G.I. Joe Club Sub Viper & Wave Crusher now in stock!

Wave Crusher & Sub Viper

The long-awaited Wave Crusher & Sub Viper set is now IN STOCK at the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club store.

Apparently the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club doesn’t care that the new 50th Anniversary product is hitting stores now and that the SDCC exclusives just went up for sale at HTS as today they’ve opened up sales on both the Wave Crusher and the two G.I. Joe / Transformers crossover sets!  After all, aren’t all collectors independently wealthy?

Regardless, this repaint of the 25th Anniversary Night Specter (SHARC) comes complete with an exclusive Sub Viper figure.  It was stated at Joe Con 2015 that sales of future vehicle sets such as the announced Dreadnok Heartwrencher are dependant upon sales of the Wave Crusher and Sub Viper.

If you’re looking to snag the Wave Crusher and Sub Viper, it’s listed for $49.00 at the Club store.

G.I. Joe Club Old Snake & Stealth BATS in stock!

Old Snake & Stealth BATS

The G.I. Joe/Transformers “Old Snake & Stealth BATs” set is now IN STOCK at the G.I.Joe Collector’s Club store!

The past few years have seen more G.I. Joe/Transformers crossovers than I would have thoguht possible including three SDCC exclusives from Hasbro.  This year Fun Publications, the company behind both the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club and the Transformers Collectors Club, announced two different crossover sets– one featuring Marissa Faireborne, the daughter of Flint and Lady Jaye, and a second featuring a beloved character from the Transformers episode “Only Human.”  In this episode, the villain Drath approached an indvidual named “Old Snake” for his synthoid technology, something that Cobra had used numerous times in the G.I. Joe cartoon.  Old Snake, as most fans will immediately recognize, was intended to be the future version of Cobra Commander! Continue reading

G.I. Joe FSS 4 Sign-Up Ends Today

G.I. Joe FSS 4 sign-up ends today at Midnight CST!

G.I. Joe FSS 4 roster

This is it– the last day to sign-up for the entire series of G.I. Joe FSS 4.  This year’s figure subscription service is mix of DiC era characters and international repaints with a long-requested figure of Cobra Commander’s son thrown in for flavor.  It’s the usual mix of repurposed parts with a few new accessories and two new heads from Boss Fight Studio

The Club already released two sets of new teaser images to help drive up enthusiasm for G.I. Joe FSS 4 sign-ups.  The first is a look at the prototype sculpts for Billy, Outback, and Sneak Peek’s periscope.  (This is being sculpted in lieu of a third new head.)

The second set of images has been added to main gallery below.  It’s a series of mock-ups of the backside of each character in the roster.  (There’s a pun in there somewhere.)

Also, for the first time the Club has offered a “hint” of the “13th Mystery Figure” included in this year’s set.  I say “hint” in quotes because the clue presents very little opportunity to discern the character’s identity.

– It will be a Female Figure!
– Features a NEW head sculpt!

Yep– that’s the ENTIRE hint.  Well, that narrows it down to the Baroness, Lady Jaye, Cover Girl, Scarlett, Jinx, Zarana, Pythona, G.I. Jane, Dr. Knox, Munitia, Mistress Armada, Candy Appel, Pale Peony, Shooter, and pretty much every non-male character to ever appear in G.I. Joe.  Let the speculation begin…

G.I. Joe FSS 3 Crimson Guard Immortal Review

FSS 3 Crimson Guard Immortal

The FSS 3 Crimson Guard Immortal has been reviewed!

Whew!  With that, the FSS 3 reviews are done!  As part of the final shipment, the Crimson Guard Immortal was one of the most anticipated figures in the entire FSS.  Originally shown at the 2012 Joe Con as part of the imfamous first “Concept Case reveals”, this figure has been on the fandom’s radar for some time.  When it was announced in 2014 as part of the FSS 3, fans were both surprised and excited for the opportunity to finally get their hands on this “elite of the elite” trooper.

Was the Crimson Guard Immortal worth the wait?  Did Fred and Chris agree on this one?  Is the review full of bad Highlander puns?  Will I stop with the questions and just get to the point already?

Check out the review either by clicking on the picture above or jumping over to the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club Review Index.  Afterwards, leave your own thoughts about this figure in the comments below.
