    On the TFCC site, they've got a picture up of Scourge in robot mode along with the rules for the sub, looks like they might be serious about getting this going soon.

    Looks like the cost for all the figures together is $282. When they put a post like this up for the GIJoe FSS it went live later that day.

    With the Joe subscription, it was the "cost" plus the shipping and a $3 processing fee. I can't remember how much the shipping was though.

    so, if we pay the 282$ plus 3$ per figure so that's another 18$ so even 300$? And then you get all 6..nothing more to pay from there? What if you only want one figure? Does it have to be an all or nothing deal with them?

    This might be a silly question but is the $282 an annual fee to be part of that or does it apply as long as you're a TFCC member?

    The $3 is a transaction fee, you don't have to pay it per figure, but the only option they're giving right now is to order all 6. so $285 before shipping.

    Not quite sure where the $3 per figure is coming from. There is a $3 charge per processing time if you go with installments. So the total (prior to shipping) would be $285 ($282 +$3). If you go with installments, you'd have to pay an extra $6 ($3 for each of the 2 other payment processes).

    As I only want one or two of these figures I think I'll pass and wait to pick them up on ebay. I'm sure there will be pleanty of people buying a full set but not wanting a Circuit for me to pick it up!

    Interested in only half the figs, I may just get them on the after market. BBTS will probably end up ordering a few subscriptions so that's another route.

    $282 PLUS SHIPPING, and that's shipping each unit, and have you seen what the club charges for shipping one Deluxe?

    Yes!

    Yes!

    Can't wait!

    So they're coming in pairs then? They don't say how often they'll ship.. Two every other month? Too bad we won't have a bonus figure...

    WHy would they advertize a $3 service fee when NO ONE charges service fees for onlien purchases. I guess TFCC cares not about their image as cash grabbers.
