YO JOE!

G.I. Joe Collectors Club kicks off FSS 4 Subscriptions with a pair of reveals!

They told us last week that the FSS 4 subscription period would open this week, and indeed they’ve kicked it off today with a pair of brand new FSS reveals!

Barricade and Jammer have been shown so far, and already begin what looks to be a very interesting and eclectic roster for the fourth Figure Subscription Service. Straight from Battle Corps, Barricade is sporting his gold and blue armor, with Jammer’s Z-Force look fitting in nicely with Quarrel from the first FSS.

I’m eager to see what else is up their sleeves! Keep watching GIJoeClub.com, and I’ll post the e-mail below.

We are now taking subscriptions for the next GIJCC Figure Subscription Service!  Release 4.0 is going to be a fantastic addition to your collection. You are an active member of the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club you can subscribe now through Tuesday, June 9th.

Mock-up images will be released today through the end of the subscription period. All images will be uploaded at GIJoeClub.com before the period ends.

Please note that these are photoshop mock-ups and the final product may vary.   Also note that the colors are approximate as everyone’s computer screen has a different look/calibration.

The cost of the 12 figure subscription service is $324 (+ shipping for 6 shipments). You can pay all at once or in three installments of $108 (billed to your credit card). When you subscribe and choose pay by Installment, you will be billed for the first two month’s shipments. Then sometime during the second month of shipping (estimated to be November/December), you will be billed for the 3rd and 4th months’ shipments and sometime during the 4th month of shipping (estimated to be January/February) you will be billed for the final 2 months’ shipments.

Please note that for the installment payment option, there is a $5 service charge per billing while the pay in full option has one $5 service charge.  Please also note that for installment buyers, there is an additional charge each time a billing is attempted if your card is not approved. If your card has been declined and we have to rebill, we will only be able to retry your billing three (3) times before your subscription is cancelled. Each retry has an additional fee added to your total charge (please see the Terms and Conditions.)

This Figure Subscription Service is a “build to order process” so you can order as many as you like, until the order period closes. At that time, we will not process anymore subscriptions and we may/may not have additional figures in the club store at a higher per figure price.  Final figures colors/names/accessories may vary from the above descriptions and pictures.

Thanks for your support!

Robert Atkins and IDW team up for awesome action figure variant covers

Exciting news for folks who love the aesthetic of a carded G.I. Joe figure, but don’t quite have a few thousand bucks in the bank to scatter them across your walls.

Robert Atkins is teaming up with IDW to produce an exciting carded figure variant cover for G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #215!

There is really neat artwork on the front and the back, replicating an old school carded G.I. Joe figure.  This is what Robert has to say:

“A new exclusive line of variant GI JOE covers has just been released! The first of the line is this Snake Eyes carded figure cover. Check out MORE Great ART and their website to purchase the exclusive limited cover. Signed covers should be available soon, or Robert Atkins will be at Heroes Con and NYCC to sign books this year! Special discounted pricing on books is available if you order now through June 13th.”

Check out MoreGreatArt.com to pre-order a copy now, and be on the look out for some more great updates.
Also, there is a good possibility Atkins and IDW will want to do more of these and they want some fan input… so what five figures would you like to see on the covers of IDW Comic Books like this one?  Spread the word and share your opinions!  Check out the images below.

The NerdRAHtio Podcasts breaks some awesome news from The Loyal Subjects

Over the past few days, we’ve seen some teasers from the Loyal Subjects about their next series of G.I. Joe themed toys, and by all indications, things are looking really awesome!

The first run through of Loyal Subjects product was pretty fun in a non-articulated vinyl figure kind of way (though to be fair, they did have some articulation) but this new iteration?  It looks downright spectacular.

The guys from the Nerdrahtio Podcast took some time to talk with Jonathon Cathey from The Loyal Subjects who revealed some very cool news about the upcoming G.I. Joe line, as well as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Masters of the Universe.  Some really great intel is in the recording, so you gotta check it out.  We find out what to expect from the first two G.I. Joe waves.  You don’t want to miss it!

Check out the latest episode right here, take a peek at all of their images here, and I’ve mirrored a couple of the G.I. Joe ones below.  Great stuff!

Latest Hot Toys Avengers is a Vision of greatness

Yeah, that was bad, I apologize.  But it’s true.

Paul Bettany’s role as Vision in the new Avengers: Age of Ultron movie was a thing of beauty, evoking just the right mixture of compassion and bad-assery, and now you can own the Vision in 12″ form.

Hot Toys revealed the first images this morning, and now Sideshow Collectibles has him up for pre-order, and I have to say, as one expects these days from Hot Toys, he looks spectacular.  Look, he even comes with his own mini-Mjolnir!

Check out the pre-order right here, and take a peek at the images below.

Backflip Studios G.I. Joe Strike Mobile Game nears U.S. Launch

At least one would assume. G.I. Joe Strike, the new G.I. Joe mobile game from Backflip Studios has appeared on the Google Play store website, but for most American users has been labeled as not available in their country or for their devices.

This likely means the game is now available Internationally in certain regions, and should be coming to the United States shortly!

If you’re an International fan and want to see if it’s available check this link.

Otherwise, keep watching and keep hoping, it should be arriving very soon.

Help fight cancer and snag some rare toys from former Hasbro PR guy Joe Moscone

Anyone who has visited JoeCon, Toy Fair, or SDCC over the past several years likely ran into Joe Moscone, one of the stalwart PR professionals who at one point helped Hasbro interface with the fans and threw his considerable support behind our favorite brands.

Every year Joe launches a fundraising campaign to support cancer research, and this year he continues that great fight.  As an added edge, though, he is holding a series of eBay auctions, where 100% of the proceeds go to this terrific fund Receptions for Research.

You can find the current eBay auctions right here, and if you’re not into the eBay scene, consider just supporting his cause directly.  It’s a great thing, and you’ll be throwing your support behind someone who spent many years supporting our favorite toy and entertainment properties.

NOTE: The eBay page hosting the auction is Joe’s girlfriend’s, Caitlin Elgin, who is also part of the fundraising team—the New Jersey Grabowskis.

Take a few minutes to do what you can… it’s a great cause and you can get some great toys while you’re at it.  How can you go wrong?
