Christmas may have come and gone but the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club has one more present for members: the reveal of the Dreadnok Ground Assault 4WD and Heartwrencher!
Wow… just wow… this one came out of nowhere! Ever since it was announced at the Collector’s Club roundtable back in 2015, fans have speculated about the fate of the club exclusive Dreadnok Ground Assault 4WD with Heartwrencher figure. Now, thanks to the our friend “Shattered Glass Jazz” we have a look at the preview of this upcoming set. (Rick always gets his newsletters before anyone else. I’m thinking he has “mob ties.”)
The G.I. Joe Collector’s Club has completed the Joe Con 2016 Roundtable panel and it was a doozy!
Perhaps the biggest news of Joe Con 2016 concerning the Club came from the Hasbro panel held earlier in the day where it was revealed that Hasbro has decided to continue its relationship with Fun Publications through 2018. Despite rumors and all evidence to the contrary earlier this year, the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club has a two-year lease on life! Whatever transpired in the months since the Club announced that all memberships would end on December 31, 2016 it certainly seemed to be beneficial for the folks at Fun Publications. (Did the Save G.I. Joe petition have any impact?)
Next year’s convention will be June 15 – 18, 2017 at Walt Disney World!
However, the most pressing question on the minds of most G.I. Joe fans out there was “What is the line-up for FSS 5?”
Here are the “Quick Notes” from today’s panel…. including this year’s FSS announcement!
Brian Savage, David Lane, Lanny Lathem, and Pete Sinclair take the stage.
Contract for the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club has been extended for two more years. The Club, FSS, and convention will continue through 2018.
Membership renewals will turn back on later this week.
If your membership ran out in May & June, go to the store, login, and add it to your cart. It should reapply to your account.
Contract was initially NOT renewed. However, this was changed and Brian thanked the fandom for their support, including the petition from Joe Colton. Derryl DePriest is acknowledged as the person who turned things around for the Club.
The renewal only took place in the last two weeks.
