The Heartwrencher and vehicle pre-orders are up and in less than 24 hours we have sold 1/3 of the run.

Convention info coming soon.

Don't forget to keep your membership active. You can renew up until March 16, after that date we will stop taking memberships.

Memberships aren't pro-rated, correct? So, any renewals at this point will be for less than 12 months but required in order to purchase product (presumably including FSS 8) through the remainder of the year?

So, if my membership expires in May, I need to renew prior to March 16 in order to be eligible for any offerings occurring after the May expiration date?

“Convention Info Coming Soon,” is music to my ears and heart. We will finally know at least the Theme of the final box set, if not the characters as well. This is fantastic news! Are we getting a hint before the reveal happens?

How close is this to selling out after a week? Is it close enough that the Club could consider, with Hasbro's blessing the rest of the Ground Assault (RAM Cycle) and the Air Assault (Fang and Skyhawk) Sets?

I wonder if the production numbers were slashed from previous sets (does not bode well for the Con items). Although the Dreadnoks seems to experience waves of popularity.

Over half of the Heartwrencher and vehicle are now sold through the pre-orders, that's just in 5 days....

I'm more interested to know if i need to renew my membership for the last 6 months of the year...

Wow. Really impressive. Initially I had my doubts about this set, but I can't wait to have it in hand.

We are now into single day digits, T-minus 9 at most before the reveal of the Convention Set Theme! Soon we will know if the logo contained a clue or not. But seriously, shouldn’t we have been given a clue from The Club by now in the form of a post?!?!?

I am excited. Hoping the club goes out with a bang!!!

Yes, you would need to renew through the end of the year if you want access to the last FSS and all of the club mags, etc.

Note that we have started going through the archives one last time and thinning it down to just what Brian is going to keep. So for the next month or so, watch for these items as there are usually less then 3 of them. Most of the time 1 or 2.

Hello Members!

We are going back through the club archives and thinning everything down to just what I am keeping in my collection.

This means we have started putting in the club store items you may not have seen for a long time. Some will be retail, some will be exclusives. This will go on for several months until we comb through the entire warehouse. Please note that for some of these, there is only one. Other items may have a higher quantity. Most of them are less than three.

These items will also come with a letter that it is from the Collectors' Club Archives and it will be embossed with the Hassenfeld Bros Inc. Corporate seal from 1926 (which is a cool mento itself).

Make sure you check out the store every few days to see what we have added. Currently there are over 50 items that have been uploaded (http://gijoeclub.com/shop).

2/3 of the Heartwrenchers are sold out and in a little over hour we are 1/3 sold through on the 2018 convention loose sets and the GT American Hero is 95% sold out!

Also, on the archive items of the first 50 items we put up, this morning there were only stock left on 15 of them.

GIJoeCon updates... Thursday Class so out. Golden Ticket American Hero is sold out. About an hour and half in, there are still a few Golden Ticket Generals.

Almost all non-attending 3 3/4" sets are gone. We are very fortunate that this year we have received 3 3/4" samples this early. We don't have any 12" items to show yet but, it is very similar to the vintage "Sears" Green Beret Machine Gun Outpost.
