G.I.Joe Collectors Club Figure Subscription 6 Hardtop Review

Our friends from Just Another G.I.Joe Show stopped by to share their YouTube review of the G.I.Joe Collectors Club FSS 6 Hardtop figure. The beloved G.I.Joe Defiant Space Shuttle Complex, hyped as one of the greatest toys of all time (and rightfully so), included (2) Figures – Hardtop being one of them. As the Defiant Crawler driver, many fans have been clamoring for this figure as they add the Defiant to their collections. Hopefully we’ll see Payload somewhere in FSS 8. 

It’s great to see this character get the modern era treatment. From the look of things, he turned out to be a great looking update. Check out the review below –

Great news for fans of the G.I.Joe Collectors Club Figure Subscription Service, or FSS for short – Today, the Club has confirmed that FSS 8 will indeed see the light of day! 

To bring you up to speed, it was still in the air on whether or not collectors would have an FSS 8 to add to their collections, so this is welcome news to many. In related news, the Club also confirmed that the first shipment against FSS 6 will occur this Friday, November 10th. For those paying in installments, payment due dates have been shared. Here’s the scoop from the Club – 

Hello Subscribers,

The day you have all been waiting for is this week! The first shipment will go out by this Friday, November 10. The December shipment is going out early before the end of November to help avoid the package rush so that you get if faster. For those of you on the installment plan, the billing dates are:

  • Installment 2: December 18. 
  • Installment 3: February 16.

Please keep your credit card and address current during the next few months. You can make changes here.

The final shipment will arrive in April. Our current plan is to have the FSS 7 first shipment in May so that we will be able to get FSS 8 shipping before the end of our contract.

Thanks for your support and Happy Holidays!

Brian

Rank & File: A Guide to 4 Inch G.I. Joe Action Figures Volume 1.1 Ships Monday!

Great news for those that if you that got in on the Rank & File Volume 1 Reprint Kickstarter Campaign. Word has come in via a project update that Vol 1.1 will begin to ship this coming Monday, November 6th! In order for James to ship your book, you must first complete the Kickstarter survey that’s been sent out, so make sure to check your inbox for details! 

After a brief hiatus in 2006 that allowed the G.I. Joe brand to flourish in other areas, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero was reintroduced in a new stylistic direction that is still predominately used today! Not only did this reintroduction allow fans to revisit some of their most cherished icons within the G.I. Joe mythos, they were introduced to new characters that are now known and loved.

This Rank & File Volume 1.1 is an update to the introductory guide in a series that fully displays every G.I. Joe action figure produced between the 25th Anniversary and today, complete with every accessory and variation produced. Volume 1.1 begins with an introduction to G.I. Joe, discussing its 1964 origins all the way up to the Real American Hero line in its first two generations, and then fully explores the 25th Anniversary and Resolute 4″ action figures series. To top it off, every vehicle and play set released in the 4″ era has been documented and every easily removable piece has been individually photographed—ensuring collector completion.

Don’t forget, you can pick up other volumes in the Rank & File series directly from Mr. James Kavanaugh Jr. via the R.A.H.C. Guide website! Make sure to share your thoughts on the reprint with us right here on the Cobra Island Forums

Eagle Force Returns Shattered Peace Page 16 Now Available

The latest page from the Eagle Force Returns Web Comic, Shattered Peace, is now available for your reading pleasure! 

Last week brought us to Mitte Borough, Berlin, Germany, where we saw a Motor cycle cruising through the streets, but it’s stopped by armed gunmen and a shadowy, white suited character. Who were they and what was the fate of our masked rider? 

Page 16 begins to shed light on the topic. Our “White Suited Character” from last issue confronts a masked man who promises him a spot in the New World Order, regardless of how they get there. Could this be Thule? Perhaps another operative from R.I.O.T.? Only time will tell! 

Eagle Force Returns: “Shattered Peace” Page 16 was written by Justin Bell and illustrated by Ryan Lord. There’s a new page every Wednesday, so join on the Cobra Island Forums to discuss this and all things Eagle Force Returns!
