G.I. Joe FSS 3 Bombstrike & Night Creeper Leader Reviewed!

G.I. Joe FSS 3 Bombstrike Night Creeper Leader

The next two G.I. Joe FSS 3 figures have arrived!

We’re one shipment away from the end of G.I. Joe FSS 3 and that means it’s time for two more figure reviews.  This month it’s the unusual pairing of G.I. Joe team member Bombstrike with the affiliate of Cobra – the Night Creeper Leader!

Do this blind-folded ninja master and forward air controller go together like chocolate and peanut butter?  Or is this pairing more of a case of oil and water?  Even more importantly, do Chris and Fred agree on anything when it comes to these two penultimate figures from G.I. Joe FSS 3?

Find out the answers to these exciting questions and more over in the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club Review Index!

 

G.I. Joe FSS 3 Shipment 5 is arriving now!

G.I. Joe FSS 3 Shipment #5 is now shipping!

Thanks to Alyosha of BrokenArrowToys.com, images of the latest G.I. Joe FSS 3 shipments have been posted on Facebook.  Having glanced at the pictures, I can safely say that this is most definitely a “glass half empty/glass half full month” with this shipment containing one of the most anticipated and one of the least desired figures from the entire series.

Want to know more?  Keep reading, Joe fan!  If you don’t want to be spoiled then stop right there! Continue reading

G.I. Joe FSS 3 Shipment 4 is Inbound!

G.I. Joe FSS 3 Shipment 4 is inbound!

It would seem that the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club is doing their best to get caught up on the FSS shipments as shipment #4 has seemingly deployed early!  Of course, with Joe Con 2015 scheduled to occur in just under a month, the Club most likely wouldn’t be able to process shipments as normal at the end of the month.

So, who’s in the shipment this time around? Continue reading

G.I. Joe FSS 3 Spearhead and Vypra Reviewed!

G.I. Joe FSS 3 Spearhead & Max Vypra

It’s Friday!  Time to celebrate with another G.I. Joe FSS 3 review!

There’s nothing quite like the arrival of new G.I. Joe figures to turn an ordinary Monday into something a bit more exciting!  In this latest G.I. Joe FSS 3 shipment, subscribers were treated to new versions of the G.I. Joe Pointman and the newly minted Cobra Courier.

Always eager to examine new figures, Chris “Werecat” Chung of JoeSightings.com and I tossed the figures under the review lens. Were these two figures worth the wait?  Did the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club hit another set of home runs or did these two fall somewhat short?  Is Max really related to Chester Cheetah?

Find out the answers to these exciting questions and more over at the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club Review Index!

Plus, feel free to leave your own thoughts on these two new arrivals in the comments below!

It’s that time again– when a new shipment from the G.I. Joe FSS is arriving on subscribers doors.  Thanks to Alyosha of BrokenArrowToys.com, we’ve got images of this latest arrivals. This month it’s another Nocturnal Fire alumni and a repainted G.I. Joe Retaliation figure.    If you haven’t already guessed, I’m talking about Spearhead & Max and Vypra!

G.I. Joe FSS 3 Muskrat and Slice Reviews!

g.i. joe fss 3 shipment 2

The G.I. Joe FSS 3 Muskrat and Slice reviews are up!

It seems like just a few weeks ago that my esteemed colleague from JoeSightings.com and I put forward our thoughts on the first G.I. Joe FSS 3 shipment from the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club!  In their efforts to get their shipping schedule back on the track, the Club shipped out the next two figures just before the end of January.

So, what did Chris and I think of the unlikely duo of Muskrat and Slice?  Do a Swamp Fighter and a Ninja Commando go together like peanut butter and chocolate or is this a case of repaint overload?  Does Deadpool make another cameo appearance in the pictures again?  Or, more importantly, are these two figures worth adding to your G.I. Joe collection?

You can check out both reviews and find out two Joe fans’ opinions in the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club Review Index!

G.I. Joe FSS 3 Shipment 2 is Inbound!

G.I. Joe Collector's Club Figure Subscription Service logo

G.I. Joe FSS 3.0 Shipment 2 had deployed just under the wire to make the January deadline!

Yesterday on Facebook, Alyosha of BrokenArrowToys.com shared images of his new arrived FSS 3.0 shipment!  Yes, we’re going to discuss the figures so if you’re one of the few folks out there that want to be surprised, look away.  (Seriously– we’re not going to play games.  Figures will be named.)

Okay, still here?

It’s Slice and Muskrat!

FSS 3 shipment 2

I’ve mirrored some of Alyosha’s images of G.I. Joe FSS 3.0 shipment 2 below.  Note: his Slice figure arrived with two right arms including one arms that was altered seemingly at the factory level to appear to be normal.  (The thumb on the left arm was sliced off.  Ironic, eh?  “Sliced”?  Get it?  Never mind…)

Muskrat is a repaint of the 2013 Nocturnal Fire version and Slice seems to be primarily built on the Renegades Storm Shadow/ Retaliation Red Ninja body so, aside from the color scheme and the new head, there’s not a lot that fans already haven’t seen here.   Still, these two guys are inbound so subscribers should keep their eyes peeled toward their mailbox this week for the new arrivals from the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club.

As always, stay tuned to JBL for a new review of these figures once they arrive at JBL HQ!

G.I. Joe FSS 3.0 Repeater & Psyche-Out Review

G.I. Joe FSS Repeater & Psyche-Out

 

After a long dry spell, fans have new G.I. Joe FSS 3.0 figures!

This past week, subscribers of the G.I. Joe FSS 3.0 were frantically checking their mailboxes as shipping notices indicated that new figures were inbound!  Repeater and Psyche-Out, boasting their original vintage color schemes, comprised the first shipment– fresh off their appearance in the 2013 Nocturnal Fire convention set!  Thankfully on Friday, these two Joes dropped at JBL HQ which means that Chris “Werecat” Chung of JoeSightings.com and I have had the weekend to give them a once over.

Do these G.I. Joe FSS 3.0 figures measure up to their parts predecessors?  Are they worthwhile additions to an ARAH generation 3 collection?  Were these figures from G.I. Joe Collector’s Club worth the wait?

Head on over to the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club Review Index and find out two Joe fans opinions!
