Soon your TFCC Over-Run (Runabout) figure will no longer be lonely.

The Transformers Collectors' Club tweeted that the freebie figure Runamuck has started shipping.

If you signed up as a member of the club before the deadline which was extended until March 21, hopefully yours will be showing up soon.

Perhaps you may even get him before BotCon.

Honest to god I had to send them my renewal form via mail before the deadline after the whole hack job. Sweet tender baby jesus they better not have screwed me over and took care of my renewal... after everrything I am a hair trigger from ending future botcon visits.

I got the reminder envelope months before I had to renew so when they first posted about needing to mail it in I just got a money order and sent it in. I was renewed a full 10 days before the original 15th deadline via good old snail mail. 8) I still don't see what all the state side fuss was about. International, I can understand.

At this rate, I'll probably get my Runamuck before my Runabout! :HEADHURTS:

I hope some Seibertron members will give us the heads up when their Runamuck arrives. I love it when someone states they received a figure in the mail. Like clock work, 48 hours after people start receiving their toys, I get mine!

Really looking forward to this set.

No email or tracking info to confirm shipment???

Don't like this at all... Not one bit.

This is standard, they never provide notice or tracking on the freebie figure.

I just hope it doesn't take them a month to ship them all out.

Knowing the club, they will ship just a small percentage next week then, then be all like "We have to shut down the office for the next week to prepare for BotCon and can't resume shipping until a few days after BotCon." Then it will be "Due to high number of orders it will take us the next several weeks to finish shipping them all."

Nothing yet. I was just thinking how nice it would be to get him before the con. After is just as good as well, I guess.

Keep an eye on those mailboxes TFCC members! This year's membership incentive figure Runamuck has started to arrive. Mine arrived this morning and I snapped a few quick shots of the highly anticipated freebie and companion to TFCC's 2012 Exclusive Over-Run (aka Runabout).

These do look fantastic. Great sculpt, packaging, and concept. Glad to see them knock one out of the park, in the midst of all the other issues and drama. When the dust settles, I'm just glad to walk away from it all with some really decent figures this year.

Got mine today. Since I don't care for the character or the mold, he will be on his way to his new home tomorrow.

Whaaaa. Wow. Don't care for the mold. I'm completely the opposite. With various slight transformation changes and poses, you can make 3 vastly different characters out of the mold.

Between the twins, Wheeljack and Tracks, you can pose the backpack, wings, launchers, and wheels in various positions (not to mention the legs). It's almost as much fun as the Sideswipe mold.

nah. They ship separately, so I wouldn't worry JUST yet.

Whoa, mine actually arrived today! Glad it arrived intact despite some damage to the box.

Good looking figure, love this set!

That was the last issue and most people still haven't gotten the next one. No worries.

Yet.

I got mine today. But no TFC magazine yet. Im not sure why anyone wouldnt like this figure. My goal is to have a scale figure for every character in the G1 continuity. Hasbro, 3rd party, KO, it really doesnt matter to me. I welcome the real "twins" to my shelf.

Thanks my friend. I make no secrets on where I stand with my collection. As far as these guys being the "real twins" I feel Sunstreaker and Sideswipe never really had any particular bond to be considered twins. One was a real Lamborghini Countach, the other a futuristic take on the same car. Thats about all. And let me not get into Mudflap and Skids... ;)

Got mine yesterday :) Or at least 24 hours ago depending on your time zone.

Currently at a friend's place in the US, which means I'm not getting it in-hand till late June. Oh well, at least it made it safely...

Yeah, in my mind, I just picture some of those guys rolled off the assembly line on the same day. (Prowl, Bluestreak.... Jazz, Stepper... a dozen seekers.

But I somehow do picture these two guys as twins in the way they interact. And of course the twins Mudflap and Skids... you know... the G1 one ehobby ones. The others do...not...exist. *puts fingers in ears and yells la-la-la-la*

Skids and Screech I think you mean, and yeah the others are not even worth thinking about.

I'm annoyed that I may have to part ways with my Over-run since I wasn't willing to deal with the club any more. Cool either one of these guys may be, but having one without the other does kinda detract from the overall package.

Mudflap was never in G1... Mudflap 1st appeared in Cybertron/Galaxy Force as a traitor... But I'm sure you knew that and just refuse to acknowledge the existence of the bay-twins. :lol:

And I was wrong! It was Over-Run, not Runamuck. On the walk back home though I kinda hoped they had pulled out the car shaped foam insert and stuck him in there. Now that would've been cool!

These are all my personal opinions. If you and everyone else think it's awesome, that's fine. The car mode is OK. Bot mode? The feet are a problem for me. They're too flat, wide and huge. Also, it's tall enough to be with the Generations deluxes, even the original G1 figures. But to me it's just too wide and flat in the upper body as well. It makes the feet stand out even more. It's like he has clown shoes on. It was borderline acceptable with Wheeljack, because the original looked just like it, but these 2? The characters to me were never important enough to overcome my dislike of the figure features. Actually, the color scheme on Over-run is alright, if he was the membership freebie by himself, I probably would have kept him. But I just don't like the white on Runamuck. Too plain. Also, the fact that they go together and Runamuck without Over-run would be kinda pointless to have is another turn off. I wouldn't mind having Over-run, I would keep him in car mode, though. But Runamuck isn't appealing to me even in car mode. That's why I don't like this figure. :)

But those feet and the short height are the reasons the mold is perfect for them! And the white isn't a plain white like Wheeljack's, it's off white. Like an oyster or eggshell white. It's about as different from plain white as Over-Run's charcoal gray is from black.

Basically, if you love and want these guys (and I do), these are the way to go.
