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...

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!

Wow. I am no fan of Runabout and Runamuck as characters really, but those are nice looking toys. Drift isn't too bad either (although a Deadlock repaint would have made more sense, IMO) and it is a nice toy. I wonder if I could be persuaded to sign up for the first time here. What's the price hike like for those of us living in the UK?

I'm buying all of these.

Now I want them to make my life complete and give me SG Dirge.

Drift will be MINE. I love that used the guns instead of the swords. It's a very SG thing to do since I would think Drift in the SG world lost his sense of honor.

I've been waiting for Runabout & Runamuck for ages and was already contemplating getting them customed. This is definitely pleasant news for me but I must admit that I'm sitting on the fence about the mold used until clearer pics are available.

Well after seeing these and the 3rd party pics I have officially ceased my searches for movie figures..I now have my targets in sight.. Im all over anything of the Shattered glass variety and that Drift is beyond sexy...I love the TurboTracks mold used for RAB and RAM..Soooooooo bought on site..

I find myself oddly ambivalent to Runabout/amok.

I want to be excited, but I don't know how I like them from that mold. :???: :???:

SG Drift, I like! I need to come up with detail graphics for Blurr and rename him, and haved a little army of tuners.

I cheered when this was announced. I've been pushing for these two for many many years and now it's finally happened. Also SG Drift should be cool as they're talking about making him kinda like Deadpool

Find a friend near you who's a member and ask him to order them for you, that's cheaper than signing up yourself, well unless you really want to be a member and get the magazines.

Also these are cool, well except for Drift.

Was about to sign up this year, and then lost interest when I missed the date for Side Burn. Definitely considering signing up next year - Runabout and Runamuck are perfect for increasing my dwindling number of pre-86 Decepticons. Dunno about SG Drift though.

I am feeling the same way. I love Runabout/Runamuck. It's a great mold but is it the best choice for these two characters?

Well, if you don't fold out the wings and leave the doors pointing down it doesn't look so bad. With the molds available Wheeljack fits the bill with looks:

- hood becomes the legs
- roof becomes the chest
- rear becomes the backpack
- missile launcher

Thing is, has Hasbro reclaimed both names?

Runamuck and Runabout look great. They may get me to sign up for the club, depending on how much they'll be. I just wish that they had used Tracks's body for one of them, so that they wouldn't be identical. After all, they did turn into different cars in G1.

Runabout and Runamuck, I wish they used a different mould, like Classics Bumblebee. While I love Shattered Glass and probably will get it, I wish they did Evil Decepticon Deadlock.

Well no. Up untill now it never bothered me at all, but with more and more interesting choices Hasbro makes, I'm starting to itch a little.

Maybe open up a topic in the toys-section and see if we can get any help?
