Well Seibertronians, you've asked the questions and they've been answered. The Seibertron.com Official Transformers Club Q & A Thread is doing well, and we're waiting on your questions for the Club. Here's an example of what's been going on:

Q. Will their be more Shattered Glass figures in the future?

A. Maybe... And we are revisiting the timeline with the Prose story Dungeons and Dinobots due out this Fall

Q. How do you choose the paint scheme and details when you do an exclusive? Does Hasbro have a say?

A. Just depends on the theme of the set. Plus, you have to take into consideration the other characters in the set, you don't want 5 green autobots lol...

Q. I am curious about the decisions to limit figure production. For example: I tried to order the 2007 botcon set but it was already sold out. Now I am trying to collect all the seekers but they are way out of my price range. If the demand is there, why are the production runs of set or exclusives increased? Or, why are the figures not reissued, maybe as a "second printing" like books?

A. We upped production at the last second but were still short. We are only able to do one run though, so when they are gone, they are gone... Trust me, we wish we had made more!


Here you get your chance to ask that nagging question you've wanted to know without having to be a member! So what are you waiting for? Get on over to the Q & A Thread and ask away. And after you've done that, check out the Transformers Club and sign up for all the benefits and exclusives only Club members can get!

Again, special thanks to Pete Sinclair and the Transformers Club for making this possible.

No doubt you are, because of the 25th Anniv and all. I am however bummed. Can't go. Too far and the new son Jordan will not be old enough to travel then and his mom will not want me leaving our new family, nor do I feel that I should at that time.

Rant over. Hooray for everyone else. Non-attending package here I come.

Pete can I please have some hookups on add on toys though??? Please.... :D For my newborn (in May) son of course!

Pete, any comment you can give us about this...

"Far be it from me to wreck your all's ideas. I just know that this year's set is going to rule!"


Anything more you can hint at for us here???? Is this related to that movie painted BLUE EVAC that was rumored to be Wrecker's member WHIRL?

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!

* 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!!!

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.
