    Actually, i'm confused.
    I konw P/CP is a classic character.
    But i really can't accept his price.
    $99(including shiiping) for a deluxe figure?
    Well, a new head but not a good look:rip 

    Another reason for me is the shipping goes higher and higer every year.
    Don't they ever try to offer USPS priority mail service for foreign member?

    Felt your pain there. I joined up a couple weeks ago after deciding I like what I see in the mag and where they're going with exclusives. One day i'll get to a botcon and next year could be it, and I want P/CP. So for me I finally pulled the trigger. If it's not worth it to you then I wouldn't. No shame in that game. Hell, you could probably get one of the radicons to make one for you with a better head.

    And to those asking about non-member price, I've reread the email a few times and I think you must be an existing member to order. No non-member prices. Makes me wonder if they'll charge members what they did before.

    The figure cost yes. But I don't know about membership fees.

    I thought about it and decided not to join the club. I'm in Texas and it's not like I'm going to BotCon next year so being a member doesn't do much for me.

    Passed it the 1st time, 2nd time is actually easier.

    Well... its worth it if someone can make a cool Custom head for it. Otherwise, P/CP is going on ebay in a few months

    I'm glad there is a second run, as I just recently joined the club again JUST for this figure..and somehow I missed out.

    But, I do not understand how it's more "fair" to NOT tell everyone when the damn thing is going to be on the site. I would think it would be MORE fair to say EXACTLY when it's going to be on the site ON the actual website. How is that not more fair? Now I'm going to have to pull a "when is Sarge going to be on HTS, and destroy the F5 key" again. I think that's ridiculous.

    Yeah....the more I think about it. MP Grimlock and Predaking are definitely the ones to where the money is going. While this was an interesting, and very good idea to do, the P/CP figure is not that fab a figure for all the hassle and expense. More for you guys. :)

    I couldn't agree more Runamuck. I am still wondering how I missed the first run. It was like I blinked and missed it.

    I am sure this going to go on sale when I cannot get to a computer.

    I hope this sale goes smoothly and encourages FunPub to follow the one per member model in the future. Good luck to everyone who wants one.

    Just watched a video review for this guy. I was thinking of trying to get this guy, but after seeing the video, it's a definite pass. The paint apps are cool, I like the homage to the original, and the gimmick is cool, but the head is too small. I understand it had to be done that way so that the figure could work, but it just makes him look goofy. Hasbro should do a completely new mold for this guy. Maybe they can complete the circle and piss off the collectors club and make an awesome new mold making this figure inferior. :D

    No, no it didn't. The factory forced a downsize of the head for some reason, and FP apparently didn't fight too hard to stop them. I'm not understanding that at all - I thought when you hired someone to make something for you, they made it according to YOUR specifications, not theirs.

    Anyway, the head was designed to be a normal size, and worked at a normal size.

    Excuse me.
    Is P/CP arriving in Fun publication's ware house now?
    Or just being shiiping out from china?

    I've made up my mind........
