    From the "how the HELL did this slip under everyone's radar?" files.

    Apparently the Collectors' Club put this up on their website when no-one was looking, and even Autobase Aichi didn't discover it until two days ago. Odd.

    As an unfinished sample, I like it. Nothing surprising.

    Ooh, neat. Lookin' good. I love the first three figures in this set, so I was already pre-confitioned to like this one. And it's nice to see confirmation, in print, that next year's figure will have a new gestalt head.

    With that color distribution, this figure looks oddly Optimus-y. :)

    Well, according to the club comic, the combined figure has been designated a "Prime," so it's not entirely surprising.

    Dig the colors. Nothing too special about it to me though, I guess. Filed under "maybe".

    Thanks yet again Nevermore.

    Its really not all that surprising or flashy but still good on its own.

    I missed out on the last 2 but really want the whole set.

    The last one in the series will be the best. Botcon maybe?

    What I find odd about Topspin is that, in the club forums, [email protected] said that red is NOT the transparent color on this guy. Which leaves me confused as to how well he'll fit in with the others..

    It looks okay. Nothing special. This'll be my first Collector's Club exclusive toy. I'm looking forward to getting it.
