G.I. Joe Collectors Club reveals box design for 2015 Convention Set

Sometimes I miss the years where we got actual artwork…  but the tiger print does look neat.  First revealed on the GIJoeCon Facebook Page, check out the image mirrored below.

GeneralsJoes Reviews FSS 3.0 Hit & Run and Alpine

It feels like it’s been a long road to get to this point, but a few days ago, I finally got the Figure Subscription Service Hit & Run in my hot little hands! A figure first uncovered during the Concept Case reveal now almost three years ago. It’s gone through many changes and different iterations since then, but I’m happy to say most of the great things about that figure remain intact.

Not all, but most.

Check out the G.I. Joe Collectors Club review page or click the links below to read my thoughts on both Hit & Run and Alpine! You might be surprised which one gets a higher rank.

Brawl Big at the 2015 G.I. Joe Convention!

Another reveal from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club, and it’s a reveal that promises a Brawlin’ good time in Springfield, Illinois!

Today the Club has shown us their next entry into the Tiger Force team, Big Brawler. Complete with his Brawlin’ shirt and his Brawlin’s sword, and… golden… weapons?

Using what appears to be a mix between Renegades Red Dog and Resolute Roadblock, Brawler stands tall and proud with a lot of firepower. Check out the image below, and keep watching GIJoeCon.com for the latest information!

Latest G.I. Joe Collectors Club newsletter reveals Sub-Viper

While folks have been getting all caught up on G.I. Joe Convention reveals, the Collectors Club slipped in a good look at the upcoming Cobra Wave Crusher w/ Sub Viper that’s being offered as a membership exclusive item for 2015.

Many folks assumed that the Sub-Viper would simply be a Repulsor repaint (since the original was a Sludge-Viper repaint), but I’m happy to say this does not appear to be the case!

While I will not post pictures from the newsletter here, I can say it looks like the Sub Viper build will feature a Rise of Cobra Aero-Viper helmet, 25th Anniversary Barbecue torso, Techno-Viper arms, and Paris Pursuit Snake Eyes legs. It’s a surprisingly effective approximation of the Sub Viper design and a much appreciated departure from Repulsor’s look.

As I said, I won’t be showing the image here, but check out the latest Collectors Club newsletter for a good look.

G.I. Joe Collectors Club reveals Mindbender head sculpt test shot

I think most of us have seen the early image of the Collectors Club incentive Dr. Mindbender figure, but for the first time, the Collectors Club has shown the actual printed test shot of this new head sculpt.

It is impressive to say the least.

If you want to get your hands on this great update to the Cobra mad scientist, make sure you are a fully paid member as of March 16th!

Check out the head sculpt image mirrored below or on the G.I. Joe Collectors Club Facebook Page.

G.I. Joe Convention Undertow trooper posted to GIJoeCon.com

The world continues turning, even with recent events, and with his love of Iron Grenadiers, Gary would have enjoyed today’s reveal.

Today the G.I. Joe Collectors Club showed off their Convention Undertow trooper, a modern update of their own membership exclusive Undertow from several years ago, recolored in Iron Grenadier black, red, and gold.

Using mostly parts from the recently released 50th Anniversary Eel, but in the trademark Iron Grenadier colors, this scuba trooper makes for a solid addition to any modern IG army.  Keep watching GIJoeCon.com and check out the mirrored image below.

For folks longing for Undertow in more classic colors, there is an Undertow Officer slated for release in the Convention boxed set as well… perhaps that will give us 90s fan our classic version that we’d love to see?

 

 

GeneralsJoes Reviews FSS 3.0 Shipment #1

Do I need to maintain spoiler control still?

It’s been a week since the information got out onto the web about who was in the first shipment of the G.I. Joe Collectors Club FSS 3.0…  and some might say a week isn’t quite enough time.

So, for the sake of trying to keep a level of surprise for folks, I won’t mention WHO is in the shipment on this page, but if you click over to the G.I. Joe Collectors Club Review Page you can see who came first, and check out reviews for both figures.

I will refrain from spoiling anything with this post, but if you want to see which two awesome figures the first shipment contains, hit up the G.I. Joe Discussion Group on Facebook and feast your eyes.

Of course, be warned, the first shipment will be spoiled!
