    Signed up for the membership price and missed out on this and Shattered Glass Cyclonus. Now that I am a member, I hope that they re-release not only this but also SG Cyclonus. The comics are cool...

    I don't love the fact that they are making my p/cp less rare (who would), but I do think its fair to all the fans who subscribed for this figure and didn't get him.

    Another small run of figures? I guess I don't understand the logistics. I got my P/CP but I think that this particular character deserves a BIG production run. I really don't think they have to worry about leftover figures with a character this awesome.

    This run of 300 will not have a long term effect on the ebay market value. So all of you guys/gals who purchased multiple P/CP with the hopes of trading it for a MISB Fort Max can still breathe easy. For me, I'm just happy I get the chance to buy one at cost. I'll be watching their site like a hawk.

    Pretty much all the extra money you're going to spend on this $12 repainted figure is for the pretty box and foam and a new head. Does that make it worth it? It's up to you.

    He means P/CP is a repaint of a previously used mold with a new head.

    I'm pretty sure you can only order this guy online. He'll appear in the store once the ability to order him goes live.

    I'd like to have one of those for sure, but definitly won't pay $100+ for it. If we need to subscribe to get it it'll be incredibly expensive. It's 70$ to subsribe (for Canadian), the toys is what, ~$50 for member then, and there's probably some shipping on top? So I would be looking at $120+ to get it :redface2: 

    I understand the limited run and all, but it's still a deluxe, if I end up paying $130-140 for it, it's the same price I paid for the 2010 Primus or Unicron... Not appealing.

    Also I don't really know what stuff you get from subsribing, a few magasines (are those really worth the entry fee? I doubt it), Botcon related stuff (I never bought Botcon stuff yet), a free figure (never saw one that interested me either, do they show in advance what it is?). It look quite lackluster for $70 so far.

    If we can buy it as non-member for ~$90, maybe I could get it then, but I'll have to think about it.

    man I just keep rolling this question through in my head: Is "Universe" Punch/Counterpunch worth $99? Seems, so incredibly expensive for what you're getting when compared to Henkei, Masterpiece and other figures around that $100 mark. But then again, it'll likely hold it's value and not likely to be that cheap again. Also, it's sweet.

    Anybody else sitting on the same fence? Is this figure worth $99 to you?
