    According to Ganbo Store Blog:
    http://ameblo.jp/ganbo-store/entry-10207226260.html

    Q. I'll apply to Autobots card, but I want to Decepticon Micron and Quo card.
    A. Sorry, we can't provide any goodies of opposite faction to you. but you can purchase Exclusive Strafe whichever you are on.

    Q. is Strafe's number limited?
    A. No. it's production-on-order.

    Q. When can we see colored Strafe figure?
    A. No idea right now.

    Q. Any plans of another card member exclusive figures in the future?
    A. Yes. we'll notice members thru Basecamp when it comes.

    (note that Ganbo Store and TF Card are operated by same company, so it's kinda official Q&A.)

    This is exactly what is needed in today's credit crisis: collectors signing up for a credit card just to get the cards and the Mini-Cons :p 


    Now nobody can complain about BotCon exclusives being unfair anymore, because this credit card exclusive toy deal is positively *hardcore* by comparison :D

    theoretically, a credit card is free as long as you don't use it or use it and then pay off the total every month.

    Production on-order for strafe is nice. Likely going to run about the same as the Henkei Exclusives. If it's a technobot colored Cyclonus, I'm all over it. If it's G2-themed, I decide when I see it.

    No kidding! I can almost see the "True Fan" comments now; "You didn't sign up for both Japanese Visa Credit Cards to get the Minicons? You're no True Fan!"

    I don't think the Cyclonus mold would look good in G1 Scattorshot colors, I'm thinking it'll be the G2 Scattorshot, and look halfway decent. Not enough to apply for a Japanese Decepticon Credit Card, but decent.

    What the heck is this? I live in Japan and I'm clueless over here...

    I'm also thinking because of regions, all I can get is the page in Japanese. Are there any translations on this?

    I'm so lost...

    Same as any other card, you would need to be resident in the country it's issued in to apply.

    In order to apply for a credit card in Japan you *MUST* be able to read Japanese too. There is a contract that is required and if you can't read it then you are out of luck. You can't have anyone translate it for you either, you must be able to read all hiragana, katakana and kanji on the document on your own. So, you have to LIVE in Japan and READ Japanese characters.
    And the hoops continue for TF exclusives :banghead:

    This is a mistake a lot of people end up making and burning themselves on later. If you get a credit card and don't use it, it'll hurt your credit quite a bit.

    Strafe is going to be CRAZY expensive when he's released. Expensive on the secondary market and at retailers that have access to Japanese exclusives: TFSource, TemptingToyz, BBTS ect. If the price is right, I'm all over it.
