    I love it. From the head to the wheels, it emulates the G1 figure really well. I wish they'd kept the stickers in alt. mode a bit simpler, though (solid gold stripe around the skirt).

    Well, I guess I can stop my custom Runabout and Runamuck plans now.

    So, I'm unfamiliar with TFCC. If I join now, will I be able to get both Runabout and Runamuck?

    Yep. Unless the one Runabout sells out before you can buy him : P

    Shattered Glass Drift? Meh. I would have preferred a Shattered Glass Blurr if they wanted to repaint that mold. The placeholder image shows the RtS Tracks mold for Runamuck, and I would think the same goes for Runabout. Does that mold really suit the duo? I actually would not mind the re-use of the Classics Sideswipe mold for them.

    I have no doubt though once the mock-ups are in they will look really awesome.

    One is being offered as the free figure for signing up. The other is a separate purchase.

    I just hope that we get fair warning like we did with RJ & Cheetor I'm good. I love me some battle chargers.

    The one thing I don't get about shattered glass drift is y they didn't just paint him in his deadlock color scheme but I do like how he looks

    I think that was the warning. I would think they're going up sometime on Monday.

    I wonder if they cut down the production run on the Free figures. Dion is still available, maybe FunPub is cutting down quantities?

    well SG: drift is clearly meant to be a Classics rep of TF: Primes knockout.... the colours match up perfectly so it cant be a coincidence.

    I'm not trying to nerd rage over this topic, but why isn't Drift the freebie next year? I understand that FunPub probably didn't want the club exclusives to both be the same mold, but I don't like the concept of getting half a two man team then having to buy the other half. Though I probably shouldn't complain about free toys :)

    I believe the club is actually using the Wheeljack remold.

    i'm glad one is a freebie, makes it cheaper to get them, i'd rather get one from membership and have to buy the other than have to buy membership and THEN buy both seperately

    and we already got SG Blurr, using the armada/cybertron blurr mold with a new head in 2008

    With exception of Sideburn, I don't know where some of you are getting the idea that Runabout and Shattered Glass Drift will be available soon? They are 2012 exclusives. Exclusives are usually available for pre-order after the 2012 membership drive. All FP said they are doing is revealing the mock up decos to start the fall membership drive.
