How the heck do I login? I've been signed up as a member for almost a month and they didn't even email us about it opening.

Christ does it look shady.

EDIT

The store is not open yet.

Just talked to their customer service and a polite lady explained that they're still working on the site and someone found the working url and spread word that it is up and running, but it won't be officially open for a few days (which explains why there's a lot of stuff that's not even up yet). I was told that we can create logins and whatnot once it's open and that we'll receive emails about it.

I've read stories that even the Club's staff had problems logging in today, so don't worry (yet).

May want to change the headline based on the info. I got from their customer service...and then delete this post which will then become meaningless...

If you are a member of the Tansformers Collectors' Club click here to login.

Inspires confidence, doesn't it?

This is why you should always do live web development behind appropriate .htaccess protections...

Ford Mustang GT with Grimlock
Member: $19.99
Non-Member: $26.99


Do they plan on charging for postage? Only I got the impression that Alternators were $20 in stores.

Joe Moore explained it at TFW 2005... It's a small store, they can't afford the prices big stores such as Wal*Mart ask for those toys. Mind you, online stores such as BBTS ask MORE for some of these toys, and let's not mention Action-HQ's prices...

Yeah, but we're already paying $40+ for the chance to buy the figures, so I was at least expecting a price lower than retail as an incentive. Otherwise, there's not much reason for anyone with access to a board that allows trading/selling to join up other than the exclusives...and given this company's history, I'm concerned that those will be outrageous.

Yeah, the prices I saw definitely make me glad I didn't join. Members: same price as store. Non-Members: higher price than the store. If that doesn't deserve a "f*ck off," I don't know what does . . .

Looks like it's "live" now.

Well, that was worth waiting for, wasn't it?

Hopefully they'll actually add some worthwhile content in the days to come. I'm surprised it's actually up now since the estimate I was given was several days and I was told that yesterday.

I'm still optimistic anyway.

A test URL being posted all over fan boards probably forced their hand to some extent.

Which, obviously, has NOTHING at all to do with them being unable to test the store in a setting that keeps people who aren't part of the testing team out...

Yeh, naive, just saying.

What the ****'s the point in searching by gender? I mean, Western Transformers have averaged about a female toy character a decade...

That's going to be the selling point for all of their exclusives.

They'll be the regular toys with the addition of a couple of push-pins per TF.
