craggy wrote:Just to clarify, for someone based in the UK, there'd be the normal Club sub price (with the various magazines and Depth Charge included) plus the international shipping charge on top of that, plus the exclusive figure subscription charge (which as I read it means 1 of each figure, you can't pick and choose, or order multiples of individual figures) and then the international shipping charge for those plus the optional insurance to guarantee they ever send anything?

Hmmm, those 3rd party products don't looks so bad price-wise now.

That is correct, but the one saving grace for collectors overseas is that a member may order an unlimited number of subscription sets (but you must buy them all as a set so it's full price for multiples).

Hopefully that means that some will buy many sets and overload the aftermarket with them so the prices are reasonable (and shipping would certainly be less ;)).

It also means that members can pay non-members to order sets for them, so ordering in groups in the UK would not be a bad idea at all.

Ditto.
$42 for membership.
$285 for 6-figure subscription
$53-something for cheapest shipping

for two figures (even selling the other four figures)… :-? hmmmmm.

no.

I'm assuming BBTS will be doing these same way they're doing the G.I. Joe ones.
I'll wait it out. :-$

tl;dr



So, how can we order single figures? We'd have to wait for the subscription program to finish? I don't need all 6 figures.... I just want Scourge.

Buy a leftover on the TFCC store? Maybe BBTS will stock them individually like they did with the GI Joe sub figures.

Well, that was anticlimactic. Guess I'll wait to find Breakdown on his own, or maybe pool up with a few fellow Canadians.

For those hoping to find Scourge individually, best of luck. Seems like he's the one everyone's salivating over and I don't doubt he'll be going for a heap of cash on eBay.

That you can't buy individuals is a mess. Just shy of 50 dollars a figure, not including shipping and membership fees... No. Just no. Do not want. =;

I reluctantly ordered. These bastards fool you by leaving out the shipping costs. It's supposed to be a god damn subscription, WTF ??? They dont charge you shipping for the membership figure. I would think they would give you some kind of bulk rate and include it automatically. And insurance, HELL NO !!! What makes these figures special that accountability costs extra when they will replace any other product they sell without "insurance" ??? Suck it Funpub, Im keeping my beer money. I trust USPS that it will arrive. But if they send me a defective product, they will be hearing from me. I shouldnt have to pay extra to get what I paid for the first time.

I must confess that I am not a big fan of their exclusives. There was always two that kind of caught my eye, but with Ultra Mammoth being in the line-up... I now have to say that there are three I may have seek out at some point! :lol: [UPDATE: Which will not happen now, unless Takara Tomy decides to license them... Which may never happen.]

That's a mistake. On figures like these, eBay will rarely undersell BBTS or other online stores.

At least with BBTS you can put in a preorder and not pay until it arrives, giving you plenty of time to find a better option.

So, wait ... you really do have to order all six? Like many I really only want Slipstream and Nemesis Prime.

At BBTS' prices it's almost worth it to buy them from the club directly. Especially since I also like Ultra Mammoth.

....I noticed I'd have to do this as well, seeing as the last credit card they had a faxed photocopy from me was the one thats details were stolen, and I started getting bogus charges on before I cancelled it....

Then, looking at the shipping breakdown, etc.... :HEADHURTS:

Right, for me to get 6 figures, 1 I want soo bad it hurts, the other 2 I was 'meh' about, and the rest I couldn't be arsed about, the cost will work out at:

$82 for International membership;
$285 if I pay upfront; $291 if I go with instalments,
$140~$150 for cheapest shipping, with insurance;

All told, around $520 for 6 figures, (plus all the usual photocopying, postage, blah blah blah, which still shows they have your 'confidential' details on plain paper, AGAIN)

F@@@[<[<[< YOU FUNPUB!!!!! AGAIN!!!!!!!

I' ll get Scourge somehow, and I'll do it through PayPal, or a reasonable eCommerce payment system...


I just hope they have planned to have at least double, maybe treble the amount of Scourges for the secondary market - if they have the ability to 'make to order', at least have the insight to realise that this is the one everyone has been waiting for since RTS G2 Prime came out....

If that's the case, then I'm completely skipping these rip-offs. At least with 3rd party toys I know my $100 is going towards a brand new mold and not a huge markup repaint.
