Our GIJCC Figure Subscription Service 4.0 is back online and available to order through July 15th at midnight(Central time). If you are an active member of the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club… you can subscribe now through this extended deadline!

The cost of the 12 figure subscription service is $324 (+ shipping for 6 shipments). You can pay all at once or in three installments of $108 (billed to your credit card). When you subscribe and choose pay by Installment, you will be billed for the first two month’s shipments. Then sometime during the second month of shipping (estimated to be November/December), you will be billed for the 3rd and 4th months’ shipments and sometime during the 4th month of shipping (estimated to be January/February) you will be billed for the final 2 months’ shipments. Upon subscription completion, you will receive a bonus carded 13th mystery figure with the last shipment.

Please note that for the installment payment option, there is a $5 service charge per billing while the pay in full option has one $5 service charge. Please also note that for installment buyers, there is an additional charge each time a billing is attempted if your card is not approved. If your card has been declined and we have to re-bill, we will only be able to retry your billing three (3) times before your subscription is cancelled. Each retry has an additional fee added to your total charge (please see the Terms and Conditions.)

This Figure Subscription Service is a “build to order process” so you can order as many as you like, until the order period closes. At that time, we will not process anymore subscriptions and we may/may not have additional figures in the club store at a higher per figure price.

Please note that these are Photoshop mock-ups and the final product may vary. Also note that the colors are approximate as everyone’s computer screen has a different look/calibration. Final figures colors/names/accessories may vary from the above descriptions and pictures.

3.75″ Joe Book!

Daniel Klingensmith wrote a book, giving us a behind the scenes look at how the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero toy line came into being, called 3.75″ Joe: The Special Forces Team That Forged an American Hero!

G.I. Joe® is one of the most recognizable and well known action figure lines in history, yet there is no full story showing the creation process of the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero™ brand that ran from 1982-1994.
Well that’s about to change with the release of “3.75 Inch Joe”.

Although there have been many books written about G.I. Joe®, what makes “3.75 Inch Joe” unique is the fact that the information shared within the book comes from exclusive interviews with former employees who worked on the G.I. Joe® Brand. Some of the things to expect include:

• The inspiration and influences behind the different figures and vehicles
• Alternate names for figures and vehicles
• Insider stories regarding the changes that occurred during the design process
• Conceptual designs and photographs that will show the progression and different stages of creating a figure or vehicle
• And much more…

A portion of the profits will be donated to Hasbro Children’s Hospital and Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

Check out Daniel Klingensmith’s website for more details!  If you have any interest in this book, please preorder it now!  If they don’t sell at least 350 copies by July 17, the book won’t be printed!

* Pre-Order Disclaimer: Prior to placing the print order, Steel City Publishing, LLC  needs to sell a minimum of 350 copies of the book.  If the order is not fulfilled by July 17, 2015, 12:00pm PST, Steel City Publishing, LLC will complete a full refund on your purchase.  Due to any unforeseen circumstances prior to the cutoff date of July 17, 2015 for which Steel City Publishing, LLC needs to cease selling the book, a full refund will be provided.

G.I.Joe vs Transformers New Crossover Figures By Fun Publications Inc

Today at BotCon 2015, The Transformers Collectors Club (run by Fun Publications, Inc, who also run the G.I.Joe Collectors Club) announced new G.I.Joe vs Transformers figures that will be available to Club members. The new crossover figures are Rodimus and Arcee who were featured in the Transformers episode “Only Human”.

Both figures will be based off of G.I.Joe components (you can see that Arcee uses Bombstrike’s head) and will be available next year. Also shown alongside these new offerings were figures we were aware that were on their way – The Club exclusive G.I.Joe vs Transformers Old Snake with Stealth B.A.T. (Battle Android Trooper) x2 and Marissa Faireborn (Flint & Lady Jayes daughter) with Afterbreaker (Afterburner, a Technobot).

We’ve mirrored a few images here for your review, but make sure to check out the amazing coverage of #BotCon2015 across the ‘net (places like TFW2005.com) for more images and information.

Towards the end of the Rise of Cobra line, certain figures never saw the light of day, but were later re-purposed as part of the Pursuit of Cobra line. These two figures fall in to that category. Included in these actions are Jungle Duke and Jungle Cobra Commander. You might ask “What’s so special about these?”

Well, if you look closely, the Jungle Duke figure sports a Channing Tatum headsculpt, whereas the Jungle Cobra Commander includes a “Nanobot” and features a ROC Commander’s head on a body that was later used for POC Cobra Commander. You can check out both links below and even get your bid in if you’d like!
