Glad I got them all the Combaticons(?) the first time around, it's the only Energon combiner set that I completed.

Still having both of the Energon repaints of this mold, I have to say, its one of the better combiner limb molds.
I specially like the Purple and Gray Color scheme of Energon Blackout.
I'm still curious as to who the final gestalt is going to be, and who they are going to use as the center piece for it with the new Head they have announced.
I think Barricade would look cool in translucent red.
So we have 2 Planes: Breakaway and Skyfall, a Tank: Landquake, and now a Helicopter: Topspin as the final limb.

Oh good....from all these prototypes & such I was starting to fear he wouldn't be transparent. Glad to hear he will be.

It's already been pretty much confirmed from images in the club comic that it is going to be Barricades body. What the resculpted head will look like is still anyones guess though.

Whew. For a minute there I thought you were just going to do a crappy repaint and use it to entice people out of $40.00 a year for pointlessness.
Oh wait, it *will* be a repaint, but translucent?
GEE WILLIKERS, BOB! WHERE DO I SIGN?! COME ON! THAT'S THE DEAL OF A LIFETIME!
I thought this whole "One per year 'til the set's complete!" mixed and matched combiner crap was ridiculous.
$40.00 a year for a crappy magazine, discounts for BotCon (iirc...) and a translucent repaint of a hard to find figure.
Where the heck do I sign up? I mean really, that's such a great deal, I think I might soil myself.
...bah. Who do they think they are? This is the best they could come up with as a perk for joining the club? Pathetic.
I know some of you out there, enjoy it and use it. (though I can't figure out why. There aren't enough positives to outweigh the CRAP to make it worth it.) However, people enjoy what they enjoy, so far be it from me to deny you your piece of the action.
I still don't get it though...what a craptacular sales pitch.
"Oh nay nay! For $40.00 American (and a disgusting amount more for you international types...), you'll get a translucent repainted figure that some will get and others won't due to our "shipping problems", a magazine that won't be on time for most of you, a discount in our online store which is actual store cost minus taxes (but you'll pay that back and then some in shipping. We're fart smell...smart fellers.) and you'll receive a discount to BotCon, which you still can't afford anyway! Not to mention, exclusive figures you can't get anywhere else, like a repainted and remolded Energon Slugslinger who's now Airrazor. Though you'll pay far, far, far more than what the original mold is worth... How cool is that? Isn't that worth $40.00 a year?"
NO. *cracks 'em in the kneecap*

Landquake was the same way. The color scheme is nothing new for this line/series of exclusives.

It was a Prime broken up for some yet undisclosed reason.
I've said it before, I'll say it again.
The Club is absolutely worth the minimal $40 a year.
I suppose you can't convince everyone and that's fine. The comics, the toy, the shipping for all that included in the price, and then the BotCon discount...you almost break even for what you get. Go to BotCon and you come out ahead in terms of Club costs.
Next year I'm going to have a very cool complete Club combiner. Hard to believe it will have been five years at that point. I'm going to be dead sooner than I thought...
