or is it going to be an extra toy you have to buy for like 40 bucks?
It's not the "feebie" figure.
there hasnt been any word on the freebie in the mag?
and it sure as hell ain't going to cost $40....try maybe $60 or more....
Not yet. An update was promised soon. Hopefully we'll P/CP, the freebie and the 2nd exclusive all at once.
thanks, and the nightbeat was 40
Nightbeat was $48 for members.
I will rejoin the club, just to get this figure. I hope they make plenty.
How much is the membership fee?
About 42... maybe 48? Can't remember.
And yeah, Nightbeat was 48 and for non members I think he was an additional 20 or maybe a little less.
is it worth the money to join the club? ive been thinking about it.
I want to know how many pieces will be made before i plan to order.
how do nonmembers get one? I don't really want to spend the membership fees PLUS the cost of Punch.
I'd join but I haven't like any box sets since the Thrust/Dirge/Thundercracker set.
You can still get one as a non member but you would have to spend an extra $40 since that is the cost of the membership. Say P/CP is $60 for members then for non members it would be $100. Either way, you HAVE to spend the cost of membership fee plus the cost of P/CP.
The TFCC keeps the production numbers of Club exclusive figures confidential, unless they are BotCon limited sets. They did not tell us how any Seacon sets were made before they sold out. If you really want the toy, just buy it. Otherwise, you do not really want it at all.
It only worth the money to join the club if you really want a particular toy at the lowet price possible from them.
No they do not keep them confidential. They said at Botcon 2007 they made 2,000 Astrotrains and Air Razors each. They said they made 1,500 Nightbeats and 1,200 Seacon sets (this might have been at Botcon 2009, or earlier I forget). They definitely did say at one point or another how many they made of each.
Each freebie is limited to 3,000.
You can confirm as such here. TFArchive - Transformers Toys
International prices are higher. You may be better off getting a US club member to help you out. Try to find a club member in Texas since Fort Worth is where FunPub ships out from and the initial shipping cost will be a little less.
No you don't - all you HAVE to do is get in good with a member and have them order one for you. That's what I plan on doing (assuming they don't limit him to one per member).

40USD for the base level membership in the US. The First Class membership only gets your magazine shipped out faster.
Alone, not so much. If you plan on buying any of the figures, yes. If you plan on going to BotCon then heck yes. Generally the non-member mark-up for BotCon is 50 dollars, so you save more than you spent to be a member.
Please note this is all assuming that you are a US resident.
