As some of you might have noticed, the latest Collector’s Club newsletter seemed to get ahead of itself with regards to the “ever-forthcoming” Figure Subscription Service from the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club.
Last night, members of the club received the following update:
Here is the update for the Figure Subscription Service: When we published the last club magazine, we thought that we had the FSS finished but we found another set of bugs. We are still hoping to finish this any day as they are very close.
We apologize for this dragging out as we never intended for it to take this long. We are just as frustrated as you are, so please hang in there. The end date will be adjusted accordingly.
Thanks for your understanding and support,
So, the news is that there is no news. While I can understand that this is a brand new endeavor for the club and that there is a bit of a learning curve, it would seem that the PR branch of GIJCC has been putting the “cart before the horse” pretty frequently by speaking well before things were ready. All of the momentum that was gained by the image releases last year will have to be regained in order for this to be a true break-away success. Hopefully the folks in Texas can get things sorted out in due time and can give us some actual concrete information in the near future.
