It's ok for what it is.   


Can't beleive I'm saying this but after seeing the TFCC 2010 figure, Joe fans get the better deal. Big Lob at least had fans, Dion is utter fail.

Unless Hot Shot is the retooled Japanese version with less back kibble and missile launchers, I whole-heartedly agree.

Although Blackface Mercer With Lipstick is still a horrible head.

Nope it sounds like it's a straight run thru of the Classics mold. So no rockets, the poorer full bumper molding and it sounds like he will have a 'Jolt' mini-con but no name for him yet.

I disagree. To me, the repainted head works very well. I think this Big Lob looks already awesome and even though I am pretty happy with my own custom Big Lob, I'm looking forward to getting this one, finally!

Well that's not what I was expecting. I think it might be OK. I guess I need one in hand to make up my mind.

The 12 inch guy on the other hand, now that is cool. That I can see in my collection. Maybe in the the new year I'll renew my membership. Maybe.

Anyone have a link to this "Hot Shot" Transformer you guys are talking about? I'm not really into Transformers anymore but still like to look at the pics.

Dion's image is for Club members only. He's an orange and blue redeco of Universe Hot Shot:

His back kibble is really cumbersome because Hasbro ditched the missile launchers/exhaust pipes, so the rear of the car got widened to avoid a gap.
Takara's "Henkei!" version kept the missile launchers and has better articulation thanks to its smaller back kibble:

So do you have to be some sort of member to get a Big Lob? If anyone can help out, LMK.
Anyone on here a member who can recommend or not? I just signed up as a 'Trooper', I think...

If you are a paid member of the Joe club for the following year (Officer level) than you get a choice of a ARAH (Big Lob) or Adventure Team (Urban Adventurer) 'free' exclusive.
If you are a paid member of the TF club for the following year (the only level available) than you get the single 'free' exclusive (Dion)

If you are a Trooper, or without membership, once they have distributed the freebies they need to send they will likely have left-overs. Those will be sold at the respected conventions or in the online stores, you won't need to be a paid member to purchase them, but the cost will be higher and likely will contain a membership (so you'll receive the next years one free when it rolls around.

Or you get someone who's a member to buy an extra once they are put up and pay them back for it.

I am definitely renewing my membership, might be my last chance to get an O-Ring fig, if they go to the 25th styling for 2011's exclusive, I probably won't renew.
