    Just got an email from the TFCC.

    The new shipment of Punch/Counterpunch figures still haven't arrived, so they're not taking new orders until August. Orders will be limited to 1 per person, and only orders for people who haven't ordered previously will be accepted. If you try to order again, or order more than one, the order will be cancelled minus a cancellation fee.

    Also, they've added another hotel agreement for Botcon 2011. Check the Botcon site for more details on that.

    Good to see a limit set. I expect they will sell out in seconds.

    Now, should I wait until I order P/CP to order a subscription or should I get one sooner? Or does it work that I'm automatically charged a sub as a non-club member if I go and order P/CP?

    The new BotCon block is already sold out for June 1 and 5, so booking through the website will not give you the discounted rate of $139/night. I had to call to make my reservation in order to get the discounted rate for 5/31 and 6/1-4.

    Better not delay in making your own reservations.

    The email mentioned that the second run is 300 pieces. At one per person that will cover plenty of ground. I have to think most of the people who want the toy already have it.

    A lot of people missed out on this. Not sure if it's 300 people but it is still a pretty good number minus the ones who are turned off by the small head and those who bought them off ebay already.

    I don't mind the delay, as long as one of you guys who ordered 30 the first time around figures out a way to skirt the system and order 30 more...

    Me? Bitter? Nah...

    I may try to score one as I am considering joining the TFCC anyway.

    Until I hear news of a larger head (official or unofficial/3rd party), I won't waste my time.

    The small head isn't that bad. Yeah it's not perfect, but the overall effect is still great. The TFCC did a great job and you really shouldn't let the head's size turn you off of this figure.

    When I'm paying around $90 (after member ship fees), I shouldn't have to put up with that crap. That's a lot of money to spend on a figure with a substandard head. Not to mention the paint apps for Punch's side are horrible.

    The head is a bit annoying, but if I get the chance, I will still order another one (local got me one of them, but now I have a membership). I am too much of a whore for classics, and need one on both the D-Con and Autobot shelves.

    Can someone please front-page this info. I already asked Brian and he said it would be coding nightmare to change the club store system to limit to one for just PCP. They've already extended the run and they're going to have to do a lot of work to make sure people only get one order and yet there's still going to be people who try to order more then one and get angry at the club.

    I wasn't able to get one the first time so I will try and get one as soon as they have them in stock. I don't mind the small head since I will be keeping him in the box.
