    really? we're still going with "The Runs" for them? why not just call them the Skidmark Duo, you know, since they're both cars?

    i doubt that'll happen. I can't think of a year that ever happened, though I think there was one year (between Airazor and Astrotrain and the Seacons and Nightbeat) where the club didn't release any extra exclusives... i think these two will be out on time...

    i can understand that... i can see why people want the different molds, but understand this choice... and the Tracks mold would've been better for Runamuck than Runabout... but i still dig these two with the same look.

    hahah, yeah, they'll use a 3rd party item... that's funny... but seriously, there's probably gotta be another jeep/truck mold that'd work... and now i want Energon Demolisher as Wideload even more...

    i love all the reactions to MMM joining... that's made this thread even more fun.

    Yeah, seriously. Off the top of my head it was the first thing that came to mind, as far as alt mode goes. And I figured, since this was a wish-list anyways... ;) 
    I guess if we exclude Hound's classics mold, and we can't use FP Munitioner, then how about..................... gosh, are we really that low on jeep molds?

    Okay then, we use Alternator Hounds mold, and explain away the gross scale difference by saying Ol' Rollbar absorbed some of the power of the Underbase or something, I dunno :confused2

    yeah... i can't think of many other jeep molds that'd work... but there's gotta be something... and if not, there's plenty of other figures that could use updating.

    Well... I've joined! If they show up this time next year I'll be happy.

    Long live- wait- hurrah for the Battlechargers!
    Scourge, not Nemesis Prime!
    Let Generations/United Trailbreaker be a tall deluxe! haha

    :eek: 

    Reading the whole thread just now, seeing your exchange with Pete, and then that post ... wow. Welcome to the club. :D 

    Exactly. I think you don't even need to live in the US for that. You do need Internet access, money, and to follow BotCon/The_TCC twitter accounts, or check the frontpages/news sections of sites like TFW2005/Seibertron/Allspark/etc (which I guess you're doing, since I consider you a TFW2005 regular), so you'll know in advance the expected date for the exclusives to go live in the TCC store; that way, you should be able to get the exclusives without much problem.

    I've had trouble ordering exclusives from Mattycollector due to traffic, and one time I even got ordered figures cancelled without a valid reason. OTOH, I've never had such problems with the TCC exclusives. Even Ramjet.

    One other thing: make up your mind whether you want an exclusive before they go on sale. I procastinated (sp?) with SG Cyclonus, and missed my chance.

    Well after seeing that video for the Battle Charger mod on the Wheeljack mold I guess I'm sold. Looks like I'll be rejoining the club sometime after Christmas, these guys are just too good to pass up. Hopefully the fact that I've moved since I was last in the club doesn't cause any issues though, I've seen other posts regarding that topic from folks and that has me kinda nervous.

    I'll be rejoining in October or November. Not many things could have enticed me to rejoin, but the Battlechargers did it. Now, if you could just find a way to get us some Dinobots as club exclusives...
    Eh, scratch that. I want them as a regular retail release, so everyone can get them. Still, great job on the Battlechargers!
