G.I.Joe Collectors Club 2018 Membership Incentive Figures Announcement

The G.I.Joe Collectors Club has shared word of their 2018 Membership Incentive figures. The update includes details on Rock N’ Roll, alongside their 12″ offering, the Black & White TV Edition figure! Here’s the scoop – 

12-INCH G.I. JOE BLACK & WHITE TV EDITION:

Back in 1964 when 12″ G.I. JOE debuted, most children first saw the iconic action figure in shades of gray on their home black and white TV set. Now for the first time, the G.I. JOE Collectors’ Club captures that early experience of G.I. JOE before we saw the toys on retail shelves! Beginning with the 2018 Membership figure (box and accessories sold separately), you can collect all four of the Black and White TV Edition 12″ G.I. JOE action figures! These figures will be a VERY limited edition!

*************************************************

3 3/4-INCH GATLING GUNNER ROCK ‘N ROLL:

This 3 3/4″ modern era update of ROCK ‘N ROLL (V2)… inspired by his 1989 action figure with uniform colors based on his Marvel comic appearance and animation model design. Our club exclusive release features a NEW head sculpt, removable harness, submachine gun, ammo belt, backpack and re-tooled double-barrel gatling gun. It will be mailed in a polybag that includes file card, weapons and figure stand.

**************************************************

Make sure you’re an active member by March 16th for the final year of the official G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club. You will receive monthly issues of the Club Magazine, access to Club Store Exclusives including the FSS (Figure Subscription Service), Discounts for the International G.I. Joe Collectors’ Convention, and your choice of either a FREE 3 3/4″ or 12″ G.I. Joe action figure as listed above!

G.I.Joe Collectors Club December 2017 Magazine Featuring Rock n Roll

Thanks to our friend Tim ‘Southpaw’ Van Boening from the GI Joe A Joe Renegade Group for sharing an image of his copy of the December 2017 G.I.Joe Collectors Club Magazine. The cover features the upcoming membership incentive figure, Rock ‘n Roll!

Rock ‘n Roll’s design appears to be a mash up of both new and classic, incorporating the v2 colors on the “concept vault” build. I’m sure many will be hitting the secondary marketing for an extra Gatling gun if they don’t already own one (I know I did!)

Want to add Rock ‘n Roll to your collection? Head over to the G.I.Joe Collectors Club Membership page and sign up before the cut off!

We’ve included a side-by-side with the vintage version (vintage image courtesy of 3D Joes).

Higher quality images are surely right around the corner, but for now, what are your preliminary thoughts on Rock n Roll? Will you be renewing your membership, or starting a new one, in order to get your hands on R&R? Share your opinion with us on the Cobra Island Forums!
