G.I. Joe Collectors Club FSS 6.0 Reveal Roundup

So I’ve fallen a bit behind on the FSS 6.0 reveals and the Club has kept pushing them out fast and furious.  Along with Sub Zero, we’ve now seen the following:

Night Stalker Commander

02-GIJCC-FSS-6-Night-Stalker

Based off of the Collectors’ Club’s own 2007 Night Stalker Commander from that year’s Convention Set, it’s a repaint and slight rebuild of their female COBRA Trooper.

Hardtop

03-GIJCC-FSS-6-Hardtop

Using Tollbooth’s head and a nice mix of somewhat recent parts (at least from the waist up, though honestly, those later generation Zap legs ain’t half bad).  This is one of the better reveals so far!

Crosshair

04-GIJCC-FSS-6-Crosshair

I always love seeing some of the new blood from the 2002 – 2005 era getting some plastic love, but this one isn’t real pretty.  That vest is too small and rides way too high.  I can think of several alternatives that would have worked better.  And what’s up with the black collar?

Skip

05-GIJCC-FSS-6-Skip

Yay, Z-Force!  Any excuse to get some cool Z-Force figures are good ones, and Skip looks pretty sharp.  I would have loved a head that allowed for a removable beret, but this is cool, too.

Dojo

06-GIJCC-FSS-6-Dojo

The colors match up, and he’ll look really good next to TJBang.  I don’t really get the use of the Storm Shadow torso underneath the webgear, and it feels like there’s a little too much going on there.  I can think of a few different purposes for that wacky head sculpt, too…

So far we’re halfway through the reveals for the latest Figure Subscription Service… a pretty eclectic group of characters this time around, that’s for sure.

G.I. Joe Collectors Club reveals potential revised Salvo build!

And it is SO MUCH BETTER.

Taking fan feedback into consideration, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has put together another possible build for the Salvo to be included in Figure Subscription Service 5!  Using the G.I. Joe: Retaliation Roadblock body and more accurate text for the shirt makes a TON of difference.

The figure looks 100% better.  Huge thanks to the Club for taking our feedback and bringing together something that really does Salvo some justice.  This is great stuff.

Please note – They still need to check on tooling availability, so this is not yet a done deal.  Everyone keep your fingers crossed that all the parts are available.  Check it out at GIJoeClub.com or the image below.

SO MUCH BETTER.

FSS 5 reveals wrap up (mostly) with Shattered Glass Xamot!

Well, it’s about time!  For over thirty years fans have been clamoring for a Sunbow inspired Tomax and/or Xamot in their Extensive Enterprises suits and now we’ve got them!

Of course, for o-ring fans there was the Crimson Guard 6-Pack from Toys “R” Us which satisfied us somewhat, but this is a full blown modern era version with the right jacket and pants colors and everything.  I’ll have to get a closer look at that flower deco, though…

Check out this final reveal at GIJoeClub.com…  but don’t fret!  There’s still Salvo.  The Club is supposedly working on a new build for him, hopefully we’ll hear something about that shortly as well.  Until then, check out all the FSS 5 entries as we know them now below!

SKAR has a new operative – GIJCC Steel Raven revealed!

Now this is cool.

I loved G.I. Joe: Extreme conceptually, but the figures released in the mid 90s were not up to par with the earlier efforts.  Victims of the 1990s style of toy design, with dramatic sculpted poses and super hero proportions the Extreme figures weren’t necessarily bad for what they were, they just in no way dove-tailed with what had existed in the Real American Hero leading up to that point.

Considering the Kindle Worlds project I’m currently working on, I’m ecstatic to see some movement towards further integration of SKAR into G.I. Joe mythology, and Steel Raven is a great next step after the Iron Klaw we received a few years back.  My hope is that perhaps these are the first few steps towards an expanded SKAR in a convention set, maybe?  Time will tell.

Regardless, this figure looks really fun, and any time we get a character that has never been in toy form before it’s something to celebrate.  Check it out on GIJoeClub.com or mirrored below.

The bad news?  Only one reveal left…well unless you count a revamped Salvo…  can’t wait to see the next entry tomorrow!

 

Figure Subscription Service Sneak Peek revealed!

Hot on the heels of the great news about the Figure Subscription Service Salvo update, we also get a brand new reveal in the form of Sneak Peek!

Using the same basic build as the Tiger Force version from FSS 4 (only with a different vest, this classic Sneak Peek looks pretty good, straight out of the pages of IDW’s Real American Hero comic.  Check out the reveal on GIJoeClub.com or mirrored below.

Salvo Update – The Collectors Club is working on a new build!

Great news from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club today!

Apparently our comments have been heard, and they are indeed rethinking the build for Salvo!

This appeared in a comment thread on Facebook:

Salvo-New-Build

This is great news and I’m thrilled to hear it!  Kudos to everyone who shared their (hopefully respectful) opinion on the subject and enacted some change.  Look forward to seeing what they come up with.

Don’t forget you can pre-order FSS V on GIJoeClub.com now!
