    So does any one think that means we’ll get 2 parts of the combiner mould this year or a limb and another tf?

    The club exclusives in question are most likely additional figures to be sold through the store, not the free combiner piece members get for registering for next year.

    They have to go to Takara for any exclusive, no matter what. Takara is the one who actually has to send the thing into production.

    I like how they said they are flying out to a city. Chances are they're lookin at a different location from Texas!

    Email Brian, he's usually good about replacing missed issues.

    As for the exclusive, I do hope those of us who got our membership extended because of OTFCC will get the exclusive pro bono with our second year of membership.

    It's not working on me. Shipping from MC is horrific (about $25 to send Skyfall to the UK; extra if you want bubble wrap); I ended up buying it at Botcon, so I didn't have to pay such a ridiculous price. Also, the saving I got on prereg for Botcon last year wasn't really worth it, since I had to fly to another continent to get there.
    Unless the price of membership for non-US members has drastically dropped, I don't think I'll be renewing.

    A related question just came to mind. We have now been told that Hasbro has approved the designs for these 2 exclusives, and that Takara now has to confirm that the molds are available. Only then will the exclusives be announced to the club.

    Is it safe to assume that this is in direct contrast to the operating procedures of the old 3H club? It seems to me that if/when FP annouces something, you can be sure that it will eventually happen, whereas we later learned that 3H had barely gotten the first stages of approval for their Skywarp exclusive when the exclusive was announced to the club. Is this a fair assessment?

    If this is true, I'd just like to uphold this as a good aspect of how FP runs things (since I've been on record for criticizing them on several other matters).

    I have always been told that they don't announce releases unless they are 100% sure the figure mold can be used. If they announced it before that point, you could run into the problem of the mold being in use for something else.
