G.I. Joe Subscription Service Preview - Quarrel

Finally!  Some new information has been released about the upcoming 2011 G.I. Joe Club subscription service.  We already know that Quarrel will be the first of the 12 figures and today we find out more information about the club...with the exception of the one item most people want to know...the cost!

Speaking for myself I'm excited about the potential of this service.  I just hope the cost doesn't exclude many (including myself) from being able to sign up for a subscription.  The SDCC exclusive Zaranna was $15 so I'm hoping they use that pricing model.  Much more than that would make it harder to swallow...at least for me.

•Officer Level Members (paid) get a monthly magazine and a free figure each year they are an active member. Members also receive special pricing in the online store and free use of the MCAX auction site. There is also a Members Only message board.

•The Club will soon be offering an add-on service to Officer Level Members which will be a Figure Subscription Service. This will be an additional charge to your paid Club Officer Level Membership.

•The Figure Subscription will be 2 carded figures shipped every month for 6 months for a total of 12. Subscribers will receive a 13th figure FREE at the end if the subscription period.

•Figure Subscriptions will only be available to Officer Level (paid) members for a limited time. After the cutoff date, no more subscriptions will be sold for that period of figure mailings.

•The Figure Subscription and Club Membership are TWO different things and you MUST be an active Officer Level member in order to be eligible for the Figure Subscription.

•The 12 figures will be known when the Figure Subscription window opens, but the 13th figure will be a secret. (We hope.) Don't tell when you get yours! :-)

  1. Wow, 13 figures per year plus the freebie? That is a lot of product. Hopefully the TFClub won't try to increase their offerings too much, I think two figures a year is plenty.
