Okay, let’s try this again: the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club will open their online store around NOON CST today. Really. This time they mean it. The email even says so. Again.
Here’s the email from Brian Savage:
“The issue that caused the problem with Friday’s relaunch of the store software has been corrected. We will go live at noon on Monday, August 6, CDT.
We will continue to add our older inventory into the stores each day. We did not want the loading of older inventory to delay the stores’ reopening.
For the Transformers Club members: There is not anything new at this time, we are just updating your store code.
For the Joe Club members:
Once again: note that there are LIMITS on the loose Footloose, carded Footloose and signed carded Footloose membership figures.
You are limited to ONE of each (per membership account) until we see how the demand goes. We can track exactly how many of each are ordered by account. If you place more than one order, we WILL CANCEL all of your orders and charge you a 25% administration fee. Please do not try this as we want as many members as possible to get these figures at the offering price. Quantities are limited.
Thanks for your support!
NOTE: Failure to launch the store a second time does not allow members to charge the club at 25% Annoyance Fee.
In all seriousness, I do with the GIJCC well in trying to get the site back up and running after their internet security debacle earlier this year. However, let’s hope that they’re not putting the cart before the horse with this announcement… again. After all, if NASA can send a rover the site of an SUV to Mars and safely lower it to the ground from a jet-powered flight back via sky crane, surely the club can get their store working again, right?
