The Micronauts set will be available at the Hasbro booth at SDCC 2016 from July 21 – 24 and with limited stock available after the show at HasbroToyShop.com. They’ll also be making an appearance at Fan Expo Canada from Sept. 1-4 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.
The SDCC 2016 Micronauts set includes modern reissues of three original line characters including:
While I would never considered myself a life-long Micronauts fan I’m just old enough to have had a few figures from the line as a kid– including Pharoid. Granted, I was probably too young to truly appreciate him (which explains why he’s missing ALL of his accessories now) but seeing him included in the set tugs on the nostaligic heartstrings in such a way that I’m going to do my darndest to try and acquire one of these SDCC 2016 Micronauts sets when they drop on HTS post-show. I still have enough vague memories of the old Micronauts commercials from TV to get excited about their inclusion in the Hasbro Cinematic Universe!
WOO HOO!!! New Joes are coming!!!! Even though this a “quiet year” for the brand, the G.I. Joe 2016 lineup offers, to borrow a phrase, “something old, something new.” The hard-to-find Zombie Vipers are a nice boon to collectors– especially since they will be packed two to a case. In addition, new characters like Stiletto and Tombstone counter-balance the inclusion of Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes. Plus, as it was pointed out by Chris John on the JBL Facebook page, the female Cobra Officer looks a bit familiar.
“Careful Destro, she’ll cost you your ancestral home!”
What do you think of the G.I. Joe 2016 line-up? Will be be adding any of these to your collection? Let us know in the comments below, over on the JBL forums, or on the JBL Facebook page!
Okay, yes, these have been arriving for a few days now. The JBL admin was hoping that his Pythona would have arrived by now so that I could shoot some actual in-hand photos. Sadly, the US Postal Service seems to have other plans. Thankfully, my writing partner-in-crime Chris Chung came through with a couple of photos last night. Plus, the “Legendary” Tom Brooks snapped a few killer photos that he posted on Facebook last night.
It’s been three weeks since the last shipment from G.I. Joe FSS 4 and the Collector’s Club is staying pretty true to their word about the frequency of shipping. A few subscribers have already started to receive the latest shipment and, thanks to the ever-generous Alyosha of BrokenArrowToys.com, we’ve got images of the latest arrivals.
For those of you who prefer to be surprised, turn away now as were going to reveal who’s in the G.I. Joe FSS 4 box after the jump! Continue reading →
One’s a DiC era Jungle Warfare specialist with a penchant for heavy machine guns and landscaping equipment! The other’s UK Z-Force communication specialist that bears a striking resemblance to the G.I. Joe team‘s original Ranger from Detroit. Together, they keep the world safe for freedom! That’s right Joe fans– this month’s G.I. Joe FSS 4 Review odd couple is none other than Pathfinder and Jammer!
It’s been nearly two weeks since the last G.I. Joe Collector’s Club FSS 4 boxes arrived in the mailboxes of subscribers. Chris and Fred took these figures and once again put them under the G.I. Joe FSS 4 review lens– and this time they even brought along a special consultant on one of the figures!
Are these two worth picking up? Do Chris and Fred find anything to agree on? Does Deadpool continue his string of gratuitous cameo appearances? These questions will indeed be answered in the latest G.I. Joe FSS 4 Review installments. Check out both Jammer & Pathfinder over on the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club Review Index!
G.I. Joe FSS 4 shipment 3 is now arriving! That’s right– thanks to the accelerated delivery timetable of the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club, FSS 4 shipments are hitting subscribers’ mailboxes about every three weeks!
It’s true, Joe fans! G.I. Joe FSS 4 shipment 2 is heading to your mailboxes! Subscribers should be their coveted brown cardboard boxes within the next few days as these “mystery figures” make their way all around the globe.
Thanks to Alyosha of Broken Arrow Toys, pictures of G.I. Joe FSS 4 shipment 2 have surfaced online. We’re going to share them below so if you’re one of those fans that don’t want “teh sooprize reveeled” then avert your eyes as we’re holding back nothing.
Two new reveals from the Joe Con 2016 have dropped tonight! Almost the entire set has now been revealed as fans can feast their eyes on Sky Patrol Drop Zone and the Cobra Black Vulture!

Is the Marissa Fairborn & Afterbreaker two-pack worth your hard-earned cash? Did Otto finally convert over to being a full-time Transformers fan? The answers to these questions and more can be found over at the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club Review Index!
The G.I. Joe Classic Clash two-pack review has been posted!
He’s a native American tracker with a degree in psychology who can find anyone anywhere. He’s a former assasin who comes from an ancient and mysterious ninja clan who once served as the bodyguard for the “most dangerous man alive.” Together– they comprise the G.I. Joe Classic Clash two-pack!
Who’s the better figure – Spirit or Storm Shadow? Does either one of them know where Freedom is? Will Deadpool make a cameo? Does any of these even matter?
