    Hm, this is just more of a reason for me to join, I guess. I do plan on going to Botcon, and I do like exclusive toys, so it generally makes sense that I pay the $40.

    I just hope it ends up being worth my while. I'm going to be very angry if that Punch/Counterpunch sells out before I can pre-order one.

    Question is...will Punch/Counter Punch be able to transform well and alternate between the spy modes? lol Probably just swap a head or something I'm guessing?

    The head will have a movable visor just like the old toy.

    .....YEAH JUST LOOKED ON EBAY.


    THING IS HE'LL END UP GREEN IF I PAINT SUNSTREAKER
    AND PURPLE IF I PAINT ANOTHER SIDESWIPE....

    THE LACK OF NEW CLASSICS IS THE REASON THEY GET AWAY WITH PRICE GOUGING REPAINTS IN THE FIRST PLACE!

    FOR THAT KIND OF BREAD I'LL JUST PASS ON TRANSFORMERS ALL TOGETHER AND FOCUS MORE ON PS3,360 AND Wii GAMES.

    I'd have to say it's because most of us are in the US so buying an exclusive means you pretty much pay to be in the club. I understand that you are in Canada so it may still cost you $40 more if you're not a member but the cost of membership for you is a lot higher than $40

    For the people who don't care for this year's club exclusive, maybe they can buy P/CP after March 16th, which would make them eliagable for next years exclusive and hopefully that one is better.

    I for one am stoked to be in the club again. $40 for a free figure and the perks of the pretty sweet exclusives is really starting to pick up. I bought 2 of my friends the Seacons, which meant shipping was reduced for me because I bought 3 sets and a Nightbeat at the same time, good deal.

    I'm not sold on SG Cyc but the club free fig is growing on me and P/CP is a must, maybe get 2 actually

    new show

    I hope we get Punch/Counterpunch in the new show. Or some one like him in the show. Like how they did with Shockwave in TFA.:drool:  :thumb

    Place the engine on top of the gun, and fold the intakes down. It's not particulary secure, but Swipe and Streaker's can do the same thing.

    Closer to G1 P/CP, but looks a bit odd on this mold. Not too keen on the black strakes before the windscreen either. Still a definite buy though!

    Cyclonus probably not, I've got Strafe, and am trying to stop buying irrelevant repaints. Not into SG, so where would he go?

    Can any non-US members tell me how the comics/figure are sent, i.e. which postal option? I'm guessing Priority, or First Class Airmail.

    Cyclonus is giving out a Hot Rod/Rodimus vibe. Nice! :D

    You mean they're lifting an idea from EVERYONE. A car that turns into two robots? Who would ever think to repaint it into the car that turned into two robots?

    Besides, we already did the whole "DEY TURK MAH EYEDEER!" bit when P/CP was announced way back when.
