It appears that the G.I. Joe Club, JoeCon, the Transformers Club, and BotCon will be no more!
The Allspark reports that Fun Publications, the company that currently hosts the G.I. Joe Club, JoeCon, the Transformers Club, and BotCon, announced that all memberships to their clubs expire on December 31, 2016, which indicates that they will no longer retain the license after that point.
There’s no word on whether or not there will be a G.I. Joe Club or JoeCon after their contract expires, but there’s speculation that BotCon will be replaced by “Transformers experiences”
This also means that next year’s G.I. Joe Figure Subscription Service is the last one to be produced by the G.I. Joe Club!
