The Collector Club Updates Us On The G.I.Joe Figure Subscription Service (Update)
GI Joe: Jay Cochran - 2011.08.16
UPDATE: Though not set in stone, it looks as if these figures will cost in the neighborhood of $25 each.


The folks from the Collector Club have posted on Facebook the following information about their new G.I.Joe Subscription service as well as the club itself. It appears you will have to join the club in order to partake in the subscription service. We have highlighted the specific bullet points about the service below:

•THIS is the Facebook page for the OFFICIAL G.I. Joe Collectors' Club which is operated under license from Hasbro, Inc. We also operate GIJoeCon which is the ONLY official G.I. Joe Convention.

•The official website for the Club is www.gijoeclub.com.You are not a member by liking this Facebook page.

•Officer Level Members (paid) get a monthly magazine and a free figure each year they are an active member. Members also receive special pricing in the online store and free use of the MCAX auction site. There is also a Members Only message board.

•The Club will soon be offering an add-on service to Officer Level Members which will be a Figure Subscription Service. This will be an additional charge to your paid Club Officer Level Membership.

•The Figure Subscription will be 2 carded figures shipped every month for 6 months for a total of 12. Subscribers will receive a 13th figure FREE at the end if the subscription period.

•Figure Subscriptions will only be available to Officer Level (paid) members for a limited time. After the cutoff date, no more subscriptions will be sold for that period of figure mailings.

•The Figure Subscription and Club Membership are TWO different things and you MUST be an active Officer Level member in order to be eligible for the Figure Subscription.

•The 12 figures will be known when the Figure Subscription window opens, but the 13th figure will be a secret. (We hope.) Don't tell when you get yours! :-)


This information is not final, but hopefully it answers SOME questions.

Quarrel uses the Pilot Scarlett headed painted blonde. As for being a "crappy repaint", Quarrel has always been a repaint of Scarlett. That's the whole cache of the foreign figures is they're interesting and occasionally weird repaints of old American figures. If they kitbashe... read more

Yeah - it's not an excuse, it's simple math. There's no way the Club will be making these in the same quantities as MOTUC or even show exclusives. Based on the Tfclub, they sold out of their run of Ramjet and Cheetor in a day or less, and that was only club members buying. I'll be... read more

The Club already said that the entire lineup except the 13th "bonus" figure will be announced before subscriptions are taken, so those of you whining that the Club wasn't going to tell anyone what they were going to get were a wee bit off the mark. Those of you complaining about pri... read more

[quote name='RobbieDigital' timestamp='1313541830' post='16723372'] I think they're hesitant to release the names of all 12 figures because they know people won't get the subscription once they see the line-up of craptastic re-paints they probably have coming. ... read more

Hell I thought the M... read more
