Meh, Still no interest for Circuit. Will sell him off if I get the sub (if it's reasonable).

I really want Scourge, Breakdown, Slipstream. Jackpot will stand in as a Kickoff for Animated, and I'm undecided on Ultra Mammoth. I might just trade him off for a Big Convoy + some extra cash. :lol: Circuit's gonna be sold to recover some of the damage.

Nah, he's the membership figure. Pretty happy to get another figure to add to that set of figures.

Circuit and Scourge will be joining the collection. Breakdown is too little too late. FPC gets my money for Classics Stunticons. He's a good choice, a smart one too. Just poor timing on the part of the club. Drag strip is on his way out once those drop too. Animated Jackpot does nothing for me either. The rest I'm certainly planning on getting. Ultra Mammoth is just too cool.

I'm guessing the price is going to be less than a Botcon boxed set, so I'm at least prepared to pay at least $300. The only figs I don't like are Circuit and Jackpot.

Ultra Mammoth is awesome because next to a Lio Convoy, their proportions will look good. I know Lio Convoy should be next to a Big Convoy and there has been no "Ultra Magnus" type character, but I'm still kind of confused about multiple convoys (especially two beast convoys) existing side by side like they did in the Beast Wars IDW comics. So until I get over that, having this figure next to Lio Convoy is going to be awesome.... btw I'm using Robot Masters Lio Convoy, otherwise the proportions are upsetting..

You do know you have to buy ALL of them, right? You can't pick and choose.

According to one of their responses to the image details regarding the subscription service should be revealed over the next couple of days.


>:oP :lol:

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I don't expect to hear anything in the next couple of days. Maybe by the end of the year, if we're lucky.

Nice thought. It hadn't occurred to me to display Mammoth beside smaller Lio Convoy. That should do nicely.

Kinda like the last SG Botcon set, I think viewed as stand alone characters.... many of these exclusives don't appear jaw-dropping-awesome... but that you have to put them in context with their sets. (ie. like merging the two SG sets)

As a group, I think these would all look odd (as I'm sure they will when they appear photographed together at the end of the year). But you put Depth Charge with the Botcon Beast Wars set, Scourge with Skybyte and Side Burn, Jackpot with Botcon Stunticon set, Breakdown with classics, Slipstream with...

All of a sudden all these will snap into shape quickly.

They were still there, nontheless. Ruination wore a great big one on his chestplate in several shots.

The only time there was ever a :CON: in the show was during the Saban-made insignia scene transitions.

On that note, I wonder if we'll be getting a Valdigus/Ruination colored set of FOC Bruticus. THERE'S something to display your Scourge/Black Convoy with. :-?

I can't wait for these figures. I think this subscription service has been the one thing that I've been looking forward to the most this year. I just hope Fun Pub can get all of its ducks in a row so that I can just sit back, relax, give them money, and enjoy these products hassle-free.

Yeah, it's really a shame that shipping is so high these days. I'd have LOVED the notion of getting a random one in the mail every couple of months.

Actually, with them revealing three in one pop. I'm wondering if the service is now mailing out three in a batch to save on shipping and cut costs? Hmmmm.

All will be revealed. >:oP

How do the Joe exclusives stack up? How many figures, how many shipments per year, how big were the figures and/or vehicles?

Questions questions questions.

Questions questions questions.

1) I don't think they stack up well at all. There's no center balance point where you can put one on top of another. Maybe with glue...
2) There are 12 figures, one per month, plus the 13th membership figure.
3) The figures are standard GI Joe figure size, 3.75 inches I think.

Now before you get into comparative questions (6 TFs vs 12 Joes) please remember that 1 TF probably has as many parts as two of the GI Joe figures. Also each TF is much bigger in height, width and mass than the GI Joe figures.

Thanks! Yeah, that's a quite different comparison.... was mostly curious how often they shipped them out. Interesting.

Yeah, having taken the custom class. Transformers have about twice as many parts as you think they do just looking at them. Quite a mess reassembling them. Had a few people on the verge of tears last year.
