The G.I. Joe Club just sent out an email outlining a plan to allow Officer-level member access to all 2008 newsletters as .PDF files over the next week. Then by the end of the month, the Club promises to start getting the 2009 issues posted and available online on a more regular basis as well.
This is terrific news. Losing the online newsletter was a big blow to Club members over a year ago, and it seems like its been a long, hard road back to getting them online again. Sounds like we’re moving in the right direction, though, and I’m thrilled to hear it. For more info on the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club, check out GIJoeClub.com. The actual text of the email is quoted below:
“In addition, for the Officer’s Level members, over the next week we will be loading for your reference all of the 2008 Club Magazine pdfs. By the end of the month, we will start putting up the 2009 mags in a new online readable format.”
Keep on checking the Q & A page as links are being furiously added! Curiously, three major sites (HissTank, JoeBattleLines, and YoJoe) have not yet posted answers, but the vast majority of other sites have. There are currently thirteen active links to various other forums for their answers.
A lot of it is the “same old same old” but at least with a strong showing of interest in Resolute and the COBRA Island 7-Packs, Hasbro will get the message that there is a demand for that stuff.
EDIT – Upon the request of Paramount Motion Pictures, I’ve removed the image that was leaked on other sites. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Topless Robot has come through with a picture of what appears to be a masked Destro from the upcoming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA motion picture. This is unconfirmed information at this point, but seems to cooberate the look of the action figure that appeared on eBay March 11th. Pic is mirrored below:
