It's that time of the year again. Forget about Christmas, Valentine's Day, and everything in between, we're nearing March! With that said, it means that this year's Transformers Collectors' Club Free Membership Figure will be shipping in due time. Pete from the TFCC has sent us a nudge, notifying us that their website has been updated with a new picture of Elite Guard Dion - a repaint of Henkei Hot Shot, and you can check him out in all of his glory below.

The figure is set to be shipped to all TFCC members who have signed up for membership prior to March 16th! Check out the Transformers Collectors' Club website for yourself.

My only problem with this is that the Autobot logo on the door is cut off because of the hinge there. Other than that he looks great.

You shut it, you Armada lovin' weirdo! Heh. He does look pretty nice though. I don't really want another two years of an elite guard theme but whatever.

Funny, before I saw this thread my thoughts were "HAWT".

I'm really excited about this toy.

You have Armada in your sig...

Anyway, I agree, two more years of Elite Guard stories and characters was not where I'd hoped we go on the Club field trip.

Just re-upped my membership the other day. Dion and Coptur will be nice.

I agree. I was debating joining TFCC this year, but between this and SG Cyclonus, I'm sold.

Technically yes, but.... I have no clever response. ;)

Don't hit me but.... who's Dion again? :grin:

Not a bad looking toy, but I obviously won't be picking him up since I have no knowledge of the character.

I know Im probally gonna get slammed by 90's era fans, but I gotta ask why on Earth (or Cybertron) would this character have a human name ??? (Dion)

I was anti-this-figure at first, but this picture makes him look not so bad. I'm still not thrilled, but it's getting better, just in my opinion.

Stop trolling. This is your only warning on the matter.

Wow! I'm glad I signed up for the TFCC! A few months ago I snagged the awesome Astrotrain figure, and now Dion is coming out and it looks great! Although, I must say I am way more excited for the Shattered Glass Cyclonus figure. :CON:

Who even says it's a human name? Bion, Ion, Pion, etc don't sound human, so maybe Dion is just a coincidence.

I'll be getting this guy, though I'll be calling him Windbreaker due to them sharing a very similar paint scheme.

That's a perfect TFCC figure. I can live without it. The biggest flaw is the orange thingie in the middle of the blue painting and the autobot logo.

*Tries to imagine a paint scheme that could do wonders with the mold...*
Color it black with green or yellow lightning paint job, and I'll buy it.
