    It doesn't say Dion to me at all, but I do like the scheme. Particularly the detailing on the car.

    Damn. I like that guy a LOT. Plus, it would help justify getting another Armada Hot Shot considering I still have my beloved original one (my first TF, so I like him even though he does admittedly suck).

    But $60 for membership kills the deal for me. I don't have the means as to getting to wherever the hell the next Botcon is unless it's somewhere within an hour's drive of Cincinnati, so I lose the discount there. Plus it seems this freebee figure doesn't come with either Jolt or the blasters, so it looses functionality on both counts.

    Wow, that looks really good, if only because it screams Windbreaker to me.

    My opinion on this completely depends on if we'll get the Henkei blasters. :/

    Does Dion come with missile launchers? I would prefer that over the mini con.

    Orange and blue are two colors that should NEVER be mixed, IMO.

    This reminds me a little of SG Prime in that the colors on the robot mode are nice, but it's the vehicle detailing that really makes it. I love the design on the door.

    As far as accessories go, I don't expect the Henkei blasters, and I wouldn't be surprised to see them not include Jolt just to keep the costs down. It's not like Jolt has any purpose with the figure or mold anyway.

    That does look quite nice; personally, however, I'm more interested in other club developments, such as whether the getting rid of Master Collector will lower membership prices since only half as many publications are being sent out.

    Robot mode doesn't look too bad and they did a good job balancing out the colours without making it look garish. I'm not too keen on the way the colours are laid out in vehicle mode, especially the way the Autobot symbols on the doors are broken up by that transformation joint. I do usually display my toys in robot mode, so the aesthetic of the vehicle mode isn't a huge problem, but this is still one of the worst TFU 2.0 molds...something that's not going to magically change if (if) they add missile launchers to it.

    This figure just isn't good enough to justify me renewing my Club membership for it, especially since the freebie is pretty much the only thing that's really attracted me to the Club. The only reason I'll be renewing for 2010 is if I have to in order to get P/CP.
