Never saw these before: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons- ... maged.html

And scroll down to the bottom and take a glance at the Battlechargers too:

Or do one big poo in the morning and another one in the afternoon. I bet they weren't even excited by and then subsequently disappointed by Star Wars Prequels. Or have a glass full of spare change near their beds. That they don't have.

The Jumpstarters are customs, and the Battlechargers were TFCC exclusives. Runamuck wasn't that hard to get since he was the club freebie last year, but Runabout was exclusive to their shop for about a day before they sold out.

As luck would have it, their system was compromised since several months before, and everyone had to cancel their cards and possibly dispute fraudulent charges. Needless to say it was a big event, and the club made it worse by denying any fault of their own for weeks before acknowledging they might have a problem, and then admitting it sometime afterwards. They even had the balls to send out links to articles on how to avoid identity theft before admitting they were compromised.

But of course most of the fandom has ADD and forgot about the mess shortly after the club revealed their figure subscription service.

In case no one saw it, there is a good third-party Generations-style Topspin/Twin Twist set.
