    Nice redeco but the cream of the plastic doesn't seem to match that paint on the roof.

    Can someone comment on this?

    I can't wait to get this figure!! I'm thinking/hoping it either is just the lighting in the pics or it isn't noticeable in person. I could barely tell what you meant by looking at these pics.

    EDIT: On a side note, I forgot about this site! I am glad to revisit it!! Always liked it!

    I imagine they'll start shipping any day now since people already have advance copies to review?

    I hope so as I'd like to get all my info off the TFCC ASAP once I know Runamuck has been shipped.

    If they've got review samples in hand, it's definitely a good sign that they'll ship soon.

    Main question is if they'll ship before Botcon or not.

    I asked them on Twitter this morning, whether they would ship before or after Botcon. The reply was "We'll have details on that in the next couple of weeks."

    If they're not going to announce it for another two weeks, that would place the announcement in the first week of April. By that time, Botcon would only be a couple of weeks away so I seriously doubt they would ship that close to Botcon, since they still have to make final arrangements and set everything up for the convention.

    However, if that's the case, why not just say "They'll ship after Botcon, details coming in the next couple of weeks".



    EDIT: Unless they split up the shipment like they did with Over-Run, ship out some now and the rest after Botcon.

    But remember, Botcon is in Dallas, Tx and there base of Forth Worth, TX. They dont have to do traveling.

    ....this is true. Totally forgot about this.

    I suspect that Runamuck's shipping in the same batch from the factory as the boxsets, myself.

    It would make sense. They always seem to ship with either the club or botcon exclusives and they obviously have some in hand. Certainly it would be better to be sent before as afterwards it will be Iacon packages and then prep for Joecon. I could easily see it getting into July before they get sent if its after Botcon.

    I thought I remembered reading where it was in the same shipment. Or was that the rest of the Over-Run and SG Drift?

    Oh man, I can't wait to get mine. I'm not so bothered by the discrepancy in in the color of the body and the roof and I expected it.

    i dont care about the color discrepancy. This figure looks incredible, and the white looks delectable, like White Chocolate delectable. Cannot wait to get info on when he's due to ship

    The 4 uses of this mold have absolutely been repainting/retooling at it's best.

    By that I mean they were able to change the look and feel of this mold just enough to give it a completely different vibe with each use.

    Also, I like everything about TFCC Runamuck/Runabout but, why have a rubsign at all when you have a big honkin'-ass Decepticon logo on your hood/legs....kinds defeats the purpose of the rubsign doesn't it?
