Thank goodness it goes on throughout the rest of the month since I am nowhere near financially ready for this.

The more I think about it, the more I feel windsweeper should have been the torso from the silverbolt mold. That futuristic concorde looks just like a B1 bomber like what he is supposed to be. They could have made bludgon from the brawl mold since they are allowed to touch the bruticus retools. Also would be cool if they just scrapped impactor and did crankcase or quake instead. Crankcase from the rook mold would have been a better choice. Or quake from generations warpath like the charticon exclusive custom figure.

Wish the orders stood would go through October, but considered me very interested. Even if I don't decide to display them in combined form, my Classics Decepticons need some beefing up!

Very nice. I wonder what their combined form will be called?

Does anyone know if Impactor and the mystery 7th figure will come with a hand/foot piece?

That would be pretty trolly to release a Combiner Wars limb figure without the piece they'd need to become a limb.

As far as I know, all the Deluxes will come with all their accessories, as well as Double Targetmasters for Spinister and Needlenose.

Okay cool, hopefully that's true

While I don't disagree with the notion of someone other than Bludgeon being the torso, I feel it would have been cooler if they had retooled the Voyager Cyclonus mold into the Thuderwing (if such was feasible, that is) and used him as the torso instead since Thunderwing was the one who interacted with these exact four limb-bots, while Bludgeon was away from all of them at the time.

A three week window, considering that tomorrow is the start, doesn't really give me any leeway in making my order for this. Even breaking the price up in 3 doesn't help. Why not a 30 - 45 day window to make the purchase? It's not like we're getting the first figure anytime soon... :HEADHURTS:

The window between getting approvals and tooling availability confirmations and the deadline to get numbers in to start production greatly affects how long the pre-order window can be left open. Unfortunately.

That doesn't take away how less than thrilled I am that 4.0's starting before 3.0's final installment has yet to be made. Even by going with installments for 4.0, that's still a large expense to simultaneously wrap up one subscription and start another, especially when the point of installments is to ease the cost of the subscription in the first place.

Additionally...given how long it can take the club to get the first figures out anyways (Carzap in May being early compared to Barricade/RiD Scourge around July/August), would waiting a month or extending the order period into September have really created that significant a delay? I'd be fine with waiting longer to start getting figures if the order period was extended, and how this would lead to a delay then be sufficiently communicated to subscribers.

Are there plans to give Bludgeon a sword? I'm thinking of cases like Alpha Trizer and last year's AoE Silver Knight Deluxe Optimus that came with the random G1 Predacon sword. Or maybe it's already been shown with one and I wasn't paying close enough attention.

When it goes live, the order page will list what each figure comes with.

...Meaning Bludgeon will most likely come with a sword.

Shweet.

I can appreciate that, but essentially we're looking at a 9 month gap between 1st payment and 1st figure being released. Yes, we heard from the club in July that pre-orders will go live sometime in August. I just feel a bit miffed that I have a 3 week period to jump in on the program AND make some type of payment from the actual, time-specified start. Maybe it's just me, since I have other plans with the money available to me in the next 3 weeks.

I'm in that same boat of thinking.

TF_JW - I hope you can reach out to those in management and let them know that a bit longer grace period will not only be appreciated, but also net the club more subs.

i think what "The Informant" is trying to imply is that Bludgeon is going to be run right after Hasbro has Wave1 Part2 of Onslaught finished, and so order numbers have to be in before Hasbro shelves the tooling. I agree, in that I would kike to have had another few weeks. I've been setting aside money for this, but I also dont have Tfss3 bearing down on me this year, either. I wish they coulda done the order period a few weeks sooner, if nothing else, but that doesnt help with balancing the 3.0 payment plan

Tell me about it. Especially since I've also got open preorders for the optimus Maximus components and Grand Scourge.
