Wondering where your TFCC free membership figure Sideburn is? TFCC recently sent out the following update:

We are still waiting on the Sideburn figures to arrive from China. They are in the United States but have not cleared customs. We are not going to give you an estimated date as we don't know when they will release them to us. As soon as we receive them, they will go to the mailer.

As soon as we mail them, we will send out another email. Thanks for your patience as we don't have control over these different government agencies.

Brian

I think they want a trailer just because they think it would look nice. In my own universe, this Sideburn would be an aged veteran kinda like Blur has become in recent releases and thus, upgraded himself. Also, Hotrod did not have a trailer but when he got the Matrix, he became Rodimus and ended up with a railer.

Well, then don't join the stupid club! It's $40 for a Deluxe repaint, so you kind of have to like it. I'm sure not renewing my membership next year, whether or not I like Side Burn. (Which I do.)

And before you get on my back about it, yes, there's also a couple 10-page magazines.

I'd support a Nemesis Optimal Optimus (with a bit of retooling and a Galaxy Convoy head!) for obvious reasons… but it would never be a free figure :-(

Considering as they advertised this since 2010 and many people signed up or reupped just for this figure, far more people would be pissed off then would be happy.

Oh and Shattered Glass Nemesis Primal would be white with teal and basically be the Ultra Humanite from the JSA, SG Waspnator would look like Inferno, and Shockblast is a voyager and the free figure can only be a deluxe..

It might look nice, but it also would look jacked that there's some blue dude that looks the same as Rodimus Prime on your shelf...

SS is fine for Shatter Glass Rodimus. Makes no sense for Wildrider, though.

It's totally reasonable. Still kind of unprofessional, but reasonable.

The most upsetting thing about the club isn't when I get the membership figure, but the fact that after that the membership feels worthless to me for the rest of the year once I get it.

There are a lot of people who feel the same as you do. Honestly, I really like getting the free figure but like going to Botcon, I do it for the people. There are not too many places where you can talk about Transformers and expect to get a informed and legitimate response. It is nice to have freinds with the same interests as you. There is no one I know locally in Fayetteville, NC that loves Transformers although there is someone here who scalps them.

Shattered Glass is just an excuse for repaints IMO, but while starwarrior1227 mentioned a SG Waspinator he said Nemesis Optimal Optimus, not SG Optimal Optimus… :-B

i would see nemesis optimal(based on the optimal model before transmetals) having red fur(yes its weird but i don't care) instead of the black fur, purple to replace the red on optimal, and the white on optimal would be replaced with black.

For all the naysaying about the club.... if you go to Botcon, it pays for itself. (You get the full price taken off of Botcon admission.) It's a no-brainer if you go to the con. That makes the club FREE. Everything that comes in the mail is just sweet icing....a free toy, bi-monthly comic, and exclusives if you want to buy 'em.

I've been really pleased with the art in the comic, as well as the exclusive characters. They've been using some great Classics molds, as well as paying attention to G1 lore (wreckers, Dion) and giving nods to forgotten eras (like G2 and RID).... and Shattered Glass was just epic. Cripes, it's hard to give a nod to every era and fan faction, but you can tell they really try.

I know it's tough creating value for a club like this... with manufacturing costs, printing, management, staff.... But I have to say, I haven't been displeased at all... and Sideburn looks great.

Debating if I'd buy an upgrade (again) for Sideburn if FansProject made it.

Maybe if it had a mold change? (new face or accessories) ???? :-?
