    Botcon registration just went up yesterday, so they're not thinking about these guys right now. Odd are they'll go on sale about two weeks before Botcon.

    FunPub did say something about putting their two exclusive club figures up for sale sometime in January, but we have no idea when exactly and with Botcon registration just going up it probably won't be right away...maybe month's end?

    I'm really thinking FunPub brought the awesome on this one and made a collector box with slots for each figure. Could end up being better than the Botcon set, and for a fraction of the price!

    I too am keeping track of these releases and will need a board member to help me out.

    I missed Punch/Counterpunch thanx for Anabolik1 for screwing me over.

    I do not want to miss these guys...for some reason I have always liked them and the mould being used is one of my favs as well.

    I don't think I saw this guy ever post again after the incident.

    He offered to buy me one. I paid him via paypal and then the BS began. Oh I ordered it and they sent me all the red Cyclonus figure, I need to get it fixed. Time passes. I got the replacement and it was ALL CYCLONUS' AGAIN!!! Total load of crap.

    Good news is I DID get my money back but what the dude did was use other people's money to get a bunch of P/CP's so he can flip them on ebay. YOu know what he goes for now!!!

    I'm not sure how big I am on the SG Drift, but Runamuck and Runabout are the best and second best exclusives so far for 2012.

    Yes, Runabout and SG Drift will be up for preorder at the end of the month. At least, that's the latest from tfc's twitter

    ...because their archaic software and system can't handle more than one task at a time.

    So how quick do the other two exclusives usually sell out? Do you get at least a day?

    IIRC you don't even get a day for the popular ones to sell out and I think RM and RB will be popular figures.

    On screen G1 character + the figure looks like the character + made by reusing a popular mould = fast sell out

    Do they automatically send you the free figure? or do you have to actively order it?

    ^ IF your membership is active as of, like, March 16 or thereabouts. So if you order Runabout when he goes up for sale, allegedly at the end of January, you'll automatically be buying a yearlong membership and getting Runamuck as well.

    But you can also order more than one figure right? As in you get your free Runabout with subscription and the option to buy additional figures?

    Also, because I don't follow the fan club. Is it available for Canadian fans yet? I know it use to not be available for Canadians.

    Thanx
