It’s an odd pairing– a negotiator and an incendiary automaton designed for mass destruction but that’s par for the course when it comes to G.I. Joe FSS 4 shipments. Can this hot-headed android and this cool intervention specialist get along? Bullhorn and the Inferno BAT might not make for an ideal showdown but this marks the first time that either of them has been updated to generation 3 construction.
The big question is: are these figures worthy additions to any G.I. Joe Collection?
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!
A final G.I. Joe vs. the Transformers set has been revealed at Botcon 2016!
Fun Publications may be in its final year as the show-runner for both the annual Botcon and Joe Con events but that doesn’t mean that they’re slowing down on their exclusive products. Yesterday at Botcon 2016, a brand new G.I. Joe vs. the Transformers set was unveiled– based on the launch of Transformers Generation 2 as it appeared in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero vol 1 #138 – #142!
Eagle-eyed fans will recognize the cast of this particular set but just in case you don’t, here’s the breakdown:
I’ve got to give the folks at Fun Publications credit– this is certain a more interesting-looking set than the second “Only Human” set featuring synthoid Arcee and Rodimus Prime. Joe fans are going to want this set pretty much exclusively for the Ninja Force Scarlett figure and maybe the Dr. Biggles-Jones, the brilliant scientist who was featured heavily in those G.I. Joe vs. the Transformers issues. As far as Cobra Commander– it’s the same figure was last seen in the Dollar General series with some additional paint apps and equipped with the gun Megatron seen in the 2011 SDCC set. I’m not a big enough Transformers fan to tell you if the Megatron and Ratbat figures are highly sought-after repaints or not.
What do you think of this latest G.I. Joe vs the Transformers offering? Are you interested in these sets? Will you be keeping all of the figures or selling off the Transformers? Let us know in the comments below.
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 was just over a week ago that subscribers to G.I. Joe FSS 4 began receiving their second of six shipments with the latest two figures in the line. Today, Chris and Fred pull Barricade and the Cobra Ice Ninja off of their cards and throw them under the review lights!
What did our two intrepid reviewers think of these latest figures from G.I. Joe FSS 4? Did they break new barriers or were they met with a chilly reception? Does Fred keep trying to make inane ice and cold puns? Does Deadpool make yet another cameo? (Like you had to ask…)
These questions and more are answered in two reviews chock-full of banter, obscure sci-fi references and more links to Wikipedia than you can shake a stick at!
Today is the last day to sign up for a 2016 membership to the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club and the folks at Cattle Barron Drive have pulled out all of the stops in encouraging people to sign up by showing off a prototype for Pythona!
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.
“All memberships will end December 31, 2016. Hasbro looks forward to sharing new plans for the Collector’s Club with you in the future.”
Okay, let’s read that again.
“Hasbro looks forward to sharing new plans for the Collector’s Club with you in the future.”
Did you notice something? Nowhere in that statement does it say “Hasbro is ending Transformers and G.I. Joe forever.” It does, however, indicate, that Hasbro will no longer be relying on Fun Publications to administer the Transformers Club and, by implied association, the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club.
