37 pages of fun on tfw...haven't checked out HISS though....

Transformers collectors' club (official)
due to the high bandwidth demand for the transformers' club and botcon products, we have been forced to take the store server for the transformers' and g.i. Joe collectors' clubs offline. The system our new store software was installed on will not support the bandwidth demands that are being placed on it. The store software company will be moving us to a different server with more capacity.

So, the transformers and g.i. Joe collectors' club stores will be offline for several days. We will let you know when we are operational again.

Thanks for your patience and support.

If you received a confirmation email or see a charge on your credit card, you have a good order in the system. This move will not affect any order that went through.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your enthusiasm about these products.

Did they try to sell the extra membership figures? The demand for Footloose alone could have crashed Amazon.

I didn't know they were even putting the GI Joe store back online, I thought it was just the Transformers site.  I didn't even look at it, I need to get in and get my Man of Evil!

FSS is live!

A VERY SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE G.I. JOE COLLECTORS’ CLUB. Re: FSS

The launch of the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club Figure Subscription Service is imminent; we will notify you the link when we make the service active. While we are loading the final details, here are some things to remember:

1. You must be a member of the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club to take advantage of the Figure Subscription Service.

2. There is NO reason to rush the site or be in a hurry as this is a build to order system. We will build as many as you order, so we cannot run out. YOU CAN ORDER AS MANY AS YOU WANT, there is no limit.
3. What you do need to be concerned about is the closing date of the subscription service, which ENDS on September 4th at midnight.

4. You can either pay In Full or by Installment. There will be 3 installments. When you subscribe and choose pay by Installment, you will be billed for the first two months’ shipments. Then sometime during the second month, you will be billed for the 3rd and 4th months’ shipments and sometime during the 4th month you will be billed for the final 2 months’ shipments.

5. Your free surprise 13th figure will come with your final shipment during the 6th month.

6. The figures will be shipped in random order. All members receive the same figures each month. The figure pairings will not be preannounced. So if you don’t mind, when you get your shipment each month, PLEASE do not go online and tell what you received. We want each shipment to be a surprise for as many members as possible.

7. The cost is $294 if Paid In Full (plus shipping) or three Installments of $98 (plus shipping). Please note that there is a $3 online processing fee for each billing. We take Visa, Discover or MasterCard. Unfortunately we cannot accept Money Orders or Checks for this offer.

8. If you pick a shipping service that does not include insurance or if you don’t pick the insurance, we do not have any responsibility for replacement of lost or damaged or misdirected orders.

9. If you move or need to change your credit card during the program, you can log into your account and change it there. This will change all of your future FSS billings and shipments. We will also be sending you reminders to check your address and cc before each billing/shipment goes out. We are not responsible for shipments that are lost due to incorrect shipping information on file.

10. We are waiting on the final schedule from China so we don’t know exactly when the first figures will ship. We hope it will be by Christmas. We will announce this as soon as we get the final schedule.

11. Some of the figures (single figures) MAY be available in the Club Store after the subscriber’s figures ship. These will be at a price of $32 per figure. There is no guarantee of availability of any of the figures in the club store. If you want to ensure getting these limited edition figures, you need to subscribe to the service.


/ Considering I paid $40 for Jinx and Zarana, $30ish for these doesn't seem so bad. After missing Voltar and Darklon, I think I'll grab this sub.

I decided that I am going to do this even though I only want Big Boa, Cover Girl, Topside, and Sure Fire.   I would try to trade the rest for Joes I don't have.  But for $294  :P and Membership fee (which I don't have) It going to suck but it beats paying $100 for Big Boa.

Well, if you got a membership now, you'll get Iceberg next spring as well. Looks like the bagged Footloose is finally sold out, though.

And, right on cue, another personal info debacle:

Buyers Beware!


Apparently the Club is getting addresses/confirmations confused from the Joe and TF subs. What a bushleague operation.

I was considering buying Voltar and Darklon for more than  $100 each on ebay, and it appears that might be the smartest thing to do to acquire Big Boa. There's just no way I can willingly give them any card info, outside of using one of those reloadable deals.

Just tried to subscribe, and both my cards were declined. Obviously a problem on their end, but considering all the roadblocks thrown up in my way, it's fate telling me not to sub, so screw it.

I really wanted a bunch of these figures, but from these bushleaguers? Well, they can just take a long walk off a short pier, and take Iceberg with them. I'm done with them.

Well, I subscribed last night.  I was kind of back and forth on it the last couple of weeks but ended up deciding to do it because there were a few figures in there that I wanted.  We'll see how it goes.
