Pete@Botcon has updated the sales percentage of Punch/Counterpunch on the Transformer's Collectors Club forum. Punch/Counterpunch is now over 82% gone! Which means there are approximately less than 300 left!

So if you haven't ordered Punch/Counterpunch, you should probably do so quickly before they are all gone. Click the link below to order yourself a Punch/Counterpunch if you still need one before they are gone and be sure to check out Shattered Glass Cyclonus and Elite Guard Dion as well.

Crap

Dear Pete, could you have picked a different week than one that Dadwas in the hospital to release P/CP? As it is, I'm gonna miss out on the one I want, because the guy who's name is on the credit card is laid up. I have money, but no card. Oh well.

Crap.

Remember demand talks money and money talks re-issues. If Counterpunch is so hot, what makes you think Hasbro or even Takara wont pay off TFCC to mass produce ??? Do you think TFCC can afford to turn down a million dollar deal ??? Or even $500,000 or $250,000 ???

No disrespect to anybody but I see this figure making a comeback. Just like Thrust.

Maybe, but Thrust will took 3 years to make mass produced status in the US since his first appearance. It's also been said (and confirmed) that TFCC destroys the molds it uses to prevent KOs appearing in the future.

So I'm not holding my breath; and even if P/CP does make mass release, I'll have gottem my enjoyment from the fig.

Not only that, but if/when P/CP makes a 'traditional' release, if ever, it won't be exactly like the TFCC release, just like Thrust wasn't. In this case, that's a guaranteed new head sculpt.

I'd be right in line for that reissue also.; just like Thrust. Maybe Hasbro/TT would scuplt some new hands. 3rd party makers have an opportunity here. I wondering how long before those appear in the market? ;)

TFCC licenses product from Hasbro, not the other way around. If Hasbro wanted to make more, they'd tell TFCC, "We're making more." :P I'd be shocked if Hasbro/Takara would ever do that, though, without telling the TFCC "you're through." Sure, they'd re-sculpt possibly, but never straight out reissue the club's exclusive works.

Well since I joined the club in January, I may be pleased. It looks like the numbers for p/CP are low, less than 2000, maybe about 1600 made. In the HWC/RLC we had cars that were in the 10,000 range. But the ones under 2000 were worth the money.

That's my opinion as well. I've been enjoying Thundercracker, Thrust, and Dirge from the GoD set for three years now. Making the set well worth the price I paid for the Iacon package.

I can't believe I've just done this, but I've preordered my Punch/Counterpunch... spur of the moment decision. Thank Primus for club prices, though...

Ok, I can understand anyone wanting 3 of these for themselves. But seven!?
You are officialy a borderline scalper who is out of his freaking mind.

Fun Pubs really needs to put a three per member limit.

And so many of you people are ordering around 5-10 of these things!
Are any of you not scalpers? :-x

Call it an investment. Call me a collector. DO NOT CALL ME A SCALPER! How offensive to be grouped with that scum. Scalpers buy up as much of a product as they can and usually immediately sell it on eBay for rediculous mark-ups. And don't type as if you know me. I am a collector who is just now starting a Botcon collection. A MISP/MISB collection. And by the way, paying out the ass for it. I am getting my Punch/Counterpunch figures to help pay for my hobby, my passion, my obsession.

Why is it so understandable to get 3? Shouldn't 1 suffice? I'll proudly have a Punch on my shelves, I'll have a Counterpunch as well. I'll have a specimen to keep MISB for myself, and 4 more to sell as i please, or maybe give to friends. I'll probably sell them as most of my friends choose to blow all there money on getting high and wouldn't appreciate them. Or maybe, just maybe, I'll send one to a certain moderator who is likely lurking, real nearby.

If you want to call me a scalper, thats fine. I will call you Dickcheese. But lets not resort to name calling shall we?

Now i have to go to bed angry. Maybe an eighth P/CP will make me feel better.

And seriously, I don't think any of us on this board are scalpers. Just enthusiastic about vehicles that can change form into robots. Dickcheese.

So let me get this right.

You buy extra with the intention of selling down the track.

And that's not scalping.

Yes? :???:

Leave him be. Everyone's got a fair chance at getting a piece if they happen to have the money and membership.

You'll have to settle for MIB since they won't be sealed. The boxed club and Botcon figures aren't ever. Bagged figures are a different story of course since they're sealed in a baggy.

This is wise. I'd edit your post a bit. Flaming isn't really tolerated bud.

Your right. What I said was over the line. I should not have called anyone a "scalper". And I apologize for it.

But I still strongly believe that there should be a limit on how many people order. Just to avoid such a thing.

Also Flux is right. They aren't MISB, only MIB. The most I've personally seen so far is a few teeny rubber bands on some minicons.

Well, according to Victorysabre over at the club boards, it looks like P/CP is sold out! Glad I got my chance to get one with my smart phone while down in Miami while this all went down. Phew!!

Victorysabre"Punch now seems to be sold out. If you add one to your basket it automatically adjusts the quantity to 0."

It's marked as "discontinued" now at the club store.

Wow, that was a quick sellout :shock:
