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.
