And this time it’s Stormavik!
Yet another great looking member of the Oktober Guard, the Club has shown that they are pulling out the stops for these figures. Stormavik has a new head sculpt and some nicely stacked up body mold, using the legs from Shadow Tracker and the arms from City Strike Destro. Wow. He’s definitely tweaked for a more modern update, and it looks pretty friggen great. The Pursuit of Cobra Duke webgear suits the figure exceptionally well, too.
Check out GIJoeCon.com for the lowdown and I’ve got the awesome image mirrored below. This set is looking better and better every day!
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!
So last week we got all of the exciting reveals for the 2011 JoeCon Exclusive Convention set. This week, we have an image of the figures in their box! It’s kind of cool to see the figures all together like this, even though it’s a very small picture.
Check out the images at GIJoeCon.com or mirrored below.
GeneralsJoes sponsor JoeArmory.com has let us know about a great sale they are now running on the site. Check out the details below!

As we gear up for the 2011 Membership drive from the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club, some more details can be had about the upcoming 2011 exclusive figure, a 25th Anniversary Dial-Tone. Over on their Exclusive Figures page, the GIJCC has posted two silouettes, one for the Communications Officer, and one for the 12″ exclusive, the Man of the Sea.
From what we can see in the silouette of Dial-Tone (as well as what’s mentioned in the text), a few more details can be gathered:
- Dial Tone will have a totally newly tooled head
- The figure looks to be comprised of Buzzer’s Torso/Webgear, and Sgt. Airborne’s arms and legs. Legs could also be Gung Ho, tough to tell for sure
- He will come with his familiar machine gun and what looks to be a retooled backpack to match his vintage version
They also mention on this page that the Adventure Team Sea Adventurer should hit release in early 2011.
If you even think you might be interested in this Dial Tone figure, I strongly recommend you join up and ensure that you get it. Big Lob sold out and I have absolutely ZERO doubts in my mind that Dial Tone will, too. And probably pretty damn quickly. Don’t miss this boat.
