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!
Facebook seems to be the preferred communication method of the G.I. Joe Collector’s Club these days with all of the reveals of the subscription figures. It’s also a place where the Club has been answering questions in “real time” with fans regarding the “still to be revealed” 6 month program. After mining through some of the official posts, I’ve been able to glean the following bits of additional information:
The subscription sign up period will be longer than 2 weeks.
A subscription FAQ will be posted once the sub is available.
Figures produced use Hasbro sculpts and will be shipped on 25A style cards.
You MUST be an Officer-level member of the Collector’s Club to be eligible for the subscription.
The cost-per-figure is likely to be below $25.00 per item. (Due to low production numbers)
The number of figures produced will be based upon the number of subscriptions sold.
Figures will be shipped 2 at a time in special packaging. (Seen below)
