    I'll spoiler tag these for those wanting to keep the surprise since this does give away the release order:

    July -
    Thrustinator
    August and September -
    Treadshot
    and
    Chromedome
    (my source was not clear on which was which month)
    October -
    Rewind
    and the mystery seventh guy.

    Wow, I wonder if that outline is the figure's shape?

    The releases were spoiled in one of the Botcon threads when someone took pics of the boxes.

    I hope the club decided to truly surprise people and we get Rosanna instead of Eject.

    Seriously, it would give fans a classics version of the character and the unique "pink tank"... AND they don't have to worry about it not being a seller because it's a free bonus figure!

    Wow, is your source Seibertron.com? Because the boxes for the pre-release samples they got to photograph clearly had the release number for Thrustinator and Rewind. Treadshot and Chromedome are the only ones left.

    Yeah; this feels like we got this from the Seibertron info when they put their galleries up.

    Huh, Seibertron has pictures up? I simply heard this discussed with people on the show floor at Botcon, I was unaware they'd got pics. (That's why I say "my source", I chatted with a lot of people over the weekend who have connections to have heard this stuff)

    (Wonders why we did not get an invite...)

    That's cool (figured Rewind would be last as he's the smallest, and the free figure is most likely a repaint (Eject?).

    I just wonder when the next instalment will be taken....

    Probably because I'm such a jerk towards Funpub on this board. :lol 

    I'll have to agree that the bonus figure being Rosanna would be cool - then again, I'm sure many people would prefer Eject so they have the duo complete. :)

    I know. Apparently "Thrust" alone didn't have much of a sexual undertone to it. So they decided on a name with a sexual overtone. And FunPub clearly didn't learn from the whole "Nexus Maximus" debacle.

    Well... the mystery figure is most likely Eject to go with Rewind... no?

    That's the obvious route, but FP isn't always obvious... So many like me hope it's Rosanna.

    That would be the BEST route for them! I absolutely do not care about Eject at all, and don't really want a version from a tank, but a bright pink Rosanna? SOLD!

    Man I friggin' hope Thrustinator is next! I'm waiting on him to pull the trigger on my BBTS pile o'loot.

    Well, assuming Rattrap and Fat Tankor finally come in, too. Probably won't wait around for Arcee.

    Looks like both the figures that I have my eye on will be released toward the end of the release schedule. Good news as this gives me some time to pay off some of my existing purchases before these figures drop.

    Didn't subscribe to the figure service this year and I'm getting them through BBTS. The only thing is that I'm really feeling like they are taking me for a ride with those prices of theirs. I have a current regular club member ship, so I can buy from the club store but they haven't offered a single extra subscription figure there as of yet. Wondering if they will have any extra's to sell off this year?

    And the suggestion for them to release Rossona as the seventh exclusive figure would be pure brilliance. With Hasbro releasing: Windblade, Arcee, Chromia, plus Botcon's: FlameWar, Transmutate, and Flair-Up, it is certainly shaping up to be the year of the Fembot after all.

    I hate to burst ye olde bubble, but I have it on good authority (i.e. a FunPub source) that you're getting exactly what you'd expect to go with Rewind...

    Ze Bingo! ;) 

    I'd love to see a poll about this, though. I wonder how many of us would prefer a different character? Personally, I think FunPub should have thrown Eject in the NEXT sub service, forcing completionists to pay for the next round! :D  That would have been more devious... but then again, you guys like to complain hardcore, so maybe they didn't want to deal with that! :lol  The FunPub guys seemed very sincere, straight-forward, and generally nice people. They really are trying their best to please the fans, despite whatever mis-steps they take here and there.

    LAME. LAME. LAME.

    I know that the Rosanna group is probably the minority, and if they did do her, people would be like "Why not Eject?" and it'd all lead to more nonsensical bitching either way, but damn, I was really hoping for something different.

    So...pardon my ignorance, but is there any way to get these individually? I NEED that Chromedome but could probably pass on the rest.
