    We need Venksta or a 3P to make heads for them.

    Agreed! Also does anyone else’s waruders have loose heel spurs or is that just usual for the mold?

    My Waspinator is just fine and one of my Waruders is too, can't remember which. The other three are super floppy though.

    FunPub promised a fix for it, but it never was published. I've heard others say that squeezing the rivet is enough. Personally I use the insect legs to support the bot. If you check out TFWiki it looks like they did the same thing.

    Good to know, just wanted to make sure. Also repurposed one of the mini waspinators a cyberbee for my rod paralon that I need to give better claws to once thermidor comes out

    Red, teal, and black could be BW Inferno if you take the wings off.

    So the cmw unboxed is now down to 38 units. I'm starting to agree with those who say that they are going to halt all further discounts until they get rid of the box sets at 80%

    I can't really blame them either, I'm sure they'd be losing so much money on the box sets at 90% off that they won't do it unless there are only, like, 10 sets left.

    Yeah, looking at the steady progress of inventory that seems to be their plan. Shame. I was a little interested but mostly at the Bargain Basement prices I was anticipating.

    Yeah, I'm sure there was some bitterness starting to set in there when 90% off started to look realistic for a lot of things.

    There is no need for them to be bitter. Many of us have been sharing ideas about things that would be popular for years, and we were routinely ignored. It is no surprise a lot of this stuff is unpopular. No one ever asked for or wanted a lot of it. As a club operated for the fans, ideas should have been presented for a vote. Instead, stuff was just offered as if we were supposed to climb all over each other to get it.

    I dunno, I'm pretty damn happy to get some Beast Wars updates alongside some obscure G1 updates with a few curveballs like a big ol' Pretender shell thrown in. The last couple years of the club were no more niche than the SG or Animated years.

    Not all of their stuff was bad, but a lot of it was. The market is clearly speaking in regards to the items that most fans found undesirable. The club peaked with the 06/07/08 convention offerings. TM3 Megatron was a more recent flash of brilliance.

    Considering most of their figures have sold out I think your logic is flawed

    They had to drop a ton of them down to less than 50% of the original prices in order to move them. My logic is sound.

    I was pretty certain I'd be able to snag a $40 CMW. Now I'm not so sure. I do think that, if that one sells out, I'm probably done. I was thinking of getting some Waruders, Ramjets, and Depth Charges just for the heck of it, but without that centerpiece to justify the shipping I'll probably just peace out.

    CMW is honestly worth the price it's at now

    I believe it... but not to me. The only figure I'm really at all interested in is Oilmaster, and even then I've got my Optimus. I was just looking forward to having some toys to fiddle super cheap.
