The Unofficial Transformers Club and Convention Exclusive Data Pages

Transformers Collectors' Club Exclusives

This page covers Fun Publications exclusives connected to the Transformers Collectors' Club. 
If you're looking for convention exclusives from BotCon 1994 to OTFCC 2004, click this link
If you're looking for BotCon exclusives from the Fun Publications era of the convention (2005-2016), click this link.
If you're looking for exclusives tied to a convention unrelated to BotCon, click this link.

Although I have made an effort to be thorough, there are still a few places on each of the pages where information is less than solid, and I would greatly appreciate any information anyone is able to provide. Please send me an e-mail through my blog, Blackrock's Toybox.


Hyperlinks to sources are provided where possible, but many of my sources are simply not accessible online, and are thus referenced in notes. In many cases, there are various factors that should be taken into account with regard to how an exclusive should be assessed, and these are noted, as well. In an effort to keep this page comparatively simple and easy to navigate, I have placed notes within mouseover text that only becomes visible if you hover your cursor over the appropriate text. Places where such notes are available are marked with an asterisk (*).

Seacons set (6 figures)

October 2008

1500*Source: Post by Pete Sinclair at the TFW2005 boards on May 23, 2008. The club store listed these as "sold out" on October 17, 2008, but a few more units were made available on the 20th, which quickly sold out as well. An e-mail dated October 23, 2008, made the "SOLD OUT" status official. A warehouse find made a few more available on the evening of November 23, 2010, but this is an aberration.

$119 Approximately 2.4 times (using MSRP of 2010 reissue).

Punch/Counterpunch

June 2010

2100?* The exact number has never been verified, but various percentage updates throughout the order process gave reason to believe that the initial run was about 1800. Pre-orders for those opened on March 26, 2010. Rumors suggested that Punch/Counterpunch was sold out by early morning March 29th. The first time that a club exclusive Transformer sold out during the pre-order process. An e-mail from Brian Savage to club member dated the same day suggested that the club was seeking to increase the original order of toys to be produced. An announcement at BotCon on June 26, 2010 was made that 300 additional figures would be made available, limited only to those members who did not order Punch/Counterpunch during the initial order process. These were made available on August 11, 2010, and sold out within a couple of hours.

Shattered Glass Cyclonus with Krunix

June 2010

1200* Post by Pete Sinclair at the TFW2005 boards on March 8, 2011. Pre-orders for these figures opened on March 26, 2010, and they seemed to be sold out as of June 20, 2010, but a small number (about 40) were discovered after the human processing of the computerized orders revealed a few remaining. These went on sale on August 11, 2010, and quickly sold out.

$44 4.0 times  

G2 Ramjet

June 2011

2200 (maybe 2400)*Source: Direct Twitter message from The_TF_Club on February 1, 2012 said 2000, while also giving first explicit confirmation that the official number wouldn't include units that were "held out" and suggests that the "total FOR SALE amount" might have even been somewhat higher. I expect that this is true for most official numbers, at least from FP, but that number is what I will continue to feature here. E-mail from Pete Sinclair on 2/2 gave a correction, indicating that they increased the run at the last minute, either to 2200 or 2400. He wasn't sure, but he thought it was 2200--Note that pre-orders went live on April 27, 2011, and Ramjet was announced SOLD OUT by the morning of April 28th. Less than 24 hours later.

$58 5.3 times New rubber-tipped nosecone

Animated Transtech Cheetor

June 2011*Some figures were available for purchase at BotCon 2011 before pre-orders had been shipped out.

Not yet known*Pre-orders went up on April 27, 2011.

$52 4.7 times New head

Side Burn

Late July 2011

4500*Source: E-mail from Pete Sinclair dated May 23, 2014.

N/A (or $32)*Membership incentive figure, sent to all members whose dues were paid as of March 16, 2011. Members had the option of buying it through the club store for $32 for a few hours on August 17, 2011, after which the toy SOLD OUT. N/A if included with club membership. 3.2 times if bought from club store.*Although Deluxes have been steadily increasing in retail price over the years, the original version of Side Burn's mold was from a time I still considered Deluxes to retail at $10. This isn't an exact science.

Over-Run (aka Runabout)

February 2012

3200*Source: E-mail from Pete Sinclair dated May 23, 2014.

$54 4.2 times New head

Shattered Glass Drift

February 2012

>2200*Pre-orders went up on 1/30/12, but problems with the credit card processing server meant that only a few fans could get through that day before pre-orders were closed to fix the problem. Pre-orders went up again on 2/1/12. Twitter message from The_TF_Club early on 2/2 said that Drift had already outsold G2 Ramjet and Punch/Counterpunch, and by the close of the business day, another Twitter message said there were only 17 left. These were apparently sold out that evening, but there has been no official statement. A few extras were found and put up on the site months later, on 10/17/12.

$49 3.8 times

None, although no previous use of this mold has used this combination of features.

Runamuck

April 2012

5500*Source: E-mail from Pete Sinclair dated May 23, 2014.

N/A (or $32)*Membership incentive figure, sent to all members whose dues were paid as of March 21, 2012. Members have the option of buying it through the club store for $32. (A small number of Runamucks were sold at BotCon and via an early test at $25, but this seems to have been a special promotion, and not the intended price, as $32 is the same as Side Burn, the previous year's incentive. (Source for date in note) N/A if included with club membership. 2.5 times if bought from club store.*Deluxes have been steadily increasing in retail price over the years. This year, I've been considering the retail price of Deluxes to be $13. New head (same as Over-Run)

Depth Charge

June 2013*Toy was available at BotCon 2013 the week before it began to arrive at members' homes. This was in part so that a packaged variation could be available for BotCon 2013 guest David Sobolov to sign. Both packaged and unpackaged versions were at BotCon. Members received the unpackaged version with their membership, with the option to buy either the package or unpackaged version at the club store.

7000*Source: E-mail from Pete Sinclair dated May 23, 2014. Pete wasn't sure how this broke down between carded and uncarded figures.

N/A (or $29)*Membership incentive figure, sent to all members whose dues were paid as of March 16, 2013. Members have the option of buying it through the club store for $29. In addition, a carded version may be purchased for $39. N/A if included with club membership. 1.9 times if bought from club store.*Deluxes have been steadily increasing in retail price over the years. This year, I've been considering the retail price of Deluxes to be $15. Note that this multiplier is for the regular, non-carded version. The muliplier for the carded version would be 2.6 times retail.

 

RiD Scourge

June 2013

3000 each*Source: E-mail from Pete Sinclair dated 8/17/15. All 6 items from this subscription series were produced in the same numbers.

$282 for set of 6*Figures were also made available separately at the club store. Ultra Mammoth was sold for $79. Scourge and Slipstream were sold for $69 each. Breakdown, Circuit, and Jackpot were sold for $59 each. Roughly 3.0 times on average*The price of deluxes has been in flux for several years, but is settling toward $15. I'm counting Ultra Mammoth at $20, recognizing that this would be a lowball estimate in today's retail market, but hoping that balances out the high-end estimate for the deluxes.

Slipstream

Maximal Rampage

3600*Source: e-mail from Pete Sinclair dated 7/21/16.

N/A (or $34)*Membership incentive figure, sent to all members whose dues were paid as of March 16, 2014. Members also had the option of buying it through the club store at BotCon 2014, and later via the online store. N/A if included with club membership. 2.6 times if bought from club store.*The price of deluxes has been in flux for several years. I'm counting it as roughly $13 this year. New head

Barricade w/Frenzy

Late May 2014

1500 each*Source: e-mail from Pete Sinclair dated 7/21/16.

$279 for set of 6 (but see below)*Figures were also made available separately at the club store. Barricade was sold for $79. Thrustinator was sold for $75. Chromedome was sold for $69. Fisitron and Treadshot were sold for $59 each. Rewind was sold for $49. Roughly 3.5 times on average*The price of deluxes has been in flux for several years, and after seeming to settle toward $15 a year ago, looks to be down to about $13 now. I'm counting the scout at roughly $7.50, and the three Microns (as a set) at roughly $7.50 as well, which is admittedly a guess, but I think a reasonably good one based on the old retail prices for Scouts, and the old trend of selling three Mini-Cons at Scout prices.

CarZap w/ G.B. Blackrock Kreon and Kre-O blocks

May 2015

Not yet known

$297 for set of 6 (but see below) Roughly 3.3 times on average.*Using $15 for a Deluxe as the basis. Although some figures come with various "extras," I figure that at worst, they would simply pull the average retail price closer to $15 at those comparatively few chains that might sell a deluxe at just less than $15.

"Old Snake" with 2 Stealth BATs

$79 2.1 times*None of these items has a proper current retail equivalent. I went with $7.50 for the action figure, and $15 each for the Deluxe-sized Transformers. Uses hat created by FunPub for 2013 GI Joe Convention Muskrat figure.

Late April 2016

$297 for set of 6 (but see below)*The five "Thunder Mayhem" Figures were also made available separately at the club store starting on August 19, 2016. Bludgeon was sold for $79. The limb figures were sold for $69 each. Roughly 2.7 times on average.*Using $17 for a Deluxe as the basis, and $25 for Voyager. I do not consider this year's "extras" to have a meaningful impact on would-be retail value.

"Only Human" Arcee

January 2017

Not yet known

$29 3.9 times*The most recent Joe figures I can find at retail were released in 2015, and the fewest I found packed together were 3-packs at $20. Multiplier would have used this as the basis for an estimate, but I feel that single-packed figures would inevitably be sold at more than $6.67 at retail, so I took my best guess instead. Using $7.50 as the retail cost for a single figure. New head

"Only Human" Rodimus

January 2017 

Not yet known

$129 3.2 times*Using basis of $7.50 per Joe figure. For TFs, went with $10 for Megatron, given current Legends price-point, and $7.50 for MP Ratbat, a figure which has never been available separately. Hopefully, the estimates all balance out.

Fractyl w/ Scorponok

March 2017

Not yet known

$330 for set of 6 (but see below) Roughly 2.6 times on average.*Using $10 for a Legends as a basis, $17 for a Deluxe, and $25 for Voyager. There's really no retail basis for Pretender shells, so I count them at $10 each. For the "extra" companions included, which again have no current retail basis, I'm just doing a catch-all $10 on top. Uses head created by FunPub for BotCon 2016 Terrorsaur figure.
