    Even allowing for each magazine making this more than 4 (which I see as a stretch, mind you), I agree. Huge?

    You know, I like the fig. I had skipped Armada and Energon, but with Airazor, Sky-Byte, and Skyquake sitting on my shelves I have a pretty healthy respect for the line (at least the Decepticon molds) in retrospect.

    I wonder if Airazor is the reason they seem to scared to make more of items - like a lot of people wish.

    If Airazor had been a convention piece and Laserbeak and Buzzsaw had been the club toy I bet they'd have sold out ages ago.

    It's sort of sad as it shows how G1 obsessed the fandom remains which is a pity if your someone who'd really welcome a Beast Wars fan-add-on kit from someone - they must be concerned no one would buy it.

    Much as i'd like things guns for TM Rattrap & Depth Charge, Transmetal 2 Driver, Rampage's spark sliver etc...

    We are at well under 100 Airazor's left... Clear them out just in time for Runabout and Shattered Glass Drift!

    I wouldn't say it's the only reason, but it certainly seems clear that it was a major factor. Indeed, I'd posit that it's at least as much to do with the numbers themselves as any quality of the figure itself that makes it desirable (or undesirable, as the case may be). They made 2000 of those, and it's taken more than 5 years to work through them. For that point in time (the year 2005, said in my best Caroli impersonation), it was too many, and once it's clear that something's not selling out quickly, anything that's left will take much longer to sell.

    Indeed, few toys are being made in quite those numbers even now, although I'd say that a figure of Airazor's type (that is, not necessarily a "slam dunk obvious"-type figure) would do better than Airazor did back then, and a 2000-figure run is definitely looking to be more common going forward.

    To compare the sizes of exclusive runs, may I suggest The Unofficial Transformers Club and Convention Exclusive Data Sheet (now at its new location!)?

    The club store still lists Yugoslavia instead of Serbia in the countries' list and shipping costs cannot be calculated for Yugoslavia (the country hasn't existed for a while now).

    I checked out the shipping costs for some neighboring countries and the cheapest option is USPS Express Mail International - at $37 for a single deluxe. Pete, if you want me (and possibly other fans from Serbia) to join the club and buy figures, you need to offer cheaper shipping options - First Class for a deluxe is about $15, and Priority is $20.

    Also, $3 for bubble-wrap? What?

    still a pity it took so long to sell out. I bought one ASAP. pity more didn't (Course energon slugslinger IS one of the hardest TF EVER)

    Yeah shipping charges always have seemed to be the achilles heel of the club.
