That ladder seems very obstructive. However, the other kits seem rather fine.

I'll have a reason to buy Inferno now and a new cassette for Soundwave :D

Cool upgrades! This will make Inferno worth getting. I didn't care for him before now. Hasbro get your shit together.

Never felt the shoulder cannons were a necessity for the twins. But if they look good I might just have to pick them up.

However you guys do realise that most fire trucks don't have ladders. Most pumper trucks, which is what Inferno is, just pump water and are built for that specific purpose. Hook and Ladder Trucks or Turnable Ladders carry the ladders and are built specifically for that purpose. Now I say most because in some smaller towns they can neither afford a hook and ladder truck nor have much need for it so they can combine as many functions as possible into one vehical. Usually called a quad or quint for the number of function it provides.

Hm... The Auto Scout is DOPE! I remember that episode. That's when I decided Windcharger was cool!

Did Sunstreaker ever have a Rocket Launcher?

Inferno's Ladder looks good. Really Anime-Mecha-ish. The Gun Hand is a must.

Ah, you have to love CAD prototyping. Production is even cooler, tho.
B-)

Lovely. Sorta


Now I might join the club.


If they can make a whole new reissue set of Cassette-bots, I'm there.


Also a good reason to buy Inferno. He looked too plane without the ladder.

I prefer that smaller rocket launcher to the big ones. Better proportions.


Bring on Ratbat and friends!

The autoscout is awesome. Defiantly a must have for me. Depending on price that is.

I never thought I'd be so excited about a toy of Auto-Scout. And lo behold here I am very excited about a toy of Auto-Scout. Go figure. :D

Hahaha, welcome to my job Boss. I get to tell people that smoke a curb in a snow storm that their warranty doesn't cover that sort of thing. Shouldn't be too bad though. Your tires side wall doesn't look pooched so it should only set you back a new steel rim. What's that down there, like $40?


Ahem. Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooomb! I can't wait to spend money on these (Music to every companies ears) I've been waiting for a while now for a new and proper rocket launcher for Sideswipe.

I’m rarely ever interested in these sorts of things, but these are very nice. Can’t wait to get some much needed cannons for my Sideswipe and Mirage. I think Sunstreaker’s fine as is though, but I’ll probably stick one on him too.

Cool set, but the missile launchers are stupendously large. Hope the final product is more to scale.

No one really cares about what type of truck Inferno technically is, since the original had a ladder they felt this version should to. ;p

This is really the sort of thing they should of included with the original figures, as far as the missile launchers and such go, if they wanted to keep proper homage to the original figures.

Personally, I just stuck one of the launchers from the old camero movie-Bee in the shoulder slot and that's fine for Swipe. Though I should repaint the projectile to match better.

That is very cool! I always wanted that cassette to be made for Soundwave.

TFClub is different than the Official Transformers Collectors Club that HASBRO supports. TFClub is more of a garage toy company, filling voids with things like MP-Rollar, etc., and is not in anyway official or supported by HASBRO.

I think instead of giving Sunstreaker the launcher I'll be giving it to Redalert instead.

Well I ahve to say that's the most exciting upgrade set I've seen since CC...I'll have to look into getting ahold of this one...

Agreed, I'd love to get this set (and I just watched the episode with Autoscout tape in it the other day) but I think the missile launchers are all a little oversized. Hopefully they shrink them a little.

I know this is a dumb question but, How do you join? The entire site is in a different language.

Don't join, you'll be able to buy that set via BBTS or Robotkingdom.

Don't need to join, this isn't actually the official TF Collectors Club, this is just a garage company that makes toys.

Once the items are produced, you'll probably be able to buy them via TFsource or BBTS.

It's kinda funny you say that. I had kinda wished there was a toy of it when I first saw it. Now, I'm oddly excited.

This sounds very similar to what I said up there. :roll: This is not a club like the HASBRO club, this more like an independent organization that creates toys.

Anyway, yay for these guys again.

That's what I was thinking. Unless you can do the same to Sunstreaker that you can to Inferno. Attach a missile to his hand so he looks a little more old school.

The funny part is two months after these are released Repolabels will come out with a sticker set for them, egging fans into dropping even more coin.

I just love what these garage companies are doing now days! Definite buy. Why the hell didn't Hasbro add a ladder to Inferno to begin with?
Re: TF Club: New weapons pack! (860123)
Posted by Arlekkin on January 2nd, 2009 @ 3:09am CST
hmmm..... they sound a great idea (especially the Auto roller drone).... unfortunately can't see the pics and tried to access the site (tfclub.com) from 2 different pcs :(

-Edit-

Ok I've seen them on tfw2005.... Well I kinda like the Auto roller. On the other hand I can't judge the launchers for mirage and sideswipe and the ladder with rocket launcher for inferno before a prototype is produced.

I am very excited about the autoscout. I've always wanted it when I saw it 20+ years ago.

I agree...The unofficial releases this year have been jaw-dropping...

But they didn't put a ladder on the truck because they wanted to update him a bit and go with something more modern, like they've been trying to do in general with the classics/universe figures...
