Here's Ironhide: http://www.e-hobby.co.jp/shopdetail/002023000030/
Looks a lot better here in a larger pic, but I still prefer him as Kup. I would buy this if Hasbro released one. I pretty much only bought Arms Micron Breakdown and Jet Vehicon 'cuz they aren't likely to come out here and are show characters.

You don't have enough for the $96.00 per installment? They space it out into three payments during the year. You don't have to pay the $300 something all at once. It's basically $48 per figure.

Oh, okay. I was hoping you might have had enough left from what you had gotten from that last job. I guess we can just cross our fingers that things work out with the whole thing!

And in a very poorly timed segway:

Dark Energon preorders go up on Friday night!

Megatron, "Skywarp" and "Slicer" are musts, but I like them ALL very much.

And here the collaboration between eHobby and the Collector's Club bears fruit with G1 Shattered Glass toys!
http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.ph ... t&id=29547
Kinda glad I DON'T want those with all the other things coming out!'

Fall of Cybertron Voyager Wave 1 will be Soundwave AND Soundblaster. First time I can think of that they've offered the same toy at the same time in the same case in two different color schemes. Feels more Japanese in its approach.

Actually, it's not evenly over the year. You get docked the $96 one month, than the second installment just one month later, than the third two months after that. Considering they charge a $3 processing fee for each purchase, it just makes more sense for those who aren't EXTREMELY tight on money for just the next few weeks to go with the pay-all-at-once option.

Plus, to be honest I don't trust FunPub enough again to think automatically deducting money from my CC will work flawlessly (without the occasional double-charge or somesuch).

As for the G1 cassette & cassette player toys-- I'll have to see how much. Despite my love of SG, right now I'm leaning towards "no" because they're G1 molds, which just pale in comparison to modern molds in every way. I don't really want to pay premium prices for G1 molds, though I don't have most of the cassettes....

...damn, I forgot about the cassettes! I love those guys and have most of the U.S. G1 tapes and some of the eHobby versions. Interest...rising...
Heck, I still have to fight myself on getting another Twincast for his kitties!
The tape guys were G1's most brilliant gimmick.

The Club will carry these guys.
