The GI Joe Club gave us two exciting pieces of news today. First registration for the upcoming, and sadly final, GI Joe Club Convention is now live and second we got our first peak at the GI Joe club set. Get online now to register for the event. The first figure preview from the convention set is Slaughter’s Marauders Infantry Trooper Footloose. We last saw Footloose as the 2012 GI Joe Collectors Club Free Membership Figure and here we get him again as part of Slaughter’s Marauders. If you missed out on the figure 6 years ago here is your chance to get him again… of course in a slightly different deco. This is a very nice first reveal and I can’t wait to see the next.
Get registered today for the 2018 GI Joe Convention
INFANTRY TROOPER: FOOTLOOSE
– 25th Anniversary Style/Fully Poseable Action Figure.
– Modern Era Release of Character based on 1989 SM design.

(Note: Photo depicts action figure mock-up and final product may slightly differ.)
Collect all these great 3 3/4″ action figures in the 15-figure Python Peril: Marauders to the Rescue! box set.
I promise I will refrain from the Kevin Bacon jokes that I’ve been seeing a lot of since this figure was first announced… 🙂
I’ve never been a huge Footloose fan, in all honesty, though reading his filecard made me wonder why not. As we should all expect, Larry Hama was able to infuse so much damn character into someone in such a tiny written space, and Footloose is no exception. He really is a fascinating guy. I have read some complaints that this version of the character makes him a bit harder and “edgier” than folks would prefer, but I disagree. I think this figure is pretty great.
Nice and military, great articulation, an awesome head sculpt… and the price is right! Check out the full review below.
The following information comes via email from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club!
We have now taken the next step in getting the store fully online. Since you are getting this email, that means your account is in good standing and you don’t need to do anything with your membership until you get further instructions from the new store.
What we do need is for you to spread the word that anyone whose membership has lapsed and wants to get back in the club starting with the May issue, needs to join by this Friday April 20th. They can do this from any of the regular links at GIJoeClub.com or by clicking here. Anyone starting now will receive the free figures offered for 2013.
Please tell them to go to the store, put the membership in their basket and check out. If they had a log-in it is still valid and they can use the retrieval function to get their password. They will be eligible to order the extra Footloose or Man of Evil figures from this year’s runs when they are put online.
If you want multiple memberships, remember that you can only have one membership per email (same for any Transformers Club memberships). Every email address can only have one membership attached to it whether it is a Joe or TF membership.
I know you are all wanting to order the exclusive figures as well, but there are still a couple of known bugs we have to get worked out in order for us to add products to the new store. Currently, the store can only be used to join the Club. We are shooting for the first week in May to have these items online.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Thanks for your support!
Wow, this is a very pleasant surprise. The G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club notified us all last week that the Footloose figures were now shipping, and HissTank user Blot has received his! How did someone in England receive their figure before everyone in the US? I have no idea, but the best news is that Blot took some nice pictures of Footloose, and I’ll be damned. He’s got the ball joint wrists!
I don’t believe we’ve seen those in any previous image. An awesome addition by the Club and the figure is looking even cooler now. Check out a couple of mirrored images below, take a look at HissTank.com for the rest, but most importantly keep your eye on those mailboxes! Footloose incoming!

Well isn’t this a fine Friday morning surprise?
An email received from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club reveals that they have started shipping their membership exclusive figures for 2012! For us 3 3/4″ Real American Hero fans, that means Footloose should be in hand within the next few weeks! Woo hoo!
The letter also provides some instructions for renewing memberships within the new Club online store system. Check out the full email below!
Here are the latest updates from the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club:
SURPRISE! This week we started mailing the FREE membership figures for 2012! We were able to get these manufactured much earlier this year, so off they go to you! It will take several weeks for them to reach all of the membership, so please be patient. If you don’t receive your figure by the end of May, please let us know.
In your April issue of the Club Magazine, you will find a letter that offers: credit card fraud counseling; instructions on how to place a credit alert on your accounts; and a free one-year subscription to a Credit Monitoring and Identity Theft Recovery Service that we have purchased on your behalf.
If you have received any evidence of fraud on your credit cards, please call and make a report with the 800 number listed in the letter for the recovery services.
If you desire to take advantage of the Credit Monitoring and Identity Theft Recovery Service, your letter contains an individually assigned certificate number that will allow you to activate the service. Do not share this certificate number with anyone as it is a one-time use certificate. In addition, you will need to activate your service by June 15, 2012. This service will last for 12 months once you activate it. Again, we apologize for any issues this problem has caused our membership.
Please note that your Club Magazine will be approximately 2 weeks later than normal as we wanted to give you time to check your mailing addresses in the new Club Store before we used it for the first mailing. You should receive your issue by May 4th. Please contact us after that date if you have not received your magazine.
Next week we will have the memberships back in the store. If you need to renew, all you have to do is put a credit card on file before your billing date (see My Account when you log in). The system will bill your renewal on that date. If you expire, you will need to go to the store, select the membership of your choice and check out. Then you will start again with the next mailing.
Finally, we are still working on getting all of our software and process back to normal. We hope to have registration available for G.I. Joe Con soon. We will send out an email when this is online.
Thanks for your support!
