Hello Members,

We are going to start doing a better job of communicating to you more frequently. The staff will be posting minor updates under this staff account as things change. Often we may be repeating ourselves as there may not be anything new to report. Also, keep in mind that this is going to be more fluid so things we tell you will change as the environment changes so don't think that anything is written in stone.... Most of these updates will be really short. We will try to answer questions but please do not ask any customer support questions or shipping questions as we will not answer them on the forum. If you need customer service, please use the email links or call the office.

For this week...

We are working on the FSS 5.0 decos so we can start the order period. We are working on establishing the link for reservations for GIJoeCon 2017. The hotel rate is higher as the economy is doing much better. The rate is $169 per night and there is a $20 per room resort fee in addition to the rate. When you make your reservation, all of that is explained. They will take one nights deposit which is refundable up to 5 days before the convention.

The last FSS 4.0 shipment will depart here by EOM.

Watch for future updates in the GIJCC Updates thread... Stay cool!

This is FANTASTIC news, while I think you guys do a good job overall, I've always thought the club should be more active on the forums and communicate more with the membership. I realize this past year was a special circumstance, but really hope you guys do try to engage with the membership more frequently.

Hello again... here are the answers to your recent questions:

As you may know, we have a higher than normal shipping schedule after a convention and the July magazine was mailed mid-month.

The 2016 Crossover set will be released later this year. Price TBD.

The convention hotel has a per night, per room fee. Details from their web site:

The resort service package includes: unlimited in-room high speed Internet access, free local, toll free and credit card access calls, unlimited domestic long distance calls per day, 2 bottles of water daily, and unlimited access to the resort's health club facilities. This excludes all resort and sales taxes. The current tax percentage is 12.5%. The package will be charged at the time the deposit is applied.

We are still working on plans and will announce the 2017 membership figures as soon as they are approved.

I take it then, you have a tentative idea? I'm not trying to be rude,but the way I've interpreted that is you have ideas, and you've submitted them for approval,and are now waiting?


Could you tell us some of the ideas that didn't make it in the past?

I suggest Major Altitude as he is the only character missing from this year's SP/Air Commandos/Battle Copter Pilot Sets. (I am not including Spirit and Ace in this list).

I really appreciate that the club is listening to everyone and giving us updates on where things are! Really looking forward to seeing what this year and the coming years bring! As far as the membership figure I'm sure it's already been decided but I would love Dojo or Crystal Ball to help complete the Ninja Force and 1987 lines!

I've been waiting for my mag only to realize my membership expired in May, back when they weren't taking renewals. So, don't do that.

Hey Super Moderator!
Any possible way that you can tell us what would be the theme for next year's 3 3/4 set? Thanks

I'm positive there's no way they can tell you that. It looks like Cobra-La is the only thing off the table.
