we have received an update from the Transformers Collector's Club - the extremely popular club exclusive toy, Punch / Counterpunch, will be going up for order with a second run at some point later this week. Please check out the text of the message below - especially the part about how if you have ordered one before, you will not be eligible to order another one now.

Punch/Counterpunch will be available this week to order. This is a restricted item and you need to read the product description below before you place an order. If you have ordered one in the past, you are not eligible to order this product.

Please do not call and ask us when this will go online as we want to make this as fair to everyone as possible. As soon as we have verified the shipment we will place it online.

Please do not call to be put on an order list as we are not creating one. If you call to place an order once they go live, we do not guarantee you a place in line. The products are on a first come/first served basis with the online orders placed by members, taking priority over any orders called in.

Nice. I'm glad they're not allowing people that have already bought one or more to try and purchase this run.

%25 fee for canceled orders? Waiting for the inevitable crying to start....

Here's a hint. Don't put in an order when you know you are breaking the "rules".

I'm going to at anyone who ends up paying this fee and ends up complaining about it here.

Good I can pick one up for myself now.
LatinJEM777
Good thing I bought 2 for myself in the first run!
Thelbert
Argh! Too much awesome stuff this month! Glad I'm getting a second shot at ordering this guy. Hopefully I can pick him up. (doubtful.)
simplygriff
The completionist in me says pick one up since I missed it the first time. Hopefully I can get my hands on a custom head...

I was thinking of buying one to scalp this time around since I got one from another member last time...


Kidding, I'm not a complete douchebag. Good luck to those who missed out!

Anyone want to order me one ? ;_;

The restriction makes this feel like it was put together by mirror-universe-Mattel.

C'mon give Mattel credit, they lowered the limit from 10 to 6 for the SDCC sets. Decreased scalping by 40%!




No? That's not how that works? Huh.....

To Those who missed it the first time around, I want to say take this chance and get one. He's a neat bot/con umm bot.

How much is this guy?

I see these figures as a either:
1) A new run of figures and hopefully any QC issues were fixed OR
2) They went through their QC rejects and found the best 300 to sell.

I'm REALLY hoping for option #1...

3) They ordered production of 300 more with the same toolings as the first release.

Which Punch/Counterpunch is this? Is this a reissue of the G1 mold? I'm very much interested in G1 mold. Sorry, I don't know of any other P/C.

Repaint with a new two-sided head of the Universe 2.0 Sunstreaker/Sidesipe mold.

Sigh... tough decision... $99 for a deluxe figure?

And TFCC members, help me out with the details... If I wanted to get this reissue, I would need to sign up for a membership nowish ($40) and hope to be on time to get my preorder in whenever it opens this week? Seems... tricky.

This is a nice idea but they should have probably put a limit on the original run as well (i see nothing wrong with people having 2 or 3 to display in different modes. Was referring to the people with 10+ orders lol).

Yes, but if you go ahead and sign up your membership should be immediate. I'm pretty sure mine was when I signed up back in February.

Wait a minute,.. so this is $140 if you're not already a member?

No. I believe its 59 member, 89 non member.

No, that is the e-bay price.

Members pay $59.99 I think?

Got it. Thanks.

Then for $90 you get the toy, but for $100 you get the toy and a membership. No brainer.

..or the iGear price

They're actually asking $150!
245am
Just to clarify, I said $99 based on this
Collectors Club Punch Counterpunch, Cyclonus, Dion Preorders Available Now - Transformers News
A TFCC member can correct me if I'm wrong, but it's $40 for the membership which lets you buy the figure at the "club discount" price. The discount is, ahem, $40. So for PCP, the non-member price is $99, member price is $59, which, with the membership fee, is basically the same. Membership does have other bonuses like botcon prereg discount and a free figure (Side Burn in 2011).

Interesting. I thought the first run was 89 for non members.

That is correct. A bogus, trumped up, inflated, crazy price for that figure.

I like that toy, but I don't think it's $150+ like it.
E-Z-B
$60 is pretty steep for this deluxe when compared to the price for MP Grimlock.

hmm. I thought I read somewhere that to order one of this run you had to be a member and in good standing. That would mean there is no non-member price. Can anyone confrm?
mikeyfuzz
I will own this
Maverick Hunter Christian
Hopefully before Friday. Wouldn't want to miss this on account of work.
CZ Hazard
Nearly spent $150 on this at Botcon, glad I waited.

I would bet you're right. Can't confirm it but I would imagine the whole reason for this new run is because so many actual members didn't get one.

Powersa
Or can you just pay $99 for it and become a member? $59 + $40.

Of course that's an option, but depending on how fast this run goes, you'd probably want to become a member right now then to wait and try and do both in one shot.
Gammatron 64
Hope I can pick him up before he sells out this time.
guard convoy
i get payed thrusday or friday, SCORE!
Bovril
Shame it was painted by a 5-year-old.

edit: Haha, someone managed to flog the box on eBay for about 1/3 the value of the whole thing. Way to recoup some cash!
G1Jetfire
Signed up for the membership price and missed out on this and Shattered Glass Cyclonus. Now that I am a member, I hope that they re-release not only this but also SG Cyclonus. The comics are cool...
madeguy20
Thank god! I really didn't want to pay too much for it!
jerryitus
I don't love the fact that they are making my p/cp less rare (who would), but I do think its fair to all the fans who subscribed for this figure and didn't get him.
DevilGalvatron
Another small run of figures? I guess I don't understand the logistics. I got my P/CP but I think that this particular character deserves a BIG production run. I really don't think they have to worry about leftover figures with a character this awesome.
Liokaiser
I'm going to order one this round.
03Mach1
This run of 300 will not have a long term effect on the ebay market value. So all of you guys/gals who purchased multiple P/CP with the hopes of trading it for a MISB Fort Max can still breathe easy. For me, I'm just happy I get the chance to buy one at cost. I'll be watching their site like a hawk.

Wyvern
I got the same email. I can't wait. I better not miss out. Lol.
mac&cheese
wheres the link to the site to order? also if im not a memeber i would have to call them to order? theres no online order for non members?
EmGo316
Pretty much all the extra money you're going to spend on this $12 repainted figure is for the pretty box and foam and a new head. Does that make it worth it? It's up to you.
