    just got my email from the club....


    The pre-orders are online now. Please try to place your order on the web as to minimize phone calls.

    Products are expected to arrive to us by the end of Sept. I'll let you know when they get on the boat!

    Thanks for your patience. We wanted to get the new credit card system running before we started taking orders as it will help our international friends.

    transformersclub.com/shop select the pre-order check box and search to find both items.

    Thanks for your support!

    I really want Nightbeat and would join if I knew for sure about Botcon next year. Does membership permit a discount on non-attendee sets? (I realize that information is somewhere, just hoping someone knows for sure.)

    I'd be all over the Seacons if munneh wasn't so tight.
    And if I was a member.

    It worked for me now! I just used a different web browser. I used IE instead of Firefox.

    Same here; I can't afford the charge on my card this month so I'll be waiting until at least next week to put down an order. If they didn't charge until shipping (like BBTS and Amazon), I'd be all over the Seacons right away.

    Does anyone know if this is a case where they only have a certain number of these figures available, or will they be manufacturing to fill pre-orders (plus maybe a few extra)?

    Thanks for the heads up Benzo, damn Firefox! I still need to check with TFCC to see if those two orders went through (used a Cdn CC for one then tried with a US CC when the 1st one did not go through)

    If I remember correctly, they're making 1500 Nightbeats and 1200 Seacon sets. Order's already been done, so no more, no less.

    Frankly, unless there's some HUGE hidden demand for these that I'm not seeing, and seeing how Astrotrain & Airazor have sold, I'd say there's no particular rush.

    I'm pretty sure this is going to be the same as any other club exclusive, and produced for a predetermined number, not made-to-order.

    Arrgh, Beastbox-and-sunlink'd!

    I used Firefox w/ no problems.

    Grabbed Nightbeat, love him, and look forward to him, I would like the Seacons as the box alone is too beautiful, but, I just can't swing it right now.
