    I just received this email:



    Hello all,

    Due to the high bandwidth demand for the Transformers' Club and BotCon products, we had been forced to take the store offline.
    Currently, we are awaiting sizing by our ISP to move the store to a larger server. We don't have a time frame on this yet.
    In the meantime, we are deactivating the BotCon and Club Exclusive products and we are turning the store back on so that people can join the club.

    Thanks for your patience and support.

    We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your enthusiasm about these products and will provide you with an update when these products are available agian.

    Brian

    They should just turn the fax machine back on and take orders that way.

    That's a joke TFCC - please don't actually attempt that. Or do, it would be pretty funny.

    Things did seem to run more smoothly back when they did it that way. Plus, the threat of someone breaking into their online shop to steal personal info was non-existent back then.

    Based on their recent performances, the amount of people doing that probably won't absorb much bandwidth.

    ^ That's a pretty distorted perspective. There's tons of criticism about the Club here. It's just that some people get really really MAD BRO about it and threads just become pages of toxic bitchery.

    I swear, it's almost like they enjoy the abuse and provoke people to get more of it. I've seen bigger places go out of business for lesser things, so it absolutely boggles the mind as to how or why these guys are even still allowed to run this shoestring operation.

    Still can't handle your own website, eh TFCC? Maybe you should just sell your shit on ebay.

    Got my Runamuck in the mail today as well. I went with Priority Mail if that helps anyone guess shipping duration.

    At least my spare Runabout is happy now...lol
