The Hasbro Transformers Collectors' Club is run by Fun Publications. With the purchase of a year's membership, each member receives:
- 12 issues of Fun Publications' Master Collector newsprint classifieds
- Six issues of the Transformers Collectors' Club Official Magazine, each including an issue of the club comic.
- A free exclusive Transformers figure
- Access to the Collectors' Club store, forums, and member-exclusive content on the Collectors' Club website
- Ability to buy Collectors' Club exclusive toys
- Discounts on BotCon preregistration
- And other super exciting awesome things, perhaps
Only members receive membership benefits, making the organization an evil entity that exists solely for the purpose of denying fans benefits that they didn't pay for.
They really like to write bios for Mini-Cons, apparently.
