G.I. Joe Collectors Club reveals more subscription details on Facebook

Many questions have been posed leading up to the G.I. Joe Collectors Club eventual release of information about their subscription service, and the GIJCC has gone to Facebook to answer some of the more pressing concerns.  Hit up their Facebook Page and “like” them to follow the news, as of this posting, they’re only one away from 4,000!

The info reported is as follows:

  • THIS is the Facebook page for the OFFICIAL G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club which is operated under license from Hasbro, Inc. We also operate GIJoeCon which is the ONLY official G.I. Joe Convention.
  • The official website for the Club is www.gijoeclub.com.You are not a member by liking this Facebook page.
  • Officer Level Members (paid) get a monthly magazine and a free figure each year they are an active member. Members also receive special pricing in the online store and free use of the MCAX auction site. There is also a Members Only message board.
  • The Club will soon be offering an add-on service to Officer Level Members which will be a Figure Subscription Service. This will be an additional charge to your paid Club Officer Level Membership.
  • The Figure Subscription will be 2 carded figures shipped every month for 6 months for a total of 12. Subscribers will receive a 13th figure FREE at the end if the subscription period.
  • Figure Subscriptions will only be available to Officer Level (paid) members for a limited time. After the cutoff date, no more subscriptions will be sold for that period of figure mailings.
  • The Figure Subscription and Club Membership are TWO different things and you MUST be an active Officer Level member in order to be eligible for the Figure Subscription.
  • The 12 figures will be known when the Figure Subscription window opens, but the 13th figure will be a secret. (We hope.) Don’t tell when you get yours! :-)
Okay, of course the most important information listed above is that you must be a paid Officer level member of the Collectors’ Club to take part in the subscription.  That was assumed, I think, but not known 100%.  Along with that, we find out that all twelve figures will be known before the sub window opens!
They also mentioned that they hope to start the window for subscribing “in a few weeks”!  Great news all around.  Looking forward to more intel, and thanks to the GIJCC for answering some of these pressing questions.  If you want to get a head start and join the club now, hit up this link to do so.

  1. Hmmm, so you have to buy a membership first and then buy a subscription. For me, being in Canada this is starting to eek it’s way to the $500 range (Membership alone is $84), plus I’m sure a Canaadian sub will be more due to higher shipping costs.

    These figures better be absolutely stellar. Quarrel and Nano-BAT sure won’t do it.

  2. Well, they’ve just convinced me to pass. I was a little interested in a sub, but if I have to fork out (at least) 40 more bucks to join the Officer’s Club, which doesn’t interest me at all, there’s no way I’m subscribing.

    And Hawkwinter’s got a good point; they need to bring out some really top-notch sub figures at this point. The two we’ve seen so far are ones I’d hesitate to pick up for 4 bucks at Ross, much less sub price.

  3. Well, damn. I wasn’t ready to post that yet. What I was trying to say is: I don’t know that I’m going to pay $40 just for the chance to spend more money on this subscription. The first two figures shown don’t interest me at all, so as of right now, I’ll be passing, too. The club needs to show something really impressive to change my mind.

  4. I hate to say it, but there is no way I’m getting involved with this. Honestly, from what we have seen so far I can find much more awesome Joe figures in stores for about 1/4 of the cost. I understand the club has a higher overhead and such but I cannot justify over $350 dollars for 13 G.I. Joe figures. I think the club really needs to reconsider dropping the whole membership aspect being a requirement in order to subscribe. That really seems like a great way to scare off potential subscribers.
