Default Pics and info on the new Club exlusive: Landquake

http://www.mastercollector.com/artic...lubfigure.html


I am almost sure they said his name will not be Landquake, but whatever.

And for some reason, he is a Decepticon...Why does he combine with an Autobot?

Repaint is another bleh....

The name "Landquake" was revealed by last month's edition of the club magazine, actually.

That's a whole new level of ugly...

And why are they making a combiner that 'we know' that's part Autobot and part Decepticon? Anyone know of a combiner giant, or just any giant at all, that would fit THAT bill?

Alvarez just said that the combiner would be a new character.

Hence killing more interest...

Honestly, with the tranlucency and mold choices, Computron (and his members) would have made SO much more sense... the only one you would have to fudge is afterburner.

But now we have an ugly combiner of 'no-names'of both factions (watch a Predacon be next), that combine into a giant that no one has ever previously heard of.

Over the space of a few YEARS, no less.

Anyone really going to care in 2009, when this 'special team' is done?

E-Bay sellers who can them sell the whole lot as a "Extremely limited exclusive edition"?

As for the story of Landquake remaining a Decepticon? that will have to wait for another day. Just see how the story unfolds. When we first put out the Skyfall figure we had every intention of retooling the remaining limbs. It was a tough call to not retool Landquake, but unfortunately the cost to produce coupled with the limited quantities that are going to be made just couldn’t be justified. The reason why? When the Botcon 2005 figures were being retooled the wrong metal was used to create the new molds making those figures more expensive to produce by a substantial amount. Because of this unexpected cost, the tooling we wanted to do on Landquake was affected.
In short: The factory screwed up, Fun Publications had to cover up for it, and in the end, the Club members who won't attend BotCon are getting screwed. And to make matters worse, the story will apparently be written along just so it covers up for the mis-matching faction symbols.

I don't regret not being a member of this club, honestly.

Well, that's the final nail in the coffin for me, I won't be renewing unless Botcon's at a decent time, close to me, and the cost of rejoining would make a significant difference in my Botcon charges.

Serious question. I haven't seen anyone say "wow, look what I got."

Believe it or not, we were promised within the past 24 hours that the new Botcon set would have no remolds. There might be remolds available in the "at the convention" toys, but not in the box set.
EDIT:

Actualy what was said was that there were no REPAINTS within the boxset. Direct quotes:

That doesn't mean the additional sets won't have a repaint or two. I interpret it as the boxset.

That unfortunately seems to cover things.

Bit of board cross-promotion, I know, but there's a lot of salient points covered in this thread:

Are you renewing your fan club membership this year?
http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=1671

Including responses by the club.

You know what? the more I read about it, and the more i check the comments Alvarez and comapany has made, the more upset i get.

I really can't figure out howcome a fanclub doesn't give a **** about the actual fans.
I remember guys hating 3H after only one of them left, but this is much much worse IMO.

My membership ends in may, I won't be renewing, but I will fight to get Landquake. Not because I like the toy, but because I deserve it according to their announcement.


After that, I really hope this club shuts down quickly ,and Hasbro will give the license to a company that deserves it.
