    uuhhhrrrgh. Thank goodness I skipped this one, I might have done a facepalm that could have been construed as unbelievably rude.

    The excuse for the lack of e-registration is absolutely preposterous. I really don't know how I can expand on that.

    Still, good to hear that the Club Store won't be blitzkrieg'd by another SDCC exclusive.

    This can be summed up by the fact that it took over ten minutes to convince my wife that they didn't CURRENTLY have online registration. She just couldn't conceive of a project the magnitude of BotCon that DIDN'T run based off of online registration. She simply couldn't wrap her head around it.

    I can't imagine the time wasted on trying to keep this offline. Every year, having to go through form after form that was faxed, or crumpled up in an evelope, and trying to make sense of it all. My mind simply can't comprehed why moving that mess online would make things MORE complicated. Methinks someone doesn't believe in computers. I wonder if he still believes the majority of the Transformers fandom doesn't have access to the Internet?

    I want Alt Rodimus! First BotCon exclusive Classics now this! No SDCC exclusives fom the collector's club really sucks! Is it really too much to ask for toys of my favorite characters at an afordable price? Excuse the rant. I'm just upset.

    A clarification:

    This is incorrect. Ben Yee said that that was what he was planning to do with the Decepticons in the Descent to Evil set, but many of the molds like Insecticon weren't available, only Buzzclaw was.

    Oh, and Aaron Archer told me after the Hasbro Panel that it's pretty likely the Seacons are going to be club exclusives.

    I've been thinking a lot recently about getting the Seacons. Are there any pictures of the unreleased Seacon repaints? Any idea if re-release would be all 6 or just 5 (as in the God Neptune version)?



    Guess I'm gonna have to join the club soon.

    When I spoke to Pete, he said that they didn't really have plans to make Elita-1. That was before the panel, so hopefully they've changed their minds

    Me too. Suddenly that exorbitant membership fee seems worth it.

    Maybe I'm mistaken but wasn't Cosmos planned as a Classics and not a Titanium?
    Either way I'm praying that they follow through and release them thru the club

    I hope they change there minds about an Elite-One/Cybertron Thunderblast club exclusive. Actually I was hoping E 1 would have been pack with Alpha Trion.

    He was origionally supposed to be a Classics, he was then switched to the Titanium line, and then he was canceled from that line. They've said that they'll try to work him in someplace in the future. I'm thinking we'll see him in the future Classics 2.0 line. Maybe not in the first installment of it, but possibly in the later parts of the line. I honestly kinda like the coloring on thos Piranhacons. I'm kinda hoping that they do make them now, lol.

    You know, I really don't want to see those four Titaniums unless they get better engineering. I know everone says that the problems with the Titaniums was their diecast, but really it goes deeper with almost every mold. There's always some Achiles Heel that kind of makes it great, but not as good as it could have been.

    For example, Rodimus Prime. He's hollow in the center. Which means if you try to do dynamic poses with him you end up stairing at a gapping hole in his side.

    Ultra Magnus' (who everyone is clamouring for) would have excellent articulation... but too much of his armor has been molded in such a way that it limits what you can do with him. Thankfully, I got him through BBTS instead of the insane eBay prices I've seen for this guy of late. NOT WORTH EBAY PEOPLE!

    I could go on, but I'll just say that while those molds look good and I wouldn't mind them being released in Classics 2.0... I hope that Hasbro does some engineering overhauling to them first.
