The Stall Family Tree is complete – FSS 3.0 Bombstrike unveiled!

The last figure from the latest Figure Subscription Service has been revealed, and she looks pretty great. Fans have been clamoring for Bombstrike for quite a while now (especially since FSS 1.0 gave us her two brothers) and it’s great to see such a successful end result.

She sports a newly sculpted Boss Fight Studio head with Renegades Scarlett torso and what looks like the Rise of Cobra Cover Girl arms and legs. Love the black shirt underneath the tan flak vest…and really love that the Stall family has been wrapped up. Of course this makes it just a bit more annoying (to me) that the FSS Barrel Roll is the DTC re-hash instead of the blue and gray like it should have been. Thankfully I have a custom that satisfies that little requirement in my universe, though.

Kudos to the Collectors Club for a very nice looking Figure Subscription Service. My own personal issues with Hit & Run aside, I’m quite happy with most of the selections, and I think they did take some time and listen to the fans, especially when it comes to getting normal versions of the Night Force characters out there. Here’s hoping fan input can make some impact with the end result for Hit & Run as well. Regardless I think things look good, and I’ll be excited for pretty much every package to arrive at my door.

Check out Bombstrike below, and then I’ve also mirrored every single FSS figure to date so you can see them all together. Keep watching for the latest info and announcements! Make sure you hit their FSS Subscription Page as well and order up a set! Registration won’t be open much longer.



Official Press Images of SDCC 2014 “Danger at the Docks”

Hasbro’s Public Relations firm has made available the high resolution press photos for the ComicCon 2014 “Danger at the Docks” set. This set begins as an SDCC Exclusive, but then should be available at Toys “R” Us following the debut in San Diego.

I know there has been some confusion about the availability of this set, but as first reported right here on YoJoe, the intention is for this set to be available at Toys “R” Us following its release at SDCC. You can find some images below, including a great shot of some brand new accessories built just for this set!

Thanks as always to Hunter PR for making these images available.

Help fund a new backdrop for the G.I. Joe Convention

If you attended the G.I. Joe Convention in Dallas this year, you likely took a picture in front of the special “explosion” backdrop that was featured there. What folks may not realize is that this backdrop was fully paid for by a devoted G.I. Joe fan, and the reaction it received has encouraged him to try something new and exciting for JoeCon next year!

The only catch? It’s an expensive proposition and he needs your help to fund it.

Ted has started a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the next Photographic Backdrop for the G.I. Joe Convention! All of the details are on this YoJoe thread, and you can find the Kickstarter campaign right here. He’s not asking for much, so let’s see what we can do to help this get off the ground.
