    I for one love how SG Cyclonus looks. :D  Can't wait to get him...as soon as I join, of course.

    Punch/Counterpunch is the best use of that mold to date IMO. I'm not a member, but I hope BBTS will have some available for preorder.

    I'll be pissed if I don't get one. P/CP is the only reason why I just recently became a member.

    Amazing. Can't wait for these two. P/CP is perfect.

    I'm getting SG Cyclonus. I don't care for the SG universe. But the Cyclonus mold is too good NOT to get every version of it :D

    oooh - shiny :D  - Say Pete? Any reason why you couldn't use 'Nightstick' or just wanted to go with something different?

    Both are insta-buys.

    But yes, P/CP bot pics, please!

    I'm going with Photoshoppery.

    I'm going to have to look into having a current member pick up a P/CP for me.

    I believe Nightstick is already with the Autobot Ricochet IIRC.

    Besides its good to get new names especially when they're this obscure. Marvel U.S. got Cyclonus' character model completely wrong so Marvel U.K. gave Cyclonus a brand new name, Krunix, when they reprinted the U.S. comic since Cyclonus was a prominent character in the U.K. comics.

    I'm with the other million and a half fans itching to pick up Punch/Counterpunch.

    Still on the fence with Cyclonus, though. To be honest, I would be a lot more excited if his SG color scheme was really gaudy. Like hot pinks and greens. That's the ticket! XD

    Very much liking both of them. I would be really happy if Cyclonus cost nearer $30 than $40, based on the fact we're getting a Hotshot repaint as part of a $40 membership its possible, but the box and possibly metallic paint might push it to $40+. I'm getting it and Strafe. One mostly white and one mostly red, more than different enough for me.

    At least the club store has been updated since I emailed Brian ( I didn't get a response so don't know if thats just coincidence or not) now there is one of the post office shipping option back and the cost of shipping just halved (although oddly the chepest Fed Ex Option went up).

    My question is: How much will it cost to join the club AND get these things? I don't attend Botcon unless it's close, so I'm not sure there's enough benefit to warrant such an expenditure. If they're going to be in the $40 range, then I may well wait for the secondary market.

    $40ish for club, $40ish per toy.

    $80+ each for the toys on the AM

    I just joined the club for the first time tonight as well. All for P/CP... and.... Dion. I guess. :D  After all these years, you finally got me, TFCC. Now please make this membership worth my while.

    Why the hell are people acting like they HAVE to sign up to get this figure? The only benifit is you get it CHEAPER! I didn't have to join the club to get my Seacons, I just payed a fraction more, and that fraction is not even close to the price of joining!

    Anyway... I will be buying Punch/Counterpunch. I can't wait for it!

    Well yeah, but if you're gonna pay the same price at the end of the day, wouldn't you rather get magazines, and free toys too?
