    So it seems the TCC's gonna be getting these guys out earlier than ever...

    And as an aside, this essentially means everyone who orders Runabout WILL get Runamuck since you have to sign up for the club to order.

    Still not 100% sure if I'll renew this year. If the BotCon set is very, very good, then I will sign up...

    Excellent, glad to hear these are expected reasonably soon. I'm probably going to pass on SG Drift, but Runabout is one I definitely don't want to miss.

    So, just for clarification, does this mean people with pre-existing Club memberships, at the time the figures go up for preorder, will have priority on ordering them (or advanced notice or something)? Or will it be like with the previous exclusives, where non-members can just buy a Club membership at the same time as they pre-order the figure? If it's the latter, I see no reason to renew/join now, rather than just waiting until these toys come up for pre-order and getting a membership simultaneously.

    So if your membership is up in March, obviously you need to renew for the freebie, but do you need to renew before Jan 1st to get these two?

    Anyone with an active membership at the time that these go up for sale can pre-order them...

    PETE, how will the preorder work?

    Is it on a one for one basis? As in, if you purchace 3 runamucks you can preorder 3 runabouts or are numbers unlimited?

    I may be wrong with the names and who is first but I hope the question got across.

    Allright Pete, I've rejoined after a couple years absence to acquire Runamuk and Runabout. Here's hoping the preorder for Runabout lasts at least a few days so I can acquire one at work since I have no home internet.

    Man, this dilemma of joining the club is so difficult. I need Runamuck and Runabout for the Classics collection but i don't like paying a lot to join and get one of them, i also want SG Drift but not so much. The Price to join the club outisade the U.S and then buying the figs themselves are quite expensive.

    I'm cheap so spare me. :p
