GeneralsJoes reviews Figure Subscription Service Quarrel and Nano B.A.T.

Come on, I don’t need to put a spoiler warning up there do I?  These figures were shipped a few weeks ago, and I’m figuring by this point everyone knows what the second installment of the FSS was.  Continuing on my week-long review frenzy, the latest two G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club Figure Subscription Service figures have been added to the review archive!

G.I. Joe Collectors Club pulls the curtain back on FSS Quarrel

Following up with the awesome carded mock up of Big Boa, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club has posted a great article about Quarrel, slated to be an installment in the Figure Subscription Service.

There are some terrific close up pictures as well as a nicely detailed write up over at

Check it out!

Great article, but it makes me want an updated Hunter even more.  Imagine a PoC Cobra Trooper with Officer web gear done up as the SAS trooper?  That would be pretty awesome…

G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club art extravaganza for the FSS!

Wow!  Hopefully Joe fans out there are following the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club in all their various iterations, because they unleashed a barrage of sneak previews for artwork from the upcoming FSS (Figure Subscription Service)!  These reveals include the full card art for Quarrel and Nano-Bat as well as sneak peeks of Iron Klaw, Jinx, and Topside!

Make sure your eyes are glued to the GIJCC on Twitter, Facebook, and on to keep up to date on all the latest FSS information!  Also check out the mirrored images below.

I will say I’ve seen a lot of people talking trash about the artwork as well…and while I’m not necessarily head over heels about the art either, I think the limitations more lie with the source material than with the work being done with it.  Let’s all face it, the art we got in the 25th Anniversary line was nothing to fawn over.  It took inspiration from the classics, but was not even in the same league with the likes of Dave Dorman.  The Club is working with what they have, and in some cases it works, and in some cases it doesn’t, but in my eyes, the biggest limitations are the source images.

Of course, this isn’t true of Jinx, which is based on the awesome City Strike Scarlett by Mike Thompson, but personally, from what I see, the Jinx looks pretty damn good.

Look, I’m not a MOC collector anyway, so it doesn’t impact me much one way or the other, but I do think we need to cut the Club a little slack on this one.  They’re working with existing art from the Hasbro libraries that isn’t the best to begin with, and what they’re doing is certainly right on par with what we’ve seen in the 25th Anniversary line already.  At least that’s my opinion.  We’ve been spoiled by the Pursuit of Cobra stuff and even the Rise of Cobra stuff, which was exponentially better from a package art perspective, but I think these figures are really being designed to blend with the existing 25th Anniversary stuff, and do a perfectly fine job at it.

G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club debuts card art for FSS Quarrel

As an early Thanksgiving present, the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club has posted an image of the card art for the upcoming Figure Subscription Service (FSS) Quarrel figure!  She will be single packed in a 25th Anniversary style package as all of the FSS figures are.

Check out the mirrored image below, and get all the details on

Also of interest, the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club has posted their first official FAQ for the subscription service, and you can find that right here.

G.I. Joe Collectors Club officially reveals Quarrel and says more info on the way

Hot on the heels of G.I. Joe: Retaliation news, I would say that inquiries about the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club subscription service are on top of every Joe fan’s minds these days.  With still no ideas on price, release schedule, specific figures, or other details, many fans are salivating at the idea of this service, without really knowing what to even expect.

By the looks of it, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club is starting to get things together, and hopefully we should be hearing some details soon.  Over on their Facebook Page, the GIJCC has officially revealed Quarrel.  Now, we’ve seen this figure  before for the most part, but this is apparently an actual sample, complete with accessories.

They promise the Nano-Bat will be shown next week, and are saying more subscription details should emerge in the next “week or two”.  Check out their Facebook Page to keep up to date, and peek at the mirrored image below.

I love how she comes with an apparent motorcycle helmet.  She will look really damn nice on the convention Silver Mirage repaint from 2010.  Good stuff.

The G.I. Joe Collectors Club promises subscription figure news on Twitter!

Well, after a whirlwind week of training and getting combat-assaulted by the kids when I walked through the door, I’d like to play catch up on some news reports…but honestly, I’m beat.  Instead, I’ll just point out an email I received from the Collectors Club today that announced the debut of their Official Twitter Page.

The reason I’m choosing this news to reveal is primarily because they have promised to offer information on the upcoming subscription figures, which seems to be something pretty much every single Joe fan is looking for info on.  Their first reveal is a better image of Quarrel, who was first shown at JoeCon a month or so ago…but more information is supposedly on the way!

You can follow them on Twitter, and check out the Quarrel image below.

I’m starting to feel pretty good about this whole subscription idea…all sorts of neat ideas are coming to me, and I’m really looking forward to hearing more about it.

In hand pics and mini-review for Scarlett “Quarrel” homage

Roadblock Recall from the Terror Drome has uploaded some nice pics and did a review for the so-far unreleased Scarlett done up in an homage to the Action Force Quarrel figure.  Check out the full review here, and I’ve mirrored some pictures below.

Detailed images of UK-themed Scarlett at Blood for the Baron

Regular GeneralsJoes contributor cmderinchief recently got his hands on an Action Force themed repaint of the 25th Anniversary Scarlett figure, and was nice enough to let Blood for the Baron break the story.  To this point it is unknown as to whether or not this figure will ever even see release, but it remains an interesting figure nonetheless.

Check out the thread here, and take a gander at the images mirrored below.

Unreleased Quarrel/Scarlett figure on

A repaint of the 25th Anniversary Scarlett figure, painted to resemble the European Exclusive Action Force “Quarrel” from back in the day, has surfaced on  Current speculation is that this was the base figure for the unreleased “Arctic Scarlett” that was slated to come with COBRA Commander in a wave of Comic Packs that never saw the light of day.  The translated description of the auction also comes out as “Hasbro GIJOE special female red hair color version of the snow” which also supports that theory.

Check the auction out here.


Thanks to HissCommander from The Terror Drome for the info!
