A yellow, blue and silver repaint of Blowtorch sold in Argentina.

Hopefully the Club's TNT will focus more on the bomb disposal angle and not include the damn flamethrower the TBT variant had. I want to see the character distinguished from Blowtorch with a different name.

I'm also hoping they won't just phone in the figure with a basic Blowtorch repaint. TNT had a different waist and helmet and I hope the Club figure will reflect that, at least.

Part of me hopes that Sure Fire not being shown yet, is a sign that his inclusion on the "list" is one of the Clubs little "jokes"

But I think that's just me trying to delude myself into believing that the club would put any interest of the fans over their own.

I recall someone saying they overheard Dave Lane at the 2006 Con saying he basically did that chrome more-or-less "straight" remake of Cobra Mortal so he could have one in his collection. So in his case, it wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Well the list was never official that I know of. It was fans that gathered information from around and speculated. It's been 100% though so far. I see no reason the rest won't be accurate. So Sure Fire will probably be the most elaborate figure of the bunch, haha.

I see no reason to doubt it now, there are only 4 left on the list that's the only reason I even give it any credence.

The list has proven completely accurate so far... Is there seriously any doubt that the rest of the list is set in stone as well?

well, i have a hunch that i'll dig Big Boa, and the cover girl is probably a remake of the CP CG, right? plus two more i personally don't care about, brings the ones i'm interested in up to three.

even at $10/fig for the subscription (by some miracle, right?) i will have trouble convincing myself it's worth it.

i would guess, in the end, it will be more financially viable for me to just hunt the 'bay for the few i'm interested in, or can pick up out of the club coffers later ...

TNT, Sure Fire and Big Boa I'm anxious to see, but I actually have fear for Cover Girl. The RoC figure was't a good fill in for the 25th figure we haven't gotten yet. The Sparta figure from the Mission: Brazil set would be a good base to start with, as the head is just fine (if not just a little too wind blown), but essentially the figure was kind of boring. I hope they give her a jacket at least.

TNT I could see using mostly Blowtorch parts with new paint, but give him some new colour that is at least an homage to the original.

Big Boa would be great if they use the Roadblock/Night Adder body

Sure Fire I could go either way on. No love or hate for the character.

As far as speculating on the thirteenth figure... Keel Haul, Toll Booth, Cross Country and Iceberg have yet to be 25th-an-ised. If the club goes that route, I'm assuming they'd go Iceberg as the other three are kind of boring with out their respective vehicles. A decent Frostbite would be nice

I would be very happy with any of those. Especially Toll Booth, I'm not sure why. never had him as a kid, but I dig the construction look (and I've been meaning to pick up a Bridge Layer for a while now)

I'd enjoy any of those as well. And if we were speculating on who Hasbro might make next in a multi-pack or if the 30th line were continuing, I'd call those good bets (mostly because they're characters I've customized recently and Hasbro likes to do me that way).

Since this is the Club, though, I'll go ahead and bet any one of the following is more likely:

    Clutch (tan with fully rolled up sleeves)
    Kamakura (using recent ninja parts and no new tooling)
    Black Out (to go with his brother, using a mix of 25th, RoC and PoC parts with a retooled SpyTroops head)
    Rock n' Roll v2 (with rolled up sleeves and a new hat)
    Munitia (essentially a Baroness repaint with retooled DtC head and duplicate gear)

Just my guesses based on the picks so far and what I suspect of the Club's thought/character-selection process.

I was actually expecting the blue application better, but ...eh.

not a fan of the use of the Duke chest. there are other chests that are a closer resemblance of the DTC chest.

If they pulled off a halfway decent RnR v2 figure... I'd be pretty excited.
