G.I.Joe Collectors Club Figure Subscription 6 Figure Preview

Last week, the G.I.Joe Collectors Club began to share images of offerings from the 6th Figure Subscription Service. The images gave us our first “in hand” look at – 

  • Mark “Sub-Zero” Habershaw
  • Dojo
  • Captain Skip

  • Jonas “Ghostrider” Jeffries
  • Rampart
  • Cobra W.O.R.M.S. Officer

Alongside the sample images, the GIJCC shared the following intel – 

Hello Members:  
I hope you are having a great end of summer! We expect to receive the final carded samples any day now and we are still waiting on the ship date confirmation. We are still anticipating that the shipment will arrive here around the first of November. We are pushing the factory to get them out the door. Since this is a build-to-order system, it takes about five months for the products to arrive from China once we place the final order quantity. 
 
For those of you on the installment plan, currently we anticipate that the second installment payment will be a couple of weeks before Christmas and the final payment will be around the middle of February. We won’t know (or set) the exact dates until we know the shipment is here. 
 

Thanks for your participation and support of these wonderful products.

Custom Storm Shadow by ska_lives

The hits keep coming from ska_lives!  His latest figure is a fresh look at the G.I. Joe 50th Anniversary Storm Shadow!

I finally got around to finishing this guy. I have had this figure sorted and ready for months, but I was just too lazy to finish some of the smaller bits of finishing to call him complete. Finally, however, I have.
I decided to actually tie my own Alpine harness using book binding thread instead of painting the plastic one that comes with the figure. Afterwards I painted the wooden shin guards as I have in the past to make them look more like wood. The rest was just painting some details to match, and stringing the bow.
I made this head and hood combo way back during the summer, and had been painting up a scratch built body for it, however, even using krylon fusion on the body for a nice even white, it wasnt adhering, so I put him on the back burner until the 50th model dropped. Once that happened, I just moved my work over to its core build.
Since this is going into my personal collection, I doubt ill go back and touch up some of the grey paint on the hood, but if I were to put it on the market I do need to make it a bit more even in tone.

Anywho, I hope you dig the changes.

Head: Ret. Ult Storm Shadow
Body: 50th Storm Shadow
