One of the things they also talked about was that the movie's been a huge recruiting tool for the club, and that they expect the membership to pass the GI Joe Club sometime in the next month or two.I take care of people who jump out of planes and kill foreigners for a living. I have the best job in the world.
They also said that the website was being worked on (and that they'd been "working on it for two and a half years") but that they'd just been too busy with other stuff. I personally would really, really like to see their site get a facelift. I feel like if we can have fansites that look as good as they do, the Club has no reason not to look really professional.
Feedback here! Criminals are HOT.
DO YOU LOVE SPIDERUS PRIME?

Good news about the titaniums, tho'. And possibly the Seacons. Why the heck they didn't make Alpha Trion available online instead of (eventuall) Elita-1 I can't comprehend, especially since he's not part of the Classics/Marvel G1 continuity. Seems odd somehow. At least they made Weirdwolf and Huffer. And a reborn deluxe Insecticon set seems real promising to me, but afterwards, make a couple boxsets of all Autobots to balance 'em out some like with a reborn Dinobots set or something.

With regard to the Titaniums, probably the coolest mold is Cosmos. I think it was said that he was originally supposed to be a Classic. Personally, if it would lower production costs, I wouldn't mind these molds produced in all plastic.
As far as a leader sized toy goes, I'd only want this if it would be a really cool looking character. However, my general preference is, the more characters the better. I don't like sacrificing other "character slots," just to get a really large toy. There are some toys that would be just as good if not better it they were smaller.

If the molds on the titaniums were to be more steardy, I wouldn't mine seeing them made as classics. The cosmos looks awesome shame it keeps getting canceled. I am also glad to see the classics like is being continued....awesome news. I am very curious as to the deluxe insecticons thing is...very interesting.Take a shot for every pouch Liefield draws on a character. Great now you have alcohol poisoning.

Well, Hasbro has somewhat redeemed themselves in my eyes. Still not happy they're cancelling the Titanium line, but bringing back Classics makes up for it! Now, as long as we eventually see those cancelled Titanium figures (Shockwave!) at retail, I will currently be pretty happy with them.

Let's see. Connecticon, a SMALL general nerd convention in Connecticut has had online con registration at least since 2005, and probably before that. It doesn't have anywhere near the time of existence Botcon does, nor the press, yet it can do electronic and Botcon can't?The Toyniverse Plot: Its like a Kevin Smith movie with toys! And not half as good! http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showth...39#post1357939
Seacons: Hated the G1 scheme, but would love em in their Beast Wars 2 colorscheme. It was pretty!
Possible Titaniums for the club: As long as they aren't more than 40. Better yet, make em plastics for 20 in plain white boxes since we have been constantly told its the packaging that makes em expensive.
Con Sets with Leaders: Stop with boxes entirely! Go back to the ala carte method with small boxes for each figure and let us pick and choose what we want. 240 bucks or more for a con set is highway robbery, tiny print runs or not! What was so awful about the Mega and Deluxe singles method the Beast Era Botcons had? Geez!
Takara's issues: Don't like small runs? SUURE. They just don't like small runs for us westerners is all. THE HORROR OF MAKING EXTRA CASH FOR VERY LITTLE WORK!
