The deadline has passed already.

They're shooting themselves in the foot by allowing such a short window of opportunity to sign up.

Agreed 100%. Making the decision to spend that much money isn't taken lightly by most.
Well, last year we had from August 17, 2012 to midnight on September 10, 2013 to sign up for the TFSS 1.0, which was a window of 25 days.

This year, we had from September 26, 2013 to midnight on October 17, 2013 for the TFSS 2.0, which was a window of 22 days, only three days less than last year.

Yes, and even 30 days would be too short. Especially since it takes them so long to reveal all of the figures.

They should give us like 3 months AFTER the final reveal to decide whether or not we wish to sign up.

They need to to have time to get all the orders in and get the toys ready, though. The years are simply too short to stretch these things out so long.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Maybe, but I still think less than a month is cutting it way too close when you're talking about hundreds of dollars for what have been up to this point very mixed sets of figures. I think it's hard for any fan to say they are 100% in or out on either of the sets they've done so deciding whether or not it's worth it to pull the trigger takes time.
