The G.I. Joe Collectors Club presents… 2014 Convention Exclusive OZONE!

Another notch in the E.C.O. Force belt was revealed today by the G.I. Joe Collectors Club!  Along with the previously revealed Flint, today we get my personal childhood favorite ECO Warriors character, Ozone.

Unfortunately they elected to only show a helmeted image for now, as I’m really dying to see what his head sculpt looks like, but the parts choice is relatively solid.  Color matching is pretty much dead on.

He looks to be using RoC Flash/Resolute Zartan arms, which is great, and PoC Snake Eyes legs, which is… not so great.  Sure the lower legs show off a bit of an armored look, and perhaps I just don’t like them because they were attached to one of my least favorite figures in the PoC era.  Tucked underneath there appears to be the torso from Retaliation “Ninja Duel” Snake Eyes as well. Whatever the case, the entire figure ends up looking really nice and really captures the original’s spirit well.  That Retaliation Cobra Trooper webgear sets it off nicely, too.

Check out the figure at GIJoeCon.com and see the image mirrored below.

G.I. Joe Collectors Club hints that we could see a “Zombie Hunter” today…

Yesterday the reveal of the 12″ uniform set left some folks excited, especially thinking about how that could translate to a 4″ Joe Colton figure, but today it looks like we’re back to the 4″ set whole hog, as the G.I. Joe Con Twitter account posted the following:

Yes, indeed, it looks like we might see another Zombie Hunter today!  Will it be TJbang or Outback?  Keep your eyes squarely on GIJoeCon.com to find out!

G.I. Joe Collectors Club reveals JoeCon 2014 Steel Brigade Commander

True to their word, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has revealed their latest 2014 G.I. Joe Convention exclusive, and it is the Steel Brigade Commander!  As folks have suspected, it is based on the concept case version of the Gold Head Steel Brigade figure.

While the head looks a little bit more yellow than gold in the image, I would suspect the final version ends up being more gold than what we see here.  Regardless, it’s good to see another figure, and considering this is now two figures with no new tooling, I suspect things will really start ramping up with the next few reveals.

First four Figure Subscription Service figures available at Club store

The first half of the FSS 2.0 has been shipped to eager G.I. Joe fans everywhere, but for folks who don’t have a subscription, it’s been a “wait and see” game. For the first four figures (Shipwreck, Airtight, Skullbuster, and Wide Scope) that wait is over!

Check out the GIJoe Collectors Club Store right now to get your hands on the first four FSS 2.0 figure releases, now up for sale.

Sales of the second FSS will directly impact likelihood for a third, and hopefully these figures are deemed popular enough to warrant more to come. I’m hoping we might hear something about FSS 3.0 at the G.I. Joe convention in April.

Go get ‘em.

G.I. Joe Collectors Club posts final sample image of Cross Country

You MUST be a member by March 16th in order to get this figure, and trust me, past years are selling for big bucks right now. It’s only $44 for the year, and it comes with the free figure, plus 12 issues of a really fun newsletter to boot.

GeneralsJoes Reviews FSS 2.0 Tollbooth and Desert Scorpion!

And just like that, GeneralsJoes has caught up on the backlog of reviews! Some free time during the holidays allowed me to go back through the last three Figure Subscription Service shipments and get all caught up on hold over reviews for the first half of FSS 2.0.

Wow…it’s half over already?

Crazy. The amazing thing is, we’ve gotten some nice figures in the first three shipments, but I haven’t even gotten my hands on a few of the figures I’ve been most looking forward to, like Dragonsky, Keel Haul, Big Bear, and of course Cesspool! That means the next three shipments are going to be full of winners. I’m really looking forward to it.

GeneralsJoes Reviews FSS 2.0 Widescope and Skullbuster!

As we march towards 2014, it’s “catch up” time with reviews that have fallen slightly behind. GeneralsJoes covered Shipwreck and Airtight yesterday, and today we’re tackling Wide Scope and Skullbuster. Certainly an eclectic series of choices for the first four figures, but it’s making me pretty excited as we move forward, as there are still a lot of highly desirable figures left to come.

GeneralsJoes Reviews FSS 2.0 Tiger Force Airtight and Shipwreck!

Yes, yes, I know I’m dreadfully late on getting these reviews up, but the good news is, by the end of the week I’ll have all six of them done and posted.  Better late than never, right?

Considering what 2014 looks like so far, we will want to grab these beauties and hold on to them for dear life, what we get from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club might be all we’re getting for the next year or so.

G.I. Joe Collectors Club FSS Shipment 3 hitting mailboxes now

In what can only be described as a surprise, the third shipment of the G.I. Joe Collectors Club Figure Subscription Service has started hitting mailboxes across the United States.

Most folks believed that the shipments would likely continue after the holidays, but some lucky folks have gotten theirs early.

I will refrain from spoiling the surprise here, but you can find the answers you’re looking for at HISSTank.com.

I know I’ve been lax on posting reviews for these, but trust me, this will pick up. I’m hoping to get all six reviews posted before the end of the year. Look out for them!
