    Best duo of figures the TFC has ever offered.

    Nice. I'll have to see if I can afford this guy in my budget. Most of the convention exclusives haven't been my cup of tea, but this is a god damn Decepticon with a car alt. mode, the kind I HUNGER for. Seriously, we don't get enough car Decepticons.

    General thank you very much. And we are both Canadian and we both attend TFCon (a most comforting thought)

    I know one of these two is the free figure when you order a membership. Can you buy extras of the free figure?

    Also.... Can Canadians now join the club? I thought it was an American only thing (but I get the feelign I am wrong)

    Awesome. Rather he didn't have the red stripe down the middle of the hood, but that's a minor gripe overall, everything else looks great.

    TBH $58 for membership, a free figure and a couple of magazines (I assume this price includes all shipping) the price is a steal.

    I think it is time to cut out the middleman and join.

    Thanks for the info Pete. I missed out on P/CP (sorespot for me) I will not miss out on these two guys.

    I'll be ok living without these, and I'd be beyond pissed if I missed out on the one I have to buy.

    Demand will be insane, buying the one won't be a picnic. If there was any kind of assurance of a normal time frame that I could buy in I would actually be tempted to join. Sadly, this never happens - you get a tiny window and if you miss it, too bad.

    Pete if I may have a moment of your time.


    The free figure will be easy to obtain. Will there be a benefit to member in regards to getting the second figure to complete the duo?

    I know these figures sell out quick and it will be very upsetting to get one guy and not the other because scalpers jump all over it knowing demad will be insane.

    Thanks for your time and any info.

    Just as an FYI/heads up for you, for the paid exclusives, it'll be about 30 bucks shipping or so minimum.

    It's a better proposition to organize/get in on a groupbuy.

    We CLEARLY understand that there will be some serious demand for Runabout. It is always a tightrope, we want these to sell out in relative quick order, but we also want everyone that really wants him to get him.

    Anyways, we are gonna take a hard look at membership totals when the time comes to call the final order and will do everything we can to ensure that he is available for everyone. We are already projecting numbers far greater than what we called for Ramjet...

    Hey Pete,
    Runamuck (white) looks pretty cool while Runabout (Black) looks pretty cool especially with all the red on the black along with the trans-clear red windows.

    Thanks for 2 Neat Decepticons,
    -TF2 :)
