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 –

G.I. Joe Club Expires December 2016

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!
