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.

Allspark Pictures Takes Creative Lead

Thanks to Silver Optimus of HISS Tank we’ve learned that Hasbro will retain more creative control of their movies, through their brand new Allspark Pictures division!

Speaking to Toy World Magazine (January 2016 Issue) Hasbro stated that G. I. Joe 3 is in production. Though, Micronauts were previously announced as attached to G. I. Joe, a separate movie seems to be in work and may connect later in a Marvel Cinematic Universe fashion.

Happily, Hasbro seems to be enthusiastic about the new projects which may result in a new revival for the Joe brand (hopefully).

Stephen Davis, executive VP and Chief Content Officer of Hasbro stated that their newly established Allspark Pictures will have more control over the content of the movies.

Please find scans of the magazine courtesy of our sister site, after the jump. And please join with the TFW Network as we bring you the best Toy Fair coverage around.

You can check out the scans of the article about Hasbro and Allspark Pictures at HISS Tank!

Duke

Duke by ska_lives

ska_lives stopped by to share his 50th Anniversary Duke figure with us!

I wanted to do a nice upgrade of Duke to fit in with the 50th line, so I took a little inspiration from some customs I had seen by Marine-73 and Ozzie92 to name a few. From there it was just a matter of making things fit and painting him up! This figure was fun to make and came together nicely IMO. I hope you guys dig it! Let me know what you think!

Recipe
head – Ren. Duke
torso – Ret. 3pk Firefly
arms – Ret. Mouse
hands – 50th Beachhead
legs – 50th lady jaye

accessories
bp – 50th hit and run
rifle – poc shock trooper
gun belt – poc hawk
pistol – mu ultimat cap
bandolier – joe con zombie steel brigade

Be sure to let ska_lives know what you think of this awesome figure in his custom 50th Anniversary Duke discussion!
