If you're a fan of exclusives toys, and loved the 2011 Generations toy line/2011 Reveal The Shield toyline, you're going to love the 2012 Transformers Collectors' Club exclusives. Courtesy of BotCon's Twitter, we've got three sneak peeks at the three exclusives figures. Runabout uses the RTS Turbo Tracks mold, features a new head, and will be the free incentive figure. His partner in crime, Runamuck, will be the white variant of the Runabout mold, and is the club's first exclusive toy to be purchased. Lastly, for you Shattered Glass enthusiasts, Drift makes his way into the alternate universe as the second purchasable exclusive. Using his own Generations mold, and replacing his swords with Blurr's arsenal. Check out the sneak peeks below!

Wow, they've managed to do it. They've managed to come up with club exclusives that i'm genuinely interested in.

Runabout and Runamuck that is. SG Drift can do unmentionable things to himself.

Ya, I don't really like the Club figures this year. I was kind of interested in last years and was tempted to subscribe but eventually didn't cause I figured getting the figures I wanted would just cost too much when there were plenty of good products in stores to buy. These guys on the other hand, do not interest me. If they made Sideburn I wonder why they didn't make X-Brawn and Prowl.

Does anyone else notice that SG Drift's paintjob in vehicle mode looks almost exactly the same as Knockout from Transformers: Prime?

Son of a... every time I try to get out, they pull me back in. Those three look really good. I'm really happy that the one with the remolded head is the free figure. I wonder if Drift will be retooled to hold Blur's guns.

Oh, I'm sure they will. They just need to use Blurr's holsters instead of Drift's. Oh shit, does this mean SG Drift needs to be part of my Blurr collection?... I do have Universe Swerve in them from '03... [/color]

Agreed. I can't help but feel these forms are a bit too flashy for Runabout and Runamuck.

Alright, you got me interested. Keep it coming TFCC. However, I am still having a hard time forgiving you for your custom class choices compared to your exclusives to purchase choices over the last few years.

Runamuck and Runabout look very nice and neat. Don't care for another Drift.

I'll be getting all three. I do wish that with them making Drift, that they include BOTH Blurrs firearms AND Drifts melee weapons. It'd make him all the more menacing and with all the storage possibilities on the figure itself, you wouldn't be left over with any pieces. :)

they all look really good to me but i just wish they wouldnt grind that classics tracks/wheeljack mold into the ground. its one of my favorite molds in the classics line.

Prodigious. Two more canon Deceps for the shelf, based off my favorite Generations mold, and another Shattered Glass 'bot, based off my second favorite Generations mold.

Keep up the good work, TFCC. :grin:

Very elaborate post. :P

Runabout and Runamuck are very cool and I will be purchasing them once available, that new head is cool and the Tracks mold really works here. In fact, slightly better than it did for Tracks.

Likewise, I respect the group of fans still interested in the SG toys, but personally the concept's old and tired at this point. Drift impresses me very little, and for a SG Autobot I think there's a little too much white on him.

My main problem with TFC exclusives these days is that they seem more and more just like things Hasbro could do if they wanted to. Maybe that's an effect of seeing oddities such as Space Case, Skull Grin and Straxus just to name a few at retail lately. The TFC needs to step up their game with some more novel concepts.

Thanks for posting. I want these pretty bad! I love this mold very much. Looks like I will be joining the club, though I won't say 100% until I see more pics of these. I'm psyched!
