    So I've been reading up, and I'm just wondering what are people's overall experiences with the Collector's club more importantly is it worth the membership fee? I know there's the free figures, and some of the discounts here and there but is it worth $40 awesome? thanks guys!

    Actually- this is a question I want to know too, considering that I was going to get involved using the money from Income Economy Stimulus Package....

    If you plan to go to Botcon and/or buy the club exclusives, Yes definately

    If you're doing it for just the free figure and the 6 comics with newsletter, not so much, but it's still not a bad deal, unless you live outside the US or canada.

    Overall I've had a good experience with the club thus far. I've been a member since it started back in 2005.

    Yea see I wanna totally get some exclusives(is astrotrain still available?) and since i'll be graduated by the time Botcon comes around next year, I'll actually have money to go, and possibly go all out. Sweet jazz guess i'm joining up.

    Actually, in regards to the free figure, I think this year is worth it just for the figure since it'll be for the deluxe size body for the combiner (as oppose to the basic size limbs in previous years).

    IMO you can just buy a toy of your choosing for the $40 (including the stupid combiner piece) and you're already about $15 ahead.

    The club was the most worthless thing I ever spent money on in this hobby. Granted, I don't go to Botcon.

    for the exclusive figures--yes....
    the clasiffied paper part is not worth the paper it is printed on...the colored mag they send out every few months does have quality stuff....

    so YES and NO...
    personally i will reup this year to finish the bot combiner guy then await to see next years verdict as to yes or no....
