    Botcon 2009 Razorclaw and Elita 1 are now on sale at the Transformers Club Store

    Botcon 2009 Razorclaw & Elita 1

    So if you didn't have enough already, now get them for cheaper. Oh... boy.

    Any bets as to which figures sell out first? Astrotrain & Arirazor or Razorclaw & Elita?

    News is the wrong spot for sure, but I think it's fine as its own thread since it's not one of the big brick & mortar retailers.

    Elita & Razorclaw are fantastic designs, I strongly recommend anyone who is interested to snag a set. Best versions of their respective molds released to date.

    im seriously thinking of joining the club if the toy they are releasing is decent. Has it been proven to be Punch/Counterpunch?

    I guess all that talk about Razorclaw being highly desired didn't account for how bad the Leobreaker mold is. Seriously, the G1 Razorclaw is a MUCH better toy.

    Seems its a matter of FP grossly overestimating the demand, or at least the number willing to pay premium club prices.

    I sure feel silly for dropping by ebay for them after the last Botcon, I'll tell ya that much. :)

    Hmm... I wonder if I could sell Elita-1. I really want Razorclaw but have no interest in her.

    Not as good a deal as the discount on Astrotrain and Airazor, but not bad either. If I had some more funds available this month, and there wasn't so much non-TF stuff to get soon, I'd probably get both sets.

    Punch/Counterpunch is slated to be released by the Club at some point but, IIRC, it won't be the "free" membership figure.

    I picked up the Astrotrain/Airazor deal a couple of days ago. I effing love the Astrotrain! Paint scheme, mold, box art . . . very nice!

    As far as the Elita 1/Razorclaw, well Elita 1 I'm pretty fond of, but I really don't like the Razorclaw mold. IDK, I guess it's worth picking up.

    Makes me think they're trying to cover their asses after all the QC problems that were being reported.

    Was thinking the exact opposite. I actualy want an Elita-1 to match up with my BotCon Alpha Trion.
    BTW, anyone know if the scales would work together?

    I think they look well together on my shelf. YMMV. She's about 60% as tall as him, he's a Voyager as tall as an Ultra.
