G.I. Joe Collectors Club reveals 2016 Incentive Mike Power the Atomic Man!

Ohh, man.  While Pythona is convincing me to remain a 3 3/4″ themed member of the G.I. Joe Collectors Club in 2016, I can confirm without hesitation that I will be also purchasing Mike Power.  As most folks know, I love me some science-fiction mixed in with my G.I. Joe, and it doesn’t get much better than the Atomic Man!  With an actual LED eye and clear bionic limbs, this 12″ figure looks BOSS.  Of course now, if I pick him up, suddenly I’m going to feel like I have to go back and get all these other Adventure Team figures, too…  must… resist.

Anyway, check out the first revealed images below as well as the press release.  Good looking stuff!

NEW from the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club for 2016!

 

In 2015, the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club offered the first ever GLOW-IN-THE-DARK 12” G.I. Joe action figure! Doctor Isotope is his name, and he is the membership incentive figure for G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club this year. Anyone who had an active Club membership on March 16 of 2015 received Dr. Isotope in the mail at no additional cost. This unique figure is a villain bent on power and destruction, but as we all know, every great villain needs a strong hero to stand against him!

 

For 2016, the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club is raising the bar once again by offering a new version of the Classic 1970s figure – MIKE POWER THE ATOMIC MAN, a 12” inch figure which featured clear limbs and an eye that could be made to “blink” by blocking and unblocking the plastic pipe which carried light from the circle on top of the figure’s head to his right eye.

 

The NEW Atomic Man from the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club will feature kung fu grip hands, clear legs, a clear arm and an ALL-NEW head design which will include an electronic LED light up eye activated by tugging on his Adventure Team dog tag! The figure will come dressed in tee shirt, shorts, and white shoes based on the RARE vintage uniform from the Secret Mountain Outpost for Atomic Man produced in the 1970s. To add to the fun there will be an accessory uniform set for Atomic Man available for separate purchase!

 

To get the NEW Electronic Mike Power Atomic Man 12” figure, be sure to join the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club by March 16, 2016. With the NEW Atomic Man as a member of the Adventure Team, evil (and Doctor Isotope) won’t stand a chance!

Ladies and gentlemen…we have a BILLY!

It’s been nearly 30 years since he first appeared in the Marvel Comics, a young member of the Cobra youth. He evolved quite a bit since his first appearance, attempting to assassinate his own father, Cobra Commander, losing limbs in a rocket attack from Scrap Iron, and eventually falling under the tutelage of Storm Shadow.

Throughout the years, Billy has become one of the most critical pieces of the G.I. Joe comic book mythology, yet he has never had his own action figure.

Until now.

The Collectors Club revealed their final FSS IV installment today, and it’s none other than Billy himself, for the first time ever. Representing his commando look from the Devils’ Due comics (YES) Billy looks pretty darn good. A very basic build with an exciting new head sculpt, but I think it works remarkably well. This will fill a big hole in comic fans’ collections.

Check out the mirrored image below, and don’t forget to hit up GIJoeClub.com by midnight on July 15th to sign up for FSS IV!

Figure Subscription Service Ice Ninja Night Creeper

As we near the end of the week, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has revealed their second to last FSS IV figure, the Night Creeper Ice Ninja!

Using the same formula as the Concept Case Night Creeper with the ’98 three pack paint scheme, this is a really nice looking figure in stark white colors.  Check out GIJoeClub.com for the latest FSS subscription info and the image is mirrored below.

Bring on Billy!

G.I. Joe Collectors Club FSS IV Bullhorn revealed

Continuing their FSS IV reveals, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has shown off their version of Bullhorn today, taking inspiration from the 90s version…well, the only version unless you count the Club’s own take from 2008.

It’s a good looking figure that is certainly based on the 1990 version with some good modern parts and great accessories. In my younger days, Bullhorn joined Hit & Run as being “boots on the ground” for the next generation of G.I. Joe, so I’m excited to see him here.

G.I. Joe Collectors Club reveals FSS IV Tiger Force Outback

The Figure Subscription Service reveals are officially in full swing, and the Collectors Club has now revealed Tiger Force Outback!

A great looking new head, and the tiger deco on the shirt came out great, though I would have enjoyed a slightly updated build. The 25th Anniversary one isn’t terrible, but those arms… just feels like better stuff was available recently.

That being said, it’s a good deco, and they nailed the most important part, which was the tiger pattern on the shirt.

FSS IV Order Period continues, Interrogator revealed!

While the folks at Fun Publications were ramping up for Botcon, they put FSS IV reveals on hold to focus on the task at hand.

Now Botcon is over and the latest Figure Subscription Service is open for business again.  To celebrate the launch, the Club has revealed Interrogator!

A personal favorite character of mine (I still can’t believe in FSS 3 & 4 we got or are getting Hit & Run, Vypra, and Interrogator.  Too cool.) I am pretty particular about how Interrogator should be represented.  We’re fortunate enough to have a few good sources of inspiration for the character, from the awesome ’91 original to the Direct To Consumer “Viper Lockdown” version which is pretty amazing.  Here, the Club is taking a different approach.

This Interrogator draws some inspiration from older models, but also adds some nice newness.  Using Retaliation Cobra Commander’s torso and arms with Artcic Destro’s legs there is some nice armor and some great black and gray offsets.  I’m not wild about the re-use of the 2010 Convention helmet (really if they’d used the Retaliation Cobra Commander head along with the torso and arms with a red faceplate it would have worked) but the rest of the figure surprisingly appeals to me.  I like that he’s more combat ready, and goes in a bit of a different direction than previous versions.  This almost looks like it could be a Plague version if the colors were darker.

Anyway, I’m excited for this one.  Check out the image below and keep watching GIJoeClub.com for the latest info.  Also, if you like what you see, sign up for the FSS, it’s only open until midnight of July 15th.

GeneralsJoes Reviews FSS 3 Mystery 13th Figure

I’m not sure if everyone has received their last packages from the Collectors Club containing the mysterious 13th figure, but just in case someone out there is trying to retain some element of surprise, I’ll keep this vague.

But trust me, the 13th figure is pretty great.  Check out my G.I. Joe Collectors Club Review Page, or click the link below.

GeneralsJoes Reviews FSS 3 Big Ben

It felt like 1991 was a big year for G.I. Joe…at least it jumps out at me, looking back, that it was almost a turning point of sorts from the straight-laced military aesthetic of 1990 to a more colorful and science fiction one.  I know, there were plenty of science fiction and fantasy elements in previous years, but with the advent of the Eco-Warriors, the revisiting of some classic past characters in somewhat more complicated looks.  I loved 1991 as a kid, and it still holds a place in my heart as an adult.

The funny thing is, Big Ben was kind of lost in the shuffle for me back then.  He didn’t stand out among the Low Lights, Mercers, Dusty’s, Snake Eyes, and other refreshing new designs of that year.  That year I was all about revisiting the classics.

So one of the things that the Club has excelled at over the years is taking some of those forgotten characters and injecting new life into them.  Big Ben achieves that in spades.
