    Got an email from the club a few minutes ago:

    There is some other good info in there, but I've zeroed in on the pre-order date info.

    If Sideburn is shipping after BotCon, I'd assume these will ship after as well.

    More specific release date for club exclusive preorders

    EDIT: Sorry didn't see this thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...g2-ramjet-pre-order-dates-revealed-sorta.html . Beat me to it XD

    TFCC just sent out a member email stating that "In order not to interfere with any religious holidays this month (Passover and Easter) we won't put the pre-orders up for Transtech Cheetor and Ramjet until the last week of the month."

    Also the "FREE Membership Sideburn figures will ship after BotCon."

    When Botcon updates were coming fast and furious, it was preferred to keep all updates in the same thread. One can only assume the same here.

    Well now we know from TCC's Twitter that they'll officially be up on April 25th, the the exact date. Not much more specific, but it's a concrete date now. The TCC (The_TCC) on Twitter

    Yeah, that makes sense, because they are coming fast and furious, as in by the minute. But when they are about a week apart, it doesnt make sense. I see a thread that I already looked at a week before, and think "Oh, zombie thread" and dont bother looking into it. Plus the title doesnt even say that the dates are revealed in the thread, so how would I know to look in that thread for the dates?

    Its understandable for Botcon and such when there is a "Botcon 2011 News" thread, where they are constantly updating the first post, but when its "New pictures of G2 Ramjet" and the first post isnt even updated, and someone randomly posts the release date in the thread, its off topic, and people wouldnt think of looking there for it, unless they happen to see people talking about it, in which case they have to dig through the rest of the thread to actually find the pictures/news info.

    For non-rich folks like me, having to drop $100+ 30 days before Botcon kinda stinks. I wish they'd wait a couple months.

    If you read the tweet it sounds like they are saying that they will open up for orders the week of the 25th, no guarantees its going to be Monday.

    Yeeaaaah. /agree /signed

    I wants me the awesome plastic crack, but digging into the BotCon budget hurts a mighty bit. I wish they would spread them out throughout the year. Do one in February, then Botcon a few months later followed by another in September or something.

    Have we gone so far as a society that people can't even put together all the clues that are contained in a single not-even-a-full-140-characters tweet?

    "Pre-orders start the last week of April" + "The last week of April starts on the the 25th." =/= "Pre-orders start on April 25th"

    While I agree with your logic, but why go out of their way to specifically emphasize the 25th? If I pulled out a calendar, I would see the last full week of April actually starts on Sunday, April 24th. I know their work week probably starts on Monday but it just seems odd to include a date if it wasn't important.

    Why would they go put of their way to specifically emphasize the "last week of April" if it is indeed the 25th?

    They called out the date because some people might not understand when the last week of April is. Yes, some people are that stupid. Calling it out means minimizing the number of people throwing a fit the week before when pre-orders are a no-show.
