    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.

    Got it. Thanks.

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

    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.

    $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?

    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.

    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.

    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!
