We just received some exciting news from the Transformers Collectors' Club, regarding a massive sale they're currently having over at their store: a clearance of all their archived figures! Read more about it below, including an exclusive extra with each purchase, and happy money purge shopping.

Hello Club -

I hope things are cooling down in your area! Today we begin a new sale. We are running out of room in the warehouse and we have decided to "thin" down some of the archives. We have been keeping too many of each product for future use and now it is time to reclaim the space! We have been at this for over 10 years so there is quite a bit of different items to choose from... some retail... some sold out exclusives and convention items!

However... we don't have many of any of these products! Some are the only one left!

So, to make this even more fun we are including with each of these products, the below Certificate of Authenticity which if you look closely, has the embossed 1926 Corporate Seal of Hassenfeld Bros. Inc. Providence, RI. We came across this one of a kind item from a collector. We thought you would enjoy having a commemorative print from it. This is the FIRST corporate seal that was created when they incorporated in 1926!

Check out the items now!

This is a damned great sale. Old Botcon stuff at way-less-than-ebay prices.

I got the Virulent Clone 2-pack for (relatively) dirt cheap prices.

I grabbed a set of those as well. They've become inexplicably tough to find. Was tempted by Ratchet and Flareup, but have to watch the budget. Would have loved to finish up my Funpub backlog all at once but had to use some self control.

Also getting a hookup on '06 Megs and Waspinator that they put up for the insane price of $300. Good buddy of mine got in on one today and only got it for the tech spec cards. Super duper freaking happy about it. Never thought I'd own those two :grin:

Wow! All the good stuff went SUPER-QUICK! Or at least all the stuff that goes for way too much on eBay went super-quick.

They should have just thrown everything on eBay instead. That way people wouldn't get really excited only to be met with extreme disappointment.

So annoyed. Saw this on my commute home. Rushed to my computer. Tried to order Games of Deception loose set & Punch/Counterpunch... both out of stock.

Predictable.

Oh well... I may as well pick up the boxed Games of Deception set...

Dammit! Most of the ones I wanted are gone. I wish they'd remove the listings for the ones that are out of stock. I kept seeing ones and would add them to my cart only for the message "Not enough stock" to keep appearing. :-x :-x :-x

It seems that they say "Status: Discontinued" next to the figures they are out of. I feel your frustration though.

The sale was quick... and I didn't get most of what I wanted, but hey, at least I have my Botcon Dreadwind & Bugbite. I got the Invasion loose set, too... As much as I hate to reveal my "scalper" colors, it makes me feel better that I can offset the Deception Boxset cost by ~$150 by selling the Invasion dudes individually.

Also, if anyone's interested in a set of 2007 boxed set Seekers... I'm selling!

Ugh.

And yes. That Tarantulus art is awesome. I'm really coming around, especially with the claw microns.

If Funpub is reading this, could I make a suggestion? I REALLY appreciate you selling these figures at a reasonable cost. But if you do something similar in the future, would you mind setting up a raffle instead?

I know that sounds crazy, but hear me out. The email said that you only had 1 of some sets. The people who were off work on the east coast had an unfair purchasing advantage compared to those on the west coast. People who didn't want ANY of these sets will still buy them up KNOWING they can almost double their money on eBay in a week. [If you don't believe me, look at the post directly above mine.] The fans who LOVE your figures, but can't/won't pay scalper prices are unable to get your products now.

Maybe next time, add a "Want to Purchase" button for these limited items? Not all the sets - just maybe the items that you have 10 or less of, especially the box sets. Wait a day or two, then pull a name from those that requested it. If you don't get enough "Wants" in that time period, then just put all of them for sale as a first come, first serve.

Also, in my rush up the stairs to order sets that were no longer in stock, I neglected to check the mailbox. Just walked downstairs to find Chromedome had arrived! Huzzah consolation prize!

Indeed, Stylors, arms AND legs are wrong.

Does anyone know a good way to fix it? Is a hairdryer in order, or are we basically stuck with the mismatched limbs?

I came late to the party. I was gonna buy the beast wars stuff just to have it. But all sold out. It would have been nice, but it's nothing I cant live without. I hope only real collectors got their hands on these. I hope the scalpers were all too busy at their day jobs flipping burgers, moping bathrooms, and bagging groceries.

Although I didn't want anything from the big sale I was very happy upon checking the mail. It was a big surprise to see TFSS #5. Finally after a year of waiting :BOT: Chromedome :BOT: and Stylor is here and they are super sweet! :APPLAUSE: Only 1 more to go now.

The sale WOULD happen to go live while I was at work many hours before my shift ended. :BANG_HEAD:

If it makes any of you feel better about missing out I read on twitter a scalper bought up a ton of stuff. Whoever suggested a raffle you might be on to something.
