What’s on Joe Mind Episode 95 is online! We talk about it all in this one

I know a lot of folks have been commenting that we don’t record new episodes nearly as often as we used to… but the good side of that is, when we do, they end up being 3+ hour marathons covering all sorts of different topics! Episode 95 certainly falls into that category, talking Boss Fight Studio, the late Don Levine with business partner Kirk Bozigian, and voice actor Michael Dobson. Expect the same level of back and forth blather, and relive the excitement of the final 36 hours of the Vitruvian HACKS Kickstarter campaign.

The G.I. Joe Collectors Club FSS 3.0 – The Good the Bad, and the Ugly

Now that the entirety of the third rendition of the Figure Subscription Service has been revealed, I thought it might be a fun idea to recap the full assortment, giving my opinions on each figure. I posted the overview in my GeneralsJoes YoJoe Blog Section, so please check it out if you’re so inclined!

G.I. Joe Collectors Club reveals new Boss Fight head sculpts

Okay, we are officially within the 24 hour window before subscriptions to the FSS 3.0 are over, and the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has shared three of the digital head sculpts that Boss Fight Studio has come up with so far…  Check out the great images of Bombstrike, Big Ben, and Crimson Guard Immortal below.

Random observation… LOVE the Bluetooth earpiece for Big Ben.  What an awesome touch.  If you’re interested in the FSS 3.0 you are officially running out of time!  ORDER IT NOW!

Hit & Run gets his due – G.I. Joe Collectors Club responds to fan requests

Well, a big kudos to the G.I. Joe Collectors Club for taking the feedback from the fandom and making some tweaks to their FSS 3.0 version of Hit & Run. While we didn’t get the Firefly torso of the concept case version (according to the GIJCC, the head sits really loose on top of it and is not fully compatible), we got what looks like a different head, different webgear, and the green skin that so many fans were asking for (myself included).

It’s pretty late in the design stages to be making these changes, so props to the Club for rolling with the punches and making it happen.

Check out the new image below, and make sure you’re thanking them by signing up for the FSS 3.0!

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 GIJoeClub.com 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.

Cobra’s Elite Crimson Guard Immortal unleashed for the FSS 3.0

Only one more reveal left, as the G.I. Joe Collectors Club showed off their FSS 3.0 version of the Crimson Guard Immortal today! Based strongly off the concept case version of the character we saw in New Orleans a couple of years ago, this figure has a brand new head sculpt and his classic double rocket launcher.

G.I. Joe Collectors Club goes International with FSS 3.0 Big Ben

We nearing the end of the FSS 3.0 reveals as today we see the 10th figure in the 13 figure assortment! Today, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has revealed Big Ben, and he’s a pretty fantastic looking update. With a new head sculpt by Boss Fight Studios, Big Ben is made up of some great pieces and looks very ’91 authentic.

The G.I. Joe Collectors Club Slices and Dices… wait, there’s more!

Err, actually no.  There’s no more.  There’s just Slice.  But sometimes that’s enough.

Especially when he’s as amazingly bad ass as this figure is.  NINJA FORCE GREATNESS.

Honestly, I’ve never been really attached to the ninja elements of G.I. Joe (one of the few things that didn’t capture my attention as a youth, aside from Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes) but I always thought the Ninja Force figures had some incredible designs unfortunately weighed down by clunky play features.  Slice is everything great about the 90′s look with none of the draw backs.  Great stuff.

The next FSS 3.0 figure is revealed… Repeater!

It was a bit late in the day today, but the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has revealed their next FSS 3.0 offering, and it is Repeater!

Using the same construction formula as the Night Force version from the Nocturnal Fire convention set, Repeater is decked out in a more accurate vintage paint scheme and comes with a great heavy machine gun.

Check it out at GIJoeClub.com, or mirrored below.
