I passed on the subscription... from thinking I'd sign up everybody in the family so I could army build to none....

They look cool and I want it to succeed but just not spending the $$ on figures these days.

Got this email the other day:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

This is going out to everyone who subscribed to the GI Joe Collectors' Club Figure Subscription Service.

If any of you have moved since you placed your subscription order it's time for you to update your new address!

Please click here to log in and check your account!

We are anticipating that the first two figure shipment will ship before Christmas so that means you have until December 2nd to update your address. After that date, we do not guarantee that your shipment will go the correct address.

In order to get all of the orders out the door in one week, we need to start the printing and prep for all of the orders we received starting on December 3rd.

Provided that our shipment from China is not delayed, we are working on getting all orders out the door before Christmas. We will hopefully start sending them out the week before Christmas.

For those of you who have purchased on the installment plan, we anticipate that the second billing will take place in mid-January so we will give you updates as soon as we know the final schedule.

Thanks for all of your support and we hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season!

Brian

PS. If you have any questions, you can use the link at the bottom of the log in page to contact customer service.



So I have to ask: reveal the figures we get in this thread, or start a spinoff spoiler thread?

Don't know if it matters.  I'm sure that the at least one or two of the Joe sites will be posting the info as soon as they have it, trying to be the first to break the news.  So, if you follow them on Twitter or read their news pages, you'll probably see it before it hits here.

I don't really think it's that big of a deal.  I say post it here.

Up to you II, do you guys consider these a spoiler thing?  Otherwise I'd suggest leaving it in here, but that's up to you guys.

Since we know all the figures but the 13th, it's just the order that's going to be a surprise so my thought is it's not that big a deal.  But I would like to be surprised by the final figure.

I vote keep it here, but have no problem not spoiling it for others by wating 2 or 3 days after mine arrive to talk about them, unless they're mentioned somewhere else.

OK, I'll just leave it here then. Sounds like we won't get the first shipment until after Christmas anyway, so it is what it is.

Round 2.0!

Hello Everyone!

Today is the start of the order period for the next round of the G.I. Joe Collectors' Club Figure Subscription Service -FSS 2.0!

Over the next week, we will be showcasing all of the figure mock-ups for FSS 2.0, please keep in mind that these are photoshop comp images and the final versions will vary. There still could be some changes in accessories and figure bodies as well.
The FSS 2.0 subscription set will consist of twelve different carded 3 3/4" figures.  You will receive six shipments starting in approximately September/October of two figures each month.  Figures will be shipped in a surprise sequence (figure pairs will be the same for everyone each month).  It will be a surprise each month as to which figure pair you receive!   Your last shipment (6th shipment) will include your mystery carded 13th figure!

The limited edition GIJCC Figure Subscription Service contains a variety of fan requested characters from all eras of the 3 3/4-inch G.I. Joe A Real American Hero collection. The assortment includes 25th Anniversary style figures of characters from the classic 80's, 90's, new-sculpt, foreign editions, and unreleased 25th Anniversary characters as well.
 
Each single carded action figure features the highly articulated modern era sculpts with weapons and accessories to accomplish any mission.
Here are the 12 figures in the subscription service in random sequence, please note that colors, accessories and body styles are subject to change.  We will be filling in all pictures before the subscription period ends:

The cost of the 12 figure subscription service is $306 (+ shipping for 6 shipments).  You can pay all at once or in three installments of $102 (billed to your credit card). When you subscribe and choose pay by Installment, you will be billed for the first two month's shipments.  Then sometime during the second month of shipping (October/November), you will be billed for the 3rd and 4th months' shipments and sometime during the 4th month of shipping (December/January) you will be billed for the final 2 months' shipments.

Please note that for the installment payment option there is a $4 service charge per billing while the pay in full option has one $4 service charge.  Please also note that for installment buyers, there is an additional charge each time a billing is attempted if your card is not approved.  If your card has been declined and we have to rebill, we will only be able to retry your billing three (3) times before your subscription is cancelled. 

Each retry has an additional fee added to your total charge (please see the Terms and Conditions.) For example when the second and third installments are billed, if your card fails, the first time we retry will carry a $4 service fee, the second time will carry an $8 service fee and the third time will carry a $12 service fee.  If it fails at that point, we will cancel the subscription.

We have found that the majority of the problems is because the billing address entered doesn't match your credit card statement.  Please check your statement and enter your billing address exactly the same as your statement, even if you don't agree that this is your correct address.

This Figure Subscription Service is a "build to order process" so you can order as many as you like, until the order period closes. At that time, we will not process anymore subscriptions and we may/may not have additional figures in the club store at a higher per figure price. 

The order period is from May 1 through May 22nd.  You can check out the pictures and order link at GIJoeClub.com.  If you have any questions, please let us know and we will answer them in the FAQs at GIJoeClub.com.

Enjoy!

Brian

No interest, eh? I didn't sub this time, preferring instead to preorder the figures I wanted from BBTS. I like the idea, but it's just too expensive for what are just really expensive Frankenjoes.
