    @The_TF_Club posted on Twitter an archive sale containing many of their Club, TFSS, and Botcon exclusives over the years. Of interest is Dawn of Future's Past Optimus Primal from way back in 2006! It doesn't state how long the sale will last, but many of the toys are of very limited quantities.

    EDIT: Forgot to add the word SALE!! to the title. My bad

    So strange. This place is shutting down and yet... prices are still fairly high, no? Where is all this product going to go?

    I was hoping General Optimus Prime would get marked down.

    Those are not prices I would be willing to pay. Some kind of sale.

    I find it particularly interesting that 2006 Optimus Primal is listed for $250, certainly not its original price.

    I thought FunPub was not allowed to charge aftermarket prices for figures they produced.

    These prices are ridiculous for a closeout sale. I mean, I'm sure plenty of collectors will still pay them, but it's still ridiculous

    FunPub doesn't exist anymore in the trademark sense, so I suppose they could charge whatever they want now. No one can tell them otherwise.

    These look like eBay prices for some figures, others seem really cheap. Picked up Bug Bite.
    Would have taken the Rainmakers but looks like that went fast. Never even saw Double Punch online.

    Pretty much what I was thinking. The rarer items they're probably pricing at what they perceived to be market value.

    Yep. For example the G2 Starscream is being sold at over $100 while the other members of the subscription wave are about $75 or less. That is pretty telling.

    I am surprised the Optimus Primal sold for $250. I know it's rare and highly sought after, but geez, $250...

    I wanted the Rainmakers, didn't have that trio. Sadly by the time I hit checkout, someone had beaten me to them. I thought $150 was fair for the set. Got Bug Bite and a Sweeps set instead.

    Shame you can't buy anything unless your a member. I'd love to give Funpub some money, but no.


    Bye Funpub. The only company I know who charges you to give them money.

    Really annoying when it says "Status: Available" but when you put it in your cart, it says there is none.

    Never even saw the Doublepunch set.

    It's especially a shame because now, there's very few perks to still being a member. No newsletter, no free figure. Just Brian and his shenanigans.

    Ditto. Had my hopes up for SG Ricochet.

    Me neither, I jumped on as soon as I got the email. Which is odd, because other items seemed to have sold out, but their listings are still active. The only other item which seemed to be taken down were the Botcon Rainmaker trio. Weird.

    I would have gone for the Bluestreak bonus and G2 Starscream, but over $100 for each? Nope. Carzap and others from that same series are $75...
