So here is a random question from a noob. *points at self* Say you miss the deadline for the getting the heatwave figure free. Any chance that this will become available as a TCC member exclusive to buy in the future or will those that sign up after the deadline have to maybe possibly buy it off of Ebay in the future? Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Not sure if its right for you? Don't think there are any benefits to joining? Here's a breakdown of everything you'll get when you are a member:

* Bi-monthly TFCC Magazine featuring the very latest figures in the Transformers universe. Updates from Club officials on whats going on within the Club, product reviews, exclusive first looks at Transformers figures, interviews with Transformers designers and writers and much more.

* A monthly subscription to the Master Collecter newsletter PLUS a free 30 word ad for you EVERY MONTH! Bonus: One person is chosen each month at random that has placed a specific ad for a Transformers item, will receive a free Transformers figure from the Club!

* Club exclusive figures at the members price.

* Discounts on purchases such as Botcon attendance packages and classes.

* A FREE club exclusive figure every year JUST FOR BEING A MEMBER!!!

* Access to the members only forums where all the latest Club info breaks first.

And if thats not enough to get you amped, the guys and gals over a Fub Publications are working hard to get you even more bang for your buck such as contests, club oriented activities and of course BOTCON 2009!

So what are you waiting for, get on over to the TFCC and join today!!!



have you thought about makeing it more affordable for non U.S residents to join the offical club, we've just had a hard sell to join, but i for one can't afford to pay $us89.00 a year, simply for 6 magazines and a slight discount at the from the club store.

You can usually purchase these figures at the club store (through the club), at Botcon at the club's booth--until they are out of stock--, and also the other options that you mentioned.

At least that has been my experience at Botcons. There are usually plenty of these to go around.

Being new to this and after looking over the information looks like a great deal. However I do have question I am in a situation where we are a Transformer fan married couple. Most things the club offers is in general not something we need 2 of. Would it really be necessary for both of us to join. The reason I ask is can just one of us join and can that one then buy 2 discounted tickets to Botcon. If not have you considered offering price point higher then single membership but tailored for a couple. So couple doesn't have to take it on the chin for two memberships and save the trees on a unwanted second copy of the bi-monthy mag. Offer a Single copy of the bi-monthly, 2 discounted Botcon tickets, maybe two club forum memberships?

Thanks again for your time.

Hi Classy,

Seeing as Pete and the Crew over at the TFCC have had their hands full with the recent GIJOE Convention and trying to lock down a location for Botcon 2010, I'll answer this question for them.

As long as you have a membership to the Official Transformers Collectors Club, you would be able to get a variety of member priced packages for Botcon. Members are allowed to by more than one Primus package during early registration, this is the package that includes the boxset exclusive toys for Botcon, an all access pass to the dealer room, panels and pretty much every event occurring from Friday to Sunday.

With one membership I believe you can also sign up you and your wife/husband for the special customizing class normally held the Wednesday prior to the convention, along with any tours or special trips planned before the main event opening on Friday. If you don't want to get two full Primus sets, you can get a lower cost Protoform package that includes everything save the boxset, or a Minicon package add on that is available with any Primus package purchase and has all the liberties of the Primus pack save the boxset also.

If I missed anything, Im sure Pete will clear it up for you.

Hi Pete, thanks for taking the time to answer questions now and then.

When looking at molds to use for Botcon and the TFC Exclusives, do you limit yourself only to Transformers molds, or are the TF:Crossover lines fair game? Some of the star wars and marvel crossovers might make decent figs with a new head mold.
