    Just gotta keep telling myself it's a freebie.

    I don't even like stickers on my toys let alone a series based on retro future.

    Goodness sakes. LOL

    I'm fine with it. I don't have the Glacialords or care much for the stickers, but not every free item has to cater to my needs and wants.

    Seems like a weird choice for the last exclusive item, though; they'll presumably start the 2016 subscription thing soon and "sticker book" doesn't seem like the best option for the last thing in everyone's mind before deciding if they want to sign up again. The new Brainstorm head would have made more sense there (or even Ruthen if we're to presume one of Dai Atlas or Dia Battles will be the 2016 FPCore exclusive).

    I kinda like it. I would have preferred a comic seeing as Fansproject has pretty much abandoned them, but this is neat.

    I also kinda want the Glacial bots upgraded with articulation now. Year 2020 FP exclusive!

    What is to justify? it is free. That is about it. You don't like it? Awesome for you......

    I think your attitude speaks for itself really.

    I'm personally not too crazy about it as I didn't get the glacial bots. That being said, I've liked everything else. Now if they went back and revisited the glacial bots and remade them in a CHUG styling, I would consider them. =)

    ...

    Well, at least I got a faceplate-clad Smartrobin head out of the deal. This has been a very underwhelming experience... I'm not sure what I was expecting from the "premium member exclusives", but I definitely wasn't expecting a sticker book with a description that makes it sounds like a freemium cellphone game.

    We'll get you started for free, but if you want to collect them all, you'll have to get them from other people, OR get sets of the stickers from us!

    ...or, I'll probably just let it collect dust on a shelf.

    I'm happy for those that are excited by this, though.

    I would have preferred a colouring book :( 

    But eh, let's see how retro they go with this. I'm hoping 'very retro'

    Sounds fun, but once the stickers go out, I'm sure we will have scans of them, and I'll put them on wikialpha, for anyone who wants to read the story.

    Nah... This is a joke right?

    How "premium" can a sticker book with no stickers be?

    It's the inconsistent use of English that confuses me.
    Is Ceno Kibble really writing this?

    The press release uses "Glaciallord," but the actual book uses "GLACIALORD." Which is correct?
    And is "most wildest" deliberately wrong? Does it make it more retro?

    Or are these just ignorant mistakes?

    If Sid did the writing then it's as intended. Probably the faux-KO effect these things were originally supposed to trade on.

    Jesus, this is terrible.

    Was hoping that the last freebie would be something to tie the membership set together, but this smacks of simply running out of ideas.

    My guess is the freebie that ended up being Brainstorms head was to be something Steel Core related, this got screwed up at the factory, and the Headmaster was swapped into that slot - now we get "will this do?".

    Ignoble end for a vastly underrated figure, unless a miracle happens we won't see another non-G1 non-copy character.....

    I like Glacialord and the whole 'retro' nostalgia kick, and I get that they haven't had an easy year with the membership program and so they're doing something light for the last bonus. That's all understandable. What isn't cool--as others have mentioned--is that we're getting the empty sticker book and being told to go out and buy stickers. Why not give a completed set to the members as a way to say 'sorry for the shitty year', and make everyone else buy it? That way, I'd at least feel like I'm getting a full something instead of homework.
    It's like if they had given us another core figure without limbs and then told us to buy the rest of the parts online or at their shows. Weak.

    This is pretty cool. I have Glaciallord, so I'm definitely interested in the story.
