In my haste this morning to post the links to the complete Sunbow series sale I missed another bit of G.I. Joe animation that is on an ever deeper clearance– the DiC G.I. Joe series is also getting the close-out treatment. With low stock remaining, the two volumes of the second G.I. Joe animated series are 70% off. Continue reading →
Many G.I. Joe received an extra present just before the Christmas holiday– the first pair of figures from the G.I. Joe Collector’s ClubFigure Subscription Service had landed on their doorstep! Of course, as soon as those first two figures shipped, fans began to speculate as to when the next round would be arriving. Brian Savage sends out this update to let “eagle eyed” fans know that the wait is almost over:
We are getting ready to prepare the second shipment. We anticipate they they will ship about two weeks from now. Please have any address changes in the system by Wednesday (1/09/13) at 5pm Central Time.
Also, we are planning to do the installment billing for the second payment on or about January 21st. Please ensure that your credit card information is correct and that your debit cards have enough funds. Everyone’s billing amount is different so please refer to your first invoice to know what your amount will be. If you don’t have your invoice, you can log in and look at your order..
For those of you who paid in full, you can ignore the billing information.
Thanks for your support! We hope that you are enjoying your first figure shipment!
Now the speculation begins– with Jinx and Dice already shipped, who will be next?
For those of you that signed up for the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club Figure Subscription Service it’s time for some holiday cheer! The Club announced earlier in the week that some of the FSS orders would start shipping before the holidays and now it seems that some folks have already received theirs!
According to a thread over at HISSTank.com, board member Raginspoon and site admin Destro have received their figures. The Club initially asked that folks not discuss what figures were received until everyone had theirs so as “not to ruin the surprise”. (In other news, fairies are real and unicorns make good bacon!) However, as folks are excited to finally have some of these pieces in-hand pics have been posted over at HISSTank. I don’t want to jinx this with any spoilers but fans are going to be happy, no matter how they slice and dice the reports popping up on the web.
Here’s the shipping announcement from the Club, posted better late than never:
I hope that you are all having a great holiday season so far. Today it was confirmed that our container was aboard a train and headed to the Dallas terminal.
We still don’t have an exact delivery date to our warehouse, but we are anticipating that we will get some of the sets out before Christmas.
The Christmas holiday will probably see the shipments split so please have patience while they are enroute to you.
We now anticipate that they will all be shipped before New Years.
Now, while you’re waiting for your first shipment to arrive, enjoy some PR pics of what is coming to subscribers:
Okay, it’s a mega-update for the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club Figure Subscription Service (aka “Club Sub”) and it’s full of card art and terms and conditions!
First off, over the past few weeks the GIJCC has been releasing images of the card art for all 12 of the revealed FSS figures. Now, this has caused some degree of controversy over the perceived quality of the art. Personally, I feel that’s for each fan to decide on their own. All 12 artwork previews are posted below for your viewing pleasure.
Secondly, the club has released a few head shots of the forthcoming figure including close-ups of Jinx, Topside, Big Boa and, most recently, Iron Klaw. It seems the beret on the former G.I. Joe Extreme cast member is removable!
