You may have not been aware that there is a Collectors club for Transformer fanatics tat collect toys but there is and sadly I have never joined but I may some day, so I thought you might be interested in the club. Americans pay $42 USD for one year. (Rates are higher for international fans or quicker postage.) Current benefits with a 1 year membership include:
Six issues of the Transformers Collectors’ Club Official Magazine, each including an issue of the club comic.
An exclusive Transformers figure, free with each year’s paid membership:
- 2005 – Skyfall: a redeco of Energon Sky Shadow/Terradive, transforming into an A-10 bomber plane
- 2006 – Landquake: A redeco of the Energon Blight/Kickback that transforms into an anti-aircraft tank
- 2007 – Breakaway: a redeco of Energon Treadshot/Windrazor, transforming into a F-22 Raptor fighter jet (sort of)

Access to the Collectors’ Club store to buy Collectors’ Club exclusive toys. these toys are:

- Seacons Redecoes of the original G1 Seacons
- Punch/Counterpunch a retooling of Classics Sunstreaker/Sideswipe , transforming into a heavily modified Lamborghini Gallard. “This mold lends itself nicely to the gimmick of two bots in one, since there is an alternate transformation to make the two originals look different by using either the hood or the top of the car as a chest plus other changes of pieces”
