    Would you like the free toy to be a toy that was planned to be sold at retail but was cancelled without it seeing a release anywhere?

    Say, perhaps Animated Fugitive Waspinator (Deluxe Bumblebee repaint).

    It would be too much for the Club to ask people to pay full price Subscription charges for toys that were supposed to be sold at retail. But getting a free retail toy that wasn't sold at retail is good, right?

    I'll bet that specific one makes it out eventually in the subscription service.

    i would like to see this idea implemented, in addition to their existing figures.
    Keep the normal freebie, the subscription service, the joint ehobby products.

    also, i think that tfcc should look into finding a way to add Takara products to their club store, it would be great note having to pay ludicrous shipping prices, and it would give people a reason to want to be club members, other than one free toy and a slightly cheaper botcon ticket

    Yeah, it'd be cool to have them import some stuff en masse, so we don't have to pay tons of shipping above the already high imported price point. A little more incentive to be a club member. As far as the discontinued figures offered as club exclusives: I guess it depends on what toy it is. I never, ever want to see a repainted Bumblebee for any reason. Ever.

    2 things that I don't agree with.

    1. You assume it would be cheaper. We have no reason to believe that this would mean that they lowered the price.

    2. IF they lowered the price then no, I'd rather pay full price for somwthing that appeals to me like the runabout/runamuck rather than half price for something I don't want.

    I'd like to see such offered as a club exclusive, but not for the freebie figure.
