Another week and another set of reveals from the Club. This week the GI Joe Collectors Club unveiled Lt. Clay Moore and Lance “Clutch” Steinberg. Lt. Clay Moore is based off the Sunbow Character from the episode The Traitor (Part II). The Club also produced him as part of the 2007 “Tanks for the Memories” set. I always enjoy seeing new characters that we really have not received from Hasbro so overall I enjoy this character. I think the overall build of the character is good. I have seen some complaints about the grenades being a little high on his neck and I echo those thoughts. With that said I still feel he looks good and will look great leading the Cobra Shock Troops.
The second reveal we got this week was for Lance “Clutch” Steinberg. The figure is based on the ’84 version and includes a removable helmet and work cones. Released in ’84 as the driver of the VAMP the FSS version looks great and stays true to the original. I have always been a fan of the VAMP and I can’t wait to see him paired up with his vehicle.
We currently sit half way through the reveals of FSS 8.0 and so far so good. Most of the figures look pretty good and I can’t wait to see the rest of the reveals. Make sure to head over to the Club website and sign up before May 2 to be part of FSS 8.0.
