G.I. Joe Collectors Club FSS 4.0 Reveals and Orders start next week!

I hope we’ve all recovered from our 2015 G.I. Joe Convention spending, because the time is coming for FSS 4.0!

According to an e-mail from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club next week will begin the reveals for the upcoming fourth installment of the Figure Subscription Service as well as orders opening. I’m pretty excited for the reveals, considering the number of great sounding figures that are on tap for this year.

In case you don’t remember, this is what we have to look forward to:

  1. Barricade
  2. Billy (Cobra Commander’s son)
  3. Bullhorn
  4. Interrogator
  5. Law & Order
  6. Cobra Inferno B.A.T.
  7. Nunchuk
  8. Night Creeper (Ice Ninja)
  9. Pathfinder
  10. Jammer (Z-Force Communications)
  11. Tiger Force Sneak Peek (UK Repaint)
  12. Tiger Force Outback (UK Repaint)

Not a bad figure in the bunch! Pretty excited to see the final results.

Keep watching GeneralsJoes for the latest images and info!

Next Figure Subscription Service figures are inbound!

If getting inundated with new convention figures over the past two weeks didn’t quite satisfy your need for new G.I. Joe, the latest delivery of FSS figures is also hitting mailboxes right now!

No spoilers in this post, but check your mailboxes, Joe fans.

This is the last shipment before the big final three-figure bonanza, so get ready for the big figure number thirteen reveal coming soon.

We’ve got four figures that we know about still to come:

– Bombstrike
– Night Creeper Leader
– Big Ben
– Crimson Guard Immortal

Two of them are en route. Giddy up!

Pictures from the Hasbro display cases – G.I. Joe Convention 2015

I know most of this has been explored in depth, but I wanted to be sure to get my own images taken and uploaded just to complement what’s already there and to potentially reveal any little details that may have been otherwise overlooked.

I’m just doing an image dump today, but as always I’ll go back and prepare a “SuperPage” outlining what to expect in full detail.

Check out the image dump below.

G.I. Joe and Transformers “Crossover” Figures announced and revealed

Along with the Figure Subscription Service news and the info about the upcoming 2016 Membership figures, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club also provided more information about upcoming “Crossover” exclusives.

They revealed a look at Stealth BAT and Old Snake as well as in hand samples for Marissa Fairborne and Afterburn.  The Club also mentioned they hope to have Fairborne/Afterburn for sale at Botcon, and they would have an allotment available to both the G.I. Joe and Transformers Collectors Clubs!

Check out images from the slideshow as well as some images of the in hand samples below.

Another closer look at a G.I. Joe Convention Exclusive – Iron Anvil

Over on the G.I. Joe Con Facebook Page, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has posted a nice close up image of the upcoming Iron Anvil from the 2015 G.I. Joe Convention boxed set!

This gives us a good look at the actual figure, plus the incredible Boss Fight Studio head sculpt that translates the ’94 Cobra Viper into modern era perfection.

Check out GIJoeCon on Facebook, and the images mirrored below.

G.I. Joe Collectors Club NON Attending Registration ends tonight

Today at 5:00pm Central time, registration for NON attendees of the 2015 G.I. Joe Convention will be closed!  If you want a Homefront Heroes set, now is the time.  Check out the full email below.

Hello everyone,
Non-Attending Registration for GIJoeCon 2015 ends at 5pm Thursday Central time.

There are 71 sets left as of this morning in the Non-Attending allocation. Don’t miss out, this is on track for a sellout!

In addition, we still have sets reserved for late attending registrations at the show. If you are interested in coming, and did not have a chance to register, come at 8:30 AM on Friday, April 10, to the Prairie Capital Convention Center in Springfield, IL. Availability is subject to the remaining stock on hand.

Please read these rules:

1. You will need to be an active member of the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club to register. You can join at the same time.

2. This alternate registration system does not have the help or rule control our regular system does. Therefore, you will need to go slowly and make sure you follow the rules for what packages are allowed. Once the registration is placed we cannot edit it. We can only delete it which will cause you to have to re-register correctly and you may lose the items in your order.

3. Each order will be reviewed and approved. You can tell if it is approved by logging back in, go to My Account, view your Order History and look in the shipping column. If it says Not Shipped, it has not been approved yet. If it has a ship date, it has been approved. This can take up to 3+ days due to the volume. Registration for Non-Attending will close on Thursday at approximately 5pm Central Time.

After the convention, we will mark them not shipped so that when they do come in, and are shipped to you, the ship date will be correct.

Due to all of the congestion in China and the west coast shipping terminals, we estimate that these will ship to you in June. If the time frame improves, we will let you know.

4. For the 3 3/4″ loose sets, you are only allowed one loose figure set per 3 3/4” boxed set. If you pick more sets than you chose for boxed sets, we will delete your registration. Once these run out we will remove them from the software so if you don’t see them in the system, they are sold out.

5. If you have an attending registration and didn’t get the loose set, you CANNOT order a non-attending loose set. If this occurs, we will cancel the order.

6. An admin fee is added to each order’s shipping cost in the amount of $7.

Please go to GIJoeCon.com to register for Non-Attending Sets. Click the registration button. You may order more than one set.

Thanks for your patience and support!

Some additional Convention details from GIJoeCon FAQ

Over the past few weeks, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has been posting updates to their FAQ to try and answer some fan questions.

A couple of responses have been posted that add some clarity to Convention activities.  First and foremost, there unfortunately will be no parachute drop this year, due to the convention locale and not being able to get a site together.

Parachute figures will be sold in the Club store starting Thursday night, with the hopes that there will be enough for everyone:

Q: Has the parachute drop been confirmed one way or the other yet?
A: Unfortunately, the venues we were trying to get for the drop did not work out. Therefore, there will not be a drop this year. However, you will be able to purchase the parachute figure starting on Thursday night and it will be very close for everyone to get a figure.

Now, the big question… how much money are we talking?  This response sheds considerable light on things.  The responder mentions $600 for all 3 3/4″ items and $200 for the 12″ items.  Looking at the price list for last year, the total was closer to $430 for all 3 3/4″ items:


Now, who knows if the $600 includes any apparel, and the FAQ clarifies that this does include one large vehicle.  As an aside, the FAQ also makes reference to an “additional souvenir” as well…

Q: How much money should I bring to buy all of the 2015 convention exclusive souvenirs?
A: Costs have gone up because of the complexity of the deco on the items and air freight caused by the dock workers issues on the west coast. There is also an additional souvenir item this year and one that is a large vehicle. If you want to get one of everything you will need approximately $600 for the convention 3 3/4″ items and $200 for the 12″ items.

That is…  quite a jump in price.  But without knowing the specifics it’s hard to make a judgement.  We’ll all see in a little more than a week!
