    I am sure you can order a non attendee set from the TFCC sometime in the next few months. Just keep checking the news section and front page for details. Perhaps someone would be kind enough to pick up a set for you who will be attending. Right now it is 50/50 that I attend this year otherwise I would pick one up for you!

    Look at the brochure, come on man.

    Iacon package is 340$ for TCC members and 410 for non-members.

    Or you can join the club now for $40, then order it for $340. That price includes shipping to your house. If someone buys it for you, you'll have to pay them shipping on top of that which will get you darn close to the $380 it will cost to do it yourself. Especially if you give them a few bucks for their trouble ( which you should since it's a huge favor you ask ).

    Yes you can get one for $410. If you are lucky enough that someone is actually willing to wait in line for you for hours and then sell you the set for the exact same price that they paid, is asking a bit much IMHO, so no. Why not pay the $40 club membership fee, which entitles you to the clubs "free" figure (Runamuck or Runabout, I forget which one) and get the boxset for $340 ($40 + $340 = $380)? Don't understand why anyone would pay the $410 price.

    *EDIT - IG beat me to it, lol :D

    I forgot to include the part about the free figure. He'd be stupid NOT to join the club and order himself. I'm going, but here's what it would cost for me to pick it up for him.

    Set $340
    Shipping $20 ( at least, it's a big box )
    My fee $20 ( sure, I'm already in line, but that box will be taking up room in my suitcase thus limiting how much I can buy for myself at the con. )

    Total $380. Same price. Plus, he get's a free toy if he joins the club, so that's the better deal. He can keep it or sell it to lower his overall investment.

    I'm more looking forward to the set just for Overlord and Metalhawk! I'll figure out how to incorporate the Shattered Glass guys into my collection with Reprolabels I'm sure.

    There is not one mold out there that would make a proper Overlord. But I still want to see what they do.

    I'm glad that I'm not the only one thinking this. Perceptor would of been an awesome SG soundwave. Infact I may just do that repaint myself...
