vague. hearing horror stories from people this side of the atlantic about the club's shipping, I'm going to pass. Scourge is the only one I really want there, but a couple of the other ones do look pretty cool.

Oh and remember "Don't go online and tell people what you got!"


That's really silly. I appreciate the sentiment, but there's no way it's not going to get spoiled by someone in the first batch of deliveries.

Pricier than I was hoping. And how is this so expensive? There is no packaging, pieces are made to order, it should be closer to $200 and free US shipping. Also, why not just roll the price of the credit card transaction into the their prices? It's a mandatory fee, just state the price is $285 or $97. Also, for people on a budget "sometime" in a two month window is not cool.

Now I know why this wasn't brought up at Botcon.

Edit: Will trade sealed United Stepper for Slipstream and Breakdown. PM me.

I'm down for a set, but I feel for those who may not be able to afford/justify the total amount for select figures.

It is a shame that the made to order aspect seems directed towards the entire package and not just individual figures. Perhaps that can be reviewed at some point down the line.

I think that's the key to this even being viable (from a business standpoint) is being able to have the commitment of all the people buying ALL the figures... that assures that it's simplified ordering, shipping and record keeping...] instead of having different numbers for each figure, and a staff keeping track of who ordered how many of what.

As it is, you only have one list and one quantity... and it's a quantity that's high enough to be realistic approaching a factory to manufacture... and to still have it affordable to us... and leave them making a little money, too.

Sadly, you break that formula, and it's no longer good for ANY party in the equation.

A subscription party is about the only option for seeing these fan favorites like Scourge, Slipstream, Beast Wars characters...

As much as I was hyped about some of these figures before, this blind release policy and the over all cost are really putting a crimp into this whole thing. These aren't Kreons. For $90+ a pair, I'd like to know what I'm getting. I may have to pass on the whole thing.

If it makes anyone feel better, when ordering some of the more popular joes individually from an online website you Pay $45 plus shipping (quarrel, claw, cover girl).

So a TF for $50, compared to a 3 3/4 inch joe doesn't sound so bad.

If they allowed you to order only those you wanted, they know there would be some that would hardly sell. Thus, you have to buy the whole shebang to keep prices lower.

You should expect to pay significantly more for Scourge, Breakdown, and Slipstream when buying on eBay, I would imagine.

Just got another email from the club and they are correcting a typo from the earlier email.

Hello all you Transformers Fans! #2

Just a resend to correct a typo on #5 below. It had a sentence left over from the GI Joe version of the FSS. Below is now correct. One figure ships a month for six months., there are no pairings. Their program has 2 figures a month for six months. Nobody caught the left over sentence.

Have a great weekend!

Brian

The FSS will go live today. You can check the club site later for the url. Thanks for your patience while we got this finished. The system is very simple from the user perspective. The complicated part is the part you don't see as we have to be able to installment bill, change shipping docs, change cc info, etc. The admin side is VERY complicated.

I hope that the information below will answer most of your questions. If you have more, use the link at the club or registration site and we will answer and post them at the FAQ.

Someone has already asked about the shipping. This is figured for where you live, but to give you an idea from TX to NY for one sub is about $59 total for all six shipments which breaks down to just under $10 per shipment. The insurance would be $21 total for the entire sub (not per shipment). This is via Priority Mail. Fedex is slightly lower.

For those who are overseas or Canadian, you can choose First Class International if you order only 1-2 subs. Over that amount pushes past the 4 lb limit and this option goes away. However be aware about the insurance (same $21) as if you don't take it, we cannot be responsible for mis-delivered or damaged items).

Example International rates for one sub:

Canadian rates for International 1st class from TX to AB is under $11 per shipment or under $66 total.

TX to the UK is under $20 per shipment (under $120 total) using International 1st Class.

Thanks again for your support and patience!

Brian

They really should clarify the shipping process and charging. Because it sounds like its going to be the most expensive part of the deal.

Other than that, While I may not have to have ever single figure there, There are quire a few I like.

So I could consider the subscription if the shipping made sense. Don't want to have to end up paying 80 or 100 dollars more for shipping when all is said and done.

Perhaps BBTS and TfSource will have individual sales for the figures, and you could even use the POL from BBTS to combine them all at the end of the subscription. With that said, the payment plan is a bit more appealing.

Ahh... decisions... decisions....


EDIT just saw the correction... hmm seems a bit more palatable now.
Hmm I may just cave in.
