I plan on joining on the 17th or later. I'm just hoping next years figure is better.

renew my membership?
ahahahaha nothing is free
the cost of renewing covers the cost of this fig. so essentially you are still buying the fig (minus the silly comics that come in the mail).
thanks but no thanks

if they want my business they need to come up with a fig that really gives that "wow" factor.

i'm talking about a non-repaint, non-existing, something completely new and exciting, fig.

ya i'm asking for a lot but my idea of a membership is to have access to really exclusive items that can't be bought by non-members. items that are worth the cash. i know it still sounds vague but i expected a lot from these guys when they first came out with the club. instead i paid $80 for a cheap-ass energon toy that i sold for a mere $5.

how the heck does $80 justify a membership that only provides you with an item that isn't worth that much?

thanks but no thanks :KREMZEEK: :APPLAUSE:

So you're blaming the club because you could not make a killing reselling their exclusive figure... :ic$: [-(

I like that silly comic. :-( But then again I also go to BotCon and buy all the exclusives. :P

I'm glad I signed up. I like the paint job on Dion. I think contrasting colors are especially eye catching.

It's really not worth it for me, being Canadian to sign up.

I'll buy it when it shows up at BBTS.

Try being an Australian.

Too much money for very little benefit.

What will they ask for it based on previous experience?
I'm pretty interested in this fig I think it looks good, not good enough to go spent like $90 to be a club member but still pretty cool.

Same here. I also like being able to buy exclusive figures I'm interested in at member prices. Getting discounts on Botcon and the magazine itself. Forty dollars isn't worth that? Hokay.
:BOT:

The last free fig was Heatwave, which they didn't even announce that they had, just slid it into their vintage dept for, I think 28 dollars.

I'd expect Dion to be 30-40, and around 60ish for SG Cyclonus and Counterpunch

If you're in America and don't have to pay out thousands of dollars in airfares to attend BotCon then sure, it's probably worth it.

But for International members who have to pay double the membership fees, then a lump of plastic and six magazines (which arrive a month late) really doesn't justify the extra price.

Anyway, wouldn't the Austrailian government censor out all the capital 'B's because the look too much like boobs.

nah, B's are fine, it's the I's they'll go after over because they're clearly flat.

See, I don't even have a smartarse come back for this because it's so damn true.

*sigh* I hate the politicians of my country. I should move to Canada and live in Mkall's roof.

Only if you promise to re-shingle it while you're in there.
