The guys at the Full Force have officially kicked off their third series with a HUGE episode featuring news, figure reviews and talk with the Boss Fight folks. This one is a good one, so check it out at the Podbean site, or embedded below.
I bet you didn’t think they would last this long!! Series 3 comes flying in with tons of news from Justin Bell, Sgt. Slammer gets highlighted in both the figure review and in Boss Fight Builds courtesy of Erik Arana and we have a new segment entitled, ‘General’s Joe and Tell’!! It’s full of beans this one so sit back, relax and then do the opposite of that as you listen to three men with serious issues!! Oh and there’s a new theme tune……FULL FORCE!!!
It’s always a great day when more Vitruvian HACKS figures are available for sale!
The folks over at Kokomo Toys have announced that their exclusive Amazon “Elite Warrior” figure is now up for sale and available for shipping in their eBay Store!
Anyone who pre-ordered the figure should be getting shipping notices shortly, and meanwhile it’s also been posted up in their eBay Store as well.
This is an exclusive deco and the first time the Amazon has been available for immediate sale!
Go get it!
Over on the west coast, Wondercon is happening now and Fresh Monkey Fiction is making an appearance, revealing two more exciting Eagle Force figures leading up their Kickstarter!
The Eagle Force trooper and RIOT operative “Fireball” have been shown, along with an actual test shot of Captain Eagle and a nice sampling of promotional material. Check out the Eagle Force Returns page for details, and I’ve mirrored a few images below.
To date we have seen five different reveals for upcoming figures, including Captain Eagle, Stryker, Jr., and the Eagle Force Trooper on the good side, with Fireball and RIOT Commando on the bad side. To play a little “catch up” here are all the official reveals to date (beyond concept art):
I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m getting pretty excited to see these take shape. Keep watching Eagle Force Returns on Facebook for the latest!
Yes, I reported on Wednesday that the G.I. Joe Collectors Club would be accepting new members until the end of the day on March 16th, as they have every year.
However, they announced that this year they were expanding the deadline, and you now have until midnight TONIGHT to get your memberships in for 2016! This will be the best way to get your hands on the 2016 incentive figures, Pythona or the 12″ Mike Power.
Apparently these two figures are in hot demand, as the Collectors Club announced today that they have reached a landmark number for memberships, their highest active member group ever. Pretty exciting, and testament to the great looking exclusive figures that they’re giving away this year.
If you haven’t joined yet, you’ve got a small window of time, don’t lose out! Hit up GIJoeClub.com and a hearty congrats to the Club on this great milestone.
So it’s March 16th, and for the past several years that’s meant the cut off for signing up for the annual membership to the G.I. Joe Collectors Club. This year is no different (though next year is looking drastically different).
One major difference, though, is that this year the Collectors Club is offering up Pythona as the incentive figure for signing up! This is HUGE. Pythona has been a long in demand figure since her first appearance in the 1987 G.I. Joe animated film and to celebrate the final sign up day, they’ve released some awesome new images of the upcoming figure over on their Facebook page.
I love that you can detach her ponytail to put the hood over her head, and I’m really pleasantly surprised at how effective the figure looks with paint deco representing the raised pattern of her uniform. The new head, hands, and upper torso definitely help as well.
Check out the images below, and if you want this figure, I strongly recommend joining the Collectors Club! After 2016 is over, I suspect this figure will be in MAJOR demand and will be very difficult to come by.
