FSS 7.0 Subscribers,

As we get ready to send out your first shipment, we need you to update your shipping information on our FSS 7.0 website in case you have moved.

The shipment is scheduled to arrive here next week, so we are hoping to get these out by the end of the week.

Please make your changes by Monday night June 4th.

The shipment came in a little later than we planned, so we will not be able to get two shipments out before the convention.

The billing dates will be July 11th and August 15th, for those of you on the installment plan.

The schedule shows a 5:00 Thursday Club Store opening for Golden Ticket but not from 6-10 for regular pre-registered attendees like in previous years. Will the store be open for non Golden Ticket people on Thursday night?

Not pleased that us "lowly" standard ticket holders will be left to duke it out for the scraps that are left over... probably resorting to buying them from GT holders.

you must not come to joecon much. I have been every year since 1997 and have always got the exclusives in the regular line, never been GT and never had to buy from a GT person b/c they got everything. They have vouchers and a system in place. GT can only go once on Thursday w/ a voucher. They cant go again til Saturday. same with regular ticket people you get a voucher and can go thru once on Thursday with ur voucher. cant go again til Saturday.

I'm well versed in the process MJjoe as this year will be my sixth. I'm so happy for you that you have been to 20 conventions. Congratulations are in order.

The voucher system has not always been in place.

My specific reference was from the 2014 NF Crazylegs Paradrop figure. GT's got their fill and we in line were left to buy from GT's on sales floor at 5x the price...... Everything is a limited run. There is the possibility that some of us regular guys in the back of the line will miss out. Especially this year, as I'm quite certain the club does not want "leftovers" this year.

You are correct it hasn't always been a voucher system. I wasn't GT 2014 and got NF crazylegs in line. But that doesn't happen every year either where the wrong amount was brought to joecon. I think everyone will be fine like they have the past few years.

congrats on this being your 6th!

Hello GIJoeCon Attendees,

We will be seeing you guys and gals in just a few days. It has come to our attention that through banter on the internet that some folks are not sensitive to what is going on in our society today. Please be RESPECTFUL of the CosPlayers at the show. They are not to be touched or harassed in anyway. Common courtesy dictates that you should ask to take their picture before you do so.

In addition, remember that this is a family event and all costumes should be in accordance with family values. If you have a question about your outfit, the answer would be, find a different one. In addition, please remember that there are no prop weapons allowed.

Thanks for being smart and thinking before you cause yourself and someone else embarrassment.


See you soon!

What about the other issue floating around the internet from a while back? I do not remember the Club addressing that one directly and is more important than a few rowdy, classless fans looking to harass people.

If the Club addressed every "issue floating around the internet" then they would scarcely have time to do anything else. Let's do what you should to classless people looking for attention: ignore them.

I tend to agree with you Jyoders, but what that guy did was a violation of both state and federal laws. I’d feel better if there had been a statement issued by the club that yes, there had been a complaint made to law enforcement in the appropriate region and that the issue was being handled. That’s it, we don’t need updates about arrests or anything like that, just a simple reassurance that yes, police were notified and advised of this individual’s threats.

Things are all good for the show. Please note that we will NOT be shipping out FSS 7 figures before the show. They got held up in customs (again) and we just got them today. Truck leaves for show on Friday so there is no time to do this. We will catch up after the show.

We also will not be doing the prior film fest winners showing. We have too many live presenters and Carson M. and Kirk B. have a treat for you from Kirk's "home movies".

Convention will be a fun, SAFE, family event. See you there!

Thank you for addressing the issue, albeit in as vague a fashion as possible. I think that is all people wanted to hear/see to alleviate their concerns.

Hello FSS 7.0 Subscribers:

Unfortunately the shipment was held up in Customs, so we were unable to get anything shipped to you before the Convention. We will be sending the first two shipments almost back to back as soon as we return form the show. The installment billings will now be July 16th, and August 15th.

Please keep your shipping up-to-date as well as your CC information if you are on the installment plan. Click here (http://www.mastercollector.com/fss/event.cfm?eid=1016) for updates.

Thanks for your patience and hope to see you all at GIJoeCon!
