Im planning on signing up, but any idea if we get notifications on WHEN it is released? And i live in Asia, so your morning = my night.... so that should be a good thing...
Also, i expect it to be around US $60? (it'll be my 1st year signing up :lol: )

Also heard TFCC would be increasing the stocks significantly on runabout and drift. Dont care for drift though.

Doesn't require any modification and locks the parts in tightly. Between that and the head swap, these guys will look great on the ole shelf.


Given that this is the Wheeljack mold, there should be pegs near the knees that allow you to attach the shoulder missile/wrenches there, safe, secure, and out of the way. You can then put the larger weapon on their shoulder, like the original toy had, should you desire.

I LOVE the coloring on this figure. The red and black work so well together. I'll be joining the TFCC just to get these two.

If possible i'll get them both but i am not a fan of where they put the logo on these as it breaks up in botmode. I think they should leave off the hood symbol and just put one on the chest. That rub symbol can be slapped onto the side or back of the vehicle.

I'm not sure how, but the club making these has somehow made these characters more relevant to me. I was even looking on eBay for a set.

So you can say, I'm drinking the koolaid.

Runabout and Runamuck look awesome, they're the only official figure I'm interested in at the moment.

I guess we might get some news on more Generations stuff at NYCC though.

wow. I never thought about that until you mentioned it. Aside from the new Generations figures coming out, and these three (SG Drift included), I have no interest in any of the Hasbro offerings until maybe Prime gets released.

It's a rub symbol, just peel it off! That is, if you actually get it. These guys a pretty pricey...

price is no object,the real problem is i never open my figures,i would have to look at this thru a white box??!!then again its not really sealed so i would peel it off.but im so damn picky why even bother.no package no purchase.thats jus the way i see it.i hate that habit of mine...sometimes.

That they are!


Hey Pete, glad to see you're checking out the news story. Just wanna address the elephant in th room about availability on this item. I have a great idea on about how to handle demand: When members renew or signup for next year's member figure, have an option for them to prepay for this figure as well. Persons already eligible for the current figure could be notified by e-mail to prepay as well. After deadline passes for 2012 set, open orders for additional figures with no limits on purchase. You eliminate thre birds with one stone, everyone gets a shot to get one, retailers can fill orders after deadline and you make enough to satisfy demand of one set per eligible member.

I've also PM'd you this info as well, and I'd really like to know your thoughts.

I actually like this idea, assuming it limits each member to prepay for only one of each figure. As soon as the costs are known to TFCC, they can then put the charges on each member's account with X number of days to pay. Orders that aren't paid for are then tossed into the general preorder. That's pretty slick actually.

To address the elephant, Pete has stated that the number of figures they've ordered done are "significantly higher" than last year's. So here's hoping!
